I bought a brand new Sandisk 4GB memory card for my Canon PowerShot A520. The camera registers my other memory card just fine, but this card says Memory Card Error. I checked for locked position, and it is...

The 4 GB memory card is not compatible with the camera. It's a SDHC card (high capacity) and the A520 only supports SD cards. (The difference between the SD and the SDHC is similar to that of single layer and dual layer optical discs. Not all drives can handle both formats.)

Documentation for the camera is here: .

I wish that I had better news for you.

I bought a SanDisk 4 GB and my HP photosmart M627 will not format the memory card

The M627 works with SD cards. Your 4GB card is an SDHC card and will not work with this camera. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Installed a Sandisk 4 GB memory card and camera says "CARD ERROR". What gives?

The A402 is designed to work with SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While SDHC cards will fit into SD devices, they will not work. You'll have to stay with SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

New 4GB SanDisk card won't format in my Hp M425 digital camera!


First be aware that a 4GB card may well exceed the capability of this camera as older cameras have a max capacity of 2GB because of the filing system that is used which is known as FAT.

A 4GB card is FAT32 and this causes problems because older cameras cannot recognize that system.

However please have a look at my FixYa Tip on the subject which gives a complete breakdown on the issue.

In some cases you can format a card with your PC and it may work with the camera.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I have a Pentax Optio A20. I currently user an Sandisc Ultra II 1.0 GB card. I can't find those cards anymore. I'm not sure if the camera will support a SanDisk 4GB UltraII SDHC Card or a SanDisk 2GB...

It will take a 2 GB card, I am using one now.
I can't tell you about a 4GB card, but that's a LOT of storage, so you probably don't really need a 4GB card anyhow???

Formatting an CF 4GB sandisk ultra II....How to do

The camera uses FAT16 so it won't be able to use cards bigger than 2GB. IF you can format it, you will only have 2GB space available.
Formatting the card: Press Menu/OK, select Setup, Select Format, press OK untill it's done.

Cant get my camera to format a memory card

agreeing with fixer1950. This model is in fact just designed for up to 2GB SD or MMC card.

When Easyshare one was released, 4gb SDHC was not yet created. You will always get the "memory card requires formatting" (looping until you get a file sys error msg) if you will keep on trying to use the 4gb.

4gb sandisk sdhc card

I think the C330 is not compatible with the SDHC cards.
The spec for the SD card format is going to 2GB but the Kodak C330 not compatible with 2 GB SD memory cards.


But try an firmware upgrade.
Why download firmware version 1.07?
This firmware version improves memory card compatibility and provides general performance updates.
