Hi there and welcome to Fixya.
You have to format it in the camera. So double check your menu. Not sure what camera you have, but there is usually what's called a low level format. It's found in the Setup menu. Turn the camera off, pull the card out, remove the batteries. Wait 5 minutes, then reinsert the batteries and the card. Turn on the camera and look for low level format in the Setup menu. That should work, and thanks for coming to FixYa. Let me know if you have any other problems.

My Scandisk Ultra 2GB shows pictures on laptop, yet not on camera...the pictures are on the card. I did download them on my computer, removed them from the card, zoomed, cropped etc on Windows, then...


It is possible that when you edited the pictures on your computer, that you might have changed the file format when you resaved them.

Check the names of your picture files on the computer and compares the endings (.JPG or .BMP or whatever) between new pictures that come directly from your camera and pictures that you have edited and resaved.

If the formats are different at all, then your camera will probably not be able to read them. Cameras usually save pictures in one specific format and can only read them if they are in exactly that format. A computer on the other hand is much more flexible and can usually read or save pictures in many different formats.

Your computer should give you the option of saving a picture file in a different format if you want. When you edit and save the pictures on your computer next time, use the SAVE AS feature, this should give you the option of changing the name of the file as well as the file extension from a drop down list. Then just try saving the picture files in different formats until you find the one that your camera can read. Or just look in your cameras Owner's Manual and find out exactly what format the pictures need to be in for the camera to recognize and display them from a memory card.

Good luck.

Sony memory stick PRO duo 4gb card says memory full when empty


I would suggest formating the memory card through the options on your camera. If you reformat the memory card and you still get the same error then you have a bad card. Just like anything else the cards will break down internally over time.

My micro sd wont read on my computer or phone & when i put it in the camera it says ''memory card error'' help!


1. If your Micro SD memory card can be detected on your computer, then try to completely format the card.

2. Goto Start >> My Computer >> Right-Click the memory card icon >> Format >> Uncheck the Quick Format option >> Start >> OK / Yes (confirm the request!).

3. If the memory card cannot be detected / readed by your PC, phone, and camera, then that card has become corrupt / unrepairable,

4. You should replace that memory card with a compatible one!

please rate this advice if it helps...tc! :)

Wont autorun! not formatted?


Yeah there is an issue with the format of the card, you would need to format the card before you use it ever in your camera or pc.. The thing is people think there already formated and the camera sotred the pics on it without a format or with a format of its own that is not recon. by the computer. Make sure you format using FAT and not NTFS or any other format to allevaite further issue's.. I hope this helps you and Thank you for using Fixya.com please rate this soution we do not get compensated for free questions however we look for good ratings..

Foramtting scandisk


If this memory card will be connected to a camera you can simply put the memory card to the camera and there you can format it using the camera's menu, you can also format this memory card using a card reader that will be connected to your computer, just put the memory to a card reader then connect it to the computer that way you can also format the memory card....

How do i format my scandisk


If you are only using the card in a PC then when you plug the card into pc,it shows as a drive under my computer,you rt on the drive and pick format, fat.

If you are using a sd card for anything else such as a phone, you format the card with the phone,or whatever devise it is being used in, and you DO NOT format the card with the PC.

Camera card not holding pics


Van D UK is right. It seems suspiciously like a memory card corruption problem - maybe caused by the combination of the red battery light coming on and the act of taking the picture.
If you remove the scandisk card (camera off) and use a card reader to view the contents on a computer, you maybe can see if the file structure on the scandisk makes sense.
Presumably you have the camera user manual. This might help.
There might be some info about how to set up a new scandisk card. You might be able to rescue all the photos you have already on the existing scandisk card. I suggest you rescue them as a priority if you can. I suggest too that, in future, you download as a matter of habit all your photos (regardless) onto a computer. Having rescued as much as you can you can either re-format the existing scandisk card using the camera (if you can) or buy yourself another scandisk card.
I have had similar problems with my Sony camera and card. Try and get the correct card for your camera. I got some cards simlar to a Sony card but in the end I could only use one of them in the camera. The other had to do duty as file storers/transferers.
