Memory card showing 'no image' after trying to upload


Sounds like you didn't use the "safely remove hardware" function when you disconnected the USB cable. This can corrupt the card and even the camera. You could try using a separate card reader to download the pics from the card. If that works, and the pics are safely downloaded, then you should format the card in the camera to erase and optimize it. If it doesn't work, take the card to a Walmart that has a Kodak Picture Kiosk and it should be able to read your card. You can print the pics or even make a cd of them. Then, format the card in the camera.

When you disconnect from the computer, do you use the "safely remove hardware" icon at the bottom right of your screen or do you just yank out the cord? When you yank, most of the time you will corrupt the card and even the camera. You can try to download your pics from the card using a separate card reader or take it to a store like Walmart that has a Kodak picture kiosk and print your pics or even make a cd of them. Then, Check your owner's manual to learn how to reset the camera. After that, format the card in the camera.

I used my camera to take over 100 photos,I downloaded a pic from the Camera to the COMPUTER. In later that day I tried to used the camera and it's said file error.


If I understand, you downloaded 1 pic from a total of 100 pics. Did you then delete that 1 pic using the computer to do so instead of the camera? Or, did you yank out the USB cord without using the "safely remove hardware" icon at the bottom right of your computer screen? Either one of these can cause your problem.

Write Protect error and I think all my pics dissapeared!


If you are using an SD card, it could be possible that the Write Protect tab (the yellow tab on the top right) is in the 'lock' position. Slide it back and try again. If this does not work, make sure you are using the card and not the internal memory to store images.

Ativa memory card


The card is probably formatted with a FAT16 filesystem. Try reformatting the card with a FAT32 filesystem.

Can't download pics from camera


The simple answer is to use and independant card reader and not the camera- It at least will save battery drain.
Coming back to the problem
Check the camera - is it set to upload?
Now check the Computer
Start /Control Pane/ system/Hardware/Device Manager
How do the USB's look?
Any yellow error marks?
Click on the USB symbol/ Driver/ Reload.
