What's the difference between 나는, 저는 and 내가?

They all mean "I", correct? So I'm assuming there are different circumstances as to when I should or shouldn't use each one.

    Yes,they all mean "I"
    나 - informal term
    저 - more formal term
    는 is a topic particle

    내가 = 나 + 가
    가 is an object particle

    I found this really hard to understand at the beginning too, I still don't think I could give a clear explanation of the two, but I think this does quite well:
