Make sure that the memory card slot is completely empty. Also, make sure that you are inserting the card in the right way. If that doesn't work, the micro card could have been jammed so far in there that it bent the connections. Most likely not possible unless he hammered that thing in there. Also, check on your menu on the camera. Make sure that the memory card type is not changed. If any of this doesn't help, unfortunately you will probably need to send it back to the manufacturer.

I have a 1 GB Olympus xD Picture Card that I am having problems with... Just a bit of background, but I've had this memory card for about 4 years with no problems...

Memory card I bought a Photosmart 435 which I never could get to recognize that the memory card was inserted. I even bought a 2nd card thinking that the first must be broken. That did not work. I bought a 425 and I am having the same problem. What is the secret to making the camera "see" that a memory card is inserted? The 425 tells me that the memory card is not formatted and will not let me format it. HELP....... I am so discouraged that I want to go back to FILM.

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. The memory card blocked the camera. I can bring up the photos in a diaporama on my computer but I cannot transfer them. And now the HP camera menu is written in Japanese(?) not the original French. How can I restore the camera to its original state and retrieve my photos.

I own a polaroid t730 digital camera. I can take pictures using the existing memory in the camera. As soon as I insert a memory card the camera shuts down except for the red light in the front that comes on and the green light in the back comes on. I am unable to operate any of the buttons while the card is in the memory slot. I have tried 3 different memory cards including a brand new one.

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. The computer doesn't register the card at all and I tried putting a different memory card in the reader and it worked so it definitely isn't the card reader that is the problem. I don't care if the card is broken but I have a bunch of picture

Hi, the flash card card-eject lever spring is broken and wont eject the card. u have to manually push the card in place and pull the card out. the lever stays up until u shut the card slot door.once the card is in place the camera can read the card if images already exist. but...it will not record an image and shows up as blank on the screen after the shutter takes the image? is this the cause of the broken eject lever. thanks.
I have the same problemI think that the reason that the not record the image is that the card slot door is pushing down on the card eject lever and ejecting the card when the door is closedThe only answer I can think of is to shorten the leverdavidh ...
