If you have a SD memory card reader separate from your camera on your computer, try formatting the SD card from you computer.

    After reading the user manual for this camera, they only mention 2GB and 8GB SD cards in addition to the provided 32MB SD card. Although they don't explicitly state this in the user manual, the largest SD card that this camera can use may be 8GB. If the SD card you are trying to use is larger than 8GB, then there is a chance that it won't work with this camera

My camera keeps saying card error? It wont let me take pics or even look at ones already on the camera?.... Just keeps saying card error. What should I do??


Welcome to Fixya.

There are two possible reasons why your caemra keeps on displaying CARD ERROR.

First reason is not formatted for use in the camera. The solution there is you just have to format the memory card. In order for you to format the memory card you just have to click on this link and refer to page 89 in formatting memory card.

Second reason is memory cards need to be clean. You just have to clean it with soft and dry clothes. If the message is repeadted. That's the time that memory card needs to be replaced.

I hope this information give you a relief on your problem.
Thank you for using FixYa.

When i turn it on Memory card error comes up, i have changed cards, both cards worked fine before, cannot format card using camera as FORMAT is greyed out in menu and just skips over it.maybe needs reload...


Please have the memory cards checked on with another PC and if detected have the cards formatted. If so check your PC for any virus in the OS.
If there is no detection of the memory card then it is possible that the card detection slot reader is not contacting or a possible software error in the camera.

LG KC550 mico sd memory card bad format error


Hello tony_gibbs10,

Formatting the card in the phone will not help the problem. Sounds like the file format of the pictures is not compatible with the phone. Check the manual for compatible picture formats and verify that they match.

You can format the card in your PC by going into my computer right clicking on the icon for the memory card and then selecting format.

Post back with any questions or comments for further assistance. Thank you for choosing Fixya!

Card Error message


Your card may have become corrupted, there are good free utilities out there to save such files from corrupted memory cards, try DIR (Digital Image Recovery) that you can use with a computer card reader if the computer does not recognize your connected camera as an external hard drive. 

If you were able to recover your files, format the card in the camera, that should solve your problem using the card.

If the card cannot be recognized by the computer or formatting the card doesn't help, you may have a defective memory card, try another one.

If the card works otherwise but is still not recognized by the camera you may have a defective memory card connector or other camera motherboard problem, sorry.

Hope this helped...
