Try formatting the sd card using the camera. You should be able to find in the menus.

hi there
you don't say how big the card is, my guess is its bigger than 2 gig which is the maximum allowable size for that camera.

Try resetting your camera. Go into the menu and scroll to "reset" and follow the on-screen instructions.

SOURCE: None of my SD cards (I have 4) will work with my panasonic lumix

This camera uses the SD standard - not SD HC.
Be sure you are using a compatible card!
The highest capacity mentioned in the manual is 1GB althought the SD stanard supports up to 4GB.

My Pantech sd card reader is not working


I don't know what machine you are using or the SD device GBs. Older machines sometimes do not read any SD over 2GBs. That said, there may be updated drivers for your machine and devices. Could be the file format isn't compatible. Hard to say with little info to work from.

Overcoming with SD card "write error"


SD cards are flash memory devices which allow a user to store huge amount of data. Being reliable and durable, these cards have become the hot choice to store data and are used in various host devices like digital camera, PDAs, video game consoles, MP3 players etc. Despite so many advantages, these cards are also prone to errors. Most of these errors occur due to reasons like interruption in read/write process, virus attacks or file system corruption. While some SD card errors can be dealt by cleaning the contacts of the card and re-inserting it, others can be rectified by formatting the card. After formatting, the SD card data can be retrieved by using either a valid backup or SD card recovery software.

Consider a situation, you have taken your family to an exotic locale and while clicking pictures through your digital camera (which is using a SD card) you witness an error on its LCD screen:

“Write error”
The above error is not rare in case of SD cards. The moment the error erupts, the data stored on the SD card becomes inaccessible. Moreover, the SD card becomes useless as you can't even store new data on it.

Cause

The above error which rendered the SD card ineffectual can be accounted to corruption. The other reason can be relatively less memory space to accommodate new data.

Resolution
In order to rectify 'write error', you can try the following possible techniques:
  • Turn the camera off, re-insert the card and then turn it on again
  • If you are still not able to access the data, connect the camera to a computer
  • You can use a card reader to access the SD card data
  • In grim situations where nothing of the above works, format the SD card and restore the data using a backup

After formatting, the SD card becomes functional and can perform read/write operation. If a backup of the data is corrupted or invalid, you can rely on a SD card recovery software. A SD card recovery tool employs improved scanning algorithms to extract data in the event of corruption.

Stellar Phoenix Photo Recovery, a well-known SD card recovery tool, is designed to recover lost/formatted/deleted multimedia files from a variety of memory cards like SD, SDHC, XD, MMC, CF etc. The easy-to-use tool is available in two versions, one each for Windows and Mac operating system.

Computer not finding SD card, I put the SD card in like normal but nothing happens. I go into computer and it does not show up there either


