How do i reset the formatting card on kodak m380 camera

Don't use the card, till you recovered the pictures on it.
Use an external memory card reader, connected to a computer and run a recover program.
On these sites you find software to recover files (pictures and more) from a "damaged" or formatted memory card or even from a hard drive.
free software to recover your files on a memory card: with free trail with free evaluation version
Some programs will show the deleted files, but only recover a few files. If you want to recover more files they want you to pay. If so, try another program on the list.

Can't show the photo when connected with computer.

First: don't do anything with your memory card till you have recovered the pictures, just remove the memory stick from the camera.
There are programs to recover pictures on a memory stick.
Use an external memory card reader, where your Memory stick fits in. Connect the reader to your computer and try one of the free programs on one of these sites to see if your pictures are still on the card and if they can be recovered.
Some free programmes, will show all pictures you can recover, but only allow you to recover a limited amount. Just try another program. I once got a free program, Recoverx, with a memory card I bought.

Recover deleted photos

Hello, Don't worry. You can rely on this photo recovery software (also recover audio and video files); it can help you recover your lost pictures from your Samsung Digital Camera (or SD card):
Photo Recovery for Windows Users
Photo Recovery for Mac Users
By the way: Before your pictures are retrieved, do not save more files to the device (or memory card) in case the original files (your pictures) are overwritten.
Best wishes!

How you get deleted photos

free software to recover your files on a memory card: with free trail with free evaluation version
Perhaps the free software shows you the files are still there, but to save them, you have to pay. Just try another link.
Never save to recovered files on the memory card itself, till all the pictures are recovered.
Keep the memory card locked till you have everything back.

Why does my camra say trail card lock on it and willnot take pictyres

Look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

My samsung es55 camera will not take a photo

The card can also read as 'locked' if there is no memory left on the card and/or if it is not designed for the camera you have. Try all tips above first and if the problem still exists, would recommend buying a new memory
card with more space such as a 4GB or more.

Hi - I am getting an error message when i switch on my Sony Cybershot dsc t9 saying access and then it flashes format error C13.01 - can you advise how to resolve?

It might be due to a bad contact of the placed memorycard.

1. Pull the memorycard out and in the camera several times and retry.
2. If not OK, format the card in the camera. If that does not work, format it in the computer.
3. Try another memorycard and recheck.

How do i unlock my memory card its not allowing me to take photos.

I am assuming that your camera uses and SD card to store the pictures.
If you remove the memory card from the camera, you should see a little slider on the side of the card that says "lock," it is easy to accidentally lock SD cards.
I have attached a picture to show you what a locked SD card looks like.\:codyrt.jpg
Here is another image showing the card in the unlocked position: codyrt_0.jpg
