Do I use the orange or the black adapter card to insert a memory card into my olympus stylus 840 camera? I bought the camera last night. The lady also said I'd need a PNY 2GB microsd memory card. Well I've tried inserting the tiny black card into the larger black card AND the orange card and neither one seem to fit in the camera. Am I inserting wrong or is it just not compatible??

Hey. I bought a new camera some days ago with a new Digix 4gb SDHC memory card. I went to Disney World and took normally a lot of pictures.

I checked and It isn't locked or something. Also, I tried using a memory card reader on my laptop, and it says I have to format to read the card. I REALLY don't want to lose the pic
