Camera won't read new SD card

Got a new 8GB SD card for my Pentax Optio 550 but the camera shows 'memory card error' and won't reformat the card either. Card works fine in other cameras! Any ideas?

How do i unlock memory new memory card on optio 550


SD and SDHC 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.

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.

I put an 8GB microsd card (with an microSD to SD adapter) in may Pentax OptioX and when I open my camera, I have a short delay, then I receive an 'Memory card error'. What's the problem? Thank you.


The S5i uses SD cards. This means you can use microSD cards with an adapter. However, your 8GB card is actually a microSDHC card, which with the adapter appears to the camera as an SDHC card. SDHC cards are electronically incompatible with SD devices and will not work. You need to use SD and/or microSD cards, which max out at 2GB in size.

I have a pentax optio 550. I put a new 8G card in and get a message: Memory card error. I tried formatting and if I did that right it didn't cure it. Any ideas?


Your camera, which came out in 2003, was never designed to use the new SDHC cards. You can only use SD cards up to 2gb.

Inserting either a 4Gb or 8Gb SD card results in a "Memory Card Error".


The S4 accepts SD and MMC cards. SD cards max out at 2Gb. The 4Gb and 8Gb cards are actually SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) cards, not SD cards, 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.

Pentax Optio MX4 won't read my new SDHC 4gb


Does the camera work with any other card? Was the card formatted in the camera? Some cards from some manufacturers just don't work in some cameras.

SD memory prohibits functioning of Pentax E30


I know that usually, you should format the card for the camera that your going to use. Try formating it in the camera and see if that works. Let me know if I can do anything else for you,

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.
