    I'm not sure what that means, but this is a card I have been using for about 6 months, so I'm guessing that this is something else

First - have you checked the little switch on the memory card? Maybe it's locked. I also had a similar problem once with a card I had used for ReadyBoost on vista. Put in back in my computer and de-allocated the space and it worked fine.

After locking memory card, do I then unlock it to take pictures and will that then erase the memory card or can you tell me how to so


Locking the memory card prevents you from taking and adding photos to the memory card. It also prevents you from deleting photos from the memory card.
If you want to erase all the photos off the memory card. unlock the memory card, go to the camera's Menu and scroll through the settings ti Format the memory card, then format the memory card.

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.

How do I clear the internal memory?


This should do it - this comes from the manual Formatting will do what you want.

Formatting an SD Memory Card or Internal Memory This utility formats the internal memory (or memory card) and erases all stored images and data. 1. Press the button to turn on your ViviCam 3785. 2. Press the MODE button twice to enter [ ] Playback mode. Then press the button to enter the Playback menu. 3. Select [Delete] by using the / buttons, and press the button. 4. Select [Format ] by using the / buttons, and press the button. 5. If you want to format your SD memory card or the internal memory choose [OK] by pressing / buttons, then press the button to confirm.  To cancel the action, select [Cancel] instead.  [No Image] pops up after the SD memory card or internal memory has been formatted. Note:  Be sure the SD memory card is properly inserted into the camera before formatting it.  To format the internal memory, be sure to remove your SD memory card first.  Formatting will erase all information (even unrelated , non-camera data) from the memory/card.  For complete compatibility, be sure NOT to select FAT 32 as the file system when you format the SD card in your computer. Memory cards formatted in FAT 32 file system will not be recognized by this ViviCam 3785.

I have an early 2004 D70 and am receiving random digital display errors of FEE, CHG, FOR. If I play with removing and reinstalling the battery or memory card they will usually clear but I cannot figure...


Okay the FEE is telling me that you haven't locked your lens in at F22. Lock the lens should be an aperture ring turn it to the smallest aperture and there is a little lock on the side of the lens that will hold it in that position. The camera then looks after the rest. If this is allowed to float then the camera is getting a faults input from the lens. The CHG is a card error, possible you have been deleting images from the card and not formatting the card the card needs to be formatted to the camera.
As a rule of thumb format the memory card in the camera after each time you download pictures to the computer. This cleans the memory card and allows proper communications between memory card and camera. Okay you'll love this one the "FOR" error is a known problem with Nikon D70 and can be fixed by updating your camera firmware on Nikon's site that Otta help. cheers have fun

When I insert a new memory card into my Z730 it tells me "memory card must be formatted" but it will not format. The memory card that is currently in the camera works fine!


Hello. Some of these memory cards have a small lock slide on the perimeter. Check yours to see if in fact, it is in the lock position which would prevent you from formatting. Formatting erases everything from the card so the lock is a protection.

please rate my answer as very helpful.. thanks. J.

Cant unlock a picture


If you want them to be permanently deleted you can format the memory card and this will clear the card of all data. If you just want these certain images deleted then you need to be in Playback mode - press the Menu button - go to Playback menu and press Ok - then choose the key option and turn it from ON to OFF. This will remove the lock and allow you to erase the selected image.

You can take out the memory card from camera and then download a memory card recovery software to recover photos from memory card, you can refer to this tutorial that helped me before
http://www.asoftech.com/articles/how-to-recover-lost-photos-from-memory-card.html


If needed, you may do a quick format of the memory card and then use asoftech data recovery to recover your files.

Memory Card Locked


Do you have a computer that will read the "memoery cards"? Try reading the cards. If there is nothing on the card you still should get a message telling you the status. Check the setup of the camera. Some cameras allow you to lock the memory card from setup memu. You might also need to "format" the card before you use them.
