Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

One of my smart cards, full of recent photos, is showing "card error" and yet I cannot understand how it may have got damaged. The other card works OK, so the camara ( a Fuji FinePix F601Zoom) is not at fault. Is there any chance of restoring this card?


Answers :

I am sorry but once these cards fail that is it, the card storage system is a very complex integrated circuit, they are extremely reliable all things considered, but there are a few things that can destroy them, number one is static electricity, another is moisture and the third least common is a strong magnetic charge.
This message just show in the camera, or also show in the pc, when you connected like USB?

I suggest reviw this information for we accidentally deleted pictures from your cameras memory card, or pressed the Format button instead of delete button and wiped your card clean.

However, there are also a lot of good open source / freeware apps out there that can usually get the job done. And that’s where the nice people at CONVAR come in – offering a program called PC Inspector Smart Recovery ,which can recover lost pictures for free. What’s even better is thatit’s extremely easy to use and works well (based on my tests).
Please note that after you’ve lost the picture, DO NOT take any more pictureson the memory card, as writing new data to the card lowers your chancesof recovering the picture. Also note, that recovering the picture isnot 100% guaranteed, but there’s a good chance your picture will berecovered.

Step by step instruction, here it is:
1: Download PC INSPECTOR Smart Recovery.
2: Connect your memory card, either by a little memory card reader, or hook your camera up to the PC via the data cable.
3: Run PC INSPECTOR Smart Recovery.
4: Select the drive which is the memory card. It should be the one that has just connected.
5: Leave the format type as .JPG.
6: Choose a destination for the recovered files.
7: Press ‘Start’.

When you have the images save and secure, FORMAT your smart memory card.

Hope helped with this. Good luck.
