I have a Sony DSC-H7. After removing the memory card to process some photos at a local walgreens, I went to re insert it, and after I did the camera doesn't seem to read the memory card(SanDisk ProDuo 2.0 Gb). I went to the Internal Memory tool on the camera and it only shows an option to format the cameras built in memory space. I have heard these cards can just go out but I want to make sure there is no option of reformat. Thank you!

Hey. I bought a new camera some days ago with a new Digix 4gb SDHC memory card. I went to Disney World and took normally a lot of pictures. From one moment to another, the camera gives me the message "Memory card error" and won't let me take nor view pictures. I tried removing the memory card and everything. I checked and It isn't locked or something. Also, I tried using a memory card reader on my laptop, and it says I have to format to read the card. I REALLY don't want to lose the pictures.


Take the card to a Walmart and insert it into one of their picture kiosk machines. You can print the pictures or even make a CD of them. ... Canon PowerShot SD1300 IS IXUS 105 Digital Camera

Clearing Memory Hello, I have a DSC-T10 with a 1GB card in it.  I have deleted all photos from this camera but the amount of photos I can now take is not the amount it should be.  It's almost as if the photos are still on the camera.  This is called 'ghosting' I think??  How do I clear the camera and card memory properly??

How to format an SD card on a Canon SD600 camera when the menu says "memory card locked." The memory card is in the unlocked position. When we put the SD card in another Canon camera (SD780 IS), it works fine, and will store a photo. It appears that something in the SD 600 camera itself is preventing the card from functioning. Can you offer a solution to this problem?

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

I have a Sanyo Xactiphoto and video camera. I fear I have lost 8 Gig of pictures, however, it may be there but I am not accessing it correctly. I know I used up all the memory and I get a message on activating the camera telling me something like 'star two the internal memory". Is it possible that the card is full and the camera has reverted to the internal memory? If so, how do I retrieve the data on the card? Thanks. Nick


You can check the contents of the card by inserting it into a computer's card reader (cheap to purchase if needed). This will confirm if there is any data on the card. ... Sanyo Digital Cameras

My Fujifilm FinePix F20 camera keeps giving the Memory Full warning with less than 50 pictures on it. This is with the XD card. It used to hold nearly 300 pictures. The card and camera memory have been cleared of all pictures and videos. So you'd think it would be able to hold more. Is it the card? The camera? At a loss.


I am guessing as to what your problem is but it is possible there are some files on your memory card that you cannot see. First save all your pictures then format the card and see if this fixes it. If not try a different card. There is always the ... Fuji FinePix F20 Digital Camera

Cannon SD1100 IS Digital Camera The Camera reads " Card Locked". The Maual's solution is to slide the switch up on the memory card. Did that still won't work.
