Trouble with memory card

Recieved an Aiptek Dv4500 for Christmas with a PNY 512mb SD card. Worked until I attempted to transfer an mp3, following their directions exactly. My screen immeadiately said "card error" and now says that no matter what. I have tried to format the card using the camera, and just recieve the same "card error" message. If I remove the card, the camera works as intended, mp3s and all, with a very limited 16mb, so I can have about 4 pictures and one song, haha. any ideas? Maybe the card is bad or is it maybe the camera? I have no experience with digital cameras or memory cards and any ideas would be helpful. I have tried to find help on both websites to no avail. Thanks in advance.

I suspect that you did not format the card with the camera before you started using it. The card MUST be formated by the camera before anything is put on the card. you can solve this by inserting the card into a card reader and using the computer to delete all files and folders on the card. Then put the card into the camera and format the card with the camera. do not use the computer to format the card. i hope this will help.

Card error


Is this the card you always used, or did you recently buy a new card?
Because you can use MMC cards and SD cards. Most SD cards you now buy, even the 2 GB ones, are SDHC cards and they are not compatible with your camera.
You should try to get an SD card. They used to make SD cards up to 4GB, but as I said, now they already make 2GB SDHC, So look careful when buying a memory card.
If it was the card you always used, try to get all pictures from the card, using an external memory card reader on your computer. Then in the camera do a format, before you continue.
If it does not work, try an other card. SD that is.

Has the card worked before.If it is the first time you have tried,is the SD card an SDHC,as some printers will not read these.Try a standard SD card and see if your printer reads that.Hope this helps.

I bought a AIPTEK P-HD+ camcorder for my daughter on Christmas. She was using it for only 1 minute and it's full. Do I need to buy a SD card to be able to record?


Yes, you need to purchase a memory card. Most cameras, like yours, which do come with an internal memory don't come with a suitable amount of memory to replace the capacity of a memory card.

I need to purchase this memory car and don't know where to get it


Don't bother with a Vivitar Card (i'm not even sure they make them). Buy an SD Card from a decent brand like SanDisk, Kingston or PNY. A 512MB card will store about 200 photos with your camera. I'd recommend a 1/2gb card. More photos and can be found for peanuts these days.

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.

SanDisk Flash memory card - 512 MB SD Memory ...

from $13 - 20 stores

PNY Flash memory card - 512 MB SD Memory Card ...

from $3 - 2 stores

SanDisk SD Industrial Flash memory card - 512 ... from $14

Here 1 Gb, try at your risk, but they normally work:

Aiptek IS-DV Memory Full message when memory card is empty


Exactly the same thing happend to me with my brand-new Aiptek. Turns out it was the no-name brand SD card that I got from China which destroyed it. Aiptek was kind enough to replace it for free since it was under warranty. Aiptek's caution: Stick to brands like SanDisk, Dane-Elec, Kingston, Transcend or PNY. Purchase from resellers like Target, Best Buy, Newegg.com or Amazon.com. Avoid MINI & MACRO style cards. NO Sandisk Ultra II or Extreme III, class 6. AVOID Hi-SPEED!

Will not recognize 16 GB SDHC Card - Help Please


I had a literally terrifying experience with Aiptek customer service.

I called up Aiptek to ask if it was possible to get my memory cards working. I have two 4GB SDHC PNY cards, which th ekid at target reccomended after loking at the back of the box.

I was told by aiptek tech support that PNY cards will not work in the A-HD camera.

When I mentioned that the box says it will take cards up to 32GB, and asked him if this was not false advertising. The representative became irate and started insulting me, using valgure language, and calling me a liar.

At this point I had enough of his abuse and yelled at him F.U!

What happened next is Truly Absurd and Outrageous!

The man behind the telephone at Aiptek told me he was going to send 5 guys to my house to assult me and my fammily!
THIS IS NO JOKE!

HD 720 does not seem to detect 4 gig SD memory card.


I think it will only take SD memory cards not a PNY.

Transferring mp3 files from memory card onto computer


Those multifunction devices require several drivers. I assume you loaded the drivers onto the computer. It sounds like you are using a memory card that already has MP3 files on it. That may be a problem if the camera or software is expecting to see the files in a certain folder on the card. Try uploading MP3 files to the camera and then see if you can move it back to the computer. Since you just got it, check and see how much time you have to return it to the store. If you have a bit of time, check out the help section of Aiptek's website. http://www.aiptek.com
