3 beeps One day my camera was working fine. The next day, I tried to turn it on and the lens came out just a little and then it stopped and beeped three times.

Hi, I have a Canon Power Shot S2 IS 5.0 megapixels that was working fine until one day I changed the memory card from 512MB to a 1GB. Now every time I turn the camera on and try to take a picture, a beeping sound and a legend on the LCD screen that reads: Memory card error. It's like something locked the shutter mechanism.
