May be you need to try the same card in an other camera.

Check if it functions properly.

If not read then check if the memory card is unlocked. Also connect the memory card to your system system and do a complete format and check if it works.

Check if any other card is being read by your camera.

Check if the card is being read.

If the camera does not read the new card as well then try cleaning the memory card slot for which I would recommend you to use a service manual of the camera you are using else I would request you to contact manufacturer for technical support.

SOURCE: CAMERA READS -CARD ERROR-AFTER INSERTING A NEW MEMORY CARD

First, make sure that the new memory card does not have the protect tab in the lock position. The new card must be unlocked and formatted before your camera will be able to use it. Also, make sure that the size card that you have purchased has not over shot the ability of your camera. I think that a 2 GB card is as large as you can use. Just because the card fits into the slot does not mean that the camera will address it!

SOURCE: Reads card error or turns off once i insert memory card

Hello

OK, if the memory card itself is locked, you might sometimes get this error code. All you need to do is to take out the memory card and switch the lever on the left side to the unlock.

If the error is still displayed after you did the above, you might want to try the card in another camera.

If the card works in another camera . the problem is with your card reader in your camera.

If you open you sd slot and look inside with a sharp light , you should be able to see on the left side of the slot there is a little copper or spring steel lever switch. This switch work as follows:

1. When no card is inserted / no write protection , the switch is open and thus the protection is off.
2. When locked card is inserted , the tab is depressed and tells the camera that the card is lock.

Contrary to popular belief ,the little tab on the sd card is not an electronic switch and does not physically influence the card operation itself. If you put a locked card into a camera without a sd lock switch , you would still be able to use the card normally.

It is incredible difficult to fix this switch because of space limitations in the sd card. Look into the sd slot and if you can see the switch , use a needle to pull the little tab down toward the base of the camera by about 2mm or until it works being careful not to bend it.

If this does not resolve your problem , there might be a short in the switch circuit and the camera will need to be disassembled to resolve this error. This should cost no more than $50.

Please feel free to contact me if you need further information

Kind regards
Andrea

It displays a card error message when i insert an sd card.help please.


You have to check out that if your camera support your SD card(type, capacity size ) or if there is real something wrong with the card. Using a card reader insert to PC and see if the card can be read, if it's OK, formatting it by PC then insert it back to camera and see if the problem can be solved. Else, If the card can't be read by PC you only have to change it.

This camera reads "card error" and won't format a


yes. you can try to insert the sd card to a computer using any all-in-1 memory card reader. then if windows detects it, right click the card's drive in windows explorer then select format. choose FAT as file system type. before you put it back to your camera clean the card's contact points, insert the card and if the camera detects the card format it again using the camera's format tool.

I would first try reading the card by inserting it in a PC connected card reader to see if it will recognize the card. If you can read the card via the PC, back off the pictures. Once you back them off, attempt to reformat the card. If you can reformat the card you should be able to use it again in the camera. Insert the card into the camera and check to make sure the card can be recognized and to check the camera does not have a problem reading the card. If it cannot be read, you will have to have the camera serviced. It should still be under some warrantee.
If the card cannot be read by either the PC or the camera, the card has been damaged and needs to be replaced.

What does read error mean and how to correct it?And get the pictures it seems to have misplaced.


Rhonda, You should remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into the card reader of the PC and move all pics to the PC. Then insert the card back into the camera and format it with the camera. Then whatever pics you take will be saved to the camera and be read by it too. Now for some reason the camera can not read the card. And if you want to use it then the camera should be able to read it. To do that you must first move the pics to some other place and once the pics are safe then the card can be forgotten.

"Memory card cannot be read"


My camera used to do the same thing--once I got the pictures off my card, I left it in the card reader, right clicked on removable media (my computer + removable storage) chose to "format" and formatted it on my computer. It seems to have fixed the problem, and my camera now reads it fine. I tried to format it on the camera before, but it didnt work.
