Hi,

There could be 2 Possibilities. Either the Card is Corrupt or the Camera is at Fault. You could Format the card and then see, if it could Fix the Problem. The next step would be to use another Card.If the Problem still remains, it would confirm a Fault with the Camera and main board would most likely be in need of replacement.Since you have tried another card with same results.

You may find that updating firmware may restore card operation but not likely.Either way to upgrade firmware(which I would try first)or for service info (mfg does not make parts readily available).

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

1. Is your card very full of pics? More pics just slow down a card.2. Is your card a "cheap" slow-speed card? If so, it can't keep up. If your camera uses SD cards, get a class 6 or better.3. After downloading your pics to your computer, get in the habit of formatting the card in the camera to erase it and return it to original condition.

When camera is turned on it reads "this card cannot be used" i have pictures on it about 60 it is a 4gb pny card. charged camera overnight and took one pic the following morning before message...


Because the same message appears when you insert the card into other cameras the most likely problems are that the card is full or defective.
Have you tried another card in your camera? If not then you should do so. If it works then it confirms your other card is full or defective.

Camera still reads full and will not work when new memery card installed


I had the same problem. Your memory card likely has too much memory. I put in a 4G card and it would not take a photo. Every time the camera went off it said "Error - Card Full".
You have 2 options.
1.) You can remove the memory card and use the internal memory to take photos (it will only hold 20 pics) and transfer them onto the memory card by shutting the camera off, inserting the card, turning the camera on, wait for the menu to clear and then shutting the camera off again and removing the card. This does work, but you are limited in the number and quality of photos that you will get.
2.) Get a smaller capacity memory card. I went out and bought a 2G card. Funny thing is that the camera wouldn't even recognize it at first. When I turned the camera on a message saying "Please wait" kept flashing on the screen. I waited 10 minutes and just shut it off and pulled the card again. I took the card home and formatted it on my PC. When I put it in the camera the next time it worked fine. So to save you some trouble, buy a smaller card and FORMAT it on your computer before trying it in the camera. It will save you a headache. After all of that BS I finally got the stupid thing to work. It takes beautiful pics but I will not be buying another Cuddeback. My next trail cam will be a different brand for sure. Not worth the hassle IMO.

First of all, do you know you're supposed to download the pics from your full card to your computer and then format the card in the camera? Keeping them on the card is risky since the cards are not made for long term storage. The pics can degrade over time. Formatting completely erases a card and that's what happened with your new card. All new cards should be formatted in the camera before using....that's what your camera was trying to tell you.

My camera won't accept new 2GB SD card. Keep


Do you have pics on the internal memory? You must format the internal memory with no card in the camera. Then, format the card.

I have a Toshiba 8 GIG memory card. I used it


When you removed the card from the computer, did you remember to use the "safely remove hardware" procedure? Also, you should never wait until your card is full before downloading...you run the risk of the card becoming corrupted. Your options now...1. Get a separate card reader and see if you can download your pics with it.2. If not, take the card to a store like Walmart that has a Kodak Picture kiosk machine. Insert your card and you should be able to see all your pics. From there, you can make a cd of them. Then, format your card in your camera to return it to factory specs.

Cant review pics on camera or computer, but camera says card is full


This occassionally happens with memory cards formatted using FAT. The simplest way for you to get the pics of the card when such a thing happens is to get a card reader. Pop the card in to the card reader, connect it to your PC and transfer the pics. Then format it using FAT32. I have noticed that my card was a lot more reliable in saving pics compared to FAT.

New camera won't work!


That message is probably because you have not saved any images in the camera's internal memory. Whatever pictures you took are on the SD card. Try taking a couple of pics using the SD card and try the review. If you are able to review, then all is well. If you cannot review, then one of 2 things:
1. Faulty SD card..Replace or format it.
2. Remove the SD card and take a pic. The pic will be saved in the camera's internal memory. If you still cant preview, probably a fault with the camera, and you'll need to service it.
