optio S50 problem when I put in SD card

Hi everyone,Im new to the site so please forgive me in advance if Im in the wrong place ect. Anywho, I love my pentax S50 and am going crazy for over a year now not knowing what to do,my camera works fine "until" I put an SD card into it and then an error message card error and it shuts down.Also when I shake the camera I can hear a sound like a tiny piece of plastic is maybe inside? basically I cant use it even though it behaves perfectly and thats whats so annoying.Iv tried different sd cards,but always the same card error.any advice would be appreciated,thank you X

Given the value of the S50 in financial terms, it's not worth repairing it, and you'll probably have to pay for a repair estimate anyway.

I'm afraid it's time for a new romance!

Try formatting the card using your computer. That might get it to work. Also, remember that the S50 can't use modern SDXC cards.
