Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

When I insert the card the camera is not reading it

Answers :

May be you need to try the same card in an other camera.
\015\012Check if it functions properly.
\015\012If not read then check if the memory card is unlocked. Also connect the memory card to your system system and do a complete format and check if it works.
\015\012Check if any other card is being read by your camera.
\015\012Check if the card is being read.
\015\012If the camera does not read the new card as well then try cleaning the memory card slot for which I would recommend you to use a service manual of the camera you are using else I would request you to contact manufacturer for technical support.
