Memory card Our old memory card stopped working in the camera. It said "memory card error". I bought a new card, 8gb duracell sdhc card, and when I put it in it said"memory card error" again.

Hi, we just bought a new Samsung ES30 still camera with a new 4GB SDHC 4 Silicon Power SD card. We have formatted the SD card in the camera as per the instructions on page 76 of the User Manual which came on the CD with the camera. The issue is that the photos taken do not get stored on this memory card eg the folder is empty when checking the memory card for its content on a PC by connecting the camera to the PC via the supplied USB cable.

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. From one moment to another, the camera gives me the message "Memory card error" and won't let me take nor view pictures. I tried removing the memory card and everything. 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 pictures.

Yesterday, I tried turning the camera on and the lens opened and shut automatically and said Lens Error with a Large Red Exclamation point.
