Had my ixus for a couple of years, excellent camera but a few months back started getting message saying "memory card error".

    From advice here, purchased a new memory card (compact flash). The new memory worked fine for a few days but now I am getting the same message with the new memory card......I am off to New York next week and don't want to be without my camera and no time to send it off to be looked at.

    ?? appears to be a fault it he camera, what would cause this. Is there anything else I can try


    Have u tried formatting the cards either on the camera or on your comp?

    Possibly theres a hardware update online? I know i had to do one on my casio for clearer/quicker pictures.

    There is a lot of info on the net about this issue that seems to affect a lot of Ixus cameras…s3/

    just use google…ta=

    and all will be revealed. Good luck

    Much appreciated guys.

    Don't really understand what formatting means, especially with a compact flash. The instructions did not say needed formatting.

    The new memory worked fine for a few days with no error messages

    Will try what you all suggested over weekend..........wish me luck
