I'm guessing you bought new 4GB SDHC cards. Although it looks exactly the same as a standard SD card, the format the card uses is very different. Unfortunately your camera was designed before the SDHC format came out. Sorry, but a SDHC card will not work with your camera. \015\012
\015\012You'll need to use standard SD cards (usually those 2GB or less). But if you really want to use a 4GB card, do a Google search for 4GB SD "non HC", with the non HC in quotes. Believe Transcend makes one.

I appear to have lost all my holiday photos due to a crash within the camera when the memory was reading full. Although the camera is not recognising any images on the card It still has a message saying memory full. I have tried to copy the images within the camera memory onto the apparently empty memory card but again the message comes up no images to copy. I know the data is there because the camera will only let me take 12 frames before it tells me that its memory is full. How can I recover t

Memory card error is the message that is coming up on the screen, which means I cannot take any pictures, as the internal memory is full with three pictures.
