Confirm first whether the memory card is still good or bad by using a card reader, put the camera memory card into the card reader then connect it to your system, see whether the system will read your card, if the system doesn't read it, it simply implies that memory card is bad and you need to replace it with a genuine memory card, but if it works it implies that the card slot on the camera is bad. so, your either need to service your camera or you replace the memory card. Thanks

SOURCE: CAMERA READS -CARD ERROR-AFTER INSERTING A NEW MEMORY CARD

First, make sure that the new memory card does not have the protect tab in the lock position. The new card must be unlocked and formatted before your camera will be able to use it. Also, make sure that the size card that you have purchased has not over shot the ability of your camera. I think that a 2 GB card is as large as you can use. Just because the card fits into the slot does not mean that the camera will address it!

SOURCE: Not reading the memory card

You need to get rid of the pics in the internal memory. With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions. Now, your card should work properly.

Camera won't read memory card anymore but card works on other devices. It used to read before but suddenly doesn't I don't know why.. Camera is not broken and never been dropped,,


The only way to be sure the card is not damaged and the camera is, try to format the card (AFTER SAVING ALL PICTURES ON THE CARD FIRST) in the camera. Cameras can be very picky what format, or what device did the format.
It should be a second nature, to format a memory card every time it is used in an otter device and after you place it back in the camera.

Then a camera does not to be dropped to be broken. There are lots of other reasons it can become damaged. Like pressing in a memory card in, the wrong way around. Leaving in bad batteries, for a long time. Exposing it to extreme heat. (in summer in a car behind the windscreen) or extreme cold. Exposure to damp or water. and so on and so on.
I hope the formatting will bring relief.

Canon 40D unable to transfer files to my computer


ALTERNATE WAY TO TRANSFER PHOTOS AND VIDEOS TO A COMPUTER
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.

I bought a 4 gig SanDisk Adapter micro SD, micro SDHC. my Acer Aspire will not recognize the card, i've tried the switch both ways multiple times. how can i get my PC to recognize the card?


My reader will not read mine either. I use a usb key card reader. It used to read the regular old SD cards but the new HC card format wont work. This is due to UDF differences. You can try to reformat the card but then your camera or device may not recognize it anymore. good luck

Hi, got new kodak camera and 4gb memory sd inside. i only took 8 pictures so far and said internal memory full. i dont understand why? i want to keep 8 pictures and it should be plenty as using 4gb and...


4GB "SD" cards are almost always actually SDHC (high capacity) cards. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but they are slightly different electrically. Many cameras won't work with SDHC cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

So your camera is not able to use the 4GB card, and is ignoring it and using internal memory only. That memory is tiny and won't hold many pictures, and when it is full, the camera cannot work at all. You need to delete the pics in the internal memory and get a memory card your camera can understand (2GB or less).

I can take pictures just fine but when I push the review button on the camera, it statesno images to display. I cannot review any pics and cannot download into my laptop, HELP I am trying to sell my home...


if the display its ok ..I suspect something wrong with the internal memory ..try to remove the SD memory card and see if the pictures are actually stored on the card..and download directly from the card using a card reader ...if you only use the 32M internal memory and didnt expend on a Sd card ...probably its full or something wrong and do not store pictures anymore ..and thats why it doesnt sow'em anymore ...try to reset the camera to default setings Im not sure but all cameras have something lik ethis in menu...and try to see again the results...but if the camera works ok ..but cause a malfunction of software it do not sowa the pictures anymore ..the solution is to download from the SD mem card directly using a card reader ...most laptops have sd card reader ..and all picture printers read from the card too

Pictures stored on card, and unable to retreive them on camera


Have you tried accessing the pictures via a card reader connected to your PC. It is possible the card is damaged and you will not be able to recover your pics. But it is worth a try. If you do not have a card reader take the card to a camera shop and see if they can see and manipulate the pics to another card, then reformat the card and reinsert it to see if it then reads anmd writes.

I have the same camera and the same problem. Can't use SD cards anymore, only the obsolete Multimedia Cards that are extremedly hard to find on shops because SD cards are the substitute for them... hope you can find a Multimedia Card. At least mine works fine with them.
