20 Most Recent Samsung Digimax S800 Digital Camera Questions & Answers


Look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

When the card worked before, check if you did not switch the lock switch down. And check all contacts on the card and in the camera. They should be clean and shiny.
When you recently bought a new card you could have bough a SDHC card and these won't work in your S800.
The S800 only accepts MMC and SD cards, The SDHC and SDXC cards won't work.
A few years ago you still could buy 4 Gbyte SD cards. Now even most 1 Gbyte and 2 Gbyte cards are already SDHC. SDHC was introduced at least 7 or 8 years ago, so all new devices accept SDHC. The SDXC was introduced at least 4 years ago, so in a couple of years, you perhaps only can buy these cards?

Make sure it has been inserted the correct way. If so, try another card. If After checking those things you still get that message, you may need a repair

Some cameras have a maximum limit to the capacity of memory card that can be used. Please make sure that you have the right capacity card. There is also a lock (yellow tab on the side) on SD card. Make sure that it is not in the 'lock' position.

I've got the same problem as misred. Is there anybody who knows how to solve this problem? Is it the CCD?

You don't need any special software.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or, despite what I said first, you can use any photo cataloging program such as Windows Photo Gallery or Picasa.
