Having problems with your Canon Digital Cameras ?

No matter what memory card I put in my Canon A75, the message "Memory Card Error" comes up in the display window? Is this old friend of mine trashed?


Answers :

You could try formatting your memory card. You will lose all pictures saved on the card when you do it though. So make sure everything's saved elsewhere first. (You could burn them to a cd or a USB flashdrive) The option to format your card should be under the settings menu. If that doesn't work, it's possible that it might be time to upgrade :/

I won a Canon PowerPoint S3 IS at an eBay auction; it was in the working camera listings. It turned out that in the finer detail, the owner said that everything worked except for the "Memory Card Error" found in the display window. I posted this a few days ago. I now have the camera, and I've tried two different memory cards (one came out of another Canon PowerPoint, and it does work) and neither works. Still have the same message;"Memory Card Error." This item was incorrectly listed as working.

I have a Canon A400 that is displaying the common 'memory card error' message. I've been through most of the tricks that I've found on the Internet but still no success. Tried multiple memory cards, compressed air and formatting the card. For some reason when I try to format any card it shuts off the camera completely when I select that option from the menu. Any ideas out there?

So I took the family to Luray Caverns in Virginia last week, and took lots of pictures of my wife and kids in the caverns. As my six year old leaned over the "fried eggs" formation, my Canon A570is beeped. The screen showed the battery was running low, and then the dreaded "memory card error" came up. Are all my pics lost, or is there a way to recover them. I'm using rechargeable batteries, and have not checked the CR1220 internal battery. I'm also using a 4 year old class 2 - 2Gb SD card.
