I have a new canon power shot a580 and have used a kodak 2gb memory card. I started with an empty card, took approx 30 pictures and then "memory card error" shows up on my little screen. I can't retrieve the existing pictures or take any new ones. I'm new to this digital camera thing.. What should I do?

Memory Card I just got my new Canon Power Shot G9. The user guide pictures a different memory card then what came with the camera. The guide shows a memory card that has ribbing and a write protection tab. The memory card that came with the camera does not. It is smooth all around except for one squared off corner. My problem is I cannot figure out, since the guide diagram and the actual card do not match, how the card is inserted into the camera? Please help! Thanks, Liz
They tricked you. The picture in the guide is of an SD card, but the card that came with the G9 is an MMC card. On both, there is a row of brass-colored contacts along one edge. This is what looks like ribbing in the guide. These contacts should go i ... Canon PowerShot G9 Digital Camera

Hi, I have a Canon Power Shot S2 IS 5.0 megapixels that was working fine until one day I changed the memory card from 512MB to a 1GB. Now every time I turn the camera on and try to take a picture, a beeping sound and a legend on the LCD screen that reads: Memory card error. It's like something locked the shutter mechanism. I tried other memory cards with the same results. Thanks, Roger.

I have a new Canon A3300 IS and a new SanDisk SDHC 4 GB memory card. It's worked fine for a few days, and now suddenly, I get a "Memory card error" message, and the camera won't work. I tried reformatting the memory card, but the camera refuses to do it. What happened? I assume I need a new memory card, but I'm afraid that the problem will occur again.
Insert the card into a card reader and format it on the computer. See if that works. Format using FAT32 as its more reliable than the FAT it uses by default. If the camera supports FAT32 you can expect it to last atleast a year before you need to for ... Canon A3300 IS Digital Camera
Hey. I bought a new camera some days ago with a new Digix 4gb SDHC memory card. I went to Disney World and took normally a lot of pictures. From one moment to another, the camera gives me the message "Memory card error" and won't let me take nor view pictures. I tried removing the memory card and everything. I checked and It isn't locked or something. Also, I tried using a memory card reader on my laptop, and it says I have to format to read the card. I REALLY don't want to lose the pictures.

The first thing that may be complicating things is, can your laptop read SDHC cards, or just SD cards? If the laptop is asking you to format it, then probably it's working, but be really sure, before you continue.Check the co ... Digital Cameras
