Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ20 Digital Camera ?

How big a memory card can you put in a DMC-FZ20 camera? I just got an 8 GB card and get "Memory Card Error" all the time.The old 256 MB card works fine.


Answers :

An 8GB card is not SD, but SDHC (High Capacity). SDHC cards fit the same slot as SD cards, but they are slightly different and many cameras do not work with them.

I have a DMC-FZ20 myself, and use a 1GB card. That is really plenty of space. If you want more (going on holiday?) then just carry a couple of spares. The manual doesn't mention memory cards larger than 1GB. Probably there weren't any when it was written.

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 Nikon d40x is roughly three years old and the lens has had to have been repaired twice due to it being dropped. Lens is working fine though now. Yesterday i was getting out my car and the camera fell out my bag, the lens still works fine but now the camera is refusing to take more than 1 photo and saying "card is full". Tried my brothers memory card in it and its doing the same although his memory card works fine with his camera (nikon d60). Someone help!

Hello Sir.Madam, I have DSC-H10 digital camera. It is having memory of type "Memory Stick Pro Duo". This card was working fine till the day.

Hi. I have a 16GB memory card. I checked it several times with h2testw software and it's working fine. After I shoot about 4GB I start getting "unidentified image" when I try to see the pitcures. After a while I get "memory card error". I can get all the pictures out (without taking the memory card out). After I format the card it's OK again. Any ideas? Thanks

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.

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


You can try updating the firmware of the camera since this is not a problem with the memory card its with the camera itself you can check Olympus web site for software update on this.Hope that helps....... ... Digital Cameras

Card error I have a e-1. Two memory cards with 1 and 2 gb. I get a "card error" message when I insert either into the camera. I brought it to one camera shop. They said that a couple of the pins (that connect the memory card to the brains of the camera) were bent. Recently took it to another repair shop and he inserted a card with less memory and the camera worked. Is it the cards or the camera? Will the camera work (with bent pins or whatever) if I get a new memory card?
