Canon SD400 "E16" Error

I just bought a brand new Canon SD400 and a SanDisk Ultra II 1.0 gig Secure Digital memory card.

When I use the fast frame rate (60 frames/sec), I often get an "E16" error and then my camera switches off.

Can somebody help me out with this? I have searched all over the net for a solution to this, but there isn't much out there regarding this error.

I have no solution, but I can at least tell you that you are not the only one who has experienced this phenomenon. I have an SD400, also with a 1.0GB Ultra II SD card, and if I try to do a fast frame rate video I get the E16 error better than half the time.

Everything else works perfectly as far as I can tell. No big loss for me on the fast frame rate, it's not something I expect to use very often, if ever. I just stumbled upon the bug when I was checking out all the features.
