Yes I still got the same message
Have carried out the formatting procedure but getting 'check the connected device' . I am sorry, but I think I have mislead you. The 'memory card error' message came up when I put the card direct into the printer. I have sorted that problem as the printer cannot deal directly with cards of more than 2MB. But the USB connection problem from the camera still persists.
On the camera screen
Many thanks that seems to have solved the problem. Interestingly the old cable has no signs of damage and has not been mistreated.
I am very grateful for you help.
