If your SD card is not formatting correctly on your Canon camera, there are a few things you can do to try and fix the issue. First, make sure that your SD card is properly formatted. This will erase any data on the card, and the camera should then be able to read and write to the card properly. If that does not work, you can try a different SD card. If neither of those solutions work, there may be a problem with the camera.

I hope this post finds you well. If you’re reading this, it’s likely that you’ve encountered a problem with your Canon camera and its SD card. In such cases, it’s often difficult to reformat the card – and that’s where I come in!

1. Turn off your Canon camera.
2. Remove the battery and SD card.
3. Format the SD card in your computer.
4. Replace the battery and SD card in your Canon camera.
