    Hello and welcome to the forum.

    For starters, do have access to another memory card?

    What happens when you try the other card? Does that work?

    Also, when you take a couple of images, are you able to review your images on the card with the card in the camera, or are you having problems when you try to review your images on your computer?

    Swap out the cards, and see how you get on.

    Where there any other error messages displayed when you inserted the memory card?

    That's a good start. You should always format in camera. Have you tried taking any shots since then?
    If YES, what happened? If NO, I suggest that you do and let us know.

    how large is the card as some cameras are limited in the size they accept and will not write to the larger card. I had this trouble with a Nikon D70, put a smaller card and it worked fine.

    Good to know you are up and running.
    You would do well to get hold of a manual and explore the Canon website for tutorials, it would help in exploring ways of using your camera and get you to lose your novice status quickly..

    As Robert said go on to the Canon Website, My I also suggest you have a look on Youtube as well. Secondly sit down with the camera and try out what all the buttons do, if you get stuck just put it back on the green square or auto setting and start again as this will help you learn about the camera.

    Since you have the 650 I'm guessing your possibly in the UK? Below is the link to canon site for the 650d page and one for the EOS utility. All software available is posted on their site. A PDF copy of the user manual is on the site.
    Driver wise the answer is pretty simple: the EOS utility communicates with the camera so that installs the needed drivers. It allows for downloads and tethered shooting, downloads are slow I recommend using a card reader, as mentioned though always format the card in the camera.

    No limit on the size of card used in a 650D which would be a T4i in the US, Have fun and learn all of the controls. IMHO a nice camera.

    One can never learn too much, there are some great videos on YouTube as well. The basic controls are enough to get started. The basics of photography are even more important. Never be afraid to ask questions, You will find that as far as camera controls go, the 600D is very similar and I have seen some great videos for them.
