Reader can't read Smart Media Card

  MoiraB 18:54 17 Jul 2003

I recently bought a Jessop's 32mb SmartMedia card to use in our Fuji FinePix 2600 camera. I have managed to read the card supplied with the camera in in Hama reader via USB port without problems. I formatted the new card in the camera but the reader will not read it. Any ideas?

I only took the card from its packaging today so shouldn't be damaged but I can't take it back to Jessops as I bought it in Berkshire and we're in Scotland!

Why not take the card AND the card reader in to your local Jessops store and ask them to check it out.

It does not matter which branch of jessops you purchased the card from, just take it bake to your local branch and they should be able to check it and replace if found to be faulty.

Thanks folks, I'll take both with me next time I'm in the nearest town with a Jessops.

I took both with me today but Jessops couldn't check the reader as they didn't have the driver, however checked the card on a couple of machines and fine, so concluded that there must be some slight difference between Jessops card and the original Fuji card (i.e. very slightly thicker or something)so they changed it for a Fuji card - problem solved!

Never heard of that before but nice of Jessops to replace it with a Fuji card as I presume they're more expensive. Too few places give good service these days. Well done to Jessops.
