The message you are receiving seems to indicate that you need to FORMAT the card for it to be recognised by your camera. Your camera manual will provide instructions for you to do that. Hope this solves your problem.

Gateway digital camera DC-T50 5.25 megapixels put new memory card and a card error message appears


The camera uses SD cards. I assume your new card is 8GB, not 8MB as you stated. If this is the case, it's an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work in the SD-only camera. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.
You may download a copy of the manual here.

I just bought a new memory card (8gb) for my digital camera (Samsung NV10) and when I inserted the memory card, I kept getting "Card Error". It said I should format the new memory card and I tried to...


The largest SD card you can use in your Samsung NV10 is 2GB. thats why once you insert the 8GB sd card its shows card error or need to fromat.

FYI. for every digital camera there's a compatible memory card and you can see from the box or manual and Its writen SD or SDHC.

goodlukc and thank you

I have an 8G memory card that I cannot get formatted for a kodak easyshare DX7590 from a cannon format. What do I do? I've put it in the camera and told it to format it but it won't.


Get an SD card.

The DX7590 works with SD (and MMC) cards. Your 8GB card is actually an SDHC card and thus will not work. You'll have to stay with cards 2GB and smaller.

When i try to take pictures my camera says card locked.


It's the memory card or SD card you have in the camera. (it sounds like)
Try taking the SD card out and if you look at it closely there is a little switch/ thing you can slide. Slide it to the other side, put it back in your camera and try again. Hope that helps

SDHC card won't work


Your card is an SDHC, your camera supports only SD/MMC cards. I know this because i found thisp ostlooking for a way to make it accept SDHC cards, a software update could easily work in theory but someone would have to write that update. Technology changes fast doesnt it.

Screen displaying "out of memory"


OK, FIRST OFF THE CARD YOU BOUGHT, IS IT COMPATIBLE WITH YOUR CAMERA? IT'S NOT AN SDHC, IS IT? ALSO, DID YOU FORMAT THE CARD? THESE ARE POSSIBLE REASONS YOUR CAMERA IS NOT RECOGNIZING THE 8GB MEMORY. IF YOU FORMATTED IT ON YOUR COMPUTER IT PROBABLY WON'T WORK IN YOUR CAMERA. YOU NEED TO FORMAT IT IN YOUR CAMERA TO HAVE IT BE RECOGNIZED. DOES YOUR CAMERA WORK WITH THE OLD CARD AND NOT SHOW THE ERROR? ARE YOU SURE YOU HAVE YOUR CAMERA SET TO USE THE SD CARD AND NOT INTERNAL MEMORY? CHECK THROUGH YOUR MENU ITEMS FOR CHOICES. TRY THESE FIRST AND IF YOU STILL NEED HELP, REPLY TO: ARCLIGHT1217. IF THIS IS HELPFUL, PLEASE RATE, THANKS!

Bought 8gb memory card - error message


Hi, I suspect that the SD card is to big for that camera as that camera is a lower end camera. You should try the SD card in a camera that is known to be able to handle such a huge card.

Memory card


Unfortunately, the A520 does not support SD memory cards with more than 2GB capacity, and doesn't support SDHC at all. (1GB max for MMC cards.) I know memory is much cheaper than when the camera first came out, but in 2005 2GB was about as large as you could get.
