1. Do NOT click "Yes" to format this memory card in case that the formatting process makes things worse.
2. Do NOT attempt to write anything new on this memory card in case of any data loss.
3. Download a memory card photo recovery freeware to retrieve all your wanted photos back for free:
http://www.freeware-fix.blogspot.com/2013/03/memory-card-recovery.html
I believe this data recovery freeware can work perfectly on your memory card just in the same way as it completely retrieves all the deleted data of my friend off from his phone memory card. Just give it a shot!
Directly download this freeware here:
http://www.freeware-fix.blogspot.com/2013/02/photo-recovery.html
4. Do not save or back up all the restored data on the same memory card in case of any data loss.
5. After the data recovery process, simply format this memory card to see whether it can work functionally as before.
In the future, you should learn a lesson to be more careful about your data and always back it up.

Yes you will. There is a way to recover your photos first before formatting, but it will require the use of software and a card reader. There is plenty of freeware software to do this, and card readers are relatively inexpensive these day. Please see the following: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/recovering-those-accidentally-lost.html After you've recovered the photos, format the card in your camera to prevent this from happening again.

Took pictures with m dane-elec 8gb then it told e i need to format.will i lose all my pictures


Yes, formatting removes all the data. However, the photos might be on the camera's internal memory and not the SD card.

If possible, connect the camera to a computer and copy the photos onto the computer, then you can safely format the SD card.

If you cannot connect the camera to a computer, you will need to take out the SD, and verify that the pictures are still on the camera. If the photos are still on the camera, the photos are on the internal memory, in which case you can format the SD card as fat32 on your computer, and reinsert the card into the camera. If the photos are not on your camera after removing the SD card, then the pictures are on the SD card and you will need to have someone assist you further in extracting the photos.

My vivicam x024 won't turn on. how do i remove the memory card? will the photos still be on the card if I remove it?


The SD memory card slot in located on the side og your camera. Push the SD card and it will pop out.
The photos are stored on the SD memory and removing it from the camera will not lose the photos stored on this SD memory card.
Remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into anUSB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory cardinto the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as anUSB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open thefolder on the memory card and copy the photos to your computer.Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. Youcan copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off yourmemory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing anyprograms.

Card locked


There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". The most common cause is having the tiny slide switch on the side of the card in the wrong position. The second most common is trying to use a 4GB or higher SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. There are also other common causes if the above didn't help, with troubleshooting steps for this problem listed here. If these don't help, and you do end up having to format your card, see the recovery software, along with the corrupted card procedures in this blog article.

Hello,

you can not format your card without loosing data on it. The solution is to copy all the data to your computer, format the card (in your computer, still) and then copy the data back.

Hope this helps,

This sounds like your card has some type of error that is causing the images not to be seen. My suggestion is that you go to your local chain pharmacy (such as Walgreens, CVS, Duane Reade) and put your memory card into their photo kiosk machine to read the pictures. Hopefully their machine will be able to read the memory card and then you can have them copy your pictures to a CD/DVD. After this is done then you would be able to reformat the card and clear the error. If the card still does not read or work then it seems you will need to look into a service that does data recovery.

Good Luck,
Paul

Formatting required after taking photos on card and dont want to lose photos already on card


Did you use the camera to format the card before you shot any pictures. If not, the camera can't use the card and used its own memory to store the photos. Use the camera to format the card, then the camera can continue to shoot more photos and store them on the card. When you download them to the computer, remember to get the one from the camera too.

Problem with corrupted files


Dont panic... Just insert the memory stick in to a card reader and donot try to open it. but make sure that your memory stick gets detected.Then you can use any of the file recovery softwares to recover the photographs with out formating.I generally use the free app "PC file recovery". In case your memory stick is not detected in the first place, then There is no other option other than formatting. But the recovery software can recover 90% of the photos even after formatting.
If this doesnt work, post back. I will explain in more detail.

Memory card


Sounds like to me that the card may be corrupt or the data on it is. I would suggest taking the card to walmart or another store with a picture kiosk machine and try to copy the pictures to a CD then once that is done format the card in your camera.
