Re: The following alert appears, "Unable to use card....

The following conditions are presumed: - File system of the card was changed by formatting with PC. - The card was formatted with other memory card device. Basically we recommend the users to format by using the camera. (All the data in the memory card will be erased.) As the memory card may have defects in itself, please try other memory card, if you have other memory cards.

My samsung s630 says the memory is full. I cleared photos from the sd card and internal memory, but still can only take four pictures in the lowest quality and size setting.


Memory card might gone bad but can do this following troubleshooting step. Formatting a memory ** This is used for formatting the memory. If you run [Format] on the memory, all images, including the protected images, will be deleted. Be sure to download important images to your PC before formatting the memory. Sub menus
[No] : The memory will not be formatted. Press the menu button three times and the menu display will disappear.
[Yes] : A [Processing!] message appears and the memory will be formatted. If you run FORMAT in Play mode, a [No Image!] message will appear. 1d36119.png
Be sure to run [Format] on the following types of memory card.
- A new memory card, or an unformatted memory card
- A memory card that has a file this camera can't recognize or one that has been taken from another camera.
- Always format the memory card using this camera. If you insert a memory card that has been formatted using other cameras, memory card readers, or PCs, you will get a [Card Error!] message. ** There might be bad sectors on your memory card.

Error reading on screen on 1000e


Hello :

Here is what Canon said according some forums :

To isolate the cause of the issue, we suggest that you do the
following:

1. Turn off the camera.
2. Remove the lens, battery, and CF card.
3. Allow the camera to sit without power for approximately 20 minutes.
4. Insert a fully charged battery, and turn on the camera.

Does the "ERR 99" message appear? If it does, then the camera should
be serviced. If it does not, then please proceed to the next set of
steps:

1. Turn off the camera.
2. Insert the CF card.
3. Turn on the camera.
4. Format the CF card in the camera.

Does the "ERR 99" message appear? If so, then the CF card is the most likely source of the issue. Try using a different card.

If the message does not appear, please complete the following steps:

1. Turn off the camera.
2. Clean the lens contacts by gently rubbing them with a pencil eraser
or soft cloth. Be careful that you do not let any debris fall into the
camera body.
3. Reattach your lens.
4. Turn on the camera.

If the "ERR 99" message only appears when one particular lens is
attached, then that lens should be examined by a service technician.

If you see the "ERR 99" with a different Canon lens attached, then the
camera should be serviced.
I hope this will help .

Help with memory card saying unable to format


Hi Eric :)
Please try formatting the Memory card using your computer first in the following manner:
>> Insert the memory card into memory card slot / memory card reader
>> Check the drive letter that it has been assigned by the computer
>> Right click on the drive and select Format option
>> Now this is very important.. Select FAT file system from the drop down options (DO NOT select FAT32).
>> Now Format the card and then try formatting the same card in Camera.
Let me know if that works for you.

Regards,
Srinivas

Card error


As long as the xD card was not formatted it is possible to recover the images that were accidently erased or unable to be downloaded to computer. You can go to the following website link and download an image recovery software program that is free of charge.
http://www.z-a-recovery.com/
You want to download a program called Zero Assumption Recovery. It is a very simple program to use and people have had much success in recovering images.

Unable to format memory card


You mentioned in your post "the above camera", but I can't find the make/model of your camera? Check on the manufacturer's website to see what the largest capacity card can be used in your camera. Knowing the make/model and searching for the message on the internet can yield better answers to your question.

Camera won't format flash card


Ok. Don't mark me down for this answer because it seems you are at the end of the rope. This is what I got off the Konica support site. Question- How long does it take to reset date after the batteries are removed? A rechargable battery cell is built in the DiMAGE A200 for date/time backup. However, in case the camera is left for a long period of time, the camera is not able to keep the date/time setting if the dedicated battery has been removed before storage. If the date and time was reset, it is necessary to set them again. An internal battery is charged from the camera battery, and fully charged for approx. 30 hours. An internal battery protects the settings for approx. 240 hours (approx. 10 days) if it is fully charged. NewMediaMan- So, you'd have to leave the camera without the battery, for a long time to reset it. Konica Support site: Question- Unable to use card. Format?' alert appears. Answer: The following conditions are presumed: - File system of the card was changed by formatting with PC. - The card was formatted with other memory card device. Basically we recommend the users to format by using the camera. (All the data in the memory card will be erased.) As the memory card may have defects in itself, please try other memory card, if you have other memory cards. My solution(s) Step 1. You could try taking the camera into a Best Buy or someplace like that and ask if they have a spare card you could try in your camera. Perhaps they have a demo camera that they could swap out the card. It wouldn't hurt to try that first. Step 2. If possbile, leave the camera without the battery for about 2 weeks to see if it will reset the internal components. It's a free fix. Step 3. Purchase a new CF card and see what it does. And I need a good rating so please be kind. Thanks. Rob NewMediaMan
