I have a canon powershot sx200 IS and I recently went on vacation and took a lot of pictures using teh SD memory card provided with the camera. For some reason, after almost filling the card I received a memory card locked error. I checked the card, it was not locked. I even tried in another camera and same error. So I got a new SD card, took more photos and then all of those photos were erased. I could not find them when reviewing on the camera, another camera, or even with a USB card reader. A
The likely reason this keeps happening is that these cards weren't formatted in the camera when you first got them. However, don't do so just yet as formatting also erases the card. If you are using a memory card, take no more pics until you've reco ... Canon PowerShot SX 200 IS Digital Camera

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...
