Question about Concept (87480) Digital Camera

2 Answers

My new 87480 camera does not keep any pictures.

  • I put a Sandisk SD card 2GB.
  • Most of the time it says "directory index full" while there is nothing on the camera.
  • I tried to reformat the card with the set up options. After a few times it took a picture and I could display it in the replay mode. Connected to PC before turning the camera off. But could not transfer to PC.

Hey!

Remember that your camera actually has 2 memories.
You are using an external 2GB SD card, but there is also an on-board internal 32MB SDRAM.

Make sure that you have selected the correct memory in the camera's menu. 32MB is relatively small and may be full if you have selected it by mistake.

Have fun.

Brand new SD card - says card is full? Nikon D40


Are you sure it is full, did you put it into a computer to check? Maybe the picture resolution is very high or you have videos and there is more than 2Gb worth of photos.

Samsung s1030 digital camera keep showing memory full but have inserted new sdhc card how do i clear this as i cannot take any pics


Clear it by putting in a compatible memory card. The S1030 works with SD cards. Your 8GB SDHC card in not compatible. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

I can not put memory card inside the camera, this card is ritzpix 2GB. Can u please tell me what can be the problem?thank you


Your problem is that you are not using a suitable memory card for the D90. 2Gb SD cards have read/write speeds that are much too slow to work with quality DSLR's. Let me explain. When you take a picture with the D90, the data generated first goes into a small capacity buffer memory. The purpose of the buffer is to act as a conduit to your SD memory card and retain picture data until all of the data is safely written to the SD card. If your SD card can accept data as quickly as the buffer can pass it to the SD card, there is no problem. But, If the SD card is not capable of accepting the data quickly enough, the buffer will start to fill up since data is coming in faster than it is going out. If you take pictures in quick succession with a slow SD card or if you shoot video with a slow SD card, the buffer will overflow; i.e., fill to its capacity and become incapable of accepting more data until its capacity returns as the SD card accepts the data. During that time, the camera will prevent you from taking any more still photographs. You will push the shutter release and nothing will happen. If you are shooting video, the camera will continue to work, but the sound will loose sync with the picture.

For your D90 to function properly under all conditions, you must have an SDHC card that is rated at 45Mbs or faster. When I first bought my D90 several years back, 35Mbs was the fastest card made and I had the problems I described to you above. When Sandisk brought out the Sandisk Pro card with a 45Mbs speed my problems melted away. I should also ad that 2Gb is much too low of a capacity for the D90. It will fill up very quickly if you shoot Raw or fine quality jpeg files. You need a minimum of 8Gb.

Hi, got new kodak camera and 4gb memory sd inside. i only took 8 pictures so far and said internal memory full. i dont understand why? i want to keep 8 pictures and it should be plenty as using 4gb and...


4GB "SD" cards are almost always actually SDHC (high capacity) cards. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but they are slightly different electrically. Many cameras won't work with SDHC cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

So your camera is not able to use the 4GB card, and is ignoring it and using internal memory only. That memory is tiny and won't hold many pictures, and when it is full, the camera cannot work at all. You need to delete the pics in the internal memory and get a memory card your camera can understand (2GB or less).

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 .. .

Memory Card


make sure that the memory card you bought is a secure digital (SD) memory card. the kodak memory you have might not be an SD card.

SD cards


Do the 4GB Cards say SDHC on them? They should. SDHC is simply "Secure Digital High Capacity". They're high capacity SD cards that hold more than regular cards. In this case, 4GB. The problem with these is that they need to be supported by the device. I've never put an SDHC card into a device that doesn't support them, but it looks like that's what your situation is. The highest memory capacity a non-SDHC compliant device is capable of 2GB. I recommend that you return the 4GB cards and buy 2GB cards instead.

SD card rejection


I have seen SD cards go defective. Also, enquire to the manufacture of the camera or at least the dealer to make sure that the model of SD card that you have is compatible. I have seen compatiblity issues with particular SD card types on specific models.

New memory card will not work


this camera is actually really compatible with the 2gb sd card, anything higher will give you that message. since you have the right kind but still won't work - 2 possibilities:

camera memory ready issue > repair necessary
defective card> try another one
