"No Card" prompt

I am getting the "No Card" prompt EVERY time I try to insert a memory card. The door closes correctly...but no card registers. I am inserting the card correctly and I have tried several different cards many times...and it is always the same. Any thoughts?

    With the help of the FixYa on-line consultant, I found the solution...simply cover the card with a double sized, thin piece of cotton cloth and insert the cloth-covered card in and out of the card slot several times. Remove the cloth and re-insert the card. It worked like a charm.



    The solution was no where as difficult or complex as many have suggested.



    I might also suggest to the commerical agents and consultants who are trying to be helpful...please read the written description of the problem more carefully and don't ask the author to do things that he or she has already told you have been tried. Give the author some credit for knowing the basic issues and how to read the manual. If they admit to you they haven't a clue or don't have a manual, then by all means walk them through the basic protocols.

Hey RustyFL,
This prompt should mean either there is no card in the camera or the card in the camera is not the right type of card or it is inserted incorrectly. Unless the card is inserted incorrectly it sounds like there might be a problem with your camera. Directions on how to insert the card are on page 24 of your camera manual, and I have included a link to a PDF download of your manual in case you no longer have it. You could also try cleaning the card contacts with an eraser or a cotton swab and some rubbing alcohol. If none of this works I would have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician. I hope this helps!

It sounds like either a firmware problem, or hardware problem...try downloading the proper firmware and if that doesn't work. then it's most likely the card reader of the camera....try taking it in to a camera repair shop.

Micro sd card too big for garmin gps nuvi 1450


A micro SD card is the correct memory card for the 14xx series. A 2 GB should be just fine. Some units can not handle a large memory SD card. This has nothing to do with the physical size however.

Are you sure it isn't a micro SD card that is inserted into a standard SD card adapter? A standard SD card is much larger and will not fit into the 14xx series. Look at the end of the SD card that does not have the gold pins and see if there is a ridge where the micro SD card may be inserted into the larger standard SD adapter. Using a fingernail, you can slide the micro SD card out from the SD card adapter. Also, the micro SD card will only insert one way. Try flipping it over and inserting it again, always with the gold pins facing the Nuvi.

My camera is giving me a "no memory card" sign, but the card is inserted correctly. I have taken it out, cleaned it, and put it back, replaced the batteries, and everything. However, to no avail....


If the camera displays Memory card error, No Memory Card, or takes an abnormally long time to write an image to the memory card, when a memory card is inserted or any of the above error messages, make sure that the card is inserted properly. For SD card, make sure that the card lock switch is in the correct position and not stuck in-between.Try formating the memory card ,if after formatting the card in the camera the error persists, try another memory card. If this occurs with only the one card it is likely that the memory card is defective, if the error persists over more than one card the camera may require service.

The camera beeps when we put the card in.


The images you take with your PDC 640 camera are stored on a removable 3.3V SSFDC or SmartMedia 2 MB memory card (also available in 4 MB and 8 MB). Note: You must insert the memory card before you can turn on the camera.

If camera beeps is enabled, the camera beeps if the card is not installed and displays the [ ] message on the Status panel.

To insert the memory card:
1. Make sure the lens cover is closed (the power is off).
2. Open the memory compartment on the side of the camera.
3. Insert the memory card into the slot (gold side of the card facing the front of the camera).
Make sure the card is pushed firmly into the slot. Note: The camera prompts you to format the memory card if it is not formatted. The camera displays the format menu on the LCD viewfinder. Press the button next to Format.
4. Close the memory compartment cover.

If you can, try using a different memory card. Else, your memory card contact terminals inside the camera may have become worn, causing the camera to not recognize the card once it is inserted.

What does no card mean? Thank you.


"No card" means that either
  1. You have not inserted a memory card
  2. The memory card is not formatted, or
  3. The memory card is damaged and therefore can't be read by the camera.
How to insert the memory card:
  1. Open the camera’s battery door by sliding it downwards.
  2. Insert the SD card into the slot as shown inside the camera’s battery compartment. The SD card can only be inserted one way.
  3. Press the SD card completely into the camera and then close the door. Open the door and press on the memory card if you wish to remove it.
Note: There is only one way to insert the SD memory card into the slot. Do not force the card into the slot. This may damage both the camera and the SD memory card.

Before you can use the card, it has to be formatted:
  1. Insert the memory card into your camera as described above.
  2. Turn the camera on by pressing the power button.
  3. Use the multi-select button to select the "SET" option.
  4. Press the right arrow button to set "System" then press down key to select "Format".
  5. The default option is ‘Format’. Select this option by pressing the OK button.
  6. Select "Yes" to format the card.
If all this does not work it might be that your SD card is damaged. Try to replace it with another one. If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

How to use the memory card reader


To access the memory card reader without using the software provided, follow the steps below. If no card is inserted, the green light on the card reader will be on.
Insert a memory card.
• Insert the card with the brand name label facing up.
• If there is an arrow on the card, make sure it points toward the printer.
• If needed, make sure you connect the memory card to the adapter that came with it before inserting it into
the slot.
Wait for the light located to the right of the slots on the printer to come on. The light blinks to indicate the memory
card is being read or is transmitting data.
• The printer recognizes one memory card at a time. If you insert more than one memory card, a message appears
on the display prompting you to remove all memory cards inserted.
• If a USB flash drive is inserted together with the memory card, a message appears on the display prompting you
to choose which memory device to use.
When reading of images is complete, the number of photos found appears on the display. Then you can make your selection and print. these are the types of memory card supported by you printer.

Genius G-Shot HD55 (camera) - How to get SD card working??


For Genius G-Shot HD55 you need to insert the SDHC card deeper into the slot until it clicks closed, like opening a pen, then when you want to remove it press it again until it clicks to release, like closing a pen. Your card is recognised after the deep click insertion and restarting the camera.
