Have three cards, all give me the trash symbol when I turn on the camera. If I delete from camera I get 'NO CARD ERROR'. Downloaded some files to format the cards with my ZIO usb reader with no luck. Is it the cards or is it the camera? Nice camera when working. Hate to give it up.

what is the model of your camera? basically every camera has picture deletion, find a trash symbol button, other way, u can connect your camera with PC or if you use memory card, put it out and you can delete picture from PC with memory card reader.
Error 20 didn't show up on a 50D error code search, however I've run into this before when the processing operation couldn't be completed meaning the memory card was corrupt.
The Canon 50D makes massively large files and several things can run you into problems the first I doubt but need to list and that is you are using a card with a slow write speed. Another is that you have been using that trash can icon and not formatting your memory card. The trash can deletes files yes but it leaves what I cal a residue (small amount of data) do this enough and your card fills with useless data. Still looking at the memory card, you possibly downloaded pictures to the computer and formatted the card in the computer, not a good thing to do. Error 20 is also a windows error code for corrupt files which will play havoc with your camera firmware.
Another possibility is you downloaded picture files to your computer and forgot to do a safe disconnect, eject or safely remove device what ever your camera computer uses for shut the device off before disconnecting.
After downloading your just placed the memory card back into the camera and maybe started shooting again with a "dirty" card. The correct practice is to format your memory card every time you have had it connected to the computer. Format not delete, format the memory card in the camera it is to be used in.
Clean up the card and your problem will go away. Error 20 is a processing problem, corrupt file(s) or a camera firmware problem. If the problem continues do a firmware update to your camera through the canon site it's free
The only way that your memory card has a virus is that it was downloaded to the memory card from the computer and no the "virus" would have little to no change of affecting the camera programing. Format the card in the camera and that'll clean any nasty corrupt files and give you a clean working medium to work with again. A memory card after downloading pictures to the computer hard drive should be formatted not deleting every picture. Deleting doesn't clean and will over time cause some card errors and fail to download and a bunch of other annoyances. If the card is formatted after each download to the computer then this annoyance will be eliminated.
Please remove the card off from the camera and have it checked into your PC card reader... or into one in your friends laptop. On scanning you can see the files and also if any errors ( virus) has come into the memory card. If so copy off all the files and format the card.
However if the card is not read then it can be faulty, good to approach the computer service to try for recovery of the important data that is inside without trying any harsh moves.
Problems typically are pretty rare with Panasonic Lumix digital cameras. On those occasions where you do have an issue, though, look for an error message on the Panasonic camera for some clues as to how to fix the problem.
he seven tips listed here should help you troubleshoot your Panasonic camera error messages.
Built-in Memory Error error message. If you see this error message with your Panasonic camera, the internal memory area of the camera is either full or corrupted. Try downloading photos from the internal memory. If the error message continues to appear, you may need to format the internal memory area.
Memory Card Locked / Memory Card error message. Both of these error messages are related to the memory card, rather than the Panasonic camera. If you have an SD memory card, check the write protect switch on the side of the card. Slide the switch up to unlock the card. If the error message persists, it's possible the memory card is corrupted and needs to be formatted. It's also possible the memory card was formatted using another device that is not compatible with Panasonic's file structure system. Format the card with your Panasonic camera to fix the problem ... but keep in mind that formatting the card will erase any photos stored on it.
No Additional Selections Can Be Made error message. If your Panasonic camera allows you to "save" photos as your "favorites," you may find this error message because the camera has a limited number of photos that can be labeled as favorites, usually 999 photos. You cannot mark another photo as a favorite until you remove the favorite label from one or more photos. This error message also may occur if you're trying to delete more than 999 photos at one time.
No Valid Picture error message. This error message typically refers to a problem with the memory card. Most of the time, you'll find this error message when you try to play back images from the memory card and the memory card is corrupted, empty, broken, or has been formatted with another camera. To fix the memory card, you must format it, but formatting a memory card causes all photos stored on it to be lost. Try inserting the memory card in another device or in your computer and try downloading any photos stored on it before formatting it with your Panasonic camera.
Please Turn Camera Off And Then On Again error message. At least this error message says "please." This error message most likely occurs when one of the parts of the camera's hardware is malfunctioning, usually a jammed lens housing. To try to fix this problem, start by turning the camera off for a few seconds before turning it back on. If this doesn't fix the problem, try resetting the camera by removing the battery and memory card from the camera for at least 10 minutes. Replace both items and then try turning the camera on again. If the lens housing is jamming as the lens moves through its zoom range, try gently cleaning the housing, removing any debris or grime. If all of these steps don't fix the problem, you'll probably need a repair center for the camera.
This Battery Cannot Be Used error message. With this error message, you've either inserted a battery that's incompatible with your Panasonic camera or you've inserted a battery that has dirty contacts. Gently clean the metal contacts with a dry cloth. In addition, make sure the battery housing is free of debris. You sometimes may see this error message if you're using a battery that's not manufactured by Panasonic. If the third-party battery is working OK to power the camera, you probably can ignore this error message.
This Picture Is Protected error message. You'll see this Panasonic camera error message when the photo you've selected has been protected from deletion. Try working through the camera's menus to figure out how to remove any protection labels for the photo files.
Keep in mind that different models of Lumix cameras may provide a different set of error messages than is shown here. If you are seeing Panasonic camera error messages that aren't listed here, check with the user guide for your model of Panasonic Lumix camera for a list of other error messages, or visit the Support area of the Panasonic Web site.
Either it's a real error w/ the card or there are files on the card that the camera can't understand. try re-formating the card (check your owners man.) or put the card into a card reader, plug it into your computer, trash all files off of the card, EMPTY THE TRASH CAN & eject the card normally. If that doesn't work buy a new card.
If your SD memory card contains more than 1,000 images, the camera will display "Communication Error". Use a card reader (if available) to import your images into the computer, or see about having some CD's made at a photofinishing business.
My experience in this issue is that you should never put too much trust in an SD card :-/ It seems to me that all cards are prone to fail once in a while, and my best advice is to keep spare ones handy. A dedicated SD card reader is a good thing, too...
