    Where did you buy this card? There's recently been a bunch of bad cards coming from Hong Kong. Most are sold on ebay at bargain prices directly from Hong Kong. They're actually old 512MB (or less) cards that have been overclocked to show up as 2GB (or more). It quickly becomes apparent that something is wrong when you try to record anything above the unknown actual size of the card.

    I've personally bought one of these cards. The seller soon became non-existent. The card is usable, but I primarily limit its use only for photos, knowing that saving video on it would soon exceed its actual capacity.

As mentioned by t00nz, fake memory cards are flooding in. It is big business (especially on Ebay) and lots of people are buying fake or refurbished memory without even knowing it. If you bought from Ebay, make sure you buy from someone who has great feedback and it comes in the sealed retail package. This won't guarantee it will be legit, but it sure helps.

You also want to test your memory are soon as you get it with a memory card reader and software on your PC (such as SiSoft Sandra). You should also see if you can read/write to the entire memory card by moving large amounts of data to it. It sounds like you bought a 512MB memory instead of a 2GB one.

Here is a great link to see which memories look bad before your purchase. http://www.overclockers.com.au/wiki/Fake_Memory_Cards

Good luck.

Display reads "images recorded in internal memory" but there are none and I can't take more than 4 pictures until the camera says the memory is full. Also the memory card says it is full after 7 pictures,...


hi, the memory card you are using is to small for the camera it has not got enough memory on it you need to get at least a 1gb memory card or 2gb memory this will then allow you to take between 500 and 1000 pictures the 16mb card you have in is not worth using it will only hold a couple of pictures so go to the well known auction site and buy a 2gb memory card of the same type such as sd card or micro sd or mini sd it should tell you on the 16mb card what type it is then just buy the same type but with either 1gb or 2gb or even 4gb of memory this will then let you take 1000s of pictures

the 16mb card is no good in your camera get a bigger card and your problem will be solved

let me know if you have any problems with the new card ok

Fuji FinePix S2 Pro New 4 Gb disk in cam prompts msg ''Card not initialzied.'' Have tried many things. None work. Help.


Hi,


Go into menu and try to format memory card. Most cameras can just use card right from package without format.Formatting will delete all pics if any available. This is the only solution for your problem.
This is the procedure,In playback mode on the camera (green arrow on selector switch - or middle option if the legend has worn off) press menu/ok -> select format -> menu/ok ->menu/ok to confirm
Any pictures on the card will be lost.


Thank you !!

Hello I have a digital camera general electric E840s with a memory card 4G but i have a problem when i use to record a video clip the period of the record stop in 1.75 min. my memory card work very good


What class is the card? A class 4 or better will write faster allowing more video time. Look at the card closely and inside a letter "c" will be a number. If your video ends in 1.75 min. the number is probably a 2.

SD card problem


here is a list of compatable memory cards
http://www.4allmemory.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=search.memorySearch&model_id=42425
.. any SD or MMC card should work up to 4 gb ... so your 2gb should be ok .. i suspect that it may be damaged .. you can try formatting it in a USB card reader if you have one on your computer .. some laptops have the SD slot built in .. there was some compatability issues with memory cards for older cameras but there shouldnt be any with such a new machine .. make sure the contacts are clean and the "protect" switch (if any) is in the unprotected mode .. when you format the card it may take several minutes so give it time .. if you are going to take movies then its better to use a "high speed" SD card .. like the 133x mentioned in the above URL .. slow memory may cause missed frames or 15 fps instead of 30 fps record rates.. .
the specs on your camera do show SD and MMC compatability .but they dont show any brand preference .. .

Video recording length


Yes, you can record till the memory card gets full. You can get more recording time if you set the motion picture to the lowest quality ie QVGA 10fps.

Camera won't record on SD card


SD cards have become the industry standard....but beware...there are SD cards NOT backward compatible...i.e.,some cams won't take 2GB or larger; then there is SDHC; SDHC(HD); RUNS FROM 512G thru 32GB HC/HD; ECT...check your cams manual for SD card compatibility.

Memory


Ok, here's the deal...

The '9 hours' of recording time is a bench mark only... The unit only comes with 64 MB of internal memory, and when you are recording in the highest resolution, (Mpeg4) mode, then it eats up the available space really fast. Keep in mind, that in high resolution video mode, as opposed to standard, you will eat up at least 64 in about 7 minutes, not 5.

I dropped a 512 MB SD card in the camcorder, and on high resolution video, you might get away with 45 minutes to and hour. The camcorder records in 640 by 480 resolution, which isn't bad, but certainly isn't in DVD quality either...

So, pick youself up a 2 GB SD card, and you will certainly get up to at least 5 hours in standard mode. Rule of thumb, 400 MB per hour in standard mode. But, if you also go into the camera mode and take high resolution photos, that will also eat up your available storage ability...

Any other questions, just let me know...
