When I put the memory card in the camera it says 'cannot read' it. How do I format the card? I know it has the right 'size' memory. The memory card I am using is the same one I used a few months ago and I saved the pictures I took to a computer and erased the pictures off the card. Now as soon as I turn the camera on it says 'This card cannot be read'. Im frustrated as there is nothing in the manual that seems to get my camera working again. I have only had it for a year. Please HELP!

Card Locked! It is definitely NOT the lock tab. This is my sisters camera. She has used this card for a while. She took it out to try out a card I gave her and when she put the original back in the camera, it says "Card Locked!" whenever anything that would alter its contents is attempted.
