Any size SD card will work. The capacity limit is with the card, not the camera. All the camera does is serve as a recorder/reader for the card.

SOURCE: Can't unlock 4gb sd memory card
There's a tiny slide switch on the side of the card. Slide it to the other position and try again.
But one thing I've noticed is that you mention that the card is 4GB. As such, it's likely that this card is an SDHC card. There is also a possibility that your A540 camera is not recognizing the card as the SDHC format came out well after the A540 was designed.
If you're still having problems with your 4GB card, recommend trying again with a standard SD card (2GB or less). 2GB standard SD cards are very inexpensive, and can be found on Amazon for about $7 with free shipping.
And hang onto the 4GB card. It will come in handy again someday.

Does your camera support SD HC? Anything above a 2gb SD card is concider a HC; so if your camera can't support HC format then you can not use that card.

Testimonial: "hi,thanks for the quick response,i don,t know if it has what you said.it just says on the bottom of the camera..digimax s600 cyber/630."
Your problem is that your camera only takes standard SD cards up to a maximum of 2GB. The card you have bought is likely to be a 4GB SDHC model. SDHC is a later development of SD; SDHC compliant devices can still use older SD cards, but SD-only devices cannot use SDHC. This is a hardware limitation so there is no way at all to use an SDHC card in your camera.
Note that if your 4GB card is definitely an SD and not an SDHC then it's still incompatible with your camera: very few standard SD devices were ever made with the firmware and hardware to handle the different memory addressing architecture used by the larger capacity card. Some cameras did have firmware updates to allow the larger SD card to be used, but yours is not one of them.
Your only fix is to sell your card (or keep it for another device) and to buy a regular SD card no larger than 2GB maximum capacity.
