Memory Card Error

I have a Pentax K100D and I reset it to factory settings. Now when I put a card in it and turn it on it reads "memory card error". No matter old or new card. Please help this camera was working fine until I did that. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you. Smile

If you're using and sdhc card then this may be the reason?

Resetting to factory settings may have rolled back support for your current cards. It could be that it doesn't like the format of them, worth formating one to basic defaults on a PC and trying that in case it helps.
Thank you that fixed the problem it will only utilize the SD cards no the SDHC cards. Now the shutter release does not work. I am batting zero.

This is possibly related to firmware. Now that you've got it to recognise some kind of memory card you can think about upgrading the firmware. Shutter button can be a bit hit and miss, try the paper suggestion here

Firmware update here which will allow your SDHC cards to work again.
