Try putting the new memory card into the camera and format the card. If the camera doesn't accept that it has a memory card turn the camera off remove the battery and then after about ten seconds put the battery back in and turn it on and see if you can format the new card again. You should always format the memory cards in the camera, even though there is a delete for single images leave them on the card and format the card. Always format the card in the camera not the computer.
By deleting single images in on the card while in the camera it sets up little partitions and pretty soon the memory card is rendered useless. Formatting in the computer writes a little program to the card which the camera can not read.

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.

All memory cards need to be formatted to the camera they are going to be used in. By doing this cleans the card and makes it ready to work properly in your camera. After using the card and downloading the pictures to the computer the memory card should be formatted again to give a clean card to put more pictures on. The SD cards also have a lock so you need to make sure that this lock is in the unlock position before installing it in the camera. On the upper left corner you will see a small white switch make sure this has been slide forward toward the top edge (towards the gold contacts) Insert it in the camera and close the door see picture.
Using the set up menu page 32 of you manual will show you how to get to the format menu
Page 33 has the format sequence to follow
Hope this was a help Robert in Canada
