Hello.I have a Praktica DCZ 3.5 digital camera.I am using a VIKING INTERWORKS SD 1GB Memory Card.I am using ULEAD PHOTO EXPLORER 8.0 SE BASIC software for transfering photos and videos between camera and computer/laptop which are both running Windows XP.The problem is that when the camera is connected up ready to transfer data the ULEAD software freezes on screen and a small window opens up with the word AUTOPLAY in it and an icon of a torch which then starts moving about.Any help would be welcomed as i have just came back from holiday/vacation and have a lot of family photos on the card.Thanks.

Re: Camera software not picking up memory card.
Remove all camera related software.
Restart the Computer.
Connect the camera
Go to My computer
Camera will appear as a new drive
Software with cameras is usually of doubtful value- best left in the box in my view
just let Windoze do the work

took the memory card out and then turn on the camera. Now see the busy keep coming or its gone. If not showing busy any more then format the memory card and then try to turn on the camera with inserting the memory card. Thanks.
The manufacturer's website does not indicate the type of cable needed.

You can take out the card from the camera, insert it into an SD card reader, and the reader's USB jack into the back of the computer. Your photos can be downloaded at Start/My Computer/ and click on the SD card volume (E: or D: etc ) and open any folders inside to see your photos, copy and paste them to your hard drive.
Alternately use picasa software or the irfaniew viewer from www.irfanview.com to import, view and edit these photos from the SD card.
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
If your camera uses and SD card. Take a look at the card. There will be a little switch on the side of the card. Move the switch to the unlocked postion, reinsert it in the camera and turn the camera on. It should fix your problem. Thanks for coming to FixYa.
You probably have a memory card in your camera.
Remove it and check for a nearly microscopic slide switch on one edge.
This is a 'protect tab' and will not allow you access to memory unless it is properly set.
