One solution that has worked in the past is to clean the contacts in the camera. This can be done just by working the card in and out several times. Also take out the batteries and using cleaning alcohol on the card and working in and out of , but if you do this... allow the camera and card to air dry about 1 hour before using.

Used camera today without realizing photo chip was not in camera. How can I get these pics to print or email to friends? When chip is removed from camera, I am able to view on camera window.

Plug it to a computer and open its files(explore) look for the file where your photos were stored and move them to your laptop/computer or flash drive from there you can send it.

Took about 10 pictures today without realizing disc wasn't in camera. How can I get them on disc to print or send emails?

How do you normally download your pictures?

If you do it by connecting your camera to your computer, simply remove your memory card before making the connection. If you do it by putting your memory card into a card reader, first use the "Copy to Card" command in the playback menu to copy the pictures from the camera to the memory card.

My primos 46 camera says SD card full when it has never been used

If you have not used the camera in a long time try to reset it. If it was installed on your computer try to reinstall it. Sometimes that will work . I hope this helped a little.

D300 cards not accepted chr message

try the last card you had in it before this problem occurred sometime the processor in the camera doesn't realize the disk is gone sort of like your computer once it starts reading a disk and you remove it half way threw the load. Well usually before yu can go any further on the computer you must put the **** back in and close the program out. This issue is usually case on cameras when the disk is removed before the camera is turned off.

Memory Card is Full error message

The camera uses either SD or MMC cards, it is likely you bent or broke one or more of the connector pins in the camera..Bent pins usually break if you try to straighten them.
Repair costs will probably cost as much as a replacement new camera. On eBay you can buy a C330 for $10-

Transfer pictures to memory card

You should just transfer the pictures to your computer (Then back to the card if you want). I don't think there is a copy to card function. However, internal memory and card memory are separate, so there's no risk of overwriting them, either. Just don't delete them.

Put compact flash card in and camera went dead.

Take out the cf and see if your camera turns back on without it. If it does, then you have a bad card...replace it.

Flash not working

Hi there and welcome to FixYa.

Bad batteries can cause that. The flash module needs alot of power to charge. Your camera will still work, but without enough power to charge the flash module, it may take along time. Again.
Try fresh batteries.
