Download the pics and look at the average fiile size used. To see file size, in folder where pic where downloaded, left click in blank area and select VIEW then DETAILS. If the average file sizes is 3Meg, then you got all the card will hold.

If average file sizes is 1.5Meg or less, then you are missing memory space. Some cheap off-brand cards will false label and report a capacity larger than thery really are. FORMAT the card in the camera and try it again.

There is an SD card tester Utility for free at: http://tinyurl.com/68u866 . It will test the speed and capacity of an SD or SDHC card in a card reader. This is a popular program on the net and perfectly safe to download. It does not install on your computer, but just runs till the test is completed. You get a report of the findings. There is a ReadMe file included for instructions, but would recommend to your more techie friend if your not.

If your card is a name brand, San Disk, Kingston, Panasonic, etc., then it is very unlikely it is a fraud.

Cannot format a maxwell class 2 4 gb card for my lumix dmc-lc33


The DMC-LC33 is designed to work with SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) card. While it fits into the slot it will not work. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Should you use an 8gb sd memory card in a panasonic lumix dmc-fx3 camera ?


Hi,

The manual lists the following SD cards compatible:

4 GB SDHC Memory Card
2 GB SD Memory Card
1 GB SD Memory Card
512 MB SD Memory Card
256 MB SD Memory Card
128 MB SD Memory Card
64 MB SD Memory Card

An 8GB card may or may not work. If you try it, make sure it is an SDHC card. (Note: HC=High Capacity)

Thanks for using Fixya.

I just bought the Lumix DMC-ZR1 (yesterday April 3rd) When I put the memory card in, and it's blank, the camera reads that the memory card is full....how can I fix it??


In the instruction manual - see links below
  • It says DO NOT format on PC - you need to format in camera - have you done this? on Page 29 of the Manual http://panasonic.com.au/content/library/files/F002413.pdf

About cards that can be used in this unit You can use an SD Memory Card and SDHC Memory Card. •When the term card is used in these operating instructions this refers to the following types of Memory Cards. – SD Memory Card (8 MB to 2 GB) – SDHC Memory Card (4 GB to 32 GB) More specific information about memory cards that can be used with this unit. • You can only use an SDHC Memory Card if using cards with 4 GB or more capacity. • A 4 GB (or more) Memory Card without an SDHC logo is not based on the SD Standard and will not work in this product.
This is the instructions for the ZR1/ZX1 model http://panasonic.jp/support/global/cs/mpi/dsc/zx1/menu01.html
A number of manuals available from this site http://www2.panasonic.com/consumer-electronics/support/Cameras-Camcorders/Digital-Cameras/Lumix-Digital-Cameras/model.DMC-ZR1K

Howmuch gb on sd for panasonic dmc fz20. thanks


DO NOT go for 4GB and beyond. I had purchased a 4GB SD Card but my DMCFZ20 camera did not support it. It has worked fine with 2 GB.

Unprotect memory card


Hi,

To set the memory card in unprotected mode, you have to do the following.

On the side of the SD chip, there is a little switch. Shift the switch away from "lock", then insert the card back into the camera.
This unprotects the card. You should now be able to take pictures and videos.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If this does not solve the problem, then it is very likely that the SD card is faulty. I would recommend using Panasonic, Lexar or Sandisk memory cards.

~Lexar SD card


~1 Panasonic SD card

~2 Panasonic SD card


~Sandisk SD card
