Having problems with your Pentax EI-100 Digital Camera ?

I purchased an SDHC card for my pentax K100 and it does not work - any suggestions?

Answers :

Unfortunately, with the current software onboard the k100d isn't compatible with a sdhc card. It looks like it's max capacity is 2gig.
There's some hope that there may be a firmware upgrade for the camera later, but for now it's limited to 2g cards.

My DV179 Camcorder works fine with the SD 2GB memory card it came with. I surely do like it. I have need for greater capicit. So I purchased a SDHC 8GB memory When I tried to record to it (approx 30 minutes worth) it appeared to accept the information. I tried to thransfer the information to my computer but i could not get it to transfer to my HD. Is the SDGC memory card not compatible with the DV179. What do you suggest?

Hi, I purchased a FinePix S2500HD recently and a Class10 32GB Adata SDHC card. The camera works fine with the internal memory when the SDHC card is not inserted. But when I insert the SDHC card, it comes up with "Card Error". When I proceed to format the card, it gives me "Protected Card" error. Is this because of any known incompatibility issues between the two? Any help on this issue will be appreciated. Regards, KK

Format error I have a Samsung digimax A40 camera. I 've just purchased a Lexar 4gb SDHC card. When I've tried to format the card for use, the screen comes up initially with "card error", then a screen to format - yes/no. When I press on yes, it takes a few moments and then comes up with Format Error, and turns itself off. Any suggestions on how to overcome this? We are heading away on holiday soon and wanted a bigger sd card as I currently only have a 256mb card in it. Thanks, Tracey.

I don't believe the camera can handle a card of that size. I believe the camera only supports up to 512MB cards, anything above that is not guaranteed. \015\012\015\012 ... Samsung Digimax A40 Digital Camera

The card is obviously too large, in memory capacity terms, for the camera. In fact, it might not be an SD card, but an SDHC card. "SD" cards larger than about 2GB are actually SDHC cards. I'm not sure about the 2GB ones, maybe there are some of each ... Canon PowerShot A530 Digital Camera

My E15 works Ok with my SanDisk 2 GB SD card and with my SanDisk 4 GB SDHC card. It also works without a card. When I insert another card and press the power button, it turns on, but all buttons are locked. The only way I can shut it off is to remove the battery. Cards that do not work: SanDisk 8GB SDHC, SanDisk 8 GB SDHC Utra, 4 GB PNY SDHC.

Whatever is going on here is going to end up being at the card detection level, which means to repair it, the main control board would have to be changed out, and that would be an expensive fix. I couldn't find a model E15 on the net, and am uncer ... Digital Cameras

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.
