My Lumix DMC FZ30 use to work using a 4gb SDHC SanDisk card, but now says, "Memory card error please check the card". However, the card works fine in any other cameras. A small pocket Fujifilm camera for example. I was told to reformat the card in the camera, but I'm unable to use any part of the FZ30 camera while the card is inserted and on. Please help as I want to use my 4gb card and not just the 2gb ones which work fine so I know it's not a problem with the camera reading memory cards, just


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

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.

When I insert my memory card into my printer, all that pops up is "Memory Card Error." I really want to get my pictures off of the memomry card and into my computer, so this is getting pretty frustrating. I was going to reformat the card in the camera, but that will apparently erase all the pictures from the card. I had taken this memory card to Walgreens last summer and gotten pictures off of it, so I don't understand why it won't work now. It's a 4GB Kodak memory card... If you could h

Picture error I have a problem with my Olympus SP 500UZ. When I take a couple of pictures on one day. Shut the camera down and start it later on to take new pictures. The screen turns blue when I want to see the pictures. It gives the message: Picture Error or Fatal error and every photo on the memory card is gone! I send it to the Olympus repair for three times now, but they tell me every time that there's nothing wrong with the camera. Is this a known problem??

Memory card errors. I turn it on and get message MEMORY CARD ERROR PLEASE CHECK CARD. Occurs on different cards. Sometimes I can clean the contacts on the card and it will work. Sometimes, I can take pictures but if I remove the card it cannot be read if install it back or by a computer or printer. I use the camera as publicity in trade shows taking then printing pictures, so the cards are removed and inserted constantly. I have reformatted the card in the camera, still fails.

I have a Sony DSC-H7. 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). I went to the Internal Memory tool on the camera and it only shows an option to format the cameras built in memory space. I have heard these cards can just go out but I want to make sure there is no option of reformat. Thank you!

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

Olympus D-435 Our camera has been working fine until last week when we started getting this error message - memory full on a blue screen when we had taken only one photo (and deleted all previous photos). Thinking there was a problem with the memory card, we removed it and used only the camera's internal memory which worked for a short while - allowing us to take 12 shots - but now it will only let us take 1 shot before giving us the error message. Is there anything I can do? Many thanks
