Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Every disc is reading as incompatible,even though i have recorded on them.

Answers :

The first thing to do is clean the card's fingers with a qtip and isopropol alcohol, or pencil eraser. Check that the card's contacts inside the camera aren't bent or dirty, as best you can (it's not easy).

\015\012It's also possible that other things are wrong, but these are the things you can do shy of having it serviced.
\015\012If you do have it serviced, get an estimate first. Cost of repair can justify buying a new one.

JVC Hard Disk Camcorder (Everio) GZ-MG155U, after break in file management, came out of it showing no recorded material (I had 6 hours of material recorded on it at the time) and though the on-screen read-out claims the disk is empty (i.e. 7 hrs of ultra-fine record time available), trying to record results in error message "recording failure." Tried "CLEAN-UP" command without success; am reluctant to reformat drive until I can find out if my 6 hours of recorded material might be recoverable.

Your camera can record HD movies, that's a lot of data; the chances are that your camera is complaining that your card is too slow. To check this out, select a lower resolution movie, i.e. 480p instead of 720p and try that. If it works fine, then spe ... Digital Cameras

Hi, I have a Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS. It says the memory card is locked every time I insert it even though it isn't. I tried several cards to eliminate the possibility the card was bad. I received a repair estimate at $79, because the card reading board needs to be replaced. Am I being scammed or is it a fair estimate? Is it worth it or is it better to invest in a new camera? This one is not even 2 years old...

We have a Canon DC22 camcorder. The disc shows that there is only 4 minutes of recordable time left (DVD-R), but upon review it does not show our recorded video. We know that there was viewable video earlier because we reviewed the disc yesterday and was able to watch our daughter's recital. We recorded our son's pre-k graduation today but all video has disappeared including our daughter's recital. What is frustrating is that since the disc states that there is only 4 minutes left (60 minute

I'm unable to get the footage that I need off the disc right now.
