For the image file numbering problem: Go into the setup menu and set the numbering option to "renew" instead of continuous. For the card error: use the setup menu and format the card in the camera. This will erase everything on the card, so you will lose your video files, unfortunatly.

What does back-up to sd card mean?


the camera has internal memory and also will have the option for external memory. If you have a sd memory card in the camera you can backup the internal memory to the sd card.
Then you can remove the sd card and put in a new sd card and you now have an sd card with your precious photo memory's copied from the camera internal memory. You may have a camera that allows two sd cards one for the photos and one to back up the photos. If you had your camera stolen or lost you would lose all the photos on the camera but with a backup sd card you still have the photo files. Also a p.c with a card reader device could read the files on the sd card and you could copy them into a cloud storage on the net or onto a network storage device or onto a usb portable drive with 2 terrabyte capacity .

My camera says the memory card is locked and memory card error appears when I turn on the camera. I've read that I have to format the card, but won't the photos be destroyed? How can I get my pictures


There is a tab on the memory card so you will you need to remove it from the camera and change the position of this tab to "unlock" it. DO NOT format the card until you've BACKED UP your files from it (typically to a PC or USB drive (stick or external hard drive).

I have a canon powershot sd 1200 is. I tried to transfer the photos from the camera into a laptop using the memory card; t didn't work. Put the card back into the camera. Now camera says...


This sounds like your card has some type of error that is causing the images not to be seen. My suggestion is that you go to your local chain pharmacy (such as Walgreens, CVS, Duane Reade) and put your memory card into their photo kiosk machine to read the pictures. Hopefully their machine will be able to read the memory card and then you can have them copy your pictures to a CD/DVD. After this is done then you would be able to reformat the card and clear the error. If the card still does not read or work then it seems you will need to look into a service that does data recovery.

Good Luck,
Paul

I am getting a "Memory


Its a very common problem with S400,S410 and some others.

As a case study, see the following error message on the Canon IXUS 130 when trying to view some photos previously stored in the memory card SDHC

"Memory Card Error"

Every single photo stored on the memory card becomes inaccessible after the above error message. In addition, no more photos can be stored on the memory card. In short, the card can not be read or written.

Cause:
The above error message that makes all the pictures inaccessible is mainly caused due to corruption of the memory card. Reasons why you are responsible for the above error message is virus infection, interrupted read / write operation, and human error.

Resolution:
The resolution for the above error message is the format of memory card into the camera. The process erases all data previously stored and allows you to save the new data. While the format is a good resolution for users who do not require the old data, it is fatal to users such as photographers, detective agencies, etc, to save critical data on your memory card. However, the formatted data recovery day is now an easy process. It is therefore necessary to use an advanced part of third parties. A tool for image recovery is readily available on the Internet by one click.

Data Recovery is an application of high-end recovery that recovers data from almost all formats SDHC Card, XD and MMC. The read-only photo recovery tool also allows you to restore data in the defined location. The software runs on Mac OS X and Windows.

Hope helps.

Can't help with the camera- sounds like it has a fault.

The photos, however, should be recoverable by putting the memory card into a card reader on a computer.

Memory card is locked, how do I unlock this?


