It's impossible. The KM Dimage S414 takes compact flash cards, but it was never designed to handle that high a capacity. The user manual does not state an upper limit, but from my own memory of your model the maximum capacity it could reliably handle was 512MB and with some brands of memory (Kingston for definite) it worked with 1GB.

There is no way around this: the limit is purely down to hardware limitations which existed when your camera was designed seven years ago. Your only fix is to obtain a compact flash card of preferably no greater than 512MB capacity, don't pay extra for cards which claim to offer speed advantages as your camera cannot take advantage of those benefits. You may be able to get one free if you look on your local FreeCycle/Freegle groups as many people will have these lying around unused after upgrading and they have no resale value.

I hope that my answer has been of assistance even though it's not quite the answer you hoped for. Please take a moment to rate the free answer which I have provided you with.

My c703 won't format a new memory card. The old memory card is full (2GB), but I've tried two NEW Lexar 4GB cards and neither will format. Help!


Hi, The reason neither 4GB card will format is because that camera is only able to support, at most, a 2GB card. I'd suggest returning the 4GB card and getting another 2GB one.

Hi sir
#1 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.

Loaded new memory card, and screen reads memory card error-memory card locked. Removed new card from camera, nnlocked card, inserted card again, but received same message. Please advise.


I'm guessing you bought a new 4GB SDHC card. Although it looks exactly the same as a standard SD card, the format the card uses is very different. If your camera is more than a few couple years old, it's likely it was designed before the SDHC format came out. Sorry, but a SDHC card will not work with older cameras.
For older cameras, you'll need to use standard SD cards (usually those 2GB or less). But if you really want to use a 4GB card, do a Google search for 4GB SD "non HC", with the non HC in quotes. Believe Transcend makes one.

I have a Kodak LS743 and am trying to put a new SD 4GB into it and it won't let me format it. WHY???


Hi,
Your Kodak LS743 camera is built to use the SD memory card standard - which only goes up to 2GB. Any SD card over 2GB is a new format called SDHC (high capapcity) and isn't compatible with the previous format. This is why you can't use your 4GB card - you have to use a 2GB card.
