This maybe a problem with the card formatting. if the picts are not important, format the card in the camera, if the camera doesn't offer a format option use the format utility included with your pc operating system

How can I access missing pictures on my memory card?


Take no more pics until you've recovered your photos, take the card out of the camera. This is to reduce the chance of you overwriting some of your "lost" photos. There are many good freeware photo recovery software options that may help you recover your photos. This article reviews and outlines several of the better ones.
Here's a YouTube video of your freeware options:

I have one more problem. The front of the camera is telling me that the internal memory is full. How do I clear out the internal memory?


Hi,

Please see below instruction on how to delete internal memory on your camera:

  • You needs\ to make sure that all the pictures that you want to keep either on the card or internal memory are copied on to your computer.
  • Next with the card in the camera you should be able to look at a picture and hit delete. When you do this it should give you an option to delete a picture or delete all. Deleting all will clear the card.
  • Next it should give you the option to look at and clear the internal memory and delete it and your done,
Note: you must removed the memory card before deleting the internal memory

The camera keeps saying "Memory


It's not the camera. I hope you have the original card if not no matter. I'm including a diagram that shows a locking switch on an SD card the black arrow points to the little switch in the unlock position. Now something else you will need to format the memory card to make it compatible to your camera. This function is in "set up" and you need to use the arrow keys to navigate to that function. Format the card and everyone will be happy again. Another thing each time you download pictures to your computer you need to format the memory card. What I expect you are doing or have been doing is deleting the pictures. This works but eventually it leaves the card full of holes and dirty and the camera can no longer write to it. I full expect that if you still have the original SD car that you can format it as well and it will work again. Now saying that because it's so dirty (with old deleted information not actual dirt) you may need to format that card a few times (maybe twice). This will solve your problem

I have a Cannon EOS Digital Rebel Xti. When I try taking a picture, I keep getting an error message indicating there is a problem with the CF Card. I have replaced the card several time but keep getting...


What you require is to format the Compact Flash Card. The CF card should be formatted when new and after every download. Format the card in the camera it is going to be used it. Constantly deleting pictures on the memory card will cause major corruptions and total failure. Formatting cleans the memory and allows the camera to communicate properly with the CF Card.
I going to give you several diagrams on where to go in your camera to format. these diagrams are screen shots right from your manual.

My computer can't access the pictures on my Panasonic Lumix DMC LZ3 anymore. It begins to download the pictures and then a message saying access denied comes up and the download is halted. I have tried...


Easiest answer is to take the memory card out of the camera and insert it into a card reader on the computer. This will bypass any problem caused by the camera settings.

Possible reason for "access denied"- you may have protected the pictures in the camera to prevent accidental deletion. This would give "access denied" if you were moving the pictures to the computer rather than copying them, because the move function deletes the originals on the camera after making a copy on the computer. Use the right mouse button to drag the pictures and you will get a dialog allowing you to choose "move" or "copy". I similar problem can happen if the memory card has its write protect switch on.

Canon A560 will not erase pictures


Two possible solutions.

1. Apple users have reported that the switch on the memory cards performs the file lock function in either extreme positions Lock/Unlock. In some cases they have achieved success in centering the Lock/Unlock switch allowing access to the read/write operation of the memory card

2. Connect to PC
Access drive via windows explorer
Right click on drive (MEMORY CARD)
Select properties
Confirm that RO (Read Only) is not selected.
Selected RO
Try reading card
Repeat properties un-select RO
Try deleting files

If not successful card is likely defective

Hope this helps?

When i try to ytyake a picture an error message appears memory card error


Is that exact what it says? I need more information. What kind of camera is it? I'll try to help with the little information I have:

I think your memory card is full and needs to be formatted. Select 'Menu' and look for the 'Format' option and select it. Before you select 'Yes' make sure you save any pictures that you might want to keep onto your computer. Because once the memory card is formatted you won't be able retrieve the pictures. It should ask you before formatting your memory card. While it's formatting make sure to keep the camera steady (if it's an older camera the slightest bump could disrupt the formatting process). This should take no more that a minute or two. When it's complete your memory card will be completely wiped clean. You'll now be able to take pictures. If the message appears again repeat the same process.

Note: When you 'Delete' a picture it doesn't completely leave your memory card. It will continue to take up space until you format your card.

I suggest formatting your memory card often (or you might miss out on a perfect photo opportunity and have to delete pictures you haven't put on your computer yet).

I hope this helped,

Owen

Fuji Finepix XD card was being used last night


When you recieve a "Card Error" or "Card Not Initialized" message, this indicates that your memory may be temporarily corrupted. This can be due to not formatting your memory card on a consistent basis. Most consumers will use the "delete all" feature and continue to take pictures. By doing this, the file format of the card may become unstable.

We recommend formatting your memory card in your camera after saving the images from your previous shooting session. Once a memory card is formatted, the images will not be recoverable.
