Certainly sounds frustrating. Never-the-less, let's start with the most common and simple fix first. Let's look one more time for that lock tab. Hold your card where you can see the copper connections. Look or even feel along the right hand EDGE. You may feel a small gap or notch. At one end of that notch is the tab. Just slide it to the other end of the notch and you'll be set to go.

Removed the CF card
- Held down 'Menu' key until I could reset to factory default settings
- Popped in card
- Formatted it
- Restarted camera.
Well, it didn't work for me & not wanting to unscrew all the tiny screws and open up my camera
I just reformatted the card a 2nd time. This time it worked! What a relief!
Maybe that will help. Also, others have posted that they have had Canon fix this problem for free.

To adapt to your model camera -- first job is remove the SD card. next is resetting the camera. each model is different so you may have to read the manual for the procedure for this model. Some cameras require removal of the battery for several minutes then replacing it and turning the camera on. It is similar to rebooting a computer to reset everything to the factory defaults. Next reinsert the card and format it in the camera. Be aware that formatting the card will erase everything on it. If that is not acceptable, then buy a card reader and transfer everything on the card to your computer via the card reader before reformatting it in the camera.

    Reformat the card ( not delete the card) my sony camera
    allows this and this operation will only reformat the
    cards directory. This will allow the card to be recognized
    again.



    2. Download a program called "Photorescue" from the following:




    http://www.datarescue.com/photorescue/

    Try the demo version first to see if it will recover your
    photos. This version will not allow you to save the images
    though.
    new application to aid in the recovery process.



    Salvage recovers pictures from corrupt digital media. It costs $25
    USD and requires Mac OS 9 or later. You can try before you buy by
    downloading it from:

Take the camera to the local camera service/ repair center .they have this transferring software.they will just connect your camera to their software and give you all the required image.as they will save this images in the cd.and u can just install that cd on your pc and you will not loose any of that saved images in your camera.also they will empty the memory of your camera so you click more photos and save it in your camera for next time.the cost will be negligible plus the empty disc.which will cost you 0.15 dollars.

Format the memory card using the format command on the camera menu, this will also erase all pictures inside, but if card reader is not reading card anymore, then the memory card is faulty.

If the card reader does not recognise memory card, and the camera does not detect card either, and you cannot format the card, then the card is faulty.

In that case replace the memory card.

Make sure the memory card reader of your laptop is functional. Buy a card reader from the market. Insert the card in card reader and connect it to the laptop using the USB cable provided by the card reader and this way you can take backup of the pictures.

Thanks

Hi A cheap way to do it is go to a electronics store and purchase a mini usb to a regular usb cable. Once you attched the Usb cable to the computer. Then attached the other end to the camera. Your pc should detect it after that.

Take the backup of your internal memory and delete its contents. Once you have internal memory in your camera then you can save the images.

In settings you need to select save pictures in camera . There will be around 58 mb internal memory .

For cable you can get from the link below

Click this link


Regarding not recognizing in laptop . You need to check the settings in laptop .

    It is hardware fault in your camera . You need to take to service center to get it repaired .
    Else you need to open the camera and replace the card holder slot in your camera . But it is bit risky to do this action . After replacing the slot make sure the connections are proper .

    Best Buy has the USB Cable that you will need for this Camera. It is a Fire Wire Cable and will work just Fine and is Cheaper and better than Most other Cables.

    Travis Humphries Jan 27, 2009

    There is no Backup Memory on your Model and You could wind up Deleting the Pics that you want to Keep. You need to get the Cable for the Connection to you Laptop and Transfer them This way so that you can empty the Saved Files.

    Travis Humphries Jan 27, 2009

    This could be Caused by the Internal Memory Being Full and will not Accept another Card Or You may need to Clean the Connectors for the Memory Cards Inside the Camera.

Purchase a usb cable at pretty much any store or walmart and you should be able to download your pictures that way... take the camera with you to get the right cable.

