I have a Cannon Power Shot SD770 IS Digital 10 mega pixels for over a year, I have been able to take many pictures at a time, then my daughter used it to take a few shots, now after eight pictures are taken, it says the memory card is full. I have reset the camera back to default, and changed out the memory card, I am still have problems, can you help?
