No. The S500 only works with SD cards, up to 2GB in size. It will not work with higher-capacity SDHC cards.

No . The pictures that are stored on the SD card can be downloaded on to the PC as the images are stored on to the card and will not be deleted unless you do with the camera menu or the PC.
Once the SD card is taken out remove the battery and tryt o tap lightly on the camera with the hood down. It might release any jamming . repeat with the battery put in , with the power ON.
If not contact Samsung service.

SOURCE: I have a digimax

SDHC is an extension of the SD standard that extends the capacity from 2GB to 32GB. It's backward compatible in that devices designed for SDHC cards will also work with SD cards. It does not go the other way---that is, SDHC cards will not work in devices designed for SD cards.

I presume you mean a 2GB card, since a 2MB card might hold one picture.
The Digimax 4010 works with SD cards, not SDHC cards. You may use an SD card. Just make sure it is an SD card, 2GB and smaller. SDHC cards start at 4GB and go up to 32GB but, as stated earlier, will not work in the 4010.

Will a 4gb hp sdhc work with a samsung digimax cyber 530 camera?


Your model is identical to the Digimax S500, the name is different only because some Samsung model numbers change according to who sells them.

Your camera is compatible ONLY with SD cards, it does not support the later SDHC standard. There is no possibility of updating to the later standard as it's a hardware limitation.

This theoretically means that you're limited to 2GB maximum, but even that's risky as Samsung specifically state on page 64 of the user manual that compatibility is only guaranteed up to 1GB.

I hope this has helped you to purchase the correct memory card, all I ask in return is that you kindly take a moment to rate my answer.
