My Kodak C913 camera keeps telling me that the memory card is protected and to reset switch on memory card. This happens with a brand new 1 GB card, or on the 4 GB cards I have. (I have tried different cards and its always the same message that pops up) No matter how many times I reset the lock, I still get the message. I love the camera but have only had it a few months and its driving me crazy.

Memory cards My camera specs say that a 16MB memory card (like a Secure Digital or CompactFlash card) can store up to 110 images. So why doesn't mine store that many? And exactly how many images can be stored on a 16MB memory card anyway?


You may be able to store up to 110 images if you use the camera in its lowest resolution mode. In high resolution, you may get only 24 shots. We wish we could tell you precisely, but it depends on the exact size of the file created by a given camera, ... HP Photosmart 120 Digital Camera

I dropped my Canon Powershot SD750 digital camera and the extended lens was stuck open. I had no other options so I opened the camera up to fix it. I corrected it, but after I put the camera back together it takes poor pics. In normal light conditions it over exposes and pic looks really bright and also has many lines going through the picture? I love the camera and don't want to buy another one. I tried a different memory card and reset function under the menu.

I changed memory card and same thing happens,I have also tried moving switch on card, This problem started when I used card to transfer pictures to computer.


Try formatting through the computer rather than from within the camera itself. Or, just open the card on the computer, select all, then delete. There's probably a large file in there somewhere that the camera just doesn't have enough ooomphh to move ... Digital Cameras

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
