'Check SD Card' message

Hey, Ive had this camera for a while now with no problems and my 128MB card works fine, but today i bought a new 4GB card and each time i put it into the camera and press ok to format i get an error message saying 'Check SD Card'. I am sure the card is fine and have successfully formated it on my pc and still the same error occurs. Does anyone have any advice please? Thanks in advance

Looking at the manual Samsung only guarantee support for cards up to 1GB so I guess your new card won't work in this camera. Perhaps you can take the card & camera to your supplier and try other manufacturer's cards or just lower capacity.

If you've tried to format the cards in the camera and it failed, it's probably because the cards are SDHC cards instead of SD. With a camera as old as yours, SDHC cards hadn't come out yet.

Memory card Sandisk 4GB gives error memory card


The S50 uses SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card, and will not work in the S50. You will have to confine your choices to cards 2GB and smaller.

I just purchased a 4gb memory card for my canon powershot sd700 and it reads memory card error-card locked. I put my old 2gb card in and it works just fine. I took the 4gb back to the store and bought...


ok, first off:
make sure the card is compatible with the camera and the camera is compatible with the card (reffer to the manuals of both products).
if all checks out, contact the manufacturer of the camera first, then do the same with the card.
if everything works up to this point, but you still cant get it to work, get a new camera.

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

SD cards


Do the 4GB Cards say SDHC on them? They should. SDHC is simply "Secure Digital High Capacity". They're high capacity SD cards that hold more than regular cards. In this case, 4GB. The problem with these is that they need to be supported by the device. I've never put an SDHC card into a device that doesn't support them, but it looks like that's what your situation is. The highest memory capacity a non-SDHC compliant device is capable of 2GB. I recommend that you return the 4GB cards and buy 2GB cards instead.

Compatibility with SDHC/SD2 Logo?


never try to use more than what the spec recommends, when it says 1gb* max use 1gbmax. It is better to use two or more 1gb max than one 4gb card cause when the 4gb card brakes down you'll lose all 4gbmem, unlike when you have four 1gb. besides 1gb is too much or too big or i may say enough to mem too many pictures!
