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.

My E15 works Ok with my SanDisk 2 GB SD card and with my SanDisk 4 GB SDHC card. It also works without a card. When I insert another card and press the power button, it turns on, but all buttons are locked. The only way I can shut it off is to remove the battery. Cards that do not work: SanDisk 8GB SDHC, SanDisk 8 GB SDHC Utra, 4 GB PNY SDHC.


Whatever is going on here is going to end up being at the card detection level, which means to repair it, the main control board would have to be changed out, and that would be an expensive fix. I couldn't find a model E15 on the net, and am uncer ... Digital Cameras

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. Is this because of any known incompatibility issues between the two? Any help on this issue will be appreciated. Regards, KK

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.

Nikon COOLPIX S710 stops working after battery and/or memory card are removed. I have reformed the memory card (no change). Purchased 2X new batteries (no change). One of the original batteries will allow the camera to work, directly after a fresh charge, but not after it is removed, unless directly after insertion from being freshly charged. Have checked all 4 different batteries and voltages all appear at of above specified 3.7 VDC. Still only one of the 4 will ever allow the camera to functio

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

Canon ixy 700 works fine with SD memory card 512KB. Purchased a new 16GB card but when I get a "Memory Card Error". I figure it's a firmware issue that isn't handling cards of this size.
