Two Problems with Pentax Optio 30

Group,
I have 2 unresolved problems with my Optio 30.
1.The camera will oly work with 1.2 volts NiCd or NiMH batteries and if I attempt to use 1.5 Volts batteries the message Battery Depleted comes and the camera does not boot.

2.I had been using a 64 MB sd card but lately the camaera when turned on gives the Memory Card Error fault.Trying to format results in the same message.The SD card can however be read using a card reader.I am now using the built in memory which enables me to take 7 pics in Superio mode.

Please help!!

IMO,
1.The camera will oly work with 1.2 volts NiCd or NiMH batteries and if I attempt to use 1.5 Volts batteries the message Battery Depleted comes and the camera does not boot.
- Read the user manual and stick with the instruction. Using different battery voltage will not get you anywhere as the instruction manual says otherwise.

2.I had been using a 64 MB sd card but lately the camaera when turned on gives the Memory Card Error fault.Trying to format results in the same message.The SD card can however be read using a card reader.I am now using the built in memory which enables me to take 7 pics in Superio mode.
- use a different memory card and test it. If same problem persist, then something is wrong with the camera.
