I've inserted old card (that used to work) and brand new card and turned on camera. card setup page comes up.i go to format and press ok. it says format, yes/no. click yes. says caution erasing all then new screen appears- saying card error. can't do anything else on camera.
never had a problem with this card before. brought a new card and same thing happens.
Did you happen to write files to one of the cards from the computer, or delete files from the card through the computer before that happened? This problem has been known to happen in such cases. Remember to only *copy* files from the card to the computer using the card reader, and only delete files using the camera. Anyway, try turning off the camera, pulling and re-inserting the card. If it doesn't work - try it a few more times. If it still doesn't work and you've got nothing to lose, try deleting any files you may have written to the card using the computer, and then try again. But the fact that the new card didn't work as well might mean that it won't help. Good luck.

* Depending how you deleted the older files. If you just selected everything and deleted or reformated the card then the camera is looking for a specific formated card or folder to move the files to.
* It's also possible that without finding the correct file folder or format that the camera "Default" to the internal memory. You will need to re-insert the properlly formated (or use the format option on camera menu. I would suggest using another card.).
* Connect the camera to your computer to browse the pictures in the camera's memory. Download or transfer to your hard drive storage.
* Once you have archived all your pictures then insert a new data card and start over again following you camera's set up instructions.
This error message means that the card is corrupted or formatted for another digital camera. Turn off the camera. Insert a new card or format the card.
