I have a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ30 camera.
For seemingly no reason when I put in a memory card it shows 'MEMORY CARD ERROR PLEASE CHECK THE CARD.
I have tried about four with the same result and have bought a new Panasonic SD 4GB but show same error.
I have an old, Panasonic SD 32MB card which WORKS!
What could be the trouble please?

Can you tell me the sizes of the cards (8GB ect) that do not work in the camera?

Thank you

I have tried




only the 32MB worked although I have used the larger ones before without any problem.

ok, 2GB is the maximum size it accepts Lynn, and they have to be SD not SDHC cards.

Is the 2GB just SD? As it will error like this if it is SDHC, which is likely to be the issue (as the 32MB is 100% SD as SDHC never came out so small)
