I have 17 of these cameras and for some reason after a while some of them develop this problem. It is very frustrating but I can usually get them to work by taking disk out, turning on camera, put in auto mode, wait for delay to switch to ready then put card in. I works most of the time and if not turn it off and keep trying. Some kind of glitch in the computer I guess. Hope this helps.

Why does My Panasonic SD 90 says No Card even when an SD card is inserted and the flap closed?


Check that the SD cards are compatible with your camera. Some older cameras can't read newer, large capacity cards. If that's not it also check the pins within the camera using a strong light and magnifier to make sure they're clean and not bent.

SD card can't be read "Card Locked" is all that


There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". Some include trying to use a 4GB SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Others 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.

Camera reads communication error when trying to upload photos what might be the prob


I BELIEVE THE REASON IS THE TYPE OF SD CARD.
THERE ARE SD AND SDHC. IF YOU ARE USING SDHC.
I BET THE ONE CARD THAT DOESNT READ IS AN HC. THIS IS ALSO TRUE WITH OLDER CARD READERS. I HAVE AN OLDER AND NEWER CARD READER.
I JUST HAPPENED TO PUT AN OLDER SD CARD IN MY NEW POWERSHOT SD1300 AND IT READS FINE, ALL NEW CARDS SDHC WONT READ.
I BELIEVE SD IS UP TO 2GIGS AND SDHC IS 4GIGS AND HIGHER.

Computer not finding SD card, I put the SD card in like normal but nothing happens. I go into computer and it does not show up there either


SD cards are not created equally! There is so much more to know than just the capacity.
There are many things about SD cards most people are not aware of. After having numerous problems with my cards, I thought I would share what I learned, mostly from online articles, trial and error!
There are SD cards (Secure Digital)
SDHC cards (SD high capacity)
and SDXC cards (SD extra high capacity, high performance)
Speed Class: There may be a C with a number inside the C printed on the card, (or a U with a 1 in it) - if there is no C or U on your card, it is a C2 card.
C2 is for basic data and photo use and has a slower processing speed.
C4 and C6 are acceptable for up to basic video.
C8 and C10 are high performance, fast processing speeds - and cost more.
The U1 symbol indicates fastest processing speed available, and will cost the most. For large size, HD videos.
If you are trying to use a basic SD2 card (no C rating or C2 rated) for a high quality or high speed video or large RAW photo, you may have problems with your device. The card may not be able to keep up speed-wise. These are generally older, or lowest priced cards. More information and photo examples on the speed class here: https://www.sdcard.org/consumers/speed/speed_class/
Your device will read SD cards up to the capacity it is capable of. A device with SDHC capability will be able to read basic SD cards, but might not be able to read an SDXC card, so you may think you have a defective card when you actually just have a device that does not have the capability to read it.
If your computer's SD reader or peripheral card reading device has an SD card reader and it cannot read SDHC (high capacity) or SDXC (extra high performance/capacity) it will reject or not see the card and you might think you have a defective card. Put the card in your camera or other device you are going to use it for, and then using the USB cord that came with the device, plug that into your PC. The PC will be able to read the card that way, edit it, etc.
After copying all files on the SD card to your computer, you may wish to format the card before using it again. When formatting the card, IMPORTANT: Make sure you have copied all the data you want to keep onto your hard drive, and make sure it is formatted FAT32. I kept formatting a card FAT (which was the default for this card), and the recordable capacity of the card kept getting smaller...and smaller...a 2GB card was only allowing 350, 250, 125 MB of data to be stored on it! I kept hitting a brick wall trying to copy files onto it. I kept formatting the card, thinking there was some de-frag issue or corrupted portion, and the capacity of what it would store kept diminishing - until I formatted the card FAT32. ONLY THEN was the card able to store to its true capacity. I was able to do this in Windows in Explorer - right click the drive the SD card is in, select Format, verify the Capacity (card size), verify the File System (use the pulldown menu to select FAT32 if it is not selected), and then click Start and allow the computer to remain undisturbed until the format is complete. I found a web page that covers this: http://pvillecomp.com/
There is an SD website that offers a download for proper formatting of your SD card, with downloadable instructions. I was using Windows to format my SD cards, but the SD website recommends using software that specifically formats SD cards. Here is the site: www.SDcard.org. Click the Downloads section.
Some older devices can only handle smaller SD cards (2 GB or smaller), so if your device cannot read a particular SD card...check your owner's manual. There is usually a limit to the size, capacity, speed, type, etc. of the cards each device can handle.
It is also possible to partition an SD card so it can be read by more devices, or separated for organization purposes. I prefer smaller SD cards when possible to avoid a huge loss if the card becomes damaged, lost, etc., but for those who have cards that are 16+ GB in size they may want to partition them. Here is a website for that:

Hope this helps!

My 4GB PNY Optima sd card will not read


Try the 4GB card in some other reader, or your camera, to confirm that it does work.

It's possible that your card-reader will not support anything over 2GB.

I have a 4GB HC(?) card,it wont work in my computer


a 4GB card is certainly HC (High Capacity). What type of flash memory is it?

Be aware that some computers have a different boot sequence. Meaning that some will try to boot from the DVD/CD drive before the hard drive, some will try to boot from a USB device before those. The card being present in the drive could be telling the computer to try and boot from that (which I'm 99% sure is the problem there).

Next is the issue with the card being read. Until I know what type of flash memory it is (SD - Secure Digital, CF - CompactFlash, etc..) this is speculation. I know with SD there is standard SD and SDHC (SD High Capacity). Older card readers are only capable of reading standard SD cards and while they will acknowledge the existance of SDHC because it is the same form factor, it won't know how to read it.
