Google's Picasa program should be able to get those images for you, http://picasa.google.com/ (it won't be picky like Canon's Software).

If worst comes to worst:
1. Open My Computer
2. Right click on the memory card
3. From the popup menu, click "Search"
4. In the left hand pane, you should see something reading "What do you want to search for"
5. Below that, click the item that reads, "pictures, music, video"
6. Start the search
7. Once the search is finished If your pictures and video appear copy and paste everything to your desktop (or wherever you want the photos)

Additionally, once you get everything off the card you should probably format it using the camera (see your instructions manual) to make sure you don't get that error again

Image database error


The manual on page 126 says:
Image Database File error Cannot recover Import all of the images to the computer with "PMB", and format the memory card or the internal memory (page 97). To view the images again with the camera, export the imported images to the camera with "PMB".

If you used the card before in the same camera, it should be compatible. If you can't save the pictures normally, us an external card reader, to save or recover and save the pictures first. Then do a format in the card reader (FAT or FAT32) and when you reinsert the card in the camera, again format the card, this time in the camera. (You always should format in the camera, the first time you use a memory card in a camera, or after you had a failure tithe the memory card.

In the camera menu, you will find an entry for "copy" which gives you the option to copy the internal memory to a memory card. Once that is done, remove your card, go back into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory and promise yourself to never use it again. After that, your memory card should work properly in the camera.

I think the easiest thing to do is to put the memory card into a card reader on your computer, copy everything off of it that you want to keep (excluding the problem files) and then try to delete the problem files using your computer. If this does not work, I would reformat the memory card, as these file seem to be corrupted. I would also suggest getting a new memory card, because they do go bad, and could corrupt pictures and videos that are important to you.

When I connect my Canon A540 to the computer, I get a message that says: "An error has occurred when attempting to import. Either the sourceis unavailable or the destinatkon is full or read only.


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

Memory card has a problem after taking important pictures.. displays reinsert memory stick error and wont read on computer either... any idea if photos can be recovered?


Make sure the memory contacts show up a visible clarity. If there is no detection in any of the card readers, inthe camera and inthe PC, it seems likely that your card has some errors on it,
If the card is detecting the memory but is not showing any pictures, the use a file search in the search mode with the drive selected for pictures/images.
If not it will be best to have it checked with a photo studio to concur the findings since you have important images on it.

My samsung s630 says the memory is full. I cleared photos from the sd card and internal memory, but still can only take four pictures in the lowest quality and size setting.


Memory card might gone bad but can do this following troubleshooting step. Formatting a memory ** This is used for formatting the memory. If you run [Format] on the memory, all images, including the protected images, will be deleted. Be sure to download important images to your PC before formatting the memory. Sub menus
[No] : The memory will not be formatted. Press the menu button three times and the menu display will disappear.
[Yes] : A [Processing!] message appears and the memory will be formatted. If you run FORMAT in Play mode, a [No Image!] message will appear. 1d36119.png
Be sure to run [Format] on the following types of memory card.
- A new memory card, or an unformatted memory card
- A memory card that has a file this camera can't recognize or one that has been taken from another camera.
- Always format the memory card using this camera. If you insert a memory card that has been formatted using other cameras, memory card readers, or PCs, you will get a [Card Error!] message. ** There might be bad sectors on your memory card.
