What size memory card does the kodak easyshare cx6200 take?

The internal memory for this camera is 8 MB.

The manual indicates using memory cards of size 8 to 128 MB, so this is an early SD memory camera, following the original SD standard. Do not try SDHC or SDXC cards. The camera will support a 1 GB card. It *might* support a 2 or 4 GB card, but since this is a 2 Mpixel camera, a 512 MB or 1 GB card will allow you to save thousands of jpeg format pictures.

Hi My Nikon S250 memory card has somehow become write protected. How do I "unprotect"?? Thanks in advance.

SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

My coolpix 3200 will not accept a SD card. it rejected the 128 mb card and I replaced it with a 4g card that it doesn't like either. It also will not allow me to format any SD cards

The 3200 works with SD cards. Your 4GB cards is actually an SDHC card, which is electronically incompatible. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Should you use an 8gb sd memory card in a panasonic lumix dmc-fx3 camera ?


The manual lists the following SD cards compatible:

4 GB SDHC Memory Card
2 GB SD Memory Card
1 GB SD Memory Card
512 MB SD Memory Card
256 MB SD Memory Card
128 MB SD Memory Card
64 MB SD Memory Card

An 8GB card may or may not work. If you try it, make sure it is an SDHC card. (Note: HC=High Capacity)

Thanks for using Fixya.

Where can I get a memorty card SD 128 MB for my Kodak Easy Share C 743? Can I also use a larger memory card such as 2 GB or 4 Mb? A. N.

You can use SD cards up to 2GB in size. You cannot use SDHC cards bigger than 2GB. You should be able to get SD cards at any office supply or electronics store. You could probably even find them in most supermarkets and drug stores, though they might cost a little more.

I am unable to un-protect the memory card on my panasonic DMC=LZ5 camera. The same card had been in the camera and in use and suddenly it became protected. How do I get it back to normal (unprotected)?

The manual for Panasonic DMCLZ5 [ date: 20060223 ]

When you are using a
SD Memory Card
•On this unit, you can use SD Memory
Cards of the following capacity (from 8 MB
to 2 GB).
The SD Memory
Card is equipped with a Write-Protect
switch E that can inhibit writing and
formatting a card. (When the switch is slid
to the [LOCK] side, it is not possible to
write or delete data on the card and
format it. When the switch is unlocked,
these functions become available.)

How to remove the protected card message on the camera

Remove the card from the camera and move the small sliding switch to the unlock position (I'm guessing you have an SD card?). That should solve it. Re-install the card and you should be good to go.

Nikon Coolpix 4600: Problem: It won't take any photos, it reads: THIS CARD CANNOT BE USED. The card is 128 MB. I purchased a new card: 2GB but it won't work also. My manual says to clean the contacts...

1) Have you formatted the cards?

2) Try the cards in the card reader in your computer to see if they can be read.

3) Try the "switch off camera - remove and replace battery - switch on camera" trick with the original 128 Mb card in place. This will reset the camera's memory.

4) Note the type of card is important - not all cards can be used in a camera (especially some of the latest bigger ones) - check the type of cards supported by your camera.

I found this at the Nikon USA site (note that the 2 GB card is not listed - as said "Cards are not all the same" and use different drivers to operate them):

Question Which Secure Digital Cards are approved for use in the Coolpix 4600/5600? trnsp.gif Answer The Nikon Quality Department has tested the following cards and approved their use in the Coolpix 4600/5600:

SD memory cards:
SanDisk 16 MB, 32 MB, 64 MB, 128 MB, 256 MB, 256 MB*, 512 MB, 512MB*, 1 GB
Panasonic 16 MB, 32 MB, 64 MB, 128 MB, 256 MB*, 512 MB*,1 GB
Toshiba 16 MB, 32 MB, 64 MB, 128 MB, 128 MB*, 256 MB, 256 MB*, 512 MB

*High speed type of 10 MB/s or over

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.
