    Does the card work in another camera or in a PC? It may not be compatible with your camera depending on this.

For your model camera, the problem is likely that your camera's internal clock battery has worn out. But Canon will repair this free of charge, including free shipping. Please see the following link for more info:

I have a Nikon D5300. I can see the photo count number increasing, but I cannot view the images and they are not going on the SD card. Where are they? The SD card is not full.


many small Nikon cameras have memory to store images ON THE CAMERA. If you have a memory card installed that the CAMERA CAN READ it will put images on the card. if the memory card is corrupted the camera will not use it.

First Backup all IMAGES on Memory Card to COMPUTER make sure you saved ALL images. This is IMPORTANT.

After you SAVED all images you PUT Memory card back in camera and FORMAT it (Format is in TOOL Menu that looks like a wrench)

Now if you can take an images and it saves to memory card you are done. To see if they go to MEMORY CARD. Turn off camera and remove MEMORY CARD and Check.

If it STILL does not work you may have a defective memory card.

Says memory card error and internal memory full. sometimes will recognize sd card but when picture is taken it either freezes camera or says no image/sound


It sounds like the camera is set to always save to the internal memory. With the SD card in place, adjust the settings to save to the SD card. (Sorry, I don't know the exact menu paths for your camera).
(If you have also copied your pictures off your camera, you can erase the internal memory and use that to take more pictures - however it will fill up again).

My camera is giving me a "no memory card" sign, but the card is inserted correctly. I have taken it out, cleaned it, and put it back, replaced the batteries, and everything. However, to no avail....


If the camera displays Memory card error, No Memory Card, or takes an abnormally long time to write an image to the memory card, when a memory card is inserted or any of the above error messages, make sure that the card is inserted properly. For SD card, make sure that the card lock switch is in the correct position and not stuck in-between.Try formating the memory card ,if after formatting the card in the camera the error persists, try another memory card. If this occurs with only the one card it is likely that the memory card is defective, if the error persists over more than one card the camera may require service.

I cannot play back images in my Sony cyber shot camera.


Please provide more information.

1. Does it have that error all the time and is unable to play back ANY images? Or does it say that for only some images?

It sounds like a corrupt memory card affecting one or more images that are not in the correct format for the camera to read it.

2. Did something lead up to this condition?
For example did anything happen to the camera? Was it dropped, got wet? or someone was messing with the memory card taking it in/out/in/out while the left sitting around?

Here are some potential solutions.
Sorry it's not a really short solution but there are several things that can cause this.

1. Re-seat the memory stick. So remove it and put it back in.
It should go in smoothly and all the way. See if it works then.

2. Try a different memory stick, take a photo or two and see if it plays back.

3. Erase the offending file.
A File Error can be caused by taking a photo with really low batteries and the camera shuts off halfway through saving the photo generating a corrupt file.

It often won't get over that on it's own so you have to use a computer to erase the offending file.

3. Fix corrupt card by reformatting it.
You could use a USB flash card reader (or connect the camera via USB) and retrieve your photo's to the computer so you have them. Then reformat the card and it's often OK again at that point.
If the problem comes back it's probably a faulty card.

Other causes:
A File Error can also be caused by loaning out the memory card and someone put it in a different camera for a while. Then when you get it back it can't read the new files on it. In that case use a computer to remove the extra files or backup your files and reformat the card.

Use the camera to format the card because Sony likes to do things their own way and they don't play well with others (with regard to compatability of batteries, memory cards, cables,,,etc) Their products don't fit or work with other company's products.

One Last check you could do is use a memory card reader (or the camera via USB if it mounts the card as a drive letter) and run a full Windows CheckDIsk on the card, to test it for errors.

My samsung s630 says the memory is full. I cleared photos from the sd card and internal memory, but still can only take four pictures in the lowest quality and size setting.


Memory card might gone bad but can do this following troubleshooting step. Formatting a memory ** This is used for formatting the memory. If you run [Format] on the memory, all images, including the protected images, will be deleted. Be sure to download important images to your PC before formatting the memory. Sub menus
[No] : The memory will not be formatted. Press the menu button three times and the menu display will disappear.
[Yes] : A [Processing!] message appears and the memory will be formatted. If you run FORMAT in Play mode, a [No Image!] message will appear. 1d36119.png
Be sure to run [Format] on the following types of memory card.
- A new memory card, or an unformatted memory card
- A memory card that has a file this camera can't recognize or one that has been taken from another camera.
- Always format the memory card using this camera. If you insert a memory card that has been formatted using other cameras, memory card readers, or PCs, you will get a [Card Error!] message. ** There might be bad sectors on your memory card.

Memory Card Error


Memory cards can often become corrupt or even fail without warning due to any multitude of reasons. For example, if your camera was to shut down whilst writing to the card it could corrupt the data on it. Ideally, this shouldnt happen but a defective battery or even aftermarket batteries may fail to alert the camera of its low state and then results in sudden loss of data. Also, it is important that any new cards purchased for a camera are formatted in the camera when first inserted. If your card has become corrupt, it may pay to invest in a qaulity brand memory card reader like Sandisk or Lexar as they often come with image recovery software which will aid you in retreiving images, providing you havent taken new pictures over the top of the old ones of course. Any good photo or computer store should be able to point you in the right direction. If the card in question continues to give you trouble, it may be time to invest in a new good qaulity card. Losing images for the sake of a few dollars savings on a cheap card is not really worth it. Regards...

Hi, 1.make sure your memory card is not damaged and also formatted by camera ,this is because if card is damaged or not recognized the camera stores image in internal memory which may be full by this time. 2.backup all your data and delete all from internal memory also format the card and try using it. All the best my friend regards sreejith
