If you are having an SD card error make sure that the little slide switch on the card is set as not to protect the card that will give the error sometimes.

Perform the following procedures when your digital camera does not detect the SD card.
1. Restart the camera
Turn the main power OFF, or open the battery cover or SD card/battery cover to remove the battery. Make sure the SD card is fully installed. Then, turn the main power ON, or insert a battery again and close the battery cover or SD card/battery cover until it latches.
2. Initialize the SD card
Format the SD card with your camera.
Formatting procedures varies depending on the camera model. See the Camera User Guide supplied with your camera for the instruction to format the SD card.
When formatting the SD card, slide its tab upward to cancel write protection.

3. Check if your camera detects other SD cards (If you own multiple SD cards.)
If your camera does not detect the SD card after performing the procedures 1 and 2, check if the camera detects other SD cards.
If it does detect other SD cards, the SD card that wasn't detected may contain some problem.
