I have a canon eos 20d. I used a different memory card reader to download pictures onto my pc. When I put the memory card back into my camera, I got a CF reading.

When I put the memory card in the camera it says 'cannot read' it. How do I format the card? I know it has the right 'size' memory. The memory card I am using is the same one I used a few months ago and I saved the pictures I took to a computer and erased the pictures off the card. Now as soon as I turn the camera on it says 'This card cannot be read'. Im frustrated as there is nothing in the manual that seems to get my camera working again. I have only had it for a year. Please HELP!

Hi, I have a Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS. It says the memory card is locked every time I insert it even though it isn't. I tried several cards to eliminate the possibility the card was bad. I received a repair estimate at $79, because the card reading board needs to be replaced. Am I being scammed or is it a fair estimate? Is it worth it or is it better to invest in a new camera? This one is not even 2 years old...

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.

I just got a second hand bought Kodak EasyShare C913 camera. After I got it I took only 7 pictures, after that it wouldn't let me take any others because it would say 'internal memory is full.'

I don't know much on cameras I just want to use it for pictures and then to upload them onto my computer. Please he

I have a Kodak easyshare m320 which I recieved today. I bought an SD card to go with it because the internal memory is really small. Near the card port, it says it accepts SD cards, and it also says this on the manual, but the card I bought for it is not being read by the camera. I can put the card in my computer and it works fine, though, so I don't know what the problem is. Do I need to do something to my camera in order to make it use the card rather than internal memory?
First, with no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Then, insert the card and do the "format" thing again to optimize the card for the camera. Now, it should work pro ... Kodak EasyShare CX7430 Digital Camera
