Good CF cards rarely fail. Reset your camera using the combination of buttons set out in the manual. Then insert a card and format it. Now it should work. If not you may have a faulty camera which needs servicing. They will probably replace the compression unit - it's a common fault in D70s after a few years.

Always format the memory card on the camera, using the menu or shortcut key combination, not on the computer. Formatting from Windows is not the same thing.
Have you done a format from the camera itself?
Is the memory card write-protected accidentally?

If your photos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.After copying your photos to the computer, then you can delete the photos from the memory card using your computer.

Memory card is full and when I plug in the USB cord and turn on the camera I get a message that my device is not connected or is busy, or that it contains no pictures!!


Causes of memory card corruption
  • Turning off a camera before an image is completely written to the memory card.
  • Removing the memory card from a camera while an image is being written to the card.
  • Removing the card from a memory card reader while files are still being transferred to a computer.
  • Batteries conking out as files are being transfered directly from the camera to a computer. Note: always make sure you have fully charged batteries before transferring images.
  • Removing the card from a card reader while folders and files from the card are open on a computer.
  • Opening, deleting, renaming or moving files on the card while its contents are open on a computer.
  • Using a memory card which has not been formatted in the camera. Use the delete/erase function when needed, however a card should be regularly formatted.
  • Formatting a card in a computer instead of the camera.
  • Inserting a second memory card into a card reader before closing and removing the first when viewing images on the card from a computer.
  • Taking photos when camera batteries are nearly empty.
  • Taking photos too rapidly so the camera can not complete writing one image before starting the next.
  • Continually shooting and deleting, shooting and deleting images when the card is full.
  • Letting a memory card get too full before downloading the images to a computer or storage device. Cards that are too full may overwrite the card headers.
  • Using a memory card from one camera in a different camera without formatting it in the new camera first.

I accidently delete some photos from kodak easyshare c813 camera's memory card... Can I retrieve those?


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 asoftech photo recovery software

Install and open the photo recovery software, select the memory card, and click 'Start' button.

Please help me recover pictures deleted from SanDisk Memory Card!!


First take the memory card out of the camera. Pictures that have been deleted are probably still there, but will be overwritten if you take any more pictures on top of them.

Your camera is probably not able to undelete pictures, but there are programs for doing this on a computer. You can put the memory card into a card reader attached to a computer, and use an undelete program to recover the deleted files. Undelete programs are available for free download from the internet, try at www.download.com.

If the pictures are very important to you, you might want to seek help from an experienced person.

Camara won t delete photos


Is your memory card locked? It won't let you delete pictures if it is. Check the little switch on the side of the memory card and move it in the opposite direction and then see what happens. Good Luck.

Can't transfer photos


I suggest you get a memory card reader for your PC or Mac, sometimes, the built-in card reader or USB mass storage function of your camera bugs out and causes your computer to freeze up, this is due to the driver probably messing up.

Having a separate card reader for your cameras memory card will be useful and fast when making backups of your photos, and seldom causes hang-ups. A memory card reader easily attaches to your USB or firewire port too...

Using USB Plug, Transferred Photos to Computer and Deleted Them.. Says the pictures are still taking up room on memory card..


Try putting the card in the camera and in the menu, select 'FORMAT' this will totally wipe the memory card, ready for use. You will find plenty replacement cables on Ebay, for about £7.00-8.00
