Erase All button is grayed out on my Canon Powershot SD550

\015 I had just received advice on how to erase the card by pushing the menu button and then selecting 'erase all'. However, the erase all selection is grayed out and can't be selected along with the other selections on that screen.\015

Answers :

Okay. You can try resetting the unit to factory default. But I just want to warn you that this will delete all settings on your camera.

To RESET it to factory defaults, all you have to do is go to the Tools menu. This is the hammer and wrench tool I guess. And then hit Reset All.

I accidentally pressed the formatting button on my digital camera, canon powershot SD790 IS. Not knowing it erases all pictures. My question is can i get my pictures back, and if so how?


The answer is it depends on whether or not you conducted a "low level" format or not. Such a format will actually write over the card making photo recovery unlikely. But with Canon cameras, format is normally a quick erase (which is recoverable), U ... Canon PowerShot SD790 IS Digital Camera

Canon SD750 The camera tells me there are "No Images". Yet, it also tells me that "The Memory Card" is full. I shot video just to see it, brand new camera using the 32mb card, and now, nothing. Can't shoot stills, anything, because it's full in its mind. I found the erase option. It's grayed out, meaning it's not at option because there's nothing to erase according to the camera. Any ideas. Is the stock card **** and this is Canon's way to upgrade?