Problems typically are pretty rare with Panasonic Lumix digital cameras. On those occasions where you do have an issue, though, look for an error message on the Panasonic camera for some clues as to how to fix the problem.
he seven tips listed here should help you troubleshoot your Panasonic camera error messages.
  1. Built-in Memory Error error message. If you see this error message with your Panasonic camera, the internal memory area of the camera is either full or corrupted. Try downloading photos from the internal memory. If the error message continues to appear, you may need to format the internal memory area.
  2. Memory Card Locked / Memory Card error message. Both of these error messages are related to the memory card, rather than the Panasonic camera. If you have an SD memory card, check the write protect switch on the side of the card. Slide the switch up to unlock the card. If the error message persists, it's possible the memory card is corrupted and needs to be formatted. It's also possible the memory card was formatted using another device that is not compatible with Panasonic's file structure system. Format the card with your Panasonic camera to fix the problem ... but keep in mind that formatting the card will erase any photos stored on it.
  3. No Additional Selections Can Be Made error message. If your Panasonic camera allows you to "save" photos as your "favorites," you may find this error message because the camera has a limited number of photos that can be labeled as favorites, usually 999 photos. You cannot mark another photo as a favorite until you remove the favorite label from one or more photos. This error message also may occur if you're trying to delete more than 999 photos at one time.
  4. No Valid Picture error message. This error message typically refers to a problem with the memory card. Most of the time, you'll find this error message when you try to play back images from the memory card and the memory card is corrupted, empty, broken, or has been formatted with another camera. To fix the memory card, you must format it, but formatting a memory card causes all photos stored on it to be lost. Try inserting the memory card in another device or in your computer and try downloading any photos stored on it before formatting it with your Panasonic camera.
  5. Please Turn Camera Off And Then On Again error message. At least this error message says "please." This error message most likely occurs when one of the parts of the camera's hardware is malfunctioning, usually a jammed lens housing. To try to fix this problem, start by turning the camera off for a few seconds before turning it back on. If this doesn't fix the problem, try resetting the camera by removing the battery and memory card from the camera for at least 10 minutes. Replace both items and then try turning the camera on again. If the lens housing is jamming as the lens moves through its zoom range, try gently cleaning the housing, removing any debris or grime. If all of these steps don't fix the problem, you'll probably need a repair center for the camera.
  6. This Battery Cannot Be Used error message. With this error message, you've either inserted a battery that's incompatible with your Panasonic camera or you've inserted a battery that has dirty contacts. Gently clean the metal contacts with a dry cloth. In addition, make sure the battery housing is free of debris. You sometimes may see this error message if you're using a battery that's not manufactured by Panasonic. If the third-party battery is working OK to power the camera, you probably can ignore this error message.
  7. This Picture Is Protected error message. You'll see this Panasonic camera error message when the photo you've selected has been protected from deletion. Try working through the camera's menus to figure out how to remove any protection labels for the photo files.
Keep in mind that different models of Lumix cameras may provide a different set of error messages than is shown here. If you are seeing Panasonic camera error messages that aren't listed here, check with the user guide for your model of Panasonic Lumix camera for a list of other error messages, or visit the Support area of the Panasonic Web site.

Problem with new memory card


Hi,

I read an article about the same problem.....
Ill tell you the information about it.....

There are few situations when you find that your memory card is not functioning as expected and instead of data, you are getting few error messages:

· “CARD ERROR”
· “ Memory Card Error”
· “Card Not Initialized”
· “Read Error”

Display of either error message forces the user to think of solution as the affected memory card may be the house of the relevant digital data including photos, videos and audios.

Most of such error messages are curable through formatting the card.
As you said you have tried this already but no success......

So your card is suffering from the problem that the card is corrupt harshly.

This is the worst defect in the memory cards......So better get it changed..

The memory card corruption reveals that the data will remain inaccessible as formatting has failed to cure the issue. So the best deal would be to have photo recovery software. Photo recovery is also required in case of formatting success.
Picture recovery is quite practical through photo recovery software which benefits the users through their scanning ability and power to address each specific case of photo loss.........



Hope my info helps you.........
Thanx

Invalid File...


There is quite probably some connection error between the memory card and the camera's memory card bay. Take a clean anti-static fabric (like the one we use to clean eye-glasses) and wipe the contacts of the memory card and those of the camera's memory card bay/slot (if you can reach them somehow).

Have you tried another card? If another memory card works, then it's obviously a problem of the specific card.

MEMORY CARD ERROR READ


The memory card that has failed- do you have access to a card reader for the computer? If not we will try to use the camera. Download from www.konvar .com - PC Inspector. This is a recovery program install it and follow the prompts to locate the card in reader or camera will show on the computer a new drive. Then allow the camera to scan the card and you to select where any recovered images to go.
