Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A400 Digital Camera ?

I took a picture with my camera the other day, it had been working fine for 5 months, and then all of a sudden beeped and says memory card error, and I can't review any pictures. Connecting it to my computer doesn't do anything, it says it can't read the card. I tried the card in another camera and it says the same thing. Help? Any way to recover all of my pictures?

Answers :

Have you tried this memory card on your computer?
\012 If this memory card can be read functionally on your computer, you'd better copy off all your stored photos to another memory card or drive and format this card immediately to check whether it can still be read on your camera.
\012 But, if this card unfortunately also gets the same error on your computer, you'd better try to apply a memory card photo recovery freeware to get all your stored photos back successfully for free:

\012 In fact, this freeware helped a lot as the external hard drive of my friend was mistakenly formatted. It finally restored all the needed data of my friend. It always works well on both of a memory card and a hard drive. So, I believe it will also help you a lot.
\012 Try to read more information of this freeware here:

\012 After experiencing these troubles, I hope you can learn a valuable lesson to back up everything important well at least on two memory cards or hard drives all the time.
Use a card reader to connect your card with the computer, as long as it can be detected by your computer, you can try some photo recovery software to rescue the files on your camera card, here are some you may rely on. Both programs can also recover videos and music.\015\012
Photo Recovery Software (for Windows)
Mac Photo Recovery Software (for Mac OS X)

Be careful: Before your pictures are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the card in case the original files(your pictures) are overwritten.

USB connection The computer cannot access the Memory Stick® media in the camera when connected with the USB cable. I connect the camera to my computer using the USB, then after 10 seconds its says there is no device connected to the computer, and then it gives me option to cancel, retry, or continue but it usually connects automatically itself again. The only problem is that I can't do anything with pictures can't copy, delete, or view them. I'ce already tried to delete and reinstall the driver.

I would invest in a memory card reader. You can pick one up for under $20. Using a card reader allows you to avoid having to deal with drivers and such that may or may not be loaded on your PC. A card reader should work just fine for ya. Good luck ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera
