Having gone over five months without a response, I assume my suggestion to use a card reader solved the problem.

I took photos in a larger canon camera with a 4g SD card, then tried to view in the same camera (as above) and 'error' came up, now the photos I took are gone even when I put SD card into laptop... Im...


I have had success with this... Download this camera photo recovery program called asoftech photo recovery
http://www.asoftech.com/apr/

You have to use a card reader either on your computer or an external USB card reader. Put the card in the card reader, open the recovery program, then select the drive where files are deleted, then press "Start" and wait for it to do it's magic.

If needed, you may format (use quick format) the memory card and then use asoftech photo recovery to recover your files.

Please describe your why do i get an error when i try using the sd card in my gatewayDCT20 camera


Usually when you see errors with the card it will be due to a few things. The card is bad or corrupt, the card is the wrong type, or the camera has a fault.

Usually the problem is the card (9 out of 10 times). The cards may need to be formated before use or if they go bad to correct them. If the camera won;t give you the option then try doing this on a laptop or using a card reader and try again. Usually card errors are from bad shut downs or running out of power while taking pictures. Sometimes the card is is dead and won't be fixed by reformatting so you can only replace it. (Don;t toss it as it might work in a laptop).

If the card is too big or the wrong speed some cameras will give an error. Not much you can do about this other than getting a new card. Nothing wrong with the card its just not compatible.

If you have this problem with several cards then the camera itself may be at fault. Unfortunetly that usually means repairing the camera or replacing it. Replacement is usually cheaper.

I have tried a new sd card for more memory and it reads card error with every new card i try i've tried 3 different cards now and the original still works so i know the reader works but it just doesnt...


You won't be able to use a card larger than about 1GB (maybe 2GB) in this camera. "SD" cards larger than 2GB are actually SDHC cards. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but they are slightly different electrically. Many cameras won't work with SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

Camera reads communication error when trying to upload photos what might be the prob


I BELIEVE THE REASON IS THE TYPE OF SD CARD.
THERE ARE SD AND SDHC. IF YOU ARE USING SDHC.
I BET THE ONE CARD THAT DOESNT READ IS AN HC. THIS IS ALSO TRUE WITH OLDER CARD READERS. I HAVE AN OLDER AND NEWER CARD READER.
I JUST HAPPENED TO PUT AN OLDER SD CARD IN MY NEW POWERSHOT SD1300 AND IT READS FINE, ALL NEW CARDS SDHC WONT READ.
I BELIEVE SD IS UP TO 2GIGS AND SDHC IS 4GIGS AND HIGHER.

A memory card in a digital camera can be read in the camera but not in the computer


My guess is that you have an SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) card in the camera, but the card reader attached to your computer can read only the older SD cards. SD cards that are 4GB and larger are SDHC types, and should have SDHC prominently displayed on the label. The card reader on the other hand, was probably made before the SDHC type cards were ever made.

You can find a new card reader that support the high capacity cards for under $20 in many places. Unfortunately, the older card readers can not be upgraded to read the newer cards - but the SDHC readers can read the older SD types.

Sd Card reader not recognising SDHC cards


When You Insert your SD card into the internal card reader, then the SD card is not recognised by the system and the SD card drive doesn't show there. The problem can be because of driver issue, system issue and device issue.
To fix the problem you need to go at device manager if there is a yelllow sign in SD card controller, the problem is most probably caused by a driver issue. Then you need to update the driver. You can also download the driver for your card reader.
Also, check if your SD Card is broken. You can also check it into different devices port.
If it is detected then you can backup of your data.

If the problem not resolved by any means and you require you SD Card data then I will suggest you read - https://www.stellarinfo.co.in/services/removable-media-recovery.php

Memory card error


I think I know this one. This camera cannot read SDHC (High Capacity) memory cards - it can only read regular SD cards. Try using a standard SD card and see what happens.

Communication error


If your SD memory card contains more than 1,000 images, the camera will display "Communication Error". Use a card reader (if available) to import your images into the computer, or see about having some CD's made at a photofinishing business.

Message: Memory Card Error - Memory Card Parameter Error on 4gb SDHC card


I have been rummaging around trying to find two solutions: 1) to get my Toshiba Satellite card reader to read SDHC cards and 2) to get my desktop USB ports to read SDHC cards. While MS offers a hotfix for XP, it does not always work because of the different Chip Sets in computers. I have also read where posters say that the SDHC card works in the compter NOW, but NOW will not work in the camera... and the SDHC card NOW works in the camera but will NOT work in the computer.... I found a tekkie article that may help clear the air... SDHC cards are formatted in Fat32x (NOTICE the "x") and SD cards are formatted in Fat32 (no 'x') and these compatibility problems arise when the user unwittingly or unknowingly RE-formats the SDHC card, either when it is put in the computer and won't read or when it is put in the camera and won't read... but just don't bother to mention that THAT is what they did upon inserting the card and only proceeded to complain about an apparent incompatibility. The camera or computer might even mislead you asking if you want to format the card..... but all is not lost. The Panasonic site gives a program AND a pdf instruction book on How To ReFormat an SD or SDHC card specifying the proper Fat32x or Fat32 format. Hope this helps.
