Look at the memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

If that doesn't work, try another card.

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 hit Format in error and lost 200 -300 pictures I had just taken on holiday. I have tried the program Memory Card Recovery, but couldn't assign the camera to a lettered disk as required. The card couldn't be read on my computer either. The screen then indicated that the card was 'locked' whatever that means, and that there was 'a memory card error'. I hope you can help me.

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 pic
