Any size SD card will work. The capacity limit is with the card, not the camera. All the camera does is serve as a recorder/reader for the card.

SOURCE: SD Card (2GB YES Make) Gives Formatting error

If you have a card reader or a printer with an SD card slot in it, try formatting the card or deleting all files on it using a PC. My laptop has a slot built-in I'm able to use. Check out your options. Try formatting it outside of your camera. I've heard of some card swapping between brands of cameras doing crazy stuff as you are experiencing.

SOURCE: How can you format a SD 4gb card for the Kodak

You can't. The Z612 uses SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) card and is incompatible with SD devices.

For SD cards (2GB and smaller), you'll find the Format operation in the Setup menu. Press the Menu button, then use up/down to select the wrench, then press OK.

SOURCE: bought a 4GB SD card for my easyshare z700 camera.

The Z700 works with SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card (the HC stands for High Capacity) and will not work in the Z700. You'll have to stay with SD cards 2GB and smaller.

I put in an SD card and it only records to the memory. How do I get it to record to the SD?

Hi Nancy,

I have a couple of generic suggestions. First, make sure the SD card lock tab is in the "unlock" position. When in the lock (or sometimes called "write protect") position, it will not accept data to be saved.

Secondly, check to make sure that the card is a type that is compatible with your camera. If you camera specs an SD card, install and SD card. If it requests and SDHC card, provide and SDHC, and so on. There have been several versions of cards that all LOOK the same: SDSC, SDHC & SDXC. The "SDSC" (Secure Digital Stand Capacity - at introduction was called simply "SD" as it was the only capacity) type has a capacity of 4GB or less. The first devices could not access areas memory in the 4GB + range. Next came the "SDHC" (High Capacity) card. These cards were originally set for 4GB capacity and greater. As the older SD devices faded away, the low end capacity of SDHC cards dropped from 4GB to 1GB or smaller. The SDXC card (eXtended Capacity) and SDIO (Input/Ouput) will supersede the SDHC types as time advances.

Lastly, do not use card types (or those with greater capacities) that do not appear in a compatibility chart for the camera (or any device for that matter). When trouble arises, use only recommended hardware (memory cards) as shown in manuals or online info.

Good luck!

My nintendo wont read my sd card

Check the system software version for your Wii console.The Wii must be updated to version 4.0 to read SDHC cards.Remove the SD or SDHC card you wish to use for memory and verify that it is the proper capacity. Insert your SD card in a computer to check the file format you wish to use with the Wii console.

Doesn't recognize SD Card (2 different Minox cameras). Tried 2 different 4GB cards, also tried formatting cards on computer (FAT32).

Minox DM 1 probably cannot use 'SDHC' cards, which have capacities of 4GB+ because it was introduced around 2005, when memory cards were designated 'SD' and had much lower capacity

The supplied card was only 128MB so you might start by trying one up to 1GB, or 2GB at most. Luckily SD cards have become relatively inexpensive!

Im using an optio s4 camera and just bought a 4GB SD card. But when I insert the SD card into the camera, there's only a black screen when I turn it on.:( But when I remove the SD card, the camera works...

The Optio S4 works with MMC and SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible. You need to go with cards 2GB and smaller.

Trying to install memory card did format and

Although you haven't stated the make, model and capacity of your memory card the information in your question suggests that you have used the wrong memory card.

The CD33 is compatible with SD memory cards but not with the later SDHC models (the HC means High Capacity). They'll fit into the camera just fine as they have the same shape as an SD card, but the CD33 chipset is incompatible at the basic hardware level and cannot format SDHC cards.

To complicate matters further, the original SD specification allowed up to a maximum 2GB, and this was later extended to 4GB but hardly any SD devices can use the 4GB cards without a firmware update. No firmware update was ever released to allow your camera to use 4GB SD cards. Your camera was also designed before 2GB SD cards were available so whilst it may be compatible in theory it was never tested with them.

I'd recommend that you stick to 1GB maximum SD cards unless you use a Kodak branded 2GB version: Kodak's website claims that your camera should work with their own brand card of that capacity, so if it doesn't you can claim on their warranty for a refund or maybe an exchange for two 1GB cards.

If all this is incorrect and you're using a regular SD card of no larger than 1GB then you either have a faulty card or a faulty camera. The only way to find out will be to try a new 1GB SD card from a major brand name. If the camera proves to be faulty then it's beyond economic repair as labour costs for diagnosing the fault alone will exceed the camera value.

I hope this reply has been of assistance and ask in return only that you rate my answer.

The camera accepts a memory card of 256 MB but rejects a new memory card of 4 GB, initially I thought it was a card problem so exchanged the card for a new one of the same capacity but still the same...

Your camera can only use standard SD cards up to 2GB capacity, and even then they must be formatted to FAT16 and not the usual FAT32 used on most pcs these days. Standard SD cards actually go up to 4GB and your camera would accept those with a suitable firmware update but Panasonic never released one and they certainly no longer support the FX8.

Most 4GB SD cards are actually SDHC cards, and your camera cannot handle these as it lacks the internal hardware to do so.

You'll need to stick to a standard SD card of 2GB maximum capacity: don't worry about the FAT16/FAT32 thing as your camera will correctly format the card when you first use it. Carrying 2 x 2GB cards is more reliable than carrying 1 x 4GB card anyway as you always have a spare if one of them fails.

I hope that you appreciate my answer and I ask in return only that you take a moment to rate my answer.

Wii sd card reader

i think that you must format the card. try that first and if it still doesn't work, maybe try a lower capacity card (though capacity shouldn't be the issue)
hopefully that helps
