Re: card format problems
The first thing you will have to check the card. There is slot on the
card that contains a switch. This will lock the card so that it is
write-protected. This will cause the unsupported card error.
If the card looks fine, try a card reader just to confirm that the card has not been corrupted.
the card is functional and you can read its contents from the PC or
another SD-slot device, then the issue is your camera. The slot
contains thin copper prongs that comes in contact the copper surface on
the back of the SD card. If the prongs are bent or damage, then the
camera cannot read your card.

OK, firstly let me state what exactly the error message you are receiving concludes to: "The "DCF full error" occurs when you use memory card in your camera
which is formatted in another camera. The error is the result of
improper formatting of the memory card which leads to incompatibility of
the card with the Samsung camera."
Now, i the resolution for this specific problem is to format the memory card in the Samsung camera.
I know you stated that you have already formatted the card, but you did not state if you formatted the card in your camera, or on your computer.
Try the above solution and let me know if the problem still persists.
Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any further questions.
Not a solution, but after corresponding with HP customer service, they concluded that the problem with my M527 (see above) cannot be fixed. They offered to replace it with the same two-year old model for $99.99 which is much more than that model camera would be worth. I declined their offer.
memory card? and SD card? whatever the card hook your camera to a usb to computer and find it under "my computer"
look at all your drives you should have like c, d , e, f, g, h, select the last drive and see if it finds your card if so try formatting it through the computer, whatever you do dont select c or d to format. if problem persists buy a new SD. I find good deals on ebay or Walmart.
You mentioned in your post "the above camera", but I can't find the make/model of your camera? Check on the manufacturer's
website to see what the largest capacity card can be used in your camera. Knowing the make/model and searching for the message on the internet can yield better answers to your question.

Try plugging the camera into your computer. Under my computer the camera should pop up as a new drive. Right click and choose format. If you have a card reader built into your computer you can simply plug the card into that and do the same thing.
Either way you do it, that may help. Your card has been corrupted and the camera can not fix it. Windows may be able to fix it instead, it may not though. In the end you may have to purchase a whole new memory card for the camera.
They can become corrupted and sometimes they get corrupted in a way that the device itself can't fix. I had a Multimedia Card get corrupted in my cell phone and the phone couldn't format it, nor could windows. Luckily there was a program for another type of cell phone that worked on mine that fixed it by doing a low level format of the card.
This option isn't available to you on a camera, so you're somewhat limited in the ways you can repair the memory card.
