Re: SD Card Recognition
Perform the following procedures when your digital camera does not detect the SD card.
1. Restart the camera
Turn the main power OFF, or open the battery cover or SD card/battery cover to remove the battery. Make sure the SD card is fully installed. Then, turn the main power ON, or insert a battery again and close the battery cover or SD card/battery cover until it latches.
2. Initialize the SD card
Format the SD card with your camera.
Formatting procedures varies depending on the camera model. See the Camera User Guide supplied with your camera for the instruction to format the SD card.
When formatting the SD card, slide its tab upward to cancel write protection.
It is impossible to format the SD card while it is write protected.
3. Check if your camera detects other SD cards (If you own multiple SD cards.)
If your camera does not detect the SD card after performing the procedures 1 and 2, check if the camera detects other SD cards.
If it does detect other SD cards, the SD card that wasn't detected may contain some problem.

Put the SD memory card into an USB card reader and plug the card reader into the USB port of a working computer to check if the memory card is working. If the computer cannot detect the memory card as an external storage device and cannot open the files or folders and it cannot be formatted in FAT32 then the SD memory card is faulty and needs to be replaced..
The pictures that are stored on your camera memory cannot be transferred to the SD Memory Card. They must be downloaded to your computer first and then transferred via a card reader, if you intend to get them to the SD Memory Card. The two memory areas, internal and SD memory work separate of each other and the camera only operates from one. IF the system detect SD Memory than that is where the images are saved, if not, they automatically go to the internal memory.
Most probably, the Camera might not detected the inserted SD card. Please find the option to format the memory in the Camera and perform. If not check whether the SD card is compatible with the Camera.. Otherwise, use a compatible one.
yes. you can try to insert the sd card to a computer using any all-in-1 memory card reader. then if windows detects it, right click the card's drive in windows explorer then select format. choose FAT as file system type. before you put it back to your camera clean the card's contact points, insert the card and if the camera detects the card format it again using the camera's format tool.
The lock switch on the SD card looks like a bit of plastic without any electronics. A bit like the write-protect tab on a 3.5" FDD.
So there must be a sensor in the reader / camera which detects the position of the switch. Maybe there is dirt in the sensor. The best way to check would be to try another SD card, but you could try blowing out any possible dirt and see if that fixes the problem. Can the camera write to the SD card?
If the camera still works OK otherwise -- you caN BYPASS THE PROBLEM with coimputer recognition simply by removing the SD card, and reading it directly. Most notebooks have a slot for plugging in an SD card. Otherwise -- there are some very cheap SD card readers (<$5.00) -- insert your card, plug into USB Port, then (on Windows) select "Open Windows Explorer" select and copy your digital images to your PC.
