7D wont work. It switches on but wont take a picture and the menu screen wont come on


Try formatting a memory card and trying it again. If the buffer is full and the card is full or corrupt the camera cannot take another image because it has nowhere to put it. Corrupt cards can cause a lot of problems Formatting cards regularly will made a big difference is camera performance. JUST BEWARE, FORMATTING PERMANENTLY ERASES ALL MEMORY CARD DATA., So copy the card info over to a HHD, or flash drive before you format.

I hae inserted a brand new memory card PYN 16mg with no pictures. I tried to format the memroy card and got "file sys error e00100"


16MB or 16GB? If you just bought it, I doubt it's 16MB so I'm going to assume it's 16GB.

The C330 works with MMC and SD cards. A 16GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to use cards 2GB and smaller.

If it actually is a 16MB card, please reply to this post and we'll take it from there.

My Cannon s5si keeps saying busy after I take a picture


If possible, test your camera with a different memory card. If the issue goes away, there may be corrupt data or bad sectors on your card. You may try formatting the card in your camera to see if it resolves this issue. (Note that formatting will erase all data from the card. Be sure to save any files you wish to keep before formatting the card.)

Kodak dc290 digital camera keeps giving formatting failed error


Try cleaning the contacts on the memory card(usually sraping them lightly with a knife helps with contact) and if that doesn't work try formatting the card in your computer.

If the card is a removable memory card, take it out and use a adapter on your computer.  Format the card on your computer then put it back into your camera.  It should be ok after formatting on PC.
