Answers :

I have 17 of these cameras and for some reason after a while some of them develop this problem. It is very frustrating but I can usually get them to work by taking disk out, turning on camera, put in auto mode, wait for delay to switch to ready then put card in. I works most of the time and if not turn it off and keep trying. Some kind of glitch in the computer I guess. Hope this helps.
