There is a switch on the side of the SD card, slide to unlock position then go to the SETUP menu, format the card (before doing that, make sure you have saved all pictures from the SD card to your computer)

I don't have your camera, and don't know what kind of memory card you have, but many memory cards have a "lock" switch right on the card, easy to flick by accident.

Hello there, My samsung ES60 digital camera will not connect to my laptop, could you try and explain why this may be


SOME CAMERAS NEED TO HAVE THE RIGHT USB ADAPTER TO INSTALL YOUR PICTURES. YOU CAN BUY THE UNIVERSAL ADAPTERS PRETTY CHEAP AT ANY CVS, WALGREENS, WALMART ETC,.

I WOULD SUGGEST SAVING ALL YOUR PICTURES TO YOUR MEMORY CARD THEN TAKING YOUR MEMORY CARD OUT OF YOUR CAMERA AND SLIP IT INTO YOUR CARD READER SLOT ON YOUR COMPUTER...THE COMPUTER WILL ASK YOU WHERE YOU WHERE YOU WOULD LIKE TO SAVE YOUR PIC'S, THEN PICK WHAT FILE YOU WICH.

ANOTHER OPTION WOULD BE SAVE YOU PIC'S ON YOUR MEMORY CARD AND TAKE IT TO CVS AND SAVE ON A DISK, THEN INSTALL YOUR DISK INTO YOUR COMPUTER AND SAVE YOUR PIC'S THAT WAY. CVS HAS SPECIALS WEEKLY ON PICTURE'S IDEA'S AND IT IS A COST VERY LOW COST SAVING WAY OF SAVING YOU VALUABLE PIC'S , PLUS YOU CAN ADD MUSIC IF YOU WISH TO YOUR PIC'S SAVED ON A DISK. THE DISK IS PROVIDED BY CVS.

YOU JUST NEED TO MAKE SURE YOU SAVE YOUR PIC'S ON YOUR MEMORY CARD FIRST!

HOPE THIS HELPS,

My memory card says that it needs to be formatted


If you have a memory card reader built into the computer, printer or by itself insert the memory card and see if the pics come up to transfer over. Lots of stores like Walgreens/Rite Aid/Savon have print machines you can stick the mem card in to print pics and backup to CD/DVD for a few dollars.

If you save the pictures to the memory card instead of the internal memory there easy to get if something goes wrong with the camera.

Even Walgreens can retrieve pics off the memory card.

Memory card error is common problems in various sd cards and cf cards. I took a closer look at my little SD memory card. It has a sliding lock on it to protect data. Check to see if the card works when you slide that lock up or down. Read more about memory card:

Memory card formatting


Unfortunately, there is no way to format your card without losing any saved pictures. Sometimes, if you insert your card into other cameras or printing kiosks at walgreens or target, it will work. it's a long shot though. Chances are, you may have to lose your saved pictures :(
