    I found when I plugged the camera in using a USB cord I could view all the pictures so the problem was with the card not the camera formated the card and it seems to be okay now. Thanks so much

Your card reader or the card itself might be failing. The way to check the reader is to simply buy a cheap replacement USB reader to see if it corrects the problem. Example:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000I4RFO2/ref=s9subs_c1_23_at1-rfc_p_si1?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-1&pf_rd_r=0F2N9JTRPXSGCNJ05THH&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=463383351&pf_rd_i=507846

But if this doesn't help, then it's likely the card. In this case you'll then need to use recovery software to get at your pictures. There's plenty of good freeware available:

Finally after recovering your photos, consider formatting your card IN YOUR CAMERA. This may help rejuvenate your card, and help prevent this from happening again. If you don't know how, press menu, then select tools menu, then scroll down to the selection outlining your cards memory capacity and select it. Then follow the on-screen prompts for "low-level" format. Again only do this after you've recovered your photos as it will also erase your card.

When I view my photos I have already taken they look good until I try to zoom in, then the photos go fuzzy in multiple color stripes taking over the screen. Will my photos be fine when I load them to my...


Fuzzy pictures are most often caused by not holding the camera steady enough it's the number one problem with shooting "Live View". It's not the camera nor the memory card it's the person that's taking the picture. Sorry if that was to blunt. Now saying that not all the pictures will be blurry if you are shooting in full auto the camera is correcting for different scenes and lighting conditions so some will have a faster shutter then others so faster shutter speed will produce less blurry pictures.

Okay the memory card thing you should never swap memory card between cameras unless you format them first. Formatting wold remove all the pictures so what you did was really not good, I can get into a whole lot of issues why not but to keep this short It's not a good idea to swap card.

Transferring pictures from the camera to the computer requires having the camera software installed on the computer first. There are different sequences or flow of connectivity between camera makes one thing for sure is you don't "just unplug it" that is a sure fire way of corrupting the memory card.

With the camera turned off . The proper transfer sequence for your camera will be listed in the owners manual but, normally you connect the cable (if you connected a cable between it was the right cable) to the computer USB port not a hub or a keyboard. Then to the camera digital out put which looks like a mini USB port. Some will have you turn it on while others will have you press the "playback" button for about a second when it come on there will be a download screen appear on the computer, read your manual.

Okay after you have downloaded the pictures to the computer you need to format the memory card sound all complicated now but as you get onto it it's like breathing, you just do it.

Possibly, but you may no longer be able to view them on your camera. If you hadn't saved your pictures to your computer yet, try to do so. If your computer also has a problem seeing the pictures, you may need to use recovery software (see this link). Finally, after you've saved your photos to your camera, you should format the card in your camera to rejuvenate the card. If prompted to format your card by your computer, don't do it. It uses a different file handling structure than your camera.

My Fujifilm s5000 camera turns on but when I go to take a picture it turns off. I can view my pictures but can't take any.


Your memory card or internal memory may be full. I've run into situations where the card full doesn't flash on the monitor or LCD screen because there is lets say 3 gigs of memory left but the picture you are taking is 3.5gig's it won't take the picture because there isn't enough memory to put the image anywhere. Download your pictures to your computer, format your memory card and all should be good again. If you are using the internal memory you will need to obtain (buy) a memory card for your camera and download from the internal memory each picture from the memory card one by one until all the internal pictures are on the removable memory card then download these to the computer. After you have them on the computer go back into the internal memory and delete each of thse pictures and you are ready to start taking pictures once again. it took me longer to type this then the process will take to do.

Your mistake was in assuming your camera would recognize any information your computer put on the card. It won't because of the difference in the operating systems. To get your card to work properly in your camera again, you will have to format it in the camera.

Hi

  1. 1 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. 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
  3. 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  4. 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  5. 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. 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.

If you are refering to the pictures you took on the camera before you put in the memory stick, then you took those pictures on the internal camera memory. the camera is set to default on the memory card whenever one is in. To get to the pictures on the internal memory, remove the memory stick and you should be able to view the pictures. To transfer those pictures to your computer follow the steps in the manual, just be sure not to have the memory stick in.
