Answers :

512MB SD card is the maximum with early versions of firmware.

To check firmware version in camera:-

switch on, press MENU.

select 'Setup' and then select the '1' tab (it may be the only choice, depends on which shooting mode was set)

Press Macro button and the firmware version is displayed.

If it is 1.02 or lower the you need to upgrade to version 1.03.

Then you can use 2GB SD cards.

The firmware is readily available from several websites. You will need a 512MB or lower card to do the upgrade.
The Dimage Z3 accept SD cards up to 1GB (Minolta says 512 Mb, and sold it with 16Mb). This camera is 4MP , and uses less memory on card, therefore a 512MB card will be enough for it.

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?


First, with no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Then, insert the card and do the "format" thing again to optimize the card for the camera. Now, it should work pro ... Kodak EasyShare CX7430 Digital Camera

The camera accepts a memory card of 256 MB but rejects a new memory card of 4 GB, initially I thought it was a card problem so exchanged the card for a new one of the same capacity but still the same problem - could it be that the camera is not capable of working with a high capacity card.
