Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

All sd cards come up with card error as soon as they are fitted


Answers :

There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". Some include trying to use a 4GB or higher SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Others include problems with the tiny slide switch on the side of the card, or the electrical contact switch internal to the camera. The problem may also arise from simple formatting problems if the card has never been formatted in the camera (note that this will also erase the card).

Format error I have a Samsung digimax A40 camera. I 've just purchased a Lexar 4gb SDHC card. When I've tried to format the card for use, the screen comes up initially with "card error", then a screen to format - yes/no. When I press on yes, it takes a few moments and then comes up with Format Error, and turns itself off. Any suggestions on how to overcome this? We are heading away on holiday soon and wanted a bigger sd card as I currently only have a 256mb card in it. Thanks, Tracey.

Picture error I have an Olympus SP-51OUZ camera. Nearly every photo I take, when reviewed, comes up with 'picture error' and a big warning exclamation mark (in red on a blue background). Only about 1 in 20 photos taken are ok. I have formatted the card but it still happens. When I used the card on my laptop it scanned it & said there were no problems with it. Obviously it's a nightmare because I have to review every single photo to check it has come out! Please help! Rachel

Hi, I purchased a FinePix S2500HD recently and a Class10 32GB Adata SDHC card. The camera works fine with the internal memory when the SDHC card is not inserted. But when I insert the SDHC card, it comes up with "Card Error". When I proceed to format the card, it gives me "Protected Card" error.
