Question about Digital Camera Accessories

1 Answer

Memory stick format

I took a picture on my sony camera with low battery, and it turned off. So I charged it and turned it back on. The camera read, 'error formatting memory stick'. I can format it, but that will erase all my photos. I tried putting the memory card into my laptop, and hooking the camera up to the laptop, but neither have worked. I'd like to try and save the photos if possible.

When i take a picture on my camera 'FUJIFILM'


Most probably a faulty memory card. Take it out and take a test photo without it, then see if you can see the preview of what photo you took that is now stored in the built-in internal memory of your camera. If that works, then you need to replace your memory card. If even that doesn't work then your camera needs servicing.

I have my SanDisk plugged into a good USB port, however it wont remove my photos from my Sony and Lexar memory stick cards, it will remove them from my larger SanDisk cards such as my Toshiba? I took tons...


You need to use the supplied Sansa Media Converter program to convert your photos (and videos) to a format the Sansa can handle. If you don't have the SMC, you can download the Windows version from http://www.megaupload.com/?d=3IPZO6Q0

Deleted the images from memory card, how to recover it??


I had success with this memory card recovery tool
1. Do not save any new file to memory card.
2. Connect your card to computer. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in My Computer.
3. Download recovery software, recommended one is asoftech photo recovery (simply because i was using it and it worked)

4. Install and open the photo recovery program, select your memory drive, and click 'Start' button to start scanning process which will find your deleted photos.

Card error


Take it to a camera store and ask for a data recovery. Once the data has been recovered, format the card in the camera and you should be fine.

I own a sony cybershot dsc w35 when i switch on the screen displays "turn the power off and on again" help?


Hi. I had exactly the same problem with my Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W7. The problem started after while lense was fully open, the battery became 100% empty. I did not have access to new batteries and did not have my charger with me so I put the camera on my car seat and went home. After charging the batteries, I turned the camera Off and the lense retracted 100%. Later on I tried to transfer some pictures to my PC. After connecting the camera to my PC with the dial in the P position and lense fully open I turned the dial to play in order to transfer photos. After transferring the pictures, I turned the camera off and disconnected from the computer.

I turn the camera on to take new pictures next day, The lense would go up, and and turn with lense fully open. It would never close. The screen was black with a message "Turn the camera on and off again". I tried 30 times or more and the same thing would happen again.

Here is what I did to fix my camera and it has been working normally since then.

1- I cleaned around the outside of the lense with lent free cloth

2- I used dust OFF to get raid of the remaining small dust particles from around the lense.

3- While turning the camera off, I pushed (down, up and turn) the lense in (NOT TOO Hard) by my hand. If you push the lense too hard, you may damage the mechanicall moving parts of the lense.

4- After a few tries, the lense retracted 90% +. I then pushed the lense a little harder all the way in, the way it normall retracts. The lense cover also closed 100%.

5- I turned the Camera on and off a few times. It was opening and closing exactly the way it used to. My Cybershot has been working okay since then.

I read a lot and here is what cause my lense to malfunction.

While lense was fully open and battery died, some small particles got on the lense and prevented lense from fully opening or closing.

In summery: two things could have caused your camera lense to malfunction.

1- if you had dropped your camera hard, some mechanical parts may have got damaged or dislocated. In this case you have to open the lense and replace the damaged part, clean and put it back on the camera. This is too risky for most ordinary people. You would most likely make it WORST.

2- If you did not drop it, most likly, some how some small dust particles got on the outside of the lense and they prevent the lense or the lense cover from fully opening and closing. If this is your case, please follow exactly what I did and your camera would be back to normal.

GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My memory card locked! i need to know how to unlock it


There is a small switch at the base that needs to be moved to the "Unlocked" position. It's at the side of the card.

Does this camera store it's pictures on a memory card such as SD?

You can try this procedure:
Givens:
You have a card reader hooked to your windows machine that will read the card that was in the camera and
Your memory card is formatted in FAT or FAT32 (it probably was)
You have a Windows machine...

DO NOT TAKE ANY MORE PICTURES...

1. Download "freeundelete" from this location:
http://www.officerecovery.com/freeundelete/
2. Install the program.
3. Place memory card out of camera into computer, noting drive letter of the memory card.
4. Fire up the freeundelete software and point it at the drive letter of your memory card.
5. Recover what pictures you can.

Good luck.

SD memory card


You could take your camera's card to one of those stores that have the machines for printing digital pictures and check if it can find your images. Was it only the images from that particular shoot that you can't see? If you have no success, perhaps get your camera checked at a camera store, they have more expertise than an electronics store.
