Saving to PC

When I try to save pictures from my memory card to my pc I am getting an error reading. It is saying that 'the memory cannot be "read"'. Do you know what is causing this? Do I have my camera on some strange setting by accident? Thanks for any help you can offer!

I would take them to a computer and copy them to it, and see if you can read them there. It may be that there's some bad sectors on the removable media (memory card), or the camera itself is having some issues reading it. Either way, if they are recoverable, your best bet is to move them to something that is more stable, and as soon as possible.

Once they are on the computer, try to open them in whatever software can do so. If they're a RAW camera format, you'll need a special codec (driver-sort of thing) or software to read them. If you're saving them as JPEG/JPG or another common file type, your computer should be able to open them natively.

If they are still unable to be opened (and give you errors) then either the memory card is bad, or something is wrong with the way the camera is saving the files. In either case, I would replace that memory card as soon as possible.

When i turn on my camera it says the memory card needs formatting i follow the instructions but it doesnt work and keeps saying to format the memory card. this happens over and over and i cannot take...


To understand the photo loss situation, consider a scenario: You format a memory card in Digital Camera, and start to capture some pictures. However, while capturing pictures, your camera shuts down due to low battery. Now, after recharging battery, when you try to access those photograph on the card, you receive the following error message on camera screen:

The Card requires formatting: Additionally, the camera is unable to capture any new photographs.

The main cause for the above error message is corruption of memory card due to conking of battery while a read/write operation was running.

These memory card needs to be formatted before you save any new pictures. It is always a good practice to take backup of card and format it before use. This enables you to fight with any damage done to the memory card and to erase the old data saved on the card. However, the probability of card getting corrupted again (after you have saved new data) still exists.

First try formating with an external SD Card reader connected at PC and test it.

I keep getting the error msg memory card cannont be read


Your camera is only supporting: SD/MMC up to 1 Gigabyte

The card that you currently have might be high speed. All should be sorted if you change the SD card to the supported MMC SD card up to 1G. There is a lever on the SD card this one might need to be changed.

The card that you currently have might be faulty. Please try another card.
You might also need to switch the camera over to saving pictures directly onto the SD card.1: Menu, Cam settings, Chose AUTO or SD card option Press OK

Note: If the SD card isn't in the camera or is unreadable the camera will automatically go back to saving you taken pictures on the internal memory.

I have a Kodak easyshare LS443 and when I put in a new picture memory card (bought two of them already), after it says 'format memory card' and I do, it just keeps saying 'reading memory card' and nothing...


Hello,

Make sure that the memory card you used is compatible w/ your camera. If same issue persists after using the compatible card, camera is unable to detect the memory card. Card compartment is defective. call 1.800.235.6325 for repair.


Thanks.

Error Saving Image


From HP's website:
Check this document:

Error saving image or Error saving video. The optional memory card that is installed was removed before the camera finished writing to the card or was half-locked.
  • Always wait until the Memory light stops blinking before removing the memory card from the camera.
  • With the camera turned off, remove the memory card and check to see if the locking tab on the edge of the card is fully in the unlocked position.


Also, check this link:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/genericDocument?cc=br&lc=en&docname=c00017052

You might just have to reformat your memory card.
