Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera ?

Can changing settings delete the memory card?

\015 I am an amatuer photographer and was changing some settings under the menu screen while flying home on the plane. Today I went to download my newest shots and nothing is there. Is there a way to re-convert back to my original settings or to somehow find these missing shots.\015\012\015\012Sincerely,\015\012\015\012totally bummed\015

When I upload photos onto my computer from my memory card, there are always two copies of each photo. One copy seems true to life and the other is slightly saturated and grainy. It's frustrating that I have to go through and delete every other photo, and it of course takes twice the amont of time to upload. Is there a setting or something that I can change on my Canon? I have the G10. Thanks!

I played around a bit with the settings, but it will only take 5 to 10 photos before no it stops taking photos. It used to hold 100+ with the memory card I have. Help?

Hi, I've a Panasonic LUMIX FZ38 (fw version 1.0). When I want to clear the SDHC content via pc (camera in Mass Memory Mode), or to transfer the pictures via cut, it says ''Unable to delete...the storage card is write protected''. but my card isn't protected! And it's impossible to set the photo folder out of ''Read Only Mode''. Instead, if I put the same SDHC in a memory card reader, I can do everything I want. Do you think it's normal?
