Hi,

I'm sorry about the issue. Do you mean the camera was working perfectly with a memory card previously? If so, do you still have that memory card to test?

What is the size of the old memory card, such as 512MB, 1GB, 2GB, 4GB, 8GB, 16GB, etc.?

Please reply at the box below. Thank you,

Please stay with me on this web page.

- I have checked the specifications for your Canon camera model PowerShot S2 IS. Like older camera models, your Canon PowerShot S2 IS camera does not support SDHC nor SDXC memory card type, which has size of 4GB or higher. Your camera only support SD memory card type, which has size of 2GB or less.

- Can you please get an an SD memory card and check? I recommend to get a 2GB SD memory card.

Also, if your local computer / electronics / office store does not have a 2GB or 1GB SD memory card, then you can purchase it online at the Amazon website below:
