Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I have taken some pictures but when I put the memory card in the printer it states card error. It works on my sons laptop and a digital photo frame.


Answers :

Is the card an SDHC card (4GB or larger)? If so, the printer's SD reader may have been designed before the SDHC format came out, and thus may not be able to read the card. Not a big problem in that portable USB SDHC card readers are being cranked out from China in the millions these days, and are extremely inexpensive ($3 or less shipping included, no fooling). These will work with your card. Just plug the card in, then plug the reader into an available USB port on your computer. Here' are some options from Amazon.

When my memory card ran out of space on my Olympus Digital E 500, I put in a new card. A "card error" message appeared on the screen. This has never happened before. Now neither card works and when I try to download the photos it asks me if I want to format the card. I assume that if I say "yes" and do format it, that it will erase all my photos. Is that correct?

I have a Fuji S 5200 Digital camera and the SD card kept coming up ''write Error'' every time I took a photo. I have replaced the card with a new one which worked for about the first 20 photos, 2 weeks. It now keeps coming up ''Card not initialised'' each time I turn on the camera.
