Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1 Digital Camera
Memory card is stuck. Normally, to remove you push down, and then there is a click and the spring pushes up the card and sets it free. Now, it won't push down or pull out. Camera is still useable (by downloading pics from the camera via cable to computer), but would love to be able to get the memory card out!
SOURCE: memory card stuck in camera
Normally the card is spring loaded, so when you press down on it, it will pop out. If the card is stuck solid, don't try and force it out. Be gentle and try coax it out with some needle nose pliers.
If you feel the plastic flexing or if anything may break, it may a case of dissembling the camera.

Yes, it's normal. You should never try to delete, format, transfer to camera, or anything else with the computer. It's always from camera to computer...never the other way around. And when you're finished downloading, always use the "safely remove hardware" icon at the bottom right of your computer screen.

probably it is set to store on the internalmemory or the card is locked...this model operates with an SD card ..and it has a minimum 2G from what I know...if the picks are on internal memory ..and it is not seen as a removable device ..first try to remove the card to be sure that what you will find it is the actual internal memory ...
you will probably need a driver for it ...or at least the program that came with the camera ...you can also try a picture manager like ACDsee or so ...and after you install the manager ( you can use the manager that came on cd ) ...but in general ...remove the card to be sure that you are not confusing them ...after that open the manager and clik import from device ...most managers for photos have this feature ...after that choose from the list of devices the camera by name ...it will locate the picture..than a wizard like window will guide you to select the pictures and download them ...it will make a folder od desktop for Mac ...and for windows on my documents ...(my pictures folder with the date on for a name ..)

You can accomplish the transfer by going into the menu and find "copy". Follow the instructions for copying from the internal memory to the memory card.

With the card out of the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory.
