Try taking the card out of your camera and using a card reader. It should recognize the card as a drive. Then just drill into the folders until you find your pictures.

If for some reason that does not work, or the card reader shows nothing, there are programs available that might recover some or all of your data from the card. Most of these programs cost money, and i don't know of any free recovery software right off hand.

The following is just one example of data recover software that I am talking about. and you could search around for the product that is right for you, there are tons of software that will "in theory" recover your photos.

Memory card requires formatting and its a new card? never had a problem with changing memory card

All memory cards need formatting (initializing) before use. The camera writes a little program to it makes for a better working card. If you just stick it in and start taking pictures you will receive sloppy performance a slower download read errors and just **** performance. That's not to say it won't work. Another thing is after you have down loaded the pictures to a computer the card goes back into the camera and is formatted in the camera. Always format delete should only be used when you need space and is not the way you empty your card of pictures doing that just makes a mess out of the card and eventually it won't hold many pictures or just refuses at all.

I can't download my photos onto the computer from my samsung l310w camera. the memory card is sandisk SDHD card 8gb. the camera doesn't seem to be compatible with the card for some reason - when trying...

The problem could be that the computer will not read the large card, I know my two year old Acer will not read the 8 gig cards directly from a card reader. The solution may be to revert back to smaller cards.

Screen reading memory card not initialized

It sounds like your XD card is corrupted. How and why i couldn't tell you. You will need to get the pictures recovered from the card using a special software (image recovery software, can down load for free from some web sites, or some companies can try and do it for you) and then try and format the card in the camera. DO NOT FORMAT THE CARD BEFORE YOU RETRIVE YOUR IMAGES. If you do all traces of the images may be lost.

All the best and happy snapping.

  • Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from or
  • 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
  • 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  • 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  • 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
  • 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.
