Basally, you are not limited with the SD card capacity. It is an "economic" decision only. Sandisk is one of the best companies for it.

Some cameras have a maximum limit to the capacity of memory card that can be used. Please make sure that you have the right capacity card. There is also a lock (yellow tab on the side) on SD card. Make sure that it is not in the 'lock' position.

Hi there,I was wondering if a 4GB SDHC card was suitable for a Cannon IXUS 4.0 or not? I can't seem to format it?

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. It is often difficult to find out the maximum capacity card that a camera will use, as today's memory cards are much larger that those available when the manual for the camera was written.

According to Kodak, your camera will support the use of SDHC cards up to a maximum capacity of 32GB. It will also accept any capacity of SD card up to the maximum SD format size of 4GB.

When i insert my 4Gig SDHC card into my Panasonic DMC LS2 camera , it gives a card error message , please check SD card ! What do i do ?

Your camera will accept a maximum SD card capacity of 2GB. It simply isn't capable of handling anything of a larger capacity and in particular is incompatible with the more technically advanced SDHC cards.

Your fix is to either replace your camera with a later model or to stick to using SD cards with a maximum 2GB capacity.

Cant get sdhc card to format with kodak eashshare cx7430

Your camera has no support for SDHC, only SD - this in essence means you can put a maximum of 2gb card.

Good luck.

Maximum memory size of sd-card for canon ixus 40 ????

Check to see if your 16GB card is an SDHC card. If it is, your camera is not compatible with SDHC. (The SDHC protocol was developed after the SD300 came out in 2004).
