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.

Get a card reader and use it to download to a folder you create on your desktop. If that doesn't get you all of your pics, take the card to a Walmart store and use their picture kiosk machines to print the pics or even make a CD of them. Once the pics are safe, you can format the card in the camera to get it erased and back to original condition.
1) Using new memory card. first connecting memory card to computer and format. and insert memory card to camera. making single shot. then connecting computer you see picture. Memory card formating in camera may be not working computer or other device.
Are you plugging your camera into the computer? If so, try this instead: a)Ensure the camera is off. b)Remove the memory card from the camera. c)Insert the memory card in a card reader (either part of your PC/laptop, or plugged into the PC's USB port d)The PC should see the memory card as a hard drive. Select my computer, open the "drive" that is your memory card, and then you should be able to drag & drop (or copy & paste) the video clips to the hard drive on your PC. e) Click on the "safely remove hardware" icon in your PC task tray. f) remove the memory card from the card reader.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The problem is with the memory card. It probably just shorted internally and is no longer useful. The amount of memory is not the problem, as I used a 4GB card for a long time and my card finally went bad. You will just have to get another memory card and MAYBE find someone to be able to retrieve your data.
