MOST LIKELY YOU HAVE EITHER A COMPATIBILITY PROBLEM OR A BAD SD CARD. SORRY, BUT IF BOTH DON'T RECOGNIZE IT SOMETHING IS REALLY WRONG WITH THIS FLASH CARD. THEY DO AND HAVE BEEN BAD OUT OF THE PACKAGE. IF IT'S NEW, I'D TRY TO RETURN IT. IF BOUGHT ONLINE, MOST VENDORS ARE PRETTY GOOD ABOUT THESE PROBLEMS. HOPE THIS HAS HELPED!

Formattting again and again my SanDisk Extreme III 4.0 Gb CompactFlash Card


Hi, It may be possible that your CompactFlash Card is nearing its end. You can try formatting it after you have downloaded into your PC all the pictures. Try to use the camera's built-in formatting function. Thereafter plug it back to your PC and use a disk checking utility such as scandisk or Norton Disk Doctor. Do an intensive check including the free space. If the disk check shows any errors, then the CompactFlash Card is no longer a reliable storage media and you are better off purchasing a replacement rather than gamble that it will still work. If for some reason, even your PC can not access the card, you have to use a file recovery program to recover/download/copy the picture files and then try the disk check utility. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

Windows XP won't recognise the camera


Let me know if this helps: When a mass-storage class (MSC) Luminx camera is connected to a Windows XP system the camera does not appear as a mounted drive if there are no free drive letters between physical drives and mapped networked drives. Remapping the first network drive and leaving a free drive letter solves this issue. For example: If the Floppy Drive is drive ?A? the internal Hard Disk is ?C? the CD-ROM is ?D? and the mapped network drive is ?E? the Lumix camera will not mount. If the mapped network drive is moved to ?H? the Lumix will mount properly as drive ?E?. To change the drive letter mapping: Find the mapped network drive in the "My Computer" Right Click the drive and choose "Disconnect" Use the "My Network Places" to find the share to be mapped (that was removed above) Right click the shared item and choose "Map Network Drive..." Choose a drive letter from the pop-up list, remember to leave at least one free letter after the last physical drive Click "Finish" the share will now be mapped to the new drive letter and the camera should mount As long as there is a free drive letter between the last physical drive and the first network drive the actual letters do not matter. For instance if there were more than one hard drive (or DVD, CD-R, etc). This issue has only been documented with Windows XP and MSC class cameras, cameras capabale of using PTP USB mode should be set to PTP to avoid this issue.

Canon 450D is not being recognised by my computer (I run xp 32-bit). When I turn on the camera, windows comes up with a "install new hardware" option. I have installed the EOS utility etc. but still the...


Both the Canon XT 350D and the XTi 400D are recognized by any PC with XP windows operative system. It seems you have to check your USB port or USB cable used to connect your cameras to the PC. Sometimes, the PC does not recognize a specific device connected to an USB port. Yopu can get into the System -device manager screen, and uninstall the USB port, and run the utility to recognize changes in the device manager. This will install the USB port driver again, and if it is a software issue the reason of the problem, then it will be fixed.

Also, you can check your cameras and USB cable in a different PC so you can confirm if they both work has should be.

I bough a 7.1 Mega Pixel Optical Zoom Digital Camera and the software installation disk is crack in one half. I need this installation then I can download my picture in my computer. Thank you Sandra....


if your camera has normal USB cable, just connect it and Windows XP will detect it as Plug n Play thing and its memory will be recognised as Removable Disk. ;)
