Having problems with your Pentax Optio A10 Digital Camera ?

When 4 gig. sd hc memory card is loaded into camera CARD IS IN ERROR msg. appears on lcd screen. Any ideas???

Answers :

The A10 uses SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work with the A10. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.
