Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX9 Digital Camera ?

I have put a sim card into my camera that I have used in the past but it says memory card error. I have also tried a brand new card and the message says the same. The only card that does not give the message is one I have in a digital photoframe with photos already on it. Do you know what the problem can be please ?

Trying to upload photos off the sim card on a sony camera. when the computer is posting the thumbnail shots it gets about half of the 600 or so and says "devise can not display thumbnail copies, device is busy?" Not sure how to extract the photos off this card any suggestions?
No but a good idea is to copy the photos to optical disc with a known good PC then reformat the card on your Panasonic Camera, some times SD cards get confused with the formatting.
