DC-CAMZ 4200 with 1GB SD CARD

I bought this DC-CAMZ 4200 from CREATIVE SINGAPORE. This cam is amasing! I understand that the specs mentioned that only up to 512mb can be used. However, since most cameras are using 1gb with no problem, i recently bought a 1gb SD card andwas surpriced that it didn't work. I call up the technical hotline this afternoon to ask for help and was told that the max capacity is 512mb. But i asked the cust care if there were any cust feed back if they had successfully used a 1gb SD, it seems that there were people who are able to use it but he does not know what brand. I thank the Cust care for his help as he tried his best to help. I jus feel a 512mb is not enough if i were to use the video function. I hope the technical team could advise me on the alternative way to go about it. Possible a software upgrade or maybe what Particular brand of 1GB SD is suitable for this cam.

SOURCE: PC-Cam 300 no longer functions as a digital camera

Let's do a hardware reset on the player: Press Snapshot button and Operational mode button simultaneously for more than two seconds this will delete all the files from the camera. A beep sound is heard when the memory is cleared and LCD displays zero. This may get the camera working again.

you might have a malfunctioning camera try it on a friends computer with the software if it dosent work it probably wont work you can take it to a repair shop, if it does work your computer probably has a virus or corrupt system files all you need to do then is scan for viruses and then insert a system repair disk for your current operating system or put your operating system disk in and repaair your system.

You can download the drivers from

Also note if you are running Windows XP or higher you do not need the software to get the pictures off the camera (I have one my self and it works fine on my Windows XP and Windows 7 computers).

It is possible that the drive letter that the camera wants to use by default is assigned to another device. The links below will help you reassign a drive letter to the camera.

What is the max SD card size?

SD cards max out at 2GB. SDHC cards go up to 32GB and SDXC cards go up from 64GB, but they will work only in devices designed for them. If your camera's specs mention only SD cards then the higher-capacity cards won't work.

If this question is also about the DC-T50, then you need to replace your SDHC card with an SD card, as I mentioned in another response.

Sd card not being read. I have tried two different 4gb SD cards. These cards have the smaller mico chip inside the SD card. I also tried to format the card with the camera but not able to do this...

The DC-1020 works with SD cards up to 2GB in size, not SDHC cards 4GB and larger. The same limitations apply to microSD and microSDHC cards used with adapters. The adapter will make a microSDHC card appear as an SDHC card to the camera.

You need to use SD or microSD cards, 2GB and smaller.

I have a Nikon S6000. I recently bought a card for it at a Big Lots store. Here is what is on the front of the card: "PNY Optima SD HC 120 min HD 8GB." The problem is that the card will not come...

"SD" cards larger than about 2GB are actually SDHC cards. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but they are slightly different electrically. Many cameras won't work with SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

It sounds like your camera is able to understand SDHC, but your card reader is not. It won't cost much to buy a new card reader, but make sure the specs mention SDHC.

SD Card Wont Work

Check if the SD card is iserted properly into the camera, eventually pull it out and push it back inside the camera. Also remove camera batteries , repeat the operation, and put back batteries.
If the card still does not work test the card into a different device, it is not unfrequent that an SD card comes defective from factory. In this case take the card back to the retailer and a have it changed.
If the card works on a different device, then it may be that the NV3 does not support 4 GB , there is no mention about max SD format supported in camera specs, or in the manual. In this case I suggest testing a 1 or 2 Gb card at the shop, and then buying right one.

Digital camera SD card

Your camera uses a SD flash memory card. You have a xD flash memory card. Basically, you have the wrong size card. Hope this helps!
