The camera uses SD cards. I assume your new card is 8GB, not 8MB as you stated. If this is the case, it's an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work in the SD-only camera. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller. You may download a copy of the manual here.
The box may say you can use a card up to 8GB but since it can only use SD cards (not SDHC), the box seems to be in conflict with reality. Besides, the camera is only a 4 megapixel camera so you will be able to take hundreds of pictures with a 2GB card.
This Canon uses an SD memory card (previous Canon used CF cards).
The SD memory card has a "slide switch" that locks the card.
Look at the SD memory card and move the switch back and forth, then switch it all the way to the UNLOCK position. Put back in the camera and format the card, then use it.
Since this is a 10Megapixel camera, use at least a 2GB SD memory card. A 2GB SD card will hold 700 pictures, or so, in the best setting.
This will depend upon what megapixel rating your camera is, and what quality setting you keep on it. Here is an example, I have a 7.1 megapixel camera and I use the best quality setting, and I get 919 pictures on my 2GB card.
wahoo!just been rummaging the internet and i have found that these cameras will only take up to a 1gb memory card!so just get a smaller size card The camera has 16 MB of internal memory. Memory capacity can be expanded with 16MB, 32MB, 64MB, 128MB, 256MB, 512MB up to a maximum of 1 GB SD or MMC cards.
