Question about Cameras
I have just bought an SD card for my Praktica. It says card error when I load it. There is no problem with the card as I have tried it in my other camera and it works ok. Help!
I have been rummaging around trying to find two solutions: 1) to get my Toshiba Satellite card reader to read SDHC cards and 2) to get my desktop USB ports to read SDHC cards. While MS offers a hotfix for XP, it does not always work because of the different Chip Sets in computers. I have also read where posters say that the SDHC card works in the compter NOW, but NOW will not work in the camera... and the SDHC card NOW works in the camera but will NOT work in the computer.... I found a tekkie article that may help clear the air... SDHC cards are formatted in Fat32x (NOTICE the "x") and SD cards are formatted in Fat32 (no 'x') and these compatibility problems arise when the user unwittingly or unknowingly RE-formats the SDHC card, either when it is put in the computer and won't read or when it is put in the camera and won't read... but just don't bother to mention that THAT is what they did upon inserting the card and only proceeded to complain about an apparent incompatibility. The camera or computer might even mislead you asking if you want to format the card..... but all is not lost. The Panasonic site gives a program AND a pdf instruction book on How To ReFormat an SD or SDHC card specifying the proper Fat32x or Fat32 format. Hope this helps.

What is the orange "card" bundled with my camera and how do I use it?
The “card," pictured below as packaged, is the MASD-1 card adapter.
The MASD-1 accepts microSD and microSDHC media, giving owners the option to record to those cards or to xD-Picture Card media, which is Olympus’ preferred format.
To use microSD/SDHC media in the camera, simply insert the card into the adapter and then insert the adapter into the camera's memory card slot.

SOURCE: Music + 2 Gb-sd-card = ?
Just an FYI, I bought a 16 GB SDHC card for my eware (Panasonic SV-AV20) and found out that the highest compatible card for this device is only 1 GB! (according to http://panasonic.jp/support/global/cs/sd/connect/d_snap/sv_av20.html). I kept getting a "CHECK CARD" error so I know it won't work. You might want to see if your devlice is listed on a similar chart.

Make sure you are using an SD card and not an SDHC card. The SDHC protocol is newer than your camera, and your camera does not support it. SD cards have capacities up to 2 GB. Your camera should work properly with any SD or MMC card.
