SOURCE: Display reads "No Card"

Zoom h4 supports cards up to 2GB. And, I'm almost sure, this is a thing that can't be upgraded through software.

You need to upgrade the H4  firmware from Zoom website

You will need an external SD card reader.
Good Luck

SOURCE: My zoom stop recording after one hour with plenty

Which firmware do you have? It should say on the screen when you turn it on. If it 1.10, or 1.0, you need to update the firmware by going to the Zoom support page:
http://www.zoom.co.jp/english/download/software/h4.php
Directions and firmware download is all there.
If you are already on 2.0 or 2.4, then try reformatting the card with the Zoom. This will delete anything on the card, so backup first!! Good luck.

My Zoom H2 recorder is not recognized by my new computer with Windows 7. What can I do to solve this?


No solution, just a workaround. I have used the H2 with firmware 1.90 successfully with Windows 7, but lately the H2 is not recognized anymore. Built-in obsolescence maybe?
Anyway, I just take out the card and put it in a card reader. It is faster also. Card readers are cheap.

Zoom H4 recorder ver 1.30 says no card although card is inserted?


Hi. Not sure you still are in need of a solution but since my machine was doing the same thing last night, and I was able to solve it, I thought I'd post anyway.
For my machine, which has a more current OS than yours (mine is 2.20 I believe), I was receiving the same message after transferring material onto the computer. What needed to happen was to reformat the card. If you press "menu", the click on "file" you should have an option to reformat the card. It worked for me and it now works.
Hope that helps!

I have a sony a100. It says unable to use card


What card do you use on the A100? And what capacity? Are you sure you have inserted it in the correct way? Be careful while inserting a CF card because of you insert it wrongly, it can damage the camera. Zooming is done using the zoom ring on the lens barrel. Just twist the zoom ring. Hope you are using the 18-70mm kit lens with the camera.
