The 02 error definitely refers to a CF card problem. If none of these cards are new and have been used in other cameras, this could be the problem. Try a new one.

Problem with the pictures taken

Are you trying to read the card with the camera connected to the computer using a USB cable? If so, try using a separate card reader.

Camera screen says card protected... wont let me take pictures.

Check your memory card to ensure that there is no read-only switch on the edge of the card, and that it is not turned to read-only. That would stop the card from accepting further data being written to the card.

I have a sony camcorder I just acquired, 300 K pixel. To describe it, it has a detachable battery on the left side that contain 2 AA batteries. It require no film can not get it to work . I have a manuel...

Your description should be clearer in order to get the actual problem.
But, I will try to see what I can do.
Depending on the kind of camera you have, it should take video tape, either digital or analog in various sizes such as 8mm video cassette. Some may take a different kind such as VHS-C. The manual should describe what kind you need.
Some kinds of smaller, and newer video cameras may take a memory card of some kind. In that case, you would need no video tape, just a memory card of the kind recommended.
Some of the very cheap small video cameras may use only internal memory and no external whatsoever. In that case, you need nothing except to take videos. However, be advised that usually short, low quality movies can be recorded and must be moved from the camera to the computer, in order to take more videos. Some of these also take snapshots as well.

Memory card error in 8GB card

Try to re-insert the card. If that doesn't help try to reformat it/delete all its contents. Also check in the manual what kinds of cards does the camera generally work with (although i doubt that is the problem).

Camera wont read memory card camera says memory card error and i have tried many other chips and it does not also says that the memory card is locked.

What kind of memory card is it? Look on the side and make sure the small tab is not in the "lock" position. This may solve your problem.
