Memory card error

Out of nowhere, I came up with a memory card error on my canon power shot sx 200 is. Any suggestions on how to correct the problem?

Re: Memory card error

If there is nothing in the card, you can try to reformat the card inside the camera.

Re: Memory card error

brand new Power Shot elph 115 Bundle  out of box...MEMORY CARD ERROR (Dane Elec sdhc).  Camera format did not work.  Old SD card worked to take a few mother's day pix.  Why would bundled card not work in new camera ????

Re: Memory card error

Like all items, some of them are dead on arrival. It's pretyt normal and it could be manufacture error, defective product, shipping and/or packing damage, etc...If it is new, you can exchange for another one.

Hi JerryButorac,

 

As Hsbn mentioned, if you've saved your images and movies to your computer, I'd recommend formatting the memory card.  If you're unable to do this, I recommend trying a second memory card.  If the memory card error persists unfortunately, your camera will require repair.

Re: Memory card error

The best (most dependable, error free) Memory cards are Sandisk brand.. Off the wall brands are iffy at best. Recommonded are name brand cards.
