I have the same camera and bought a 4GB PNY SD card and it wouldn't work, so I read the manual :) The manual says, "SD Memory Cards having the following storage capacity can be used on your camera (Toshiba PDR-3330):
8MB, 16MB, 32MB, 64MB, 128MB, and 256MB"
Hope this helps! -Kim

Your main problem is that you are trying to use a 4GB SDHC card in an approximately 8 year old camera which was only designed to accept a maximum 512MB SD card and which only worked reliably with 256MB SD cards. When your camera was designed, 128MB cards were the largest size available and so hardware testing only went up that far.
SDHC cards use a different memory structure to SD cards and older devices cannot use them even though they will fit in the slot. As it's a hardware limitation there is no firmware update option.
Your only fix is to obtain the correct type and capacity of SD card or to replace your camera with one which accepts SDHC cards.
hope you manage to use this information to fix your problem or at
least that it assists you to choose your next course of action.

The USB cable for cameras is easily availalbe at most computer or camera stores. You can take your camera along just to make sure one end fits properly to your camera.
The USB cable would have mini connector on one side and a standard male connector on the other side. (cost around $7~10)

If you should see the warning message "CARD ERROR" in the LCD Display, please check the following:
Always choose reliable quality SD Cards. Toshiba Digital Cameras are tested for maximum performance with Toshiba SD Cards, Delkin SD Cards and Panasonic SD Cards. These are leading brands in the development of standard SD technology. Performance by other brands of SD cards may vary.
Check the LOCK switch on the SD Card. The camera can not save images to an SD Card when it is in the lock protected position.
If the SD Card is NEW, it may be necessary to FORMAT the card. This only applies to NEW SD Cards. If you format a card with images, all images will be erased. You can FORMAT your card periodically to maximize capacity and erase 'unseen' files, please be sure to download all images before choosing FORMAT as all images will be erased.
Your Toshiba Digital Camera is designed for use with SD Cards. MultiMedia Cards are similar in size and shape to SD Cards, although with close inspection you will find that SD Cards have a different 'PIN" connection configuration, are slightly thicker in size, and have a manual slide LOCK switch on the side. Toshiba Digital Cameras are not designed or guaranteed to accept MultiMedia Cards. Please be sure to look for SD Cards from Toshiba, Panasonic and Delkin, the leaders in SD Card Technology.
