Question about Toshiba PDR-M700 Digital Camera

5 Answers

SD card size

Hi, I am wanting to upgrade the SD card that comes with my Toshiba PDR-M700 to increase the length of movies I can record.
The maximum card size referred to in the manual is 512 MB.
Does this mean this is the maximum card size the camera will recognize?
Basically, what I want to know is if I buy a 4 GB card, will it work in this older camera?

Thanks
Frankie

    Trying to upgrade from current 16MB in camera.Tried 516MB but LED Screen shows "Card Error'. Do you press any buttons to format new card? Haven't tried the 1GB yet if it works.

    I tried mine with a 1GB and screen shows: "This Card Cannot Be Used", so I guess it only goes up to 512MB. But, you can keep asking if someone knows. Good luck.

This camera only uses cards up to 512MB. In the back of the User Manual posted here, on about page 113, it states 512MB maximum. If a larger card is inserted, the LCD screen displays a message saying "This Card Cannot Be Used" with no explaination why.

Regardless of other attributes (brand, High Speed, SDHC, etc.) the largest card I have successfully used with my PDR-M700 is 512MB.

This is to clarify my post about the 516MB(should be 512MB). It now works. So 512MB must be the maximum?

cheers

It should work, when this camera came out there was probably no cards bigger than the 512 generally which is why it says that. If the 4GB doesn't work for some reason, it will still work in a newer camera later on so don't worry about wasting money on buying this.

have fun

You'd better find some local dealer and try. Newer SD cards use the new SDHC profile which is not supported by the camera. 1G and smaller cards should have no problem but even this largely depends on toshiba's programming ability. 4G and above probably would not work.

I cannot find an SD card to work I have tried a 1GB SD card and it will not work in my PDR M 500 digital camera why does it not work?


Hi,
I found a press release that the PDR-M500 cameras only support SD card sizes up to 512MB.
This was from June 2003 so this camera was quite an early one.
This was quite common in the early days to restrict the maximum card size the carmera could use.

Your camera is an old model and can't handle big memory card. Use only 128 or 256MB card in this model.

It sounds as though the drive gear is slipping... If you give up on trying to repair your camera I may want to purchase it for parts (my sister-in-law broke my LCD display)

PNY 2GB memory card


I have the same camera and bought a 4GB PNY SD card and it wouldn't work, so I read the manual :) The manual says, "SD Memory Cards having the following storage capacity can be used on your camera (Toshiba PDR-3330):
8MB, 16MB, 32MB, 64MB, 128MB, and 256MB"
Hope this helps! -Kim
