Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD500 / IXUS 700 Digital Camera ?

I'd like to delete all the pics on the card, but its not allowing me to.


Answers :

Check thath the pictures are not 'protected' and the card is not in 'lock'-position. If you're not able to delete the pictures in the camera, use a card reader and delete them in the computer. You can also 'move' the pictures during download instead of just 'copy' them. This will clear the card. Also formatting the card will erase any files on the card.
