Is it a SDHC card? SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but many cameras won't work with the SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

You could try formatting the card. There is a function in the camera menus to do this. If it won't format then it may simply be too high capacity. It is often difficult to find out the maximum capacity a camera will use, as today's memory cards are much larger that those available when the manuals for even recent cameras were written.

Memory card error


Make sure you're using SD cards. If the cards are larger than 2GB then they're actually SDHC cards. While they fit in the slot they are electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

When I put fully charged batteries in my camera and turn it on the screen works fine. However, when I install any picture card and turn the camera on it gets stuck at the Pentax Optio screen. I will stay...


I have to say that you are probably using the wrong SD card. Or the memory card is to big and the camera cant handle all that memory space. I recomend that you try a 512mb San Disk SD Card. Dont mistake this for any card. Dont use a San Disk SDHC card. Do this and make sure your batteries are charged and you should of solved your problem. Good-Luck.

After i turn on my Optio E10, it shuts off right away even after i put in new batteries.


Sounds like a memory card problem. Try using A 512mb San Disk SD Card. Not a San Disk SDHC card. see if that doesn;t help you out. Good-Luck

Does the Pentax Optio 55 take the scan disk 8gb sdhc memory card.


NO! its maximum is 2gb. Also using high capacity cards slows the recovery down between shots, stick to smaller value cards for speed of access
