Recovering data from a sd card

I have an sd card that is apparently damaged. When it is in my dIGITREX DSC-4500Z CAMERA, the camera will not come up and function. The Camera will work with out the card or with a new card. I put the sd card in my photo printer to try to access it through my computer. I received an error message stating that the card could not be accessed. when I right clicked the removable disk (F) icon in my computer and clicked properties it says the disk is full. None of the disk utilities on the tabs in the properties pop up box will initiate on removable disk (F). The problem apparently was a result of the battey compartment cover popping open while the camera was in use. Is there any hope of recovering any data from this sd card?

How do I recover deleted photos and movies from my sony dsc w-180? Is there a free software from sony?

I have had success with this camera recovery software... Download the program

You have to use a card reader either on your computer or an external USB card reader. Put the card in the card reader, open the recovery program, then select the drive where files are deleted, then press "Next" and wait for it to do it's magic.

When the camera is turned on, the viewer shows "card locked" and does not allow the camera to take pictures.

SD type cards have a little switch on the card that can write protect or "lock" it. Take the card out of the camera and check this switch. To unlock it, it should be moved towards the edge of the card which has the electrical contacts.

Dsc-3000 digtrex camera, does not operate with a 4GB SD card; the delayed start-up ends with ERROR in the middle of the screen

Check your manual to see if your camera is capable of using a 4GB SD card. (If it is 4GB, it's probably an SDHC card).

What is the maximum SD size that will work with the DSC-4500Z camera?

The manufacturer of your camera specifies SD card compatibility without providing a specific number. This is not uncommon however, as the maximum size for SD cards is 2 GB. Cards that have a larger capacity than 2 GB in the "SD" format are "SDHC". Read the label of these cards (that have a larger capacity than 2 GB) that *look* identical to SD cards, and you'll see that they are in fact SDHC types. The SDHC card can have a capacity of up to 32 GB. A device that is compatible with the SDHC specification should be able to read any SDHC card *and* any SD card as well; because the standard requires "backward compatibility" to the older SD standard. A device that accepts SD cards should be able to read any SD card, *but* if an SDHC card be introduced to it, it may provide unreliable results (from being able to access only 2 GB of the capacity or not recognizing the card at all). Make sure your pictures are safe and don't get lost; use only SD cards in this camera.

I hope this helps!

Green light turns on but no screen...please help thanks :)

I had this happen when my sd card was damaged when the battery compartment cover was bumped and opened when the camera was in the process of saving a picture. Remove your sd card and then see if you can bring the camera up and take a couple of pictures using the camera memory only. If you can do this, then buy a new sd card. What ever is on the damaged card may be lost
