The origibal SD 128MB card is too small, so I purchased a new Memory card Sandisk 4GB. When inserted the camera gives 'error memory card' message.
Any ideas?

The S50 uses SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card, and will not work in the S50. You will have to confine your choices to cards 2GB and smaller.

A 4GB memory card will be an SDHC type. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but many cameras won't work with the SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

I inserted a new 4gb sandisk memory card and get a "card error" message with a "00001" in top right corner of display. any advise? thanks.


The 5022 is specified to work with SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it will fit into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work in the 5022. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

If you a using a card reader that plugs into your PC and it STILL doesn't read from the card, this means that the card itself is defective and needs to replaced. You CAN try using another card reader to see if that helps.

Hope this helps. :)

your samsung Gravity 2 wont read the HC format, there is not much you can do sorry. the SD HC is a newer format for devices in the last year or so. Older devices will not accept the HC format cards. I did the same thing! And im in the business, easy mistake. Keep it around though you'll use it soon, just not in your Samsung. Gurvy

Micro sd card not working


I'm having the same problem with a Transcend 4GB microSDHC card / microSD adapter. I have also found it probably has something to do with the card reader...either the card reader is an SD card reader trying to read an SDHC card OR the card reader is not able to read high-gigabyte SD cards (over 1 GB in some cases).

Card Error on a 4GB SDHC Sandisk Memory Card


I went onto the BestBuys site and found a link for compatible memory cards - The SanDisk SDHC isn't compatible with the Canon Poswershot SD750!! Only a 2GB card will work. The Lexar SD and the Kingston Technology 2GB will.
