Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD500 / IXUS 700 Digital Camera ?

Can ixus700 upgrade to use 4gb memory card?

\015 Can the canon ixus700 upgraded to use 4gb memory card?\015

Answers :

The ixus 700 is only specified to be compatible with SD memory cards (and MMC cards). The protocol for SD cards only covers up to 2MB. Cards of higher capacity are the SDHC (high capacity) protocol, but this protocol did not exist when the ixus 700 was introduced. As far as I can tell, there is no way to upgrade to be compatible with the newer protocol.

I have a Nikon E5400, ver 1.3. I bought a 4GB Kingston CF card; the package said "formatted and ready to use". On inserting into camera, the message flashed that the card is not formatted. So I proceeded to format. The next message that flashes is "Out of Memory". Questions: 1) is the CF card defective? 2) is E5400 incapable of reading a 4GB CF card, should we use only CF cards <1GB? 3) Will a firmware version upgrade to v1.4 help? 4) Any other reason why this could happen?

Hey. I bought a new camera some days ago with a new Digix 4gb SDHC memory card. I went to Disney World and took normally a lot of pictures.
