Had a similar problem running windows XP, it couldn't read my sandisk SD card on a usb sandisk imagemate reader/writer. The solution on Microsoft's site was worthless, having already applied all XP patches. Fortunately, I tried accessing the SD card under windows 2000 and it worked fine, so I formatted the SD card in windows 2000 and now it works fine in XP.

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: Card Error Message

the error message is because the 2gb sd card is not supported (is too big for the camera)
try 1gb sd card and it should be fine

SOURCE: Format error

I don't believe the camera can handle a card of that size. I believe the camera only supports up to 512MB cards, anything above that is not guaranteed.

To rule out a faulty card, format it in the PC using a card reader.

Samsung camera L50 card error


If this card has been used before in a previous camera, it would say card error, because it was formatted for the previous camera. However if you do not have any pictures on the card yet I would go to the camera settings menu and format the card. DO NOT format if you have pictures that you would like to keep on the card, because when you format, you stand a chance of erasing them. After formatting the card it cannot be used in any other camera until formatted again.

Hi,
SD Memory Card is compatible with your Digimax 401 camera. You just need to format the card.
Formatting a memory card
** This is used for formatting the memory card. If you run [FORMAT] on the memory card, all
images, including the protected images, will be deleted. Be sure to download important
images to your PC before formatting the memory card.
** If the memory card is not inserted, the internal memory will be formatted.
** Be sure to format the memory card if you are using a newly purchased or non-initialized
memory card, if it contains data that the camera cannot recognize, or if it contains images
captured with a different camera.

Formatting a Memory Card
1. In any mode other than Voice Recording mode, press the MENU button.
2. Press the LEFT/ RIGHT button and select the [SETUP] menu tab.
3. Select the [FORMAT] menu by pressing the UP/ DOWN button and press the RIGHT button.
4. Select a desired sub menu by pressing the UP/ DOWN button and press the OK button.
- If [No] is selected : The memory card will not be formatted.
- If [Yes] is selected : A [PLEASE WAIT!] message appears and the memory card will be formatted. If you ran FORMAT in Play mode, a [NO IMAGE!] message will appear.

What happens if you choose the setup format on the


Hi,
If you choose the format option in the camera's menu it will basically format your memory card or the internal memory if you don't have a card. Formatting will erase all your pictures, try not to choose this option until you have backed up all your pictures to a computer.

Formatting Memory Card


did you format your card? try going into the set-up menu on your camera and you should find a format option - THIS WILL ERASE ANYTHING YOU MAY HAVE HAD ON THE CARD...so if you have anything on there use a memory card reader and transfer it to your computer before formatting. If the formatting doesn't fix the card error message you could try formatting it on your computer (if you have a pc, go to 'my computer' and under 'removable devices' you should see the memory card, right click and choose format - i don't know the process for macs, but i would guess do a ctrl+click on the memory card when it appears on the desktop). If that still doesn't work the card is probably corrupt and you may need a new one.
