    The only thing I can think of that you could correct might be a defective
    memory card. Do you have a second one to try?

    Your *ist DS should have come with a pair of CR-V3 batteries. These are
    NOT rechargeable, but should have lasted for quite a while. If you have
    changed to some other kind of battery, that might be part of your problem.

    Try the CR-V3 batteries and see if you still have the problem. If you do,
    and you know your memory card is good, you should take the camera back to
    the store for a replacement.
