I suggest you get a memory card reader for your PC or Mac, sometimes, the built-in card reader or USB mass storage function of your camera bugs out and causes your computer to freeze up, this is due to the driver probably messing up.

Having a separate card reader for your cameras memory card will be useful and fast when making backups of your photos, and seldom causes hang-ups. A memory card reader easily attaches to your USB or firewire port too...

Hi why my omnia 1900 cannot take picture? its appear only loading?


Check the available free memory on phone & memory card. If the phone memory is almost full then your camera will not work. Check the option of saving the photo files in camera menu, which has to be memory card & not phone. Any photo files on phone shall be transferred to memory card. Delete unwanted messages to free up more memory. Please get back to me if the there is sufficient free memory in phone & still the problem remains.

My pictures are in the camara memory not on the sd card I did down load the pictures to my computer but whow do i transfer to a sd to be able to printe also do I need to buy adobe photoshop?


In the camera menu is an entry for "copy". This gives you the option to copy the internal memory to a memory card. You do not need to buy Photoshop unless you are an advanced photographer who spends 6 or 7 hours a day editing photos. Besides, it costs over $800. You could try Photoshop Elements...it's only $99. Or, you could try some less expensive or even free photo editing software. It all depends on how serious you want to get into photo editing.

The camera only holds one picture, and that only until you turn the power off. To take and store pictures, you need a memory card. The 8025 uses SD and SDHC cards up to 8GB in size. These cards are available at just about any department, electronics, and office-supply stores.

Causes of memory card corruption
  • Turning off a camera before an image is completely written to the memory card.
  • Removing the memory card from a camera while an image is being written to the card.
  • Removing the card from a memory card reader while files are still being transferred to a computer.
  • Batteries conking out as files are being transfered directly from the camera to a computer. Note: always make sure you have fully charged batteries before transferring images.
  • Removing the card from a card reader while folders and files from the card are open on a computer.
  • Opening, deleting, renaming or moving files on the card while its contents are open on a computer.
  • Using a memory card which has not been formatted in the camera. Use the delete/erase function when needed, however a card should be regularly formatted.
  • Formatting a card in a computer instead of the camera.
  • Inserting a second memory card into a card reader before closing and removing the first when viewing images on the card from a computer.
  • Taking photos when camera batteries are nearly empty.
  • Taking photos too rapidly so the camera can not complete writing one image before starting the next.
  • Continually shooting and deleting, shooting and deleting images when the card is full.
  • Letting a memory card get too full before downloading the images to a computer or storage device. Cards that are too full may overwrite the card headers.
  • Using a memory card from one camera in a different camera without formatting it in the new camera first.
