Thanks for prompt response.Does this mean that despite the SD Memory Card fitting perfectly,all SD Cards are not comaptible? Could there be a problem with the printer itself,which does however print emails etc perfectly??

From your description, you seem to have bought a regular SDHC (secure digital high-capacity) card. A Sansa Fuze can only accept micro SD or micro SDHC cards. For buying a new card, I would suggest this card from newegg.com. As for other things you mentioned: No, the card you bought is not meant for cameras only, the only reason your device uses micro SD/SDHC cards is because it is a smaller device. The 4 on your card signifies that it is class 4 which is the card's speed classification.
It means the card has not been formatted, or that the camera doesn't recognise the format, but that might not be the full story. You don't say whether this is a new card or one you used before. I'm going to assume this is a new card (otherwise, it means the card has become corrupted or there is a camera fault).
The first thing to try is formatting the card. There is a function in the camera menus to do this. If it won't format or gives an error when you try, then the card may be incompatible. Formatting deletes anything already on the card.
Maybe it is having trouble with the size of the memory. Memory cards have grown enormously in capacity in the last couple of years, and even relatively new cameras may not be able to cope with the memory size of the newest cards.
If it is a new SD card, then maybe it is actually an SDHC card. "SD" cards larger than about 1GB are usually SDHC cards. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but they are slightly different electrically. Many cameras won't work with SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible
This camera should be able to use any SD card of 1GB or less capacity. If you have been trying to use larger capacity cards, that will be your problem (larger cards are actually SDHC, which fit the same slot but are different electrically). If the cards you have been trying are smaller than that, then there is most likely a fault.
These cameras come with a memory card that will work with them (it is very small capacity). If you have tried to use that one and it won't work, then return the camera under warranty.
It usually means that you are using an SDHC card in a camera that only understands SD cards. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but they are slightly different. Many cameras won't work with the SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.
If that isn't the problem, it may mean that your card needs formatting or has become corrupted, which will be fixed by formatting it. Formatting deletes everything on the card.
If that isn't the problem, then there may be a fault with the card or camera.
The A540 is designed to work with SD cards. Your 8GB card (I assume you really mean gig, not meg) is actually an SDHC card (SDHC stands for Secure Digital High Capacity). While SDHC cards will fit into SD slots, they will not work in SD devices. You need to keep using SD cards, 2GB and smaller.
The original R4 card only works with Micro-SD cards up to 2GB in size. To use Micro-SD cards up to 32GB, you need to buy the newer R4 SDHC card or a Nintendo DSi comaptible card. Check out R4 Cards / R4 DS Cards from DSCardWorld.com or NDS-Gear.com (NDS-Gear is probably better if you live in Europe or Canada as their shipping's slightly better internationally).
From what read of the specs, the C6100 does not support SDHC cards, only SD cards. SD cards top out at 2GB; what you have is technically an SDHC (High Capacity) card, which does not work in SD devices.
