Question about Canon PowerShot A520 Digital Camera

SD Card Stuck

I just bought a Kingston SD/512-S 512 MB memory card. It went into the camera with no problems and records pictures properly, but it only pops out about 1/8" - 1/4" or so. I can't pull it out and I don't want to force it. The 16 meg Canon card that came with the camera appears to be much thinner than the Kingston. Kingston's web site says that this card is compatible with my A520. Does anyone know what brand SD card will REALLY work? Any suggestions? How can I remove the Kingston card? Thanks in advance.

There are only two types of SD cards. MiniSD and SD. No matter what brand of SD card you buy they are all the same size and compatibility and same thing goes for the MiniSD cards no matter what brand MiniSD card you buy they are all the same size and compatibility. It is the wonders of standardization, anyone that uses the SD or MiniSD name they must produce all their cards to certain specs. I know you did not buy a SD card and try to put it into a MiniSD slot, that is impossible (unless you used a hammer). The card just got stuck, or maybe you put the card in the wrong slot? My camera's ION battery looks close to my SD card. Anyway your going to have to remove it and you are going to have to use force if needed. I would use needle nose pliers (just don't squeeze THAT hard) use just enough force to pull it out and try not to wiggle it out.

Check if there is anything in the way. It could be a simple grain of sand. A corner of the sticker could also be the problem, maybe a corner of it got loose and was caught in something.

What size memory card does the kodak easyshare cx6200 take?


The internal memory for this camera is 8 MB.

The manual indicates using memory cards of size 8 to 128 MB, so this is an early SD memory camera, following the original SD standard. Do not try SDHC or SDXC cards. The camera will support a 1 GB card. It *might* support a 2 or 4 GB card, but since this is a 2 Mpixel camera, a 512 MB or 1 GB card will allow you to save thousands of jpeg format pictures.

I can't find the memory card for it


According to the specifications the camera has both an in-built mmory, and also accepts an SD card with a maximum of 512 MB . Maybe it will accept a larger SD memory card but only record up to 512 MB? I do not know.

SD cards are common in camera stores, but these days they make them with 1, 2, 3 or even 8 GB ( 1GB about 1000 MB) !

Should you use an 8gb sd memory card in a panasonic lumix dmc-fx3 camera ?


Hi,

The manual lists the following SD cards compatible:

4 GB SDHC Memory Card
2 GB SD Memory Card
1 GB SD Memory Card
512 MB SD Memory Card
256 MB SD Memory Card
128 MB SD Memory Card
64 MB SD Memory Card

An 8GB card may or may not work. If you try it, make sure it is an SDHC card. (Note: HC=High Capacity)

Thanks for using Fixya.

Camera flashes two times, but will not record a picture


this sounds like a problem with the sd card either being corrupt and needing formating or being to large. if made in 07 or older it takes 512 mb sd card max if in 08 or newer it will take up to a one gig sd card.

Z3 will not accept a 2g card


The Dimage Z3 accept SD cards up to 1GB (Minolta says 512 Mb, and sold it with 16Mb). This camera is 4MP , and uses less memory on card, therefore a 512MB card will be enough for it.

SD card


I have the same camera, save the colour (black). As soon as I read your post, an alarm went off. I decided to re-check my User Guide (PDF Eng version, page16), for the Lumix DMC-FZ30:
•On this unit, you can use SD Memory Cards of the following capacity (from 8 MB to 2 GB). Please confirm the latest information on the following website:
http://panasonic.co.jp/pavc/global/cs
(This Site is English only.) • This unit supports SD Memory Cards formatted in FAT12 system and FAT16 system based on SD Memory Card Specifications. • This unit does not support MultiMediaCard for recording motion pictures. • The reading/writing speed of a MultiMediaCard is slower than an SD Memory Card. When a MultiMediaCard is used, the performance of certain features may be slightly slower than advertised. • After recording motion pictures using the MultiMediaCard, the card access indication may appear for a while, but this is not a malfunction. • Keep the Memory Card out of reach of children to prevent swallowing.
8MB, 16MB, 32MB, 64MB, 128MB, 256MB, 512MB, 1GB, 2GB (Maximum)
