Answers :

One picture almost certainly going on to internal memory - not card.
Try cleaning card contacts with a soft lint free cloth. Also if Format option available from menu try formatting card. Any images previously stored will be deleted. If no luck you could have duff card. Can you beg, buy, borrow another card to check.
Format the card. Go to the menu and hunt around until you find the command which does it. ALWAYS format your card when you clear it of photos.
