Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera ?

I have a 4GB SD HC card that works well in my Powerhot SD750 but gives an error code "Memory Card Error" and "Card Locked!" on my PowerShot S2 IS. Is there a fix for this? Peter


Answers :

The S2 IS uses SD cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work. While you can use SDHC cards with the SD750, you will have to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller, with the S2 IS.
