Having problems with your Olympus TOUGH3000 Digital Camera ?

How do I add pictures onto my computer with the Olympus u tough 3005? I have tried taking the memory card and putting it into this little slot in my printer for digital camera memory cards, and usually that works to upload pictured, but with this one the camera symbol keeps blinking red meaning there's a problem, and the manual doesn't seem to explain how you do it... please help!


Answers :

The cause of this is probably an incompatibility between your memory card and the card reader in your printer. Your camera is fairly new, and you probably have a memory card of 4Gb or more, which is going to be SDHC. Your printer is probably older, and is only compatible with SD (generally cards up to 2Gb).

Your solution is to use only SD cards, which essentially means limiting yourself to 2Gb, or buying a card reader which can support SDHC. I don't know what country you're in, but I bought a SDHC card reader in a dollar store for $2.00 which is half the price of a large latte.

My camera is a samsung s1065 and it will not read my memory card. There is no photos on the camera's memory or the SD card's memory because i uploaded them to my computer using a "all in one" USB stick from jessops however when i turn on my camera it says that the memory is full. I cannot take any pictures or videos using it now. Please help me!

Lost Pictures I took a few pictures one night. Two days later I viewed these photos and they were on the camera. The battery was exhausted. I got a little juice in the camera and realized that one photo disappeared. I took a shot and the last set of pictures that I had just viewed simply disappeared. I put my memory card into another camera and the pictures were not there either. Help!! I have a CoolPix 10.

Every time I try and upload pictures onto my computer using my Nikon s4000, the pictures are extremely distorted, but look completely fine on the camera itself. I use the chord that came with the camera to transfer them onto my computer. This is the second s4000 I've had, because the first one i purchased had the same exact problem. The only way that the pictures aren't distorted are when I upload them to my boyfriend's laptop by taking the memory card out of my camera and putting it in his lapt

When I put the memory card in the camera it says 'cannot read' it. How do I format the card? I know it has the right 'size' memory. The memory card I am using is the same one I used a few months ago and I saved the pictures I took to a computer and erased the pictures off the card. Now as soon as I turn the camera on it says 'This card cannot be read'. Im frustrated as there is nothing in the manual that seems to get my camera working again. I have only had it for a year. Please HELP!


Do not use the computer to erase the card. This is the reason your camera no longer recognizes the card. Now you need to format the card in the camera to get it to work properly. ... Digital Cameras

Help, I took about 80 pictures on my olympus sp-350 camera, an xd card was in it. Took my camera out the following night and half way through it seemed as if the camera switched to taking pics on the card/ internal memory (not sure which!) because I could only view the last ones taken and not those before. I have been onto photo rescue and that only recovered the ones that were on the card. I pray to God I haven't erased them they were taken on a special holiday in fRANCE! PLEASE help

Memory Card I just got my new Canon Power Shot G9. The user guide pictures a different memory card then what came with the camera. The guide shows a memory card that has ribbing and a write protection tab. The memory card that came with the camera does not. It is smooth all around except for one squared off corner. My problem is I cannot figure out, since the guide diagram and the actual card do not match, how the card is inserted into the camera? Please help! Thanks, Liz


They tricked you. The picture in the guide is of an SD card, but the card that came with the G9 is an MMC card. On both, there is a row of brass-colored contacts along one edge. This is what looks like ribbing in the guide. These contacts should go i ... Canon PowerShot G9 Digital Camera

I have an SL620 Samsung Digital camera, when I try to take pictures I can't due to it saying card locked. I have taken the memory card out, re-charged, cleaned and looked at the manual for this camera. I can not find anything on how to deactivate this. I do not have a switch next to my camera or memory chip to switch over. I read the suggestion on flipping the switch I do not have one. I have no switch on any part of my camera just all the buttons for mamory etc. please help I am very frustrated


Look at the memory card itself. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper ... Samsung SL620 Digital Camera
