Question about Cameras

1 Answer

I just got back from my first cruise and took so many pictures. I don't have a USB so I went to go place the memory card into my computer but it won't read the card. So when I put the memory card back into the camera it said Memory Card Format "Power Off" or "Format" but I know that if I format it all my pictures will be erased. Is there any other way of uploading my pictures without erasing them?

I know its not ideal but why dont you borrow a friends camera and usb lead, put your card into their camera and upload them onto your computer via their camera, at least then you can save your special pictures and rectify the problem later

ALTERNATE WAY TO TRANSFER PHOTOS AND VIDEOS TO A COMPUTER
If your photos and videos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer.

I can see all my pictures that I took on my camera but when I put my memory stick in the computer and at Walmart photo lab they are on my memory stick..why?


Trying taking the memory card to a computer and looking through it for the photos. Take them off and put on pc. Then format memory card. Place memory card back in camera and take a picture. Then put memory card back in pc and take original photos and drop into folder that has new picture you took. It should work by noe if not then get a new memory card. Then try again.

Take no more pics until you've recovered your photos, take the card out of the camera. This is to reduce the chance of you overwriting some of your "lost" photos. There are many good freeware photo recovery software options that may help you recover your photos. This article reviews and outlines several of the better ones. Now after you've recovered your photos, consider formatting the card in the camera to prevent this from happening again.

Well sometimes when you don't "eject" the memory card properly, the card can have registry errors which makes it corrupt and you can't view the card properly. My suggestion is to put it back in your computer and try to reformat the memory card. This can simply be done by right clicking the card in ""my computer" and choose reform.

My screen is broken and so i still took pictures with it, but I forgot to put the memory card so how to transfer all my pictures into my camera?


I think you mean you want to transfer pictures from the internal memory to the memory card. I don't know if there is a function to do this on your camera, but on the cameras I am familiar with, there is not.

However, if what you want to accomplish is to get your pictures from internal memory into your computer, there is a way. Simply remove the memory card from your camera before connecting the camera to your computer with the USB lead. The computer will then see the camera's internal memory instead of the card memory, and you can copy the pictures over.

If you have been accessing your pictures by removing the card from the camera and placing it in a card reader attached to your computer, then this won't work for pictures in the internal memory. You will need to use the other method, connecting the camera to the computer with the USB lead.

SanDisk Memory Card~Unrecognized file format


  1. 1 Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from Amazon.com or Buy.com
  2. 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
  3. 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  4. 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  5. 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
  6. 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.
