SOURCE: File Error?? Please help
I found a solution to the problem.
1. Upload all the pictures to the computer and save them.
2. Press the Menu button. (On my computer, it says "Menu/ok.)
3. Scroll to "Setup 2" button.
4. Go to Format, and press "yes."
5. Go to reset and press "yes."
All your pictures will be cleared and there won't be any file error, and as for the deleted pictures, you will have already saved them on your computer.
I hope this helps.
And by the way, I wouldn't buy a new disk, because the same problem is bound to occur again sometime, and you'd have to buy a new disk everytime.

Alkaline batteries just don't have the power for more than a few pics in a digital camera. Some may have reached their shelf life, and though brand new may even have problems just powering startup of the camera. Digital cameras for the most part should only be used with rechargeable NiMH batteries. Retailers sell these for around $7 for a package of four (about $15-19 for the batteries with charger). Keep in mind they'll save you big bucks in the long run over alkalines, AND they'll last for at least 100 pictures per charge (and probably many many more). You'll be very pleased with their performance, and may slap yourself for not buying them sooner. When at the store, look on the package for a power rating of at least 2500 mah.

I'm not familiar with the model PC1045, but the problem you are describing sounds like a known issue with the PowerShot CCD Image Sensor. For certain models, Canon is offering to fix it free of charge (including shipping). Here is the link to Canon's bulletin:

I had the exact problem with my SD600, which I had purchased in Jan 2007 (needless to say it was beyond it's warranty). I called Canon and it would cost me $99 just to have it looked at, and then any additional $$ for pars, shipping and taxes. It was suggested to take it to a local Canon Service Center, which I found in Irvine (through http://www.yelp.com/biz/canon-factory-service-center-irvine). They were able to repair my camera free of charge and would've sent it free of charge, but I was close enough to pick it up. And it only took 4 days for them to repair it. Please pass along this info!
