Memory Card Error after Formating memory card

I mistakenly formatted a memory card that had been used successfully for years. All photos had been transferred and stored elsewhere, but now I get a Memory Card Error and cannot use the memory card. How can I correct the Memory Card Error and use the memory card again?

Instead of quick format, use the full format.  Then put back in your camera and format again with the camera.

Half of my pictures on my kodak m1033 are coming up as unrecognized file format! Ive never had this problem before! How do I recover my pictures!


So what kind of un-recognized format your photos turned into? Are they now RAW format? I guess yes because I met this kind of error on my Canon camera. In your case you should take a try this photo recovery software PhotoRetrieval. It should help you out. If you are Mac user, go to Photo Recovery for Mac.

Just connect your camera (memory card or stick etc) to the computer which has installed this program and start to recover. But just remember - DO NOT write anything back until you get the deleted data back. Best regards.

Memory card error - how to format?


plug the memory card into a PC. When it shows up in 'My Computer' as a drive; right click and select 'Format' from the tools tab. If it fails to format here, it is most likely that the card is irrepareably damaged.
PLEASE NOTE: Formating will erase all photo's, etc from the card. If you need to salvage photo's from the card, Take it to a local camera/photo shop that has a service to recover lost/erased photos from memory cards.

Format of sd card on canon ixus 60 lost pictures


Try PC Inspector "Smart Recovery" from the following listing. Select "Intensive" mode from the File/Settings menu. The program may need to run all night in this mode. If this doesn't recover the photos, am afraid then that they're permanently gone.

Have happily used my SLR panasonic digital camera and taken thousands of photos on the SD card, but today it says "memory card error please check the card". Never seen that before and cannot...


Hi,

There are a lot of these problems recently - The cards just give up after a while (designed that way I think).

You should be able to rescue some of the data by using this link.

Memory card error


do one thing. as per canons manual:
if any error is displayed when using your memory card do a low level formating of memory card.
but what to do for pictures in it? get a memory card reader from market. its very cheap. its also advisable to use memory card reader to transfer your photos rather than using direct connectiin to computer.
after doing a low level formating then transfer photos inside memory card from system, put it in ur camera, then enjoy.
hope you are clear with your problem. please give a feedback.
