Memory card I bought a Photosmart 435 which I never could get to recognize that the memory card was inserted. I even bought a 2nd card thinking that the first must be broken. That did not work.

Memory Card I just got my new Canon Power Shot G9. The user guide pictures a different memory card then what came with the camera.
