Question about VistaQuest VQ-1005 Digital Camera

VistaQuest VQ1005 SD card is locked

My VQ1005 camera has a 256 mb san disk SD card, and the window has three dots in it, or says E90 or E98. Earlier it took 670 mid resolution pictures before I stopped taking pictures, then it would only take 165 with good batteries. It often shuts off before a minute is up, and right after taking pictures, and instead of taking pictures, with a new battery.

Hi, I seemed to have a similar problem. I just got my camera, and straight away put a good battery in it. It seemed to be very unpredictable in it's behaviour - sometimes freezing, or taking a picture then switching itself off, or taking a picture which ended up being corrupt.
I also bought one for my colleague who seemed to have no problem. We tested, and it wasnt the SDcard. Ths only other factor was the battery. My colleague used the factory supplied battery and it was fine! So I used that "cheap" battery and my camera works now! So i'm off to buy some cheap batteries. Hope your problem is as simple to solve.

Have a new DV700 and bought a PNY SDHC 4 GB card for it. DV says "Card Full" when installed, lock off. Tried to format --- PC saids "windows cannot complete formatting". PC is...


The DV700 works with SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it's electronically incompatible and won't work with this camcorder. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Camera will not acknowlege sd card- why?


There are three reasons first the card SD or SDHC may be locked I'll include a diagram for this little nasty lock the switch needs to be pushed forward towards the top edge closest to the gold contacts.
Another once you have the lock in the unlock position is that the card will need to be formatted to the camera you are going to us it in.
Last you may have purchase a memory card greater in capacity then the cameras firmware will allow. For this you would need to go onto the manufacturers web site and download the most current firmware. BUT most of the time it's this little lock or you didn't format the card

Should you use an 8gb sd memory card in a panasonic lumix dmc-fx3 camera ?


Hi,

The manual lists the following SD cards compatible:

4 GB SDHC Memory Card
2 GB SD Memory Card
1 GB SD Memory Card
512 MB SD Memory Card
256 MB SD Memory Card
128 MB SD Memory Card
64 MB SD Memory Card

An 8GB card may or may not work. If you try it, make sure it is an SDHC card. (Note: HC=High Capacity)

Thanks for using Fixya.

Nikon Coolpix 4600: Problem: It won't take any photos, it reads: THIS CARD CANNOT BE USED. The card is 128 MB. I purchased a new card: 2GB but it won't work also. My manual says to clean the contacts...


1) Have you formatted the cards?

2) Try the cards in the card reader in your computer to see if they can be read.

3) Try the "switch off camera - remove and replace battery - switch on camera" trick with the original 128 Mb card in place. This will reset the camera's memory.

4) Note the type of card is important - not all cards can be used in a camera (especially some of the latest bigger ones) - check the type of cards supported by your camera.

I found this at the Nikon USA site (note that the 2 GB card is not listed - as said "Cards are not all the same" and use different drivers to operate them):

Question Which Secure Digital Cards are approved for use in the Coolpix 4600/5600? trnsp.gif Answer The Nikon Quality Department has tested the following cards and approved their use in the Coolpix 4600/5600:

SD memory cards:
SanDisk 16 MB, 32 MB, 64 MB, 128 MB, 256 MB, 256 MB*, 512 MB, 512MB*, 1 GB
Panasonic 16 MB, 32 MB, 64 MB, 128 MB, 256 MB*, 512 MB*,1 GB
Toshiba 16 MB, 32 MB, 64 MB, 128 MB, 128 MB*, 256 MB, 256 MB*, 512 MB

*High speed type of 10 MB/s or over

Other brands and capacities of cards may work, but Nikon cannot guarantee their operation. Check with the manufacturer of the third-
party card for compatibility information. Nikon recommends keeping one of the approved cards available for troubleshooting.

Not saving recorded material on card


Could it be that your SD card is not fast enough? There are a lot of different flavours of SD card. Particularly, some SD cards are faster than others.

There are two main types of SD card: the original SD cards and the newer SDHC cards. The latter look the same, and the Xacti HD2 (and I guess the HD1) takes both.

The former, SD cards, have speed ratings that are given in terms of how many times faster they are than floppy disks.
Rating Speed (MB/s)
6x 0.9
32x 4.8
40x 6.0
66x 10.0
100x 15.0
133x 20.0
150x 22.5
200x 30.0

SDHC cards have a "class" rating where
  • Class 2: 2 MB/s
  • Class 4: 4 MB/s
  • Class 6: 6 MB/s

    I find that my "class 6" SDHC card has few problems. This corresponds to a "40x" SD card.

    Your card is pretty small at 256 MB. These days cards are much larger. Could it be that you are using an old card that you bought for a previous camera? If so, perhaps the speed of the card is only 32x (i.e. 32 times faster than a floppy) or less. Perhaps the card is too slow?

    Just an idea.
