Hello, I had the same problem and resolved it using the following program, which you can download from softonic ( is free ) :

http://pc-inspector-smart-recovery.softonic.com/

Is easy to use, you connect your card to de pc (with a pc reader or the camera ), select the card's folder,the file type (jpg) and destination folder for recovering the pictures and finally press init. After that the program will detect that the card is broken and will ask you to do an intensive inspection, answer yes and you'll begin to see your pictures into the destination folder. The process take a time, but is satisfactory.

There is more programs to do his as "card recovery", but no free

I bought a TDK 2gb sd card today for my Kodak camera but it keeps telling me it is write protected. There is no switch for me to change and I'm desperate now to fix this problem.


Your SD card should have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

Keep getting clean the contact area of the card message, even after cleaning card...need to use camera...what to do?


The camera is not reading the card correctly, so it's giving that message. The fingers of the card and the contacts of the card inside the camera need to be cleaned, as a first step. You can use a qtip and alcohol to clean the fingers inside the camera- do not bend them or use a lot of force, but try get them as clean as you can. Hopefully, this will work. If it doesn't, there is a chance that the card is bad. Try another one that has worked, if you have one, then you will know if the card's bad or not. Other than trying those steps, service will be required. Make sure you get an estimate first, since the cost of repair can often exceed replacement value. Good luck, and hope the cleaning fixes the problem.

Kodak MD41 switching off as soon as switched on


I understand that you have checked the batteries and the cleaned the contacts. Eventhough here are the steps: 1. Clean the battery contacts. a. Remove the battery/batteries and the memory card from your camera, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth. b. Reinstall the battery/batteries into your camera. Please make sure that you are installing a fresh/ fully charged battery c. Without the memory card, turn your camera on. 2. Please test with the a different battery If you do not have access to another battery Try these steps instead: Please take the battery out of the camera. b. Insert the charger into the unit from the main socket and turn the camera on. If the camera works you will need to replace the battery. If you camera doesn?t switch on you will need to order a No power repair or a new cable.

Cannot install driver (code 10 )


don't use the camera to load the pictures. see if your printer or computer have an SD card reader or buy one for $10 plug it into your USB drive and access the pictures that way...


Once you plug in your SD card Via SD card reader go to my computer and open the drive with the SD card on it... Shouldn't be difficult to figure out. Cut or Copy all your pics and paste them into your My Pics folder or any other folder of your choosing. Enjoy your pics...

Card problem


Hey abbytho,
The most common reason for this message is the memory card or the internal memory is not formatted. If you don't know how to do this the directions should be on page 75 of your manual. If this doesn't work try cleaning the contact area on your xD card with a soft dry cloth, and if this doesn't work you should have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician. I have provided a link to your camera manual below.
