Having problems with your Samsung Digimax D53 Digital Camera ?

Card Locked - One problem is : I have tried 3 new cards and unlocked the cards and still recieve a card locked message when I try to take a picture. I have tried to format to " yes" but the camera continues to return to " no ". The other problem I have is that I accidentially deleted all of my pictures in the camera's memory. Is there any way to retrieve those pics?? Please help!!! Thank You. Chip. [email protected]


Answers :

Is this a new problem or has it always been this way? What type of SD cards are you trying to use, SD or SDHC?
As far as recovering the images from the camera's internal memory, unless you have the option to undelete from the camera's menu you have most likely lost them. The only option I'm aware of is if the camera shows up as an external storage device in Windows Explorer when attached to the computer. If it does you may be able to use file recovery software. Recuva is a freeware download you can try.

The screen on my camera says 'Memory Card Locked'. The solution is to take out the memory card and flick the switch on the side. But I can't take the memory card out- it appears to be stuck. At the same time as the screen starting to say 'Memory Card Locked' the memory card only comes out half way so I can't flick the switch. How do I solve this problem??
