I recently bought a SanDisk 4GB SDHC card for my DXG-572V. I put it in the camera, and I turned the power on. A screen comes up saying "Format Card?". I have tried selecting both "Yes" and "No", but each time I select either one, the camera powers off automatically. I just installed brand new batteries, also. How can I get past this screen?
