Same answer I just gave to someone else. The first thing to do is to try to copy any data that is already on the card before you put it back into the camera and initialize it! Otherwise you will lose every photo on the card!

Once you are sure that you have copies of the photos, or that there is nothing in there that you can recover, put it back into the camera, go into the camera's menu, and select format or initialize, and let it do its thing.

Another solution would be to put that card aside in case you can later recover the images from it, and buy a new card to use in the camera. This holiday season you can get a one or two gig card for nearly nothing!

My anti virus detected a trojan virus in the camera while i was transferring pictures. Could you tell me how to get rid of the virus from the camera device?


The virus isn-t in your camera, but in your memory card, yes. You must read your card on pc with card reader and scan the files for viruses,the same like other files in your pc.

I have a samsung s850 and i dont have cable for camera and have internal memmory where i have some pictures, i need to get the pictures from there onto a memory card but when i put it in camera i dont see...


if the file system of the memory card is not supported by the camera for e.g. most of the memory card needs to be formatted in FAT or FAT32 file system.better get a memory card reader and plug it in to your computer then once its detected by the computer right click the memory card then select properties then it will show what is the file type. try to format the memory card to FAT and check if your camera will detect it if not then format the memory card to FAT 32. but you have to make sure that you back up any files you have on your memory card beofre formatting

hope this help

Card not initializing then wont format


Hi
It sounds like the card is faulty (it does happen). I had one that acted similarly. You could try using the card in another camera to check - I have a card that works OK in Olympus camera but not at all in Fuji!
Best of luck

Memory card fault or camera fault?


When the camera writes the image files to the memory card, it also creates index/information files. Without those files the camera will not display the images.

Check the software you used to upload the images with. There's probably a checkbox or option that tells it to delete the images from the card after uploading them.

UPLOAD PICTURES FROM VIVITAR 8400 TO PC


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa.

Trying to upload pics on my camera


It has changed the format of the picture some how.When you open the pictures on your computer you had to have deleted the memory card.Before you put them back on the memory card pay attention to the name of the file.Copy the name your camera has called the file.The last three letters of the file is the key .
