Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

The camera switches on fine - will take a pictur/ review - but then requests that the camera bes witched off/ on- do that - screen message appears system error [o.i.s]. Happened to try the camera with out memory card [ SanDisk ultra 8GB] - works fine! - tried another cars [same model] from another camera - same problem! any ideas gratefully received


Answers :

The problem is isolated when there's a memory card in the camera, is it right?

Are you using a brand new memory card? What type of card is it (SD, MicroSD, MiniSD)? If it's brand new, you need to verify with the manual if the camera could support an 8GB card. There are some cameras that do not support 8GB. If you are using an SD card, check the edge of the card and make sure that it's not locked.

If the camera supports 8GB card, then the problem has something to do with the memory card slot or the program itself. You need to contact manufacturer and have them upgrade the firmware of your camera and it should work properly.

Have a great day!

Memory card Our old memory card stopped working in the camera. It said "memory card error". I bought a new card, 8gb duracell sdhc card, and when I put it in it said"memory card error" again. I tried formatting the card but it would not allow me to. I put the card in my computer and the new one works fine. I gave the old card to my brother in law to look at it, but he is on vacation, so I can't test it in my computer. I put the card that came with the camera in and it works fine, but it is a mmc


Unfortunately, the A520 does not support SD memory cards with more than 2GB capacity, and doesn't support SDHC at all. (1GB max for MMC cards.) I know memory is much cheaper than when the camera first came out, but in 2005 2GB was about as large as y ... Canon PowerShot A520 Digital Camera

I have a new Canon A3300 IS and a new SanDisk SDHC 4 GB memory card. It's worked fine for a few days, and now suddenly, I get a "Memory card error" message, and the camera won't work. I tried reformatting the memory card, but the camera refuses to do it. What happened? I assume I need a new memory card, but I'm afraid that the problem will occur again.


Insert the card into a card reader and format it on the computer. See if that works. Format using FAT32 as its more reliable than the FAT it uses by default. If the camera supports FAT32 you can expect it to last atleast a year before you need to for ... Canon A3300 IS Digital Camera

Hi guys! I'm having trouble with my KODAK SDHC Memory Card 4GB. I've recorded some stuff in my camera, and I can see my recordings IN the camera, but whenever I try to transfer my videoclips to my PC, it won't detect the memory card. I've alreday tried connecting the camera directly to the computer, but still won't detect it. Whenever I use another memory card it seems to work perfectly fine. HELP!

8GB CENTON SDHC memory card - class 4 - worked okay first day. Removed card to transfer pics to computer. Did fine. When inserted card back in camera JVC-PICSIO GC-FM2BU, got "Memory Card Error" message. Could not reformat. Still okay incomputer, so reformatted in computer. Back in camera, got same message. Tried in other cameras - got same error message. FYI, card is NOT locked!


Sounds like you forgot to use the "safely remove hardware" when you removed the card from the computer. Also, never format a card in a computer and then expect it to work in a camera. You can try to format it a few more times in the camera but if not ... Digital Cameras

I have a 256MB compactflash memory card for the coolpix 4300 that was bought over 7 years ago. I went to Radio Shack and Walmart looking for another. The salesperson told me that the SandDisk 8GB compactflash memory card would work. I tried it and it doesn't. The screen on the camera reads do you want to format the card. I selected yes, but it doesn't work. Is there anyway I could make the card work. It's the same size and look as the 256MB card.

Memory cards have a limited life. If you've been using it a lot and erasing it or formatting it, it probably is just worn out. Take it to a camera shop and try a new card. If that works, go to a discount store and buy a new one. It will cost less ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ30 Digital Camera

My Nikon d40x is roughly three years old and the lens has had to have been repaired twice due to it being dropped. Lens is working fine though now. Yesterday i was getting out my car and the camera fell out my bag, the lens still works fine but now the camera is refusing to take more than 1 photo and saying "card is full". Tried my brothers memory card in it and its doing the same although his memory card works fine with his camera (nikon d60). Someone help!

My Kodak C190 will not read the card. I cannot format it in the camera because IT WON'T READ IT IN THE CAMERA. I keep seeing the same answer - "format in the camera" - but it can't read it. Now what ? I have I tried three other cards of varying sizes - 2gb, 4gb, 8gb, and 16gb - none were able to be read. The camera works fine with its internal memory, but that doesn't hold much at all. Any help would be great - Thanks

My 4GB Gigaware SDHC memory card won't work on my camera. It used to work but then I tried it recently then the camera just takes out the lens and freezes. My other memory card works so it has to be the memory card. Can I do anything to fix it? If I can keep the photos in it I would prefer that but if it needs to be erased it is fine. I tried to access and format it on my computer but neither works. I can't access it at all.

I won a Canon PowerPoint S3 IS at an eBay auction; it was in the working camera listings. It turned out that in the finer detail, the owner said that everything worked except for the "Memory Card Error" found in the display window. I posted this a few days ago. I now have the camera, and I've tried two different memory cards (one came out of another Canon PowerPoint, and it does work) and neither works. Still have the same message;"Memory Card Error." This item was incorrectly listed as working.
