Just bought a 16 gb memory card for my panasonic lumix tz5- when i inserted it , it says memory card parameter error- this camera is supposed to be able to take a 16 gb memory card, but it wont. works fine, however, with a 2 gb. but one of the reasons i bought this camera was to be able to use the 16 gb- any solutions?

Try formatting the card.

As I am not familiar with the Panasonic cameras, nor did you say what card type you were using, I cannot give specifics on what to format it to (if using a computer) or how to do it through the camera, which may have an error and not recognize the card due to a lack of proper formatting, and thus may not allow you to access the card at all, even to format, or if your camera is able to format the card at all.

Specifying what brand and model of card you are using would help.

    Hopefully the rating means your problem was solved.

    It may also be a problem with the write-protection switch being locked. Normally you can find it on the left-hand side of the card. Unlocking this will allow the camera to access the card again.

My Panasonic DMC-FZ20 says Memory Card Error.


Hi
Please check your cameras capability to support larger sized SD cards.It may not support those two SD cards.Also check for slide locks on the side of the cards and slide them to 'open' before inserting.

Hope it helps.Thanks!

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5 able to download to ipod


Not directly. You can download the pictures to a computer, then upload them to your iPod. If you connect the iPod and the camera or its memory card, you can transfer the pictures from one to the other without storing them on the computer.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5 does not recognise my memory card


1. Go into the menu and find "reset"...follow the on-screen instructions. 2. With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the instructions.. 3. After downloading any pictures from the card, insert it into the camera and do the "format" thing again. everything should work now. Remember, never use the computer to format or erase your card...always use the camera. Also, when removing the card from the computer, always use "safely remove hardware" icon at the bottom right of your computer screen.

SD card - memeory card parameter error


Some camera's, especially older ones, have a limit as to the maximum size of the memory card that they support. Look in the manual to see what the camera can support.

you may try some card recovery software, recommended asoftech photo recovery that helped me before.

If needed, you may do a quick format of the card, and then use asoftech photo recovery to recover files.

i suggest you first try another card to check if the card or the camera is faulty. if it is the canera then it could be the sd card slot that is faulty. this will have to be checked by a qualified panasonic tech.
