The 30-minute limit is not a technical glitch or a failure of your SD card to perform correctly. Rather it's an intentinal limit that the manufacturer has incorporated in order to keep the camera from being taxed as a video camera under one or more international trade agreements. If the time limit is a show-stopper, you'll have to buy a camcorder instead.

 

If the camera won't record at all, try reformatting the card, and make sure the write protection switch that most SD cards have isn't turned on.

Reformatting is a menu item. I believe that on most Canon cameras it's in the menu headed by a small icon of a wrench.

 

The write protection switch is a tiny slide switch on the edge of the SD card itself.

Didn't you say in your initial post that you have already removed all photos and videos from the card?

That's a standard warning that pops up.

 

If you press the blue playback arrow does anything show on the camera LCD?
