Hi, It might be time for a new memory card. A last effort you can try is to remove the memory card and insert it into a memory card reader connected to a PC. There are diagnostics and utilities that can be performed on your memory card since it will be treated by your PC as a removable storage. You can format the memory card, run diagnostics like Norton Disc Doctor or similar. If in any test an error shows, then you have just confirmed that is due for replacement. If after formating, scanning and checking it shows good, then you can try using it again. You can also try cleaning the little gold tips at the end of one side of the memory. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

    Hi again,

    Based on the updated information you provided, we can rule out the memory card. It is then possible that the contacts where the memory card mates to are partially corroded or not completely touching the pins of the card. This is rather a tricky repair since this involves cleaning the contact pins of the camera which is in a very tight enclosure. You might need a very thin tweezer or something to reach the said contacts. Cotton or cotton ear buds should work if you can make it reach and fit in such a confined space.

    If this does not solve the problem, then perhaps it has something to do with the firmware of the camera which may be flashed by the authorized camera manufacturer's service centers.

    If things prove to be to beyond economical or practical reason, perhaps your best bet is to replace the camera itself.
