The A520 is designed to work with SD cards. Your 8GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the camera it will not work. You need to stay with SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

My 2gb san disk gets 'system error' after just two pictures. Works fine with the 16mb disk that came with the camera, so I figured it was just the 2gb disk that was damaged. All the san disks currently on...


Download any pictures you have on the "new" memory card to the computer. I'm sure the card memory lock us in the unlock position or you wouldn't have got this far.

Anyway once the pictures have been downloaded to the computer hard drive do a proper disconnect or eject, safely remove device (different computers use different language for the same darn thing) in short shut off the link before disconnecting the memory card from the computer. Once this has been done and the memory card is back into the camera format the card. Formatting is necessary for any new card to program it to the camera it is going to be used in. Also after each download of pictures from a memory card to the computer eject (properly shut it off) and then format the card again. This give the camera a clean medium to perform at it's optimum and place clean new pictures on the memory card. Okay for the larger cards I ran into this with my pro camera and needed to connect to the manufactures web site and download updated firmware once that was done I was able to feed 8gig card into my camera. I full suspect that if you go to Konica/Minolta web site that you will be able to download camera firmware updates. It's just amazing what this will do for the performance of the camera pro or consumer type. Have fun hope this was a help

Memory card error message


Cards are coming in different formats and it might be possible that you brought a card which is not suitable or functional with your camera. The other reason could be that we are having options to lock our memory card in digital camera and you might have taken out your earlier card without unlocking it. The system might be broken from inside and this could be a reason that you are still getting a message that memory card is locked. It seems possible based on problem you are sharing.

Brought a new memory card and it wont format keep saying error


Hi mr .
  • Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from Amazon.com or Buy.com
  • 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
  • 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  • 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  • 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
  • 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

    2GB SD card is brand new but camera says it is full.


    Some of the older cameras will not take the bigger cards. You can use the bigger card with your computer to store your photos.

    San disk ultra II won't show up on computer


    You'll have to go to Sandisk.com to verify this for your specific model, but... the problem is that some firmware versions won't recognize over a 2GB card. There may be a firmware update available. Find your product on the site using search, and then look for software updates. Don't hesitate to call techsupport (866-726-3475).... usually NOT a long wait, they speak clearly and they're polite.

    Previous solution is the FAIL. Original poster says it works fine in _camera_, but not in _printer_. _Printer_ is the compatibility issue, not camera.

    Can't initialize SanDisk Ultra II for S7000


    try formatting it in the computer, then initializing it in the camera.
    It's possible that the camera can only handle memory up to 1Gb. Try a 1g CF card.
