Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

My HP laptop windows XP won't read my Nikon D80 SD card. It recognizes the card but tells me it is unformatted. My computer is specked to read the card and the computer reads an olympus XD card just fine. Thanks, Mike G.

Answers :

The problem with formatting is it could get machine specific. The only way you can use the card with your laptop is to format it with your system, use it with your camera and try reading it with the laptop.

However the card itself is fine because i was able to upload them on my computer and put my card into a photo printer and have no problem. The camera is able to take pictures but only with the internal memory now. I am trying to figure out what happened?

I normally use a small 32mb memory card in the olympus D-390 but used an olympus fe-130 over the holidays with a 256mb memory card. I do not have the usb cord for the fe-130 so I put the 256mb card in the d-390 camera and plugged it into my computer to load up my photos but I get a blue screen on the camera with options of Power off or format. Is the card too big for the camera? it works fine in the other to let me take photos and view them, if I had the cord for it or went to a store to print

Many cameras will not read cards written on other, different cameras. There should be no problem taking the card to a store and having the pics printed or put on a disc. Or get a cord for the 390, or a card reader for your computer. ... Olympus Camedia D-390 Digital Camera

I have a 1 GB Olympus xD Picture Card that I am having problems with... Just a bit of background, but I've had this memory card for about 4 years with no problems...

Hi: I have a SDHC 16GB card using by the Lumix FZ35 camera. It worked fine on the first 4 days of my trip and all of a sudden, it is now displayed with ''INSERT SD CARD AGAIN'' message whether I try to shoot or view pictures from the camera.

I have a Kodak easyshare m320 which I recieved today. I bought an SD card to go with it because the internal memory is really small. Near the card port, it says it accepts SD cards, and it also says this on the manual, but the card I bought for it is not being read by the camera. I can put the card in my computer and it works fine, though, so I don't know what the problem is. Do I need to do something to my camera in order to make it use the card rather than internal memory?

First, with no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Then, insert the card and do the "format" thing again to optimize the card for the camera. Now, it should work pro ... Kodak EasyShare CX7430 Digital Camera

After that I wanted to take more pictures and now it says, "Write Protected" I looked at the instructions on how to remove it, it says, "Use a computer to cancel the read-only setting." I don't know where that is.

This is almost always a setting with the "write protect" or "lock / unlock" tab on the SD or SDHC memory card itself - and is easily remedied. Remove the memory card from the camera if it isn't already, and look along the left edge of the card. Find ... Digital Cameras
