Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ18K Digital Camera
Have new (< 1 month) FZ18. All's fine up to 1Gb card.
Purcahsed new 4Gb SDHC, but gives a "Memory Card Error. Memory Card Parameter Error".
Can't get past this to do anything with the camera.
Card works OK in computer via the supplied USB2 reader.
Tried re-formatting with Panasonic's program downloaded via link on http://panasonic.co.jp/pavc/global/cs.
Problem still unresolved.
Is there anything else I can do before accepting I got a dud card even though it seems OK on the computer (Windows XP)?
Seems hard to believe the camera would be at fault. My past experience with Panasonic cameras is excellent.
(Similar thread running on FX-01)
I had exactly the same problem with a 2 year old LX-1. The card worked fine on the computer, formated no problem but would not work in the camera.
I took a can of air and used maybe 3 one second bursts to blow out the card slot. Card immediately started working.
