Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ30 Digital Camera

1 Answer

SD card I just bought a kingston 8GB card for my camera but it will not recognize the card. Says "Memory card error Please check the card". I have formatted the card on my laptop and it works fine on the laptop. I even copied pictures on it and there was no problem. Is there a firmware update for the camera that I need? Thanks

I have the same camera, save the colour (black). As soon as I read your post, an alarm went off. I decided to re-check my User Guide (PDF Eng version, page16), for the Lumix DMC-FZ30:
•On this unit, you can use SD Memory Cards of the following capacity (from 8 MB to 2 GB). Please confirm the latest information on the following website:
http://panasonic.co.jp/pavc/global/cs
(This Site is English only.) • This unit supports SD Memory Cards formatted in FAT12 system and FAT16 system based on SD Memory Card Specifications. • This unit does not support MultiMediaCard for recording motion pictures. • The reading/writing speed of a MultiMediaCard is slower than an SD Memory Card. When a MultiMediaCard is used, the performance of certain features may be slightly slower than advertised. • After recording motion pictures using the MultiMediaCard, the card access indication may appear for a while, but this is not a malfunction. • Keep the Memory Card out of reach of children to prevent swallowing.
8MB, 16MB, 32MB, 64MB, 128MB, 256MB, 512MB, 1GB, 2GB (Maximum)

I just bought a new memory card (8gb) for my digital camera (Samsung NV10) and when I inserted the memory card, I kept getting "Card Error". It said I should format the new memory card and I tried to...


The largest SD card you can use in your Samsung NV10 is 2GB. thats why once you insert the 8GB sd card its shows card error or need to fromat.

FYI. for every digital camera there's a compatible memory card and you can see from the box or manual and Its writen SD or SDHC.

goodlukc and thank you

Sd card not recognizable


I read the following spec for your camera: Recording Media Internal Flash Memory 64MB Video/Image
SD/SDHC Up To 32GB Video/Image
So, I think that an 8 GB SD card should work.

Try another capacity and brand to make it work.

Card error


Your camera was designed (2004) and manufactured (mostly 2005) before current generation SDHC cards became available. It will therefore be incompatible at the basic hardware level. There were some non-standard SDHC cards around in 2006 but your camera was never designed for those either.

Stick to regular SD cards, in theory your camera can handle 4GB maximum but the design team wouldn't have been able to certify compliance with that size of card as they also weren't available at the time. To be safe, stick regular SD cards with a 2GB maximum capacity.

Sorry there's no way for you to use your SDHC with your present camera but at least I hop that I've prevented you from wasting time and money on buying another incorrect memory card.

Canon PowerShot SD 630 Digital Elph "Memory Card Error"


Hi,
I'm sorry to tell that PowerShot SD 630 does not support SDHC cards over 2 gig.
If you want the camera to take a card over 2 gig then you are stuck standard SD cards.
The other camera does support the card because it's a higher model.


Regards.

KINGSTON 4GB MEMORY SD CARD


Check if your camera can support a 4G card. Some don't support than 2GB. if it supports, re-insert the card.
PS. If you have a card reader. Formatting once from your computer can help.

Memory card error in 8GB card


Try to re-insert the card. If that doesn't help try to reformat it/delete all its contents. Also check in the manual what kinds of cards does the camera generally work with (although i doubt that is the problem).

Screen displaying "out of memory"


OK, FIRST OFF THE CARD YOU BOUGHT, IS IT COMPATIBLE WITH YOUR CAMERA? IT'S NOT AN SDHC, IS IT? ALSO, DID YOU FORMAT THE CARD? THESE ARE POSSIBLE REASONS YOUR CAMERA IS NOT RECOGNIZING THE 8GB MEMORY. IF YOU FORMATTED IT ON YOUR COMPUTER IT PROBABLY WON'T WORK IN YOUR CAMERA. YOU NEED TO FORMAT IT IN YOUR CAMERA TO HAVE IT BE RECOGNIZED. DOES YOUR CAMERA WORK WITH THE OLD CARD AND NOT SHOW THE ERROR? ARE YOU SURE YOU HAVE YOUR CAMERA SET TO USE THE SD CARD AND NOT INTERNAL MEMORY? CHECK THROUGH YOUR MENU ITEMS FOR CHOICES. TRY THESE FIRST AND IF YOU STILL NEED HELP, REPLY TO: ARCLIGHT1217. IF THIS IS HELPFUL, PLEASE RATE, THANKS!

Bought 8gb memory card - error message


Hi, I suspect that the SD card is to big for that camera as that camera is a lower end camera. You should try the SD card in a camera that is known to be able to handle such a huge card.
