Memory Card Error after Airport Security

Toshiba M25 w/Smart Media Put camera in suitcase. Flew to Vegas and back. Never took camera out of suitcase. Upon returning home camera doesn't work. Have travelled nationally & internationally with this camera in suitcase before and never had a problem. In 'view picture' & 'automatic' modes it says Unformatted Card Format Card? yes/no - I say yes Card Error In the 'manual' mode it starts with 'card full'. The card and camera were working properly before they were put in the suitcase. I have tried other known good cards and get the same error. Any ideas? Thanks.

Re: Memory Card Error after Airport Security

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.

! 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!
