the guide helped me before, easy to follow and works well for me. Hope that you can find it helpful.
After you get back your photos, you can format the memory card in camera so that you can continue using it.
The card has become corrupted. First make sure that you have downloaded and backed up all the pictures that you wish to keep from the card. If your computer does not recognize them from the card, you may need to use recovery software. Here's some freeware that's very good:

You will need to use a flash card reader with this software. If you don't have one, get one, they're cheap:

\015\012The reason this occurred is that you likely never formatted the card. The card will work fine in the beginning but eventually will corrupt. AFTER you've recovered and backed up your photos, format the card in your camera to prevent this from happening again (dig out that instruction manual to figure out how). Keep in mind formatting will also totally erase your card, so again only do this after you've recovered the photos.

Hi there I have a Moultrie MFH I 40 camera and the Info Strip has degraded from a loss of 25% of the image (which was still readable) to less than 50% of the image, which means it is now nearly impossible to read the set up instructions and settings. The batteries are good. Can I reformat this camera? I use a Macbook Pro. I have been using this on a trail through a period of cold weather in the Highlands of Scotland.

I can't find my photos. I was taking pictures and all of a sudden all the photo I took looked smaller on the screen and said unidentified image.

Also, when I took the chip out and put it in a developing station, the photos that said unidentified object didn't even show a picture on the screen. On the the camera screen some do

Message Display I have a 256MB memory card for my camera. I have not taken many photos. Even at the lowest picture quality setting of 640, the camera reads that I only have 146 images to take.

However, I was not able to find anything that tells what to do to increase the number of available photos from 146 to more. This problem happened once

The pictures look as if the images were painted and the wet paint is dripping down the canvas into grayscale, unidentifiable blobs. Replacing of batteries and replacing flashcard had no affect.
