Hi,

Which type of card are you using?

Are you selecting the type of card correctly?

See pg 107/108 of this manual:

A number of people seem to have had this problem:

Whichever type of card you are using (XD, CF, etc) it might be worth trying a different type. Make sure this has not previously been formatted in a computer or another camera as this may cause a Card Error.

Best Regards,
