Customer Question
Camera says "memory card...

Camera says "memory card error." The "format" function is not highlighting in the menu/set-up function list in the view-finder, so I can't select it to begin.

Technician's Assistant: Are there any flashing lights, symbols, or messages on your camera or display screen?

No

Technician's Assistant: Have you tried removing and replacing the battery and/or SD card?

Yew, new batteries,and new card. It's 64 GB. Is this too big form My S2 IS?

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Camera Expert to know before I connect you?

I don't think so
