Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I have a finepix A805 and it keeps saying that my images are being saved to Internal Memory but I have a SD card in my camera. My SD card is not locked why wont my camera read the card?


Answers :

If you don't have anything stored on the SD card I recommend formatting it, otherwise it will not work with your camera.

Go on the camera's menu and look for a function called 'Format'. Do this and then see if the pictures will save on the SD card.

Cannon SD1100 IS Digital Camera The Camera reads " Card Locked". The Maual's solution is to slide the switch up on the memory card. Did that still won't work. When I go to the Menu, the cursor will just bypass the "erase" and will light up below the erase display. Have never had this happen. I was trying to erase a movie, and this locked up. Tried another "card" the camera still reads "card locked". It has to be something in the camera. Thanks for your 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.

I have a Kodak easyshare m320 which I recieved today. I bought an SD card to go with it because the internal memory is really small. Near the card port, it says it accepts SD cards, and it also says this on the manual, but the card I bought for it is not being read by the camera. I can put the card in my computer and it works fine, though, so I don't know what the problem is. Do I need to do something to my camera in order to make it use the card rather than internal memory?

My Kodak M530 had been working alright since I bought it on December 2010 but suddenly stopped reading the SDHC card about a week ago. The card is fine because I can read the content from my Mac.

After removing the memory card to process some photos at a local walgreens, I went to re insert it, and after I did the camera doesn't seem to read the memory card(SanDisk ProDuo 2.0 Gb).

Hey. I bought a new camera some days ago with a new Digix 4gb SDHC memory card. I went to Disney World and took normally a lot of pictures. From one moment to another, the camera gives me the message "Memory card error" and won't let me take nor view pictures. I tried removing the memory card and everything. I checked and It isn't locked or something. Also, I tried using a memory card reader on my laptop, and it says I have to format to read the card. I REALLY don't want to lose the pictures.
