Only if this totally annoying to you. It is fairly inexpensive. Not worth repairing....
You could use a memory card dock (USB to your PC) to download and look at the pics.

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.

Try to retrieve the files from the memory into your computer, if you can't see the pictures after they are moved, they might have been corrupted while you were using the camera.
In theory, you might have placed the camera near a strong magnetic field, like a speaker. This could explain the files being corrupted if that's the problem you have.

On my DMC-TZ8 the screen says "this memory card is write -protected " how do I solve this problem , only had camera two months I have took memory card out all seems alright THANKYOU


Your memory card is either write protected or corrupted.
  • If it's write protected, it can be very easily fixed.
  1. Turn off cam.
  2. Take out the mem. card. (it's probably located near the battery. press down on it and release it. Then it will pop out.)
  3. Slide the small switch on the side of the card to the position marked with an unlocked padlock.
  4. Put card back in and turn on cam.
  • If that doesn't seem to be the problem, then it's likely that the memory card is corrupted. This is common with Flash memory that has been used extensively for a long time and this problem is likely not caused by any fault in the camera. You might not be able to access any pictures that were stored on your cam, but you can try using a data recovery software like Recuva if you want to recover pictures ( click name to download ). If you want to use the card again, You can try formatting it (differs from cam to cam, check instructions manual for specific instructions) If this doesn't work, You will have to buy a new card. Make sure you buy a good brand like Lexar or SanDisk.

That's it. hope that helped.

Corrupted data


hi,
If there is corrupted data in your Mp3 player, please reformat your player your factory settings(it depends upon the manufacturer, mostly use the reverse side of the needle to press in the pinhole that is available somewhere in your player). This action deletes all the files in your player and all the settings are reset. Your player will be now like a new one. You can upload music again and use it as normal one. Thanks for choosing fix-ya!. Please rate my solution as helpful.

My psp said corruted data after downloading a game from btjunkes why wont it work and how can i get it work


If the data is corrupted there is no way to repair it. Hopefully you will be able to delete the corrupted game and try redownloading it. If that does not work contact btjunkies to see what they can do for you. perhaps a refund?

Good Luck.

Cant read the xd card


Try http://www.spartanphotocenter.com/digital-camera-sensor-cleaning.html the card needs a data recovery (using special recovery software) and then a reformat. That may get most of your pictures back, but there will most likely be some (can't say how many or why) that will be corrupt and not usable. If the corrution is really bad no pictures will be available. No way to know except by attemoting a data recovery.

Recover pics from formatted memory card


The Answer is Yes. Deleting or formatting won't make the data in your memory card erased permanently. These data are just not accessible at the short moment. If you deleted important data in your hard drive, they are not deleted as a matter of fact just the index entry or FAT or NTFS marked the data as free space for new data to save. If you formatted the memory card, you simply rewrited or updated the FAT table or NTFS table which manage all the data storage process.

The best way to retrieve your deleted pics is to use some picture recovery programs. Recommended one is Asoftech Photo Recovery program. Here is the steps you may refer while retrieve your deleted pics from your camera memory card.

1. Download and install this photo recovery program on your computer. http://www.asoftech.com/apr/
2. With your camera memory card inserted, Under "My Computer", note the drive letter assigned to your camera's memory card (usually G: or H:).
3. Start the program and select the drive letter that assigned to the memory, click "Start".
4. Now the scanning process will start automatically to look for the deleted pictures. You will then get a list of all recoverable ones.
5. Select the pictures you want and click "Recover" and you can get back deleted pictures from your camera successfully.

My Nikon Coolpix 2100 Lexar starter memory card has become unreadable


It sounds like your Dazzle is not compatible with the sandisk. Maybe the Sandisk CF UltraII card have a new update software in it.

Camera freezing


try a new memory card. also try to reformat the memory card. dont take images you care about until resolved.
i would try to remove the battery for about 10 seconds, and then reinstall, then reformat the memory card. if you still have the same issues, replace the memory card. it that does not cure it, you have a warranty repair to manage.
good luck
