Default Canon PowerShot SD940 Lag

Last year I bought a Canon PowerShot SD940 and was very happy with it. I purchased an 8GB SanDisk Memory Card for the camera, and shutter lag was pretty decent. However lately the lag is almost 6 seconds! I reformatted the Memory Card, and that didn't make any difference.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what else I can try? Thanks!

Try another memory card to see IF it IS the Card or the Camera!
Most likely the Card, But, maybe the camera...try and let us know the results.
Also, check what your settings are...have you changed any of them, or should say, have you changed any That You Know Of...Did so of a couple on one of my cameras without knowing and talk about lag...could nap between shots. Went back and reset everything to normal and was fine.

When I reformatted the MC, I also set the camera to the default settings to see if that would help, but it didn't.

I thought of trying another Memory Card, but I gave the one that came with the camera away so I don't have another one to try right now. I'm going to try to borrow another MC from a friend and see if that's causing the problem.

Thanks for the suggestions!
