Having problems with your Samsung Digimax S730 Digital Camera ?

I just bought an SD card and put it in....I get an "Error" message. I asked a rep at Wal-Mart what she thought it could be. She said that the card was too big. I'm not sure what she meant by that.I bought the same type of card that was in it. It was also giving me the "Error" message with the prior card.
