It seems to be a problem that others have had as well. I'm going to try a
few other brands. If they don't work, I'll send it back to B&H on Monday.

Jeffrey if you have done all you can, followed the manual as to the 
correct procedure and all has failed,I suggest you return the camera 
since its only a day old for another one.. Apparently there is a problem 
with the circuitry relating to the card receptors.. Not worth having 
repaired as a new camera directly out of the box..
