Try to re-insert the card. If that doesn't help try to reformat it/delete all its contents. Also check in the manual what kinds of cards does the camera generally work with (although i doubt that is the problem).

Gateway digital camera DC-T50 5.25 megapixels put new memory card and a card error message appears


The camera uses SD cards. I assume your new card is 8GB, not 8MB as you stated. If this is the case, it's an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work in the SD-only camera. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.
You may download a copy of the manual here.

Your Finepix F10 does not support SDHC (High Capacity) memory cards.
You can only use standard SD cards with a maximum capacity of 2GB.

New technics are not always backwards compatible, sorry for that.

I have a Pentax Kx and recently bought an 8Gb memory card. However I get a lot of blank images with the error message 'image cannot be displayed' especially if I use the continuous shooting mode....


Dear,

First of all you need to confirm that what kind of memory card your are using. The officially recommended type and brands are here

Toshiba *SD Memory Card - Capacities: 512MB to 2GB *SDHC Memory Card - Capacities: 4GB to 32GB


Panasonic *SD Memory Card - Capacities: 512MB to 2GB *SDHC Memory Card - Capacities: 4GB to 32GB

SanDisk *SD Memory Card - Capacities: 512MB to 2GB *SDHC Memory Card - Capacities: 4GB to 32GB

rather than these might be problematic or not compatible...
Check this first

Best of luck!

I just bought a new memory card (8gb) for my digital camera (Samsung NV10) and when I inserted the memory card, I kept getting "Card Error". It said I should format the new memory card and I tried to...


The largest SD card you can use in your Samsung NV10 is 2GB. thats why once you insert the 8GB sd card its shows card error or need to fromat.

FYI. for every digital camera there's a compatible memory card and you can see from the box or manual and Its writen SD or SDHC.

goodlukc and thank you

Card error


Your camera was designed (2004) and manufactured (mostly 2005) before current generation SDHC cards became available. It will therefore be incompatible at the basic hardware level. There were some non-standard SDHC cards around in 2006 but your camera was never designed for those either.

Stick to regular SD cards, in theory your camera can handle 4GB maximum but the design team wouldn't have been able to certify compliance with that size of card as they also weren't available at the time. To be safe, stick regular SD cards with a 2GB maximum capacity.

Sorry there's no way for you to use your SDHC with your present camera but at least I hop that I've prevented you from wasting time and money on buying another incorrect memory card.

Please return the favour by taking a moment to rate my answer.

Canon PowerShot SD 630 Digital Elph "Memory Card Error"


Hi,
I'm sorry to tell that PowerShot SD 630 does not support SDHC cards over 2 gig.
If you want the camera to take a card over 2 gig then you are stuck standard SD cards.
The other camera does support the card because it's a higher model.


Regards.

SDHC card won't work


Your card is an SDHC, your camera supports only SD/MMC cards. I know this because i found thisp ostlooking for a way to make it accept SDHC cards, a software update could easily work in theory but someone would have to write that update. Technology changes fast doesnt it.

Bought 8gb memory card - error message


Hi, I suspect that the SD card is to big for that camera as that camera is a lower end camera. You should try the SD card in a camera that is known to be able to handle such a huge card.
