Do you mean, it won't stay in place?
when you insert the card correct, it will lock in the correct position. When you want to remove the card, you have to push on the card till it says click and then release the card, it will come out because a spring is driving it.
If you managed to pull out the card, perhaps you damaged the locking system and you have a problem. Also chai if you did not try to put it in, the wrong way around. All efforts to put in a memory card other than the correct way, can end in a damaged card holder.

My Dad, 91years old, received a Kodak Easyshare model z1285 from a friend for christmas. no manual. He lives 400 miles away and called to ask if I knew where the SD card goes. Since I can't see the camera...


The door to access the SD card slot is on end of the camera which is closest to the round knob on the top of the camera.

If you turn the camera on end and look at the door, it has small groove in it that is about an inch long. Holding your camera in your left hand with the lens toward your palm, take your finger nail of your right fore finger and slide the door toward the back of the camera.

The door will swing open, revealing the slot for the SD card. When you get the camera, there may be a "dummy" plastic SD card in the slot. Release it by gently pressing the edge of the SD card and quickly releasing it. The card should pop up about a half inch and you can grab it with your fingers and pull it out.

Replace it with a fresh SD card, making certain that it is oriented with the label facing the back of the camera and the contacts facing the front of the camera. Gently push it into the slot until it seats. Don't force it. The card should go in with a little resistance, but does not require a lot of force to seat. Pressing it too hard will cause it to pop back out again.

If it doesn't seat properly, the card may be flipped the wrong way. The card should go into the slot contacts edge first, contacts facing the front of the camera and the label facing the back of the camera.

I hope this helps,

What memory card do I buy for my Kodak easyshare C530 camera.l The one I purchased was a SD card and it would not allow me to format.


http://www.kodak.com/eknec/PageQuerier.jhtml?pq-path=7551/7269&pq-locale=en_US&expression=sd

The above link goes to a site that describes how SD or SDHC cards can be used in newer C cameras such as yours.

Also, the following should be noted regarding sd cards:

Question : Why doesn't my camera recognize the SECURE DIGITAL (SD) or MultiMedia (MMC) memory card that is in the camera? Answer : Your camera may not recognize the memory card inside for one of the following reasons:
  • The card is not fully inserted in the camera. Turn off the camera, insert a card into the slot, then push to seat it.
  • The card may be corrupted. Reformat the memory card.
    CAUTION: Formatting deletes all pictures and videos, including those that are protected. Removing a card during formatting may damage the card.
  • The card may not be a certified SD or MMC card. Purchase a certified SD or MMC memory card.
See your camera's user manuals for more information. Go to KODAK Product Manuals, and select the manuals you need.

The SD card might not be faulty, try another card, since the camera could give you a message like the one you're experiencing.
Try with a different SD card that is supported by the camera.
    After you having successfully switched over to saving onto the SD card. I would guess that you would like to transferre the pictures from your internal memory over to the SD card.:

    Out of memory on Nikon Coolpix L18 camera


    I noticed that, after dumping the full SD card onto my computer, I didn't seat it perfectly back in the camera (my finger bottomed out on the batteries before the memory card 'clicked' into place. With the camera unable to see the SD card, it defaulted to the internal memory, which is very small.

    I got the SD card seated fully and the "Out of Memory" message went away.

    Coolpix l5 - SD card won't seat


    The Nikon are very good about placing a sd symbol on the door of the memory compartment. The trick is to align the dog ear side of the memory stick with the picture on the door the push down until the stick bottoms out in the slot it should then lock in to place. Conversely to remove it push down again until it un locks.

    Cannot insert the memory card - push in, won't seat, springy feel


    Make sure that you insert the SD card in the correct orientation. If not, it will not lock into place. The SD card is push in to insert and push again to eject.

    There is a small diagram showing the correct way to insert the card just below the left hand side of the slot.
