Question about Jazz JDC64 Digital Camera

1 Answer

I need to salvage older jdc64 4.0 megapixel camera that does NOT recognise 2gig memory cards. a store had an old "type sd" memory card they use for diadnostics behind the counter that was rated in megabytes on which I was able to save images. But it was not for sale. And the camera does NOT recognise the 2 gig cards I can get... Is there a firmware upgrade somewhere or something???

    OK I managed to get a 1 gig card... «I had thought my only source would be to order it on-line (since the stores don't have anything less than 2 gig anymore) Which, if it didn't work, would have cost to much to ship back to be worth returning it, so I didn't want to go that route without knowing the durned camera would work with a 1 gig card...» But I found sombody with a used one that was willing to trade up for the 2 gig I had... And long story short: It worked!

Since this digital camera is an older model, it probably isn't compatible with 2GB memory cards. Older electronic devices including card readers, camcorders, MP3 players and even older laptops with built-in card readers won't be able to use higher-capacity cards. Try using a 1GB memory card in your camera and if it works, then 1GB is the maximum size of memory card you can use on that camera.

Testimonial: "Once I obtained a 1 gig SD memory card (Swapped somebody for the 2 gig I could get) It turned out just like Speedypeed said. good call... "

    Thanks for the suggestion but the problem is that nobody seems to be selling sd camera memory cards with less than 2 gig anymore. AND I not that I did a google search for my camera and found that the current "specs" for the exact same model number and megapixal size, (as listed in the on-line sales info) say my camera is supposed to handle a 2 gig card. That's why I trhought the new ones must have had a firmware upgrade. But I cant find where to download it if it exists...

Why is my camera going round and round in circle when trying to format my memory card?


I'm suspecting that you are trying to use a new 4GB or larger SDHC card with your older model camera. Please note that your model camera can only use 2GB or less standard SD cards (and NOT SDHC). 2GB SD cards are inexpensive, and still available on Amazon.com if your local store no longer carries them.

How to Format A Memory Card Using A Computer


If you are having problems where your camera or other device will not format or recognise your memory card, this is often because the card has become corrupted or the device is an older type and does not recognise the file system of the card.

You should always format your card with your camera or device (not your computer) every time you need to do this. This prevents the possibility of data errors and corruption.

However, if your device is refusing to format or will not recognise the card you can often resolve this by getting your computer to format it for you.

This often helps the camera or device recognise the card and make it functional again. If a format on your PC fails and the card is still not recognised then the card is either faulty or in the case of a camera exceeds your cameras max capability. In this case you will have to use a new card or one with a lower memory capacity.

If you have a card reader on your PC this is the easiest way to access the card with the computer. If not, a multi card reader is a cheap and useful device to have.

Be aware that formatting the card erases all information and or photos stored on it.

To format the card with your PC do the following:

1) Insert the card into the card reader.

2) Go to 'Start' - 'My Computer' and then find the card icon which will show as 'SD Card Drive' or 'Compact Flash Drive' or whatever card type you are using.

3) Right click on the relevant card icon. you will be presented with a list of options. Go down to Format and select this option.Now select a File system type.

PLEASE NOTE: Select FAT32 for 4GB or higher capacities. FAT for 2GB or lower capacities

4) Click start to begin the format process.

5) When the process is complete, take the memory card out and insert it into your device. If the procedure was successful the device should recognise it and it should work.

Note: Old cameras
Many previous old cameras and portable devices do not work if the card is formatted as FAT32 or NTFS file system. One of the following errors may occur if your device does not support FAT32 or NTFS:
- Error message asking to re-format the flash card.
- Error message that the flash card is not formatted.

To resolve the above error, backup your data and reformat your memory card in FAT file system

Sd card is 32m it is only giving 12 images


A 32mb SD card doesn't have a large capacity - depending on the resolution (megapixels) of the camera, a different amount of pictures can be stored. Below is a link to a page that can help you determine what size is right for you.

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!...


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

Message says can't read card, even when I put a new card in. How do I fix it?


Your camera is programed for SD memory cards from 8MB through to 2gig if you have put a SD card in the camera larger then 2gig it can't read it. If you are under the 2gig maximum then it's possible the SD card is in the lock position. At the top left corner there is a little white slider type switch make sure this switch is pushed forward to the top of the card in the direction of the gold contacts. Also a new card will need to be formatted for the camera to read the card properly. See page 11 screen shot I have provided for correct card installation.

Also page 12 for the formatting of the memory card.

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.

New xd picture card compatability with olympus d-395


Check the maximum capacity memory card that your older camera will take. My Fuji will only take up to a 2gig card unless I flash the firmware in the camera to take the newer 4gig cards. Some of the older cameras maxed out at 1 gig or less. Check eBay for smaller capacity cards as they are getting hard to find in stores.

2GB SD card is brand new but camera says it is full.


Some of the older cameras will not take the bigger cards. You can use the bigger card with your computer to store your photos.

Message: Memory Card Error - Memory Card Parameter Error on 4gb SDHC card


I recently bought a DMC-TZ3 and have been researching memory cards. Several sites sell cards with the camera and list the card type. I would suggest buying one of these cards. Any cards larger than 2gb must be SDHC type SD cards. There appear to different types of SDHC cards, 1.0, 1.1 and 2.0. Check out Wikipedia.org for a description. 2.0 cards are not compatable for devices developed prior to 2.0 so that may be the reason for the camera problem. So far I haven't seen anything that states what type SDHC card the camera requires. I found a computer memory site that that sells memory that they say will work. There may be others.
