Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I formatted my camera with memory card in it and now it wont save pictures I take to the card.


Answers :

Try removing the card, and replacing it back in. Attempt to see if the images are on the card that you deleted. If they are gone, format the card again, and repeat removing the card and replacing it. It should work after that. If it doesn't, it is a faulty generic card.
