Having problems with your Canon PowerShot G3 Digital Camera ?

Compact flash disk

\015 Canon powershot G3 is sending message "card full" when my 512mb SanDisk is absolutely empty. If I try to view a picture on the so-called 'card full' camera it says "no images". I've been using it for 3 years with no problems. I switched to another card and it worked fine. So should I just throw out the one that keeps being identified as 'card full'? Do they wear out?\015

Answers :

Yes they can and do go bad on occasion. But before throwing it out, attempt to format it in your camera. Find the menu selection that allows you to do a "full" or "low level" format, NOT a "quick" format. If the card still misbehaves, then it's time to retire that card.

I have a digital Sony Mavica FD-95, when I insert a floppy disk into the drive, it reads as "disk protected" when the disk is not protected. Also, when I insert the adapter for the memory stick [64 meg] it reads "disk error" [flashing: C:13:01]. [Disk Protect] In both instances, I double confirmed that the media was NOT write/copy protected & I have replaced the batteries in the MSAC-FD2M memory stick/floppy adapter. Can this be fixed?
