Question about Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera
Everything was dandy until my batteries died. i went to the store and bought new ones, loaded them up and now i can't use it. it beeps 4 times every time i try to snap a shot and across the top of the screen it says, "naming error". what do i do?
I just fixed mine. Put your memory card into your computer. Right click on it. Choose format. Reformat the memory card. You WILL lose all pictures stored on it.
Before putting the memory card into your camera, do the following.
Go to MENU and choose RESET ALL.
Choose reset to original settings.
When camera is done doing so, turn camera off.
Reinsert memory card after it is done being formated in your pc.
Then your camera and memory card should work great again. I just did it on my Canon Powershot A620.

From "Tom Friend" on dpchallenge.com
Steps to try to correct the "change battery" problem with S2 IS camera:
1. Reset the camera, (turn on, hold down 'MENU' for 5 seconds, answer 'OK'.
2. Remove the date/time battery (button cell in the battery compartment) for a minute.
3. Important: Insert freshly charged batteries into the camera.

I just got this 'naming error' for the first time today and I've had my canon for 5 years. It's a new 2GB card I bought and I can still see all of my pics. Does anyone have any idea how to fix this problem? I'm travelling for a while and don't have the space to let this happen.
