Question about Olympus Camedia C-350 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Can't take photos

When I was taking photos I got a beeping sound and a screen telling me that it was card set-up. It shows only two options: Format or Power Off with the arrows going only up or down. I can't get out of this screen. When I chose format it warned me that it was erasing all, so I switched off because I was scared to lose my photos. What can I do? Please help. I need the camera badly at the moment.
Thank you

Using a USB SD card-reader, copy all the photos from your camera SD-card to your PC, then try format option in your camera, this way the photos in your SD card are safe(in the computer). OR
insert a new/empty SD card into your camera. Use the format option and start clicking photos.

After locking memory card, do I then unlock it to take pictures and will that then erase the memory card or can you tell me how to so


Locking the memory card prevents you from taking and adding photos to the memory card. It also prevents you from deleting photos from the memory card.
If you want to erase all the photos off the memory card. unlock the memory card, go to the camera's Menu and scroll through the settings ti Format the memory card, then format the memory card.

I just bought one, every card I put in it it tell me the card is full, insert new one


Remove the memory card, now! if you have used the internal memory even once, go to menu and select "format" follow the on screen prompt to erase the data, now install the memory card it should allow you to take photo's.

Unrecognized File Format comes on screen instead of picture.


Sounds like you're pulling out the card without using the "safely remove hardware" function. This corrupts the card. If your pics are safely on the computer, format the card in the camera to erase it and get it working properly again.

My camera kodak easyshare C1013 cannot show pictures. it says "unrecognised file format"..i need help


The camera stores the pictures in a JPEG format only. You can use .jpg files in most image editing programs. Videos are stored in a .mov format that you can view with QUICKTIME software or KODAK Picture Software.

* What you can do is transfer the pictures to your computer and check the file format
* You can delete photo then just take a photo again.

Unrecognized file format means the file format of the picture in the camera is not JPEG or the memory card is faulty

Try some photo recovery software to rescue the files on your digital memory card, here are some for your options.

Photo Recovery (for Windows)
Photo Recovery for Mac

Be careful: Before your pictures are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the card in case the original files(your pictures) are overwritten.

Write protect


Sounds like you will need to format the memory card. This will permanently erase all the data from the card and then you will be able to use it again. To format the card: Press the Menu button - right arrow to Setup - Press Ok- right arrow to format option. You will see format yes or no. Choose Yes and press ok. This will clear the write protect message and the card can be used again.

Canon Powershot A570 digital camera I had around 250 images in my memory stick, but all of a sudden when I tried to click another photo, all the images disappeared and showed the last picture clicked...


As all your photos are stored in your Canon digital camera's memory stick you could tryCard Data Recoverywhich will help you recover pics without casusing any damage to your photos. My bff recommended this extremely easy-to-usel software to me and he had used it successfully to recovered photos, music, etc. from his Sony memory card. Best wishes!
