When the dial is placed on the box with arrow point. I turn the power on and press the menu button and if it does come up, then I arrow down to protect and it will give no choices. It just says protected. Then if you dial to P the LCD screen will show "no card" when the card is properly istalled and the manual lock is not engaged. There has been pictures taken with this card in, but it might jump and show protected card. Is there any hope or answer?

The camera uses SD cards. I assume your new card is 8GB, not 8MB as you stated. If this is the case, it's an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work in the SD-only camera. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller. You may download a copy of the manual here.
Firmware update it http://www.rekam.ru/drivers/dcj01x.bin
copy the bin to a freshly formated by the camera SD card... turn off the camera... Press and hold the up arrow keep it pressed for all 3 100%'s turn the camera on it will take about 2 min i think..
Your camera is NEW again with like 10 fixes by the old firmware.
