Question about SanDisk 2GB Memory Stick Micro M2 Memory Card w/Memory Stick PRO Duo Memory Card Adapter

1 Answer

Computer won't read memory stick

Pictures are there as we can view them on the camera, but when trying to load them onto the computer, it acts as if there's no disk in the computer. Computer keeps saying to insert disk into drive. This is a new problem as we were able to load some just last week.

    I have 1GB M2 card and when I am trying to read it on the my Hama card reader it reacts strange. First the XP opens it but when I am opening the DCIM folder I cannot get the pics preview as well as to open them. Cannot copy the pics as well.

    I can see the photos on the camera, but when I plug the camera directly to the
    PC, OR when I insert the 2GB SanDisk directly into the PC,

    I cant preview the photos nor open them.

    It says the reason is cuz the photos aren't correct bitmap photos and should be changed...
    I'm quite computer literate, but I discussed this with an EXTREMLY comp litrate friend::
    So, I went to Tool, folder option, view, and changed the hide extensions, and changed the .jpg to .bmp. We've tried opening the photos through every means and explored all possible options.
    and failed epically.
    He said he thinks its a freak error.
    Which is probably true because there'ra only 'bout 3ish people here with the same problem.

    Its a double problem, because there are some photos that are perfectly fine.. apart from cant delete them.
    Well, I can... but they re-apear.

    Only Solution:
    Go to the kodak machine/camera machine, print off the photos.
    Use a scanner if needing to digitalise the image to PC.

    throw away the SanDisk Memorblah
    buy a new un-fucked SanDisk 2GB

SCMG - You won't be inserting it into your modem. But if the card fits snuggly and it seems to fit right, then you're probably where you need to be.

For all of you - it may be easier to connect the camera directly to the computer to download the pictures. All cameras come with the appropriate cable to connect the camera to a USB port. All you need to do is make the connection and then put the camera into "review" mode to view the pictures and Windows should automatically see the camera and ask if you want to download the pictures off of it.

SOURCE: my memory stick is protected

On the memory stick there should be a little white slide tab. You move it up or down can't remember which way to protect your pics or unprotect your pics. The tab is on the side of the memory (usually) Hope this helps

I thought my camera was fine until I plugged it into te computer after taking pictures, the pictures were all corrupted and even after I put them on the computer I couldn't view them, it does say there is...

This usually due to the memory stick on the digital camera getting corrupted etc. You will have to re-format the memory stick, but will lose the photos on it. You can try backing up the photos from the memory stick to the PC and see if you are able to view them correctly. The best would be to get a new memory stick if this continues to happen. Let me know, how you come along.

Fuji FinePix Z10 pictures will not add to memory stick

After reading the manual, it seems if you delete any pictures directly from your computer with your memory stick loaded into the computer, then you corrupt the memory stick. I usually use a USB cord, but not this time. So with that said. I need to buy a new memory stick. I will only delete pics directly from the camera from now on. It is not a camera issue, more of a "not knowing" issue.

Can not read my sandisk memory card

Are you plugging camera into computer?
If so have you loaded camera software onto computer?

Hello, My mom cannot get her pictures from her computer back onto her memory stick. She sees the pictures as if they are going to the memory stick, but when she hits view on her camera, no...

The pictures have to be in the correct format.
On the computer, use the Tools - View menu to change the options to 'do not hide file extensions'
Then compare the file extension of a picture that does display on the camera with a picture that does not display on the camera.
Let us know what the extensions are.

e.g. camera extension pictures may have .raw and your pictures which don't work may be .bmp ???

Copying computer pix to memory stick

The resolution is probably incorrect for the camera LCD. try changing their size to a standard size like 640x480 with a resize program.

Memory stick

Have you actually loaded them to the computer then loaded them back onto the stick? Cameras cant read images very often when loaded back from the computer- because they changed image type from EXIF[camera] to JPEG normal computer image file. This should not prevent you getting the printed however.
