Having problems with your Pentax Optio S50 Digital Camera ?

I deleted a folder on the memory card Optio S50

\015 Help me please tekkies!I have a 1 gig SD memory card that I put into a card reader on my Mac and then after I transfered the files from the card onto my computer, I deleted them by dragging this folder with them into the trash. Originally, the card only had one folder that automatically popped up. After using it for a while there were more folders that would appear. I usually just threw the whole folder away no problem. This time, way after I transfered them and removed the memory card reader, I noticed there was something stuck in the trash can. I tried to move it back to the desktop after it would not just delete permanently, and it would not go. I then attempted a few more times, then finally it asked me to put in my Admin password and so I did, and it successfully disappeared. Now, it reads "Memory Card Error". I figured oh well, I'll just buy a new Memory Card and thought since I deleted that folder the card was kaput. So I got a 2 gig SD and put that in the camera, to only find the same error message. I feel like I have to junk this thing now although it works and still takes pictures. Is there any way I can fix this? Like re-typing a certain set of numbers for the folder that was discarded? They had a series of numbers and some letters, so I don't know... This one seems tricky to me. Thanks!\015

Answers :

The only thing I can think of is that the new memory card is locked. On the side of the SD card is a write protect switch that when engaged will prevent you from writing to the card. On the side of the SD card is a little tab that can slide up or down. Change positions and try again.
Go into the cameras menu and format the card. What you deleted was not a photo file but a location where the camera puts photos as opposed to just writing other non photo information on the card.

Hi, I've a Panasonic LUMIX FZ38 (fw version 1.0). When I want to clear the SDHC content via pc (camera in Mass Memory Mode), or to transfer the pictures via cut, it says ''Unable to delete...the storage card is write protected''. but my card isn't protected! And it's impossible to set the photo folder out of ''Read Only Mode''. Instead, if I put the same SDHC in a memory card reader, I can do everything I want. Do you think it's normal?


Yes, it's normal. You should never try to delete, format, transfer to camera, or anything else with the computer. It's always from camera to computer...never the other way around. And when you're finished downloading, always use the "safely remove ha ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ5 Digital Camera
