Sorry to tell you that not all cameras can read that much memory. If you look at your manual on page 92, at the very bottom; it will tell you that the camera is only guaranteed up to 512MB. You camera most likely can read a lot more than that, but where it stop is a **** shoot. You might want to buy a smaller card. :(

!. Formating any card in a PC makes it unsuitable for camera use.
2.The camera model may not support 8Gig.

Sometimes, "card error" simply means that you need to format the card in the camera. This will erase the card so download any pics from it first using a card reader if necessary. typrice_87.jpg

Take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. Here's some freeware photo recovery software that should be what you're looking for.

You will need to use a flash card reader with this software. If you don't have one, get one, they're inexpensive.

The reason this occurred is that you likely never formatted the card. The card will work fine in the beginning but the file structure will eventually corrupt. AFTER you've recovered the photos, format the card in your camera to prevent this from happening again. Keep in mind formatting will also totally erase your card, so again only do this after you've recovered the photos.

I just bought a SD card and when i put it in my camera it says its full but i just bought it havent took any pics or anything and when i go to format it it says FILESYS ERROR e000 100


What is the capacity (max size memory card) that your camera will accept? Error message may be that you have exceeded that capacity. My FujiFilm S700 required a firmware bios flash upgrade for it to be able to take the newer 4 gig cards. Used to max out at 2 gigs. If this has helped, please rate it accordingly. Good luck.

Memory card


Did you just buy this card or have you had it working for a while and now this is happening?

From everything i have read about your camera, they won't take a 2 Gig card. A 1 GIG card is the biggest that is compatible with this camera. If the card is new i would take it back to the store and see if they will let you exchange it for a 1 GIG card.

If this just started happening after using it for a while -- it could be a problem with the card or the camera. Try putting in a different card and see if it will let you format that one. If it does you know for sure the problem is with the card. If you keep getting the same message no matter what card you use, i would phone Kodak. But, according to Kodaks own site, 1 GIG is the biggest card that is compatible. Sorry I couldn't be more help.
Good Luck.

Card Error


try going to wolf camera or ritz camera they have a 512 meg chip for about 8 bucks put it in your camera and see if you can format it and take pictures. I have seen in the past that the 2 gig chips are frauds they are smaller chips formatted to a 2 gig compositor. They have been going around quite abit. if that does not work then the camera has a defective sd port and should be able to be replaced from where you got it. if they will not repair it then call casio you can find their number at www.casio.com/us then under contact us. Casio should fix it if you bought it from a retail store send them your receipt. That what they ask for to see when the warranty started. Hope this helps.

New SD Card wont work - all the others I have do!!


I believe any SD cards larger than 2Gb are technically SDHC cards, which are not compatible with all cameras. Kingston is a decent company so I'm guessing it's not because the card is a dud. If your camera doesn't advertise SDHC compatibility then I don't think you can get the card to work in it.
