Memory card contains no images after camera turned back on

Memory card is Kodak 1Gb and worked fine for a year in another Nikon coolpix. It worked find for a month in this L18 coolpix. But now when the camera is turned back on and playback accessed, the message "Memory Contains No images" comes up. Before the camera was turned off, images were stored ok in the memory card. This may have started when all the old images in the memory card were bulk erased to start over, but no problems were apparent at the time. The internal memory in the camera apparently stores images ok and they are still in the internal memory when the camera is turned back on.

SOURCE: SD memory card

You could take your camera's card to one of those stores that have the machines for printing digital pictures and check if it can find your images. Was it only the images from that particular shoot that you can't see? If you have no success, perhaps get your camera checked at a camera store, they have more expertise than an electronics store.

It may be the images are there but the camera is not reading them... I would try to find a place (possibly a photo retailer or a computer repair place) with a card reader to check out to see if that is the case.

SOURCE: My kodak easyshare sv811 digital picture frames music not playing

Most files you download say from I tunes are "protected" files. They will not transfer. You have to convert it to an MP3 file. I found a free converter on the web that will convert your protected files to MP3 file then you can download it to your photo frame. i just bought one today and it took me ALL DAY to figure this out. What a PAIN! good luck!

SOURCE: my memory card locked! i need to know how to unlock it

There is a small switch at the base that needs to be moved to the "Unlocked" position. It's at the side of the card.

SOURCE: Westinghouse DPF-01411 Digital Photo Frame

Things I have learned after messing with 3 different Westinghouse DPFs (1 -14" & 2 - 10").

1. Just tap the buttons. Exit first and then Menu or one of the other functions. Holding them down too long seems to nullify the functions. Only the Power button needs to be held down for a second or two to turn the device on or off.

2. Use a USB to mini-USB cable to access the internal memory. Expect flakiness when you plug in the cable. Sometimes it will warn the USB 2 device is plugged into USB1 port. Ignore this and just look for a string of removable drive letters to show up in My Computer window. The one named FLASH Drive is the internal memory.

3. I reformat the internal memory (FAT32 seems to work fine) and this gets rid of the troublesome canned pictures that may be causing your lock ups.

4. I have had good succcess the xD memory cards from 16MB to 1GB.

5. I have not seen any prblems with edited photos or long file names - just be sure they are named with .jpg extension and not .jpeg. - go figure?

Hope this helps...

Error message: file contains no image data


Hello!
I may be able to add some advice on how to solve this unfortunate problem of "file contains no image data". I have been suffering from the same problem. I have recently been on some amazing vacations and the photos I have lost due to this problem have been invaluable to me! I would pay an insane amount of money to get these photos back, but unfortunately I cannot!
I have a nikon coolpix camera. I contacted the nikon coolpix technical support center. I spoke with a representative who asked me what type of memory card I have. As it turns out I have a generic memory card, which is not compatable with nikon. The only memory cards brands that are indicated to be used with the nikon coolpix camera that I have are as follows: Toshiba, Panasonic, Lexmark, and Sandisk. Those are the only 4!
I was told that if you use another memory card besides the memory cards brands that I have listed... that the camera may communicate incorrectly with your memory card, which results in data that is incomplete to support an image. When this happens you will only see a portion of your image, and you cannot get it back. These bad images with incomplete saved information are called "corrupt files". The representative told me that there are some programs that are available to purchase that may be able to correct corrupt .jpg files, but she believes that they are memory card brand specific.
To put it simply, when you do not have to compatable memory card in your camera, it is as if your camera is speaking english and your memory card is speaking chinese and they are not communicating properly (this was the way the representative explained this problem to me). So check your user manual for your specific type of camera or look it up online to see what type or brand of memory card you should be using! I truly hope this helps someone avoid losing invaluable photos!

Nikon coolpix 5700 shows no memory left after purchasing a new card & batteries


The largest CompactFlash card that Nikon approved for the 5700 is 256MB, which is what I'm using in my 5700. That's small by today's standards and you probably won't even find it in stores. I see some web sellers have 256MB cards for only $6 or so. Other commercial card sellers on the web claim that the 5700 will handle CF cards up to 1GB capacity. That's what I might try since online they're selling for as little as $8 plus shipping. Given that the 5700 was introduced in 2002, any cards bigger than 1GB probably won't work.
