Please read these/the 2 posts that I posted prior for a similar XD mem card problem, as I firmly believe you are "formatting" your mem card improperly using your home computer instead of "formatting" the card on your camera.

Also the XD type card & size are very important also!!

What you will have to do is read and download the photos you have on that XD card using the same "card reader" you used before and then properly "re-format" that card in your "CAMERA ONLY". This should solve your XD card problems.

PRIOR POSTS:

Kristina,

Not knowing what model Olympus camera you have, or how old it is - your new memory card "format" problem is one of 3 possibilities.

1st - If you have an older Olympus camera more then 4-5 years old the newer M & H series type cards over 256mb will probably not work in your older camera, as by the camera's internal firmware chip design of the camera itself. Some cameras were upgradeable some weren't as to the internal firmware chip as well as available software drivers depending on which computer OS system you were using ie: (WIN98SE, WIN2000, etc). Has to do with the memory card read/write chip speed as well, and also has to do with the physical storage size of the card itself. Some digital cameras were MAXED OUT at 512mb cards, some as low as 256mb. A 2gb card simple won't work in that/your camera in that case.

If you read the camera's user manual it will possibly tell you this, or else go online to www.olympusamerica.com and use this link:

View which cameras are compatible

Select camera model series and scroll down the model # and research the max card size & type you can use (3 basic XD card speed types available - regular XD - M type - H type).

If you are using the wrong type & size card you will need to return that card (if you can) and get the right XD size & type for your camera.

2nd - You should always FORMAT (same as ERASE ALL and FORMAT modes on most Olympus cameras) the new card, or any XD card for that matter in your camera itself. NOT THE HOME COMPUTER!!! The 2 format procedures are not the same!!

If you are re-shooting (re-using) the same XD card over and over again and then downloading the JPEG pix directly to the computer using a USB interface cable there usually is no need to re-format the card again as long as the XD card stays the camera and is not downloaded into a home computer via a "card reader". If you do the latter "card reader" then I would advise doing a card re-format in the camera again just to be safe!!

And lastly - If your home computer recognizes the XD card via a good "card reader" (do not FORMAT the XD card here btw, as you are just checking the card out to see it is GOOD is all), but the camera will not then that is a good sign your camera is OK, but it's just the wrong type & size XD card.

Hope this helps solve your camera XD problem not knowing which model you have.

Best regards,

Frank

AND:

Follow up to previous post:

I didn't have the time to access the exact link below to check on your specific 2004 model year camera because I missed the Fuji camera model part, as I'm brand new to this site - so please forgive my previous oversight here.

I was right though in my initial posted assumption that you bought the wrong XD memory card based on your Fuji FinePix A330 Digital Camera - as to it's older model year - in that your camera is limited to a 512mb memory card.

Make sure you buy the 512mb standard card if you still can find them. Otherwise check with Fuji Corp to make sure the M type card (faster read/write chip) will work in your specific model. The M type cards work just fine in my Olympus C-740 even though it was told to me they wouldn't work at all, but each digital camera is slightly different as to it's internal firmware (BIOS) chip.

See the following camera info for your specific model at the link below under Storage Media:

Steves Digicams - Fujifilm FinePix A330 - User Review

I hope this now clears up any prior confusion from the previous post.

Best regards,

Frank

The number depends on the resolution and image quality. It will also depend on the subject. See the table on page 85 of this manual. Thirty is about right for 1- or 2-megapixel photos.

Is there a way to retrieve photos taken on a canon eos rebel t3 when no memory card was inserted?


I'm afraid you're out of luck. The camera does not have any memory to store photos. You can take one photo and look at it on the screen to see how the camera works, but this is primarily for demonstration purposes. Shooting without a memory card is like shooting an old film camera without any film loaded. You can go through the motions of taking a picture, but nothing is stored permanently.

My screen says 'internal memory is full' I have only taken about 50 pictures. I then bought a new memory card but after 3 pictures the same message comes on screen.


You need to look at your image storage settings. Press "Menu", "up/down" and "OK" to choose "Image Storage"; is it set to "auto" or "internal"?

If it's set to "Auto" then there's some reason that it's not recognising your memory card. You should format it. Press "Menu", "up/down" and "OK" to choose "Format" and then select the memory card.

If it's set to "Internal" then you need to set it to "Auto". Then it will use the memory card if it's inserted. (Take the card out to access the photos in Internal Memory.)

How large is your memory card? If you're shooting at the full 9mp and highest quality, that takes up a lot of room on a small card.

The camera is saying "memory card full" or "image not stored". Of course we have taken all photos off card so it isn't full, and also have tried 2 other memory cards , but to no avail! Not sure what else...


Hi have you tried to reformat the memory card in the camera. Sometimes if you reformat it in the computer the camera does not like it. Also make sure your camera uses either an SD card or a SDHC card. Also make sure the lock on the side of memory card is off. Lastly get a rubber and try cleaning terminals where memory card meets the camera do camera as well as memory card. If all this fails go to website and look for any updates, you may be able to update firmware. Hope one of these work. Best Regards ALex

I lost user manual of my Sony Cybershot DSC-W150


I think you have set the "image storage" to internal. If you take a picture the memory reading should go down one shot-if it doesnt it is because your photos are on the internal memory instead of on auto or memory card. If you take out the card then try to view the pictures hopefully you will now see them. Eventually if this is the problem you will get a notice telling you that "internal memory is now full£.
