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 have a Samsung VP MX10 Camcorder. When I make a video, it plays back ok on the camera's own screen. But when I take the SD card out of the camera and put it into my PC (Vista), it only plays back the sound, with no picture. Am I using the wrong type of SD card?

When I put my memory card in my camera it says Err Cf and won't let me take pictures and won't show any of my previous pictures on the card on the screen on the camera. When I put the cf card in my card reader and plug it into my computer, nothing happens. The computer doesn't register the card at all and I tried putting a different memory card in the reader and it worked so it definitely isn't the card reader that is the problem. I don't care if the card is broken but I have a bunch of picture

Format problem I have had my camera for about a year now and the other day I had put my memory card into my laptop (lost usb cord so I just take the memory card out of my camera and plug it into my laptop). Upon doing that it told me I needed to format my disk and I said no, so then I take out the memory card and I put it back into my camera and my camera tells me I have to format my disk, so reluctantly I did. Well now it will let me take about three pictures then it will freeze and wont do any

Is there a way to "restart" my Casio Exilim EX-Z700? While I was taking a picture it seemed to freeze while it was trying to display the picture I just took - then, with the lens still popped out the screen stayed blank and it turned off, and now it won't turn on. The lens is still stuck in the "out" position. No buttons work. I tried to put it in the cradle to charge, and tried a different battery as well. Nothing works. Camera is dead!
Normally changing the battery solves this.Make sure you replace it with a good quality new battery and make sure it goes in the right way around as when you get in a flap it often ends up in the wrong way! ... Casio Exilim Zoom EX-Z700 Digital Camera

Camera: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT1 Problem: Camera is not saving photos Hi, my camera started responding very slugglishly yesterday. I took a few pictures, and some of them wouldn't save. If I tried to switch my camera off, the screen would freeze on the "Saving photos". I checked the SD card on my laptop and those photos were coming up as blanks.

I have the Canon Rebel XTi. I am getting a message the CF card has a problem. I am able to put card in computer and it opens the files that are on the card.

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
Neither the fujifilm 256MB xd card nor th enew Olympus 2GB xd card will work in the A340. I've put the card in and went to Format it in the camera as per teh menu. It acts like it does but when you take a picture it says "write error" When you turn it on again it still says "card not initialized." I've tried formating them with the camera on (lens cover open) and using the menu and with the camera off (lens cover closed powered on using the button on the back) and using the menu from that screen

The cover on the battery and SD card opening on the camera broke off and couldn't be found on the ground. A small piece of cover and the hinge are still on the camera. When the camera is turned on a message 'card cover open' comes on screen and though I made a temporary cover with a thin piece of wooden pop stick and another with some stiff card and taped them on the camera still came up with same message. Can I get a new cover/door or what can I do??
I imagine the only way to obtain a proper part is to send it to an approved Olympus service centre, hopefully under warranty (though I expect they would not regard this as covered).The camera must have some way of telling that the door is ... Olympus FE-240 Digital Camera

I recently bought a SanDisk 4GB SDHC card for my DXG-572V. I put it in the camera, and I turned the power on. A screen comes up saying "Format Card?". I have tried selecting both "Yes" and "No", but each time I select either one, the camera powers off automatically. I just installed brand new batteries, also. How can I get past this screen?
Your problem is that you are trying to use an incompatible memory card. The DXG-572V is not SDHC compliant and will only work with regular SD cards. In theory it's compatible up to 4GB but in practice there are few standard SD devices whi ... DXG Technology DXG-572V Digital Camera
