Memory Card Error with Sony 32GB SDHC Class 10

I just purchased a Pentax K-01 and also a Sony 32GB SDHC. According to the Pentax website, the card should be small enough to be compatible. I already updated the K-01's firmware with an old 1GB SD card but it still cannot read my Sony card. The Sony card works fine with my computer, so I am not sure why it doesn't work with the K-01. I get the memory card error message when I try to format the card on the camera as well.

Any ideas?

Yeah, the lock is off. I can write to it and read from it perfectly fine from my computer.

Can you explain in more detail? Do you have any other Pentax cameras to try the SD card on? Does it save any photos, or does it not get recognized at all?
Basically, you need to make sure its facing the right way, slide it in until it clicks, then close the get and then slide the rubber flip.
To remove it, you push it in until it clicks and the camera lets go of it, then just gently pull it out.

Oh, and btw, I also have a Sony class 10 card and sometimes get write errors. But for individual photos, not all photos. So I can take a bunch of photos and then it has a hiccup. Usually turning the camera off, taking the card out and putting it back in fixes it. But Ive basically stopped using that card for that reason. I had best experiences with Sandisk.

I dont have any other cameras to test it with. I get the error when he camera boots up. I get the error again if I try to format it or take pictures. I don't think the camera recognizes it at all.

I think we had a report of this problem before for the Sony Class 10 cards but a quick search did not turn up that thread. I'd return it and buy a SanDisk Extreme III - they're the best and not too expensive either.

Weird. I feel your pain, but I really don't think its the camera, especially it works with other cards and the firmware is updated to the newest version.

Same problem, received my 32 GB UHS I C10 40*mb/s SDHC I card from Adorama today and get the memory card read error. The card works fine in the computer and my old Cannon SD1200 PowerShot. Formatted it both in the computer and the PowerShot with no luck of working in my K-01.

Must be just a compatibility problem then. Guess I am in the matket for an SD card again.

Can you guys maybe send an email to your local Pentax repair shop? And specify as much detail as possible (firmware, card name, when the error occurs, what it says). Maybe they can give you a more technical answer.

I just purchased a Sony SDXC class 10 64 GB and it is working perfectly with my K-01. Perhaps the Sony SDHC isn't supported?

Hi
I Just receive my "Sony 16GB Carte mémoire SDHC UHS-1 Classe 10" buy on Amazon web site : here but My K-30 (Fw 1.04) don't work with it... error message " ERREUR CARTE MEMOIRE" on boot, impossible to format it from the camera...
The card work fine with and Canon EOS 600D, and on my computer.
I'm on a "club photo", and we have the same issue with another K30 in Fw1.00 and antother in Fw1.02....
I try to send back the card to the vendor, but I must buy another Brand cards, I think the issus is on the "SONY card"
I've send an email to Pentax website, but no answer for time....
