If this is for the M20 camera, don't do it. The M20 uses SD cards. Any 4GB card you see is going to be an SDHC card. While SDHC cards will fit into SD slots, they will not work in them. For the M20 you need to stay with SD cards 2GB and smaller.

As soon as I switch on the cam, it says. your card cannot be used


Your cam can use SD/MMC/SDHC memory cards with a memory size ceiling of 4gb. You are getting this problem because you're either:
  1. using the wrong type of card.
  2. using a card with a capacity exceeding 4gb
To solve this problem, you need to buy a memory card with its specifications within those mentioned above.

How do you put your micro sd card in the computer?


if theres a slot for an sd card on your computer you need a micro sd card adapter. if it doesnt have an sd card slot you need to buy a usb memory card reader (making sure it takes a micro sd card first)

 

both are widely available in supermarkets/electrical outlets or on ebay/amazon/play etc and are very inexpensive.

Hi, i have problem with my z650 , i`ve had bought lately new sd card (high capacity) and camera just doesnt detect that. Can i do anything or i just have to buy some specific old type one? thanks. Seb


Your camera is incompatible with SDHC cards.

As it's a hardware incompatibility your only fix is to get a regular SD card. Although you may be able to find one up to the maximum 4GB, stick to a maximum of 2GB as most SD compliant devices were never actually tested with 4GB cards and so they often don't work.

Im unable to read a 4gb SD memory card on my card


The card reader was not designed to read the SDHC type cards. You will need to buy a new card reader that accepts SDHC

Hi. I own a Canon A530 digital camera. I need to buy anew memory card for it. I would like to know if I could use a 4GB SD card for it? Thanks in advance.


Unfortunately, no. If it's a 4GB card, it is an SDHC card, which uses a different protocol than the 'standard' SD card. The maximum capacity of the SD protocol is 2GB, which is what the A530 is compatible with. (The SDHC protocol came out after the A530 was introduced.)

My samsung E250 mobile will not accept my memory card


You should check your manual most probably your phone cannot work with SDHC micro SD card. The only thing you can do is buy a 2GB micro sd card.

MICROSD DONT WORK


Your computers SD card reader is more than likely too old. My computer is only a year old and was told it wouldn't work. I called PNY and they told me that I needed to buy either a 1GB or 2GB card or an SDHC external adapter. Of course it doesn't tell you this on the package, good luck!

Laptop wont recognize 4 gb sd card


We have 3 of the original 512Mb Disney MixMax players for the kids and, according to the specifications printed on the box, the largest memory card you can use is a 2Gb card, you cannot use a 4Gb memory card with a Mix Max. I have further tested this fact by trying to use a 4Gb card myself and it will not work no matter how I try to format it or anything else. I decided to be smart: read the information they give you with the product and don't try to add a memory card that's too big for the item's capabilities. You have no choice but to buy several 2Gb cards like we did and put them in a carrying case so the kids hopefully won't lose them.

My Pocket PC with a 4Gb Sd


Hi tHEyOs, Well I?ve been poking around and here are the facts I?ve found: -The largest SD memory card HP lists as an accessory is a 2GB card. -The actual specifications sheet states the SD slot supports SD, SDIO and MMC but makes no mention of any size limitation. My suspicion based on my own personal use of HP hand held PCs is that it will probably accommodate your GB SD memory card. In my own personal experience is that the devices list as accessories only those memory cards that were prevalent at the time the PC was released. So even though the HP site only lists 2GB as the largest its only because the larger cards didn?t exist in the marketplace at the time so it really isn?t any kind of indicator. To me the specifications sheet is the ultimate reference and it doesn?t make note of any type of imitation. If you are still apprehensive buy the memory from a mail order house like TigerDirect and tell them you want a 4GB SD module for an HP H2210 PocketPC. If it doesn?t work you can return it for a full credit. If you have any more questions let us know and please don?t forget to rate the posting.
