Hi there, welcome to FixYa.

\015\012Let's work on the camera first.
\015\0121) Turn the camera off and remove the battery and the card.
\015\0122) Put the battery back in without the card and turn it on.
\015\0123) Turn the camera off and insert the CF card.
\015\0124) Turn the camera back on again.
\015\012See if that takes the message away.

\015\012If it doesn't leave me a comment and we go to step 2.
\015\012If it does, thanks for coming to FixYa.

I have a new Canon A3300 IS and a new SanDisk SDHC 4 GB memory card. It's worked fine for a few days, and now suddenly, I get a "Memory card error" message, and the camera won't work.

Card error I have a e-1. Two memory cards with 1 and 2 gb. I get a "card error" message when I insert either into the camera. I brought it to one camera shop. They said that a couple of the pins (that connect the memory card to the brains of the camera) were bent. Recently took it to another repair shop and he inserted a card with less memory and the camera worked. Is it the cards or the camera? Will the camera work (with bent pins or whatever) if I get a new memory card?

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.
