When I put my memory card in my camera it says Err Cf and won't let me take pictures and won't show any of my previous pictures on the card on the screen on the camera. When I put the cf card in my card reader and plug it into my computer, nothing happens.

I don't care if the card is broken but I have a bunch of picture

I normally use a small 32mb memory card in the olympus D-390 but used an olympus fe-130 over the holidays with a 256mb memory card. I do not have the usb cord for the fe-130 so I put the 256mb card in the d-390 camera and plugged it into my computer to load up my photos but I get a blue screen on the camera with options of Power off or format. Is the card too big for the camera? it works fine in the other to let me take photos and view them, if I had the cord for it or went to a store to print

My camera won't regognise my memory card: although the memory card is in the camera, on-screen it says "int" which i know means photos will be taken on the internal memory, as if there's not a memory card inside. When i put the card into my computer, the photos i have taken show up normally. This happened once before and i was told to replace the memory cardwhich i did.

When I try to use a new card, 4mp or 8 mp, the camera display states "memory card error". My brother tried the cards in his camera and the cards DO work. Also, after downloading pictures to save on my PC, I put the card back into the camera but when I want to view the photo's some of them state "not compatible" so in essence I've lost the picture.

I have a Sony DSC-H1 camera and have recently removed photos from it's memory card - the same way that I've always done it before without any troubles. Now, when I put in the memory stick and turn on the camera, the screen shows "no file in this folder" and won't go any further. I've tried to go through the menu and reformat the memory stick but it didn't make any difference. What do I need to do to continue to use this memory stick?

Screen Hi, My Nikon Coolpix s4 camera does not generate any image on the screen. I last used it 2 months ago. Then i kept it a a safe place and took it out again to find that the screen went completely blank when i start it.
