That is correct. The camera was designed to work with MMC and SD cards, 2GB or smaller. It will not work with higher-capacity SDHC cards.

Try to clean the contacts of the memory cards and, mostly, of the memory card bay of the camera. Use a dry anti-static fabric (e.g. what we use to clean eye-glasses). DON'T use any liquid cleaner of anything like that!

the 4800 is a older model that won't support a sdhc card-go back to 2gb or smaller and problem solved-don't waste money on high speed cards for a basic point and shoot camera

The 5900 uses SD cards. The 4GB card you have is actually an SDHC card and will not work in the 5900. You'll have to stay with cards 2GB and smaller.

Hi,

A 4 gb memory card is beyond the capacity of your Cannon A540. It is too large. I would stick with a 1 gb card in that camera.

Coolpix p1 formatting problem on new memory disk.


There are 3 options, which come up to my mind :

1) Compatibility
The camera is containing a controller, able to communicate with a inserted memory-card. In some cases the size of the memory-card is not supported by this controller.

2) Protective mode
There's a small slide at the edge of this card. Maybe the slide is set to protect the contents of the memory card.
3) Pin-connections
Sometimes, you don't take care enough about the way you insert a memory card into the camera. Everything goes quick... If you inserted the card wrong, the pins at the menory card wont touch the internal pins in the socket of the camera.

4) Fake memory
There are some fake memory cards sold. This means, inside the card is a FLASH-memory chip and a tiny controller-chip. Some Chinese see it as a sport, to use for i.e. a 4 GB memory-card, replacing the outside cover with a text that states 32 GB. And likewise, they have to re-program the controller-chip, to think it has 32 GB FLASH-memory onboard. So, if you insert this card into a PC with Windows, Windows will show this card is 32 GB, while it is actually 4 GB. There are programs to test memory-cards for this type of fraud. However, most of the time, you can figure it out yourself, by checking the price you paid for this memory-card. If the price for this new card was extremely interesting (read : low priced), you probably burned your fingers.

5) Defective memory
The manufacturing process of memory-chips has it flaws. Luckily they use tests to check batches. If there's some malfunctioned detected, they throw it away. Unluckily, there are workers at those factories, who take these (partly) malfunctioning memory-cards back home and sell them at internet. Dealers just think about earning a quick buck and buyers face the results.

It says memory card error.i took out the sd card and it was not locked and it still says memory card locked. i formated the card also and it still says the same thing.


How big is its capacity ? Some device can only support memory card at certain maximum capacity, if you inserted card with higher capacity it wouldn't able to read it and it would say "card error".
Try to insert another card with lower capacity. i.e. if you have got "card error" notification for inserting 4 Gb memory card, try to insert 2 Gb card

Hope this help, and if you think its helpful RATE please.

When pictures are taken they are being stored on the camera. They do not go to the SD card.


You need to get rid of the pictures in the internal memory. If you want to save any of them, go into the menu and find "copy". You will find the option to copy them to a memory card. Then, with no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"....follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Then your card should work properly.

My camera is saying the memory is full - with every card I put in the camera.


My camera was doing the same thing. I kept trying 4 gb cards, finally read the specs said only 2 gb supported. I put a 2 gb card in the camera and it worked fine.

Im trying to use the memory card but the camera says its full... I deleted everything and used a brand new card but it says the same thing. I even tryed formatting the camera..


Is it telling you the the card specifically is full or just full. Some cameras need to be switched from onboard memory to memory card. Also, if you are using a high capacity memory card make sure your camera can take a hgih memory card. If you put a 2 or 4 gb card in and it says full that means your camera can't use those cards.
