Question about Cameras
Hi, I kept getting a "memory card error" on my Canon PowerShot S500 as well. It turns out that one of the pins in the CF memory card slot was bent. Maybe I accidentally bent it while changing the memory card one day. Anyway, I had to take apart the whole camera to get in there and straighten out the pin, but when I put it all back together, it works great! No more errors. Take a look with a flashlight and see if one of your pins are bent. And if you decide to take it apart, be very careful about keeping track of where each screw goes... they are tiny and they are different sizes.
