Question about DXG Technology DXG-518 Digital Camera

SD card rejection

My DXG-518 is rejecting the SD card I put in it. When the card is in the camera properly, it will turn on and then immediately turn off again. I cannot access any of the menus or even take pictures or videos when the card is in, but if I remove the card, it works fine. I am using a 2GB SanDisk SD card, and it's brand new. The camera is also fairly new - I got it just a few months ago, but this is the first time I've tried to put an SD card in it. It has brand new Energizer Alkaline batteries in it.

I have seen SD cards go defective. Also, enquire to the manufacture of the camera or at least the dealer to make sure that the model of SD card that you have is compatible. I have seen compatiblity issues with particular SD card types on specific models.

Camera says card locked

SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

My computer will not recognize or detect my dxg 518 camera at all, it won't even let me install it. What do I do?

First thing is don't panic, what most likely is the problem is that your computer operating system is beyond the camera software capabilities. So, some new computer laptops and desktops already come with a SD card reader. If your computer doesn't have this little reader then one can be purchase and plug into a USB port. This will step around the camera because you remove your SD memory card from the camera and insert it into the card reader. The computer will look at this as a mass storage device. For there you would create a folder in "My Documents" and put the picture files in that new folder. Now most newer computer will have some type of image software that comes with it. failing this or the progrtam is a bit antiquated I'd suggest strongly in purchasing an entry level Photoshop program. What this will do then is allow your to open the picture folder select an image and do with it pretty well anything you want. I might add also it will let your do stuff to the picture files far beyond the camera software.

Bonus of all this is that you can pretty well us any camera with this system because it is not proprietary.

I use Fujifilm, Nikon, Canon and a Pentax digital and all the pictures files go through a card reader to the computer where they are opened in Photoshop.

Cheers have fun with it

How to i load pictures from camera dxg 518 to my laptop

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa ( ).

SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

DXG-565V Flash Media Camcorder: my DXG -565V Flash Media Camcorders sd slot wont e...

There is a spring that puts pressure on the SD card. It is most likely stuck.

You will need to fish around with a straightened paperclip, but be careful not to bend anything or the slot won't work properly any longer.

this has happened to me a few times and it's always the same fix...the spring is jammed and needs to be coerced back into place.

Hope this helps!

I recently bought a SanDisk 4GB SDHC card for my DXG-572V. I put it in the camera, and I turned the power on. A screen comes up saying "Format Card?". I have tried selecting both "Yes" and "No", but...

Your problem is that you are trying to use an incompatible memory card.

The DXG-572V is not SDHC compliant and will only work with regular SD cards. In theory it's compatible up to 4GB but in practice there are few standard SD devices which work well with standard SD cards above 2GB.

Memory Error

Try removing your SD card or using a different one. I let Windows XP delete all the pictures from my card after uploading them and now my 518 doesn't like the card....I don't know why though.

The problem usually relates to using an SD card that is too high in capacity. THE DXG 518 only supports SD cards up to 1 gig in size.
