Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ18K Digital Camera
Ive put a memory card in the camera and a message has come up Memory card error Memory card parameter error , the camera is panasonic fz18
I have a 2Gb SDHC memory card that came with the camera and it works fine. I tried to upgrade to a 8Gb SDHC memory card and received an error message on reading the card, I purchased a 4Gb SDHC memory card and got the same message. The camera will not let me format either card......anyone know what the problem is and how to fix it?
Sorry for the extreme delay in answering your question: I've been trawling for old unanswered questions today and yours came up. The following answer will undoubtedly be way too late to be of use to you, but may assist others searching FixYa for an answer to the same problem.
You have been mistaking SD cards for SDHC cards. They look the same but are different, and your camera cannot use SDHC cards as it was designed before they existed. The limitation is due to the hardware in your camera so it cannot be updated to SDHC standards.
Your 2GB card was definitely an SD card as SDHC cards have a minimum capacity of 4GB, and 2GB SD cards are the maximum capacity which your camera can handle. Your only fix is to either stick to 2GB maximum capacity SD cards or to replace the camera with one which is SDHC compatible.
