It is not the camera but your memory card. Here is the easy fix: With the card inserted in your camera, browse the menu for *reformat memory card* or similar. If it doesn't have this, plug your card into your card reader on your computer, find it in the list of *My Computer*, right click it and click *Format*. Make sure to reformat it using FAT. If you don't have a card reader, you can sometimes do the last thing I described by plugging your camera into your comp with a USB cable.

**Remember that reformatting erases all of your pics, so try to salvage as many as you can before you do any of these steps.

Yep, either the data is corrupted or the memory card itself is damaged.
