Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

My photos won't download to my computer. It says the disk needs formatting. I have been successfully downloading photos for years.


Answers :

If it says that ..it means that probably you do not have enough space on C drive of the computer ..just open the camera in the my computer folder(if you have a card into the camera it will be seen as a removable storage device ) ..and copy /paste them into another location ..
If the message is on the camera ..than you did not formated the card proper and the stuff is not valid on it ..

I have a Nikon D70 and i am a photographer I shot a customers photos today. I shot the first half of the photos on this compact flash card and downloaded to my computer and then put it back in the camera and formatted the card.

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.
