I hit Format in error and lost 200 -300 pictures I had just taken on holiday. I have tried the program Memory Card Recovery, but couldn't assign the camera to a lettered disk as required. The card couldn't be read on my computer either. The screen then indicated that the card was 'locked' whatever that means, and that there was 'a memory card error'. I hope you can help me.

Card error I've just gotten back from a trip. When I turned my camera on, a Card Setup screen appears and my two choices are Power Off or Format. When I pull out the memory card and put into the memory card reader in my computer, it says that the disk must be formatted before it can be used. Have I really lost all 200+ pics from my trip or is there anything I can do to save them? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Every memory card I put in my Moultrie camera the screen says "card locked" and the card's aren't locked. I have one card that it won't say that with and when I put it in and turn it on.. after the countdown it either shuts off or sleeps and won't take the pic.
When you say the cards aren't locked, I'm assuming that you've looked at the slide switch on the side of the card. ... Moultrie GameSpy 4.0 Digital Camera Deluxe
Upon turning on my camera the message 'lens error restart camera' appears against black screen. I've turned off the camera and have tried turning on again. Still same message. Prior to the above message, my camera displayed a message 'memory card error card locked' and I was not able to see view my photos. I took out the card to see if it was in a locked position to which it was not. Please help as I have vacation photos on this memory card!

Memory Card Locked The card works fine in my other Canon Camera, but not in my A620. I've switched out the cards and nothing works in my A620, but they all work in my other Canon. Memory Card Locked is all I get in the 620 and nothing works on camera. Lens comes out and the LCD screen lights up, but that is it. Any help would be appreciated. Jeff
