Okay so i have the PNY optima SDhc 4gb memory card and an exilim camera. theyre both new. i got the memory card and put it in the camera, formatted it and it worked. so i took about 40 pictures and they all showed up fine. then i put the memory card into my hp1300 printer and it says "error found on card" so then i got the usb cord for my camera and hook it up through there and all of the pictures show up just fine.
this was the first time.
so we thought the card was just having problems, so we took it back and exchanged it for a new one. but before i got to put it in, i dropped my camera and the lense broke. so we took it back and got a whole new, but same, camera. so its the same exact camera and the same exact card and theyre both new. so then i formatted the card, and took about 10 pictures, i tried to hook it up to the printer again and its doing it all over again. the pictures will show up on my camera but they wont show up on my printer. please help!

First, check try the card in another device, does it work, if no, the card has possibly failed, if yes check your user guide, make sure this camera can accommodate a 4gb SDHC card, if yes, check 2/3s up the left hand side of the card, is there a sliding notch offering a choice of lock and open, unlock the card.
Sounds like you may not have a SD memory card in your camera (or have been using a 4GB SDHC card), and your images are being saved to the camera's very limited "built-in" memory. What size SD memory card are you using. If there is none (or if you're using a 4GB SDHC), recommend purchasing a standard SD card no larger than 2GB files size for your model camera (think of it as the camera's reusable film).
Note that 4GB and higher SDHC cards will not work with your camera as it was manufactured before SDHC format came out (this also could be causing the camera to default to built-in memory). Again, the maximum SD card size that your camera can use is 2GB. These can still be purchased, and are relatively inexpensive on Amazon.
The problem is that your camera will only read SD cards, not SDHC cards, I checked its specification. You found your 256Mb card too small and bought a replacement, not noticing that it was SDHC. The new card doesn't work, not because it or the camera is broken, but because it's not compatible.
Cards up to 2Gb are generally SD. Cards over 8Gb have to be SDHC. 4Gb cards can be either SD or SDHC, but are almost always SDHC because they're cheaper. I'm willing to bet that the 4Gb card you got is actually SDHC because 4Gb SD cards are so rare that I've even seen a guru on this site claim they don't exist. I did own one once, but it was very expensive and turned out to be so unreliable that I had to return it.
Your solution is to go find a 2Gb card, and be extra sure that it doesn't say "SDHC" on it. (If it does, it probably means that they made a 4Gb card, but there were some error locations and so they disabled half of it and packaged it as a cheap-brand 2Gb.)
The manual does not specify a maximum size but says it does support an SDHC card. The smallest SDHC card is 4GB which is enough for 29 minutes of video recording. Therefore 8GB would seem adequate, although there seems no reason why 16GB should not be supported.
There are no 4GB SD cards. Any card that size is actually a SDHC (High Capacity) card. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but many cameras won't work with the SDHC cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.
It seems that you are using an SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) card. It's incompatible with certain older models of cameras. I think the most you can put in your camera is 2GB. I've done some research and it doesn't say anything about your camera being SDHC compatible. Return the card, get a 2GB.