SD cards are not created equally! There is so much more to know than just the capacity.
There are many things about SD cards most people are not aware of. After having numerous problems with my cards, I thought I would share what I learned, mostly from online articles, trial and error!
There are SD cards (Secure Digital)
SDHC cards (SD high capacity)
and SDXC cards (SD extra high capacity, high performance)
Speed Class: There may be a C with a number inside the C printed on the card, (or a U with a 1 in it) - if there is no C or U on your card, it is a C2 card.
C2 is for basic data and photo use and has a slower processing speed.
C4 and C6 are acceptable for up to basic video.
C8 and C10 are high performance, fast processing speeds - and cost more.
The U1 symbol indicates fastest processing speed available, and will cost the most. For large size, HD videos.
If you are trying to use a basic SD2 card (no C rating or C2 rated) for a high quality or high speed video or large RAW photo, you may have problems with your device. The card may not be able to keep up speed-wise. These are generally older, or lowest priced cards. More information and photo examples on the speed class here: https://www.sdcard.org/consumers/speed/speed_class/
Your device will read SD cards up to the capacity it is capable of. A device with SDHC capability will be able to read basic SD cards, but might not be able to read an SDXC card, so you may think you have a defective card when you actually just have a device that does not have the capability to read it.
If your computer's SD reader or peripheral card reading device has an SD card reader and it cannot read SDHC (high capacity) or SDXC (extra high performance/capacity) it will reject or not see the card and you might think you have a defective card. Put the card in your camera or other device you are going to use it for, and then using the USB cord that came with the device, plug that into your PC. The PC will be able to read the card that way, edit it, etc.
After copying all files on the SD card to your computer, you may wish to format the card before using it again. When formatting the card, IMPORTANT: Make sure you have copied all the data you want to keep onto your hard drive, and make sure it is formatted FAT32. I kept formatting a card FAT (which was the default for this card), and the recordable capacity of the card kept getting smaller...and smaller...a 2GB card was only allowing 350, 250, 125 MB of data to be stored on it! I kept hitting a brick wall trying to copy files onto it. I kept formatting the card, thinking there was some de-frag issue or corrupted portion, and the capacity of what it would store kept diminishing - until I formatted the card FAT32. ONLY THEN was the card able to store to its true capacity. I was able to do this in Windows in Explorer - right click the drive the SD card is in, select Format, verify the Capacity (card size), verify the File System (use the pulldown menu to select FAT32 if it is not selected), and then click Start and allow the computer to remain undisturbed until the format is complete. I found a web page that covers this: http://pvillecomp.com/
There is an SD website that offers a download for proper formatting of your SD card, with downloadable instructions. I was using Windows to format my SD cards, but the SD website recommends using software that specifically formats SD cards. Here is the site: www.SDcard.org. Click the Downloads section.
Some older devices can only handle smaller SD cards (2 GB or smaller), so if your device cannot read a particular SD card...check your owner's manual. There is usually a limit to the size, capacity, speed, type, etc. of the cards each device can handle.
It is also possible to partition an SD card so it can be read by more devices, or separated for organization purposes. I prefer smaller SD cards when possible to avoid a huge loss if the card becomes damaged, lost, etc., but for those who have cards that are 16+ GB in size they may want to partition them. Here is a website for that:

Hope this helps!

My SD card reader on my Sony Vaio will not read the card...it seems to know its in the slot, but won't read any data and says 'insert the SD card' if I go to computer and try to read it. Any thoughts?


Take a can of air and blow some into the slot to make sure dust or dirt isn't getting the way of that reader trying to read the sd cards.

If you still get the same message try another SD card in that reader or try to see if another computer will read your SD card, if another computer will read the SD card and the slot still won't recognize the sd cards properly, then you know at that point the reader is bad. If the reader is bad, thats integrated into the motherboard so the motherboard would need to be replaced.

My acer 3680 laptop wo't read a 4 gig hc sd card


Good day sir/maam, you may need a driver for your SD card reader for vista. pop in the cd that came with your notebook to the cd drive. make sure its for Vista.
If still does not work, plug in a non HC sd, like a 1 gig SD card. if it works, then the card reader only supports non hc SD. ( I know it usually supports HC cards ) check also for viruses. there are viruses that can dissable sd card readers. just make sure your laptop is virus free.

Kingston 4gb sd card won't read


I had a problem with lenovo's reader like this, because i put in the nokia 6600 card, correct format and all, but apparently too old and not yet ment to be read by a computer ...

sd could still be hc ... the system of names is still not set up right. if you got a small black attachment for the card that makes it longer, put it on and try inserting the card again.

check if all the drivers are like they should be.

if you've got a friend with a card reader, make sure the card is ok. and if you've got a friend with a card, make sure the reader is like it's supposed to be

post a feedback, ok

Accessing info on an SD card from a computer


Is it only specific cards that you can't read on it? I am assuming you're trying from the internal card reader. If it will read 2 Gigabyte or less cards, and will NOT read cards with more storage space, it's because SDHC, the format that allows more than 2G on a SD card, is a different format, and most older card readers will not work with SDHC.

You can purchase a SDHC reader that works in the USB port from your local electronics store or Office supply store.

Problem with reading Sandisk 4gig hc micro sd card in my computer and laptop


Does the micro sd card been detected by your computer? If not, you may try other card reader, or other computer. If still does not detected, you may try to go to device manager and see whether the sd card is there, if yes, then you can assign a drive letter to the sd card.

Once SD card shows as a drive letter on PC, you can download sd card recovery software to get back your files. recommended asoftech photo recovery that helped me before. download it from link below
SD Card Recovery Software

You can refer to this card recovery tutorial
Recover files from SD Card

If above does not work, you may have to format the memory card (use quick format), and then use Asoftech Data Recovery to scan again the memory card and recover your files.
