Hello -- just read your problem - interesting - do you have a multi card reader for the PC ? if so you could check out the card with the PC first.
OR -- do you have a printer that can accept 'cards' this would also work from the PC also.
(This is how I download RAW format from my FinePix onto the PC)
I assuming you have entered a Card into the M603 before and other cards worked ? and it's just this 8GB card that won't.
Last resort if you can't get hold of a multi card reader is to take the card in a Photo Shop as if to print some pictures and see what their machine says when you insert your card.
It may ask you - Should I formatt the card -- say YES. Or if it says card error than just suspect the card , it may be faulty. -- Ray
There is a limitation with this camera and the size of memory cards it can handle. Larger cards than 1GB, are not recognized properly. You can however use larger cards if you format the card in the camera using the USB cable connected to your PC. Just connect the camera to your PC. In windows explorer select the camera drive, right-click and select "format". I have used this to get a 2GB card working with my 603. Beware that files larger than 1GB can not be stored on the card. I once had been recording a video at concert for about 30 minutes with the 2GB card installed (the camera got really hot during this shooting!). When hitting the record button again to save this giant clip, I got an error message "write error" I was a sad puppy that night.
Are you sure the computer s 'seeing 'the camera this time.
USB can be a bit iffy.
Leave the camera plugged in but switched off.
Repbbit the computer and switch on camera
Check 'My computer' to see in there is a 'New drive' indicated.
This is a sign of age.
A loose connector perhaps on the screen.
If it still taking good pictures then live with it.
You could try a repair shop- but the likely cost will be well on the way to its replacements price I would think.
