Customer Question

I have a Pentax 90X. It takes great pictures! I bought a new memory card with 64 GB and when I put it in the camera, it tells me "memory error". What is the problem? The card seems OK if I put it in another camera or in my computer. Thank you.

Any new card that you try to use, 64gb or larger capacity (SDXC) will fail, because unfortunately, an SDXC card, 64gb or larger, will not work in this camera. Because it was made around 2010, before the larger capacity memory card format was finalized and incorporated, the Pentax 90X model can only use SD (up to 4gb) & SDHC (up to 32gb) cards that are up to 32gb or less in capacity. Please see th Pentax information at the link below.
