Digital camera SCHC card problem

Help- Our entire two week European vacation is on a 4gb Kingston SCHC card, which I bought along with a new Panasonic DMC-FS 3 camera just before the trip. I am unfamiliar with the HC format, but was told by the salesperson the Panasonic required the HC card. It worked fine during the trip. After the trip, I inserted the HC card into the card reader I have used for my SD cards and it did not read. I then reinserted the SCHC card into the camera and now I have a card error message and I cannot access the pictures at all, even through the camera. I am very worried. Advice is very much appreciated.

Hi - You need an SDHC reader for these high capacity cards.

See the Wiki entry here.

It is probable that your pictures can be recovered once you buy an SDHC reader. Try the following:

First do not panic! It is possible to recover your pictures if you take care. Take the card from the camera (powered off) and if it has a "write protect" tab then lock it now. Do not try and write anything to the card or you risk causing more problems.

You can either plug in you camera to the PC as it should appear as a “Removable Drive” or put the card in a card reader attached to your PC.

Next, if you are comfortable with using a PC then you can download a FREE utility that will recover your photos from the following link:

http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/PhotoRec

If you need something a little more "user friendly" then you will need to buy the software. If you search the web for photo recovery software you will find many.
One I have used successfully is RescuePro that used to be bundled with some Sandisk products. Now you can get it from the link below:

http://www.lc-tech.com/software/prwindetail.html.

You can try the demo to see what you can recover before buying.

Remember - Do NOT try & write anything back to the card until you can recover your pictures to your PC safely!

4gb kingston canon ixus 50


The IXUS 50 works with MMC and SD cards. Your new 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Nikon Coolpix 5900/4 GB Kingston SD Card


The 5900 uses SD cards. The 4GB card you have is actually an SDHC card and will not work in the 5900. You'll have to stay with cards 2GB and smaller.

Have a Kodak EasyShare C743, bought a SanDisk, won't format


Your camera was designed before the SDHC format came out. Sorry, your camera can only use standard SD cards, those usually 2GB or less. An SDHC card will not be recognized properly by your camera. If you really want to use a 4GB card, do a Google search for SD and "non hc", with the non hc in quotes. Believe that Transcend makes one.

SanDisk ImageMate 12in1 cannot read SCHC 4GB or higher cards


Correct!!!! This card reader cannot address cards that are higher then 3gig and cannot read sdhc cards. Most older readers will not be able to read the HC type card, and by older I mean if its 6 months old or more. To read these cards you need to purchase a new card reader. I know, My camera uses 4gig cards and I was unable to access the pics until I bought a new reader..
