Hi Guys and Gals

Got a problem, The G12 just stopped reading the 32GB Ultima Class 10 SD Card.
I've re formated it (FAT32) still no joy.
Also will not read the other 8GB ScanDisk Ultra 20MB/s card as well.
I used a card out of my friends camera (4 GB standard SD card) worked fine.

What could be going on ?
Ive tested the two cards in other camera's no problem with them.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks
Carl

That statement makes me think you've formatted the card out-of-camera. Have you tried doing a low level format in-camera the way Canon suggests? This yields a specific file structure.

If you still have issues, you might try a format using the SD Association formatter, then follow by an in-camera low level format. You can find the SD Association standard at

Thanks for the answer but the card is not recognised in the G12 (No Memory Card) message
I did format the card inside an Olympus VG-130 , put the card in the G12 same message (No Memory Card)
Any more Idea's
Update: The 8GB card that originaly stopped working is now working fine :rolleyes:

Weird

Never but NEVER !!, use an OLY to format a card to be used in a Canon. Oly has an entirely different format structure, and so does your computer. In fact never! format any card, outside of its intended camera of use. The differences show more quickly on large capacity cards, than on smaller ones (which will most of the time "luckily", go on working).

THANKS for your answer..
I will keep that in mind from now on..

Is there a way to get the card to work again in the Camera?

This may sound elementary, but is there any foreign matter on the card contacts, such as dust? Or in the slot?
Try wiping the card contacts with a cotton rag with a bit of isopropyl alcohol on it.
Blow in the slot to dislodge any dust - careful not to spit in it!!

Well, I have successfully recovered some cards, by reformatting them in a Fuji camera. Fuji reformats with zero filling, other cameras just write over old files. That's why it is all but impossible!, to recover lost files from a Fuji camera.

So if you have a buddy that has a Fuji, give it a try, it just might work. After you reformat with the Fuji, be sure to format again with the Canon before you use it. So the Canon, can install its file folders. Or you might be able to con a dealer, into letting you try it on one of their Fuji's.

I used to have a couple of old Fuji's, that's how I found out about using them to reformat fowled up cards. :) And by the fact, that they also 0 fill the cards. That's how tech's recover screwed up PC hard drives, by zero filling them. A long costly process, on a computer hard drive.
