Answers :

This can also happen when the lens have an aperture adjustment ring, and it is not set to the "Auto" setting ("A", on my Sigma)/
"f--" is usually happening when you put on a lens that does not communicate with the camera body (like an old manual lens). this has nothing to do with memory card, and the sandisk 4gb you bought is perfect for k200d.
look either what lens you attached and whether the contacts between camera body and lens are clean.
