Question about Canon PowerShot S230 / IXUS 179 Digital Camera
You might have a bent pin in the CF slot. Take a look inside this slot to verify. If so, remove the battery and card. Use a small/skinny jeweler's flat screwdriver to bend the pin back as close as possible. Take your time and use as much patience as you can muster (take a breather in between if needed).
It doesn't have to be perfect, just as close as you can get it. When it's there, take your flash card and "SLOWLY" insert it. The card itself should fine-align the pin. Remove the card, and verify that the pin is still straightened. If so, reinsert the card and try it out.
