SOURCE: Memory Card Error
Chances are that the contacts in the card slot are either dirty or worn out. First thing I would try would be to try blow out the card slot. I suggest caned air, You could use a straw and Puffs of breath, but keep it dry. If that doesn’t work put a lint free cloth over a piece of cardboard about the same size as a memory stick. Be vary careful that it is not thicker then the memory stick. Dampen the end with Alcohol (Denatured Alcohol is best but standard rubbing alcohol might work in a pinch). I repeat, dampen with alcohol not dripping wet. Remove the battery just to be sure. Insert the swab into the card slot a half of a dozen times when you pull it out look to see if you see any residue on the swab. Hopefully you see dark stripes on the cloth. Let the camera sit with an empty slot (and no battery) for a hour before you try it again.
If all that fails the last chance (short of replacing the card reader) try to put some electrical tape on the memory stick on the side opposite from the gold contacts, be carful not to cover the contacts. Try one piece of type at a time and DON’T force the memory stick into the slot This will slightly increase the pressure on the contacts inside the card reader slot. If you have to resort to this be carful that the tape sticks completely and that it is neatly trimmed, you don’t want the type coming off inside the cameras. If this works you will need to add tape to all memory sticks used in this camera. I would NOT use any “taped” sticks in any other readers without removing the tape first.

It's a good bet that anything 4GB or greater is a SDHC card (look on the card, see if SDHC is written there). Your A530 was designed before the new SDHC format came out. Sorry, but your camera will not recognize this type of card. Recommend instead that you get a 2GB standard SD card. They're relatively inexpensive these days.

Does you camera use CF cards?
If so the may work but some of the newer high tech CF cards are made for newer cameras.
It may be worth a shot to try the 2GB card and if it does not work, sell to someone who uses those.

I'm sorry to tell that PowerShot SD 630 does not support SDHC cards over 2 gig.
If you want the camera to take a card over 2 gig then you are stuck standard SD cards.
The other camera does support the card because it's a higher model.
