    My SD card was working fine. My daughter was recording video on it and it fell over. Now the camera says it doesn't recognize the file type and my laptop says in disk isn't formatted. It has lots of pictures on it. Can these pictures be saved?

    i have the same problem!! it worked fine for months, then one day i put some new songs on it, put it into my phone, and when i went to listen to my music, it wouldn't load. the screen going to the vcast music section stayed blank red for the longest time. i finally had to take my phone battery out and put it back in. when i go to look at my pictures videos and sounds, it takes forever to 'initialize.' i tryed to delete all of my songs sounds videos and pictures but it wouldn't let me delete some of them. i was able to get rid of all my videos on the card, but now i cant get to the videos saved on my phone! what can i do to fix this???

First, try to take the "micro" card out of the main body and re-insert. the internal contacts may just be a little bit dirty. (you may want to also GENTLY buff the internal AND external contacts with a SOFT {cotton} emery type of fingernail board or Q-tip with a SMALL amount of rubbing alcohol. {let it get dry before you re-assemble}). try that and see if it works for you.

    OK, try this:

    go to Wal-Mart or K-Mart and such, you can get a SD reader/ writer (such as Targus, about $9 USD, what I use) and put your SD card into it, then plug into USB (USB 2.0 is current standard, but will work with USB 1.1, just slower). PC will ask if you want to play/ record from/to the removable drive, select which program you want to use OR select "take no action" then go to "my computer" and select the drive letter for the card (E, F, G etc.) open the file folder that you want to put your photos into (I STRONGLY recommend that you COPY FILE(S) and NOT "move file(s)" as that if something crashes you still HAVE the orig. files) select to copy to the correct drive letter and PLEASE remember to "remove hardware safely" or you could KILL the files and or the drive(s) that you were using. (did that TWICE before I realized what I was doing wrong). good luck!

My camera doesn't see SD 16GB anymore. Worked fine until a few days ago. SD works fine on PC


Try inspecting the memory card slot, eventually with a magnifying glass. Sometimes just a little bit of dust, a small paper or other debris, can block data transfer. Be sure al contacts on the card, but also in the camera are clean and shining. Never use sharp tools in or around a camera. Don't scratch the contact points.
And to make sure you can put pictures on a memory card, there must be space. If possible try to format the card in the camera. Just to make sure the camera sees the correct file system on the memory card.

My sd card wont read. it says that its not initialized. i flipped the thing in the sd card but nothing changed. how do i get my card to work. it worked fine until i put the sd card in the printer over...


Had you ever initialized (formatted) the card, especially when you first got it? If not, an unformatted card will work fine initially, but almost always corrupts with time after many pictures are added. To prevent this issue permanently, you should always format a new card. But note formatting will erase the card! If you haven't saved your pictures yet, and you're having trouble locating them on the card with your computer, see this article. After you've recovered and saved your photos, format the card IN THE CAMERA using the camera format feature (look for it in its menus). This will rejuvenate the card, and prevent this from happening again.

Most likely you got a hot copy of the maps and it worked fine for a few minutes in the new unit. Check the course of the map because they know if they are purchased new or are being copied. Not saying you did anything wrong just saying the SD card can only be used for one unit. Contact the company and they will set you straight.

Micro Sd Not fitting inside adapter


Try cleaning with compressed air (canned air), both card and Micro SD reader.

Micro SD cards can simply fail, even without doing anything - I know, twice they worked fine for months, then suddenly nothing!

Sorry, I wish I could help further.

Kodak Easyshare CX7430 losses memory when shut off


I have the same camera and the same problem. Can't use SD cards anymore, only the obsolete Multimedia Cards that are extremedly hard to find on shops because SD cards are the substitute for them... hope you can find a Multimedia Card. At least mine works fine with them.

Micro SD 2 GB just stopped working


The PIC or EEPROM inside these cards may not be working. I guess you best bet is to buy a new one try Kingston brand or go with another Sandisk.

SD Card Reader won't work?


have you tried other sd cards before or is this the first time?

if you have and its just this time it hasent make sure its working in your camera or mp3 player or where ever it came from :-)
if it works have a look in your device manager to make sure there are no problems with the drivers.

1 start
2 control pannel
3 system
4 then the hardware tab and click the device manager.

if there are anyproblems there is useually a little symbol next to the device just double click on it and have a look for the error code.

if all else fails try reinstaling the driver for your card reader or find an updated drivr download.

hope this helps

Coolpix 5200 will not read sd card


Hope it's not the reader in the camera, first try rubbing the card contacts gently with an eraser and blowing in the slot. It may solve it, if not looks like an expensiver repair job.
