Fuji FinePix A805 Digital Camera won't recognize SDHC card

I have tried formatting it in the camera and formatting it on my lap top. The dang thing still says card error. Are there certain specs I have to format it to? I tried default. And formatted it the long way and not quick.

The A805 works with SD cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Usually a bad card in my experience - I'm too tight to buy decent cards, and quite a few have given me problems. Luckily they're quite cheap nowadays!!

You could try using a PC with card reader to format them first, and cleaning the contacts carefully.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Samsung S630 Digital Camera, Card Error and Format Error

you have several options:

1. see in the specification details of your camera what memory card is compatible for camera. for S630 it is SDHC/MMC/SD card (Up to 4GB Guaranteed). see if you're using memory card within this capacity and type. If you're using a different memory card type and capacity, try to use memorycard that is compatible with your camera.

2. try to use memory card to other devcie like cameras, cellphones and other devices and if it still has error problem, your card may be the one defective. use other cards.

3. try to take pictures without using memory card. use only the internal memory of camera. if camera still display this error meassage, camera needs service.

hope these options solve one of your problems. c",)

SOURCE: SD card won't format

I just bought a Xacti HD800 and had the same problem.

The solution was :
- Turn on the Xacti with NO SD card inside
- It will ask you to enter informations like the date.
- Then at some point he will tell you it needs a card to store information and while expect you to insert a SD card
- Insert the SD cart, the formatting process will start automatically and last like half a second.
- Enjoy your new toy !

I hope this will help you.

-----

La même en français.

La solution afin que l'appareil formate bien la carte SD est de suivre les étapes suivantes :
- allumer le Xacti sans la carte SD à l'intérieur
- saisir les info demandées comme la date etc
- il vous demandera d'insérer la carte SD à un moment afin de pouvoir enregistrer les info
- Mettez la carte, il formatera automatiquement (en même pas une seconde ...)
- C'est bon !!!!

SOURCE: Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera will not

The S2 IS is designed to work with SD cards, not SDHC cards. While an SDHC card will fit into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to stay with SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

My memory card is saying proteced card how can i fix this


SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

Sorry it says card error then card not initialized.


If you mean that your camera won't format the card, make sure you're using a card the camera can use. For example, if your camera can only use SD cards, then it won't work with an SDHC card.

HI THERE ,, IS THERE ANYWHERE ONLINE I CAN DOWNLOAD THE SOFTWARE DISC FOR FUJI FINEPIX A805,, I HAVE LOST MY ORIGINAL ONE


You don't need any special software. The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or, despite what said first, you can use any photo cataloging program, such as iPhoto on Mac or Windows Photo Gallery on Windows or Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

I bought a tevion 4 GB SDHC card but it wont work in my finepix a820 camera


Sorry, but the A820 was designed before the newer SDHC format card came out. Although it looks exactly the same as a standard SD card, the format its uses is very different. Sorry, but there's just no way that you can make an SDHC card work with your camera. You'll need to use a standard SD card only, those 2GB or less. Fortunately, 2GB standard SD cards are relatively inexpensive these days, as you can see from this link from Amazon.

For others reading with similar problems, but different cameras, 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.

The F45FD uses xD and SD cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work. SD cards top out at 2GB.

I have a Fujifilm Finepix A805 digital camera, an when i insert my SanDisk 4GB SDHC Card it says '!CARD ERROR' on the left hand side of the screen. I have no idea why it doesn't work. Please Help, many...


Try reformatting the SD Card. If you have a computer with an SD card slot, insert it in there, right click on the card, and click "Format..." If you use a Mac, use Disk Utility to format the card.
