Having problems with your Casio Exilim EX-S880 Digital Camera ?

Card is locked and will not allow me to take photos, can view the photos already on the card on the camera only, not on computer, ect.


Answers :

Most SD cards have a switch on the edge of one side of the card.Sliding it up or down will unlock or lock the card. When the card islocked, you will not be able to transfer any audio tracks. Nor will yoube able to play any copy protected files. We recommend you always keepthe card unlocked.

When I view my photos I have already taken they look good until I try to zoom in, then the photos go fuzzy in multiple color stripes taking over the screen. Will my photos be fine when I load them to my computer? Is this my camera or my memory card. I put someone else's memory car in my camera and could zoom in and it was fine. I put mine back in my camera, took two pictures, and could zoom in on those photos and it was fine, but not on the previous pictures I have taken. I did plug my camera

Memory card I had photos stored on a SanDisk 512MB memory card in a Nikon Coolpix camera that is now broken. I put the card in my HP Photosmart r707 to try to trasnfer the photos to my computer.
