Re: New memory card will not work

This camera is actually really compatible with the 2gb sd card, anything higher will give you that message. since you have the right kind but still won't work - 2 possibilities:

camera memory ready issue > repair necessary
defective card> try another one

I have a Kodak easy share z740 and it won't let me

What type and size memory card?
The Z740 works with MMC and SD cards, 2GB or smaller. I suspect you're trying to use an SDHC card, 4GB or larger.

When insert maxell maxdata 4 gb memory card camera says card read error

The A402 works with MMC and SD cards. Your 4GB card is an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it's electronically incompatible and won't work with the camera. You need to use an SD card, 2GB or smaller.

I can not put memory card inside the camera, this card is ritzpix 2GB. Can u please tell me what can be the problem?thank you

Your problem is that you are not using a suitable memory card for the D90. 2Gb SD cards have read/write speeds that are much too slow to work with quality DSLR's. Let me explain. When you take a picture with the D90, the data generated first goes into a small capacity buffer memory. The purpose of the buffer is to act as a conduit to your SD memory card and retain picture data until all of the data is safely written to the SD card. If your SD card can accept data as quickly as the buffer can pass it to the SD card, there is no problem. But, If the SD card is not capable of accepting the data quickly enough, the buffer will start to fill up since data is coming in faster than it is going out. If you take pictures in quick succession with a slow SD card or if you shoot video with a slow SD card, the buffer will overflow; i.e., fill to its capacity and become incapable of accepting more data until its capacity returns as the SD card accepts the data. During that time, the camera will prevent you from taking any more still photographs. You will push the shutter release and nothing will happen. If you are shooting video, the camera will continue to work, but the sound will loose sync with the picture.

For your D90 to function properly under all conditions, you must have an SDHC card that is rated at 45Mbs or faster. When I first bought my D90 several years back, 35Mbs was the fastest card made and I had the problems I described to you above. When Sandisk brought out the Sandisk Pro card with a 45Mbs speed my problems melted away. I should also ad that 2Gb is much too low of a capacity for the D90. It will fill up very quickly if you shoot Raw or fine quality jpeg files. You need a minimum of 8Gb.

Brand new sd card has been placed inside the camera, its still saying that the card is full when nothing is on it.

The internal memory of the camera must have been used, remove the SD card and go to menu, locate "format" and follow the prompt to erase all pictures, when this is completed you can install the memory card back in the digital camera and you should be good to go.

Hi, got new kodak camera and 4gb memory sd inside. i only took 8 pictures so far and said internal memory full. i dont understand why? i want to keep 8 pictures and it should be plenty as using 4gb and...

4GB "SD" cards are almost always actually SDHC (high capacity) cards. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but they are slightly different electrically. Many cameras won't work with SDHC cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

So your camera is not able to use the 4GB card, and is ignoring it and using internal memory only. That memory is tiny and won't hold many pictures, and when it is full, the camera cannot work at all. You need to delete the pics in the internal memory and get a memory card your camera can understand (2GB or less).

Memory card says full when i put new sd 2gb card in card won't work on my kodak easyshare cw330 camera

I was checking to see if your camera had a limit to the size of SD memory card and couldn't find a thing so what I suspect is that the SD card lock has been engaged here is a diagram to show you how to unlock it.
Also any new memory card needs to be formatted in the camera before the camera can "read" it.
After pictures have been loaded to the memory card and then downloaded to the computer the memory card needs to be formatted to clean the old pictures off and make the memory card ready to accept new pictures.

Display reads "images recorded in internal memory" but there are none and I can't take more than 4 pictures until the camera says the memory is full. Also the memory card says it is full after 7 pictures,...

hi, the memory card you are using is to small for the camera it has not got enough memory on it you need to get at least a 1gb memory card or 2gb memory this will then allow you to take between 500 and 1000 pictures the 16mb card you have in is not worth using it will only hold a couple of pictures so go to the well known auction site and buy a 2gb memory card of the same type such as sd card or micro sd or mini sd it should tell you on the 16mb card what type it is then just buy the same type but with either 1gb or 2gb or even 4gb of memory this will then let you take 1000s of pictures

the 16mb card is no good in your camera get a bigger card and your problem will be solved

let me know if you have any problems with the new card ok

I just brought a new memory card 8gbsan disk ultra and it is saying memory card error

The A520 is designed to work with SD cards. Your 8GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the camera it will not work. You need to stay with SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

2GB SD card is brand new but camera says it is full.

Some of the older cameras will not take the bigger cards. You can use the bigger card with your computer to store your photos.
