Memory card is locked w. Canon Powershot SD1000
\015 Hi, I have a Canon Powershot SD1000 and I used to have a 2GB memory card. However, when I went to a friend's house for a housewarming party and I left my camera on the table. When I was about to leave the camera was gone. So I did some investigating and figured out 2 girls stole my camera. When I reluctantly got it back from them, my memory card was jammed in the wrong way and it said my "card locked." I tried the switch on the side of the memory card, but that did not work. So I thought those girls broke my memory card. So I bought a 4GB memory card instead. I thought that was going to work because I thought those theives just broke my memory card. Now with my 4GB memory card it says "card locked." My questions are: Is there a switch inside the camera that causes the memory card to be locked? Or is my memory card too large for my camera? Or do you think my camera is broken and now needs to be fixed?\015
Your Sd1100 is compatible with a 4gb card, so that's not the issue. If the lock-switch is in the correct position, the only logical conclusion (which you have already come to.....good troubleshooting on your part!) is that the camera is busted. Send your two "friends" the bill. What a drag.

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.

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
