If there are any metal tabs inside the camera to receive the chip, I wonder if one or more of them may be bent over and not making any electrical connection now. Or perhaps it is a cracked board.

SOURCE: My Kodak P850 do not accept SD cards 4 or 8GB,

Technically speaking, SD cards only go up to 2GB. (Actually, some very rare 4GB SD cards exist, but I doubt you have one of those.) Cards 4GB and up are SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) cards. Your camera was designed before the SDHC specs, and thus is not compatible with SDHC cards. This is not something that can be changed in firmware, since there is a hardware compatibility issue.

SDHC devices will accept SD cards, but the opposite does not hold true. SD devices will not accept SDHC cards.

You need to format the internal memory with no card in the camera. Then, you need to format the memory card in the camera.

Why will my camera not work when I put an sd card in


Check the memory card and memory card slot. If everything is clean and intact, look to see what size card you are using. The camera may not accept SDHC cards, so try an SD card that is 2GB or smaller.

Memory card error


Yes you can have dammaged the contacts in the memory card holder.
The some or all contacts could be bend, or even the switch (feeler notch) can be pusshed in or broken.
It is difficult to explain, that is why I also put a picture inhere.

You should use a light, and a magnifying glass to look in your camera.
The picture is from a memory card reader, but in your camera it should look the same. You can see nine contacts, and to the left on the picture you can see they look like a triangle. All contacts should look like thatand not one is allowed to be bend or have a dent.
When you look in the memory slot, to the right (not on the picture) you should see a little notch. That is the notch that reads the lock switch. Telling the camera the card is locked or unlocked.
If that part is missing, or broken, or inside the camera that switch is dammaged, your camera will keep telling you there is a card error.

Waht could you do?
If one of the nine contacts is down, toy could try to get it up again, perhaps with a small needle. But please don't open the camera. You could do even more damage, if you are not skilled in that. If you can't fix it, contact a pentax certified repair centre and ask them what it will cost and how long it will take to repair.

My camera read "card Error" when i put one in


Probably the first thing to try is formatting the card. There is a function in the camera menus to do this. If it won't format or gives an error when you try, then there may be an issue with the connectors in the card slot or the card may be incompatible.

Maybe it is having trouble with the size of the memory. Memory cards have grown enormously in capacity in the last couple of years, and even relatively new cameras may not be able to cope with the memory size of the newest cards. It is often difficult to find out the maximum capacity a camera will use, as today's memory cards are much larger that those available when the manual for the camera was written.

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.

Your problem is that you have purchased an incompatible memory card.

You have an SDHC card, but your camera only accepts SD cards (exactly the same shape, but different internal hardware) up to a maximum 1GB capacity. There is no way to update your camera to the later SDHC standard as it simply lacks the correct hardware to format them correctly, although devices designed to accept SDHC cards can use the earlier SD cards.

You only have two solutions: replace the camera to match the SDHC card, or buy the correct capacity SD card for your camera. In practice, I strongly advise that you go no higher than 512MB as the s500 was happy with some brands of 1GB cards and not with others. This is not a unique problem to Samsung: when your camera was designed 1GB cards simply didn't exist and so hardware compatibility testing was not possible.

I hope you manage to use this information to solve your problem. Please take a moment to rate the free answer I have provided for you and any testimonial which you might wish to add is always welcome!

How do I download my camera's memory card onto my acer extensa


The "odd shaped port" you are referring to is most likely:

The Express Card slot (replacing the slot known as “PC-Card” replacing the slot formerly known as “PCMCIA”) are the biggest standard slot on a laptop designed to handle stuff like wireless cellular modems with antenna and micro hard drives. Most people won’t ever use this slot, but it’s a lot faster than it’s old relatives now that it connects directly to PCI-Express. From: www.geek.com

Do NOT put your memory card from your computer into that slot. Since you have indicated that the USB cable connector option will not work, you will have to go out and buy a memory card reader that is compatible with you memory card. They are relatively inexpensive and easy to find at most electronics stores. Plug in the card reader (USB) and seat in your memory card and the OS of your laptop should detect the card and allow you to download the pictures.

Hope this helps!

Memory card camera wont accept just getting card error,


Please format memory card by going to camera Menu options in
DZ-BX35E and try.
If problem still exist, then memory card slot could be damaged.
Check new memory card in other camera to verify that card is OK.

Camera won't accept an SD Memory Card anymore


Hello

If the card works in another camera or another card doesn't work in your 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
