SOURCE: Memory Card Error

Chances are that the contacts in the card slot are either dirty or worn out. First thing I would try would be to try blow out the card slot. I suggest caned air, You could use a straw and Puffs of breath, but keep it dry. If that doesn’t work put a lint free cloth over a piece of cardboard about the same size as a memory stick. Be vary careful that it is not thicker then the memory stick. Dampen the end with Alcohol (Denatured Alcohol is best but standard rubbing alcohol might work in a pinch). I repeat, dampen with alcohol not dripping wet. Remove the battery just to be sure. Insert the swab into the card slot a half of a dozen times when you pull it out look to see if you see any residue on the swab. Hopefully you see dark stripes on the cloth. Let the camera sit with an empty slot (and no battery) for a hour before you try it again.

If all that fails the last chance (short of replacing the card reader) try to put some electrical tape on the memory stick on the side opposite from the gold contacts, be carful not to cover the contacts. Try one piece of type at a time and DON’T force the memory stick into the slot This will slightly increase the pressure on the contacts inside the card reader slot. If you have to resort to this be carful that the tape sticks completely and that it is neatly trimmed, you don’t want the type coming off inside the cameras. If this works you will need to add tape to all memory sticks used in this camera. I would NOT use any “taped” sticks in any other readers without removing the tape first.

SOURCE: Saving pictures

The camera has a very limited storage space on itself. It probably isnt saving the pictures on the card because the card is write protected (probably on accident)
just pull out the card and on it is a tiny little switch. just push that into the next position and it is no longer write protected. the write protection is there to prevent you from losing your photos, to put more photos on it you will have to deactive the protection with that switch, its usually white colored

By Mistake i happened to lose all data/pictures form my kodak Easyshare C143 and would like to recover them.Please help


All your pictures and data are saved on the memory card of your digital camera automatically.So you can recover pictures from memory card with data recovery software.I have a professional program on my computer that can recover data after deeply scanning your memory card to look for lost data. But you had better have stopped using the memory card of your camera. Because, once the pictures were overwritten by new ones,they are gone for good.By the way,you can download it and scan your memory card for free to preview whether your lost pictures can be recovered.Get it from http://www.any-data-recovery.com/product/datarecoverystandard.htm

My preview screen is blank when taking a picture with the Canon A550, but I can view pictures in the memory. How can I turn the preview screen back on?


Think that you might have accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on, just press the DISP button one more time.

Accidental delete of pictures, how to recover


First of all, do not save any new file to camera's memory card.

Take out memory card, and connect it to computer using a card reader. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in Windows Explorer.
Download this photo recovery software
http://www.asoftech.com/apr/
Install and open the photo recovery software, select the memory card, and click 'Start' button.

Can I retrieve deleted pictures


Yes, you can recover your deleted photos on your own. It's a just common situation that we lost data after accidental deleting.
Follow the below steps you can recover your deleted photos.
1. Stop taking new photos with this camera.
2. Download and install a recovery software. Last time I used Wondershare Photo Recovery to recover my photos (Shift+Del)
3. Connect your camera to your computer, then you will see a drive letter like H:
4.Select the drive letter and click Next to start automatic scanning.
5. Preview and save your recoverable photos
Notes:
You can preview your photos from Preview Thumbnail to check if all the photos you need are recoverable and evaluate the recovery quality before you buy.
Here is a guide on how to unerase deleted pictures from digital camera.

Cannot access pics


Once you took pictures without a memory card, all pictures taken will automatically be saved on the INTERNAL MEMORY of the camera.
When taking pictures with a memory card, all pictures are just saved on the memory card itself.
If you are seeing 100-757 on the LCD screen. It means that there are already 757 pictures taken from the first time you've used the camera.
It is possible that some of the pictures are in the internal memory and some are in the memory card.

STEPS to DOUBLE CHECK:
1) Remove memory card out of the camera
- Turn on camera
- View pictures on the internal memory
by just pressing on the PLAY mode button
(lowest of the 3 little buttons)
- Pictures seen are just the ones saved on the internal memory

2) Return memory card back in the camera
- Turn on camera
- View pictures on the internal memory
by just pressing on the PLAY mode button (
lowest of the 3 little buttons)
- Pictures seen are just the ones saved on the memory card itself

*** If you want to transfer pictures on the internal memory of the camera to your MEMORY CARD, you just have to follow the steps below:
- Make sure there is a memory card inside the camera
- Turn on camera
- Press on PLAY mode button to view pictures
- Press MENU/OK button
- Keep scrolling to the right until you see COPY TO CARD
- Select YES using the arrow keys
- Press MENU/OK to confirm
* When you've done these steps, all pictures from the INTERNAL MEMORY of the camera will be copied to your MEMORY CARD but it depends on the space left on your memory card

** If still, you could not view the pictures, it's possible that the pictures are really gone when you have transferred the previous pictures to your computer.

** Once you have transferred pictures to your PC, and you have deleted those on your camera, the FILE NAME of the pictures will not start from 100-001 again unless you have reset the file name on the settings of your camera.

In example, i already have 256 pictures on my camera so the filename reads 100-256 for the last picture taken. And then i decided to transfer those 256 pictures to my PC and i deleted those immediately after being transferred. So, as i took another picture, FILENAME will start with 100-257 if i have not reset
the FILE NAME settings to 100-001.

Hope i've helped you enough.
