Question about Fuji FinePix S5100 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Deleting? When I put the card into the reader then into the computer there aren't any pictures yet when I try to take a picture I get 'Card full' message and although I try to delete the images from the card when it's in the camera, that doesn't work either. I hope someone, somewhere can help me, my husband is even less technically minded than me! Here's hoping! Noonoo.

Why is my nikon coolpix L26 not uploading my pictures

First, use the review function to make sure your camera actually took the pictures. Assuming it did, I would remove the SD memory card from the camera and use a card reader to transfer the pictures to your computer. If your computer does not have an SD memory reader, many USB readers are available for under $20. They are USB devices and once they are attached to your computer and you insert the SD card, the computer will act as if the SD card is another external hard drive. You will be able to transfer your photo files from the SC card to a file on your hard drive via copy and paste or drag and drop. Although you can erase your card when you are done by deleting the files, it is better to put the card back in your camera and use the format function found in you camera's menus.

Memory card is full and when I plug in the USB cord and turn on the camera I get a message that my device is not connected or is busy, or that it contains no pictures!!

Causes of memory card corruption
  • Turning off a camera before an image is completely written to the memory card.
  • Removing the memory card from a camera while an image is being written to the card.
  • Removing the card from a memory card reader while files are still being transferred to a computer.
  • Batteries conking out as files are being transfered directly from the camera to a computer. Note: always make sure you have fully charged batteries before transferring images.
  • Removing the card from a card reader while folders and files from the card are open on a computer.
  • Opening, deleting, renaming or moving files on the card while its contents are open on a computer.
  • Using a memory card which has not been formatted in the camera. Use the delete/erase function when needed, however a card should be regularly formatted.
  • Formatting a card in a computer instead of the camera.
  • Inserting a second memory card into a card reader before closing and removing the first when viewing images on the card from a computer.
  • Taking photos when camera batteries are nearly empty.
  • Taking photos too rapidly so the camera can not complete writing one image before starting the next.
  • Continually shooting and deleting, shooting and deleting images when the card is full.
  • Letting a memory card get too full before downloading the images to a computer or storage device. Cards that are too full may overwrite the card headers.
  • Using a memory card from one camera in a different camera without formatting it in the new camera first.

Lost photo's after recharged camera

If the pictures were on the card and you have not shot more pictures or video since then with the same card in the camera, their probably all still there.

Put the card in a reader, and scan it with image recovery software. The process takes a lot of time, but will give you all the pictures that are currently on the card, even if you accidentally erased them.

Deleting pictures alters the way their identified, but does not remove them from the card. When you recover them, the program looks for images that are no longer identified normally, and puts them in another file with new identification so your computer can see them.

When you add pictures to a card it overwrites the old picture files, and that permanently destroys the old files. Formatting the card removes all the picture information on the card permanently.

Retrieve deleted pictures

If the pictures were on a memory card and you haven't done anything to the card since deleting them, then you have a chance to recover them. Do a Google search for "data recovery software" and select a program for your computer and operating system. Put the card into a card reader attached to your computer and run the program.

Ive been using the xd card on my fuji finepix s5200 for many times and today when I was about to upload the pictures in my laptop the card says it has to be initialized. How do I initialize a card and if...

I hate answering a question with a question but can't see a way around this. Are you using the camera to download pictures to the computer? If so what you need to do is purchase a card reader and I would suggest a card reader that does many different memory card types.

What this card reader does is steps completely around your camera and downloads pictures directly to your computer.

The Card Reader plugs into a USB port on your computer and looks at the reader (once the memory card is inserted) like an external mass storage device or external hard drive.

You then download the pictures from the reader/memory card to a file you create on your computer.

The nice thing about this is that it won't matter what camera you have or memory card you use the camera is no longer in the flow of pictures downloaded to the computer.

After the pictures are on the computer you can put the memory card back in the camera and "Format" the card this function is normally found in the set up menu.

When I go to upload my pictures to my computer, it tells me the some pictures are already in my address book, not sure what that is, but all the pictures are new. It uploads maybe 2/3 of the new pictues...

Personally I wouldn't be using the camera software if it's deleting images without the command to do so.

What you can do is purchase a card reader with multiple memory card ports that way when you do get another camera the reader will have the port for the memory card.

Anyway the reader plugs into a USB port on your computer and looks at the reader as an external hard drive (Mass storage device) Depending on your operating system you should have an application called "My Documents" Open a new folder I generally use the date and img. then insert the memory card into the reader and the computer will either bring it up on the desk top as a hard drive or you may need to co fetch it in "My Computer" (I don't know your system) once that's done you can open the picture files copy and paste them into the new folder. Then you just need to open your camera software program and click on open and go to that file.

Once you have your pictures secured on the computer Hard Drive then format the memory card.

Formatting clears all the surface and makes the memory card ready to accept new picture data.

I suspect you have been deleting pictures and deleting pictures again and again well, you should be formatting after each time you download the pictures to the computer.

I know that will solve the problem and you can use the same system when you get a new camera

How do I clear the memory card? It is 90% full ms530

If you already install the driver in a PC, then you can connect your camera via cable data, then you can move your picture files into PC's hard drive and delete the pictures in your camera's memory card. Or you can put off your memory card and open it via card reader. Do the same way (copy-paste-delete) to the picture files. After deleting process, you'll get more space in your memory card so you can put it back into your camera and you can use to save many pictures again.

Hope this help and be kind to rate please.

My screen cracked, I can take pictures with it though, but I dont know how to delete it, due to the cracked screen. So can anyone just walk me though deleting pictures ?

Without being able to see the on-screen display, you couldn't be sure you're doing the right things even just following step-by-step instructions. The simplest thing to do is take the memory card out of the camera, put into a card reader on your computer, and treat it like a flash drive. You can just go through the pictures on the card, deleting the ones you don't want and copying the others right into folders on your hard drive. Many computers have card readers already. If yours doesn't you can buy a USB reader locally or from many online sources.

Memory card

From your description it sounds like your card is full. Are you able to download to your computer? If you are able to do that then try deleting individual photos on the card using the Computer to do so. If you can achieve that then try to Re-format the card back in your Camera. Hope this helps you.
