Just purchased and installed SD memory card and the camera says memory card is unusable (Insert new memory card)

A bunch of stuff could be happening. First did you format the new card if not see if it can be formatted to the camera. if not then you will need to download the newest updates for that camera from the Kodak web site. For example the camera is set )internally) to accept a 1gig card and you installed a 2gig card it won't recognize the card until the camera firmware is updated. The easiest way is to format the card first.

Cannot formate 4GB memory to FAT16 use for mobile phone samsung

If you are trying to format this card through a PC don't bother, it will not work when you install it into the phone.
If you are trying to format this card in the phone, you may find that your phone will not access high capacity type cards as few older phones do, and by older, I mean if the phone is more then 6 months old, the chances are that it will not allow access to the card.
Some phones also have an upper limit to the size of the card they will address and most will not address any card larger then 2gig..
Of course, you may also have a faulty card, even from new, some of the high density cards are faulty..
If you can get access to a smaller card (like say a 1gig), try that in your phone. If it works then you will find that your phone cannot address high density cards.
I have a camera, less then 6 months old, will address normal 2gig cards but it will not allow high density 4 gig cards which is a pain but alas, nothing you can do about it..

Windows says not enough space on pny 8 gig flash drive

Try formatting the drive as NTFS instead of FAT32 (assuming you are using it only on Windows computers). FAT32 doesn't support files over 4GB.

Tmobile wing memory

You might want to try first formatting the 2 gb card through your computer. And then inserting it into your wing. Once inserted into the wing go into file explorer and up top you should be able to choose "my documents" or "Memory Card"
