How to format an SD card on a Canon SD600 camera when the menu says "memory card locked." The memory card is in the unlocked position. When we put the SD card in another Canon camera (SD780 IS), it works fine, and will store a photo. It appears that something in the SD 600 camera itself is preventing the card from functioning. Can you offer a solution to this problem?
Could be that you have the wrong memory card.\012SD600 will only work with the old SD cards, but the SD780 will take the SDHC cards.SDHC was intended to give 4gb or more of storage, while the old SD started as 16 mb. Different camer ... Canon PowerShot SD600 Digital Camera

Memory Card Locked The card works fine in my other Canon Camera, but not in my A620. I've switched out the cards and nothing works in my A620, but they all work in my other Canon. Memory Card Locked is all I get in the 620 and nothing works on camera. Lens comes out and the LCD screen lights up, but that is it. Any help would be appreciated. Jeff
I'm assuming the slide switch on the side of the card is in the correct position. In order for a card to work in a particular camera, it must first be formatted in that camera. This completely erases it so download any pictures still on it to your co ... Digital Cameras

Canon SD900 selection options not responsive. The selector wheel, Function Set button and menu selector only work from time to time. Even if pressing the ring brings up info to the LCD, nothing can be changed because the Function Button and the Menu button are not active. This is a random problem. Sometime, I can bring all functions back to life by removing and re-inserting the battery and restarting.
