When your camera was made for SD cards (you did not help us here by entering a brand and model) it could be it won't accept the newer SDHC cards or the SDXC cards.
The SD cards were made up to 4 GB, but now even the 1 GB cards already are SDHC, because they are faster.
Again, when a device is made for SD cards and it did not get an software update, you most likely can't use SDHC cards and certainly no SDXC cards (above 32 GB)
And every card you put in your camera, first format the card in the camera, before using it.

This error message means that the card is corrupted or formatted for another digital camera. Turn off the camera. Insert a new card or format the card.
Try to format the memmory card using a card reader and the PC this should solve your problem if not you have to replace the memmory card.

I just bought a new memory card (8gb) for my digital camera (Samsung NV10) and when I inserted the memory card, I kept getting "Card Error". It said I should format the new memory card and I tried to...


The largest SD card you can use in your Samsung NV10 is 2GB. thats why once you insert the 8GB sd card its shows card error or need to fromat.

FYI. for every digital camera there's a compatible memory card and you can see from the box or manual and Its writen SD or SDHC.

goodlukc and thank you

Memory Card Error? Just removed a memory card and inserted a new one -and Memory Card Error comes up and I can't take photos. Thanks!


Is it a new 4GB memory card? If so that might be your problem. The card would likely be an SDHC card, and your camera may have been designed before the SDHC format came out. Your camera may only be able to use standard SD cards (2GB or less).

But if the card is less than 2GB, it could have become corrupted. In this case you could try formatting the card in the camera to see if this would rejuvenate it. This will also erase the card. See this post if you wish to first recover those pictures.

Finally, if this is occurring with multiple cards, and is also saying "card locked" even though the tiny slide switch is in the unlocked position, then see this post for a possible remedy.

I bought a new memory card and when i insert it I get the message: memory card error. how do i correct this? thanks


Some cameras will not support the later versions of the SD v2.0 released after June 2006 (secure digital mutilmedia card) memory cards that are on the market/

First check the size of the card in (MegaBytes) some older cameras will not even read a SD v1.x 2MB card but will read the smaller 1MB size.

Check for compatibilty with SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity, SD 2.0) on your camera even though it will fit as it has the same form factor (footprint) as the SD v1.x the camera is not set up to read it and will throw and error.

I suggest that after you have checked all this try and get your money back.

Memory card not reading in canon a75


So as not to spoil your vacation, go buy yourself a new compact flash card locally. They should sell them anywhere electronics are sold, including WalMart, etc. See if you can get this new card to work in your camera. If so, then you can work on trying to get your current CF to work, by trying to format it in the camera. If you can't get a new CF to work in the camera, then you likely damaged either the pins in the CF socket in the camera, or some switch that is pushed when the card is inserted (to tell the camera there is a card in it). It is unlikely you will be able to have this fixed during your vacation, unfortunately.

No memory card error on canon powershot a400
