    Hi



    Thanks





    The Sd card was sent from the shop with the camera.



    However have tried another one and now the camera works fine, so either the original one is faulty or as you say incompatible.



    Thanks for your help.

Will NOT turn on when sd media card is inserted


look through the SD slot, all pins should in position and clean, if something looks wrong, try to clean or adjust the pin with philips #000 screw drive or similar size tools
if everything looks just fine, try to put another SD card.
if nothing works to you, through it to trash or sell on ebay.

I cannot insert my Transcend SD 2 GB memory card in the camera. Is there only 1 type of memory card that can be inserted?


Make sure there's nothing in the slot, and you've got the card oriented properly. The i1237 works with SD and SDHC cards. The Transcend 2GB SD card should work fine.

I have a samsung digmax s600 i works fine without the sd card inserted but when i insert the sd card the camara wont turn on


Be sure you have a standard SD card to put into this camera, not a SDHC type.
You will be limited to a maximum of 2GB with SD, but it should work perfectly.
If not, check the SD card in a notebook or PC's cardreader and/or replace the
SD card with another one. If this does not work the SD card interface in the
camera may be defective.

Sd card won't click into place on my Nikon d60


Check your SD card, there may be a piece of it missing. Did the same to my camera and looking into the card holder, there was a piece of SD card lying at th bottom! (I used a needle to dislodge it!)

No memory card.


I have the same problem with my Canon G9. I have found a solution and since doing it the problem has only happened once again. Here is the solution: I have a 32mb sd card that was given with the camera when I bought it. This card has different connectors than the ones that are used on the usual SD cards. As soon as this card is inserted the camera works properly and all other cards work fine after. I'm assuming that the sd card circuit blocks and this 32mb card unblocks it somehow... Hope this will help you.
