SDHC Memory Cards Does Not Work for All Gadgets If you have already purchased a SDHC 4GB card then it is too late if your device model is made before 2007. Partitioning or reverting the card to non SDHC will not really help either. The card is in a rock solid SDHC format, you may just end up wasting it.

lexar 4gb sdhc memory card error


Are your computer's card reader and camera compatible with SDHC cards or only with SD cards? While SDHC cards will fit into SD devices, they are electronically incompatible and will not work in devices not designed for SDHC cards.

I bought a 4GB Memory Card for my Samsung Digimax D53. I put it the camera and Try to format it, but it says CHECK SD CARD. I tried another 1GB memory card and it worked. I know that the problem is with my 4GB memory card. what can i do to to get it work?


Your problem is that your camera only takes standard SD cards up to a maximum of 2GB. The card you have bought is likely to be a 4GB SDHC model. SDHC is a later development of SD; SDHC compliant devices can still use older SD cards, but SD-only devices cannot use SDHC. This is a hardware limitation so there is no way at all to use an SDHC card in your camera.

Note that if your 4GB card is definitely an SD and not an SDHC then it's still incompatible with your camera: very few standard SD devices were ever made with the firmware and hardware to handle the different memory addressing architecture used by the larger capacity card. Some cameras did have firmware updates to allow the larger SD card to be used, but yours is not one of them.

Your only fix is to sell your card (or keep it for another device) and to buy a regular SD card no larger than 2GB maximum capacity.

I trust that my reply has answered your question fully, please take a moment to rate my answer.

Your problem has a very simple fix. The camera which you have is not compatible with SDHC cards. It will only work with regular SD cards.

Your camera is incompatible with the later SDHC specification at the basic hardware level and so cannot format the card which you have purchased.

Note that SD cards are available up to and including 4GB and SDHC start at 4GB so you're not the only person to have made this mistake. In practice there are very few devices designed to use regular SD cards which will work correctly with 4GB SD; Aiptek only designed and tested the IS-DV up to 1GB SD capacity (see page 48 of the user manual), so this is the effective limit to the largest capacity memory card which you can use, if you try larger capacity cards they will either not work at all or will make the camera operations sluggish and you also risk damaging the card itself so that it will no longer correctly format. Aiptek never released any firmware updates to improve the SD compatibility on your camera.

I'm sorry not to be able to offer any way to use your current SDHC card but at least I may have prevented you making another purchasing mistake. Please return the favour by rating my answer.

I hope you find this information helpful.
