SanDixk Ultra II 2GB

Well I was uploading pictures into my computer directly from the card to the computer.

But when I tried using it again on my camera it says "Card cannot be used"

Check and see if there is a locking pin on the cartd, as this will sometimes cause a problem, also, try reformatting the card to FAT 32 or even NTFS

My computer wont read my sdhc card

If you know that your CF card is working (e.g. as in your camera) then the most likely cause is your computer Flash/CF reader either inbuilt or external): older readers (and cameras/phones) will not support High Capacity (xxHC) card and will be limited to a maximum of 2GB. Hope it helps.

SanDisk ULTRA II 8GB won't read when installed in a laptop. Works fine in the Digital camcorder. Trying to import the footage on to a Fujitsu tablet laptop (12 months old). Reads the standard 2Gb memory...

No, it's a hardware issue. Your 8GB card is an SDHC card (the HC stands for High Capacity), but the card reader in your machine is clearly only compatible with the older type SD cards. SDHC devices will accept SD cards, but devices designed solely for SD cards cannot read or format SDHC cards.

There is no firmware update for this, your only fix is to buy an external reader compatible with SDHC cards for connection via a USB socket. Most new readers are fully SDHC compliant, but check the specs for shelling out your hard-earned...

Flash drive says its full but it is new, never used

If it is brand new, you have nothing to loose: reformat the whole card using FAT32 if possible.

Out of Memory?

Check the camera. Many older cameras cannot use the newer larger than 2GB memory cards. If your camera cannot us the UDMA type cards you will have to buy a smaller card.

San Disk 2GB is saying it's full when it still has plenty of room

I didn't understand you weren't using it for photography. Here some more suggestions:

* Double check the SD card's Write Protection Switch to make sure it is unlocked.
* If your card reader is old it may need to be replaced. See if the card works properly in your camera. If you hook your camera to your MAC with its USB cable you should be able to upload and download files.

Camera reads, computer doesn't

That is odd. Try the recovery software that comes with the sandisk cards and see if you are able to get them after that.
Do you format your cards each time in the camera before shooting?

Sandisk ultra 2 1.0gb will not download onto my computer?

Inspect the camera itself under good light with a keen eye. You may find a pin is bent, broken or missing in the flash card compartment. This would require the aid of a camera technician to fix. If this is not the case though, then perhaps the card has become corrupt or faulty. I would suggest purchasing a leading brand card reader(eg lexar or sandisk) as they often come with image recovery software to help in these situations. Good Luck!

Cannot retrieve photos from SanDisk Ultra 11 4GB

Card probably became corrupted. Try running a Memory Card Recovery Program. If that doesn't work take it to a place that'll do that type of thing professionally, a lot of electronics and computer stores do this for a small charge.    <<<Free Recovery Program

Compact Flash Problems

have you tried to reformat the CF card?  If you deleted the image through your computer and not with the camera, the computer may have removed more than what was needed...
