Try a new card and test it. A card can go bad, not often, but it has happened to me.
Also this camera uses compactflash. The pins could be bent, causing errors.
If you try another card, and still cannot read or write to it, then the camera needs repairs.
Another option would be to sell it on a site such as
Ebay for parts, as is.

Check the card slot for debris and clear it out gently with canned air, small thin piece of plastic, etc on the same side as the lock tab. Try not to use anything metal unless you have a really delicate touch.

Card error

Is this the card you always used, or did you recently buy a new card?
Because you can use MMC cards and SD cards. Most SD cards you now buy, even the 2 GB ones, are SDHC cards and they are not compatible with your camera.
You should try to get an SD card. They used to make SD cards up to 4GB, but as I said, now they already make 2GB SDHC, So look careful when buying a memory card.
If it was the card you always used, try to get all pictures from the card, using an external memory card reader on your computer. Then in the camera do a format, before you continue.
If it does not work, try an other card. SD that is.

Card error message

Without knowing the error I can not help you. I would recommend investing a new camera, or buying one used from for $5.

Camera cards are never to be formatted on the computer....only in the camera. "card error" usually always means you need to format the card in the camera. This will erase it so download any pics you want to save first.

I got a "card error"

Welcome to FixYa.

There are three reason why do you get a "card error" when trying to format your card.

* a new memory card or unformatted camera.
* a memory card that has a file, this camera can't recognise or one has been take from another camera.
* always format the memory card using the camera. If you insert a memory card that has been formatted using other cameras, memory card reader, or PC's you will get this error message (card error)

Feel free to send us your comments or suggestions if this solution was helpful.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Card Locked ! Error

Remove SD card, then whilst card is removed, delete all pictures that may still be stored in cameras 'internal' memory (usually just a few) then replace SD card. Should be unlocked now?.

I need help Please my printer won't print gettig an error

The error message is related to the card that connects the printer to the network. The card is most likely bad. You may be able to clear the message by turning the machine off for 20-30 min, however this does not always work. If the error persists, you should turn off the machine, remove the card (it is in the back where the cables plug in, it has a connector similar to a large phone cord and can be removed by loosening the two thumb screws and sliding it straight back) and hook the printer directly to the PC with a parallel cable. You can also order a new card (Part#J3113A) online, but it will take some time and needs to be configured after installation.

Hope it helps,good luck to your daughter with her paper!.
