Optio wg 1

Hi all,

I bought my daugther an Optio WG-1 camera for her birthday. Once in a while the camera hangs after taking a pictue, and the only way to fix it is to remove the battery and re-insert it. This loses the picture taken. I have tried different memory cards, same problem.

Does anyone have an idea why this happens.

Perhaps the card isn't secured while it's in the camera? That would be my guess. Either that, or something wrong with the camera. Unfortunately, I don't think there are any firmware updates for it.
