On my Samsung Digimax S800, when I put the memory card in, it says to check sd card. What do I do about it?

When the card worked before, check if you did not switch the lock switch down. And check all contacts on the card and in the camera. They should be clean and shiny.
When you recently bought a new card you could have bough a SDHC card and these won't work in your S800.
The S800 only accepts MMC and SD cards, The SDHC and SDXC cards won't work.
A few years ago you still could buy 4 Gbyte SD cards. Now even most 1 Gbyte and 2 Gbyte cards are already SDHC. SDHC was introduced at least 7 or 8 years ago, so all new devices accept SDHC. The SDXC was introduced at least 4 years ago, so in a couple of years, you perhaps only can buy these cards?

I can't install my card in samsung digimax S800

What type and size memory card? The S800 uses MMC and SD cards. It will not work with SDHC cards even though they'll fit into the slot.

Memory card after formatting, say check card (samsung camera)

Probably, especially if your card is a 4GB or larger SDHC card, then it's definitely the wrong card. The older Digimax S800 camera can only use standard SD cards (2GB or less). Fortunately, these are very inexpensive these days, and may be found on Amazon if your local store no longer carries them.For others reading this experiencing similar problems, please see this article.

Card locked samsung s800

Hello Eilee,

Remove the memory card from your camera and check for a tiny switch on it. Make sure it is not set to "Lock". If it is, then switch it back to unlock.

However, if your memory card does not have the "Lock Feature" it could mean that your card is already malfunctioning. Try reformatting it first before buying a new one.

Note: You will loose ALL data from your SD card once you format it.

I can't get the camera to accept a sd memory card. It keeps saying check sd card, but it's brand new. Why is this?

Are you using a 4GB or higher "SDHC" card with your camera? Note that the S800 can only use "standard" SD cards (those 2GB or less). Fortunately, these are very inexpensive these days, recommend checking on Amazon.
For those that encounter this problem, there are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". The most common is trying to use a 4GB or higher SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Other causes 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.
