Hi,
This means the your memory card slot (i.e. part in which we put the memory card in cam) has stopped functioning. So get it serviced....
Hope this has helped you... Thanks

When I insert a memory card into my pentax camera, I am getting a memory card error message. There are pictures on the memory card. The card works when inserted into another digital camera.


Hello

Ok, here is something that just might work.

In your case the problem is not with the card but rather with your camera's card reader. This is a rather hard problem to fix yourself but here is what you can do.

Open the card slot of your camera and peer inside with a sharp light or torch. You should see a little metal tab or switch inside the card slot. This is the write protection switch. Contrary to popular belief , the switch on the card does not impact the operation of the card itself but rather tells the camera that the card should be locked by depressing the little pin inside.

If you put a protected card into a camera with no protection switch , the card would operate normally.

However , with time and repeated use , the switch will start to bend slightly until it will no longer depress when a unlocked card is inserted.

With a toothpick or needle , slightly and very gently push this tab up a little bit. (some camera's will require you to pull the tab down), This will allow the switch to operate once again and should solve your problem.

Kind Regards
Andrea

Memory Card error message


The K100D works with SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot is is electronically incompatible.

Memory card error when I turn on camera


oops.. looks like many card errors, as just now i gave reply to 2

Test the memory cards using external card readers connected to computer/laptop and see if it works.
If it doesn't, then it can be formatted from computer and tested on Pentax again.

If still it doesn't work on Pentax then it can also be a small issue of contacts inside attracted dust. You can try using blower to clean dust if any in the place you insert the memory card and try again.

If it doesn't work then it it needs visit to some experienced person/technician/mechanic.

Memory card size


The S5z is limited to SD cards, 2GB and smaller. The speed doesn't matter, but larger cards will not work in this camera.
