Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Hello, My digital camera is Pentax Optio E30. After taking photos I tried to download them to my netbook using the SD card slot. I inserted the memory card into the slot but no files appeared but when I put the memory card back to the digital camera, the photos appeared. What should I do?


Answers :

Pretty cool that the newer computers are coming with an SD card slot. However the computer looks at this as an external hard drive and I don't think the pictures are just going to automatically pop up on the screen. You will need to go find the "drive" click on the folder and open, once you have the pictures open you can select all copy and then create a folder on your computer hard drive and paste the pictures in that. Once the pictures have transferred do a safe eject of the SD "drive" and remove the SD card. Don't forget to do a format to the card once back into the camera.

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

We own a Fuji Digital camerca model S700 and recently purchased a 1 gig memory card. We were taking photos on the weekend (photos which now can't be replaced) and we had a card error come up and the camera completely froze. My husband took the camera back to Shopeers Drug Mart where we had originally purchased the camera and memory card and they suggested we contact you directly. These photos which we took were of our Granddaughter and her Great Grandparents which are irreplaceable.

File error very so often after clicking a few photographs the camera shows FILE ERROR . On the first review the camera displays the photograph there after the photos are lost. the only solution to the problem is to format the memory card after which it clicks a few photographs & then the same problem occurs. is it the problem of memory card or a problem with the camera


It could be either. There is not any way to tell, but if the problem is too bad I would replace the memory card first and then address the issue within the camera if it continues.\015\012\015\012David Millier\015\012Advance Camera Repair ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H5 Digital Camera

I have an Olympus FE-340 digital camera. About a week ago I got a message that my memory card was full after I had deleted all of the photos in the memory.

It now says "Memory full" and there is nothing stored on the camera. Is there any way to fix this?
