Photos not saving to memory card

Hello I jist purchased a rebel t6 eos1300d I put in the memory card that cane with it and the photos in taking are not saving to the memory card. I've trying to format the card and it's still not working. What am I doing wrong?

Re: Photos not saving to memory card

What brand and memory capacity is the card?  Did you perform a "low level format" on the card, after you inserted it in the camera? 

 

Cards need to be properly formatted before that can be used.  Memory cards may have some default formatting scheme on them when you first open the packaging.  The formatting that might initially be present are remnants of factory testing, and needs to be completely wiped.

I think that camera uses SD style cards so make sure the LOCK tab is in the correct position for the camera to write to the card. That lock tab should be at the end closest to the terminals of the card.

Any card that came with a camera is probably generic and might not be the best quality. You may want to get a name brand card.
