Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Answers :

You didn't mention the make or model of your digital camera; but I don't think any digital camera requires any type of software installed on the memory card.
\015\012With that being said, and if I am correct, then you should be able to take the SD card (or what ever type of memory card your camera uses), and plug it into your computer; providing your computer has a card reader.
\015\012See if your computer can read your memory card; if so try and cut and paste a simple file onto the card and see if you can save a file onto your memory card. If your computer can read and write files onto your memory card, then a good chance your memory card is good, and there might be something wrong with the camera.
\015\012If you can not read the memory card with your computer, then try formating the card (make sure you format it with FAT32). Now try and read and write to your memory card with your computer, if this still fails; then there is a good chance your memory card is no good.
\015\012If after formating your card, and the card passes the read and write test, try putting the card back into your camera and see if it works; There might be a chance that the person that serviced your camera "6 times" formated your card incorrectly.
\015\012Good luck
