Kodak memory card 4GB SDHC not connecting to my pc.

I have a printer that also reads memory cards. Well today I got my new card and took a toad of pictures of my day and I tried to upload it and my printer didn't even notice it was then. I have the same card just a 256MB card and it connects fine. What is going on?

The problem may be that your printer doesn't support memory cards this big - this is often the case with older printers. Two ways around this are:

1) Use the data cable for your camera and transfer the images off the camera (with the card in the camera).
2) Buy an external card reader you plug into a USB port on your computer. These are inexpensive (under $20) and you can buy them at most camera and computer stores.

My Kodak EasyShare V530, won't accept a memory card, you insert a memory card, and it doesn't even acknowledge that there is a memory card inserted.


I bet the memory card that you're inserting is a brand new 4GB SDHC card (your camera can only use 2GB or less standard SD cards). There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". The most common is trying to use a 4GB or higher SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Other causes include problems with the tiny slide switch on the side of the card, or the electrical contact switch internal to the camera. The problem may also arise from simple formatting problems if the card has never been formatted in the camera (note that this will also erase the card). Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link.

I can't seem to format my C875 easyshare with a 4gb kodak memory card. Help!


The problem is that your camera is only compatible with SD cards, not SDHC cards. You bought a larger card for your older camera, not noticing that it was SDHC (or not knowing that it mattered). The new card doesn't work, not because it or the camera is broken, but because it's not compatible.

Cards up to 2Gb are generally SD.
Cards of 4Gb are generally SDHC.
Cards over 8Gb have to be SDHC.

(There are exceptions. Sometimes, manufacturers make 4Gb SDHC cards but some have errors; they disable half of the chip and sell it as 2Gb, but it's still SDHC. 4Gb cards are almost always SDHC because they're cheaper, but 4Gb SD cards do exist. They are so rare that I've even seen a guru on this site claim they don't. I did own one once, but it was very expensive and turned out to be so unreliable that I had to return it. I don't recommend looking for one, because of the problems.)

Your solution is to go find a 2Gb card, and be extra sure that it doesn't say "SDHC" on it.

Hi, got new kodak camera and 4gb memory sd inside. i only took 8 pictures so far and said internal memory full. i dont understand why? i want to keep 8 pictures and it should be plenty as using 4gb and...


4GB "SD" cards are almost always actually SDHC (high capacity) cards. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but they are slightly different electrically. Many cameras won't work with SDHC cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

So your camera is not able to use the 4GB card, and is ignoring it and using internal memory only. That memory is tiny and won't hold many pictures, and when it is full, the camera cannot work at all. You need to delete the pics in the internal memory and get a memory card your camera can understand (2GB or less).

I accidentally used a damaged SD card on my Kodak P712, so it flashed that "error" message. but after that every SD card i used, whether my own or new, it always flash that "error"...


The problem is that your camera will only read SD cards, not SDHC cards. After you damaged the SD card that you've been using for years, you bought a replacement, not noticing that it was SDHC. The new cards don't work, not because they or the camera are broken, but because they're not compatible.

Cards up to 2Gb are generally SD. Cards over 8Gb have to be SDHC. 4Gb cards can be either SD or SDHC, but are almost always SDHC because they're cheaper. (I would avoid the rare, expensive, and problematic 4Gb SD cards.)

Your solution is to go find a 2Gb card, and be extra sure that it doesn't say "SDHC" on it. (If it does, it probably means that they made a 4Gb card, but there were some error locations and so they disabled half of it and packaged it as a cheap-brand 2Gb.)

Memory card compatibility. camera won't read or format PNY Optima SDHC 4GB.


Hi,

I am sorry to say that the C875 is not compatible with SDHC cards. Only SD or MMC cards.
You can get SD cards up to 2GB.

This is not unusual in cameras of a few years old.

Hope this helps.

A memory card in a digital camera can be read in the camera but not in the computer


My guess is that you have an SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) card in the camera, but the card reader attached to your computer can read only the older SD cards. SD cards that are 4GB and larger are SDHC types, and should have SDHC prominently displayed on the label. The card reader on the other hand, was probably made before the SDHC type cards were ever made.

You can find a new card reader that support the high capacity cards for under $20 in many places. Unfortunately, the older card readers can not be upgraded to read the newer cards - but the SDHC readers can read the older SD types.

PNY SDHC 4GB memory card


Hey Teelo,
I would try reinstalling your software, or updating your drivers. You could also try getting a card reader that connects to a USB port and try transferring your images with that instead of connecting the camera directly to the computer. I also have included a link to the manufacturer where you can download the latest version of your software, and troubleshoot your issue if still needed. I hope this helps!
