Unfortunately, you can't. The D53 works with MMC and SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work. Since this is a hardware issue, it is not something that can be changed with a firmware update. You need to use cards 2GB and smaller.

Memory card after formatting, say check card (samsung camera)


Probably, especially if your card is a 4GB or larger SDHC card, then it's definitely the wrong card. The older Digimax S800 camera can only use standard SD cards (2GB or less). Fortunately, these are very inexpensive these days, and may be found on Amazon if your local store no longer carries them.For others reading this experiencing similar problems, please see this article.

I put a new sd card in my camera and it says check sd card. It wont let me take pictures what does that mean


Your model camera can only use up to a 2GB standard SD cards, and not 4GB or higher SDHC cards. There are several other possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". The most common is trying to use a 4GB or higher SDHC card with an older camera made before the SDHC format came out. Others include problems with the tiny slide switch on the side of the card, or the electrical contact switch internal to the camera. The problem may also arise from simple formatting problems if the card has never been formatted in the camera (note that this will also erase the card). Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link.

Check SD/MS card, black screen


If you are using high capacity card i.e 4gb and above, it may cause the problem as this camera dos'nt support for memory cards more than 2gb,
Try cleaning the contact points of the memory card to ensure fine connectivity is established,
Try formatting the memory card

Your problem is that your camera only takes standard SD cards up to a maximum of 2GB. The card you have bought is likely to be a 4GB SDHC model. SDHC is a later development of SD; SDHC compliant devices can still use older SD cards, but SD-only devices cannot use SDHC. This is a hardware limitation so there is no way at all to use an SDHC card in your camera.

Note that if your 4GB card is definitely an SD and not an SDHC then it's still incompatible with your camera: very few standard SD devices were ever made with the firmware and hardware to handle the different memory addressing architecture used by the larger capacity card. Some cameras did have firmware updates to allow the larger SD card to be used, but yours is not one of them.

Your only fix is to sell your card (or keep it for another device) and to buy a regular SD card no larger than 2GB maximum capacity.

I purchased a 8gig sd card and tried to put it in


The camera only supports SD memory (limit 2GB), not SDHC (4GB and more). The manual claims up to 1GB guaranteed, though the camera recognizes my 2GB card card.

Memory card


What type of camera are you using? Also, are we talking SD style cards?

Basically if you are using SD cards you need to make sure your camera is compatible with SDHC cards if you want to use anything above 2GB. Once you go from 2GB to 4GB it is no longer an SD; it becomes an SDHC card and not all cameras are compatible with them yet.

SD Card Wont Work


Check if the SD card is iserted properly into the camera, eventually pull it out and push it back inside the camera. Also remove camera batteries , repeat the operation, and put back batteries.
If the card still does not work test the card into a different device, it is not unfrequent that an SD card comes defective from factory. In this case take the card back to the retailer and a have it changed.
If the card works on a different device, then it may be that the NV3 does not support 4 GB , there is no mention about max SD format supported in camera specs, or in the manual. In this case I suggest testing a 1 or 2 Gb card at the shop, and then buying right one.

Memory card problem


Are you sure you have the right type of memory card? Make sure you use an SD/MMC card. You might try another SD card.

Is this a new camera? I bought one once and the card slot was defective. I took it back right away, rather than trying to force a card into it.
