Hi I purchased a 4GB SD HC memory card for my samsung digimax s500 but when i install it into the slot the camara screen is just blank, I did get a very faded message saying the the card has to be...


Your problem is that you have purchased an incompatible memory card.

You have an SDHC card, but your camera only accepts SD cards (exactly the same shape, but different internal hardware) up to a maximum 1GB capacity. There is no way to update your camera to the later SDHC standard as it simply lacks the correct hardware to format them correctly, although devices designed to accept SDHC cards can use the earlier SD cards.

You only have two solutions: replace the camera to match the SDHC card, or buy the correct capacity SD card for your camera. In practice, I strongly advise that you go no higher than 512MB as the s500 was happy with some brands of 1GB cards and not with others. This is not a unique problem to Samsung: when your camera was designed 1GB cards simply didn't exist and so hardware compatibility testing was not possible.

I hope you manage to use this information to solve your problem. Please take a moment to rate the free answer I have provided for you and any testimonial which you might wish to add is always welcome!

Hello, I just purchased a replacement memory card and when I install it is says on the screen "check sd card" after reading the packaging for the new card I realized it says camera may not support SDHC...


HC stands for high capacity meaning 4g or more. Your camera manual should tell you if you can use the card. Maybe all you need to do is make sure the slide switch on the side of the card is unlocked and then you should format the card in the camera.
