Can you read the card in a PC (if you have a card reader that is)? If you cannot read it in a PC the card may be faulty. Try another card, first in the PC (to make sure it works) then in the camera.

What error message are you receiving?

Are the cards being detected?

Did you try formatting the card in the camera?


I have tried a couple different cards that are designated to use for the L820 and it still comes up cannot read ? I have inserted the card in my computer and earlier I had downloaded some software to format the card ,but is there a certain way / steps to make it format ?


Hi @curt56 ,

I realize that you said that you tried "cards that are designated to use for the L820" Just verifying that the cards you are trying are one of the following types and sizes:

1. SD card max 2GB

2. SDHC card max 32GB

3. SDXC card max either 64GB or 128GB depending on manufacturer.

You don't need special software to format a SD/SDHC/SDXC card in a PC. The PC can already do it.

Here is a link that shows how to do it.
