Casio only tested 3 cards with the camera. Sandisc, Toshiba, Panasonic. First: Format the internal memory of camera and then reset camera. In rec mode press menu go to setup tab go up to format press right arrow highlight format press set. Follow same steps for resetting. Then insert mem card and format mem card. If that still doesn't work I would say there is something wrong with the camera itself and would need to be sent in.

Camera will not format sd card nor does it show a card in the camera

Something tells me that you're trying to use a brand new 4GB SDHC card. If so, your camera was designed before SDHC format came out. You'll need to use standard SD cards, those 2gb or less. Search on Amazon for "SD card 2GB". They run about 6 to 7 dollars total with shipping.
For others with similar problems, There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". The most common is trying to use a 4GB or higher SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Other causes include problems with the tiny slide switch on the side of the card, or the electrical contact switch internal to the camera. The problem may also arise from simple formatting problems if the card has never been formatted in the camera (note that this will also erase the card). Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link.

Canon PowerShot SD400 No memory card message, but there is a memory card installed. Tried multiple memory cards and got the same message. Made sure the memory card was locked.

Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link. By the way, if you're using 4GB or larger SDHC cards, they won't work with the SD400 as that camera was made before SDHC came out. Consider 2GB or less standard SD cards only. They're very inexpensive these days on Amazon..

Brand new memory card

I have the same problem with the same camera. I checked other sites and it seems that the C330 takes only SD cards up to a max of 1GB. It won't read SDHC cards and it won't read SD cards greater than 1GB.

My camera doesn`t read memory card.I tried with 2

On most cameras, once you start to use the internal memory, the camera doesn't want to read a memory card. You need to go into the menu and "reset" the camera. Then, with no card in the camera, go into the menu and "format" the internal memory. Then, insert the card and "format" it. This will erase it so download any pics first.

When I turn on my DMC-LS75, it displays this message:Memory Card Error - Please Check The Card. HOWEVER, the same card can be read in my computer and can be used in another digital camera.

Never heard of that brand name, all memory cards work by the same set rules. Check to see if memory is installed wrong. Check to see if it is compatible with your camera. Inretrospec, I would have to suspect it's a bad PCB in your camera.
