Digital Camera Repair Questions? Ask a Camera Expert.
Hello! Thank you for your question. I will be assisting you today.
I'm sorry about the issue. Is the old memory card still working with your camera? What's the type of the new memory card, i.e., SD or SDHC? What's the size of the new memory card, such as 1GB, 2GB, 4GB, 8GB, etc.?
Please check for the lock switch on the memory card. Please type in the box below, then click on the Reply button at the bottom in order to chat with me. Thank you,
It was the old card that presented the problem which is why I installed a new one. The new card is an Optima 8 GB
What was the issue with the old card?
The same as with the new one "Memory card error" and "card locked"
Can you check for the lock switch on the old memory card?
; don't try the new memory card; please check that the switch on the old memory card is not in the lock position
Where youve shown the red arrow, its towards the top not the bottom and its the same on the new one
it should show where the lock position; please check on the old memory card
by the way, what's the size of your old memory card?
Size on old memory card 512 MB
try the switch either way on the old memory cardand put it in the camera and check
looks like the old memory card working but the new one is still saying memory card error
Here is the issue:
1. Your old memory card is still working fine; it was just in the locked position
2. This is an old camera's model; it only supports SD memory cards, not SDHC memory cards
, so it only supports memory card that has size of 2GB or less
You can get an SD 2GB memory card, it is 4 times bigger than your 512MB memory card
Note: 1GB = 1,024MB.
Do you have any further question?
No - thank you very much indeed I think you've solved my problem
