Hi Lorinda, There are a few different reasons why your camera may not be reading the memory card. Troubleshooting such problems can be a little tricky, especially if no error message appears on your camera's screen. The cause and solution may include one of the following:
    ·The card may not be the right type for the camera: First make sure the memory card you are using is compatible with your camera. For example, a SDHC memory card often will not work with older memory card readers. Even though SD memory cards are similar in size and shape to SDHC cards, they use different software for managing the card's data, meaning older readers sometimes cannot recognize the SDHC cards. Sometimes you can solve this issue by updating the memory card reader's firmware to give it the ability to deal with SDHC cards. Check the Web site of the manufacturer for your memory card reader to see if new firmware is available. It is also a good idea to check with your camera's manufacturer (on it's website) to see if an updated version of your camera's firmware is available. ·The card is not fully inserted in the camera. Turn off the camera, insert a card into the slot, then push to seat it. ·The card or a file on the card may be corrupt. Photo file corruption can occur when the battery power is too low when writing a photo file to the card, or when the memory card is removed while the camera is writing a photo file to the card. One way to check if it is the card or your camera is to try moving the memory card to a computer, then try accessing the photo file directly from the computer to see if the file actually is corrupted, or if your camera is just unable to read a particular file. You can also double check this issue by using another memory card in your camera and see if it works as it should. If the memory card is unreadable on any device, the next step is to reformat the memory card. Look through your camera's on-screen menus to find a "format memory card" command. However, keep in mind that formatting the card will erase all photo files stored on it. Some cameras just work better with a memory card when that memory card is formatted inside the camera. If you do reformat the card, make sure to let the process finish itself before removing the card. Removing a card during formatting may damage the card.

I have 2GB SD card, when i insert it into camera, it will check and the show on screen that: This card cannot be used: How do i make it to work. What will i do. From Nwabueze Ogbonnaya

When you are sure here is nothing important on the SD card, you first should try to format it. If not possible in the camera, try it in a computer FAT 12 or FAT 16 should work. But when you put in the card, make sure the card is not locked and the battery / memory card cover is closed and locked correct. Everything is still in the manual. Just to make sure you understand how to unlock the memory card I place a picture. The switch should be like on the 64GB card (up) 4be2bd40-9d79-4409-8920-e4a13200757f.jpg

When i put my sd card in my camera wont turn on

The PDR-3300 works with MMC and SD cards. Your new 8GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work in the camera. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

The zoom no longer works?

Good day,

This tip will explain a few methods on how to try and fix your lens if it is stuck or you get a lens error on your screen.

Please note that all these methods are used at the users own risk and that I can not be held responsible for any damages or losses that occur while trying these methods.

1. If your camera is still under warranty, send your camera to the manufacturer to be replaced or fixed professionally.

2. If your camera is out of warranty try these methods.

  • Make sure your batteries are fully charged.
  • Remove the batteries for 10min. Replace the batteries and see if the problem persists.
  • Try compressed air. This method can be useful if there are any sand or any other object stuck in the lens motors. Use compressed air with a fine tip. Direct the air between the camera body and lens and move in a circular motion around the lens to complete a full rotation.
  • You can also try to tap the padded USB cover firmly on a flat surface like a table. This is sometimes a surprisingly effective method.
  • The last method is to try and force the lens. Turn of your camera and place it on its back on a flat surface. Look at the spacing between the lens and the body and see if the gap is consistent all the way around the lens. If the gap is not even it is likely that the camera fell while the lens was extended. Now VERY GENTLY push down on the lens were the gap is the biggest until you her a "click". This will indicate that the lens is back in place. Try powering back on.
  • If the lens does not extend or it extend and retracts turn of the camera. Hold the camera in your one hand and with the other hand turn the one part of the lens in a circular motion. Rotate both sections of the lens until you hear a "click". This will indicate that the lens popped back in place. Power the camera back on.
  • The last method you can use is to turn the lens while powering on the camera until you hear a "click". Power the camera of and back on to see if it works.
If any of the methods listed above failed to work for your lens problem it would be wise to take it on to a professional to get your camera repaired.

Thanks for taking the time to read my tip and feel free to let me know if it was of any help.

I need a SD card

Any SD card will work. You don't need to specify a particular brand, and speed won't make any difference to the camera (though a faster card may speed up downloads via a card reader). Just make sure you get an SD card, not an SDHC card.

My cam dosent stait on


The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel after dropping it. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful.

I need the software for Macintosh Leopard

If you only need to download your pics, try using a separate card reader to download the pics to a folder you create on your desktop. Once there, you can import them to iphoto or anywhere else you care to.

Missing memory card

In all probability the memory card that came with your PDR-3300 was:

SD 8 MB Toshiba Memory Card.

SD cards with a much larger MB can be obtained at any large Drug Store, i.e. Walgreens, CVS, etc.

At the present time, these cards, 32 MB and larger are very inexpensive.

Problem with camera writing to memory card

try this first: pull the SD card from the the slot and hold it right side up with the label facing you, there is a short slot on the side with a sliding switch. move it to the other side of the slot and that will unlock the card. (it probably go moved as your were putting the card back into your camera) good luck!
