Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-LC33 Digital Camera ?

My camera doesn't recognize the memory card

\015 I have a panasonic Lumix dmc-fs3 camera that I have barely used. Now when I put the memory card in it doesn't recognize it. When I turn the camera on it says "pictures will be recorded to built in memory" . When I try to copy the built in memory pics to the card, it won't let me access the "copy" function. Under the "format" function- it doesn't recognize the memory card either, instead asking if I want to delete the built in memory. Any suggestions?\015

Answers :

The problem may be simpler to solve. Perhaps you never normally change the setting from iA (intelligent auto), but the wheel with settings can get moved by accident. If it goes around one place counter-clockwise, it puts it onto the built-in memory, it seems. I had the same problem, and it frustrated me for months!
