Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

The camera says that my memory card is locked, i dont know how that happened or how to unlock it, it wont let me take pictures.HELP!!!!!! i am also unable to find my book that came with the camera. so i would appreciate any help you can give me. thank you thressa


Answers :

Remove the card from the camera, and look along the edges of the card for a plastic tab. This tab is slid in one direction or the other to choose "lock" or "unlock". As you have learned, when it is in the "lock" position, no new information (or pictures) can be saved to the card. This "information" includes erasing, formatting, etc. After sliding the switch on the card, you should be able to erase files, format the disk and of course, take pictures again.
Move the slide switch on the side of the memory card.

Software disk We got this camera for my kids last Christmas and now I can't find the mini cd that came with it. I can only assume the disk had the driver on it to transfer from camera to PC.

I took some picture on my Nikon D50 without the sdcard, and they are stored on the camera's internal memory, and I have looked through the menu and through the manual, but cannot find a way to transfer onto my computer. I have plugged in with USB cable, but this only shows the photos on the SD card, which shows up on my Mac either this way or by plugging card in directly to side of iMac 21".

I would like to find a video camera that will allow me to freeze frames and get a single image from the video. I take animal pictures and using a regular camera is frustrating.

Sounds like you just mostly have problems with the camera not taking the picture as soon as you push the button. There are some ways to get a single frame from a camera video file, but I think the best way to get what you really need is to have a ca ... Digital Cameras
