    forgot to say we tried the card in another camera and it worked fine, I even did a format on it using the other camera. I dont have a manual and cant seem to find one or a site that tells me the max card that can be used, it just says an SD card is used. Thanks for the replies, most grateful.

Either the camera will not support that size of card, or the memory is too fast for this camera. Likely it is the speed, as some newer cards are too powerful for slower cameras and off brands like this that dont have the right firmware

Either the card needs to be formatted or it is beyond the capacity of this camera. I don't have a manual but if you have one check how to format a card and what the maximum capacity is. Also check that the card is not write protected (slider on side of card)..........

I have a goodmans 5012z g-shot digital camera. When i turn it on, it write protected comes on the camera. I just carnt remove it from the camera. Has anyone got some advice to remove it.

Take the memory card out of the camera and look at it. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

I have a Canon Power Shot SD1100IS. I get a

A 32mb card isn't very big. If your camera takes pictures larger than 6mps, the card will fill up fast. Why not buy a larger card? You can set the picture quality to a lower setting in the menu of the camera, but if you capture that once in a lifetime shot and you want to print an enlargement, the quality will suffer. My advice...shoot in the highest quality and use a big card.
