In Topic: SDHC card problem

Thanks for the suggestion but I don't have a mobile telephone or a tablet so they are not alternative options I'm afraid

The specification (from the user manual) of the LX22 shows Data transfer protocol: MTP,PTP.  There is no mention of either Mass storage mode or a means of switching out of PTP.  It used to work but now it doesn't and I can't change the mode so that is not the cause of the problem.  I have tried a different USB port.


I'm afraid I have only the one USB cable so I can't test the theory that the USB cable may be faulty.


Virus protection (AVG) is, like all virus protection software, changing continually.


Would reinstalling the firmware(presently V1.0) remedy the situation?  Is it safe to do so?  Where is the driver located and how do I install onto the camera?

Oops and apologies.


I have looked at date and time change problem on and off for a number of weeks.  I am used to seeing a menu from top down.  It didn't occur to me that I may be seeing only the lower entries in the menu.  I had a brainwave today and tried scrolling up and, of course, the remainder of the menu was displayed.  This includes changing the date and time - so that's that issue resolved.  Another menu item was <reset>.  I thought this was a factory reset which, hopefully would resolve the SDHC issue.


Can the L22 be factory reset?  Would this need a download of the Firmware?  Is this wise?

Thanks.  I transferred files through Windows Explorer on a regular basis without resorting either to additional software or (until recently) a card reader and I would like to return to that.  I would, therefore, like to explore the possible cause of this issue - if at all possible.

Brian wrote "firmware should be able to use larger cards than the very first one used with it."  That suggests that a factory reset would return the camera to a state in which it doesn't know what memory card it had and that, having done a factory reset, I could install a larger capacity SDHC, copy all folders and files (which I have already proved can be done successfully with the 4Gb SDHC)  and that would resolve the issue.


I wrote in my first post "The camera and the computer have long since refused to talk to each other so, in order to transfer files, I have to first transfer the card to a card reader - a bit of pain."  This has now worsened.  I went to change the date and and time to find this option does not appear in the menu <Menu><Setup> which now includes ONLY <Copy> and <Firmware Version> but does NOT include <Factory Reset> - unless I'm looking in the wrong place?


All the useful suggestions about using a mobile telephone and tablets is, unfortunately not useful to me as I don't have such things (and at my age don't really want to go there).  Similarly I don't really want to replace the camera which I'm used to - unless absolutely essential.


Where do I go from here?
