You could take the XD memory and plug it into a memory card reader that plugs into a USB connector of a computer.. The computer should treat it like just another input with folders with JPEG files. Try and delete the screwed up picture. Lexar has made several different Universal card readers that I've had and I picked up an XD to USB adapter at Walmart the other day.

How to unlock a photo in camara


The protect function allows a user to protect a picture from accidental deletion. To unprotect a picture on your camera, scroll to the protected picture that you want to delete, then press the Menu button (the button to the right of the Play button.) Scroll down the menu and you should come to an option that allows you to Protect/Unprotect the picture. Since your picture is currently protected, deselect that option. You should then be able to delete the picture normally.

Alternatively, you could also format the memory card, however this deletes ALL photos and data you have on the memory card. If you are trying to completely clear the memory, this is the best way. After turning on your camera, simply press the Menu button, scroll to Setup, then scroll down to Format. Select Format, it will ask you if you want to format the memory card, or the camera's built-in memory. Format whichever one you want to clear, if you are using a memory card then your pictures are stored on the memory card. It will take a few seconds to format.

Hope this helps.

I need the user guide for my Vivicam 8340 digital camera, since I want to install an SD card on it but I don't know how to do it. Thank you, in advance!


The user guide is not available online as a download. However installing an SD card is usually pretty simple. On this camera, the SD card slot is on the bottom inside the compartment where the battery is housed. Simply slide the door open, and locate the slot for the memory card. The memory card should only go in one way, so don't try to force it. If it doesn't fit fairly easily try turning the card around. Remember: the gold pins on the card go into the camera!

I got this fuji camera, and lost the guide book while moving, so don!t know how to do anything, and o9ne picture says it is secured, how to get rid of it. Would the place I bought it have a extra book?


I don't know where you are in the world, but I'm from the UK and have found this user manual on their website, here's the link http://fujifilm.co.uk/consumer/digital/digital-cameras/d-slr-long-zoom/finepix-s1000fd-119757/Support remember to click on the link for the manual and not the one for the brochure as the brochure is just a short reference guide to the specs of the camera.

As for a secured picture? I'm not sure why you wouldn't be able to delete that if it is stored on the camera's memory card. Try different ways of accessing the photo, one by plugging the camera into your PC through the USB cable and connecting that way, alternatively, remove card and try using a stand alone memory card reader if you have one and read the card that way.Either way, there's no real reason why you can't delete photo's you have created yourself and after all, the memory card should be able to be wiped clean of data if you so wish.

The place you bought it from, if bought from new, should have the manual for the camera without a doubt, but if you have bought second hand then it's very unlikely that they would have it, unless it was misplaced before selling it on to you.

I hope I've been of some help to you though.

I have a Kodak Easy Share (c653) digital camera . I forgot to put my memory card in it when I took some pictures. I have pictures on my card as well. How can I transfer the pictures on the internal memory...


You can view/download the user guide at
http://support.en.kodak.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/18741/selected/true

If you have enough room on the memory card, you can copy the pictures from the internal memory onto the card and then download them to your computer all at one time. If you don't have enough room on the card, you can download the pictures on them to your computer, then clear the card by formatting it, and then copy the pictures from the internal memory to the card for downloading.

If you just want to copy pictures between the internal memory and the memory card, here's the appropriate page from the user guide referenced above:

Retrieving deleted photos without memory card


Yes, you can get them back...but ONLY if you have not taken any pictures after you formated the camera. There are programs out there that use data recovery to get your pictures back, but like I said, If you have taken pictures on your camera after you did the format...nothing will work.

Canon A560 will not erase pictures


Two possible solutions.

1. Apple users have reported that the switch on the memory cards performs the file lock function in either extreme positions Lock/Unlock. In some cases they have achieved success in centering the Lock/Unlock switch allowing access to the read/write operation of the memory card

2. Connect to PC
Access drive via windows explorer
Right click on drive (MEMORY CARD)
Select properties
Confirm that RO (Read Only) is not selected.
Selected RO
Try reading card
Repeat properties un-select RO
Try deleting files

If not successful card is likely defective

Hope this helps?

Be sure that the Lock switch on the memory card in your camera is set to unlock. If it is unlocked then try and see if you can reformat the card with the camera.
