Re: Camera does not recognise 1Gig SD Memory Card

  • Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from or
  • 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
  • 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  • 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  • 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
  • 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

    I keep getting card cannot be used every time i put a memory card in my nikon coolpix s210 what can i do to fix this

    If formatting does not work then most likely the memory card id faulty.
    Memory cards such as SD and USB memory sticks do not last forever. they do fail eventually after many writes and file file deletes or damaged by not using Safely Remove Hardware on the computer.

    How to Recover Pictures From Fujifilm FinePix S700 Storage Media

    With 7 mega pixel camera, 10x optical zoom, 2.5 LCD, picture stabilization mode, and i-Flash intelligent Flash, the Fujifilm FinePix S700 fulfills all the requirements of any photographer. The storage media (SD and xD memory cards) used in this camera allows the photographer to save audios, videos, and photos of different sizes. Damage in storage media can occur any time, resulting in fatal consequences, like inaccessibility of data saved in the memory card. In most cases, the photographer encounters an error message stating that the card is corrupted. To overcome such corruption scenarios, the photographer needs to restore the data from an updated backup. But all photographers do not create a backup on regular basis. For them, a third-party Camera recovery software acts as a boon and helps them recover the data.
    As a real-world instance, you encounter the below error message while trying to view the pictures saved in your SD card (inserted in Fujifilm FinePix S700):
    After the above error message pops up, the data saved in the SD card becomes inaccessible.
    Few main causes for the above error message are:
    1.Incorrect SD card format.
    2.Incompatible SD card.
    3.Memory card corruption due to unexpected camera shutdown, virus infection, and interrupted read or write operation.
    To resolve the above error message and to access the data saved in SD card, you will need to:
    1.Use a compatible SD card.
    2.In case of memory card corruption, format the card in Fujifilm FinePix S700 camera. Though formatting brings the card in reusable state, all the audio, video, and picture files get deleted. To recover the deleted data, you will need to choose a powerful Camera recovery software.
    Such recovery tools use effective scanning methods to ensure complete Camera data recovery. These tools can be downloaded from the Internet and used by anybody. Such applications are safe as they harm the original data saved in the memory card.
    Digital camera recovery software is a world-renowned Photo Recovery utility used for recovering data from almost every type of memory card. This software ensures complete recovery of digital files, irrespective of their size or type. Compatible with Windows and Mac OS X, the read only software also recovers data from other storage media, like Zip drives, hard drives, etc.

    What's your problem?My husband got a Vivitar ViviCam 7028 as a rewards gift from his company and we've been busy taking lots of photos and video on it, but when I try to download the photos to my...

    The first problem is explained by the error message. Your camera is consuming too much power to go through a USB hub. Try connecting it directly to a USB port on your computer, without going through a hub.

    The second problem is most likely related to the card reader. You didn't specify the exact model of Belkin reader so I can't give you a definite answer, but it appears the reader is designed for SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it will not work with devices not specifically designed to work with SDHC cards.

    To sum up: If you want to use a USB port, connect directly to it without going through a hub. If you want to use a card reader, make sure the reader is SDHC-compatible.
    If you have additional questions, or some part of the above isn't clear, please feel free to respond to this post.

    I have replaced the battery and memory card, the camera keeps saying I need to format the card, but then it says it is formatting, then gives another message saying the card needs to be formatted....

    If the memory card replacement is an SDHC model card the Kodak z740 will not work with it. The memory card has to be a standard SD card of 2 gig size or less to properly function. Take card out and turn on camera. See if you get same error. You should get missing card error but otherwise be able to operate camera controls such as zoom, flash, etc. If that is fine find old card you used and place back in camera... or purchase a standard SD card from Walmart for 10 dollars

    camera's onboard memory is only 8MB, maybe 1 or 2 high resolution photo. delete the photo on the camera to clear error message and use only no more than 2 gig of sd card. It does not work with higher than 2 gig which is SDHC type sd card.

    Why can't you use 8GB memory card in Z710

    I have a kodak z710 camera with a 2 gig card in it. I was wanting to get a 4 gig sdhc and i wasn't sure if the HC would work with this camera. HC stands for high capacity which means it allows the camera to load files on to the card faster. this may be the problem the kodak may not be HC compatable. but as i have said i have a 2 gig and it works fine with that. and i have a friend that has a 4 gig in thiers but once again i don't think it is HC so i would exchange the card if you can for just a regular SD/MMC card or SD card

    2GB SD card is brand new but camera says it is full.

    Some of the older cameras will not take the bigger cards. You can use the bigger card with your computer to store your photos.

    The problem usually relates to using an SD card that is too high in capacity. THE DXG 518 only supports SD cards up to 1 gig in size.

    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.

    New SD Card wont work - all the others I have do!!

    I believe any SD cards larger than 2Gb are technically SDHC cards, which are not compatible with all cameras. Kingston is a decent company so I'm guessing it's not because the card is a dud. If your camera doesn't advertise SDHC compatibility then I don't think you can get the card to work in it.
