Hey. I bought a new camera some days ago with a new Digix 4gb SDHC memory card. I went to Disney World and took normally a lot of pictures. From one moment to another, the camera gives me the message "Memory card error" and won't let me take nor view pictures. I tried removing the memory card and everything. I checked and It isn't locked or something. Also, I tried using a memory card reader on my laptop, and it says I have to format to read the card. I REALLY don't want to lose the pic
