Having problems with your Toshiba PDR-3330 Digital Camera ?

I have a Toshiba $GB SDHC Memory Card. I put it in the camera and camera says card is locked. I have slid the yellow lock button and it does not unlock. I also have PNY OPTIMA that has the same problem. Can you help me? Laurie [email protected]

Answers :

Your main problem is that you are trying to use a 4GB SDHC card in an approximately 8 year old camera which was only designed to accept a maximum 512MB SD card and which only worked reliably with 256MB SD cards. When your camera was designed, 128MB cards were the largest size available and so hardware testing only went up that far.

SDHC cards use a different memory structure to SD cards and older devices cannot use them even though they will fit in the slot. As it's a hardware limitation there is no firmware update option.

Your only fix is to obtain the correct type and capacity of SD card or to replace your camera with one which accepts SDHC cards.

I have a brand new PNY Optima SD card I wish to use with my easy share camera. When I insert the card into the camera it says the memory card requires formatting, then continues to say formatting will delete everything on the memory card. It repeats and WILL NOT FORMAT. I cannot even get to the MENU to format the card. I am not concerned about getting pictures OFF the card - the issue is that I cannot format the card to use in the camera. Yet my Kodak manual says I can. Why won't the camera form
