g12 powershot not taking any more photos

I can no longer shoot any photos.  It appeared my memory card was full.  I tried deleting some but all I get is a clicking noise. I can view the photos I have already taken.  Any suggestions?

Have you tried a different memory card?

Hello Er,

You would want to try a different memory card inside the camera to see if this makes a difference.  You should also try resetting the camera by removing both the battery and memory card and wait about twenty minutes.  If inserting them back into the camera does not seem to make a difference then you may need to send this into the Canon Service Center for evaluation.

Hi er,


Have you tried going under the tools menu in the camera and setting the numbering to Auto Reset? If you bumped up against the maximum count, this should reset the camera's numbering and hopefully allow you to take more photos. I had this same problem with Fuji cameras, and this was the resolution.
