Memory card error

I have purchased x3 new memory cards. When inserted into the camera I ger the message Memory card error. I do not get this message when the cards are inserted into a different camera. When trying to reformat the card the reformat option is greyed out. The tabs on the cards are in the correct position

    How big are your new memory cards? The SD550 was designed to work with SD cards. If your cards are larger than 2GB then they're actually SDHC cards. While SDHC cards will fit into SD devices they will not work in them.

Having gone over a month with no response, I assume it was just a matter of SD versus SDHC cards.

Memory card Sandisk 4GB gives error memory card


The S50 uses SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card, and will not work in the S50. You will have to confine your choices to cards 2GB and smaller.

Memory card error with new memory card


Hi there, welcome to FixYa.

Let's work on the camera first.
1) Turn the camera off and remove the battery and the card.
2) Put the battery back in without the card and turn it on.
3) Turn the camera off and insert the CF card.
4) Turn the camera back on again.
See if that takes the message away.

If it doesn't leave me a comment and we go to step 2.
If it does, thanks for coming to FixYa.

CAMERA READS -CARD ERROR-AFTER INSERTING A NEW MEMORY CARD


First, make sure that the new memory card does not have the protect tab in the lock position. The new card must be unlocked and formatted before your camera will be able to use it. Also, make sure that the size card that you have purchased has not over shot the ability of your camera. I think that a 2 GB card is as large as you can use. Just because the card fits into the slot does not mean that the camera will address it!
