Thank you. That is the issue. Like many other older camera models, your camera model does not support SDHC memory card type, which has size of 4GB or higher. Your camera only support SD memory card type, which has size of 2GB or less. Can you please try with an SD memory card? I recommend to get a 2GB SD memory card. Please reply at the box below. Thank you,

Also, please click on the Canon website below for your Canon PowerShot A520 specifications.https://www.usa.canon.com/internet/portal/us/home/support/details/cameras/support-point-and-shoot/powershot-a-series/powershot-a520, then scroll down to the section Image Storage. Then there, you will see that the Storage Media is SD memory card (not SDHC memory card.) So as long as you use an SD memory card (which has size of 2GB or less), then it will work on your Canon camera model A520.- Also, the above Canon website has the manual for your camera, if you need.Please reply at the box below to continue. Thank you,
