Question about Canon PowerShot SD400 / IXUS 50 Digital Camera
Accidentally dropped in snow, dried it off, took out memory card and battery and dried off with paper towel-shoveled snow for about 1/2 hr./ 45 min and came back to check. Beeps repeatedly when turned to camera on and zoom lens not working. Dried a minute inside battery compartment w/ hair drier and again removed battery and memory card. Ruined battery or camera I wonder? Hopefully it just needs to dry out-would really appreciate any help. This model is actually PowerShot SD400 Digital ELPH-Thank you!
Where on earth do you find snow this time of year ? If moisture has got inside the camera, chances are it's ruined, I'm afraid.

I'm guessing you bought a new 4GB SDHC card. Although it looks exactly the same as a standard SD card, the format the card uses is very different. Unfortunately your camera was designed before the SDHC format came out. Sorry, but a SDHC card will not work with your camera.
You'll need to use standard SD cards (usually those 2GB or less). But if you really want to use a 4GB card, do a Google search for 4GB SD "non HC", with the non HC in quotes. Believe Transcend makes one.
