    Sorry, i don't understand. Can't you just format the new cards in the camera?

    Use the format setting in the D50's menu to reformat the cards.

    I'd bet the cards have to much memory capacity for the D50 to handle.

    How much memory was each of the old cards, and how much memory is each new card?

    Try to format it in another camera and use it in Nikon D50 camera. If you are unable to use it in Nikon D50 then the card might be incompatible with your camera.

    You can go through the manual of camera.
