I have a new Canon A3300 IS and a new SanDisk SDHC 4 GB memory card. It's worked fine for a few days, and now suddenly, I get a "Memory card error" message, and the camera won't work. I tried reformatting the memory card, but the camera refuses to do it. What happened? I assume I need a new memory card, but I'm afraid that the problem will occur again.

I can't transfer my pics from lumix lx3 to pc. When I first connect camera to pc via usb cable, a new drive pops up and I can initially see my pics.

The camera and sandisk sdhc 4gb are brand new. I'd rather not need depend on a card reader. Any help?
