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.

Re: trouble with memory card

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.

Aiptek Sd card compatible Problems


Some Aiptek cameras work with SD and SDHC cards, some work only with SD cards. If you have one of the latter, make sure your card is an SD card, not an SDHC card. The two card types are physically identical but electronically different.
If you need further assistance, please feel free to reply to this post. But be sure to specify the model of your Aiptek camera, as well as the type and size of your 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

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

PNY 2GB memory card


I have the same camera and bought a 4GB PNY SD card and it wouldn't work, so I read the manual :) The manual says, "SD Memory Cards having the following storage capacity can be used on your camera (Toshiba PDR-3330):
8MB, 16MB, 32MB, 64MB, 128MB, and 256MB"
Hope this helps! -Kim

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
