'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.

Card locked but it's not? What can I do.

Oops. Later read what my first thought was. Forget that is what comes first means anything to you.
Your camera is not that young. You only can us SD cards. It is very difficult to buy them.
If you bought a 4GB card you definitely have a SDHC card and your camera can't work with that. Today even lots of 2 GB cards are already SDHC. I know if you look good, you could fine a 4GB SD card. I have bought some recently. Look for Platinum 4GB SD Card.
Still if you are sure you do have a 1GB or less SD card, read what is next.

Looks this is not on the card, but in the camera. It could be the switch that sees if you "Locked" the memory card is pushed by something else. I'm not sure if you could see that, with a magnifying glass perhaps and some extra light? Look in the memory card holder, if you see something strange. And only use some pressed air (never high pressure, because you could blow up your camera) A technician cold go a little farther, and open the camera. to check is there is no corrosion in the switch(es). But before you go out for a repair, I think you could buy a camera with better quality pictures now, for probably less money than repair would cost

I just bought a new sandisk 4GB card for my p880 kodak. Wnen inserted the new card camera screen says card is unusable, insert new card. I have followed instructions for formatting on my PC, but still get...

The P880 works with MMC and SD cards. Your new 4GB card is an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work. The camera is limited to working with cards 2GB and smaller.

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.

Card error


I wish what I'll be saying will resolve the problem. Unfortunately, your camera can only support up to 1GB of SD card. That's the reason why the 4GB card is not working.

Here's a screenshot of the details regarding your Polaroid camera.

I hope that helps.

Good luck and have a nice day!

Sorry for the extreme delay in answering your question: I've been trawling for old unanswered questions today and yours came up. The following answer will undoubtedly be way too late to be of use to you, but may assist others searching FixYa for an answer to the same problem.

You have been mistaking SD cards for SDHC cards. They look the same but are different, and your camera cannot use SDHC cards as it was designed before they existed. The limitation is due to the hardware in your camera so it cannot be updated to SDHC standards.

Your 2GB card was definitely an SD card as SDHC cards have a minimum capacity of 4GB, and 2GB SD cards are the maximum capacity which your camera can handle. Your only fix is to either stick to 2GB maximum capacity SD cards or to replace the camera with one which is SDHC compatible.

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
