No memory card error


You need to change the memory card with new one, because memory card got corrupted and needs replacement.
Thanks

Camera wont read memory card error message say: memory card error, please check the card. I dont think its the card becaouse other devices can read it


There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". Some include trying to use of a 4GB SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Others include problems with the tiny slide switch on the side of the card, or the electrical contact switch internal to the camera. The problem may also arise from simple formatting problems if the card has never been formatted in the camera (note that this will also erase the card). Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link.

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

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
