Locked Card Does anyone know how to unlock a memory card on the Optio W20? I follow the instructions (press 4-way controller down in play mode, select protect, hit ok) but then I don't get the same screen as what the instructions say will appear. I'm supposed to see a screen than gives me the option of protecting one image or all images, then there should be one that says protect or unprotect.

Canon SD750 The camera tells me there are "No Images". Yet, it also tells me that "The Memory Card" is full. I shot video just to see it, brand new camera using the 32mb card, and now, nothing. Can't shoot stills, anything, because it's full in its mind. I found the erase option. It's grayed out, meaning it's not at option because there's nothing to erase according to the camera. Any ideas.
