My Canon SD950 IS camera will take about 30 seconds to take a flash picture. You have to hold down the shutter button for a long time. The flash indicator flashes on the display for quite a while and then the picture is finally taken. This seems to have happened after the battery was run down to nothing. After that, this flash problem appeared. I have got another battery but this still happens. I have reset to default settings as well . Still has problem. What is wrong?

My brand new Handycam CX110 stops recording after a few seconds and the error message, "Buffer Overflow" comes up. I researched this and that happens with Handycam cameras with a hard drive when there is loud noise. Why is it happening with mine when I only use a memory stick in my camera? Do I need to return the camera? I am not recording in loud areas, anyway!
