Yes, it's an option that is not included with the camera, so you need to buy one. I suggest a 4GB card for you.

SOURCE: when i insert my memory

Look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

Camera says out of memory won't let me take pictures. i cleared all the pictures out and still cant take pictures. What do you think the problem is?


I'm assuming you are trying to use an SD card in your camera and not the internal memory. I suggest you format the memory card if you are sure there is nothing on the card. Formatting the memory card deletes everything on the card and sets it up with a file system that your camera recognizes. Follow these steps to format your memory card using your camera. 1. Turn camera off 2. Insert memory card 3. Turn camera on 4. When the memory card is inserted in the camera, the [Format card] option appears in the setup menu 5. Choose Format to format the entire card. Don't choose Quick Format 6. Wait until your card is formatted
After formatting your memory card, try turning your camera off and on and you should now be able to take pictures to your memory card.
P.S. If you remove your memory card you can choose Format Memory from the setup menu to format the camera's built-in internal memory

Why show me ;full memory; I have just 2-3 pictures on this cam


You do not say which camera it is, but generically, it may well be that the camera does not contain a separate memory card (yet - have you put one in correctly?), or the default "save to" option is pointing at internal memory rather than the inserted memory card.

Do you have the instructions the camera came with? If not, please state make and model of camera, and we can find a set of specific instructions for you.

How do I format my SDHC card


First, you need to state the specific camera model, and also try to read the user's manual regarding on how to format your SDHC card properly. But most of the time it is simply done by inserting your SDHC card into your digital camera, switch it on. Go to the main menu then go to settings, and browse/scroll it until you find the option 'FORMAT MEMORY CARD'. Press okay and it will automatically format your SDHC memory card.

  • Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from Amazon.com or Buy.com
  • 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
  • 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  • 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  • 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
  • 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

    Hello,
    The camera does not recognize the card because

    1. Card not compatible
    2. Camera cannot handle such a large capacity.
    3.Card not inserted correctly.
    Maybe a recent firmware update can address the 2nd limitation.

    Hope it helps.

    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.

    Memory Card


    They tricked you. The picture in the guide is of an SD card, but the card that came with the G9 is an MMC card. On both, there is a row of brass-colored contacts along one edge. This is what looks like ribbing in the guide. These contacts should go into the camera first. The memory cards will only seat if they are inserted correctly, so if it goes in far enough to close the cover, you have it in right.
