I have a panasonic lumix DMC-FS7. Used it for many years with 4GB SD card insitu. Recently took some precious photos and am trying to copy photos from camera to PC. When I plug the camera into my PC it...

If your photos and videos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos and to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.

S4100 Coolpix. memory messages when reviewing photos on SDHC

No, your camera cannot use SDHC cards. It's only a 4 megapixel camera so a 2GB SD card will hold hundreds of pics.

I keep geting MEMORY CARD ERROR on the lcd screen , im using a 4gb sd card and i had taken about 20 photos before this happened. have you any ideas

Hello thanks for using Fixya
  • First, if this is just happening after purchasing a new card, AND your camera is an older camera, I'm going to guess that you bought a new 4GB or larger SDHC card. Although the SDHC card looks exactly the same as a standard SD card, the format the card uses is very different. Unfortunately your older camera was likely designed before the SDHC format came out. Sorry, but a SDHC card may not work with your older camera (check your camera maker's website). You probably will need to use standard SD cards only (usually those 2GB or less). But if you REALLY need to use a 4GB card, do a Google search for 4GB SD "non HC", with the non HC in quotes. Believe Transcend makes one. Also consider 4GB MMC cards which may also work for your particular model camera. But be prepared to pay premium price as these large capacity "non HC" cards are very scarce.
  • If you've had the card for a while, and it just recently started to show "memory card error", ask yourself if you can ever remember formatting your card IN THE CAMERA. If not, we may have discovered the problem. An unformatted card will initially work fine in a camera, but eventually will corrupt with time, especially after many files have been saved and deleted. A card can also corrupt if camera power is interrupted during the write process (such as changing batteries or batteries dying while the card is still writing the last picture taken). Formatting the card in the camera will correct both these problems, BUT it will also erase all photos on the card.format the card in your camera to prevent this from happening again (dig out your instruction manual to figure out how). Stating this once again, formatting will also totally erase your card, so only do this after you've recovered and saved to your computer any important photos from the card.
  • If the above items didn't fix the problem, I know that you probably already have checked the card's slide switch, but I just want to first present this for others with the same problem who may not know of this switch.Check to make sure that you didn't accidentally place the tiny locking slide switch on the side of your SD card in the "locked" downward position. The correct "unlocked" position should be slid up toward the direction of the connectors. If you discover that the locking switch is missing or has broken off, proceed directly below

  • If none of the above seems to work, or if you've found that you've broken the locking tab on the card, one final thing to try before opening the camera is good old tape. Cut a tiny piece of clear cellophane tape (use scissors to trim it), and place it tightly over the slot where the locking switch is, or was. I can't stress it enough, keep the piece of tape small, you don't want to jam your card in the camera. Now slide the card into the camera. If you encounter any resistance, STOP, the tape is likely too thick or too much. But if not, proceed and see if that corrects the problem.

If you've come this far and you're still getting a card error, it may be time to consider opening the camera to force open this switch, or to inspect its wiring (not recommended unless you have some familiarity with electronics). In this case contact service provider.

I hope this solution will helpful for you Your Rating As Four Thumbs which are given below to this solution will appreciate me

I took photos in a larger canon camera with a 4g SD card, then tried to view in the same camera (as above) and 'error' came up, now the photos I took are gone even when I put SD card into laptop... Im...

I have had success with this... Download this camera photo recovery program called asoftech photo recovery

You have to use a card reader either on your computer or an external USB card reader. Put the card in the card reader, open the recovery program, then select the drive where files are deleted, then press "Start" and wait for it to do it's magic.

If needed, you may format (use quick format) the memory card and then use asoftech photo recovery to recover your files.
