Although it looks exactly the same as a standard SD card, the format the SDHC 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.

The following is an answer taken from site: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20101220203847AAmODI4
"You can try a hard restart:
- put fresh batteries in the camera but no memory card;
- double click the on/off button so the camera turns on, then off;
- hit the button again and, hopefully, it will start normally.
If this doesn't help, call Canon tech support. E-series error codes may indicate hardware or firmware issues that need professional repair. In the U.S. the Canon customer support phone number is: 1-800-OK-CANON."
Hope this will help. Best of luck.

The most common problems in these small tiny cameras is the lens alignment. If you drop the camera with the lens extended this alignment will ****. If you are a handyman you can fix it by yourself by oppening it inside and realign/putting the lens in right position. Sometimes you can do that by forcing them to extednd manualy but that is very risky. If not handyman I recomand you to take it to a repair shop.

The problem is related to the mechanics in the optical image stabilization. There are 2 plastic ball bearings inside the shutter/lens module that can pop out of their round holders that are held in by 2 springs. This can occur by simply dropping the camera with the lens extended. I fixed many of these particular models and would not recommend an amateur attempt the fix as the complete lens has to be disassembled. A very poor Canon lens design.
