    Same problem. I would take the card out and then replace it. Sometimes it would be ok other times not. When it did work, it would only work for a picture or 2 then give the "No Card" message again. Would play the take the card out and reinstall game and get another few pictures, then the problem cycle starts over. Now something new is happening. It must recognize the card because it now gives me the "Card Error" message and NOTHING that I try will clear this message. BTW . . The card is recognized, and is accessed for the pictures that are on it, when I take it out of the camera and use it in my computer. GO FIGURE ? ? ?

    P.S. I even tried to clean the contacts in the camera and on the card but still no luck.

    "No Card" and "Card Error" messages. I padded the door that closes over the card with tape about 1/16th of an inch thick and that worked for a short time. That little bit of padding pushes the card in just a tad further and holds in it better. Now that doesn't work either.

I used to put a piece of plastic under the battery compartment cover to push SD card further, then I used to stick 2-3 layers of insulation tape on the card to make it stuck deeper inside. It helped for some time. Finally I disassembled the camera and slightly bended spring contacts responsible for recognition of the card. The problem disappeared forever.
P.S. When I spoke to local service shop the guy suggested replacement of PCB, it costed more than I payed for the camera. I purchased the camera on E-Bay for $80.

I havd the same problem. The contacts arent pushing the card in far enough to be recognized. Ive been stuffing a small piece of folded paper in there to push it down. Its annoying, but solves the problem.

Gateway digital camera DC-T50 5.25 megapixels put new memory card and a card error message appears

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.

Hi, The DC-T50 only takes regular SD cards up to 512 MB in space. Most cards that are sold now are SDHC, which are NOT compatible. If you can find a 512MB SD card, it should be extremely cheap.
Happy Shooting!
