Answers :

Yeah, Unfortunately some devices can not read the HC or high capacity cards, mainly older devices. You will have to settle for the smaller card or upgrade the card reader or other device.

Given the age of this camera you won't be able to find a cable. What do you mean by you don't have a card reader large enough? Do you mean for that type of card? There are many universal card readers out there for cheap that would help you: ... Sanyo VPC-Z380 Digital Camera

Most cameras take a little longer to capture the photo in darker conditions, with a moving subject, things like that, though if the photos you're taking now are under the same conditions as the ones you used to that shouldn't be the issue.

FujiFilm s700 I recently tried to use and 8 gb card with my s700. I actually could use it. however when i tried to download the photos the camera would not turn on.

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. The memory card I am using is the same one I used a few months ago and I saved the pictures I took to a computer and erased the pictures off the card. 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. Please HELP!


Do not use the computer to erase the card. This is the reason your camera no longer recognizes the card. Now you need to format the card in the camera to get it to work properly. ... Digital Cameras

My Canon SD 870 Camera came with a free SD card. Everything seems fine with the card until I try to download the pictures to my computer. I used the camera to format the card after the first time I had problems. I assumed this would fix it but it has happened again. I don't have problems with my other memory cards, just the one this camera came with. I can view the most recent pictures using the camera but how do I transfer the pictures to my computer? Thanks.

Shutter Lag All, I have an Olympus 5050 Digital Camera that I have been using for a while now for home use and I am quite happy with the results. The only complaint I have is with the capture speed of the camera. The shutter lag seems to be about between 3-5 seconds which becomes quite obvious while taking pictures of moving objects (moving kids). I don't know if the issue is with the shutter speed of the camera or with the slower memory cards. I am using the SimpleTecg 256 MB Compact Flash card


Card speed won't interfere with shutter lag.\015\012\015\012The lag is much less (near non-existent) if you pre-focus. Or use manual focus with small enough aperture to get lots of depth of field. Make sure your kids are in the focus zone and just sn ... Olympus Camedia C-5050 Zoom Digital Camera

I press OK and then it gives me the message that everything on the card will be lost. I press OK and 2 seconds later it starts all over again saying the card needs to be formated. I never seems to actually format the card it just repeats over and over. The new card slider doesn't work -- it's in the up position -- that's the same as the o
