Question about Canon PowerShot S400 / IXUS 400 Digital Camera
Try inserting other compact flash cards, if the fault occurs with any card the camera can be assumed faulty. Sometimes the pins which connect to the card can become damaged when inserting and require straightening or replacement. You will need to have a service centre repair it for you. Good luck!

This is a known "Service Notice" issue announced by Canon.
You'll notice thousands of consumers reporting the exact same problem including myself.
It takes too long to power on the camera, then when it does, it won't take any pictures then after 10 sec or so, "'Memory Card Error" displays. Hitting menu button does not work nor Preview/Playback mode (green light flashes). Camera powers off in 2 min.
Here's THE Solution from Canon - the phone customer rep was super helpful and issued a free UPS return shipping label along with instructions for free repair:
Since this is a known issue, if it indeed is this issue, Canon will repair it regardless of warranty validity. It takes 2 - 2.5 weeks from shipping out your camera to get it back repaired. Hope this resolves your issue as well!
