Memory Card Error

I had inserted the memory card into the laptop and viewed my pictures, and safely removed my hardware when finished. When I put it back into my camera, it says Write Protect, when in camera mode. When in Play mode it says Card Error. I never saved my pictures to the lap top. I insert the card back into the laptop and I can see blank thumbnails, but no preview available (even in other programs).I think my pictures are corrupt. How do I retrieve those images? How do I reformat my card so I can use it again? How do I keep this from happening everytime I view on the laptop? (this is the second time I had to reformat)

I also put my memory card into my computer, and got the same "write project" error message when i put the memory card back in my camera. In order to get rid of the error, you need to go to the menu, then setup, and then format, and click yes. This will erase all your pictures though, so make sure to figure out your other problem first before doing this.

Try another laptop (friend's)..I suspect yours has a NTFS hard drive format while the card has a FAT type format. You can see which type by starting defrag and reading screen.

    well, have tried my suggestion yet? Also, you can run Windows disk check on the card to try and eliminate errors.

I took a bunch of pictures and went to put them on my computer, when I inserted the memory stick into the computer it only showed half the pictures on the memory stick, so I put it back in my IR 500 and...


Removing the memory stick without using the "safely remove hardware" function is probably the cause cause of your problem. The pics are still there but you need a 3rd party machine to read them. Go to a Walmart and plug the card into one of their picture making machines. You can print the pics or even make a CD of them. Once you have them safely in your possession, format the card in the camera and in the future, don't forget to use the "safely remove hardware" function on your computer.

Well my camera is a Casio Exilim Anti-shake DSP. When i put all my photos onto my laptop i tried to put them back on the card. But after i tried i turned on the camera and it says "MEMORY FULL"...


Okay, you put your pictures on the computer hard drive but, the pictures will still be on the card until you format the memory card in the camera. So then you loaded the pictures back on the card so in fact you have two sets of the same pictures on the memory card maxing out the cared capacity. I doubt they will show on the camera because there will be different file formats one from the camera and another from the computer. So to clean things up first make sure you have your pictures on the computer hard drive then safely remove hardware or eject the camera memory card and unplug the cable. then go into your camera settings looking for "Format" might also say initialize but format is pretty well universal anyway find format and follow the screen. Formatting cleans off the memory card and reformat the card back to new to receive more pictures.

I cannot copy the pictures from my Sony Cybershot to my pc; A few days ago my pc crashed and I lost the CD-ROM to install picture package menu. what do to now ?


Hello, you can recover the pictures directly from your camera without needing cables if you have a card reader.

If you do have a card reader, then:
  1. Open your camera's memory slot
  2. Remove memory card
  3. Insert memory card in your PC or laptop's memory card reader.
  4. The card will then appear on My PC exactly like any pendrive.
  5. After you're done copying photos, click over the system tray's "Safely remove Hardware" icon, and select the memory card.
  6. Wait until Windows prompts you that it's safe to remove the hardware.
  7. Put the memory card back on the camera.
Also, from here you can get the drivers for your camera

And, from here, you can order a new CD from Sony, but they will charge you for it.

I have Sony cybershot 12.1 megapixel camera with a song 4GB memory card. Everything was working fine untill I tried to insert it in the computer and it did not register it was indersted. I then tried...


Your pics are still there. When you pulled out the card from the computer, I'll bet you didn't use the "safely remove hardware" function. That's why your camera now doesn't recognize the card. You could try using a card reader or you could take the card to a store like Walmart and use their picture machines that make pictures while you wait.

I have a Toshiba 8 GIG memory card. I used it


When you removed the card from the computer, did you remember to use the "safely remove hardware" procedure? Also, you should never wait until your card is full before downloading...you run the risk of the card becoming corrupted. Your options now...1. Get a separate card reader and see if you can download your pics with it.2. If not, take the card to a store like Walmart that has a Kodak Picture kiosk machine. Insert your card and you should be able to see all your pics. From there, you can make a cd of them. Then, format your card in your camera to return it to factory specs.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5 does not recognise my memory card


1. Go into the menu and find "reset"...follow the on-screen instructions. 2. With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the instructions.. 3. After downloading any pictures from the card, insert it into the camera and do the "format" thing again. everything should work now. Remember, never use the computer to format or erase your card...always use the camera. Also, when removing the card from the computer, always use "safely remove hardware" icon at the bottom right of your computer screen.

I want to know what i need to do next after i have put my sd card into my computer, a green light comes on, and i want to know how to get my pictures to come up on my computer, so i can do any adjustments...


1. When you insert a memory card into your computer, it'll be detected automatically and an "AutoPlay" dialog box will ask you to what to do ?

2. Select "Open folder to view files" option from the list.

3. Now, you can easily view the files in the memory card by double-clicking them.

4. If the "AutoPlay" dialog box doesn't appear, goto Start >> My Computer. Here you can view the memory card as a "Removable Drive" with some name!

5. Double-click the memory card's icon to view the files inside it.

6. After your job is complete, you can remove the memory card by just clicking the USB device icon at the right side of Task Bar (Notification Area)!

7. On click, a single option pop-up will appear with "Safely Remove USB Mass Storage Device" message!

8. Just click on that pop-up. A "Safe To Remove" message box will appear.

9. Click on OK button, and manually remove your memory card!

please rate this advice if it helps...tc! :)
