SOURCE: Display reads "No Card"

Zoom h4 supports cards up to 2GB. And, I'm almost sure, this is a thing that can't be upgraded through software.

I presume you have tried new batteries, and/or the problem persists with the AC adapter. If so, have you tried replacing the SD card?

If these do not work then it is probably time for a repair, but I'd ask the Zoom Corp or your dealer first. They may have heard of similar problems and know a painless fix.

You need to upgrade the H4  firmware from Zoom website

You will need an external SD card reader.

SOURCE: zoom h4 Vista recording

Don't know if this is the problem in your case ... but here's what I did:
Note: I have Win XP
Previous to attempting connection between laptop and H4 as an audio interface I updated the H4 firmware to ver2.4 and connected to the laptop successfully as a card reader. From the laptop, I could see files I knew were on the H4 card.
... but when I tried connecting in Audio I/O mode, my laptop didn't know what to make of the H4. There was a USB mass storage driver associated with the H4 - I could see this from the "Device Manager". I "uninstalled" the USB driver associated to that "unknown" USB device. I terminated the audio connection on the H4, then reconnected. !!! It was recognized as "USB Audio Device" in the "Sound, video and game controllers" section of the "Device Manager". Before, it was listed under "Universal Serial Bus controllers" as a generic USB device with a yellow warning highlight indicating there was something wrong.
Hope this helps!

My Zoom H2 recorder is not recognized by my new computer with Windows 7. What can I do to solve this?


No solution, just a workaround. I have used the H2 with firmware 1.90 successfully with Windows 7, but lately the H2 is not recognized anymore. Built-in obsolescence maybe?
Anyway, I just take out the card and put it in a card reader. It is faster also. Card readers are cheap.

Why when i put flash card into camera the display reads Card Error


You might need to format the card in the camera. This will erase the card so download any pictures from it to your computer using a separate card reader if necessary.

Zoom h4 not recognized by computer


Mac OS 10.4 and higher require the Zoom H4 to be upgraded.
Go to http://www.zoom.co.jp/english/download/software/h4.php#a and choose the download to version 2.20 that applies to you. The instructions are there, but it is a little tricky. You must download the upgrade to your computer and then transfer it to your Zoom SD card. To do that you need an SD card reader. I used my digital camera. I took the SD card out of the zoom and put it in the digital camera. I Plugged the camera into the computer and when the SD card icon appeared on the desktop I dragged the "System Bin" file from the download to the zoom folder. The rest of their instructions were pretty good. Good Luck.

Fuji FinePix S700 Problem


Try to put it on super macro and see if this will reset the zoom function.
Also try to switch between the settings that allow the digital zoom, as compaired to those settings that only allow optical zoom.
If these do not work, you may have a lens that has been dropped, or is stuck, and may need to be serviced. I have the S700, and have never seen this error before> good luck.

Zoom H4 Recorder Says, "Card Full!" But it is NOT!


I encounter this error with my 16 gb SD card and Zoom H4n.
I try to format the card inside and outside fo the Zoom, use 8 gb and 32 gb instead of 16gb card and, but get the same error.

But I find a solution.

1. I format my SD card inside Zoom with builtin utility. (Menu - SD Card - Format)
2. I reinstall Zoom firmware
(instruction and download here: http://www.zoom.co.jp/products/h4n/software/ )
3. I format SD card inside Zoom again.

I took a several test and didn't get a "Card Full" error.

Card read error


Make sure it's a Sandisc, Toshiba, or Panasonic memory card. No bigger than 2 MB unless you have done a firmware upgrade. Try formatting memory card and if that doesn't work then you will have to get a different memory card.
