How do I refresh my micro scan disk?


With the scandisk inserted in your computer, locate the drive where you inserted and the file folder with the data you want to erase and delete or empty the file folder. If you do not have an available drive to place the scandisk, connect the media device with the scandisk included and locate the data via drive/file folder. You can locate the drive/file folder by clicking start>computer>drivelocation>scandisk folder.

Pics gone in DCIM folder. Using a Nikon s3000 coolpix camera, connected to computer, F:\s3000 is detected, within it is DCIM folder present, and within DCIM folder presents Nikon100 and Nikon101 folders,...


You cannot create new folders on an SD card and copy images to them, as the camera will not recognise them, since they were not create in the camera. Copy the entire contents of the card to a folder on your HDD, then format the card in the camera.

Hi i have a Sony Cyber Shot digital camera model no is DSC W55 and i am using Scandisk M2 2 GB. When i plug it in via USB to a computer it shows shortcut file for DCIM & MSIC. Is my card infected?...


the card has been used previously in a cellphone, the MSIC folder is the music folder and the dcim is your actual pictures.save all your pics in a folder on your desktop, disconnect your camera and format the card using the settings menu of your camera, there you goa clean memory card:))

I accidentally deleted my DCIM and MISC folder from my memory card ... I can't see the pictures I take .... how can I fix this mess!!!! Please help


Use software like PhotoRescue. Unless the photos were erased and then written over, they're probably still there. I used un-delete recovery software and it found my photos even after I had formatted the card and used it again to take more photos.

I know it's a late reply but other people may want to know you can find and recover deleted photos.

Picture folder won't open


If the DCIM folder is where the camera keeps its images, then you have no images on the card.

Otherwise, have a browse through the memory card for another folder. The folders are named differently depending on your camera. My Pentax keeps them in "DCIM", but Kodak (for example) might keep them in a different folder.

  2. right click memory stick pro duo
  3. click "add to archive"
  4. in the winrar window under format on the left hand side of the window half way down select "zip" format
  5. click "ok"
  6. once your files have archived the DCIM folder and MISC folder will be in the archived file and should be accessible from there
  7. NOTE: you cannot extract files after the archive has been created DCIM folder and MISC folder will still be invisible even if you extract them from the archive.
  8. Files can still be drag and dropped out of the DCIM folder onto desktop or chosen destination from the archived file.
Hope this has been helpful to all reading this and everyone who posted the problem :D

Memory card problems


what i did :
Tools>Folder Options...>View
i checked all options with title "display this and that kind of folders and files" and unchecked all "hide file" titles , and my real dcim folder appeared as transparent folder icon 100% usable.
if you already erased dcim.exe, try it anyway your folder should be there.

After copying your files from it format your memory card.

Mp3 problems


create a directory called MP3 and add your mp3's under it. It should already have a DCIM directory there for the images.
