I just bought a Sandisk SDHC 4GB Card and have taken photo's on it with a digital camera. Having inserting it into my card readers, neither will read the card. I have a 1GB card that they read OK. Why can't I read the new card?

The card reader doesn't support SDHC. This is a common problem. But if your reader has MS card port and you have a (micro-)SD to MS adapter you may be able to read it from that port.

That may be why Sony's MS is more expensive... ; )

It's possible the card is corrupt - I had a similar problem but the chemist where I get my pics developed managed to get them off for me. My card was corrupt and I sent it back and got a refund. Doesn't help when you can't get your pics though. Sorry that's all I can offer.

I have a kodak Easyshare c310. I bought a Sandisk (SDHC card 4gb) for the my camera and its not taken any pictures. Could you tell me whats wrong.

SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but many cameras won't work with the SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

The card is still useful and valuable, but not with this camera.

SanDisk ImageMate 12in1 cannot read SCHC 4GB or higher cards

Correct!!!! This card reader cannot address cards that are higher then 3gig and cannot read sdhc cards. Most older readers will not be able to read the HC type card, and by older I mean if its 6 months old or more. To read these cards you need to purchase a new card reader. I know, My camera uses 4gig cards and I was unable to access the pics until I bought a new reader..

Cannot download pictures from 4GB SDHC SanDisk Card

If your card reader is working, the card will show as a drive in "My Computer". Open the drive and you should see your photos.
On your desk-top, right click and select "New" then "folder" and name it "Camera Photos".
Select the photos you want to transfer from the camera card, select "file" from the windows toolbar, then "cut".
Open your new desktop folder and select "file" again from the toolbar, then, "paste".
Your photos should transfer in a minute or so.

Will Sandisk yltra II 4gb card work with Nikon D40?

I assume you mean Sandisk Ultra..and the answer is Yes it will work fine.

A good choice card also..

Just beware that some computers will need the SDHC reader.
For example my SDHC cards can be read in XP without the reader but my Vista machines need the reader.

Good luck and happy shooting :-)

Message: Memory Card Error - Memory Card Parameter Error on 4gb SDHC card

Hi - You will need to get an SDHC reader and then try the following procedure.

You can either plug in you camera to the PC as it should appear as a “Removable Drive” or put the card in a card reader attached to your PC.

Next, if you are comfortable with using a PC then you can download a FREE utility that will recover your photos from the following link:

If you need something a little more "user friendly" then you will need to buy the software. If you search the web for photo recovery software you will find many.
One I have used successfully is RescuePro that used to be bundled with some Sandisk products. Now you can get it from the link below:

You can try the demo to see what you can recover before buying.

Remember - Do NOT try & write anything back to the card until you can recover your pictures to your PC safely!

Sd Card reader not recognising SDHC cards

When You Insert your SD card into the internal card reader, then the SD card is not recognised by the system and the SD card drive doesn't show there. The problem can be because of driver issue, system issue and device issue.
To fix the problem you need to go at device manager if there is a yelllow sign in SD card controller, the problem is most probably caused by a driver issue. Then you need to update the driver. You can also download the driver for your card reader.
Also, check if your SD Card is broken. You can also check it into different devices port.
If it is detected then you can backup of your data.

If the problem not resolved by any means and you require you SD Card data then I will suggest you read -

Message: Memory Card Error - Memory Card Parameter Error on 4gb SDHC card

I have been rummaging around trying to find two solutions: 1) to get my Toshiba Satellite card reader to read SDHC cards and 2) to get my desktop USB ports to read SDHC cards. While MS offers a hotfix for XP, it does not always work because of the different Chip Sets in computers. I have also read where posters say that the SDHC card works in the compter NOW, but NOW will not work in the camera... and the SDHC card NOW works in the camera but will NOT work in the computer.... I found a tekkie article that may help clear the air... SDHC cards are formatted in Fat32x (NOTICE the "x") and SD cards are formatted in Fat32 (no 'x') and these compatibility problems arise when the user unwittingly or unknowingly RE-formats the SDHC card, either when it is put in the computer and won't read or when it is put in the camera and won't read... but just don't bother to mention that THAT is what they did upon inserting the card and only proceeded to complain about an apparent incompatibility. The camera or computer might even mislead you asking if you want to format the card..... but all is not lost. The Panasonic site gives a program AND a pdf instruction book on How To ReFormat an SD or SDHC card specifying the proper Fat32x or Fat32 format. Hope this helps.

Message: Memory Card Error - Memory Card Parameter Error on 4gb SDHC card

I recently bought a DMC-TZ3 and have been researching memory cards. Several sites sell cards with the camera and list the card type. I would suggest buying one of these cards. Any cards larger than 2gb must be SDHC type SD cards. There appear to different types of SDHC cards, 1.0, 1.1 and 2.0. Check out for a description. 2.0 cards are not compatable for devices developed prior to 2.0 so that may be the reason for the camera problem. So far I haven't seen anything that states what type SDHC card the camera requires. I found a computer memory site that that sells memory that they say will work. There may be others.
