Hi Eviem,

 

I recommend trying a second, different model/ brand memory card in your camera.  If the issue persists, please contact us for assistance.  For support options, please click here.

found the problem. This is the memory card that came with the camera. Still.... it needed to be reformatted them set the camera format setting on low. Very strange that a new camera should not come out of the box with correct settings & ready to use memory card.
