Question about Cameras
I have been using the 1 gb sd card and had no problem with taking or playing the pictures back. Then the next day when I went to view or take new pictures it state "memory card error" won't let me go any further. Have I lost all of the pictures or what has caused this message. This was a new card -- first time using it and I had quite a few good pictures.
I have a canon ixus 5mp and I recently had this exact problem in the middle of a wedding. I popped the memory card out of the camera and rubbed the SD Card metal contacts very gently with a clean tissue. I was outside and made sure I was earthed so I had no static which may damage the card - touch some metal pluming to ensure you are earthed.. I then replaced the card and continued to use the camera without a problem.
In your case - if cleaning the contacts does not work - can you read the memory card in a Computer? - if so down load your pictures and for printing etc - and then format the card in the computer. Then put it back in the camera and retry shooting.
If that does not work or it re-occures then the card then it may be faulty. Try to change it anyway for peace of mind if you can.

Try using F-Recovery for SD Cards. It can get past common file corruption errors on SD cards and recover picture data.
It's free to download, install and try. If it finds data, you can then buy the software and let it do the recovery.
