Sometimes the memory cards just go bad.

If you have a card reader on your computer, put the car in there and see if the computer can read it or format it.

If not, its time to buy another card.

Your current card may be under warranty since some have 5 year and even lifetime warranties.

Good Luck!

How do I format a memory card without erasing pictures already on it?


No, format will erase all data. Try doing chkdsk <drive letter> /f in the command prompt.

Format?save your files to pc first yes/ no.This is the message i get when inserting the memory card. i havnt a clue what to do.No manual.Please help.Thanks.


If you have pictures on the memory card, don't choose format...this will completely erase the card. It appears to be asking you if you want to save the pics to the computer first. Do you? If so, connect the camera to the computer and choose yes. Otherwise, choose no. You could also try a camera reset. With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "reset" and follow the on-screen instructions.

Memmory card will not work with the phone


Unfortunately, the highest you can go with a Sync is a 2gb microSD card.

microSD is not the same as microSDHC and older phones will not read the newer microSDHC format.

It says picture error for every picture and cannot delete photos individually. One minute it said card full then every photo said picture error and switched itself off. Its not a happy camera


Sounds like you will need to format the memory card. This will permanently erase all the data from the card and then you will be able to use it again. To format the card: Press the Menu button - right arrow to setup - right arrow to format option. You will see format yes or no. Choose Yes and press ok. This will clear the picture error messages and the card can be used again.

Card not initialized


I had a similar issue with an XD card in my Fuji FinePix S3000.

I had used the several times for a couple of years without problem.

The issue appeared right after dowloading pictures from the card inserted in my notebooks' card reader - an operation I have done several times in the same notebook without any problem.

I have fixed the issue going to Menu, Option, SetUp, Format and choosed OK.

Deleted all the pictures (make a copy before if the card is readable in the pc as it was my case) but made the card readable again.
