    Thanks! But how can I use the SDHC Card of 4/8 GB? Will a Firmware update help?

    Actually, there is one that will do it. Sorry, I was unaware that there was such a firmware update. Seehttp://www.us.ricoh-imaging.com/support/...

If you're using a card larger than 2GB then it's an SDHC card, not an SD card. The *ist DL works with SD cards, which top out at 2GB. Even though higher-capacity SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they will not work with this camera.

How to extend a 4 GB SD card to Some 8,16 GB SD


I know of no way to increase the capacity of storage media. You can either replace it with one of higher capacity, or, if you want to get more images on the card, shoot smaller pictures.

How do i insert the 8b memory card in the memory card reader? i've tried it several ways and it does not light up??? i need a visual


The Dynex 5-in-1 Reader may be too old to read high capacity secure digital cards. (HCSD)
An 8 GB SD card is definitely going to be high capacity. Only the relatively newer SD readers can read the HCSDs.

Try putting in a 2 GB or lower size SD card and see if it works. If it does, then your card reader doesn't support higher capacity cards.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa.

My Pavillion dv 1000 wont read a micro SD card (in adapter) My camera recognizes and uses the card fine (with adaptor). My laptop recognizes standard sized SD cards fine also. It is not a HC micro SD. ...


If its above 2 gb most older laptops won't because the card is in FAT and not FAT 32. cards 4 gb and over are written differently you can hook your camera up to your computer and transfer then that way or purchase a HCSD card reader for higher capacity cards.

I just bought a Vivitar ViviCam T027 camera. The manual says it will accept sd cards up to 32 gb. My question is, will this camera accept the newer sdhc cards, or only the standard sd cards?


Hi there

Funny, I recently bought the exact same model. The answer to your question is simple (that's the good news!)

A long time ago, when these small SD Cards first appeared, they were limited in capacity from 128 Megabytes (MB) to a maximum capacity of 2 Gigabytes (GB).

To enable the same size card to store a greater capacity, a new specification had to be created. This new spec. was SDHC, and allowed the cards to store from 4 GB up to 32 GB.

The confusion arises because people still refer to all these cards as 'SD cards' when the higher capacity cards should really be called 'SDHC' cards.

Your camera will accept standard SDHC cards. Just make sure you don't order 'mini' cards which are much smaller in dimension.

Hope this clears up the confusion.

What is the maximum SD size that will work with the DSC-4500Z camera?


The manufacturer of your camera specifies SD card compatibility without providing a specific number. This is not uncommon however, as the maximum size for SD cards is 2 GB. Cards that have a larger capacity than 2 GB in the "SD" format are "SDHC". Read the label of these cards (that have a larger capacity than 2 GB) that *look* identical to SD cards, and you'll see that they are in fact SDHC types. The SDHC card can have a capacity of up to 32 GB. A device that is compatible with the SDHC specification should be able to read any SDHC card *and* any SD card as well; because the standard requires "backward compatibility" to the older SD standard. A device that accepts SD cards should be able to read any SD card, *but* if an SDHC card be introduced to it, it may provide unreliable results (from being able to access only 2 GB of the capacity or not recognizing the card at all). Make sure your pictures are safe and don't get lost; use only SD cards in this camera.

I hope this helps!

It does not recognize an 8gb sd card in storage expansion.


Your netbook should read SDHC(over 2 GB capacity) memory cards. The problem might be either the card slot driver, Which you should download if a newer one is available. Or in case you format the SD as DOS then it will only have around 2GB of space, You should format it as DOS32 or NTFS so you get the full capacity for the SD card. Some pirated rather cheaper memory cards have a lower actual capacity. With some compression technique the capacity presented is higher than it actually is. If you format it then it will show the real capacity. hope that is not the case!

Good Luck!

Camera doesn't recognize the sd card, bypasses it


1) This camera accepts SD cards up to 4 GB in capacity. Most 4 GB SD cards however, are "SDHC" types (check the label to determine which type you are using). If you are using a 4 GB "SDHC" card, it may be causing the problem, as it is not an "SD" card. Furthermore, any card greater than 4 GB is not compatible with the camera. Any SD card with a capacity less than 4 GB should work without issue.

2) Check the position of the lock or "protect" tab on the side of a compatible SD card to be sure it is in the unlock position. The camera will be unable to write to a locked or protected card.
