Size of sd card

\015 Ive seen somewhere recently that i cant use an sd card larger than 1gb, however ive just ordered an sd card which is 2gb. does this mean i cant use the 2gb card in my camera?\015

Hey there harad82, many digital cameras have difficulty formatting and thus difficulty recognising larger size memory cards. This limitation is due to the date of design of the camera, and the only recent availability of the larger memory cards. Also the processor power onboard many cameras is quite limited and cannot handle too much information, such as when one of these cards begins to fill. This can result in lost data. I would suggest you try one before purchasing, perhaps a friend can help with a loner or you can check your cameras specs for limitations on card size. The smaller size cards (512mb or less) rarely cause these difficulties. If you need help with specs please respond with your camera make and model#. Good Luck!

Canon ZR200 memory card say ''card error'' when inserted. Card is not locked. I have formatted it. Have used 3 different sizes of cards.

THANK YOU.

You can buy an adaptor for the card (I assume you have a micro SD card and your camcorder takes a standard or mini SD card). Try a camera shop for adaptors. It will cost only a little bit more to buy the correct size card. ... Digital Cameras

I have a 256MB compactflash memory card for the coolpix 4300 that was bought over 7 years ago. I went to Radio Shack and Walmart looking for another. The salesperson told me that the SandDisk 8GB compactflash memory card would work. I tried it and it doesn't. The screen on the camera reads do you want to format the card. I selected yes, but it doesn't work. Is there anyway I could make the card work. It's the same size and look as the 256MB card.

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!

256mb Card I have a Camedia Digital Camera C-5050 ZOOM. I have 3 xD cards for it, a 32mb, a 256mb and a 2gb card.

I have a FinePix 1400 zoom that has been causing a lot of problems. It has errors often when trying to write an image to the card and sometimes seems to suddenly power off when viewing images. It doesn't appear to be batteries because I've tried fresh ones straight out of the package. I don't think it's the Smart Media card because it does the same thing with 3 different cards of different sizes. Any ideas?
