The only way to be sure the card is not damaged and the camera is, try to format the card (AFTER SAVING ALL PICTURES ON THE CARD FIRST) in the camera. Cameras can be very picky what format, or what device did the format.
It should be a second nature, to format a memory card every time it is used in an otter device and after you place it back in the camera.

Then a camera does not to be dropped to be broken. There are lots of other reasons it can become damaged. Like pressing in a memory card in, the wrong way around. Leaving in bad batteries, for a long time. Exposing it to extreme heat. (in summer in a car behind the windscreen) or extreme cold. Exposure to damp or water. and so on and so on.
I hope the formatting will bring relief.

SOURCE: No memory card will work in my Coolpix camera

Nikon has tested the following cards and approved their use in the Coolpix 3200:

SD memory cards:
SanDisk 16/32/64/128/256MB
Panasonic 16/32/64/128/256/512
Toshiba 16/32/64/128/256MB

Other brands and capacities of cards may work, but Nikon cannot guarantee their operation. Check with the manufacturer of the third-party card for compatibility information. Nikon recommends keeping one of the approved cards available for troubleshooting.

Multi Media cards (MMC) are not recommended and should not be used.

It sounds like your Dazzle is not compatible with the sandisk. Maybe the Sandisk CF UltraII card have a new update software in it.

SOURCE: Camera won't read memory card

More than likely the problem with this is that when dropped it caused component damage or a cable was jogged loose. To fix this would mean to complete disassemble the camera, then to find the problem and reassemble the whole unit. This is not a job for the faint. It is an intense project and may be better to sell for parts on a site such as Ebay or have it repaired by Nikon. Nikon does have a trade up program which may be better as far as the expense involved.

Any time a digital camera is dropped to a hard surface or with any impact, the damage can be from nothing to what is described here.
Hope you do well with it.

My computer doesn't recognize my fujifilm finepix 98100 anymore.


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to transfer pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo management program such as Picasa.

While taking pictures my camera all of a sudden froze and said card error, tried putting memory card on computer but it won't read it have tried using recovery programs but it freezes them please help


If your memory card is 4GB or larger, AND if your computer is two or more years old, your computer's card reader might not be able to read the newer 4GB SDHC card. In that case, just purchase an inexpensive USB card reader from WMart, or Amazon (here's an example). Try a different card reader first to see if you can directly copy and paste the pictures from the card onto your hard drive. If the new card reader doesn't see the files, then try recovery software. Here's some freeware to try. If the software still doesn't see the card with the new card reader, you may next need to try the corrupted card procedures described at the bottom of this linked article.

I can not get our memory card to format. it says card error. we are using a microSDHC Ccard with adapter 4gb


Is the camera compatible with SDHC? If it can only handle SD memory cards this card is not readable in the device. It will show on the camera whether it is compatible with SDHC. If it doesn't have the logo, take it as the card won't work and you'll need to get a normal SD card.

There is a theoretical maximum of 2GB for SD memory cards, SDHC start at 4GB and go up to 32GB.

Simply put, if your camera is quite old, it won't support SDHC and therefore is limited to a maximum of 2GB memory card.

Why won't my Olympus sp-600UZ accept my memory card. It' keeps tell me error can't read card


Ok try this for you to determine if your memory card is defective or not, try to insert your card to a device that support the type of memory card you have. Then if it still doesn't work i assume your memory card is defective. But if the memory will work try to insert other memory card on your camera for you to determine if your camera memory slot has a problem.

My Power Shot SX130 IS wont turn on... I dont know why, yesterday was working and all the sudden today I tried to Power On and doesn't do anything. I changed the batteries .... HELP!



Things to check first for a camera that won't turn on are battery contact points, and micro switches that are located on the battery and memory card doors. Troubleshooting tips on other things that need to be checked may be seen here. These tips won't work for every case, but they're worth a try.

Use a card reader. Since your computer has a USB port, you can get a card reader that reads SDHC cards. This is exactly how I do it on my computer.

My HTC inspire all of a sudden won't read any of


Try using another SD card to see if that one will read. If so, there is a problem with your SD card.
But if that card is also unable to be read, and your phone is fully updated, there is a problem with the reader on your HTC handset. You can contact HTC for a repair or a replacement. You might even have some luck at the retailer where you originally bought your phone. It's a fairly new model.

Here's HTC's number:

After taking dozens of pics all day my camera all of a sudden won't take a pic, zoom, etc and after a short time it says card reader error.


The memory card may be full. Transfer the pictures from the camera as normal (or directed), and once sure they are on your computer or printed out, delete all the pictures (erase) from the memory card.

Try to take pictures again - if the error is still present (or you are unable to transfer the pictures to the computer) , there may be an issue with the card. You may not be able to use the card anymore - but before discarding, see if it works in another device or "stand alone memory card reader". If it works in either of those devices, there may be a problem with your camera. Try using another memory card to see if you get the same message when trying to take pictures with the new card installed. if you do, it looks more like a camera problem than a memory card problem. Hopefully, it's the memory - and not the camera.

Please rate this reply if helpful - good luck!

Not reading the memory card


You need to get rid of the pics in the internal memory. With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions. Now, your card should work properly.
