Sorry to tell you, but your older camera will not work with 4GB or higher SDHC cards. Your camera was designed before SDHC format came out. You'll need to use 2GB or less standard SD cards. These are relatively inexpensive these days, and are easily found on Amazon, just in case your local store no longer carries them. For others reading, there are several other possible causes for memory card problems, with troubleshooting steps that may be viewed here.
Your memory card needs a permanent home. Trading it between cameras is corrupting it. If there are pics on it, use a card reader to download them. Then choose a camera and format the card in that camera.
Hi, the data on the card is corrupted and as a result is not reading it, you will need to format the memory card, if you cannot format it through the camera i suggest formatting it through the computer.
Pictures can sometimes be recovered by sending the card to a service provider, or by downloading software designed to recover the pictures from the card.
It is not clear weather the problem is the card or the camera, however to recover the pictures from the card would be the same process. If you do not have one you will need to buy a USB card reader to load the card on the computer.
Consider buying another card to test in the camera, if you so wish. If the camera is new enough also consider contacting the manufacturer for warranty assistance.
