I have a canon powershot sx110is and when i turn it on it will not take any pictures but instead gives the message "memory card error."

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
