There are a few different reasons why your camera may not be reading the memory card.
Troubleshooting such problems can be a little tricky, especially if no error message appears on your camera's screen.
The cause and solution may include one of the following:
·The card may not be the right type for the camera: First make sure the memory card you are using is compatible with your camera. For example, a SDHC memory card often will not work with older memory card readers. Even though SD memory cards are similar in size and shape to SDHC cards, they use different software for managing the card's data, meaning older readers sometimes cannot recognize the SDHC cards. Sometimes you can solve this issue by updating the memory card reader's firmware to give it the ability to deal with SDHC cards. Check the Web site of the manufacturer for your memory card reader to see if new firmware is available. It is also a good idea to check with your camera's manufacturer (on it's website) to see if an updated version of your camera's firmware is available.
·The card is not fully inserted in the camera. Turn off the camera, insert a card into the slot, then push to seat it.
·The card or a file on the card may be corrupt. Photo file corruption can occur when the battery power is too low when writing a photo file to the card, or when the memory card is removed while the camera is writing a photo file to the card. One way to check if it is the card or your camera is to try moving the memory card to a computer, then try accessing the photo file directly from the computer to see if the file actually is corrupted, or if your camera is just unable to read a particular file.
You can also double check this issue by using another memory card in your camera and see if it works as it should. If the memory card is unreadable on any device, the next step is to reformat the memory card. Look through your camera's on-screen menus to find a "format memory card" command. However, keep in mind that formatting the card will erase all photo files stored on it. Some cameras just work better with a memory card when that memory card is formatted inside the camera. If you do reformat the card, make sure to let the process finish itself before removing the card. Removing a card during formatting may damage the card.
When you are sure here is nothing important on the SD card, you first should try to format it. If not possible in the camera, try it in a computer FAT 12 or FAT 16 should work.
But when you put in the card, make sure the card is not locked and the battery / memory card cover is closed and locked correct.
Everything is still in the manual.
Just to make sure you understand how to unlock the memory card I place a picture. The switch should be like on the 64GB card (up)
The PDR-3300 works with MMC and SD cards. Your new 8GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work in the camera. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.
Any SD card will work. You don't need to specify a particular brand, and speed won't make any difference to the camera (though a faster card may speed up downloads via a card reader). Just make sure you get an SD card, not an SDHC card.
pull the SD card from the the slot and it right side up with the label facing you, there is a short slot on the side with a sliding switch. move it to the other side of the slot and that will unlock the card. (it probably go moved as your were putting the card back into your camera) good luck!
I have the same camera and bought a 4GB PNY SD card and it wouldn't work, so I read the manual :) The manual says, "SD Memory Cards having the following storage capacity can be used on your camera (Toshiba PDR-3330):
8MB, 16MB, 32MB, 64MB, 128MB, and 256MB"
Hope this helps! -Kim
try this first: pull the SD card from the the slot and hold it right side up with the label
facing you, there is a short slot on the side with a sliding switch.
move it to the other side of the slot and that will unlock the card.
(it probably go moved as your were putting the card back into your
camera) good luck!
