Put new memory card in and it shows "error"

I just recently purchased a 2 gigabyte SanDisk memory card and when I put it in my camera it just says "error" then goes to a screen where it says "Format Media" and "Are you sure?" and if I press yes it just goes to the menu and if I say no, then it turns off. Then I turn the menu off and it says "error" again. Help! I need this memory card before I go to Australia on Friday!

Re: Put new memory card in and it shows "error"

Couple possibilities. first I would try formatting the card from a pc. do you buy any chance have a card reader for your computer. in xp you just right click on the card and format it. if that dosn't work there is a chance that the card is defective. go to the store you bought it and see if they can help you there. Sorry if that dosn't help. Have fun in Australia btw. And good luck

I have one canon camera, presently i am using sandisk 1GB memory card without any hassel. recently i purchased one Sandisk 4GB memory card. after putting this new memory card into the camera, I m always...

A 4GB memory card will be an SDHC type. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but many cameras won't work with the SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

Memory card Sandisk 4GB gives error memory card

The S50 uses SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card, and will not work in the S50. You will have to confine your choices to cards 2GB and smaller.

Error on formating new memory card in camera error says memory card is full brand new card i tried 2 in faact same error kodak c310

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 and SDHC up to 8 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.

My sony dsc-w100 digital camera says format error and hangs on. what shall i do??

Take out memory card from camera, turn it On and check does it show format error?
If yes, press Home, Memory option and format internal memory.
If camera does not show format error then put back memory card in and press Home, Memory card option and format it.
This will delete all files/ data and will refresh memory card, take some pictures and check.
If after formatting, still format error exist, put new memory card.

My Nikon Coolpix 2100 Lexar starter memory card has become unreadable

It sounds like your Dazzle is not compatible with the sandisk. Maybe the Sandisk CF UltraII card have a new update software in it.

Need more mp

My son has the same camera with a 1 gigabyte Sandisk sd card. This allows him to store about 200 pictures at full resolution. The cards are very inexpensive. Here is a link to a 1gb card that is $8.28 on
If you plan to take small movies I would get a 2 gig card. Videos use much more memory. This one is $11.88 from Amazon"
Costco also has great prices on SD memory.
Your camera will not accept cards larger than 2 gigabytes.
If that helped please rate me well.
Take Care,

Message: Memory Card Error - Memory Card Parameter Error on 4gb SDHC card

I recently bought a DMC-TZ3 and have been researching memory cards. Several sites sell cards with the camera and list the card type. I would suggest buying one of these cards. Any cards larger than 2gb must be SDHC type SD cards. There appear to different types of SDHC cards, 1.0, 1.1 and 2.0. Check out for a description. 2.0 cards are not compatable for devices developed prior to 2.0 so that may be the reason for the camera problem. So far I haven't seen anything that states what type SDHC card the camera requires. I found a computer memory site that that sells memory that they say will work. There may be others.
