I have the older version (about 18 months old) version of the Kidizoom camera. I have just bought an SD card which is an SDHC. The camera wont recognise it or let me change the default memory store. Help! Thanks, Lydia

Hi

SD and SDHC are different types of memory card. A camera designed to soley use the older SD type cards will not be able to operate with SDHC. Newer cameras can use both SD and SDHC cards but the chances are the Kidizoom will only work with SD cards.

Hope this helps

WHY WONT SANDISK SDHC WORK IN MY POWERSHOT A420


Your camera is designed to work with SD or MMC cards.
SD and SDHC cars look similar. But older cameras cannot recognize SDHC cards.
Use a SD card instead. (I know, the capacity is the problem!)

What type of memory card can i use for my vtech camera


The Kidizoom camera uses SD cards, which max out at 2GB in size. The Kidizoom Plus will take SD cards up to 2GB and SDHC cards up to 16GB. The brand won't make any significant difference. Neither will speed, so don't bother paying more for faster cards.

Camera reads communication error when trying to upload photos what might be the prob


I BELIEVE THE REASON IS THE TYPE OF SD CARD.
THERE ARE SD AND SDHC. IF YOU ARE USING SDHC.
I BET THE ONE CARD THAT DOESNT READ IS AN HC. THIS IS ALSO TRUE WITH OLDER CARD READERS. I HAVE AN OLDER AND NEWER CARD READER.
I JUST HAPPENED TO PUT AN OLDER SD CARD IN MY NEW POWERSHOT SD1300 AND IT READS FINE, ALL NEW CARDS SDHC WONT READ.
I BELIEVE SD IS UP TO 2GIGS AND SDHC IS 4GIGS AND HIGHER.

Will not format a 4GB SD card


The Kidizoom camera works with SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card (the HC stands for High Capacity). While SDHC cards will fit into an SD device, they will not work in them. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

I bought a 4GB Memory Card for my Samsung Digimax D53. I put it the camera and Try to format it, but it says CHECK SD CARD. I tried another 1GB memory card and it worked. I know that the problem is with my...


Your problem is that your camera only takes standard SD cards up to a maximum of 2GB. The card you have bought is likely to be a 4GB SDHC model. SDHC is a later development of SD; SDHC compliant devices can still use older SD cards, but SD-only devices cannot use SDHC. This is a hardware limitation so there is no way at all to use an SDHC card in your camera.

Note that if your 4GB card is definitely an SD and not an SDHC then it's still incompatible with your camera: very few standard SD devices were ever made with the firmware and hardware to handle the different memory addressing architecture used by the larger capacity card. Some cameras did have firmware updates to allow the larger SD card to be used, but yours is not one of them.

Your only fix is to sell your card (or keep it for another device) and to buy a regular SD card no larger than 2GB maximum capacity.

I trust that my reply has answered your question fully, please take a moment to rate my answer.

Loaded new memory card, and screen reads memory card error-memory card locked. Removed new card from camera, nnlocked card, inserted card again, but received same message. Please advise.


I'm guessing you bought a new 4GB SDHC card. Although it looks exactly the same as a standard SD card, the format the card uses is very different. If your camera is more than a few couple years old, it's likely it was designed before the SDHC format came out. Sorry, but a SDHC card will not work with older cameras.
For older cameras, you'll need to use standard SD cards (usually those 2GB or less). But if you really want to use a 4GB card, do a Google search for 4GB SD "non HC", with the non HC in quotes. Believe Transcend makes one.

What type of sd card do i need for the kidizoom camera?


The only thing you really need to bother with is that you need to make sure you get SD cards, 2GB and smaller. Anything larger is actually an SDHC card and won't work in the Kidizoom. Any of the major brands will work fine, and there's no point in paying extra for higher speed.

Communication error


If your SD memory card contains more than 1,000 images, the camera will display "Communication Error". Use a card reader (if available) to import your images into the computer, or see about having some CD's made at a photofinishing business.
