Question about Cameras

2 Answers

My E15 works Ok with my SanDisk 2 GB SD card and with my SanDisk 4 GB SDHC card. It also works without a card. When I insert another card and press the power button, it turns on, but all buttons are locked. The only way I can shut it off is to remove the battery. Cards that do not work: SanDisk 8GB SDHC, SanDisk 8 GB SDHC Utra, 4 GB PNY SDHC.

    Sorry. The model number of my pocket camcorder is Kodak Zi8. I misread the number on the front as E15 instead of EIS. I know EIS stands for electronic image stabilizer. I irritates me when they don't put the model number on a product. Anyway, the instructions for the Zi8 say it will take up to 32 GB cards, and I used an 8 GB SanDisk card when the camcorder was new. Now it won't take either of my 8 GB cards or a new 4 GB card. It freezes on, and I have to remove the battery to shut it off.

    Thanks. The camera is a Kodak Zi8. I misread the EIS on the front of it , and thought the model number was E15. I paid $100 for it, so it may not be worth fixing. I have a 4 GB card and a 2 GB card that work in it, so I'll just use those.

    Thanks. It's probably not worth replacing the board. I will just continue using the 2 GB and 4 GB cards that work.

Whatever is going on here is going to end up being at the card detection level, which means to repair it, the main control board would have to be changed out, and that would be an expensive fix. I couldn't find a model E15 on the net, and am uncertain what kind of camera this is, but they're all basically the same in construction, with the memory card holder soldered to the main board. You might be able to find an "as-is" camera on ebay with a broken lcd display, and swap out the main board to fix the problem.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

Some models camera does not support all sizes of SDHC cards. Its possible that you are limited to cards with a max capacity of 4GB SDHC only.

You might want to call Samsung customer support.

My lg does not read 2gb sd card.it tell me to insert a new one.Bt it can read 128 mb sd card


Your 2 Gb is not just an SD card, it is a SDHC card. The first 2Gb SD cards, still were SD, but 2Gb was the limit for the FAT 16 and 32 format and for the normal SD cards. The same happened with the hard disks. They developed the SDHC card, and made the new hardware downward compatible with the old SD cards. So in a new camera, you can insert SDXC, SDHC, SD and even MMC cards. But the cameras, card readers and phones, who were made for SD, can't use the SDHC or SDXC cards.
SDHC can work with memories up to 32 Gb and from that on, it is SDXC.
There still should be some 2Gb SD cards around, but not sure you still can fine one. The producers of memory cards now only make SDHC cards and up. Perhaps you only can get some 1Gb cards as SD card, but perhaps nobody will ever make these cards anymore.

I mannaged to buy a 4 GB SD card a few years ago, but that was the last I ever saw in the capacity. 25264488-uil2tdgcy05knvgzh4oup5lj-2-0.png

I just purchased a SanDisk 8 GB SDHC card for my Kodak EasyShareC743. When I inserted it, it said it needed to be formatted, I hit continue, then is said it would delete anything on the card, I hit...


The C743 works with MMC and SD cards, not with SDHC cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible. You need to go with cards 2GB and smaller.

New sandisk 8 gb sd card reports memory error when inserted in camera. other cards work in camera. card is recognized by laptop. tried reformatting by Vista


There are no 8GB SD cards. Cards this size are SDHC (High Capacity). SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but many cameras won't work with the SDHC cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

No. The DMC-FZ30 was designed to work with SD cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they do not work. You'll have to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Camera works with standard SD memory card, but not SDHC


There are hardware incompatibilities between SD and SDHC cards. They're upward compatible in that SDHC devices will accept SD cards but not the other way around. You will have to hunt down SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

SDHC Card 4 GB SanDisk will not format. get


The Z740 uses SD cards, not SDHC cards. SDHC cards will physically fit into the card slot but are not compatible. It's a hardware incompatibility, not updatable in firmware. You'll have to stay with 2GB and smaller SD cards.

Is lumix dmc-fx33 compatible with sandisk ultraII 8gb sdhc cards?


No, 8 GB is too large. According to page 5 of the manual, 4 GB is maximum:

•When the term card is used in these
operating instructions this refers to the
following types of Memory Cards.
– SD Memory Card (8 MB to 2 GB)
– SDHC Memory Card (4 GB)
–MultiMediaCard (still pictures only)
More specific information about memory
cards that can be used with this unit.
• You can only use an SDHC Memory Card
if using cards with 4 GB or more capacity.
• A 4 GB Memory Card without an SDHC
logo is not based on the SD Standard and
will not work in this product.

The manual can be had below:

4 GB doesnt work


I believe this camera only supports SD/MMC cards, not SDHC cards. Go to the kodak site to see the detailed specs. Not all devices support SDHC - most new ones do - but some only support the older SD cards.
