Question about Cameras
Hello and welcome to fixya
Since your camera is more than 6 years old the problem is probably related to SD/SDHC compatibility. You cannot use a card larger than 2GB in your camera.
In 2008 the SDHC format was introduced but even though it fits the SD slot perfectly , the camera's manufactured before 2008 does not have the capability to use the card and reads card error or other messages.
This is 9/10 times the problem you will have. If you have a card smaller than 2Gb with witch you are having the problem , please read the following tip a friend of mine wrote on the subject as it covers all the possible alternative problems you can encounter.
