Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Removed memory card from camera

\015 Hi Ginko! I really goofed this time. I have a Nikon Coolpix 4 and removed the memory card with the power on. Will a new memory card fix the problem? I am getting a message of corrupted picture files for the recent photos when I try to unload images to my PC. Please advise and thank you so much! \015\012\015\012Sincerely,\015\012ourexcellentadventure\015

Answers :

Yep, the corrupted files are stored on the memory card.

A new card should sort it out, only you will probably lose your files.

Often you do not even need a new card, you just format the old one.

I've just bought a new DSLR Olympus camera and fully charged the battery. The camera switches on when there is no memory card inserted but as soon as I insert a memory card the camera won't switch on. If I remove the card and try to switch the camera on it still won't turn on, I have to remove the battery, put it back in then switch on the camera. Any ideas what's wrong?

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.

Nikon COOLPIX S710 stops working after battery and/or memory card are removed. I have reformed the memory card (no change). Purchased 2X new batteries (no change). One of the original batteries will allow the camera to work, directly after a fresh charge, but not after it is removed, unless directly after insertion from being freshly charged.
