SD cards can fail. # years on a SD card may be all you'll get. Try another card to see if you can record pictures on it. If so, then the card has gone bad. If not , then the camera needs a repair shop.
There have been two other posts in this camera's forum about this problem, you could've saved yourself a lot of trouble by reading through the other posts. This camera only supports an SD card of 1GB maximum. The specifications on page 25 of the User's Manual state that only SD cards between 8MB and 1GB in size can be used in this camera. When I tried a larger-capacity 2GB SD card in this camera it reported that the card needed to be formatted even though the SD card worked fine in my desktop PC's SD card slot. Verify that the capacity of the SD card you're trying to use is 1GB or less.
I'm guessing you're trying to format a new 4GB SDHC card? If so, am sorry to say that your camera was designed before the SDHC format came out.
Although it looks exactly the same as a standard SD card, the format the card uses is very different.
You'll need to instead purchase a standard SD card (those that are 2GB or less). Forunately these are very inexpensive these days, with 2GB cards going for around $6 with shipping.
You haven't said which card you're trying to use but the symptoms are typical of those encountered if you try either a larger capacity SD card (which go to 4GB maximum) or if you're trying to use a later SDHC (the HC means High Capacity) card. The c310 was designed and manufactured before SDHC cards were manufactured and is incompatible at the basic hardware level. SDHC's will fit inside as they have the same form as SD cards, but your camera is unable to use them.
If you have tried using the wrong card then all you need to do to fix the error is to replace it with a standard SD card not exceeding 2GB. In practice you'll find that your camera may have issues with some brands/models of 2GB SD cards but that it will work fine with any make or model of 1GB SD card. The smaller capacity card will also ensure that your camera does not become awkwardly slow in operation.
Hopefully I've answered your question; all I ask in return is that you return the favour by rating my answer.
