My Sony Cybershot Camera was dropped in water accidentally the other day. I have let it dry out as much as possible for 2 days. When I tried to use it, the camera still takes pics as it did before but it keeps saying "insert memory card" Anything more I can do? Is it worth trying it on with Sony as it's only 4 months old. Only thing is that I know that water damage is not normally covered. If they see water damage, will they bill me for the repair?

Kodak DX7590.. accidentally dropped it in a waterfall.. it was under water for only a few seconds.. I took everything out (battery, memory card, etc etc) and let it dry out before trying again.
