Reading imposible and unable to read the card SD D was (bleep) compromise

If you think there should be important pictures on the card, please don't do a thing till you recovered them.
For that use an external card reader on your computer. If there are no pictures on the card, please try to format it in the camera.
Also, if it won't work in the camera, first try to format it (FAT32) on your computer and then again format it in the camera. Also check you did not switch the card to the lock position.

It says reading card when i put the sd card in but never does anything else

It sounds as if the card may be corrupt, so you could try formatting it on PC:-

Put the SD card into the slot on PC, or into an attached card reader. Go to the 'My Computer' screen, and right click on the SD card's icon to bring up the format options. Click on 'format' and follow the instructions. Before taking the card out, click on 'safely remove..'

If the camera can then read the SD card, format the card again in the camera and it should be read ok. Hope this works!

My sandisk sd card isn't working in my camera. My camera is a vivitar 5024 camera, everytime I try to take a picture it says memory card is not ready, it says switch to internel ram. This memory card is...

Have you tried to format the card.
  • Start up a computer with Windows XP, Vista, windows 7or Insert the SD card into an external memory card reader or into the computer's built in card reader. If it the first time a SD card has been inserted into the computer, Windows will recognize the SD card and automatically install drivers to read the memory card.
  • 2Go to the computer view by clicking on the windows start menu icon in the bottom right corner of the computer. In Windows 7 and Vista click "Computer". In Windows XP click "My Computer"
  • 3Right click on the SD drive under the computer heading. A dialog box with different options for the drive will appear. Click on "Format" to bring up the formatting dialog box.
  • 4Select the type of formatting (also known as file system format). In Windows XP or Vista there are several choices including FAT, FAT 32, and NTFS. In Windows 7 there is an added choice called exFAT formatting. This is an improved FAT formatting type with improved meta data capabilities. Choose the formatting type, name if the drive if desired, check or uncheck the "quick format" option, and press the "Start" button. When the SD card format is complete Windows will provide a notification.
    If you need further assistance please feel free to let me know. Thanks and have great day, Midwest-tek

    It wants to format the sd card but never does so i cant use the sd card, it never formats

    The lever on your SD card might be turned the wrong way so the SD card is reading protective.
    Please turn the lever and try again.

    The SD card might not be supported by the model: Your camera Memory card support is: SD/MMC up to 2 Gigabyte.

    The SD card might not be faulty, try another card, since the camera could give you a message like the one you're experiencing.
    Try with a different SD card that is supported by the camera.

    Nikon coolpix s51 digtal camera memory card says can not be used?

    There is a tab on the memory card so you will you need to remove it from the camera and change the position of this tab to "unlock" it.
    You need to unlock the card itself. Take it out and look for a tab on the left. It should be pushed up.

    Memory card

    The camera takes a SD memory card if you have one that is not working you can try to format it with a computer that has a memory card reader and see if that fixes it or try to format it from the camera under the setup menu. Eather way some camera format process and block struckure is diffrent so a memory card needs to be formatted for each camera so work fine between each other and some don't.

    hope this helps.
