Re: samsung s630

About the memory cards to be used with this camera, those could be:
- MMC / SD card (Up to 2GB Guaranteed)
- SDHC card (Up to 4GB Guaranteed)

Some cards are not compatible according to the memory card
manufacturer and memory card type.

If that is the case, i'll be advising you to try 1 GB so it will work.

But if it still does the same thing with the 1 GB card or with whatever cards you're using, you could still take more pictures even without a memory card. It's just that you need to adjust the picture size and quality to the lowest resolution to have more pictures taken.

To change the size:

Rotate the mode dial to PROGRAM:
- Press +/- button (2nd button)
- Go down to where you're see 6M, 5M, ... 1M
- Select 1M for the lowest size
- Press MENU/OK to save changes

To change the quality:

Rotate the mode dial to PROGRAM:
- Press +/- button (2nd button)
- Go down to where you're see Dots corresponding to NORMAL, FINE and SUPER FINE
- Select NORMAL for the lowest quality
- Press MENU/OK to save changes

To turn off camera after the settings
have been changed to refresh the camera.

If it still does not work, you need to contact the Manufacturer.

I hope this help you a lot.

Memory card

You may use any MMC or SD card, 2GB or smaller. MMC cards are nearly extinct to an SD card will be easier to find. You don't have to worry about the brand or speed, though personally I'd go with the major brands.
Make sure you get an SD card, 2GB or smaller. The S600 will not work with higher-capacity SDHC cards.

What kind of memory card do I use

You may use any SD card up to 2GB in size (4GB if you can find any). Make sure you get an SD card and not an SDHC card, as the latter are electronically incompatible and will not work. The brand and speed won't make much difference, though a faster card may download faster to your computer if you use a compatible card reader. I'd also stick with the major brands, such as SanDisk, PNY, and Lexar.

Will a 4gb sd memory card work on a s630?

Yes and no. According to the manual the S630 will work with SD cards up to 2GB in size and with 4GB SDHC cards. If the cards at the store are actually SDHC cards (most likely since 4GB SD cards are very rare) then they should work fine.

I've tried formatting a new san disk 4gb card and still reads "unable to use card" what do i do?

You haven't told us what kind of camera it is, but I can guess at the problem. There are two possibilities.

1. Your camera will only read SD cards, not SDHC cards. You've just bought a new memory card, not noticing that it was SDHC. The new cards don't work in your camera, not because they or the camera are broken, but because they're not compatible.

Cards up to 2Gb are generally SD. Cards over 8Gb have to be SDHC. 4Gb cards can be either SD or SDHC, but are almost always SDHC because they're cheaper. (I would avoid the rare, expensive, and problematic 4Gb SD cards.)

Your solution is to go find a 2Gb card, and be extra sure that it doesn't say "SDHC" on it. (If it does, it probably means that they made a 4Gb card, but there were some error locations and so they disabled half of it and packaged it as a cheap-brand 2Gb.)

2. You formatted the card NTFS, whereas the camera needs FAT32. You can format the card using Windows, but there is a complication: Windows defaults to "NTFS" when formatting, but memory cards normally use FAT32. Before you attempted this, you should have connect the card, and checked the 'properties' on the drive that appears. It probably said "FAT32". In this case, you could have gone ahead and formatted the card, but be sure that you chose "FAT32" from the drop-down list. If you format it NTFS, your camera won't be able to read it!

In this case your solution would be to format the card again, but using the FAT32 format.

You might find it useful to check your camera on dpreview (dot) com, and see if the memory card type is shown as just SD or SD/SDHC.

Just put in new san disk 4gb memory card and receiving error message - memory card error. I unlocked memory on card itself (that little gray sliver that goes up and down) What gives

I'm guessing you bought a new 4GB SDHC card. Although it looks exactly the same as a standard SD card, the format the card uses is very different. Unfortunately your camera was designed before the SDHC format came out. Sorry, but a SDHC card will not work with your camera.

You'll need to use standard SD cards (usually those 2GB or less). But if you really want to use a 4GB card, do a Google search for 4GB SD "non HC", with the non HC in quotes. Believe Transcend makes one.

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.
