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

While taking pictures my camera all of a sudden froze and said card error, tried putting memory card on computer but it won't read it have tried using recovery programs but it freezes them please help

If your memory card is 4GB or larger, AND if your computer is two or more years old, your computer's card reader might not be able to read the newer 4GB SDHC card. In that case, just purchase an inexpensive USB card reader from WMart, or Amazon (here's an example). Try a different card reader first to see if you can directly copy and paste the pictures from the card onto your hard drive. If the new card reader doesn't see the files, then try recovery software. Here's some freeware to try. If the software still doesn't see the card with the new card reader, you may next need to try the corrupted card procedures described at the bottom of this linked article.

Will not allow me to view pictures I just took

Try to recover what is left on the memory stick with TestDisk on a pc.
Note, download the windows version and not the dos/windows version, the
dos/windows version is for windows 3.11 and lower.

Try to fomat the card afterwards if this does'nt help at all try another card in
your camera, if the other card works replace your other card else get te camera autorized repairs man.

Coby DP-887 Digital Picture Frame: Unable to transfer pictures to internal memory

The Coby DP-887 does not have built in memory so one cannot "load" pictures onto it. It is a viewer in every sense of the word. If you load pictures on a flash drive or memoory stick and plug that into the Coby DP-887 then you'll be able to view pictures or video.
