In suitcase? Checked baggage? Bad idea. Here's why. I damaged an LCD display that way. Not cracked or broken, but the baggage area is not a heated or insulated space. The temperature can reach well below -40 F (or C). Most electronics is not rated for such and my LCD on the device I put in my checked luggage shows the effect. Lesson learned firsthand....

PowerShot SX10 IS Digital Camera: I took my card out, when I put it back in it says ...

There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". Some include trying to use of a 4GB SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Others include problems with the tiny slide switch on the side of the card, or the electrical contact switch internal to the camera. The problem may also arise from simple formatting problems if the card has never been formatted in the camera (note that this will also erase the card). Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link.

My m25 doesn't load with a memory card (2Gb)

I think that the M25 only supports 1GB memory cards. (I've never tried a larger one in mine) Motorola's website only says up to 1GB.

Place for a memory card from digital camera to

It does not appear that this laptop has a media slot for you to put your memory card into. So you can use the USB cable that came with the camera - but I find that it is always very slow, and uses up the camera's battery pretty quick.

So you may be better off getting a USB media reader. you'd remove the memory card from the camera, put it into the slot in the reader, and plug the reader into a USB port. In My Computer you'd see a new drive pop up, and you could click on the DCIM folder, and then the 100XXXXX (where XXXXX is the name brand of the camera, or some portion of it) folder, and you can then cut and paste your pictures to the computer. If you Cut instead of Copy, it deletes the pictures from the media, so that when you put it back in the camera, it is blank and ready to take more pics.

! Card Error Message

I've had similar problem when I was messing around with the Sony memory stick. The cheap pins inside that suppose to touch the memory got screwed up. I just bought the camera so took it back to the store and got a different one. Anyway, try shining a flashlight into the memory slot and see how the pins are. If they are not line up then use a really small something to re-line them like they suppose to. See if it's possible to reformat the memory. That sometime help too. It happened to my sis cell phone. We had to reformat the memory stick to get it working right. I do not think this have anything to do with battery. If you don't put memory in and camera say "No memory" and with memory in and it read "Mem error" then likely the reader or the pins are screwed up. Goodluck.

Card Error

If the memory card is not recognized in the PC or it is impossible to access the data on it, the controller on the card is damaged. There is only one way to get the data back, unsolder memory chips and directly access their raw data with a programable chip reader. Software can't help, that is a physical damage! Have a look at:
