Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

What memory card do you use for vivitar vivicam 4100? i tried putting in a 4gb sd card, and then the camera wouldnt load up with it in.

Answers :

The new 4GB card is likely an SDHC card (see if SDHC is printed on the card). Although it looks the exact same as a standard SD card, its file format is different. Your camera was designed before the SDHC format came out. Unfortunately your camera is not compatible with this card, and there is no way to make it work. Instead consider the wide availability these days of low-cost 2GB standard SD cards. These will work with your camera, and happily only cost about $7 including shipping:\015\012http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss_gw?url=search-alias%3Delectronics&field-keywords=sd+card+2GB&x=21&y=22\015\012

I normally use a small 32mb memory card in the olympus D-390 but used an olympus fe-130 over the holidays with a 256mb memory card. I do not have the usb cord for the fe-130 so I put the 256mb card in the d-390 camera and plugged it into my computer to load up my photos but I get a blue screen on the camera with options of Power off or format. Is the card too big for the camera? it works fine in the other to let me take photos and view them, if I had the cord for it or went to a store to print

Many cameras will not read cards written on other, different cameras. There should be no problem taking the card to a store and having the pics printed or put on a disc. Or get a cord for the 390, or a card reader for your computer. ... Olympus Camedia D-390 Digital Camera

D50 cannot use a 4gb card??? I use 1gb, 2 gb and no issues, now bought a 4gb card and get a CHA indicator on camera and will not shoot pictures. Can this camera be programed to accept a 4gb or larger card??? thanks Mark

No, the D50 will not (as you've discovered) accept an SDHC memory card (anything bigger than 2gb is SDHC). I haven't found a firmware upgrade for the D50 to rectify this issue, either. I own a D50 also, and love it, but bigger cards would be nice. ... Nikon D50 Digital Camera
