Did you check the slot to see if any of the pins are bent?

Memory card will not re insert

Try to
1) check you insert it the correct way (check in manual if in doubt),
2) check there is nothing inside the memory card slot,
3) check if the card is damaged,
4) try another card.
If all this gives no result, you should take it to the shop you bought the camera and let them check.
Important not to use force here!
Good luck! :)

Hp Photosmart 8150 can't read sdhc memory card

Unless the SD slot is specifically designated that it can read the new SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) memory card it will not read even though it plugs intop the standard SD slot.. I checked and this printer can't read the SDHC card only the standard SD card. You can buy a SDHC USB reader on ebay for a few dollars.

Micro SD Slot in My LG Rumor 2 isn't reading Micro SD Card

hello,kindly check if it is inserted properly,you will see a directive arrow on the memory card to show you how it is to be inserted,if after you have inserted it correctly and it still does not sees it,i would suggest you suspect your memory card is corrupt if their is any message displaying on your mobile phone screen,and if it does not show any message like memory card corrupted,then you will have to visit a mobile phone repair expert to help you change the memory card slot,after this your mobile phone will now read your memory card.

kindly rate this solution if it's helpful,

take care.

My camera will not accept the memory card

Hello, one thing you might want to try is to format the memory card. To do this:
-Insert the card into your computer in the correct slot
-Wait until the computer displays found new hardware/device is ready to use
-Open my computer and look for the card(usually given a drive letter of H,I,J...) On most machines, it will be under a category heading of devices with removable storage
-Right click and select format
-Normally the default settings will work fine
-Select ok/format/continue

Hope this helps

Cannot insert the memory card - push in, won't seat, springy feel

Make sure that you insert the SD card in the correct orientation. If not, it will not lock into place. The SD card is push in to insert and push again to eject.

There is a small diagram showing the correct way to insert the card just below the left hand side of the slot.

Memory card nor inserted

Three things may go wrong.....

1. the memory card slot is defective

soln -- blow into the slot to remove any dirt. if the problem persists, go to nokia care centre, its better not to lay your hands there.

2. the memory card might not be inserted the correct way

soln -- insert it the correct way or maybe wipe it with a clean cloth.

3. there might be a software problem which might be hindering the phone from reading the memory card

soln -- do a firmware reload, through nokia pc suite

First, make sure that the new memory card does not have the protect tab in the lock position. The new card must be unlocked and formatted before your camera will be able to use it. Also, make sure that the size card that you have purchased has not over shot the ability of your camera. I think that a 2 GB card is as large as you can use. Just because the card fits into the slot does not mean that the camera will address it!
