This is a common problem and I had the same issue. Samsung only guarantees that a 1GB external memory card will work. If you look at the user manual on page 77. I just used a 1GB memory card instead and it worked fine. I am not saying that no memory cards greater than 1GB will work but I would try to find someone that has used the brand and size and knows that it will work.

The Samsung NV3 can only use standard SD memory cards up to 2GB. I'm guessing that your new card is a 4GB SDHC card, which the camera is not capable of recognizing. Fortunately, 2GB SD cards are relatively inexpensive these days, and are widely available on Amazon (see this link) if your local store no longer carries them.
Hi, Make sure that the camera is set to record to the memory card... often the internal memory will only handle a couple of pictures... If it still shows memory full then a ribbon cable has come loose inside the camers and it is not recognizing the memory or cards...
It may be telling you that the internal memory is full. You must get rid of anything in there. With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Then, insert your new card and do the "format" thing again.
I've tried to download a manual for this camera to give you the most accurate answer possible, however after a few minutes of frustration I'm going to answer this sort of "off the top of my head so to speak" My first impression is that the 4GB memory card my be beyond your cameras capabilities but first try this. Have you checked the memory card to make sure it's not locked I'll include a diagram check the small circle for the correct orientation the arrow shows the lock position. Diagram
Once you have made sure the card is unlocked install the memory card and then format the card. Formatting "programs and new card to work with the camera it has been installed into. Also Formatting should be done after each download of pictures to the computer hard drive. In this case formatting cleanse the old pictures off and programs the card once again to give optimum performance between the camera and memory card. If this still doesn't work then I suspect the 4GB card is to large for the camera "firmware and you will need to update your camera on the Samsung web site to a newer version of firmware. Sounds complicated but heck i did it so it's not all that technical. Also the memory card you are replacing may only need to be formatted to begin to work properly again (that's if you were having problems)
You need to eliminate the pics from the internal memory. With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Then, insert your card and do the "format" thing again for the card. Everything should be normal now.
