Re: card error

Try to examine the card on a computer (e.g. with a card reader). are there any pictures on the card? if not, try formatting the card (see olympus manual for a how-to).

I bought a brand new CF Card for the Olympus E-10 , and I put it in the slot, its reads card error?

Hey Joseph, the solution depends on one of a couple of things...

How large is the compact flash (i.e., is it 1GB or 12GB...) and is it a type I, II or one of the newest ultra type III.

Given those two criteria, if the card is 2GB or smaller you may have to format the card to FAT (not FAT 32). Some of these cards can be done simply by going into "my Computer", selecting your CF and right clicking your options, obviously choosing format. Select to format it as FAT and then UNcheck the "quick" option. Just let the computer take its time and format the card.

This SHOULD allow the card to be read by the camera. If not, then there could be a conflict with the actual size of the card or a formatting option that has to usurped by a software fix (I don't have the answer to that one yet, but soon will be there).

Lastly and more obnoxiously, there could be the case of a bad CF. It does happen. I had bought another CF myself in hopes of my same issue being a manufacturer's bug, but I still have the same problem.

If I get this figured out, I'll re-post with my results and see if it helps you out. Otherwise, I figure you solved your prob.

Best of luck...

Is this camera compatible with a sandisk sd card?

Although most digital cameras will accept the correct version SanDisk card, without the make and model of your camera no one can give you an absolute correct answer. SanDisk, in my opinion, is the best memory card maker in the business. I use SanDisk SDHC crds and SanDisk Compact Flash cards in my cameras. I usually use at least the Ultra II models for the DSLRs.

My images will not download to computer from Nikon coolpix 5700

If you are using the camera and a USB cord to download, try using a separate card reader instead. 40d3bea.jpg

When I inserted the new memory card (SanDisk Ultra II, 4GB) into my Canon PowerShot A620, it tells me "Memory Card Error". This is a brand new card. What do I do? It had been working just fine with a...

Some cameras cannot handle over 2GB memory cards. If it works fine with 2GB card - stick to that. If some other A620 you know operates with 4GB card, take yours to repairs.

Sony Alpha 100 gives error message when attempting to take pic.

Hi! I just had the same problem with my Sony A100, when I tried two different CF cards. I was getting the same error message as reported above: "Unable to use card" then "Format?" then that format fails. Thinking the camera is broken, I checked online camera repair sites and also called Sony directly. Sony's flat rate, and that of PrecisionCamera is $228 to fix CF card failure. Then my daughter said, "the CF card in my room works fine in the camera" - and lo and behold - it does. The CF card that works is brand PQI and is marked Hi-Speed 60 2Gb. The cards that do NOT work are marked SanDisk Ultra II 1.0Gb and SanDisk 128 Mb. So my advice is, before you give up on the camera as broken, try a number of different CF cards first.

The second cause of CF failure is if someone has pushed a CF card in the wrong way. That can bend one or more of the tiny metal contact pins in the CF socket in the camera. Look carefully to see that all the pins are straight up. [I don't know how one can straighten these pins, or if the whole socket would need to be replaced...but at least you can determine the cause of the CF failure.]

Best regards - Michael

My Nikon Coolpix 2100 Lexar starter memory card has become unreadable

It sounds like your Dazzle is not compatible with the sandisk. Maybe the Sandisk CF UltraII card have a new update software in it.

CF card problem

A slightly similar experience in that a Memory Stick Duo inexplicably set itself to write protect. No matter what I did, I couldn't format it. I was forced to buy another card. If possible, test it with another card or two. If it happens with more than two or three cards, then I would suspect the camera.
