Memory cards go bad, that?s a fact of life. I?ve found that trying to read a camera formatted card in a PC is not always a reliable test, borrowing another working card and trying it in your camera is. If you can?t borrow one another cheap test is to purchase an inexpensive card and trying that. You can generally find older (smaller capacity) cards on sale for $20 at Best Buy. If a new card doesn?t work then I would go the route of repair shop?..

Umm if it was dropped and this is occuring after i would suggest taking it in to get repaired... However if you have a card reader or anything like that(most new labtops have the built in) shove the card into one of them and see if the computer can read it...if computer can read it I think the camera needs some work.

My computer quit reading the card or the camera, so I can't get pictures from the camera onto my computer


Try removing theSD memory card from your camera and inserting the SD memory card into an USBmemory card reader then connect the USB card reader into the USB port of aworking computer. The computer will see this USB card reader and SD memory cardas an external storage device. You can open the camera photo folder and copythe photos to your computer.

Why does the screen read card error


There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". The most common cause is having the tiny slide switch on the side of the card in the wrong position. The second most common is trying to use a 4GB or higher SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. There are also other common causes if the above didn't help, with troubleshooting steps for this problem listed here.

I didn't delete any of my pictures then when i opened my camera again... some of them said file error..


Sometimes the camera just has a problem. Put the memory card into your computer without taking more pictures or messing with it on your camera. The computer usually will read the file error pictures just fine.

My mobiles memory card goes on saying checking memory card or memory card not inserted i gave for service some six times and every time they reinstalled my software thats it. what should i do now?


You didn't mention the make or model of your digital camera; but I don't think any digital camera requires any type of software installed on the memory card.

With that being said, and if I am correct, then you should be able to take the SD card (or what ever type of memory card your camera uses), and plug it into your computer; providing your computer has a card reader.

See if your computer can read your memory card; if so try and cut and paste a simple file onto the card and see if you can save a file onto your memory card. If your computer can read and write files onto your memory card, then a good chance your memory card is good, and there might be something wrong with the camera.

If you can not read the memory card with your computer, then try formating the card (make sure you format it with FAT32). Now try and read and write to your memory card with your computer, if this still fails; then there is a good chance your memory card is no good.

If after formating your card, and the card passes the read and write test, try putting the card back into your camera and see if it works; There might be a chance that the person that serviced your camera "6 times" formated your card incorrectly.

Good luck

Hi sir

  • Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from Amazon.com or Buy.com
  • 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
  • 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  • 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  • 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
  • 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

    My memory card is in my camera, but when it takes a picture and i put my memory card in the computer to view the pics, there's nothing on the memory card. what's wrong


    A few things... Make sure that the card is the one recommended for the camera. Can you play back a picture which you have taken? That needs to be checked first. Put the card in the camera, take a picture then view it on the camera's LCD. If you can see pictures, then some thing is wrong on the computer and the way it is reading the card.
