Memory card issue

I have tried using several different SD memory cards, but none of them work on my camera! Each time I try to copy video or pix to the card it says, "This function cannot be used". Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

First off what is the size of the mem card? Second did you make sure that you formatted the mem card with the camera before you tried to use it? What I would recommed is transfer your files to your computer FIRST. Then format the internal memory of the camera once you have transfered them over. Insert your memory card and then format the mem card. Turn the camera off and take your mem card out. Try taking a video. Turn off camera. Put mem card back in and see if you can transfer that video now and it should work.

What is the maximum size sd card (Gigabites)?


speed class choices.
about compatibility with host devices before choosing your card, it is important that you understand how to use your memory card to it greatest ability. sdxc memory cards and devices (digital cameras, video cameras, laptops, etc.) are now available. learn how to use your new sdxc memory card to optimize its performance.
confirm compatibility before inserting your sdxc memory card, confirm the device is compatible with the sdxc standard by locating an sdxc logo on the device or referring to the device's user manual or manufacturer information.

understanding backwards compatibility
  • sdxc memory cards must only be used with sdxc devices.
  • sdxc devices can use sd memory cards, sdhc memory cards and sdxc memory cards.
  • sdhc memory cards can be used with sdhc devices and sdxc devices.
  • sdhc devices can use both sd memory cards and sdhc memory cards.
  • sd devices can only use sd memory cards.

The best way to transfer pictures from a camera with an SD memory card is to do it outside the camera. If your computer does not have an SD card reader built in, you can buy an external USB card reader for $20 or less on E-bay, Amazon, etc. Remove the memory card from the camera and insert it in the card reader. Your computer will treat the card reader and SD card just like it treats an external hard drive. Either drag-n-drop or copy and paste your pictures from the SD card file to a file on your hard drive. If after you have copied and backed up your files you want to reformat your SD card, replace it in the camera and format it in the camera, not in the computer. SD cards formatted in a computer will often not work in your camera because of slight differences in the formatting.

ALTERNATE WAY TO TRANSFER PHOTOS AND VIDEOS TO A COMPUTER
If your photos and videos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos and to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.

Although no memory card specifications (except that it should be SD or SDHC or MMC card) is listed in the PDF manual, the problem most probably is that your card might be incompatible (I've personally experienced card's incompatibility with other digital cameras):
1) Borrow different SD or SDHC cards from your friends and try on your camera.
1) Check cards of different speed classes (number 2, 4, 8 or 10 inside a circle on the card): Normally if you have smaller SD cards (up to 2GB), it might suffice that card's speed class is 2. If you have larger SDHC cards (4GB and more), your camera might require a speed class of 4 or more. Or it may also happen that your card is too fast/big - some older devices don't work with too modern SD/SDHC cards. Read more about SD card speed classes>>
2) Check cards of different sizes. Some cameras my not work with too small or too large size cards.
3) There are plenty of fake SD/SDHC cards on ebay (mostly from China, with unidentified manufacturers/brands) which don't work with many devices and cause many errors. If there's a size and speed class written on such fake card - don't trust these numbers, they are probably fake.
3) If none of the different memory cards work - bring your camera to the mechanic
However, these requirements may vary from camera to camera. So ask about your Samsung L700 camera directly at Samsung customer support form>>
There are several websites where you can match your camera with compatible SD/SDHC cards:

Err 99 could mean several different things, such as... Memory Card, Lens or Lens contacts....
Here's what you can try:
Remove the memory card an enable "shooting with out memory card" and see if you still get the error. If it works your memory card is bad. Try another lens if you can. Clean the lens contacts with a pencil eraser (be careful not to get eraser dust in the camera body or in the lens). Worst case scenario is, Err 99 could be related to the shutter failing which would mean a trip to Canon.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Internal memory


Hi there.
Providing you have a SD memory card in the camera and the card is empty you can transfer all the data from internal memory to the SD card using the camera's menu.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Can't access photos on 2 GB SD camera card.


You may try some photo recovery software to rescue the files on your digital camera sd card, here are some for your options.

Photo Recovery (for Windows)
Photo Recovery for Mac

Be careful: Before your pictures are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the card in case the original files(your pictures) are overwritten.
