Hello, I have a Nikon Coolpix S6000. It has worked well until this evening when I attempted to erase multiple selected images from the camera.

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.

Canon SD750 The camera tells me there are "No Images". Yet, it also tells me that "The Memory Card" is full. I shot video just to see it, brand new camera using the 32mb card, and now, nothing.
