Question about Olympus Camedia C-750 Ultra Zoom Digital Camera

1 Answer

Format I don't know what happened. I introduced my memory card into a laptop to read all the pictures and I couldn't read them. Finally it said tje card needed to be formatted and it doesn't let me try another activity with the camera. It just gives me two options: shut down or format. What happened? I don't want to erase my pictures!

Can not view/open photos on my laptop.


please can you check the extension of the pictures you are trying to open
ex.. abc.img where the (.img) is the extension

the problem might just be that you do not have the program that opens the extension. then you can download a programme that open the extension of your pictures.

also check to make sure your camera or memory card is well connected to the pc.

or the pictures on the camera are currupt and thus might have lost tje pictures already. thn you will have to format the memory card and then take frash pictures for your viewing

Half of my pictures on my kodak m1033 are coming up as unrecognized file format! Ive never had this problem before! How do I recover my pictures!

So what kind of un-recognized format your photos turned into? Are they now RAW format? I guess yes because I met this kind of error on my Canon camera. In your case you should take a try this photo recovery software PhotoRetrieval. It should help you out. If you are Mac user, go to Photo Recovery for Mac.

Just connect your camera (memory card or stick etc) to the computer which has installed this program and start to recover. But just remember - DO NOT write anything back until you get the deleted data back. Best regards.

SD1200 IS Memory Card Error

Take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. Here's some freeware photo recovery software that should be what you're looking for.

You will need to use a flash card reader with this software. If you don't have one, get one, they're inexpensive.

Finally, I'd suspect the card before the camera. Think about purchasing a better quality card, they're relatively inexpensive these days. Also, first thing you should do with the new card is format it in your camera. You'll only need to do this once. If a card is not formatted when first purchased, it will work fine at first, but will eventually corrupt.

Memory card cannot read!!!

sometimes lapstops and PCS as well as Cameras can go out of line. That is the formatting in a particular PC may not be able to be read in another.
In you case this may not be so, as the card now cannot be seen. It would have been interesting to see if it could have read it before it was formatted by your laptop. Try another card in the camera first. If no other card can be read then the problem is on the read head of the camera.

This may be just dirt or damage, and it will have to be repaired. But try another card first as the card is cheaper than a repair.

Thanlks for using FIXYA

Wont take pictures

If every thing is working on the cam but the camera, and your cam has a built in memory, take the memory card out. Try using cam with just built in memory. Sometimes the cam wont format right with the memory card. Don't know why, but it just happens. If this works, you'll have to get another memory card. If the cam doesn't read the memory card, it will still work, but it won't take pictures.

When i turn the camera saids memory card requires formatting. then continues to say formatting will delete everything on memory card. i press continue and nothing happens. goes back to say memory...

Use a computer with memory card reader, and read the card using a computer.

If the computer says the same and does not read the card, then the pictures inside the card are usually lost.

If computer instead does read the card, then transfer all picture on computer using the memory card reader, and format the card using complete formatting.

If you need to use the camera tonight, then buy a spare memory card.
If the camera returns same error on different card, then you may have a faulty memory card slot, but that is quite uncommon.

Canon SD1000 keeps erasing pictures

Take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. Here's some freeware photo recovery software that should be what you're looking for:

You will need to use a flash card reader with this software. If you don't have one, get one, they're cheap:

Finally AFTER you've recovered your photos, consider formatting your card IN YOUR CAMERA (did you do this when you first got the card? if not, this is what eventually happens). Keep in mind formatting the card will also totally and permanently erase the card. Press menu, then select the tools menu, then scroll down to the selection stating your cards memory capacity and select it. Then follow the on-screen prompts for a "low-level" format. This should help prevent this from happening again in the future.

Memory card says it needs to be formatted but i have pics on it and I need them..please help I will be waiting!

I had the same problem with my 4Gb card that has 750 photos on it. I tried doing different things, however, it did not work. At last I took the card out and blew on its chips, gave it a good shake and put it back. Then, the miracle happened. It could read all my photos. I guess there was some dust that had accumulated on the chips at the back of the card. Hope it can help you, too.

Memory Card Error

try another laptop (friend's)..I suspect yours has a NTFS hard drive format while the card has a FAT type format. You can see which type by starting defrag and reading screen.
