Try a different card. You could also test the card by putting it in a card reader and see if you can read and write files to it from your computer..

Thanks for listening to me ... I don't think I have a card reader on my computer (Dell Vostros 220 - Home Edition, Vista) ... do I have to buy another unit ? ... I only have (1) drive (CD R/W), ummm ... what else can I say ?
Sorry, I'm really disappointed here ... I'm learning on the fly ... I don't see anywhere on this tower where I can insert this SD memory card ! and the only other memory card I have is in another camera (8GB) and I don't want to mess that up.

You can buy an external card reader for really cheap these days. Any computer store like Best Buy will have them.

Thanks for your response. Currently I've let my 14-yr old daughter mess with it and she got it working ! ... I have yet to use it myself; but, we'll see ! ... She switched memory cards between the 8gb and the 2gb (which I had already done) and the little no-name camera actually worked. She (daughter) didn't really like the color in the little no-name camera, so now it's mine !! ... and I'm going to love it ! Thanks again for your help ...
