The manual for the camera states that the memory card must be formatted in the camera and that cards formatted in a computer may not work properly. Use the format command in the camera.

SOURCE: What is the largest size
The DMC-FZ7 is designed to work with SD cards up to a maximum 2GB capacity (4GB in theory, but very few devices work reliably with the 4GB SD as they simply didn't exist at the time so could not be compatibility tested with most SD devices). You have tried an 8GB SDHC card which the camera is incompatible with.
The SDHC card is the same size and shape as SD but is significantly different "under the hood". SDHC compliant devices can use earlier SD cards, but devices which are not designed to use SDHC cards cannot be updated: the incompatibility lies at the basic hardware level so there is no firmware update to overcome this.
So your guess is correct, but I hope that my reply helps you to understand why. Your fix is therefore to stick with SD cards of a maximum 2GB capacity. As SDHC cards start at a minimum 4GB capacity, you have no risk of buying the wrong model.

SOURCE: When I turn my camera
A card that size is actually an SDHC card. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but they are slightly different. Many cameras won't work with the SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.
I expect your camera just won't work with this kind of card. It is often difficult to find out the maximum capacity memory card a camera will use, as today's cards are much larger that those available when the manual for the camera was written.

SOURCE: Is there a maximum SD
I think you mean 16 and 24 GB (Gigabyte), not MB, but those would not be SD cards. A card that size is actually an SDHC card. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but they are slightly different. Many cameras won't work with the SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.
If you really mean 16MB, then that would be rather small, not too big. 16MB is definitely compatible with the camera and is mentioned in the manual.
The maximum memory card size mentioned in the manual is 1GB, and that is quite big enough. If you really need more space, then just carry a spare, like people used to take extra film with them on holiday.
