First, make sure the switch on the card is not locked and that you are using an SD or an SDHC card in this camera. There are a few other type of SD cards that will work in these but the most common are SD and SDHC.
If the problem is not the card then you might need to have it repaired. Since you have a canon you can go to www.camerasandparts.com They do wonderful work and they are about half the cost of what canon wants to look at these.
