Connect it to your computer
Click start control panel Administrative tools Computer Management Disk Management right click on your drive select properties click tools you should see click check now click start two boxes Automatically fix files and scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors place then a tick in one box then select check now start then after its finished return and tick the other box you should not do anything while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may damage this drive. You might get best results ticking in one box the returning after it has finished then ticking the other box it might take some time depending on the of your disk but be patient. Hope it helps.

SOURCE: My 4GB PNY Optima sd card will not read

Try the 4GB card in some other reader, or your camera, to confirm that it does work.

It's possible that your card-reader will not support anything over 2GB.

Try putting a tiny piece of scotch tape over the lock slider. See if that works.

Hello

OK, if the memory card itself is locked, you might sometimes get this error code. All you need to do is to take out the memory card and switch the lever on the left side to the unlock.

If the error is still displayed after you did the above, you might want to try the card in another camera.

If the card works in another camera . the problem is with your card reader in your camera.

If you open you sd slot and look inside with a sharp light , you should be able to see on the left side of the slot there is a little copper or spring steel lever switch. This switch work as follows:

1. When no card is inserted / no write protection , the switch is open and thus the protection is off.
2. When locked card is inserted , the tab is depressed and tells the camera that the card is lock.

Contrary to popular belief ,the little tab on the sd card is not an electronic switch and does not physically influence the card operation itself. If you put a locked card into a camera without a sd lock switch , you would still be able to use the card normally.

It is incredible difficult to fix this switch because of space limitations in the sd card. Look into the sd slot and if you can see the switch , use a needle to pull the little tab down toward the base of the camera by about 2mm or until it works being careful not to bend it.

If this does not resolve your problem , there might be a short in the switch circuit and the camera will need to be disassembled to resolve this error. This should cost no more than $50.

Please feel free to contact me if you need further information

Kind regards

SOURCE: PNY optima sd card "card error"

You should try some photo recovery software to rescue the files on your camera card, here are some you may rely on. Both programs can also recover videos and music.
Photo Recovery Software (for Windows)
Mac Photo Recovery Software (for Mac OS X)

Be careful: Before your pictures are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the card in case the original files(your pictures) are overwritten.

PNY optima sdhchd 8gb won't read in my Kodak easy


What model Kodak EasyShare camera? Some of them only work with SD cards, not with SDHC cards. The same applies to kiosks. Make sure the slot is marked "SDHC' and not simply "SD".

I have inserted a new PNY optima SC HC memory card and window in camera says "memory card error". Does the canon not take this card?


Correct. The A510 uses SD cards, not SDHC cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work.

My Sanyo camera says my sd card it full when it absolutely is not. Ive even tried uploading pictures to my computer and it tells me there is an issue. It just suddenly did this one day and I think I've lost about 150 photos from Easter and other things that I can't get back and worse I can't take any pictures with my camera now.

Printer will not read card


Try to use your card in a clean computer and run a virus or malware test on it. Make sure that the card has no unwanted hidden folders that may contain virus files unblocking the card from being accessed by your printer.
