Question about Cameras

1 Answer

I have the above camera and am wanting to take it abroad. I have an 86B SDHC memory card which I have always used with it and yet, today, when I checked everything was working and turned camera on, it said 'Pictures will be recorded to in built memory'. I have never had this problem before and am going on hol on Tues so I need this fixing. Please help!

    I have already tried this solution and it made no difference. What is troubling me is that the memory card works in another camera (a far less better one) but not the one I have always used it in. Even with the memory card and internal memory wiped, it still comes up with the same message.

If the camera was used once without the card it will cause problems, remove the SD card from the camera, go to menu and locate "format" follow the prompt to erase all pictures in the internal memory, when that is done replace the memory card back in the camera for normal operation.

    This solution has never failed until now, the only other idea that I can think of is remove the rechargeable battery and SD card for 60 seconds to reset the processor ic in the camera, if this fails there is a problem in the systems control board which controls vital areas of the digital camera and consideration should be given in replacement.

What is the maximum size sd card (Gigabites)?


speed class choices.
about compatibility with host devices before choosing your card, it is important that you understand how to use your memory card to it greatest ability. sdxc memory cards and devices (digital cameras, video cameras, laptops, etc.) are now available. learn how to use your new sdxc memory card to optimize its performance.
confirm compatibility before inserting your sdxc memory card, confirm the device is compatible with the sdxc standard by locating an sdxc logo on the device or referring to the device's user manual or manufacturer information.

understanding backwards compatibility
  • sdxc memory cards must only be used with sdxc devices.
  • sdxc devices can use sd memory cards, sdhc memory cards and sdxc memory cards.
  • sdhc memory cards can be used with sdhc devices and sdxc devices.
  • sdhc devices can use both sd memory cards and sdhc memory cards.
  • sd devices can only use sd memory cards.

I get the message 'protected card' Next trick?


There are several possible causes for "memory card locked/protected", "memory card error", or "no memory card". The most common cause is having the tiny slide switch on the side of the card in the wrong position. The second most common is trying to use a 4GB or higher SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. There are also other common causes if the above didn't help, with troubleshooting steps for this problem listed here.

Hi, got new kodak camera and 4gb memory sd inside. i only took 8 pictures so far and said internal memory full. i dont understand why? i want to keep 8 pictures and it should be plenty as using 4gb and...


4GB "SD" cards are almost always actually SDHC (high capacity) cards. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but they are slightly different electrically. Many cameras won't work with SDHC cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

So your camera is not able to use the 4GB card, and is ignoring it and using internal memory only. That memory is tiny and won't hold many pictures, and when it is full, the camera cannot work at all. You need to delete the pics in the internal memory and get a memory card your camera can understand (2GB or less).

Maybe it is having trouble with the size of the memory. Memory cards have grown enormously in capacity in the last couple of years, and even relatively new cameras may not be able to cope with the memory size of the newest cards. It is often difficult to find out the maximum capacity a camera will use, as today's memory cards are much larger that those available when the manual for the camera was written.

SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but many cameras won't work with the SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible. If the card you are trying to format is above 2GB, it will be an SDHC card.

Try changing it to "No". I always have trouble figuring out whether highlighted means light or dark on these menus.

If it still doesn't format, maybe you are using a memory card with too high a capacity. Memory cards have grown enormously in capacity in the last couple of years, and even relatively new cameras may not be able to cope with the memory size of the newest cards. It is often difficult to find out the maximum capacity a camera will use, as today's memory cards are much larger that those available when the manual for the camera was written.

First, make sure your camera can accept SDHC cards. If the camera says the card is locked, move the slide switch on the side of the card.
