I have a Polaroid i532 digital camera. The memory card I had in it was PNY technologies SD card. The card I got is a HP SD card. The camera will turn on without the new card, but when I put the new card back in the lens comes out and red light comes on. That's it. Please help!

Look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.
You may use any SD card up to 2GB in size (4GB if you can find any). Make sure you get an SD card and not an SDHC card, as the latter are electronically incompatible and will not work. The brand and speed won't make much difference, though a faster card may download faster to your computer if you use a compatible card reader. I'd also stick with the major brands, such as SanDisk, PNY, and Lexar.
Things to check first for a camera that won't turn on are battery contact points, and micro switches that are located on the battery and memory card doors. Troubleshooting tips on other things that need to be checked may be seen here. These tips won't work for every case, but they're worth a try.
SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.
The trouble is you've used the internal memory and now your camera is set to use it and not your memory card. You must remove your card, go into the menu and find "format" and follow the on-screen directions to format the internal memory. Then insert your card and promise never to use the internal memory again.
Hello. Look at the edges of the card for a small slide button and make sure the card is unlocked. Then press the menu button and look in the settings or tools for "storage"or "memory".options. What you need to find is "Format". If you do choose to Format memory card. This will permanantly remove ALL the information on the card.
many ideas! But they all lead to the bank! you either repair ( expensive) or throw it in the bin. You could try a claim on your insurance. But it would depend on the excess you might have to pay to justify the value of a repair
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 ( http://picasa.google.com ).
