SanDisk 2 GB SD shows out of space when 1.79 gig still available

When copying photos from my .mac laptop the card reads as full - no space available - when only 58 MB have been used. Someone suggested re-formatting to FAT 32 but I don't seem to have the reformatting option in Disk Utility.

Backup anything you want to keep on the sd card before you do this.The format option on disk utility is called erase. Select the name of the sd card in disk utility and click erase. Choose your format (if you want fat32, set it as ms-dos) then type in the name you want your sd card to be then press erase. Let the program do it's thing and when its done, you should see the sd card on your desktop again.

The first problem is explained by the error message. Your camera is consuming too much power to go through a USB hub. Try connecting it directly to a USB port on your computer, without going through a hub.

The second problem is most likely related to the card reader. You didn't specify the exact model of Belkin reader so I can't give you a definite answer, but it appears the reader is designed for SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it will not work with devices not specifically designed to work with SDHC cards.

To sum up: If you want to use a USB port, connect directly to it without going through a hub. If you want to use a card reader, make sure the reader is SDHC-compatible.
If you have additional questions, or some part of the above isn't clear, please feel free to respond to this post.

SDHC Card 4 GB SanDisk will not format. get


The Z740 uses SD cards, not SDHC cards. SDHC cards will physically fit into the card slot but are not compatible. It's a hardware incompatibility, not updatable in firmware. You'll have to stay with 2GB and smaller SD cards.

I would suggest the format option in the menu. i posted the manual it gives step by step getting to the format option. if it works on one but not the other even after formatting in problematic camera. I would suggest getting a different brand/size. There's a 1gig liimit, but i am currently using a panasonic 2 gig and it seems to be working at its stated size. Although i haven't filled it to see if any problems occurr.
Hope this helps.

Can't copy songs on to SD 2 gig Card in Sansa e250


the card shows up as a separate drive letter, remember that
when the card is in the player, look for the second drive letter in My Computer and add the songs to it not the first; yes the card will show up in your library on the player only after you have unplugged it and restarted the player.

Sandisk Sansa e130


I have a 1GB SD card in my E130 Sansa. I had fill it up to 998MB. The only problem is that I have to leave 3MB in the flash unit. I guess it need it for constructing the Music Library.
The Flash (512MB) and the SD card (1GB) are both in FAT32.
I guess that it may be a problem of the SD card itself and not a problem of the Sansa.
1) Have you tried to read the SD card with a card reader (without the Sansa)?
2) Have tried formatting the SD card (not a quick format, but a real one) in FAT32 (be careful about that).

HA90 MP3/WMA player


When I was looking at this product, I contacted the manufacturer and they made it clear the unit worked best with a 512 mb or smaller card. The problem is not with Sandisk or the SD manufacturer, it is with the HA90.
