SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

If that doesn't work, try another card.

Mesage "unable to use card"


SD Memory Cards have a write-protect switch to prevent image
data from being deleted. By sliding the switch to the bottom of
the card, the data will be protected. images cannot be recorded
when the card is protected. If an attempt is made to record or
delete an image with the camera, the card-locked message will
appear on the monitor.

Problem with memory card


Make sure your camera is off.....Open flap to memory card.....On the side of your card you will see a little TAB that you can slide up and down....Your card is in the LOCKED POSITION which means you can't accidentally erase pictures stored on the card.....Simply slde the tab to the opposite position where it is now and you will have an unlocked card.....

Compatibility of sdhc card with konica milota Dimage Z10


Your camera will accept a maximum SD card capacity of 2GB. It simply isn't capable of handling anything of a larger capacity and in particular is incompatible with the more technically advanced SDHC cards.

Your fix is to either replace your camera with a later model or to stick to using SD cards with a maximum 2GB capacity.

SD card won't stay in camera


Quick fix... Roll a little piece of paper up or fold into a small square the set it on top of the memory card and tape that down. so that it puts pressure on the card and keeps it seated in the slot. It sounds like the spring inside the camera is broken. which you will need to have sent out to be repaired unless you have a local camera repair person. And that is going to take about a month. Actually more... unless you find a local repair person. Because Sony bought out minolta a couple years ago and shut down all the minolta repair centers and got rid of almost all their parts. I once had a customer who sent in a minolta to get it fixed and it took about 8 months to get it back. Because of parts.
So You will probably want buy a new camera. but there are still a lot of those Minolta's around on clearance and you can get a great price.
Hope that helps,
Caleb

Unable to Use Card


My Z6 does the same thing every now and then.

The only way I can get the message to stop (and that annoying warning chime) is to pop the card in and out real fast with the camera turned on.

It seems as though these Konicas are REALLY picky with the cards, and this is a well known issue. Also, make sure the little "lock" tab is in the "unlock" position.

You can also try taking the batteries out, and holding the on/off button for 1 minute. That resets it back to factory defaults, and clears out any "bugs". Sometimes it helps.

Sometimes using a card reader and manually formatting the card works too.

Try using a different Memory Card.
Then try takeing the batteries out overnight to let the camera reset.
Otherwise I dont have good news options. Sounds like It would be something internal that wouldnt be cost affective to fix.

Hope its the Memory Card,
Caleb
