Question about Polaroid izone 550W Digital Camera

1 Answer

Izone 550 senses SD card, but won't accomodate or write to it...

Hi Experts,
I have 2 izone 550s, bought at the same time. one reads a 1 GB SD card no prob, as evidenced by when powered up w/the SD card inserted, it adds ~370 available photos. The problem camera also recognizes the exact same card (shows the hollow outline frame of an SD card, as does the other camera), HOWEVER, does NOT add available photo capacity. So even tho it has the card installed (in fact, shows the icon for the card), it does not add that capacity, and immiedately goes to "Memory Full", even tho there is a large SD card it *could* write to. I've read the manual, and gone thru all the firmware settings, the 2 cameras settings are identical.

Re: izone 550 senses SD card, but won't accomodate or...

I would suggest the format option in the menu. i posted the manual it gives step by step getting to the format option. if it works on one but not the other even after formatting in problematic camera. I would suggest getting a different brand/size. There's a 1gig liimit, but i am currently using a panasonic 2 gig and it seems to be working at its stated size. Although i haven't filled it to see if any problems occurr.
Hope this helps.

Why won't my camera won't read the sd card I'm using?

8 gB is SDHC. Try less than 4 gB maybe even 256 mB to see if it will read those cards. But lately, all stores only sell HC cards. Try ebay, and they may charge an arm and a leg for old cards?

Hi - I have a Pentax S6 with a 1 GM SIM card. I just bought a 4 GB SIM card and am getting a memory card error message. The camera doesn't work with the 4 GB SIM card. What's wrong? What should...

The S6 works with SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card and will not work with your camera. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

SanDisk SDHC Card 4 GB i bought already. When i insert / fit into the camera , i start the camera after installation of the card properly. It is showing on the screen that memory card error . Nothing...

Sorry. The 550 works with MMC and SD cards. While SDHC cards fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work in this camera. You need to go with MMC or SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

I have a Polaroid i1032 10.0 megapixel camera. the user guide says that i can use up to a 1 gb SD memory card. I've used a 2 gb SD card and it works fine. My question is can I use SDHC cards 2 gb, 4 gb, 8...

At the time your camera was made, 1GB was the max size standard SD card. Then along came 2GB standard SD, but this card also used the same format as previous cards, so yes it also worked in your camera. Now SDHC is a very different format with different file handling (although externally it looks exactly the same). I'm sorry to say, it is very unlikely that SDHC will work with your camera. Here on Fixya you'll see many folks asking why the brand new card they just bought doesn't work with their older camera. 9 time out of 10, this is the reason why.

What is the capacity sd card for a polaroid izone 550

izone 550W has 16MB own internal memory. In addition it takes SD-cards. I'd say since it's quite a new model it'll handle at least 8GB card which is more than adequate (over 2000 frames on highest resolution)

4 GB doesnt work

I believe this camera only supports SD/MMC cards, not SDHC cards. Go to the kodak site to see the detailed specs. Not all devices support SDHC - most new ones do - but some only support the older SD cards.

SD Protected???

pop out the SD memory card. look for a tiny switch (lever) on the card and move it to the other position (the position that does not say "lock") and try again

Optio 30 SD Card Max Size

You can now get up to 2.0 Gigs (that's 2048MB) of storage on a MiniSD card and all you would need is a SD Adaptor. The following site has MiniSD cards that are 1.0Gig (1024MB) or 2.0Gig (2048MB) and they come with FREE adaptors! As technology increases so will the story size. They are talking about making MiniSD cards that are up in the 5.0gig (5120MB) area. Enjoy!
