SOURCE: CAMERA READS -CARD ERROR-AFTER INSERTING A NEW MEMORY CARD

First, make sure that the new memory card does not have the protect tab in the lock position. The new card must be unlocked and formatted before your camera will be able to use it. Also, make sure that the size card that you have purchased has not over shot the ability of your camera. I think that a 2 GB card is as large as you can use. Just because the card fits into the slot does not mean that the camera will address it!

Hello

OK, if the memory card itself is locked, you might sometimes get this error code. All you need to do is to take out the memory card and switch the lever on the left side to the unlock.

If the error is still displayed after you did the above, you might want to try the card in another camera.

If the card works in another camera . the problem is with your card reader in your camera.

If you open you sd slot and look inside with a sharp light , you should be able to see on the left side of the slot there is a little copper or spring steel lever switch. This switch work as follows:

1. When no card is inserted / no write protection , the switch is open and thus the protection is off.
2. When locked card is inserted , the tab is depressed and tells the camera that the card is lock.

Contrary to popular belief ,the little tab on the sd card is not an electronic switch and does not physically influence the card operation itself. If you put a locked card into a camera without a sd lock switch , you would still be able to use the card normally.

It is incredible difficult to fix this switch because of space limitations in the sd card. Look into the sd slot and if you can see the switch , use a needle to pull the little tab down toward the base of the camera by about 2mm or until it works being careful not to bend it.

If this does not resolve your problem , there might be a short in the switch circuit and the camera will need to be disassembled to resolve this error. This should cost no more than $50.

Please feel free to contact me if you need further information

Kind regards
Andrea

Cant take pics,says card protected. used earlier and was fine, now wont take pics at all


Hello,

Have you checked your memory card to see if it IS in fact protected? It is amazingly easy for some camera memory cards to become accidentally protected.

Check and see if you card has a switch that allows it to be set to read only. And if it does make sure it is not set to read only.

I just bought a Dell laptop, how do I download my pictures from my Sony camera? I am not a computer buff. Hope you can help me.


Hi, your sony camera should have a software bundle that came with it as well as a cable which should easlily allow you to hook up your camera and download/view/edit/store your photos on your computer, depends on the software user interface and how it looks you may find it easy but if not there is another method: your computer may have a memory card reader port, it should read SD/MMC/XD and in your case you need it to read MS or MS Pro... The MS and MS Pro are the types of memory cards used by sony, all you need to do is take the card off the camera and put it into the reader in your computer, few seconds and a pop up will come that will allow you to copy your pictures and browse/explore what is on the card... if your computer does not have the reader, pick up one at your local RadioShack, BestBuy or Walmart or any other electronics store... just be sure to pick up one compatable with your card (MS or MS pro) the reader can be put into your computer USB and will work without drivers... Should be under $10.... Best of Luck

Problem with the pictures taken


Are you trying to read the card with the camera connected to the computer using a USB cable? If so, try using a separate card reader.

Goto any radio shack and get a external memory card reader this will allow you to get your pictures if the camera or cable is defective.

Just bought a 16 gb memory card for my panasonic lumix tz5- when i inserted it , it says memory card parameter error- this camera is supposed to be able to take a 16 gb memory card, but it wont. works...


Try formatting the card.

As I am not familiar with the Panasonic cameras, nor did you say what card type you were using, I cannot give specifics on what to format it to (if using a computer) or how to do it through the camera, which may have an error and not recognize the card due to a lack of proper formatting, and thus may not allow you to access the card at all, even to format, or if your camera is able to format the card at all.

Specifying what brand and model of card you are using would help.

Memory card is write protected


Take your memory card out of the camera and switch the position of the little "lock" tab. That should fix it and you can start saving images.

Memory card not working


Not saying it is, but are you absolutely sure its not the camera software itself. Does it have any warranty? Is the card a new card and have you made sure that the TAB on left of SD card is not allowing READ ONLY. The tab flips up allowing the card to be formatted bit like the old floppy disks.

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.
