Camera will not work with sd card

The camera works great without a SD card. As soon as you put a card in and turn it on the camera will lockup. When we try to set up the camera none of the buttons will work.

    we have two identical cameras with the same sd card. with one camera as soon as you put the sd card in, it says: sd card locked. this doesn't happen with the other camera, nor after swiching the sd cards. so the problem is with that one camera. is there a solution?

Had the same problem, blew out the card slot with air and fixed it. Apparently poor contact points with the card.

The problem is with the card lock reading pin on the PC board. Sometimes the contact isn't good, so it brings the card locked message. You need to open the camera up and play with the contact pin so it make permanent contact with the casing. This way, it will always see an unlocked card. Make sur you don't put in a locked card!

I don't have this brand of camera, but my experience has been that you may need to format or re-format your sd card.  ez

Vivitar 508nhd wont work when SD card put in

Are you sure you have an SD card (2GB or smaller)? The 508 won't work with higher-capacity SDHC cards.

When i put my sd card in my camera wont turn on

The PDR-3300 works with MMC and SD cards. Your new 8GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work in the camera. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

My camera works without my microsd card in as soon as i put it in it wont do anything

Please try another sd card, if the problem persists the sd card slot /reader is faulty and causing the camera to lock up. If the problem goes away with another card, theres a problem with your old card.

I have a samsung digmax s600 i works fine without the sd card inserted but when i insert the sd card the camara wont turn on

Be sure you have a standard SD card to put into this camera, not a SDHC type.
You will be limited to a maximum of 2GB with SD, but it should work perfectly.
If not, check the SD card in a notebook or PC's cardreader and/or replace the
SD card with another one. If this does not work the SD card interface in the
camera may be defective.

The Optio S4 works with MMC and SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible. You need to go with cards 2GB and smaller.

I have a Samsung S730 digital camera and like it very much. I have a 1GB SD memory card and it works great, but I want to purchase another memory card, but the only SELL 2GB SD cards is that ok to use in...


The Samsung S730 digital camera will work with 2Gb Secure Digital (SD) cards without an issue. If you want to go with a higher capacity card you can also use 4Gb and 8Gb SDHC cards.

Hope this helps

Canon Power Shot A400 will only work with original Canon SD card

Make sure you are using an SD card and not an SDHC card. The SDHC protocol is newer than your camera, and your camera does not support it. SD cards have capacities up to 2 GB. Your camera should work properly with any SD or MMC card.

SD card problem

Format the SD card using camera's format function. The SD card should work without a problem. BTW, what do you mean by Camera type: Qv-R41/Qv-R51? The camera should be either 41 or 51. 41 is 4MP and 51 is 5MP. Which camera do you have?
