FAQ - Why is my old camera not able to use my new 4GB SDHC card?

In order for a device to use the new SD High Capacity cards the host controller in the device must be SD Specification 2 compliant.  This means that the camera (or any device that uses a SD card) must have been designed to use SD cards in capacities higher than 2GB.  Usually you will see the SDHC logo printed on the device or in the user guide.

 

If you are not sure, contact the manufacturer of the device and inquire as to whether their product is SDHC compatible.

 

This not only applies to full size SDHC cards, but also miniSDHC and microSDHC cards, too.

BECAUSE THEY ONLY WORK IN VERY NEW CAMERAS.  BUT WORK GREAT FOR STORAGE WITH AN ADAPTER INTO USB. I LOVE MINE.

This usually has to do with the 2gig FAT partition limit.  Most old cameras can't read a FAT32 formatted memory stick, or NTFS for that matter.  Try to reformat in FAT if you want to use it, albeit with 2 gig limit, or get a 2gig stick.  Or as others would suggest, get a new camera.
