Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ30 Digital Camera ?

I have a Panassonic DMC0-FZ30 approx 3 years old SD cards 1 nd 2 GB work perfecxtly but the 4GB does not work at all. What is te answer?


Answers :

Since your model is capable of handling both Secure Digital (SD and SDHC) storage, there is only one of three problems. The easiest is that the card is "write protected" meaning that there is a little switch on the card itself.Slide the switch forward to unlock it. If that is not the issue, the card may be needing formatting. Insert the card into the camera and use the format utility, or insert it into your computer and format it that way. Lastly, it could be a bad card. More than likely, it is one of the two prior explanations. I hope this helps and good luck!

The camear only works with SD Memory Card (SD) or Multimedia Card (MMC) up to 2Gb and will not work with a 4Gb card. It would need an additional address line to use 4Gb and it is simply not part of the design.

My Kodak C190 will not read the card. I cannot format it in the camera because IT WON'T READ IT IN THE CAMERA. I keep seeing the same answer - "format in the camera" - but it can't read it. Now what ? I have I tried three other cards of varying sizes - 2gb, 4gb, 8gb, and 16gb - none were able to be read. The camera works fine with its internal memory, but that doesn't hold much at all. Any help would be great - Thanks

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.

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

I have a problem with my card-reader inside the camera and am not able to shoot any pictures at the moment.

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.
