Did you mean: 

my t4i will not read any SD cards

When I try to take a picture, it says: "Card cannot be accessed.  Reinsert/change card or format card with camera."

 

So, I try to format the cards, and it says "Cannot format.  Change card."

 

I have used both these cards before and never had a problem, this just happened all of the sudden.

 

I even tried re-formatting the cards on my computer, but no luck.

I don't think I'd hold my breath waiting for "evanjamesmommy" to click the button. It's been more than two years since she posted to this thread.

This seems to be a common problem with canon cameras. I have had my T4i for three years now and today is the first day it will no longer read memory cards. Have tried 3 different cards all have the same result they will not work in the camera.
