4Gb SD Card Problems

  VideoSentry 13:32 05 Sep 2007

I have recently bought a 4Gb SD card to use in my camera,though when trying to read the card I have to use the camera on the USB link as nothing else works -4 seperate computers,4 separate card readers and variations of all.Any ideas anyone?

So what you're saying is that your camera can't read you're memory card?

Just a guess but Windows may have a problem reading a 4GB drive which has been formatted as FAT (FAT16) which is what a camera uses.

I've just run FDISK on a hard drive and it indicates that Windows cannot format a single drive larger than 2GB as FAT, it must use FAT32, so its possible that it also cannot use a FAT16 drive larger than 2GB.

4gb SD card will be HC (high capacity). To read these you will need a HC reader, (SDHC). Normal readers will not work.

A-Nonymous: The camera has no problem.
g0nvs: I will try and find one ( it is SDHC )

Yet again thanks and I will post a solution when(if) I find one.
