    Do you have a card reader for your computer? If so put the card in there and see if the card can be read. I would bet there is something wrong with your camera and not the card if you tried other cards. Its likely cheaper to just replace the camera than get it repaired, unless it is under warranty.

    I've seen a camera not want to use an SD card before and you could take the card out and put it back in and that would fix it, I'm guessing it won't in your case because you would have had to do that when trying other cards.

    check your camera menu, perhaps it is stuck on internal.
