Question about Samsung L200 Digital Camera

1 Answer

I have a 256MB SD memory card (SanDisk). The case has split and my camera and my computer cannot read the card. Is there anything I can do? My Samsung L201 Camera and other cameras cannot read the my SanDisk Memory Card (256 MB). It all started when the memory card went full and I changed it and used a 2 GB SanDisk instead. When I put it in my camera again, the card cannot be read. It asked if I wanted to format it but my files would be deleted. I put it in my laptop and the laptop cannot read it at all. It doesnt respond when I click the drive. I tried recovery programs but they cant find the drive either. What shall I do?!?! I need those pics!! :((

Try to check your memory card with at least 5 different computers. if they have card readers much better. memory cards have to be given at least 8MB for processing. It may have been used up even the space for processing. If haven't save the files before you kept it. It was really damaged. It needs to be formatted to make it function. There could be other reason why your memory card couldn't be detected. I'll just tell you next solution if you have tried this one. For now just do my suggestions for confirmation coz your pc has no support format for your memory card.
Please rate this solution for me to check any update.

Thanks....

I have put a new sd card in my camera,and its says memory is full. What could be wrong.


A few things can be happening first the SD card may have the lock switch in the lock position I'm including a diagram to show the correct positioning.
tri3mast_94.jpg

The next thing is you said you put a new SD card in. All memory cards need to be formatted to the camera they are going to be used in formatting cleans the card (yes I know it's new) and makes it compatible to the camera. Also each time you download pictures to the computer the memory card needs to be formatted to re clean the memory card and make it ready to accept new pictures. One other thing your camera has a small capacity in todays standards and the largest SD card I see being used is a 256mb, if the new card is larger then 256mb this could be the problem as well. If this is the case then it might be possible to update the camera firmware. However it would be a whole lot easier to purchase a 256mb card. Format the new card making sure the lock is in the right position and continue on as you have been.

I do have 5 years old SD card reader that does not read anything over 1GB. Try to ready your SanDisk memory from a newer computer or laptop that was how I resolved the issue.

Nikkon coolpix L1 After downloading memory card .. then putting back into camera. Reading says "cannot read memory card." Checked card out at store verified that it is good. Why does it not work in my...


A couple things you might try.. remove the card carefully and check the position of the "lock" tab. Make sure it is fully in the unlocked position - not locked or a point between the two positions. Reinsert and try again.

It sounds lie you're using a card reader to download the pictures - try formatting the card while in the card reader via computer. The card should be completely empty when the format is complete. You can even try copying files to and from the card to make sure its ok and format again. When complete, try again in camera.

If the problem persists, check to make sure the card is on Nikon approved memory card list for use with the Coolpix L1 (provided below):

The following is a list of approved memory cards for the Coolpix L1 digital still camera. These cards have been tested and approved for use with the Coolpix L1.
The L1 uses SD (Secure Digital) memory. Sandisk:
  • 64MB, 128 MB, 256MB, 512MB, 1 GB, 256MB*, 512MB*, 1GB*
Toshiba:
  • 64MB, 128MB, 256MB, 512MB, 1 GB, 128 MB*, 256MB*, 512MB
Panasonic:
  • 64MB, 128MB, 256MB, 1 GB, 256MB*, 512MB*, 1GB*
* - Cards rated for 10MB/s (high speed) Other cards have not been tested. For more details on the memory cards listed above, please contact the manufacturer.

The list came direct from Nikon Support. Other cards may work, but only those on the list are approved. Successful use of other cards can not be guaranteed.


I hope this helps!

My argus cintar DC5315 will not work with a 2GB SanDisk SD card


Due to the devices age (i have one too, i bought it Christmas 2005) its internal parts are not as strong as newer cameras, and therefore, cannot support as much memory as new cameras. I have an 8gb SD card and the camera does not even turn on with that much space, but with 128MB it works just fine.

Memory card cabablility


Hi mystical9473,

Even if your camera does not have a slot for this type of card, you may be able to keep it for backup or storage. There are memory card readers available that read several different formats, meaning you can transfer files back and forth between the cards or your computer.

Depending on the prices you find, you may be able to purchase an additional SD card for less than a media card reader, so do your research before making a purchase.

Thank you,
Jason,
Go Ahead. Use Us.

No memory card will work in my Coolpix camera


Nikon has tested the following cards and approved their use in the Coolpix 3200:

SD memory cards:
SanDisk 16/32/64/128/256MB
Panasonic 16/32/64/128/256/512
Toshiba 16/32/64/128/256MB

Other brands and capacities of cards may work, but Nikon cannot guarantee their operation. Check with the manufacturer of the third-party card for compatibility information. Nikon recommends keeping one of the approved cards available for troubleshooting.

Multi Media cards (MMC) are not recommended and should not be used.

What is the maximum amount of SD/MMC memory on e330


In my opinion there is no any limitation. I am pretty sure that you can use 1GB SD Card without any problems. Only thing that can happen is that access to your data can be a little bit slower.
