Re: SD card not registering

You need to first of all, upgrade the firmware in the Sandisk Card (call sandisk support and they will help you out)

2ndly, you need to update your camera's firmware to the latest to support large cards.

I did this and my 1d mkII can now read my 4gb SD

Hi there! I have a Canon PowerShot SD700 is. I have bought a Sandisk 8 GB. My camera cannot read it. It says: Memory Card Error. What can I do about it? Many thanks for your help

The SD700 works with MMC and SD cards. Your 8GB card is an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to use SD cards, which max out at 2GB.

My Samsung Digimax A7 camera will not load memory cards. I insert a card and then turn on the device, which prompts a format for the card then I hit yes, the camera thinks for awhile then just turns off. ...

The Digimax A7 may not be compatible with "High Capacity" SD Cards (SDHC). If this is the case you will need to locate an SD card that is 2GB or less in size as anything larger than this is a high capacity card.

I bough a sandisk sdhc 8gb card for my samsung s1030 and it comes up on the scren memory full. Can resolve this problem please.

I hate to say this but, your camera will only handle up to 2GB MMC\SD of external storage. This unit has 45MB built in as well but the two do not combine. The Camera is is simply not capable of using an 8GB SDHC memory card. Drop back to a regular 2GB SD card and you'll be fine.

Sorry bud, it's not a HD camera but, it is a nice camera! have fun with it!!!

Hope this answered your question.

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.

Wanting to see if a certain memory card can be supported.

Based on your camrea's manual (I read it on Kodak's site), your camera will take an SD card so you will most likely be fine as long as you do not use the SDHD type (high density) . The SDHD's store more data and it seems to be newer cameras support this type, not the older. The Ultra II is simply a faster memory than the standard and I believe there is an Extreme type that's even faster. The speed is best when getting images off of the memory card. In camera buffers help get the data to the card. After you aquire one, format it in your camera.

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.
