Have your new memory card inserted into your PC to test for any virus. Format the memory car.
Please check if your cannon is adaptive to the 4GB (check the instruction manual) if the card shows the same fault now after inserting.
Use another card into the camera to confirm if the card slot is faulty.

Inserted new memory card error message:memory card error unable to access format under menu


I'm guessing that you bought a new 4GB SDHC card. Although it looks exactly the same as a standard SD card, the format the 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.

Make sure your camera is compatible with a 4GB flash card. Some only take 1 or 2 GB cards. If that isn't the issue, format your card inside the camera with the camera's format utility.

Can i use a high speed flash card, because I recently bought 4GB and when replaying the photos, it displays white lines


I would try a high speed flash card. Or a different one either way if you are getting lines. You can also clean the contacts on card and in camera with rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab

I lost my manual ...red light is flashing near compact flash card opening


PDF here.

If that little red light (just below the 4-way control) is flashing it is indication the camera is attempting to communicate with the CF. if it never quits, most commonly the culprit is an unformatted, or corrupt/damaged CF card. Replace the card, and reformat in the camera.

any images on old CF MAY be recoverable with a card reader on your PC, but the camera will not read them. Reformatting will destroy the existing images.

Flash memory card


Perhaps it didn't complete formatting. This happened to my mom and I tried her card in my camera and it wouldn't work there either. We had to replace. You might take it back since you just bought it. That way, you will know if it's the card or the camera.

Dynamite,
have you tried to reformat the CF card?  If you deleted the image through your computer and not with the camera, the computer may have removed more than what was needed...
