Question about Canon PowerShot SD500 / IXUS 700 Digital Camera
OK unfortunately your camera only supports a memory card up to 2GB. Fortunately there is a firmware update which might resolve the problem, however, this is not legit firmware supplied by Canon, hence, the full effect of the upgrade is not described.
You can have a look at the following link, to see if your camera is at the international standard firmware version.
I also need to mention that it is rather "Dicey" to upgrade the firmware of your camera yourself, because any faulty connection in mid - updating will result in a totally useless unit. So, if you have the time, take it to your nearest service center, let them check if there is any upgrades available, and upgrade the firmware.
Also, i have not found any firmware upgrade which is a newer version since the camera was manufactured.
You can have a look at the other update i mentioned at the link below.
I really hope you can get this resolved, although i doubt that the firmware available for this unit will sort the problem out. I also understand the fact that you don't want to pay for an answer which states that there is nothing to be done, but you will need to understand, if the camera is hardware limited to a 2GB card, no software can change it.
Please feel free to let me know if you need any further assistance.
