Re: The camera could not read the Memory Card.

This is a main board or card holder fault.
Check out the Nikon support site- I may be a known problem and can be dealt with by replacing the camera

Why my sony steadyshot camera dsc-w180 memory is not recognise to my laptop when inserted, but it support when i inserted to my camera, i want to transfer file to my laptop but no way please give me y

It is not only the card and computer or camera and computer that is needed. To interface anything to a computer you need a program. Most of the time called a driver. When you put a card reader to the computer, or when there is a card reader in the computer you need a driver that came with the card reader or the computer. To read from a camera, you need a driver that came with the camera. More and more, the interfacing of cameras becomes standard, so if you ever installed a camera driver it could be other cameras can communicate with your computer. But no guaranty it always work.
With the correct driver, your camera acts like an external memory to the computer and the computer can read the pictures on the memory card in the camera.
So if you use a card reader or a camera on the computer always meme sure you have installed the correct software that came with the apparatus.

How can i download pictures from my camera using the memory card


You can download pictures from your camera to your computer by using a memory card reader. (You can use your computer's built-in memory card reader, if it has one, or you can purchase an external memory card reader as shown in the attached image).

To do this, kindly remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into a card reader. Connect the card reader to the USB port of your PC (if you are using an external card reader).

Now, the memory card will be shown as a "Removable disk" in "My Computer". You can browse the images and download the pictures to your computer.

Hope this solves your problem. Thanks for using FixYa.

Sd card cannot be read & internal memory of camera cannot be read

Which Kodak camera model?
It may not support a large SD (SDHC) memory card.
Remove the card and remove the batteries.
Turn ON the camera (I know, no batteries) for one minute.
Turn OFF camera and install batteries.
Do not insert the memory card.
Does the internal memory work?
If so, insert memory card.

If it's ok to format the card, do so.
If not, then use a USB adapter and copy the memory card to your [My Pictures] folder.
Format memory card.

What does no card mean? Thank you.

"No card" means that either
  1. You have not inserted a memory card
  2. The memory card is not formatted, or
  3. The memory card is damaged and therefore can't be read by the camera.
How to insert the memory card:
  1. Open the camera’s battery door by sliding it downwards.
  2. Insert the SD card into the slot as shown inside the camera’s battery compartment. The SD card can only be inserted one way.
  3. Press the SD card completely into the camera and then close the door. Open the door and press on the memory card if you wish to remove it.
Note: There is only one way to insert the SD memory card into the slot. Do not force the card into the slot. This may damage both the camera and the SD memory card.

Before you can use the card, it has to be formatted:
  1. Insert the memory card into your camera as described above.
  2. Turn the camera on by pressing the power button.
  3. Use the multi-select button to select the "SET" option.
  4. Press the right arrow button to set "System" then press down key to select "Format".
  5. The default option is ‘Format’. Select this option by pressing the OK button.
  6. Select "Yes" to format the card.
If all this does not work it might be that your SD card is damaged. Try to replace it with another one. If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

We have a new olympus camera 1010 and cannot get the camera to use the card to store photos it only wants t use the internal memery help!!

This camera takes 16MB -2GB cards. When you insert the card, make sure that it is formatted. Usually when you insert a new card or one that was formatted for a different camera (or a PC), the Olympus 1010 will ask you to either "Clean card" or "format".

Once you have it formatted, the camera automatically defaults to storing pictures on the card. When the card is removed it will start storing back to the internal memory.

You should see an small icon on the bottom right of the camera windows display when you are taking pictures as shown on page 63 of the manual. When the xD card is installed, you should not see this icon.

If you have a faulty xD card or one that is unrecognizable, you should see error messages like those on page 57 of the same manual.

You can always go to the MENU button and click the RESET button to restore the factory default setting. Make sure you remove the xD memory card before resetting your camera. Take one or two pictures without the card and then insert the card and see if the pictures are stored in the xD card now.

Memory Problem

have you tried formatting the card first within the camera, as it may be corrupt, or try it in a card reader and format that way.

Camera wont work when memory card is inserted

I suggest you try to use a different memory card. If it doesn't happen again then it's probably a bad memory card.
