Just like other cameras Canon camera also have a memory card. There are some common problems that a user faces with a memory card

This article will summarize the solution of some common problems related to a memory card. 

The speed of memory card- Sometimes it becomes necessary to transfer the data from the memory card to another storage device. Some users complaints that their memory card is running very low. This problem might be due to the speed rating. Every memory card has speed rating which indicates a speed during the transfer of data from memory card to another storage device. If the memory card has slow speeding rate then transferring the data will take longer time, to overcome this replace the card with new one. 

Sometimes formatting of memory card also works out for this.

A memory card is locked- All memory cards have a lock along their sides. When a memory card is in lock position it will not store any data in it and it will instruct a user by a message indicating that a memory card is locked.  The solution for this problem is very simple, just unlock the memory card by a button on its side. If this doesn’t work. Toggle the switch three to four times and unlock it again. If still doesn’t work out, simply format the memory card. 

Error message- Sometimes an error message indicating that memory card cannot be used appears on the screen. This problem might have several reasons. The first basic step to solve this problem is to turn OFF the camera and remove the memory card. Wait for some time and insert it again and try again to take some photos. If this doesn’t work out, simply format the memory card.
