My friend wanted to put her memory card (she had a different brand of camera) in my camera to print out a picture on my printer dock; however, ever since then, my camera will no longer hold a charge and now it won't even turn on. Do you think her memory card had a virus on it or possibly loaded some kind of software on my camera which may have caused it not to operate?

Re: Camera will not turn on
No not at all, the likely problem is your batteries. Digital cameras need to run on rechargeable batteries, If you are already using rechargeables,have a look at tha mAh value which should be written on the side. Retailers recomend a value of at least 1800,personally i would go for 2100.

There are several different memory sticks and the are not fully compatible. Be sure you bought the right memory stick for your camera Refer to the manual. Check in the computer if there are any pictures at all on the memory stick. Please don't copy pictures from another camera to the stick to view them on a camera. Most camera's only can show the jpg pictures that were shot with that oa a same camera. Even in one brand of camera's there can be differences in the file you want to view.
Without knowing the exact Make and Moddel of the camera -- there are often 2 general routes pictures can be obtained from an internal memory.
1. With memory card in camera, go into your camera settings.
2. Within settings there should be a storage reader (which looks at your external card) and should be an additional option to copy files (note that most cameras have little internal memory as external cards are so cheap)
1. Put camera in camera dock / charger with USB connection
2. connect camera with USB connection to computer
3. Go to Start -> My Computer -> [yourcamera]
4. Within your camera folder there will be a picture folder (different based on brands) that should house pictures that reside on internal memory.
If the "other" pictures have been taken with a differed camera your camera will not read the memory card until it is formatted to your camera. Formatting will erase all pictures on the card. You need to download the pictures to the computer. Format the memory card and then you will be able to transfer pictures from the internal memory to the memory card then to print or to the computer. You should format the memory card after each time you download the pictures to the computer.
Once you use a computer to write to a memory card, it no longer works properly in a camera because of the different operating system. The only way for the card to work again is to format it in the camera. This erases and optimizes it for the camera.
First of all, check to see if all the pictures appear when the card is in the camera. If so, then your camera is making new folders as you shoot and not continuing the numbering sequence. Take the card to a store like Walmart that has a Kodak picture maker machine. The pictures will all show up and you can print them or even make a cd from them.
I had to replace two memory cards. Of course I tried the Lock slider thing on the side with no success. The card is cheaply made. I bought a different brand this time, Lexar. I think my old brand was Dane something. It seemed to happen whenever my battery got low. The card looked like a piece of cardboard and acts like one too!
