I want to replace the memory chip in my Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS camera with a larger one but leave the photos taken on the original memory card on the camera.

When I read the chip with a card reader, I do see the images. I want to be able to see those images on the camera (so I can use it as a viewer to share my photos

Recently, my Canon Powershot A95 has had an intermittent LCD display problem. While beginning to frame and focus a shot, the image streaks from edge to edge of the screen. If the shutter is snapped, that is the image recorded. The image looks like the subject is rapidly moving, or as though it is a time-lapse photo. Could this be a CCD (chip)issue?

This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free worldwide, and may also include free shipping both ways (free shipping varies with countries). This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. ... Canon PowerShot A95 Digital Camera