How do I correct out of memory on my camera, I am unable to take photos on my Coolpix S8100.


It simply means your memory card is full. Either replace your memory card with a new one, or delete the images on the old one.

Internal memory card full


Hello, You need to either download the images to your PC or delete the images from the internal memory or you need to install a blank memory card in the slot and save images to that card.

I took pictures on my camera without a memory card can i still download my pictures


I'm glad to provide the steps to transfer images from Internal Memory of the Camera. When the camera does not have a memory card in it, the images are saved by default to the camera's internal memory, which holds different amounts of images based on how many megapixels are built into the internal memory and what image quality and compression are selected in the camera's menu. Once a memory\picture card is inserted in the camera, the camera then saves the photos to the memory\picture card and ignores the internal memory.

There are two ways to transfer the images from the internal memory.




  • To transfer photos to a computer from the internal memory using the USB cable, first remove the memory card from the camera. Then, when the camera is connected, the computer and software will only see what is in the internal memory and transfer those photos or videos. During the transfer process, the computer makes copies of the photos and videos-the original images remain in the internal memory. After the transfer is complete and the camera is safely disconnected from the computer, the contents of the internal memory can be deleted by using the MEMORY FORMAT function in the SETUP menu in the camera's menus.


  • The other way to transfer photos from the internal memory is to transfer them to the memory\picture card using the BACKUP function in the SETUP menu. If there is no memory\picture card in the camera, the BACKUP function is grayed-out. During BACKUP, copies of the images are transferred to the memory\picture card-the original images remain in the internal memory. After the BACKUP is complete, the internal memory can be cleared by removing the memory\picture card and formatting the internal memory using the MEMORY FORMAT function in the SETUP menu in the camera's menus.


Note: When the camera is connected to a computer using the USB cable with a memory\picture card in the memory\picture card slot, the computer will only see the contents of the memory\picture card.

Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require any additional help.

How to save a picture to a memory stick,,


Hi,

Even if the Memory Stick Duo is inserted in the Camera, the images will not be saved in the Memory Stick Duo until the capacity of the Internal Memory is full. To save the images in the Internal Memory to the Memory Stick Duo, select the EXPORT option from the Viewing Menu of the Camera. Touch the MENU icon when viewing images to select the IMPORT option.
There are two option in the Viewing Menu of the Camera (Export and Import). Export option is to save from Internal Memory to Memory Stick and Import is for saving from Memory Stick to the Internal Memory.
This Camera is having 4GB of Internal Memory, hence the images captured will get saved in the Internal Memory first and then to Memory Stick once the Internal Memory is full.

My kodak easyshare C813 is telling me that internal memoryis full. What do I do!


You have to upload your images from your camera to your computer and save and delete the pictures on your camera.
You can buy SD memory card which can store lot more images than the internal memory.
If you will be using the SD card, you have to select from the menu that you want the camera to write images on the external memory instead of the internal memory.
You can upload images on the camera to your computer through USB cable. The cable is cheap if you buy from eBay especially ones that are being sold from Hong Kong.
USB cable from Hong Kong worked well on my Kodak.

Internal Memory is full


Your camera should automatically recognise when a memory card is inserted and store pictures on to that rather than use the internal memory. The internal memory is only used when no card is inserted so possibly there is a fault with the card connections if it does not recognise when it is inserted.
To clear the internal memory have a look at my post on my tips page on my profile dealing with this.

Internal memory is full


Check the settings for the default storage.
On the camera press "Menu".

In the menu go to the camera settings symbol (camera and wrench).
Go to the "image storage". Is "internal" or "auto" selected?

Is internal selected copy the files to the memory card.
Leave the menu. Press "preview". You'll see only pic's from the internal memory.
Press "Menu" ... "Copy" and choose all.

After that go back to "image storage" and choose "Auto" and -if necessary- delete the files from the internal memory (remove the card before!)

Internal memory


When a memory card is inserted into the camera, it automatically switches over to saving the images to the card. You don't need to do anything else.
