I bought 2 16gb sdhc cards and cant format them in

I bought 2 16gb sdhc cards thru EBAY and cant format them in my casio camera. I updated my camera firmware from the casio website which is supposed to allow cards larger than 8 gb to be used. I notice the cards are formatted in raw format when I check their properties. I also tried the panasonic sd formatting software and it didnt work. Any suggestions?

You can try to format them on your computer if you have sd drive. Otherwise I would suggest returning those ones and get something different. Sandisk is a good brand.

When i insert my memory card into my brand new CASIO EX-55O/0 camera,a message comes up and says "card error"


There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". The most common is trying to use a 4GB or higher SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out (of which your camera was made before SDHC. You can only use 2GB or less cards). Other causes include problems with the tiny slide switch on the side of the card, or the electrical contact switch internal to the camera. The problem may also arise from simple formatting problems if the card has never been formatted in the camera (note that this will also erase the card). Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link.

My screen says CARD NOT INITIALIZED. I cant get the camera to work.


Well, the error literally tells you to format the card. The format function should be in your settings menu. Before you do this, make sure that you've copied all you want off the card and then use the camera's 'format' function to reformat the card. I advise using the camera for the format function because this guarantees the correct file system. If you use your computer to format it, you may easily get the wrong one. However if you need to do it this way, see which file system is currently in use on the drive before you start. Go to "My Computer" and right click on the drive which is the memory card, and choose "Properties". Examples of filesystems are "FAT" (probably FAT16), "FAT32" and NTFS; to make sure your reformat is successful, ensure you use the same filesystem as before.

If this fails, the other possibility is that you've bought an SDHC card and fitted it to a camera that can only accept SD. In this case
you bought a larger card for your older camera, not noticing that it was SDHC (or not knowing that it mattered). The new card doesn't work, not because it or the camera is broken, but because it's not compatible.

Cards up to 2Gb are generally SD.
Cards of 4Gb are generally SDHC.
Cards over 8Gb have to be SDHC.

(There are exceptions. Sometimes, manufacturers make 4Gb SDHC cards but some have errors; they disable half of the chip and sell it as 2Gb, but it's still SDHC. 4Gb cards are almost always SDHC because they're cheaper, but 4Gb SD cards do exist. They are so rare that I've even seen a guru on this site claim they don't. I did own one once, but it was very expensive and turned out to be so unreliable that I had to return it. I don't recommend looking for one, because of the problems.)

Your solution is to go find a 2Gb card, and be extra sure that it doesn't say "SDHC" on it.

Okay we have a problem, to properly answer this question "we" collectively need to know what make and model the camera is. However one clue to your problem was that you said SDHC and 4gb.

I'm going to give you a diagram on the SD card type lock make sure it's in the correct position (not locked) Also the SDHC is a newer style memory card and 4 gig is a ton of memory for point and shoot cameras.

If the card lock thing doesn't work and you still can't format then I'm going to say that your camera can't handle the memory capacity of the 4gig SDHC memory card.

Don't panic yet, you may be able to go onto the camera manufactorers web site sift through the models and find the firmware updates for your camera. Updating to new firmware editions could open the possibilities of using a larger card.
Here is the diagram hope this is all that is needed.

You didn't tell us the model of your camera so it's difficult to say whether or not your camera will accept such a large card. I can tell you this, however, ....never format a card on a computer if you intend to use it in a camera. It puts the wrong operating system on the card. Always format in the camera. Try that and see if the card works.

Will an SDHC card work in the HP photosmart R927?


No, it won't work unless HP provides a firmware update. Hp has two websites that mention what type of sd cards are compatible with your camera. One says it is and the other says it isn't. I have a HP R967, which is similar to yours. I bought an HP sdhc card from a HP website that said both our cameras could use it. I own several of this model camera, (I bought 3 to give as gifts) and the sdhc causes the cameras to display 'wrong format.' I suggest calling HP's headquarters and asking them to provide a firmware update similar to the one that HP offered for the HP M537 camera and that Casio offered for their older cameras to let them use this type card, which is what I've been doing.

SDHC card won't work


Your card is an SDHC, your camera supports only SD/MMC cards. I know this because i found thisp ostlooking for a way to make it accept SDHC cards, a software update could easily work in theory but someone would have to write that update. Technology changes fast doesnt it.
