Question about Cameras

I have a Canon Power Shot A620. I just put in a new PNY 4 GB memory card (have used others before). The new card says "memory card error" and "card locked". I have put it in several times and turned the camera off and on but it will not format it. What can I do?

In this case on the memory card itself u will see a small slide switch just slide that switch to the opposite direction and that will fix the problem

The A620 works with MMC and SD cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they will not work. You need to use SD cards 2GB and smaller.

Is a PNY SDHC 4 GB Memory Card compatible with a Canon PowerShot A530 camera? The card currently in the camera is not a HC card.


I think the maximum size card you can use in the power shot is a 1Gb card unless nes firmware has been istalled to allow 2Gb card.
Using large capacity cards also delays the write recovery time. So if you are trying to capture moving objects , often you get one shot and then it takes almost 20 seconds to recover for the next pic. Too late for most things that move

hope this was of some help

Some cameras cannot handle over 2GB memory cards. If it works fine with 2GB card - stick to that. If some other A620 you know operates with 4GB card, take yours to repairs.

I put a brand new SanDisk SDHC 4 GB memory card in and it says "memory card error; card is locked".


I also own an A620, but unfortunately I also learned the hard way that SDHC cards are not compatible with this camera. The A620 was designed before the newer SDHC format came out, thus although they look exactly the same, your camera will never work with these cards. Your camera uses standard SD cards (2GB or less). There are some standard 4GB SD cards, but they are very rare these days, and costly.

I just bought my Canon Power Shot A560 today, but almost immedantly i put the memory card in a message came on the camera screen to say the memory card was full. Why is this happening?


sounds strange-you sure there is nothing on card?-format the memory card from menu and that will clear card-is this card that came with camera or card you bought with it-i'd use a 2 gb sandisk or pny and you should have no problems
