SD card will not stay in camera

The SD card will not stay in the camera. It should click into place so I can shut the card cover and it is impossible to do that. The card works when I can manage to hold the card in and quickly shut the cover, but as I said that has gotten just about impossible. Is this likely a card problem or a camera malfunction and if it is where should I send it to be fixed?

Re: SD card will not stay in camera

Try to use another SD card in your camera. If the phenomena is still exist, the problem is with your camera (in most of the cases it is a broken plastic part of card's "house").

Why does it say that there is no external storage for my camera? It won't let me use the camera.

there might b sd card mounting problem.. try using ur sd card in any other device and see if it works.. if it does not, there is little u can do. apps are avaiable on android market to resolve sd card problems and revover data. however, if it works fine in other device and only shows problem wid the cam, it might b that the device does not support the sd card, ie. the storage capacity is too large to be mounted by the device-.

My camera first would not recognize the memory card that was in there and later the memory card would not click and stay in place.

Are you sure you are using the correct memory stick?
Most cameras use SD cards, but Sony uses Memory stick Duo pro.
Make sure you have the right memory, because not all Memory sticks are compatible and not all can be user for both, stills and video.
If you have the right card, make sure you only put it in like described in the manual. If you try to put it in, the wrong way around, toy could damage the camera. (most likely you will bend the contact points inside the memory card holder) and if you already did, it could be almost impossible to get that right, without sending in the camera to a Sony service centre.
For memory card use, see page 276 and 277 of the (english) manual. The manual can be found online.

Need to know how and where to insert sd card

There are usually 2 places that an sd-card can be inserted in a digital camera - Inside near the battery under the door, or a separate flap on the bottom of the camera labeled SD.
  • If there isn't a slot specifically for an SD-card on the bottom of your camera, open the battery door.
Try and locate a very thin rectangular ****. Once you have found the slot, take your sd card and push it inside the slot until you hear a click, that means it's securely in place.

When i put a new memory card in, the camera reads "memory card needs formatting", but when i click format, it does nothing

While some Easyshare cameras will use SDHC cards, the documentation for the Z740 states that it uses MMC and SD cards.

Try using an SD card. If that works, then stay with SD cards. If that doesn't, then there's something else wrong.

These are the physical specs of Kodak Easyshare V530

The bottom and the top of Kodak V530

The left side and the and the front of Kodak V530

The back -lcd display and the right side of Kodak V530

On the right side of the Kodak v530, just look at the above image, you will see a slot in the center of the silver band covered with white felt curtain that protects it from dust. On this slot is where the SD card is inserted. Just insert the card carefully, and feel the click when SD card is placed properly, and push the card carefully until it bounced back and release from the slot when removing the SD card.

SD Card Recognition

Perform the following procedures when your digital camera does not detect the SD card. 1. Restart the camera Turn the main power OFF, or open the battery cover or SD card/battery cover to remove the battery. Make sure the SD card is fully installed. Then, turn the main power ON, or insert a battery again and close the battery cover or SD card/battery cover until it latches. 2. Initialize the SD card Format the SD card with your camera. Formatting procedures varies depending on the camera model. See the Camera User Guide supplied with your camera for the instruction to format the SD card. When formatting the SD card, slide its tab upward to cancel write protection. It is impossible to format the SD card while it is write protected. 3. Check if your camera detects other SD cards (If you own multiple SD cards.) If your camera does not detect the SD card after performing the procedures 1 and 2, check if the camera detects other SD cards. If it does detect other SD cards, the SD card that wasn't detected may contain some problem.
