Hey,

The problem is your camera doesn't work with the 4gb card, its too big. Sorry!

Your stuck with 2gb cards. Id suggest to echange the card to two 2gb cards.

Let me know if you need anything else.


Thanks,
Ekse

Hi - I have a Pentax S6 with a 1 GM SIM card. I just bought a 4 GB SIM card and am getting a memory card error message. The camera doesn't work with the 4 GB SIM card. What's wrong? What should...


The S6 works with SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card and will not work with your camera. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

SanDisk SDHC Card 4 GB i bought already. When i insert / fit into the camera , i start the camera after installation of the card properly. It is showing on the screen that memory card error . Nothing...


Sorry. The 550 works with MMC and SD cards. While SDHC cards fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work in this camera. You need to go with MMC or SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

What is the maximum size sd card for a Pentax Optio A10? The 4 GB card is not being recognized by the camera (which I just got).


The A10 accepts SD cards, which max out at 2Gb. The 4Gb card is actually an SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) card, not an SD card, and thus will not work in devices designed for SD cards. Compatibility goes only one way--SD cards will work in SDHC devices but not the other way around.

Largest capacity SD card for Pentax Optio S5N


The maximum supported size is most likely 2GB SD Card. Cards with 4GB and more are following a new (incompatible) standard called SDHC (SD High Capacity), SDHC cards work only in devices specifically supporting SDHC. The Optio S5N uses the old SD standard where 2GB are the maximum size.
