Question about Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z10 Digital Camera
My Konica Milnolta Dimage Z10 digital camera is giving me the message unable to use card. I thought the SD card was bad so I tried a new one but I got the same message.
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.

Remove the card from the camera verify that the lock unlock switch is in the unlocked position.

Tried all three hints, but no help. I will try a 7 mmc if I can find one. Just bought a roll of 35 mm and that old camera works like a charm.

Hey there all,
i had the same card error problem with my z10 i tried formating with the camera my computer and even with other cameras all for no result...i knew the card was good it formated with other devices and performed as required..i then tried different cards still nothing except for an old 8mb mmc card...hmmmmm....i thought... so i took a chance on going to pricewatch.com and finding a 1 gig mmc card for 11.00 dollars free shipping but nontheless it worked like a charm!!. the difference in the cards are that the sd has like 9 contacts and the mmc has 7 its probally a little slower in its transfer rate . i hope this helps any who has this same unable to read card error on their z10. its a great camera and takes great photos at least for its level of technology
