I have a Nikon CoolPix S8000. I have used it a while. When I last turned it on it said my Chip was unformatted and asked if I wanted to format it. I have a number of pictures on the chip and of course do not want to loose them by formatting. When I access the chip with a computer it tells me the chip is not formatted.

My camera has been on a easyshare dock a very long time. One time when the dock was unplugged, I plugged it back in, and put the camera on it. It had a blinking red light, which is had never shown before. I upplugged the dock and replugged and put the camera back on. It seemed fine, but Christmas day when I wanted to take pictures with my camera, the zoom lens would not work, and then I couldn't view the pictures anymore. My husband went and bought a new battery, we put it in, and put it on t

Kodak Easy Share camera - I'm using ScanDisk as a device to plug my memory card into and transfer pictures. I somehow got it to work once, but Kodak Easy Share usually tells me "no device detected". My control panel tells me the device is there and working fine. I tricked it once by reinstalling and Easy Share software actually allowed me to download my pictures (last night). Today it is saying no device detected again, and nothing seems to work.
