Error message Built in memory full. Also won't read memory card.


You need to format the internal memory with no card in the camera. Then, you need to format the memory card in the camera.

When I try to take a picture a message reads "card error." It asks me to format and when I choose yes, it eventually tells me that there is a format error.


Sometimes the memory cards just go bad.

If you have a card reader on your computer, put the car in there and see if the computer can read it or format it.

If not, its time to buy another card.

Your current card may be under warranty since some have 5 year and even lifetime warranties.

Good Luck!

I have tried 3 different Sd cards in my Norcent x125 DCS-760 camera. All 3 times I received a ''card error'' message. What can I do to fix this???


Hi,

May i ask, have you formated these cards before putting them into your camera?

If not then the first step is to format your SD card through the camera menu. (Read your camera manual to see how to format your memory card). If this does not help, try another memory card (say the small 16/32mb card that came in the box with the camera). If this card does not display a "memory card error", then the other card is at fault.

Hope this helps,

Karlos

My cell phone dont recognize memory card that i was using


Hi there, I assume that you are changing the card from the original phone to another model or brand of phone - if so, then it is likely that the card is formatted to the original phone and as such will not be read by other phones (hence your error message).
There will be a function in the phones that will format the card to that phone, but be aware that you wil lose all information on that card.

Canon ZR200 keeps reading "card error"


Format the card with the camera. If that doesn't work, format the card as FAT (not FAT32) file system with your PC.

Zoom card problems


this is also my first posting, and I am having a simular problem with the same camera type. When I place the card in the camera, I get the No Card message. When I use the card in a multicard reader I can view all the images. Since the camera is not detecting a card, i can not attempt to format it
