K20 "Memory Card Full" Error message

Anybody have any idea what's going on? I'm using a SanDisk 8GB SDHC card and it's reading "Memory Card Full" with no images on the card. Replaced it with another card and I'm getting the same message. Other threads suggest a cheap card was the problem, but this is a SanDisk that has been working fine for months. Hope it's not the camera itself. Help,

EDIT: just as well nobody except JR answered, the problem wasn't the card but the camera and it's now in for a 2-4 week stay in a repair spa. Luckily there's a Pentax repair center here in the Phoenix area, so what would have been postage and time was cut down by driving and handing it in person.
