Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ30 Digital Camera

1 Answer

My Lumix DMC FZ30 use to work using a 4gb SDHC SanDisk card, but now says, "Memory card error please check the card". However, the card works fine in any other cameras. A small pocket Fujifilm camera for example. I was told to reformat the card in the camera, but I'm unable to use any part of the FZ30 camera while the card is inserted and on. Please help as I want to use my 4gb card and not just the 2gb ones which work fine so I know it's not a problem with the camera reading memory cards, just the current one which worked in the past. Thank you for any help you can give me. Melanie Pope

Memory cards have a limited life. If you've been using it a lot and erasing it or formatting it, it probably is just worn out. Take it to a camera shop and try a new card. If that works, go to a discount store and buy a new one. It will cost less than half the price of that of the camera shop.

I have a Panasonic Lumix DMC FX30. Why aren't there SD memory cards in 4gb or higher? Can I substitute any of the other SDHC cards?


There are no SD memory cards 4GB or larger because the Secure Digital standard limits card capacities to 2GB. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work in the DMC-FZ30. You will need to stay with SD cards 2GB and smaller.

I purchased a sdhc 4gb memory card for my Panasonic DMC-LZ2 Camara and when I put it in I get a message that says memory card error. Do I need to format it? and how do I do that


The DMC-LZ2 uses SD and MMC cards, not SDHC cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible. You will need to use SD cards 2GB and smaller.

Panasonic DMC--LZ2 gives me ''memory card error'' message if i put a SanDisk SDHC 4GB card in.


The DMC-LZ2 is specified to work with SD cards, not SDHC cards. While SDHC cards are physically compatible with SD cards, they will not work in SD devices. SD cards will work in SDHC devices, but that doesn't help you any here.

It's a hardware incompatibility. No firmware update can get around it.

I have a Panassonic DMC0-FZ30 approx 3 years old SD cards 1 nd 2 GB work perfecxtly but the 4GB does not work at all. What is te answer?


Since your model is capable of handling both Secure Digital (SD and SDHC) storage, there is only one of three problems. The easiest is that the card is "write protected" meaning that there is a little switch on the card itself.Slide the switch forward to unlock it. If that is not the issue, the card may be needing formatting. Insert the card into the camera and use the format utility, or insert it into your computer and format it that way. Lastly, it could be a bad card. More than likely, it is one of the two prior explanations. I hope this helps and good luck!

Message: Memory Card Error - Memory Card Parameter Error on 4gb SDHC card


I recently bought a DMC-TZ3 and have been researching memory cards. Several sites sell cards with the camera and list the card type. I would suggest buying one of these cards. Any cards larger than 2gb must be SDHC type SD cards. There appear to different types of SDHC cards, 1.0, 1.1 and 2.0. Check out Wikipedia.org for a description. 2.0 cards are not compatable for devices developed prior to 2.0 so that may be the reason for the camera problem. So far I haven't seen anything that states what type SDHC card the camera requires. I found a computer memory site that that sells memory that they say will work. There may be others.
