My camera does display the pictures from my memory card but it won't take new pictures. When I take a picture you can not see anything on the display and it doesn't take the picture. It makes a funny shutter sound when I click the button but doesn't actually take the picture.

Re: Camera does not display the pictures
Have you checked to see if there are picture files when you click the shutter. If so, do the resulting picture files show black images? If so, this would be a defective CCD imager. Canon would also fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:

The camera takes SD cards up to 2GB (not SDHC cards). If you've been taking pictures using the camera's internal memory, you must first get rid of those pics. With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" and follow the on-screen instructions. Then, insert your new card and go through the "format" routine again to prepare the new card.
You can connect the camera to the computer with the USB port. If there's no memory card in the camera, the computer should see the pictures in the internal memory.
Alternatively, you can get a new memory card (you're going to need one, right?) and copy the pictures from the internal memory to the card, then put the card into a card reader and transfer the pictures taht way.
If the card was one that was previously used in another camera, you can't use it in this camera without formatting it. Move the pictures to a computer and format the card via the camera (remember that all data on the card will be erased). Before formatting the card however, make sure the battery has sufficient charge as this process can take some time. Also remember to never interrupt this process as it can damage the card. The format option can be found in the settings.
Note: pictures taken on one camera can't be viewed on another camera.
To upload your photos from your camera Olympus SP600UZ Digital Camera to PC
1.First connect your digital camera to your computer. You can do this in two different ways:
Use a USB cable:Most digital cameras come with a cable that connects the camera to a USB (Universal Serial Bus) port on your computer. Through memory card:A memory card reader is a piece of hardware
that plugs right into your computer. You remove the memory card from
your camera and insert it into your memory card reader, similar to the
way you might transfer a file between two computers using a floppy disk.
Now connect USB cabe or Memory card Reader to the port of the computer
2.Once you've connected your camera to your computer or inserted your
memory card into your memory card reader, your computer will detect the
connection and ask you what you want to do with your pictures. If you
connected your camera with a USB cable, click Microsoft Scanner and Camera Wizard, and then click OK

3.When the Scanner and Camera Wizard appears, click Next.
4.All of the pictures on your camera (or in your camera's memory card)
are now displayed on the Choose Pictures to Copy page. By default,
Windows XP selects all of the pictures for downloading. If there are
pictures you do not want to download, just clear the check box next to
those pictures. At this stage, you can also rotate pictures that you
took while holding your camera vertically. To rotate a picture, click
it, and then click either the Rotate clockwise or Rotate counterclockwise button
on the lower-left side of the page. When you have reviewed the pictures
for downloading and rotated your vertical pictures, click Next.
the Picture Name and Destination page, type a name for the group of
pictures. (This name, plus a number to differentiate each picture, will
be applied to each of the pictures you download; for example, if you
name the group "Vacation," the pictures will be named "Vacation001,"
"Vacation002," and so on.) Click Browse, and select a folder in which to save your pictures.

Web site or order prints. If you have finished working with your
pictures, click Nothing, and then click Next.
8.On the final page of the wizard, click Finish. Windows XP opens
a Windows Explorer window showing the pictures you downloaded from your
camera. Your camera's memory card is now clean and ready to store new
pictures. If you connected your camera to your computer using a USB
cable, disconnect your camera. If you used a memory card reader, return
the memory card to the camera.
Your photos are now stored on your PC, ready for whatever you want
to do with them, and your camera is ready to take more pictures.

If you are using the camera to download pictures to the computer you should be able to set around this problem by purchasing a card reader. These plug into the USB port and the camera SD card plugs into the reader, the computer then loos at the SD card as an external Hard Drive. Create a new folder in ? "My Documents" transfer the files from the camera memory card (copy past) into the new folder and you have your pictures not on the computer hard drive.
Do a "safely remove" "eject" or what ever language you computer uses to shut off the connection and disconnect the memory card from the reader.
Format the memory card in the camera always format the memory card after downloading pictures to the computer and always make sure it has completed the download and you have turned off the feed.
Failing this your do two things corrupt the card and possibly the camera software.
Okay another thing that the SD card have is a lock I'm giving you a diagram to see and make sure the card is in the write position.
Scrap the camera! Kodak hasn't and won't address the problem. Most picture download software won't recognize the camera. The only solution is to remove the memory card from the camera, put it in USB adapter and treat it like a flash drive. Cumbersome. Awkward. Stupid. After you scrap the ****, tell your friends so they don't make the mistake of buying a Kodak.
You can add memory to your camera by purchasing an xd memory card.

There are two ways to record the pictures you take with this camera.
Recording pictures to the internal memory
• Pictures are recorded to the internal memory, and when the number of storable still
pictures reaches 0, you must connect the camera to a computer to download the
pictures, and then erase the pictures from the internal memory.
Using an xD-Picture Card (optional)
• Pictures are recorded to the card when inserted in the camera. When the card is
full, you download the pictures to a computer, and then either erase the pictures
from the card or use a new card.
• Pictures are not recorded to the internal memory when a card is inserted in the
camera. Pictures in the internal memory can be copied to the card using the
