My Cannon s5si keeps saying busy after I take a picture


Answers :

If possible, test your camera with a different memory card. If the issue goes away, there may be corrupt data or bad sectors on your card. You may try formatting the card in your camera to see if it resolves this issue. (Note that formatting will erase all data from the card. Be sure to save any files you wish to keep before formatting the card.)
