Please format memory card in camera by going in to Menu format option. Memory card seems imbalanced and format will fix its problem.

I HAVE A NEW SAMSUNG NX CAMERA IT SAYS MEMORY FULL I ONY TOOK ONE PIC


Did you buy and insert a memory card?
Is the memory card unlocked?
The internal memory is very small and not fit to shoot your pictures.
If you did put in a new memory card, please goto the setup menu and format the card.

Yesterday I transferred all my pics from the xd picture card to my computer, nad now I keep getting write error message when I take a pic. The manual says that the card is write protected! How did this...


I don't think the XD card has a lock switch (some do) but what I fully expect is that the memory card requires your to format it to the camera you are using it in. You didn't tell me what camera make or model But you did say you have a manual, look for formatting or it may be called initialize. Formatting clean the surface of the memory card and makes it ready to accept new pictures again.

If the "other" pictures have been taken with a differed camera your camera will not read the memory card until it is formatted to your camera. Formatting will erase all pictures on the card. You need to download the pictures to the computer. Format the memory card and then you will be able to transfer pictures from the internal memory to the memory card then to print or to the computer. You should format the memory card after each time you download the pictures to the computer.

First of all, do you know you're supposed to download the pics from your full card to your computer and then format the card in the camera? Keeping them on the card is risky since the cards are not made for long term storage. The pics can degrade over time. Formatting completely erases a card and that's what happened with your new card. All new cards should be formatted in the camera before using....that's what your camera was trying to tell you.

Why are the pic small when viewing them on the computer. They are presented in a img.jpg format rather than simpy jpg. Is there a way to configure my camera Canon Power shot A550 to take pics only in a JPG...


img.jpg just means a j-peg image...it's normal. If the pics are small, maybe you have the picture quality on the camera set to a low setting and less than the maximum megapixels.

Olympus FE 230 -Not able to retrieve pictures, only format option


You may try some photo recovery software to rescue the files on your Olympus camera, here are some for your options.

Photo Recovery (for Windows)
Photo Recovery for Mac

Be careful: Before your pictures are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the memory card in case the original files(your pictures) are overwritten.

Is it possible to recover my formatted pictures on my XD card


Deleting or formatting won't make the data in xd card erased permanently.

Those deleted data is still stored on the xd card, it's just invisible or inaccessible. Only the FAT or NFTS table is erased (the information about where those data were saved), but the real data are still intact there in sectors of xd card .

So as long as those data are not overwritten by new data, it's highly possible to recover them. And the MOST Effective way is to rely on some format recovery programs.

Try asoftech data recovery program, which can recover data after deeply scanning your xd card drive to look for lost data you accidentally deleted or formatted.

Check memory card from computer with card reader.
If that doesn`t help.
Try formatting memory card from camera or from computer (it will destroy data on card).
Most likely your pictures are alredy lost.
