Memory card error in 8GB card
\015 I bought a 8GB sd memory card and I get a memory card error.\015\012is there any chance the camera does not support this kind of size?\015
Try to re-insert the card. If that doesn't help try to reformat it/delete all its contents. Also check in the manual what kinds of cards does the camera generally work with (although i doubt that is the problem).

Memory card Our old memory card stopped working in the camera. It said "memory card error". I bought a new card, 8gb duracell sdhc card, and when I put it in it said"memory card error" again. I tried formatting the card but it would not allow me to. I put the card in my computer and the new one works fine. I gave the old card to my brother in law to look at it, but he is on vacation, so I can't test it in my computer. I put the card that came with the camera in and it works fine, but it is a mmc
Unfortunately, the A520 does not support SD memory cards with more than 2GB capacity, and doesn't support SDHC at all. (1GB max for MMC cards.) I know memory is much cheaper than when the camera first came out, but in 2005 2GB was about as large as y ... Canon PowerShot A520 Digital Camera

8GB CENTON SDHC memory card - class 4 - worked okay first day. Removed card to transfer pics to computer. Did fine. When inserted card back in camera JVC-PICSIO GC-FM2BU, got "Memory Card Error" message. Could not reformat. Still okay incomputer, so reformatted in computer. Back in camera, got same message. Tried in other cameras - got same error message. FYI, card is NOT locked!
Sounds like you forgot to use the "safely remove hardware" when you removed the card from the computer. Also, never format a card in a computer and then expect it to work in a camera. You can try to format it a few more times in the camera but if not ... Digital Cameras

Your camera was designed (2004) and manufactured (mostly 2005) before current generation SDHC cards became available. It will therefore be incompatible at the basic hardware level. There were some non-standard SDHC cards around in 2006 but your camer ... Acer CE-5330 Digital Camera

I can't download my photos onto the computer from my samsung l310w camera. the memory card is sandisk SDHD card 8gb. the camera doesn't seem to be compatible with the card for some reason - when trying to flick through pictures it flashes and eventually says file error. the computer will pick up the photos initially then won't transfer them. my printer has a memory card slot and even that won't recognise the card anymore!
The problem could be that the computer will not read the large card, I know my two year old Acer will not read the 8 gig cards directly from a card reader. The solution may be to revert back to smaller cards. ... Sakar 23070 Digital Camera

I have just bought a 8GB Panasonic memory chip for my Kyocera Finecam M410R camera. But it comes up with card error on it. I put back my little old 124mg card and it is fine. Can I use a panasonic card with my camera or does it have to be a Kyocera one which my smaller one is?
The brand isn't important. The 8GB card is an SDHC(secure digital high capacity) card and the smaller one is an SD. Your camera may not be able to use an SDHC card. Try formatting it in the camera before giving up on it. ... Kyocera Finecam M410R Digital Camera

Inserting either a 4Gb or 8Gb SD card results in a "Memory Card Error".
The S4 accepts SD and MMC cards. SD cards max out at 2Gb. The 4Gb and 8Gb cards are actually SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) cards, not SD cards, and thus will not work in devices designed for SD cards. Compatibility goes only one way--SD cards w ... Pentax Optio S4 Digital Camera

The A620 works with MMC and SD cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they will not work. You need to use SD cards 2GB and smaller. ... Canon Digital Cameras

The S5i uses SD cards. This means you can use microSD cards with an adapter. However, your 8GB card is actually a microSDHC card, which with the adapter appears to the camera as an SDHC card. SDHC cards are electronically incompatible with SD devices ... Pentax Optio S5i Digital Camera

Technically speaking, SD cards only go up to 2GB. (Actually, some very rare 4GB SD cards exist, but I doubt you have one of those.) Cards 4GB and up are SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) cards. Your camera was designed before the SDHC specs, and th ... Kodak EasyShare P850 Digital Camera
