Storing or formating SD card

When I try to store to or format a Secure Digital (SD) memory card, a write error displays. What should I do?

This solution was already tried without success. It appears to be in a Read-Only configuration and the write-enable slider has no effect. Is there a method to re-format the media at a low level?

The Secure Digital (SD) memory card has a write-protect switch on the card case. Like the write-protect switch on a floppy disk, the SD switch prevents the card from being written to. (The SD card is slightly thicker than the MultiMedia [MMC] card.) Moving the write-protect switch will allow you to write to and format the SD card. If you are looking at the front of the card, the switch is on the upper-left side.

Memory card error

Try using a different SD memory card. You can also try formatting your memory card, BUT that will delete everything stored on your memory card.

Overcoming with SD card "write error"

SD cards are flash memory devices which allow a user to store huge amount of data. Being reliable and durable, these cards have become the hot choice to store data and are used in various host devices like digital camera, PDAs, video game consoles, MP3 players etc. Despite so many advantages, these cards are also prone to errors. Most of these errors occur due to reasons like interruption in read/write process, virus attacks or file system corruption. While some SD card errors can be dealt by cleaning the contacts of the card and re-inserting it, others can be rectified by formatting the card. After formatting, the SD card data can be retrieved by using either a valid backup or SD card recovery software.

Consider a situation, you have taken your family to an exotic locale and while clicking pictures through your digital camera (which is using a SD card) you witness an error on its LCD screen:

“Write error”
The above error is not rare in case of SD cards. The moment the error erupts, the data stored on the SD card becomes inaccessible. Moreover, the SD card becomes useless as you can't even store new data on it.


The above error which rendered the SD card ineffectual can be accounted to corruption. The other reason can be relatively less memory space to accommodate new data.

In order to rectify 'write error', you can try the following possible techniques:
  • Turn the camera off, re-insert the card and then turn it on again
  • If you are still not able to access the data, connect the camera to a computer
  • You can use a card reader to access the SD card data
  • In grim situations where nothing of the above works, format the SD card and restore the data using a backup

After formatting, the SD card becomes functional and can perform read/write operation. If a backup of the data is corrupted or invalid, you can rely on a SD card recovery software. A SD card recovery tool employs improved scanning algorithms to extract data in the event of corruption.

Stellar Phoenix Photo Recovery, a well-known SD card recovery tool, is designed to recover lost/formatted/deleted multimedia files from a variety of memory cards like SD, SDHC, XD, MMC, CF etc. The easy-to-use tool is available in two versions, one each for Windows and Mac operating system.

My memory card is not opening

Your card may not be formatted -or- it is and it;s a proprietary format. If you want to format it, here is the instructions (for Windows):
Put your card into your computer (some have a slot or else use a card reader). Right click on that drive after it appears in My Computer and select Format; set the File System drop-down to NTFS (better file storage space) or FAT32 (more compatibility in older operating systems) and click Start.

I got a Vivitar ITwist X014 camera but is did not come with a SD memory card? What and where do I get this? Perplexed

It didn't come with a memory card because Vivitar can't know what type/size/speed card you want. You should be able to buy SD and SDHC cards at just about any department, electronics, or office-supply store.

Loosely speaking, a memory card is the equivalent of film, with the main difference that you can reuse a memory card. You take your pictures, they get stored on the card, then you can transfer the pictures to your computer and reuse the card for more pictures.

PNY Optima SD HC Card cannot be read in HP Photosmart 8150 printer.

  1. Verify that the printer is turned off.
  2. Remove the Secure Digital memory card from the printer.
  3. Examine the Secure Digital memory card:
    • Is the lock switch in the unlock position?
    • Are there any visible discolorations or defects such as crack or nick in the card?
    • Are there any contacts missing from the end of the card?
    • Are there any deep scratches in the card contacts?
    • Is there any heat discoloration on the card? NOTE: If all of the above questions result in No , proceed to Step 4.
  4. Check if the HP Photosmart printer supports the file format. NOTE: In order to know which file formats are supported by the different HP Photosmart printers, please refer to the manual of your printer.
  5. (Saving the pictures on the PC, if possible) Insert the Secure Digital memory card in the camera (or another device) and format it following the proper instructions to perform it.
  6. Capture an image.
  7. Review the image. If the image is corrupted or an error such as Unsupported Image File is displayed, the Secure Digital memory card is suspected to be defective and should either be replaced or referred to the manufacturer for further troubleshooting.
  8. If the images are read properly, turn on the printer. Insert the Secure Digital memory card in the Secure Digital slot.
  9. If the printer display continues to show the Card Not Recognized error, try using another Secure Digital memory card, if one is available.
  10. If the printer is still unable to read a functional and compatible Secure Digital card, contact HP to obtain additional troubleshooting information.

Cards not working with camera

If you used the SD/MMC memory card in another brand of camera or device, you may need to format the card in your new EasyShare digital camera. (You may have noticed a "Memory Card Needs Formatting" message when you inserted the card.) CAUTION: Formatting deletes all pictures and videos, including those that are protected. Removing a card during formatting may damage the card. To format the SD/MMC memory card or the internal memory of the camera: Transfer images to the computer before formatting the memory card. Press the camera Menu button. Highlight SETUP MENU, and then press the OK button. Highlight FORMAT, and then press the OK button. Highlight an option - MEMORY CARD (deletes everything on the card), CANCEL (exits without formatting), or INTERNAL MEMORY (deletes everything in internal memory). Press the OK button. Highlight Continue, and then press the OK button. Wait until formatting is finished before removing the card. When formatting is complete, the SETUP MENU is displayed. Press the Menu button to exit the menu.
