My wife's Canon Powershot SD 790 IS is displaying a "no memory card" message when the camera is turned on.

There is a memory card in the slot. I have even tried a different memory card and same issue. When I put the memory card into a card reader all of the pics are there, etc.

I believe it has something to do with the camera not reading/recognizing the card. Just wondering if anyone knows of this issue or has any suggestions.

I believe I will have to get it repaired.

Thank you!

my SD900 has a small switch to detect the card. it is tripped by the card on the oppsite side of the card lock, you may try to force the card into this direction with a paper shim, might work

If you have a card reader you can check the card out on your computer/tablet to see if the card is defective. If not then it could be a camera problem./

It's not the card. Tried 10 different cards that all work in other machines and cameras.
