Canon Powershot S80 can no longer read 2gb SD after using 4gb SD

    In reference to the use of a Canon Powershot S80:

    Has anyone see a problem of not being able to read or write to a
    smaller SD card after using a bigger one? I just bought a 4gb RiData
    SD card and used it for a week while on vacation, photos and movie
    clips were fine, but when I ran out of room I switched over to the
    smaller previous used 2Gb SD (SanDisk) and the camera report "no memory
    card".

    Thanks in advance for any replies,
    Charlie

    That is a weird one Charlie.
    Perhaps it is just coincidence.
    Try another SD card to see if it too, cannot be read.
    Does the 2GB card work in a card reader?

    have you tried to format the card in the camera? Do you have access to
    a PC (if you are still on vacation) that can format the Sandisk card,
    then format it in the camera.

    Good Luck
