Fujifilm s20pro using batteries too fast

The batteries in my canon powershot A460 get used out really fast. Too fast! I tried using rechargable and unrechargable batteries, bought a whole bunch by now and allways the same problem.

FujiFilm s700 I recently tried to use and 8 gb card with my s700. I actually could use it. however when i tried to download the photos the camera would not turn on. I changed the batteries and cleaned the battery nodes but it still doesn't turn on. I do have a 2 gb card which I use regularly but it seems to be the 8 gb card that is the problem. I really don't know and if you can you help me i would appreciate it.

I have a kodak z8121s and I have been running it with regular aa batteries but it uses them up so fast so I decided to go ahead and spend over $100 to buy the kodak lithium 3.7v rechargable battery klic8000 with a charger and guess what the battery will not work in my camera.
