Question about Uniden UDC7M Digital Camera

1 Answer

SD cards - Sandisk

2GB SanDisk SD card, bought from local PC market worked well, however the camera a Uniden UDC-7M 'locked up' in an unrequested format of the card a week later. To fix one had to select 'Yes' and format the card to get any functionality back to the camera. This lock out (except for format) happened to my wife at a wedding, needless to say my ears needed repairs when she returned. When I checked the camera it tuned on OK but .... the camera wanted to format the card and nothing else would work except off or format. And NO it wouldn't return to Menu. The retailer (a national one)suggested a Kingston Card of 1GB not the recommended SanDisk. For the last few days nothing I did with either card has caused the returned of the problem. I'm not confident that I have really fixed anything! This may come back at a really bad time!!!

Do you think maybe the problem is with the memory card rather than the camera. It is always safest to format the cards for the specific camera you will be using it for the first time you use it, that way it does not require to be reformated more than once a year ....after you make sure that you have backed up all your photos first ! Next time pack a spare card, but the camera promises to be very dependable.

Sandisk SD card 2 gb still locked

SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

SD reads Memory error locked in camera and computer will not recognize SD chip. Other SD memory chips are recognized by computer. Have moved lock switch up and down and is not in locked position.

Is it a newer 4GB or larger SDHC card, and are you trying to use it in an older (4 years or older) camera? If so, that's your problem. SDHC format only came out a few years back, and older cameras can not recognize them. You'd need to use 2GB or less standard SD cards only. Fortunately, these are very inexpensive these days, and widely available on Amazon if your local stores no longer carry them.

The P880 works with MMC and SD cards. Your new 4GB card is an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work. The camera is limited to working with cards 2GB and smaller.

Have a Kodak EasyShare C743, bought a SanDisk, won't format

Your camera was designed before the SDHC format came out. Sorry, your camera can only use standard SD cards, those usually 2GB or less. An SDHC card will not be recognized properly by your camera. If you really want to use a 4GB card, do a Google search for SD and "non hc", with the non hc in quotes. Believe that Transcend makes one.

Canon PowerShot SD 630 Digital Elph "Memory Card Error"

I'm sorry to tell that PowerShot SD 630 does not support SDHC cards over 2 gig.
If you want the camera to take a card over 2 gig then you are stuck standard SD cards.
The other camera does support the card because it's a higher model.

My argus cintar DC5315 will not work with a 2GB SanDisk SD card

Due to the devices age (i have one too, i bought it Christmas 2005) its internal parts are not as strong as newer cameras, and therefore, cannot support as much memory as new cameras. I have an 8gb SD card and the camera does not even turn on with that much space, but with 128MB it works just fine.
