Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

But why But what does formating the memory card mean. The camera never told me it was going to delete all the pictures before doing so!


Answers :

I'm afraid "Formatting memory cards" or hard drives etc means returning them to factory conditions, therefore deleting everything.

System Error I downloaded the pictures onto a CD from my Konica Minolta today like I always do. When I was finished I went onto the camera to delete the pictures and format the card - like I always do. (I have had this camera for right at 1 year) When I turn the switch to the "view" mode it comes up with "system error" within about 2 seconds and the whole camera turns off. If I go really fast I can delete one picture at a time. I can still take pictures and they still show up (for 2 seconds).


Same thing happend to my father's camera (memory card). Seems that deleting the pictures from the card via the computer solves the problem. Corrupt files on the card cause the camera to read system error. No corrupt files = working camera! :) ... Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z5 Digital Camera

I have a pentax optio 8.1 megapixel camera. I have a 1gb scandisk. The memory is full. I want to delete some of the pictures. When I go to a picture, I push the trash can button. The response is the trash can followed by All images/sounds. I don't want to delete all the pictures, just the one I am looking at. If I click OK will all the images be deleted or just the one I am looking at? Bottom line, how do I delete one image at a time?

I took my memory card out of the camera, put it in my computer, and proceeded to download. It showed 200+ pictures, then there was nothing but 31. I can not find where these pictures went. I was never in a position to even delete these. They just disappeared. A friend of mine told me that her sister did the same thing, and the camera didn't show them, and somehow, through the support for that camera brand, was able to retrive them. Is there any way to try this on a Kodak camera?


First of all, check to see if all the pictures appear when the card is in the camera. If so, then your camera is making new folders as you shoot and not continuing the numbering sequence. Take the card to a store like Walmart that has a Kodak picture ... Kodak EasyShare Z740 Digital Camera

Hi,I am getting mad!!I have a Vivicam 3720 and I was trying to download my pictures to my MacBook...I couldn t visualize anything so I unplugged the device and plug again and when I opened the pictures to see what was going on because nothing was working..it was written NO FILE EXIST on my camera!!Where are them?I didn t delete anything or is that possible that they deleted themselves?
