Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 Digital Camera ?

When I turn my camera on it reads "pictures will be recorded to built in memory". I have an SD ultra II 4.GB memory card inserted which I know isn't full. How do I get my camera to save to memory card? Regards Michelle B


Answers :

A card that size is actually an SDHC card. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but they are slightly different. Many cameras won't work with the SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

I expect your camera just won't work with this kind of card. It is often difficult to find out the maximum capacity memory card a camera will use, as today's cards are much larger that those available when the manual for the camera was written.

I have a Sanyo Xactiphoto and video camera. I fear I have lost 8 Gig of pictures, however, it may be there but I am not accessing it correctly. I know I used up all the memory and I get a message on activating the camera telling me something like 'star two the internal memory". Is it possible that the card is full and the camera has reverted to the internal memory? If so, how do I retrieve the data on the card? Thanks. Nick

When I put the memory card in the camera it says 'cannot read' it. How do I format the card? I know it has the right 'size' memory.

Now as soon as I turn the camera on it says 'This card cannot be read'. Im frustrated as there is nothing in the manual that seems to get my camera working again. I have only had it for a year.

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.
