Having problems with your Nikon D90 Body Only Digital Camera ?

Does soft ware need to be added to my computer for the computer to recognise the memory card


Answers :

NO but it will have to sync with your camera first after that it will see your memory card as another hard drive.
If you are connecting the memory card directly to the computer using a card reader then you do not need any softwares, it would just be recognised as a removeable disk like a pen drive

Need to move images stored on the camera's memory to the SanDisk memory card instead. I accidentally took pictures and forgot the insert the SanDisk memory card. The images are saved but now I don't have anyway to download them onto my computer. I don't have a cable that connects the camera to my computer... just a SanDisk reader so I have to get the images to the memory card. Is there a way to do this on the camera itself?

I can't download my photos onto the computer from my samsung l310w camera. the memory card is sandisk SDHD card 8gb. the camera doesn't seem to be compatible with the card for some reason - when trying to flick through pictures it flashes and eventually says file error. the computer will pick up the photos initially then won't transfer them. my printer has a memory card slot and even that won't recognise the card anymore!

When I turn the camera on I get the message "memory card error". The only button on the camera which then works is the menu button but it just brings up the screen and then the same error message.

I have a Kodak easyshare m320 which I recieved today. I bought an SD card to go with it because the internal memory is really small. Near the card port, it says it accepts SD cards, and it also says this on the manual, but the card I bought for it is not being read by the camera. I can put the card in my computer and it works fine, though, so I don't know what the problem is. Do I need to do something to my camera in order to make it use the card rather than internal memory?


First, with no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Then, insert the card and do the "format" thing again to optimize the card for the camera. Now, it should work pro ... Kodak EasyShare CX7430 Digital Camera

My 4GB Gigaware SDHC memory card won't work on my camera. It used to work but then I tried it recently then the camera just takes out the lens and freezes. My other memory card works so it has to be the memory card. Can I do anything to fix it? If I can keep the photos in it I would prefer that but if it needs to be erased it is fine. I tried to access and format it on my computer but neither works. I can't access it at all.

I have a Kodak EasyShare z710 that will not format a memory card. I started with an older one i had and figured that it was the card. So i recently bought a brand new 2GB SD card for it.
