When the card worked before, check if you did not switch the lock switch down. And check all contacts on the card and in the camera. They should be clean and shiny.
When you recently bought a new card you could have bough a SDHC card and these won't work in your S800.
The S800 only accepts MMC and SD cards, The SDHC and SDXC cards won't work.
A few years ago you still could buy 4 Gbyte SD cards. Now even most 1 Gbyte and 2 Gbyte cards are already SDHC. SDHC was introduced at least 7 or 8 years ago, so all new devices accept SDHC. The SDXC was introduced at least 4 years ago, so in a couple of years, you perhaps only can buy these cards?

Some cameras have a maximum limit to the capacity of memory card that can be used. Please make sure that you have the right capacity card. There is also a lock (yellow tab on the side) on SD card. Make sure that it is not in the 'lock' position.

I can't install my card in samsung digimax S800


What type and size memory card? The S800 uses MMC and SD cards. It will not work with SDHC cards even though they'll fit into the slot.

Memory card after formatting, say check card (samsung camera)


Probably, especially if your card is a 4GB or larger SDHC card, then it's definitely the wrong card. The older Digimax S800 camera can only use standard SD cards (2GB or less). Fortunately, these are very inexpensive these days, and may be found on Amazon if your local store no longer carries them.For others reading this experiencing similar problems, please see this article.

Card locked samsung s800


Hello Eilee,

Remove the memory card from your camera and check for a tiny switch on it. Make sure it is not set to "Lock". If it is, then switch it back to unlock.

However, if your memory card does not have the "Lock Feature" it could mean that your card is already malfunctioning. Try reformatting it first before buying a new one.

Note: You will loose ALL data from your SD card once you format it.

You can rate my answer if you appreciate it.
Thanks!

What is the max size sd card used for video in the SAMSUNG DIGIMAX s800


SD cards max out at 2GB. Higher capacity cards are actually SDHC cards (the HC stands for High Capacity).

I am unable to take photos with my samsung digimax s800 camera as the message 'CARD LOCKED' keeps coming up on screen. I have deleted loads of photos so the memory card is definitely not full. Any ideas?


Look at your memory card. 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.

What sd card value can i use


The Samsung Digimax S800 digital camera is only guaranteed up to 1gb SD cards, meaning you might be able to get away with something larger, but it was only manufactured for up to 1gb. Hope this helps.

Memory card is locked


There is a small tab (like a very small hole with a sliding piece of plastic) on the corner of the memory card. Slide it to unlock it :)
