I'm sorry about your camera issue. I'm glad to assist you today. It looks like your exact camera model is K100d. It depend on your camera's firmware version. Please turn off your camera. Then press and keep holding down the Menu button while turning on the camera, then it will show the firmware version for a couple of seconds.

- (Note: Your camera definitely does not support SDHC memory card type, which has size of 64GB or higher.)
