Canon SD Card

To all you Guru's...

Just bought a 2GB San Disk SD card off a generic auction site. I put it in my camera (Canon Powershot S2 IS) and there is an intermittent "Card Error" and "Card Locked". As I said, it is intermittent, some times it does, and sometimes it doesn't. A guy from work took it home with him and formatted it, but it still didn't work.

Any ideas why this is happening, and any way I can cure it?

Thanks in advance,

Nick

Have you looked at the contacts to make sure they are clean? Tried it in your own pc (if you don't have a card reader, get one it will save loads of time uploading images)

The contacts are fine. I can't find anywhere that states the limitations on my camera (card size).

On your second point, sounds good to me. Any recommendations?

Can you format it through your camera?

I have a Sandisk that seem excellent, Jessops stock them as do most online places.

The point about cards size may well be valid though..

This review speaks of using 2gb cards so I reckon that's not your problem.

The camera will not let me format the card if it locked. When it wants to work, it lets me, but nothing changes. I use a Viking 512Mb which works fine.

Can you return it to San Disk as faulty?

I'd suggest trying a 1Gb card next. Try using one in a shop and make sure it formats/takes photos.

For what it's worth, I can't use my 80x 2Gb in my 1D Mk2 but it works fine in my 20D.
