Re: memory card error

The problem seems to be that the card has been formatted incorrectly (probably by your computer, if you used it in a card reader?). Unfortunately the camera can't reformat it itself, and default computer formatting is incompatible. You'll want to download the program Lowlevelformat.exe from this website--, install it, reformat your memory card with it, and the camera will be happy with it again.

What specific memory card is required?

Memory cards should be formatted before use. They should also be formatted each time you finish downloading pictures from it.

Shutter button does not respond to push. If D-90 camera is turned on, what is the most likely error I am making? Allan Fork

There are several possibilities.

Do you have a memory card installed? By default the camera locks the shutter release if no memory card is installed. Install a memory card if you have one, or change Custom Setting F6 to "Enable release" and see if you can take a picture.

What release mode are you in? If the camera is set to one of the remote release modes, it's waiting for an infrared signal from the ML-L3 remote release. Turn the camera off and on again, then try to take a picture.

What focus mode are you in? In AF-S, the shutter will not release until focus is acquired. Try turning off the autofocus (there's a switch just below the lens release button) and see if you can take a (probably blurry, but who cares?) picture.

Does the battery have sufficient juice? Press the menu button, navigate to the Setup Menu, then select Battery Info. If it's below 10%, I'd charge the battery. Of course, if the menu doesn't come up on the screen, that would tell me that the battery probably needs to be charged.

Is there a lens attached? What type? Certain older lenses and others lack the electronics to fully support newer digital cameras. With such lenses, you have to switch to Manual mode. Turn the mode dial to M and see if you can take a (probably an improperly exposed, but again, who cares?) picture.

Are you getting any error messages? If so, or if none of the above apply, then the camera may need service.

A little hand with a no sogn through it and the word busy

The busy sign generally comes when:
Image is being recorded to the memory card, or playback mode is starting up.

It possible your memory card is full, please therefore down load your pictures and try again after erasing and reformating the memory card..
Alternatvely, please also reset all the camera ands menu settings to default.

Hope it works for you.

Copying pictures from computer to memory card

i have seen this error and i dont know why it does that. you may want to try buying a micro disk setup that fits into a sd adapter that will fit in your camera.

then you can take out the micro disk when full and put it on a usb adapter and plug right into a usb port.

i know this sounds like more work but so far i havent had a lock up on that or error yet. go to if you want to see the different adapters for the sd disk and micro disk and usb etc....

maybe this might help

Samsung digimax 130 camera memory error

If memory card is full, just try to delete one picture and try to take a picture and check if it will be saved in the memory card.

There is a Delete All option.

Or if you want to, you may format the memory card and the pictures will be deleted.

Memory Card Error

try another laptop (friend's)..I suspect yours has a NTFS hard drive format while the card has a FAT type format. You can see which type by starting defrag and reading screen.
