Re: Memory card error

The major brand of SD card is called "SanDisk"

https://www.sandisk.com/

 

I have used cards for years with no problems. I think you need a name brand card like SanDisk, Lexar and PNY.

 

I assume you are using a full size SD card. If it is microSD, you are doubly cursed. Get a full size, name brand SD card.

Re: Memory card error

I have an older SX10 IS camera.  I have never used it to record video, but it was suggested by a friend, when I mentioned I was taking a trip and was thinking of buying a new movie camera, to use the SX10 and record movie video with it.  Seems logical, but what size capacity SD, SDHC card would work?

 

A few nights ago, I bought a 64 Gig Ultra Plus San Disk and it would not format.  It appears this card may be too new for the camera!  Any suggestions?

Hi, bandaid!

 

The PowerShot SX10 IS came out in 2008, prior to the introduction of SDXC cards.  You can use SD and SDHC cards up to 32GB in size.  Be sure to format each new card before using it.

 

We hope this helps!

Re: Memory card error

Thanks Danny,

 

     I just returned the 64 Gigb Ultra card and bought 2, 8 gig SDHC cards.  The shop owner was not sure if I could use anything higher, but these will work to test the video capabilities of this camers.

Re: Memory card error

when I place a memory card into my Canon 200x I am told "card read error". I have tried several and it says the same thing. What is the problem?

Re: Memory card error

Hi, I have a Canon SX 30 with a 32 Gig Sony memory Card. I'm finding that occasionaly when I take a photo and try to review it, the display will say "unidentifed Picture" with a question mark in place of the photo. Any ideas as to why?

Re: Memory card error

I think ytou hjave the same problem I have with the memory card.  It is probably too big for the camera.  I'll bet if you drop down to a 16 bit card, you will be ok.  In my case, I was wanting to use my camera as a  movie camera, rather than having to take two cameras on a trip.  Guess I am back to taking the two cameras, as the digital film is less expensive than taking a whole bundle of 16 gig cards!
