The camera is actually saying that the internal memory of the camera (which is very small) is full, not your card. Here's what to do....with no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"(may be called "initialize") and follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Once that's done, your card should work properly.
Apparently, you used the internal memory before putting in the memory card. Now the camera only wants to use the internal memory. Here's the fix...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 the memory card. If this is a new card, you will need to format it in the camera, too. If there are any pics on it, download them first using a card reader if necessary, because the card will be completely erased.
First thing; check owner's manual and USA distributor, make absolutely sure that this camera is able to read/write to a 8GB card! If so, put that card into your computer, directly into appropriate slot or through a "reader" and the USB port. If computer runs Windows, access My Computer, click on external memory device, and RIGHT CLICK. You will get a box which offers to format the card. You can rename the card at the same time. The computer's format routine is stronger that the one in the camera. If problem still happens, consult distributor. May be fixable with a cable from camera to USB port, you download new software from distributor. Follow their instructions EXACTLY.
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.
