Question about Cameras

1 Answer

When I put the memory card in the camera it says 'cannot read' it. How do I format the card? I know it has the right 'size' memory. The memory card I am using is the same one I used a few months ago and I saved the pictures I took to a computer and erased the pictures off the card. Now as soon as I turn the camera on it says 'This card cannot be read'. Im frustrated as there is nothing in the manual that seems to get my camera working again. I have only had it for a year. Please HELP!

Do not use the computer to erase the card. This is the reason your camera no longer recognizes the card. Now you need to format the card in the camera to get it to work properly.

My camera read "card Error" when i put one in


Probably the first thing to try is formatting the card. There is a function in the camera menus to do this. If it won't format or gives an error when you try, then there may be an issue with the connectors in the card slot or the card may be incompatible.

Maybe it is having trouble with the size of the memory. Memory cards have grown enormously in capacity in the last couple of years, and even relatively new cameras may not be able to cope with the memory size of the newest cards. It is often difficult to find out the maximum capacity a camera will use, as today's memory cards are much larger that those available when the manual for the camera was written.

SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but many cameras won't work with the SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

I wud like 2 format another memory card in my qv-r61 but wen i put the card in i can get nothing onscreen to set it up any ideas? it is a Fuji memory card and when put in the camera all i have got onscreen...


Hi, have you tried using your computer to format the memory card, what you need to do is put your memory card into a memory card reader then wait a minute then open up my computer then locate the memory card then right click on it with the right button on the mouse then choose format and format it to fat32 then try it in your camera and it should then be working.

if you have been using a memory card in the camera and still have it then put this in the memory card reader and go to my computer and then right click on the memory card and select properties and have a look at what format that memory card is, and if its anything other than fat32 write down what it is.
Then put the new memory card into your card reader and goto my computer then right click with the mouse then choose format and then choose to format it to the same type as the other memory card thay you know works in the camera, once you have done this the memory card should work in the camera with no problems.

until you have formatted the memory card to the correct type it wont be recognised by your camera so give it a try what i said and you should find you will have no more problems ok.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

I have a 4 GB memory card and I don't know how to format it, I put it in the camera and go through the instructions and it just keeps going back to the beginning, even tried a 2gb card with the same...


You can put the card in a memory card reader and connect it to your computer's usb port. Also, if you have a laptop that has a built in card reader, you can use that. Once the device was detected, right click your windows start button and choose Explore. Look for your memory card's drive, right click it and choose Format.

I uploaded my pictures from my memory card onto the computer. When I put the card back into my camera, the camera won't read the memory card and it says the internal memory is full (12 pictures). How do...


If you indeed have the pictures on your computer (and are safely stored)... you might try selecting the format memory card function in the camera, to reformat the card, in case it was somehow corrupted while connected to the computer.

Memory card


I'll write the same repost as another I just did, as it sounds like your problem is the same or similar. Hope it helps solve your problem as well even though it's a different camera and memory card type.


Kristina,

Not knowing what model Olympus camera you have, or how old it is - your new memory card "format" problem is one of 3 possibilities.

1st - If you have an older Olympus camera more then 4-5 years old the newer M & H series type cards over 256mb will probably not work in your older camera, as by the camera's internal firmware chip design of the camera itself. Some cameras were upgradeable some weren't as to the internal firmware chip as well as available software drivers depending on which computer OS system you were using ie: (WIN98SE, WIN2000, etc). Has to do with the memory card read/write chip speed as well, and also has to do with the physical storage size of the card itself. Some digital cameras were MAXED OUT at 512mb cards, some as low as 256mb. A 2gb card simple won't work in that/your camera in that case.

If you read the camera's user manual it will possibly tell you this, or else go online to www.olympusamerica.com and use this link:

View which cameras are compatible

Select camera model series and scroll down the model # and research the max card size & type you can use (3 basic XD card speed types available - regular XD - M type - H type).

If you are using the wrong type & size card you will need to return that card (if you can) and get the right XD size & type for your camera.

2nd - You should always FORMAT (same as ERASE ALL and FORMAT modes on most Olympus cameras) the new card, or any XD card for that matter in your camera itself. NOT THE HOME COMPUTER!!! The 2 format procedures are not the same!!

If you are re-shooting (re-using) the same XD card over and over again and then downloading the JPEG pix directly to the computer using a USB interface cable there usually is no need to re-format the card again as long as the XD card stays the camera and is not downloaded into a home computer via a "card reader". If you do the latter "card reader" then I would advise doing a card re-format in the camera again just to be safe!!

And lastly - If your home computer recognizes the XD card via a good "card reader" (do not FORMAT the XD card here btw, as you are just checking the card out to see it is GOOD is all), but the camera will not then that is a good sign your camera is OK, but it's just the wrong type & size XD card.

Hope this helps solve your camera XD problem not knowing which model you have.

Best regards,

Frank
