Partition the card as 2x2GB partitions, then format as a FAT16. Put it into the camera and you should be fine. You won't be able to use all 4GB without a device that supports FAT32, but you will be able to use all the CF disk, but you will be able to use 2GB.

I was taking pictures with my digital camera and all of a sudden the lcd screen said memory card not readable, need to format card. i selected cancel. the card is full of pictures from a recent vacation. ...

Could you please tell me the type of camera (model) and the type of memory and the computer that you are running? You might need to purchase a memory card reader and plug it into your computer and then eject the memory card from the camera and insert it into the memory card reader. Some computers come with a memory card reader in them. I would try that first.
If you filled the memory card past its capacity, you may have compromised the photos that are on it.

My screen says 'internal memory is full' I have only taken about 50 pictures. I then bought a new memory card but after 3 pictures the same message comes on screen.

You need to look at your image storage settings. Press "Menu", "up/down" and "OK" to choose "Image Storage"; is it set to "auto" or "internal"?

If it's set to "Auto" then there's some reason that it's not recognising your memory card. You should format it. Press "Menu", "up/down" and "OK" to choose "Format" and then select the memory card.

If it's set to "Internal" then you need to set it to "Auto". Then it will use the memory card if it's inserted. (Take the card out to access the photos in Internal Memory.)

Unrecognizable format right after we take the picture. You see the picture for a moment in the camera display but suddenly change to a square with the message unrecognizable picture format. We have...

Try this:...go into the menu and find "reset"...follow the on-screen instructions to return the camera to factory default settings. Then, download any pics from the memory card that you want to save. Use a separate card reader if necessary. Then, with the card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" and follow the on-screen instructions. Let me know how this works for you.

My m1033 won't read the card and only lets me take 6 pictures and then says the internal memory is full. I get the pictures off the camera and card by connecting the camera to my computer, not with a card...

First, promise you will never use the internal memory again. Go ahead...promise. Now, do this: 1. Download any pics from the internal memory you want to save. Then, with no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions. 2. Download any pics from the card you want to save. Then, with the card in the camera, do the format thing again. Everything should be ok from now on. By the way, using a card reader for downloads is what the pros should too.

In the camera menu, there should be an entry for "copy" which should give you the option to copy to a memory card.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5 does not recognise my memory card

1. Go into the menu and find "reset"...follow the on-screen instructions. 2. With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the instructions.. 3. After downloading any pictures from the card, insert it into the camera and do the "format" thing again. everything should work now. Remember, never use the computer to format or erase your card...always use the camera. Also, when removing the card from the computer, always use "safely remove hardware" icon at the bottom right of your computer screen.

New camera ,not working.

lol, ok...The memory card will only go in one way. But check the little white switch on the side of the memory card and make sure it is NOT in the locked position. Once this is taken care of reinstall the memory card. Now in you options/menu screen you can select on there where you want your pictures to be stored...Device / Memory / Auto. You can either put it on Memory or Auto (if you have this). In addition, you may need to format your new memory card. This is also in your menu screen to Format Memory Card. Go ahead and do this. But be forwarned...if you do this when you have pictures on your card, it will erase all of your pictures completely. If you do those things, everything should work fine. You don't need a full charge for your camera to work, but if you have rechargable batteries, it is recommended to fully charge your camera before use. If you are using standard AA batteries this isn't necessary. Oh, and when your memory card is in the camera you should see a little icon on your LCD screen that looks like a mini memory card. This is an indicator that the camera recognizes you have the memory card in the camera and along with that will be a 4/1200. The first number is the amount of pictures taken on the card currently and the second number is the total possible pictures you can take on the card before it is full.

3. It will ask you if you want to erase all data.
4. Select No and everything should be fine.

Did you possibly shoot video by mistake? Please check the video setting and see if you have a video that has filled the memory so its is full. If you have you can delete it, otherwise, run the format command from the Cameras menu and that will place the memory back to square one and you should be good to go. / Please let me know if that works! Thanks //D
