CHECK TO SEE IF THE SMALL PROTECT TAB SWITCH HAS BEEN CLOSED ON THE CARD. IT'S JUST BELOW THE TOP EDGE. IF THIS DOESN'T WORK BORROW A FRIENDS CARD AND SEE IF IT WILL CLICK INTO THE SLOT. OK? IF YOU NEED MORE HELP, REPLY TO: ARCLIGHT1217.

Xd picture card will not click into place on Olympus e-420. Results in prompt "card reader error."


Are you sure it is a xD card and not an SDXC?

Then there should be a little arrow, pointing in the direction it should be going while inserting.
Try to eject the card and reinsert the card.
If you never used a xD card, and nobody else ever tried to put something in the slot, the card should go in smooth.
After placing the card, don't forget to format the card in the camera.

I have TECHNIKA SH-A366 when I switch this on this message comes on the screen CARD ERROR and it wont allow me to take any pictures please someone help me solve this problem.


It sounds like the memory card (what stores the photos) may be faulty, not inserted correctly or may need cleaning. There should be a memory card slot on the side or underneath the camera. Once you have found the slot push the memory card and it should click out of place. Give the memory card a quick blow and reinsert it, if the error still appears it may be the fact that the memory cards capacity is too large for the camera to handle or is incompatible. If you have another memory card, try that. Comment if you still have an issue. Good luck :)

Memory card error


Make sure your camera can take San Disk. It probably takes a certian card or the SD card might be upside down. Some brand and models stay this fault and the problem with the SD is that it does not accept a memory card higher than 1GB. This info isn't in the user guide. Have you tried an external usb card reader?

Pull the card out and re-insert. the most likely problem is the card was not seated properly in the slot.

Keep us updated.

How to copy pictures in digital frame internal memory


http://www.digitaltips.org/imaging/digit... ...
The following items about digital frames are from the link above where you may find additional information.

Memory
Another important feature to consider is how many images you can store on the frame. Most have slots for loading pictures directly from a camera's memory card. Make sure it accepts the same type or types of cards that your camera(s) do, as this will make transferring images to the frame significantly simpler. Also, look for a frame with a large internal (built-in) memory if you plan on loading lots of images for slide shows, videos and so forth.

Connectivity
With all the attention your digital frame will get from friends, family and members of your own household, you'll want to keep it updated with your most recent photos. Having multiple connectivity options can make this task a lot simpler. Most frames can connect to your PC using a ubiquitous USB cable, while Blue tooth and WiFi-enabled frames let you sync wirelessly from laptops, camera phones and cameras that are WiFi enabled. Many WiFi-enabled frames can automatically sync images from PCs on your home network or from photo sharing sites on the Internet, making it simple to keep updated.

If your computer has memory card slots, you can copy from the computer to a memory card.

If there are no memory card slots on your computer, purchase a Targus card reader at Walmart for $8.88 or another brand for less at Ritz/Wolf/Kit camera. Also, they do 3½ x 5" digital prints for 6¢ each on Tuesday and Wednesday.

CAUTION To prevent memory card corruption, keep batteries charged and don't delete. Wait for lights to stop flashing then turn camera off before removing memory. For card readers, double click Safely Remove Hardware. Select then click Stop and OK.

Have just been playing with this and found that it works really well, but you should first format the memory card in the camera because it adds files to the card you will need.

Next, take a picture of something with the camera.

Place the memory card in the card reader and go to My Computer.

Open the memory card and you should see a folder on the left (DCIM) that has your picture. Do not open the MISC folder on the right.

Double Click on the DCIM folder and you should see another folder (e.g.,100HPM417) which includes the name of your camera. Double Click on that folder and you should see the picture you just took.

When you copy from the computer to a memory card, that is the folder where your computer pictures must be copied. You may only be able to copy one picture at a time from My Computer.

One last thing, the file names of your pictures must not have any additional letters or those pictures will not be seen by the camera. Also, the file name format must match the file name of the picture you took e.g., HPIM1903. Rename files to the format of your camera photos.

If you have trouble with this, it may be easier to right click on Start and then left click Explore. Find and select the pictures you want to copy and then near the top left, click the X next to Folders to see a place to select Copy files. You can then select the memory card folder e.g.,100HPM417, that you clicked to see the picture you took and click Copy. You can copy pictures easier with this method.

MY MEMORY CARD WILL NOT LOCK INTO PLACE WHEN I PUSH IT INTO SD SLOT


  • Most likely the SD card is not being pushed in far enough to lock into place. You really need to use your fingernail to push it in past flush until you hear a clicking sound, at which point the card will lock into place.
  • Here are full instructions for insertion and removal of the SD card: Insert the memory card with the metal contacts going into the slot first and facing up at you. In other words the SD card label should be upside down when you insert it this way. You need to push the card in past flush to have the spring mechanism lock the card into place. To get the card out of the slot, push the card in past flush and then the spring mechanism will release it. You will hear a click when the card locks into place or is released from the slot.

    The chip inside the camera(gigaware 4gb) im inserting the square chip into the **** it fits in my computer. my computer has more than one. question: how do i get pictures off that chip and on to my...


    I think you mean you have an SD Card or Memory card from your camera which will fit into the memory card / SD card slot on your computer. You want to know how to get your photo's from the card onto your computer.

    Place the card into the slot on your computer.

    Go to "My computer" (Start> My computer)
    Click on My computer and it should show all the "slots" as different drives.
    Once you have placed the card into one slot you should "see" it on one of the drives.

    Alternatively, see if you have a shortcut icon called "button monitor" - it should be next to or near the clock at the bottom of your screen. If you have this, then clicking on it should show your card as well.

    Once you have found the right drive right click on it and choose "open"
    You may have to choose which program to open it with, any photo program will work (windows picture viewer etc).

    Once you have your pictures showing you can save them to your computer.

    Hope that helps.

    Memory card


    the memory card slot ratchet is faulty: it does not click in place. This needs to be replaced. I won't recommend repairing a camera by yourself because there are miniature screws and soldered wires inside. You need to go to a camera repair shop.

    I can't find the memory card slot on th 3785 camera. where is it.


    I checked out the user manual and it looks like the SD memory card slot is located right next to the battery. Just open the battery compartment and look near the hinge and you will see a place to put an SD memory card. Here is a link to a pdf version of the manual which is nice to have even if you have the printed version:
