    I got the pics off both cards. No luck. Can't refomat. Local camera store doesn't think the pins are bent, at least they don't look like they are. Any more ideas are appreciated before I send it back to Olympus. Only had the camera for 6 months.

Reformat the card but before doing that make sure to create a backup of all the files inside it.

    hmmm.. if the card works fine on a known good camera that means that something is really wrong with your camera..

    did you format the card using the known good camera or format it using PC.

    If it is still under warranty, I strongly suggest to send it back to have it check.

How do I get the SDGC 8GB memory card to work for my Nikon s4100 coolpix camera?


You may need to format the card prior to first use. This should be in the menu system somewhere. Your manual should point you in the right direction.

Card locked


So I got the same error message a few weeks ago. I bought a card reader and a software program that is supposed to recover lost/deleted/corrupt files but to no avail.

I have tried the SD card on my sister's camera (same Canon powershot) and it doesnt work. I have tried my sister's SD card on my camera and it does work so it is not my camera. It is clearly the SD card with an error.

What can i do, i cant lose these pics!!

Thanks anyone who might have an idea.

P.S. The SD card itself is UNLOCKED.

"Card error" usually means the camera wants you to format the card in the camera but you should have downloaded the contents to your computer first using a card reader if necessary. Your "friends" should have warned you about that. Formatting completely erases the card and optimizes it for the camera it was formatted in.

Memory card error


Zeru

I have a similar problem with one of my older memory cards. I have replaced it with a newer one. I don't have the problem any more. I keep the old card as an extra, knowing that it will only store a few photos.

The comment by the GUEST sounds like a different problem. That problem sounds like the "memory card switch" is locked. This is physical switch on the memory card itself, and will not allow writing to the card.

Nikon S1 memory problem


Just so you know, I have this problem also. Anyway, the only thing that works for me is to turn the camera on WITHOUT the card inserted, then insert the card. After this, it will let me take ONE photo, video, or noise clip before it gives me the error again (strangely enough, I just figured out this solution a couple hours ago as I was browsing a listing for a similarly infected camera on eBay).
For a permanent fix, the "cheap camera repair man" can repair both the menus and the error for 55 bucks on his website (DynamicCamera.com).

By the way, you only need one account, and one question.
