Problem with my new GE X5 Camera

February 25th, 2011
For the 2nd time I will be bringing my new GE X5 Camera to Photoline shop , the store where I bought it. After consuming half of the memory of the 4 gig memory ( that’s around 300 shots), it can no longer recognize files. The first time I encountered it last February 14 when hubby and I went for a Valentine trip. Upon transferring it on our laptop, we realized not all shots were there. We tried t take pictures after, but it can no longer recognize the photos taken. I sent it for check-up and the store saleslady change the memory card with 4 gig san disk.

Last Sunday at our mom’s birthday, the problem again came back. Photos during dinners were not recognized again. We reset the factory reset.. tried manual mode and took pictures with a smaller size but everything remain futile.

Now during my daughter’s school foundation day, I could no longer take photos successful. I am getting pissed off since we bought this unit at a considerable amount . Any suggestion from your end? Thank you.

    No, the camera works very well. The problem is usual with digital cameras in general: Memory cards 1gb or 2gb works perfect. The problem is with 4gb o more: Not all brands are compatible. Compatibility problems begin with flash memory of 4.8, or 16bg.

    Do you have some lens adapter tube for my camera: GENERAL ELECTRIC X5? I want to guard the lens and put a lens filter. Do you have a solution?

    I have a GE X5 and I use a Kingston 8G class 4 card with no problems. See if you can get a card that is rated at Class 4 or higher.
