8GB CENTON SDHC memory card - class 4 - worked okay first day. Removed card to transfer pics to computer. Did fine. When inserted card back in camera JVC-PICSIO GC-FM2BU, got "Memory Card Error" message. Could not reformat. Still okay incomputer, so reformatted in computer. Back in camera, got same message. Tried in other cameras - got same error message. FYI, card is NOT locked!

Sounds like you forgot to use the "safely remove hardware" when you removed the card from the computer. Also, never format a card in a computer and then expect it to work in a camera. You can try to format it a few more times in the camera but if not ... Digital Cameras

I have a Pentax K 100 D. I have tried using a Flash Memory card (a Sandisk Ultra 16GB) but without success. The message 'Memory Card Error" is displayed even before I could format it. The card had previously been used to store files from my PC (where it worked perfectly) but the camera could not format it even after I had removed all the files etc by reformatting it in the PC (FAT32). Is there any way I can get to use this flash card in my camera?

CF error I own a Canon 400D. It worked perfectly until today. I inserted the cf card, and turned on the camera. It took a couple of seconds to light up, and I got a message that the cf card was faulty and needs to be replaced. I used another one...it said the same thing. I tried reformatting.

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

I have a Nikon E5400, ver 1.3. I bought a 4GB Kingston CF card; the package said "formatted and ready to use". On inserting into camera, the message flashed that the card is not formatted. So I proceeded to format. The next message that flashes is "Out of Memory". Questions: 1) is the CF card defective? 2) is E5400 incapable of reading a 4GB CF card, should we use only CF cards <1GB? 3) Will a firmware version upgrade to v1.4 help? 4) Any other reason why this could happen?

I bought a new vivitar vivicam t324n digital camera. I used an SD card that I had previously used in my old vivitar vivicam3935. All the pictures have a reddish hue. When I called vivitar the 1st time they told my to reformat my sd card (they didn't tell me how and I don't know how to do this). When I called the 2nd time they told me I could only use a new sd card. Is any of this correct?
