Memory card unreadable?

I have a GE A730 that i recently bought with a 2GB Transcend sd card. it worked fine for about a day, but then it started locking up and had a weird pattern on the screen. And just today it said the memory card is unreadable. Any one else have this problem? Any ideas for a fix? It does work without the card in.

It is the card. Exchange the card at the store.

I cannot insert my Transcend SD 2 GB memory card in the camera. Is there only 1 type of memory card that can be inserted?

Make sure there's nothing in the slot, and you've got the card oriented properly. The i1237 works with SD and SDHC cards. The Transcend 2GB SD card should work fine.

Write protect error comes out after switching on the camera, What will I do? My Unit is GE A730. It occurs after I bought a new SD memory. I have used that alrady on my camera but I dont why after few days...

SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.
If that doesn't work, try a different card.

My smaller memory cards work, but my 4gb card says media error in my brother printer/scanner when I put it into the usb port (photo capture). Tried it dozens of time, doesn't work, but I was able to read...

Many older system will only support standard SD cards up to 2GB and HD SD cards will go above 2GB. It is a limitation of the printer and not an error with the card.

Problems with formatting memory card

I'm guessing you're trying to format a new 4GB SDHC card? If so, am sorry to say that your camera was designed before the SDHC format came out. Although it looks exactly the same as a standard SD card, the format the card uses is very different.

You'll need to instead purchase a standard SD card (those that are 2GB or less). Forunately these are very inexpensive these days, with 2GB cards going for around $6 with shipping.

But if you must use 4GB, Transcend makes a 4GB standard SD card, but I can't guarantee that it will work with your camera as anything above 2GB for standard SD may have compliance issues.

SD cards

Do the 4GB Cards say SDHC on them? They should. SDHC is simply "Secure Digital High Capacity". They're high capacity SD cards that hold more than regular cards. In this case, 4GB. The problem with these is that they need to be supported by the device. I've never put an SDHC card into a device that doesn't support them, but it looks like that's what your situation is. The highest memory capacity a non-SDHC compliant device is capable of 2GB. I recommend that you return the 4GB cards and buy 2GB cards instead.

Transcend Media Card

If you have another SD card reader you may want to try that - maybe the one in your printer cant see 2gb cards properly

And just to get it out of the way - Are you sure the card is plugged in the right side up? I have accidentally plugged in SD cards upside down...

hope this helps.
