Brenda, Although I only have a little to go on, I'll give it a try.

Olympus camera's do have an internal memory, but just for a limited amount of pictures. When your camera says Memory full, this internal memory is full. You can place a memory card, or free memory, by deleting pictures. But don't delete a picture before you are sure you saved the picture on the computer or some other media.
If you want a memory card, check what type of card goes into your camera. When you place a memory card in the camera it has to be formatted (check the manual) but NEVER format a memory card, when you have any pictures in the internal memory, because you could loose all the pictures in the internal memory too.
Check that your digital camera is not in playback or review mode. Make sure the memory card is in the camera and that the card is properly formatted. The Memory Card may be full. Download the images to the computer or delete some to make way for new photos. Check the charge on the batteries. Replace if necessary. Have you been using the flash? It may be recharging. When it is recharged, the camera will be ready to take photos again.
You usually have to take out the SD card, close the door and then delete images in camera in the normal way (press delete button in play mode, when confirmation dialogue appears, press delete button again, select >delete all< and press OK). Most cameras default to the memory card when one is inserted, that's why you have to take it out to delete data from the internal memory. Hope that helps
Formatting in the camera should have worked. Make sure the slide switch on the side of the card is in the unlocked position. With most cameras, when you bring up a picture and press the delete button, it gives you the option to delete that one picture or all of them. Have you tried that?
