Problem with memory card

I am using Olympus 10 Mega Pixel Digital Camera. It was working absolutely fine and i took around 50 photographs and some movie clips. It was in perfect condition but when i took memory card and tried to copy the files in my laptop, it ask me to format the memory card. Surprisingly the memory card even did not worked in the camera even and when i switch on the camera, it asks me either to format or power off. This is purely the card problem and i want to copy the files of the card. Is there anyway that i can copy the files and then only format the card?

As long as the xD card was not formatted it is possible to recover the images that were accidently erased or unable to be retrieved and transferred. You can go to the following website link and download an image recovery software program that is free of charge.
http://www.z-a-recovery.com/
You want to download a program called Zero Assumption Recovery. It is a very simple program to use and people have had much success in recovering lost images from a bad memory card.

Data recovery is a booming industry, and many appropriate services and software can be found by searching regional phone and business directories or the Internet for terms such as "image recovery" or "data recovery".

What is the largest size photograph and longest distance the GE X550-BK 16 megapixels digital camera 15x optical 6x Digital can take a photograph


The largest size is 16 mega pixel. But they used to say it only could print up to a certain size. But in programs like Adobe Photosho, after you edited the image you can set the size. Then the program, will render the image to that size. Within limits off course. Don't try to make a 30 ft or 10 meter picture from a 1 mega pixel picture. I have printed A0 pictures from a 16 mega pixel camera and they look great.
The longest distance is as far as the camera can look. Most of the time our atmosphere is limiting the distance. And zooming in to the max, can give blurred pictures when you use a low shutter speed. Don't use the digital soon, because it is the same as cropping in Photoshop. When you did not use the digital zoom, you can reframe the picture and choose a better cut later. When you want to start photographing, this bridge camera could be great to start, but perhaps you also consider buying a cheap DSLR, or a mirror less system camera, because the bigger sensors in these cameras give better pictures when you have not the optimal light. When you want to use the full length of the lens, stay with this camera, because long lenses on a DSLR or system camera cost a fortune.

I have a insignia 7.0 mega pixel...I took 50 pics


I don't have your camera, and don't know what kind of memory card you have, but many memory cards have a "lock" switch right on the card, easy to flick by accident.

Why can't I take more than 3 pictures with internal memory? It then says internal memory is full.


The camera that you have only has 10 MB of internal memory , if you are taking photographs at 12 megapixels only 3 photographs would fit as each photograph would be around 3 MB each. I would suggest to buy an external memory card and take photographs on that. The internal memory is only for demoing and checking if the camera works and not for standard use. Buy a SD/SDHC card , they are very cheap nowadays and have immense capacity to hold lot more photographs.

I beleive your Memory Card is the problem. Take it out and leave it out when turning it on and see what it does. Mine was doing the same thing untill I did the above and it took a picture with internal memory just fine. If it works, then you need to format the memory card using your camera setup menu. When you turn the camera on with memory card installed quickly push the green play button and it should stay on for you to see the menu.

After taking about 15-20 pictures our camera shows card error message. We download the pics onto our computer and reformat as the camera says to do...but should the camera hold more pictures than that?


Hello,

It sounds like the card is damaged, it should take a lot more photos than that.

The C-50 takes an XD memory card. These are different sizes. For example a 256mb size will take hundreds of photographs.

The C-50 is quite old and there are now different types of XD cards. It might be best to get a 128mb XD card.

The Olympus website says:
---
Please contact Olympus authorized distributor or service center in your region for the information about
using xD-Picture Card 512MB, 1GB or 2GB
---
I hope this helps.

No.
Take the memory stick out of the camera then connect to the computer. You can then transfer the pictures from the camera to the computer.
Alternatively, use the camera's copy command to copy the pictures from the internal memory to the memory stick.

Took photos without memory card in - can I retrieve them?


Hi there
You should have a USB lead that goes from the camera to the PC, just connect them up and let the computer install the new hardware, once done if it doesn't autoplay just look in computer for "removable device" just double click on it to open the device and then copy the pics to the PC.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!

Camera not properly reading memory card


The problem stems from deleting some of the images from the PC. You need to copy all the files onto the PC, and delete all of them from the card on the camera. Then reformat the card on the camera. Then take 1 picture on the camera.

After you have just 1 new photo on the card, try copying the older files back onto the card in the same directory as the 1 new photo. This may work.

If it doesn't work, the problem may be with missing hidden thumbnail files. In that case you may not be able to get the photos to display on the camera again.
