My Canon 600D was showing "Card write error".

I took out my SD card and noticed that the write-protect lock was broken, so I bought a new one.

I am still getting the same error on the new card although it is not locked. The new card works fine in a computer.

    What is the exact wording of the error? If it just says "write error" that may not be related to the write-protect lock on the card. – thomasrutter Oct 26 '15 at 2:49

    Did you try the cards in a computer or any other camera? – kamuro Oct 26 '15 at 13:08

  • The card works fine with a computer. It gives the same error with a new card as well :( – Pranet Patra Oct 31 '15 at 23:04
  • Agree with James. Take your Canon 600D to nearest showroom. ****Maybe the lock of old card is stuck in the slot.**** – user46239 Nov 9 '15 at 10:44

Either your 600D has failed and needs servicing or the new card you have purchased is not compatible with your camera.

I would recommend that you consult Canon's service department or, if cost is an issue, a local repairer. Most camera shops will be offer a service or be able to put you in touch with someone.

  • "Either your 600D has failed and needs servicing or the new card you have purchased is not compatible with your camera." - quite possible though, OP might have bought SDXC. – Euri Pinhollow Mar 24 '16 at 9:07

Dude, I hit the same issue a long time back; totally messed up my 600D. I even bought new SD cards and tried, but nothing worked. I finally understood that it had a problem with the SD card slot that holds the SD card. Go to a service center and change the card slot, it costs approximately 2000 INR (30$).
