With any new card you have to first format it in the camera, go to you menu functions and look for the format option.. What size is the card, this camera is not compatible with all cards

(Posted by JustAnswer at customer's request) Hello. I would like to request the following Expert Service(s) from you: Live Phone Call. Let me know if you need more information, or send me the service offer(s) so we can proceed.

Your manual is here:
http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/7/0900011257/01/PSSD450IXUS55CUGad-EN.pdf
Page 23 covers formatting
Format is under the setup menu (Wrench)
HOWEVER... This camera is not compatible with SDHC cards which is what yours is... The maximum size SD cards can go to is 2GB I would buy a 1GB SD card and be sure to specify it must be SD and not SDHC, this is quite an old camera and with that size card you will get well over 1000 photos...
