My card reader is erasing pictures before I can download them

My internal 9 in 1 card reader is erasing pictures from my CF card as soon as I put the card in the slot. I have successfully downloaded hundreds of photos prior to this, but a few days ago, this problem started. I did recently install a Seagate FreeAgent external drive that took over the drive letter that the CF card was using, but I renamed the drive letter on the Seagate to S:, but I am still having the problem with the card reader erasing pictures before download.

    back to normal.

Try go to device manager and delete the 9 in one card reader, then tell device manager to scan for new hardware, the 9 in 1 card reader should be re-detected, drivers should be re-installed and the reader assigned a new drive letter. Good luck!

I recently received a Canon Powershot S200 Digital Elph, and When I put the CF card into the slot, every time it is turned on it says CF error. Any way I can fix this?


Did you ever format the card in the camera before trying to use it? This will erase the card so download any pics first using a card reader if necessary. Formatting will get your card working.

Canon EOS 400D - Error message - There is a problem with your CF card- needs replacing. We have original card and also replaced with new card - message keeps appearing. What else could this mean?


Look inside the card compartment to check for broken or bent pins. Have you tried formatting the card in the camera? This will erase it so download any pictures first using a card reader if necessary.

I have taken 8 pictures with my camera and we had put in an 8gb memory card, but my camera says internal memory is full. this is a brand new camera, and I am learning about it, but why is the memory...


Apparently, you used the internal memory before putting in the memory card. Now the camera only wants to use the internal memory. Here's the fix...with no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Then, insert the memory card. If this is a new card, you will need to format it in the camera, too. If there are any pics on it, download them first using a card reader if necessary, because the card will be completely erased.

I used to be able to take 1000+ pictures on external memory card. Now I'm trying to take pictures and it will only allow me to take 9 pictures but on the camera memory. I have reset the camera to factory...


With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Then, insert your card and do the format thing again (This will erase your card so if there are pictures on it, download them first using a separate card reader).

Erasing the memory card;


All pictures in the internal memory and/or on the memory card can be erased at once. This is accomplished through either formatting or the "all-frame erase" function. I copied the following instructions from the advanced manual, which can be downloaded here: http://www.olympusamerica.com/files/d545zadvman.pdf. Adobe reader should open that file with no problem. If it doesn't, that's another issue altogether.

1. Enter playback mode by pressing the play button.
2. Press the OK MENU button.
3. Press the right arrow button (next to the lightning bolt) to access [MODE MENU]
4. Then, press the down arrow to access the [MEMORY(CARD)] tab.
5. Select the [ALL ERASE] function.
6. Select Yes and press OK MENU.

(You'll need to use the arrow buttons to navigate the menus. Please see pg 16 of the manual for instructions on how to do so.)

Note: when the memory card is in the camera, it will erase the pictures off the card. When the card is removed, the function above will erase the internal memory.

I took a picture wihtout a CF card in the camera


When you take pictures without the internal card , they get stored inside the camera internal memory (usually 8 or 16 MB only).

Connect the camera to a computer using a data cable, without putting any memory card inside the camera. The camera internal memory will be displayed as a new external usb disk on computer.

Internal memory??


Highly recommend that you consider using a card reader to download you pictures. You insert the camera's memory card into the reader, and then insert the reader into a USB port on your computer. The card then shows up as a hard drive so that you can simply copy/paste or drag your picture files onto your computer. Card readers are much more faster in downloading pics, do not require the use of your camera's batteries, and provide much more reliable downloading of the pictures (fewer errors). They're also VERY inexpensive these days. Here are some examples of CF card readers from Amazon:

Also, if the card has somehow become corrupted, take no more pics until you've recovered the photos. Take the card out of the camera. Here's some freeware photo recovery software that should be what you're looking for:
http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/recovering-those-accidentally-lost.html

You will also need to use a card reader with this software. Finally AFTER you've recovered your photos, recommend formatting the card IN YOUR CAMERA to prevent this from happening again. Note that formatting will totally erase your card. Turn on the camera, press the menu button, select the tools menu. Go down to the selection that states your CF card's memory capacity and select it. Then follow the formatting prompts.

Downloading photos from my Canon A95


Sounds like the card has become corrupted. Take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. Here's some freeware photo recovery software that should be what you're looking for:

http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/recovering-those-accidentally-lost.html

You will need to use a flash card reader with this software. Also, highly recommend that you consider using a card reader to download your pictures in the future. You insert the camera's memory card into the reader, and then insert the reader into a USB port on your computer. The card then shows up as a hard drive so that you can simply copy/paste or drag your picture files onto your computer. Card readers are much more faster in downloading pics, do not require the use of your camera's batteries, and provide much more reliable downloading of the pictures (fewer errors). They're also VERY inexpensive these days. Here are some examples from Amazon for your CF card:

And finally, recommend formatting your card in your camera only AFTER you've recovered your photos (this will erase the card). This should fix the card for future use. Turn on the camera, select menu, then select the tools menu. Scroll down to the selection outlining your's cards memory capacity and select it. Then follow the formatting prompts.
