Having problems with your Samsung Digimax 130 Digital Camera ?

Installing a Sandisk 4GB memory card in my Samsung Digimax 130 camera produces an alert "card error" on the LCD display. Can I fix that? Connecting to my PC's USB port doesn't allow me to take photos or format the card, either. I get the "card error" alert no matter how I configure my connections to the camera or a card reader.

Answers :

Card error means the camera wants you to format the card in the camera, not the computer.

Olympus D-435 Our camera has been working fine until last week when we started getting this error message - memory full on a blue screen when we had taken only one photo (and deleted all previous photos). Thinking there was a problem with the memory card, we removed it and used only the camera's internal memory which worked for a short while - allowing us to take 12 shots - but now it will only let us take 1 shot before giving us the error message. Is there anything I can do? Many thanks

You can try updating the firmware of the camera since this is not a problem with the memory card its with the camera itself you can check Olympus web site for software update on this.Hope that helps....... ... Digital Cameras

We own a Fuji Digital camerca model S700 and recently purchased a 1 gig memory card. We were taking photos on the weekend (photos which now can't be replaced) and we had a card error come up and the camera completely froze.
