Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I recently recieved a Canon Rebel Xti as a gift alot with a Sandisk extreme III 2.0 GB memory card. I see the CF opening on the camera but i have no idea how to get the memory card into the computer, it seems so small to fit into the cf opening. It's probably a simple answer but it's puzzling me. Any help would be greatly appreciated

I accidentally dropped my camera with the lens open and it bent so now the camera cannot close, it just shuts off. My memory card is the issue though. I have put it in 2 other cameras, but I still get the Memory Card Locked error. I cannot seem to unlock it (I have flipped the switch on the side over and over and plugging the camera into the computer with the faulty card produces no response). I can't get to my pictures. What do i do?

What memory card fits an Olympus D-540? It seems to take a small sized card but I can't seem to find one

It uses xD-Picture cards. You should be able to find them at any big-box electronic or department store. Or, if prefer buying online, you can order them from any of the usual outlets, such as Amazon and Overstock. ... Olympus Camedia D-540 Zoom Digital Camera

Transferred the pictures from the memory card onto the computer and put card back in. Tried to turn it on, but now the lens is stuck, it didn't open fully, and I need help. It seems to have frozen while turning on - the screen is black etc. I took out the battery, and meory card, replaced them both, nothing happeneing. Power button does nothing. Is there a reset button? It's the 7.2 megapixel camera...

This would need to be repaired if the lens is stuck so is the shutter. I would take it in and have it looked at. there is no other resetting then what you already have done ot the unit.\015\012\015\012\015\012thanks for rating. ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S650 Digital Camera

I have never had a problem retrieving pictures from my Olympus Stylus 730, I can open the memory card and drag the pictures to a folder on my computer without a problem. However, I cannot do this with video files. I can't even play them straight from the memory card folder on my computer (Dell PC). I tried opening them with Windows Media Player instead of Quicktime, the format they were in, and it allowed me to hear the audio but with no video. How can I convert these files so that they are read

I can't download my photos onto the computer from my samsung l310w camera. the memory card is sandisk SDHD card 8gb. the camera doesn't seem to be compatible with the card for some reason - when trying to flick through pictures it flashes and eventually says file error. the computer will pick up the photos initially then won't transfer them. my printer has a memory card slot and even that won't recognise the card anymore!

The problem could be that the computer will not read the large card, I know my two year old Acer will not read the 8 gig cards directly from a card reader. The solution may be to revert back to smaller cards. ... Sakar 23070 Digital Camera

Although my memory card is 75% full, my screen reads "there are no files"...I am able to display the files on a computer however. When new pix are taken they are stored and can be displayed. I've tried sending new files over to this card via computer and/or other memory cards to to no avail. What seems to be the problem and can it be solved. Thanks

When I put the memory card in the camera it says 'cannot read' it. How do I format the card? I know it has the right 'size' memory. The memory card I am using is the same one I used a few months ago and I saved the pictures I took to a computer and erased the pictures off the card. Now as soon as I turn the camera on it says 'This card cannot be read'. Im frustrated as there is nothing in the manual that seems to get my camera working again. I have only had it for a year. Please HELP!

Do not use the computer to erase the card. This is the reason your camera no longer recognizes the card. Now you need to format the card in the camera to get it to work properly. ... Digital Cameras

Memory card I recently bought the Pentax Optio T10 digital camera and I'm trying to get/use the correct memory card. Can't seem to find online which card(s) work with this camera. I have a Patriot 4GB SD card and it doesn't work, I get a "Card Error" message on my screen. Does this card fit this camera? If not what cards will? Thanks! Charles

I have a Sony DSC-S950 Cyber-shot. I opened some pictures in the computer using PhotoShop to view and rotate pictures. After I rotate pictures and I resaved them back to the memory stick card, I can't view them on the camera. I only see a blue screen with File error on it. However, I still can see and reopen these pictures through the computer. Can I still print these pictures from the memory card? How can I restore back these picture files? I want to view them on my camera. Please help.

Do I use the orange or the black adapter card to insert a memory card into my olympus stylus 840 camera? I bought the camera last night. The lady also said I'd need a PNY 2GB microsd memory card. Well I've tried inserting the tiny black card into the larger black card AND the orange card and neither one seem to fit in the camera. Am I inserting wrong or is it just not compatible??

Try inserting it without either adapter card. ... Olympus Stylus 840 Digital Camera

I have a Kodak easyshare m320 which I recieved today. I bought an SD card to go with it because the internal memory is really small. Near the card port, it says it accepts SD cards, and it also says this on the manual, but the card I bought for it is not being read by the camera. I can put the card in my computer and it works fine, though, so I don't know what the problem is. Do I need to do something to my camera in order to make it use the card rather than internal memory?

First, with no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Then, insert the card and do the "format" thing again to optimize the card for the camera. Now, it should work pro ... Kodak EasyShare CX7430 Digital Camera

Hi guys! I'm having trouble with my KODAK SDHC Memory Card 4GB. I've recorded some stuff in my camera, and I can see my recordings IN the camera, but whenever I try to transfer my videoclips to my PC, it won't detect the memory card. I've alreday tried connecting the camera directly to the computer, but still won't detect it. Whenever I use another memory card it seems to work perfectly fine. HELP!

SDHC Memory Card 4GB cannot be read from the SD slots on a computer because they are a different format although they look the same. You can purchase an adapter at Staples that can plug into a USB port to be able to read the SDHC card. ... Kodak EasyShare M1033 Digital Camera

I swapped memory cards with my daughter as mine had a bigger memory. However it didn't seem to work properly in her camera. Her camera now freezes on the opening screen when its switched on and does nothing else, the lens also refuses to go back in. I put the card back in my camera and now mine just switches off when you turn it on after making 3 blip noises! Now both cameras don't work with or without the memory card. I've checked the manual for mine which has no explainations. Also checked bat

I normally use a small 32mb memory card in the olympus D-390 but used an olympus fe-130 over the holidays with a 256mb memory card. I do not have the usb cord for the fe-130 so I put the 256mb card in the d-390 camera and plugged it into my computer to load up my photos but I get a blue screen on the camera with options of Power off or format. Is the card too big for the camera? it works fine in the other to let me take photos and view them, if I had the cord for it or went to a store to print

Many cameras will not read cards written on other, different cameras. There should be no problem taking the card to a store and having the pics printed or put on a disc. Or get a cord for the 390, or a card reader for your computer. ... Olympus Camedia D-390 Digital Camera

I wanted a new memory card for my camera - this model- and was sold a Sandisk SDHC flash memory card. Before opening the package I'd like reassurance that this is appropriate for my camera as the assistant did not ask me the make and model of camera and I see that the small print says :"not all devices support SHDC cards". If it isn't I shall return it unopened for a refund and would you tell me what would be appropriate.
