My samsung S500 has suddenly stopped recognising the sd card

Try formatting the sd card IN the camera. Never format an SD card while it is in the computer.

When i transfer pohtos to computer no problem but when i transfer from computer to sd card camera wont read images

Hi jhrobertszxy,

In this case you need to make sure that the photos are copied in the same directory from which you transfer photos to your computer.

Also it could be the case in some cameras that when you rename the files in a specific format , only then the camera would read it , or discard it as just another image file which does not belong to the camera.

Try renaming the file in a format that your camera saves the files , usually.

Hope this helps..:) Let me know in case you have any queries.

There should be an internal transfer from memory to SD card on most camera but not all look under the main menu for the memory card where it tells you to format card and create folders it there should be a COPY option.

My camera says the card is locked. it won't let me take pictures. its a casio exilm model number ex-z70

SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

Turn the camera on and activate the menu. Look for a menu option similar to "Image Storage" and either choose the card or auto. Save your choice and exit the menu. You will most likely have to format the card. Again, activate the menu and navigate to the FORMAT command and format the card. The camera must format the card, not a computer. Now when you take photos, they will be saved to the card.

Kodak M883 camera and sdCard

Hey jennyhellrun,
I would not format your memory card if you want to save your images. One thing you could try is instead of transferring the images to your computer with your camera you could try using a memory card reader that connects to a USB port. If this doesn't work you could try going to the my computer menu while either the camera or the card reader is connected to your computer and right clicking on the icon for the camera or the reader and choose open. This should open all the files on the memory card and you could try copy and pasting all the files into a folder on your desktop. After you have successfully transferred your images to your computer then I would definitely format your memory card in your camera. I hope this helps!

Go Ahead. Use Us.

Check the card to make sure it isn't "locked". SD cards have a tiny switch on their side which write protects them. If the card is "locked", then the camera can't write to it. See for a picture of the locking mechanism. If this is not the problem, you can try reformatting the card. Although you can format it in your computer, it is much better to format it in the camera itself, since they are often finicky about the formatting details.

Can I save images I record using an uncompressed (TIFF) format?

Yes. When displayed, an uncompressed (TIFF) digital image is clearer and higher quality than a compressed (JPEG) image. You should remember, however, that it takes longer to save an uncompressed image, which means that the recording interval between images is longer. Recording Interval with JPEG Format (Compressed):?2 seconds (3072 x 2304, Normal) Recording Interval with TIFF Format (Uncompressed):?65 seconds (3072 x 2304, TIFF) • In the TIFF Mode, you cannot record until the save operation of the previous shot is complete. • The above times are based on save operations using a Panasonic 64MB SD memory card. • The above times are approximate and for reference only. They are not guaranteed. • The actual time required to store images depends on shooting conditions and the memory card you are using.
