Problem with camera writing to memory card

I have an old Toshiba PDR-3300 that has rarely been used. Want to take it to Africa as a gift but cannot get it to capture and save a picture. It takes the photo and you see it captured immediately but it is not writing to the memory card. Any ideas? if not, I'll trash it -- it's old and not worth fixing

Try this first: pull the SD card from the the slot and hold it right side up with the label facing you, there is a short slot on the side with a sliding switch. move it to the other side of the slot and that will unlock the card. (it probably go moved as your were putting the card back into your camera) good luck!

Hi Lorinda,

There are a few different reasons why your camera may not be reading the memory card.

Troubleshooting such problems can be a little tricky, especially if no error message appears on your camera's screen.

The cause and solution may include one of the following:
    ·The card may not be the right type for the camera: First make sure the memory card you are using is compatible with your camera. For example, a SDHC memory card often will not work with older memory card readers. Even though SD memory cards are similar in size and shape to SDHC cards, they use different software for managing the card's data, meaning older readers sometimes cannot recognize the SDHC cards. Sometimes you can solve this issue by updating the memory card reader's firmware to give it the ability to deal with SDHC cards. Check the Web site of the manufacturer for your memory card reader to see if new firmware is available. It is also a good idea to check with your camera's manufacturer (on it's website) to see if an updated version of your camera's firmware is available.

    ·The card is not fully inserted in the camera. Turn off the camera, insert a card into the slot, then push to seat it.

    ·The card or a file on the card may be corrupt. Photo file corruption can occur when the battery power is too low when writing a photo file to the card, or when the memory card is removed while the camera is writing a photo file to the card. One way to check if it is the card or your camera is to try moving the memory card to a computer, then try accessing the photo file directly from the computer to see if the file actually is corrupted, or if your camera is just unable to read a particular file.
    You can also double check this issue by using another memory card in your camera and see if it works as it should. If the memory card is unreadable on any device, the next step is to reformat the memory card. Look through your camera's on-screen menus to find a "format memory card" command. However, keep in mind that formatting the card will erase all photo files stored on it. Some cameras just work better with a memory card when that memory card is formatted inside the camera. If you do reformat the card, make sure to let the process finish itself before removing the card. Removing a card during formatting may damage the card.

When i put my sd card in my camera wont turn on


The PDR-3300 works with MMC and SD cards. Your new 8GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work in the camera. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

I need a SD card and would like to know if there are any compatable SD cards fot the Toshiba PDR-3300. Thank you.


Any SD card will work. You don't need to specify a particular brand, and speed won't make any difference to the camera (though a faster card may speed up downloads via a card reader). Just make sure you get an SD card, not an SDHC card.

Lost memory card


Why can't you use a different card? Just put it in and format the new card in the camera.

Missing memory card


In all probability the memory card that came with your PDR-3300 was:

SD 8 MB Toshiba Memory Card.

SD cards with a much larger MB can be obtained at any large Drug Store, i.e. Walgreens, CVS, etc.

At the present time, these cards, 32 MB and larger are very inexpensive.
