Were these cards from another camera and now you want to start using them in the Lumix? If so, you must format the card in the Lumix to get it to work. This will erase the card so download any pics first.

Testimonial: "One thing I forgot to include was that I can't format the card in the Lumix camera because whenever I turn it on all the camera will display is the "MEMORY CARD ERROR..." message, ie I can't do anything else. Thanks for your help. Any other suggestions?"

SOURCE: How big a memory card can you put in a DMC-FZ20

An 8GB card is not SD, but SDHC (High Capacity). SDHC cards fit the same slot as SD cards, but they are slightly different and many cameras do not work with them.

I have a DMC-FZ20 myself, and use a 1GB card. That is really plenty of space. If you want more (going on holiday?) then just carry a couple of spares. The manual doesn't mention memory cards larger than 1GB. Probably there weren't any when it was written.

SOURCE: I am locked out of

Why does my camera say "Card Locked" or "Write Protected"?

The basics. In the same way that the recordings on audio cassettes and VHS tapes could be protected by breaking off the little tab on the back corner, the material on a memory card can be protected against being overwritten. Instead of a tab to break off, write protection is done by a tiny slider on the edge of the card (opposite the cut corner). Before the camera will take pictures, it's necessary that this slider on the card operates a microswitch in the camera, which it will only do if it's NOT in the 'lock' position. The slider actually does nothing inside the card, which is why I don't call it a 'switch' even though it seems like one. Its only purpose is to be detected by the microswitch in the camera's slot, and it's the camera that takes care of the write protection, not the card.

Diagnosis.
Obviously the first thing to do is to check that the slider is NOT in the lock position. If the camera is giving you this error in the unlock position, it means that the slider has failed to operate the microswitch, or that the microswitch itself is faulty, or possibly that there's some file system error with the card. To diganose the problem, it would be really helpful if you could try two or more different memory cards in the camera and see if just one, or all of them exhibit the problem.

If only one memory card exhibits the problem: In this case, it's clearly something to do with the memory card. Is the slider worn, bent or missing? A missing slider will write protect the card in the same way that sliding it to the 'lock' position will. There's another possibility. I've recently discovered that
some cameras which use xD-Picture cards also give this error even though those cards don't even have lock sliders! Furthermore, some users have reported fixing this error by reformatting the card. Therefore, I feel it's also possible that your error may be fixed by reformatting. Before you do this, make sure that you've copied all you want off the card and then use the camera's 'format' function to reformat the card. I advise using the camera for the format function because this guarantees the correct file system. If you use your computer to format it, you may easily get the wrong one. However if you need to do it this way, see which file system is currently in use on the drive before you start. Go to "My Computer" and right click on the drive which is the memory card, and choose "Properties". Examples of filesystems are "FAT" (probably FAT16), "FAT32" and NTFS; to make sure your reformat is successful, ensure you use the same filesystem as before.

If some memory cards work, and others don't, or the same cards sometimes work but only sometimes:
The slider is really tiny, so it's possible that the number of people reporting this error is caused by lack of precision in manufacturing sizes. It must be hard to make a microswitch that can feel such a small thing. Does a better brand of card work? Can you bear to simply stick to the better brands, or the ones that work most reliably? As a remedy of last resort, you could try wrapping a small strip of sticky tape over the slider to increase its thickness, but I think this is a risky solution. There's a risk that the tape will come off in the slot and cause even more problems, or that the tape will be so thick that the card will jam in the slot and you'll have trouble getting it out.

If all of your memory cards behave in the same way: In this case, it's clearly something to do with the camera. It could be that the microswitch is broken, or there's some software error. Although it's less likely, let's cover the software error first; please find the 'system reset' function in your settings menu and use it to clear everything. Any good? If not, try the sticky tape solution in the last paragraph in the hope that it's a size/fit problem with operating the microswitch, but if that fails we're out of options really, beyond a repair of that microswitch.

How do you delete multiple images from camera?


Are the pictures on a memory card? In that case, you're much better off formatting the card. If you continue to delete unwanted pictures, you'll fragment the card and ultimately you'll have problems. Every day somebody posts here with that problem. Formatting cleans things up.

If the pictures are in internal memory, select Internal Memory Tool from the Setup menu, and you can format the internal memory, deleting all the pictures. My earlier comments hold true here as well.

If you insist on keeping some pictures and deleting others, then go into the index (thumbnail) mode. Press the trashcan button, then select [Select] with up/down, then press *. Select images with the arrows, then press * to display the delete indicator on the selected pictures, Press the trashcan, select [OK], then press *.

How to delete images off a sandisk extreme 3 2.0gb compact flash%3F


Pop your memory card into your card reader, wait about 15 secs and it will appear on your computer as a drive. Double click on this drive and you will see either a lot of icons corresponding to the photos on the card or a lot of thumbnail pictures of the photos. Again right click on the drive and click on select all on the popup box. When all the icons or thumbnails are highlighted left click on them and the click on delete on the next popup box. Whatever you do DON'T try to format the card with your computer. If you want to format a memory card for a camera always use the camera's format function to do so.

By the way, the photos can also be removed by using the delete function in your camera's menu display.

Make sure the record inhibit tab on the memory crd isn't activated. If it is you won't be able to delete anything.

Need to permanently delete thumbnails from camera card.


Sounds like you may want to permanently format the memory card while in the camera. This will remove all data that has been written to the card. Have your camera in shooting mode, go to menu and then down to Card tab or setup option and then go to Card Setup or Format option. Highlight Yes and press Ok. This will permanently delete all data from the memory card and you will not see the older images and will only see the newest ones from now on.

How do I transfer pictures from my computer back on to my camera? Is it possible to transfer pictures back to your camera from the computer?


This doesn't work for all cameras, but it does work for some cameras.

1) Make SURE you have all the photos in your computer.

2) Put the memory card into your camera and follow the camera's instructions to reformat the card.

3) Take 1 new photo on the memory card.

4) Put the memory card in the card reader on your computer. If you connect the camera directly to the computer instead of using a card reader, then do that now.

5) If your computer tries to automatically copy or move the photos to the computer cancel the process.

6) Use Windows Explorer (or Finder, if you use a Mac) and open 2 windows. In one window, navigate to the drive that represents your memory card. In the other window navigate to the location of your photos on your computer. This is usually in your My Pictures or Pictures drive under your user account.

7) On the memory card you will usually find the photo is in a subfolder, it may be several folders down. There may also be a thumbnail file. To copy files from your computer back onto the memory card so they can be seen in the camera you need to copy the files back onto the card using:

A) The same filename structure;
B) Include a thumbnail file if the camera creates thumbnail files
C) The file needs to be in the right folder structure (determined in step 7 above).

If your camera makes and uses thumbnail files but you don't have them on your computer, then you probably can't get the camera to recognize the files even if you copy them back onto the memory card in the right place.

Good luck!

My camera (Canon S400) says "Memory card Error" and will not allow me to take any pictures.


When a canon S400 displays a memory card error this means that it has experienced an anomaly. This means that you have to reformat the memory card. You can do this via the menu. Make sure that you backup the pictures on it using a CF card reader on your computer
