Hi thanks, ***** ***** out a bad mem stick as some of them are bad right out of the gate, try a different one and let me know if you still get that same error?

Also, before you do that please remove all power from your camera, batteries and power cord. Then press the power button and hold it for 20 full seconds ON. Then wait 5 full minutes and replace the batteries. Then try a mem card again, Let me know if that helped or not?

In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.

After further investigation and examination I thought it was a problem with the formatting of a memory card but I will have to probably have to get this unit serviced so I have another card that works perfectly in it. But thank you for your help!
