Card errors Hi, a friend bought this sandisk card and his camera broke, before having chance to use it, as he gave it to me in its original packaging. I unpacked the card and inserted into to my girls camera and message appeared that Card is Full. Connected it to Mac and wouldn't recognise the card. Connected it to Pc, recognized the card, and when I tried formatting Windows message saying drive cannot be formatted. Any Solutions or ideas please??? Camera is Vivitar ViviCam 6324...not top of range but my girlfriend has 3 sd cards and not a problem with any of them. Thanks for any help.

Re: Card errors

I suspect that the format of the camera is different than that of the computer. When I have run into similar problems, I have had success reformating the disk in the camera. If yours will not work, try another!...Dave

New camera, Canon PowerShot A2300, I have not used it, yet. Just placed the new battery in after I charged it, and I put in the San Disk 8GB SDHC Card, and the camera says "memory card error". I ca

Normally, you can only insert an SD card one way. Try a different SD card or check to see if the SD card you're using has the "write protect" switch on. If that's not the issue try formatting the card in your PC and then format it in the camera.

Only can see 32mb of 4g, originally saw all of it.

Try reformatting the memory card in the camera after your next download of the pictures. that should fix it unless the card has failed.

My computer do not recognized my Sandisk Cruzer Micro 1.0 GB.

I had the same exact problem on my 8G card. It worked fine in the camera, but when I plugged it into the card reader it flashed once and then the light went off. So, I put the card back in the camera and ran a USB cable from my camera (there was a port on the side of my Cannon Powershot that was smaller than a USB, but I don't know what to call it) to my computer. When I turned the camera power on, the computer was able to read the 8G card while it was inside the camera. I downloaded everything to my computer at that point. Hope this helps! I got the chord from my external hard drive and that fit from the camera to the computer.

I defraged my card and now it does not work in my camera

An older mac could have rearrange the byte order and thus render the card unusable. Have you tried to format the card in the camera? If this doesn't work contact sandisk for a replacement.

Locked Memory Card

I use a Nikon D300 and have Sandisk Compact Flash memory cards. i ahve not come across this problem but would suggest that you insert the memory card into your camera and reformat the memory card. This should clear any errors in the system BUT IT WILL ALSO WIPE ANY PHOTOGRAPHS YOU AHVE TAKEN when formating the memory card.

have you tried to reformat the CF card?  If you deleted the image through your computer and not with the camera, the computer may have removed more than what was needed...
