I cleared my picts off card via usb, wnet to use camera & read "memory card error". So, I tried to re-format, & camera ties to format but message comes back "card not formatted". I then went & bought a new sd card & the camera is still coming up with same messages. What's the problem? I also had some fogging of the lens this past winter, while taking outdoor picts (20 degrees temp), could that be contributing to this problem??

You need to format the card in the camera. Go into the menu and scroll to "format" and follow the on-screen instructions. This will erase and initialize the card . To download pictures, the most trouble-free way is to use a card reader and download to a folder you create on your desktop.
Try doing this in pc attached card reader. If you have a card reader or someone you know has one you can read, format or even check for errors. The computer you are using will just look at it as if it's a hard drive. These are very handy for a couple of things. You can down load your pictures and not tie up your camera and in your case, it gives you a alternate way to double check your memory. Thing can go wrong with memory so it is not impossible that it is broken, better that than your camera.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.
pls format the card in Camera thru menu options u will see FORMAT option use it and then check otherwise , first format it on PC and choose FAT16 to format the card and then format one more time on the camera it will work definately
