Memory Stick Error

I have been using the 1 gb sd card and had no problem with taking or playing the pictures back. Then the next day when I went to view or take new pictures it state "memory card error" won't let me go any further. Have I lost all of the pictures or what has caused this message. This was a new card -- first time using it and I had quite a few good pictures.

    I am using a Canon Power Shot A570 IS, 7.1 pixel digital camera

  • daviesb Mar 13, 2008

    I tried all of the above. The card cannot be read on the computer.

  • daviesb Mar 13, 2008

    I tried to use the F-Recovery download and it did not find any images that were taken on the memory stick.

    I used a card reader and there weren't any contacts on the memoray stick.

I have a canon ixus 5mp and I recently had this exact problem in the middle of a wedding. I popped the memory card out of the camera and rubbed the SD Card metal contacts very gently with a clean tissue. I was outside and made sure I was earthed so I had no static which may damage the card - touch some metal pluming to ensure you are earthed.. I then replaced the card and continued to use the camera without a problem.

In your case - if cleaning the contacts does not work - can you read the memory card in a Computer? - if so down load your pictures and for printing etc - and then format the card in the computer. Then put it back in the camera and retry shooting.

If that does not work or it re-occures then the card then it may be faulty. Try to change it anyway for peace of mind if you can.

    When I mean contacts I mean electrical connections, which may need cleaning. On SD cards they are apparent on the back.



    I have also used a pencil eraser to remove any grease from these - to fix this kind or problem also.

Try using F-Recovery for SD Cards. It can get past common file corruption errors on SD cards and recover picture data.

It's free to download, install and try. If it finds data, you can then buy the software and let it do the recovery.

Hi,

Try to get hold of a card reader and access the contents on the card.

    The contents should be there. Then copy them to your PC.

    I am sorry to say but it sounds like your memory card has malfunctioned. There is nothing that can be done.

What size memory card does the kodak easyshare cx6200 take?


The internal memory for this camera is 8 MB.

The manual indicates using memory cards of size 8 to 128 MB, so this is an early SD memory camera, following the original SD standard. Do not try SDHC or SDXC cards. The camera will support a 1 GB card. It *might* support a 2 or 4 GB card, but since this is a 2 Mpixel camera, a 512 MB or 1 GB card will allow you to save thousands of jpeg format pictures.

How can i change number of pictures i can take


Your camera has only 10 MB available for picture storage using internal memory. An SD card of even 1 GB (tiny by today's standards) will hold 100x as many picture as your internal memory. If you already have an SD card,

1) Buy a larger memory card. These don't cost much and an 8, 16, or 32 GB card can hold a LOT of pictures.
If you want to increase the number of pictures you can store either with the current card or using internal memory, then you have a couple of other options. 1) change the picture size. Menu -> then up/down arrows to select Picture Size. Press the OK button. Select the option you want (6.1 MP, 5.4 MP, etc). Press the OK button.

I have a vivitar vivicam T324N when turned on reads storge error and no file and i just took pictures with it turned it off then the next day tried to use it again and can't


Do you have an SD card in the camera, it may be saying this because it has no where to store the images you are taking(thus saying Internal memory is full)...... If you do have an SD card make sure it isn't full, if it is then just stick the SD card into a computer and download them off, then erase them off the SD card.... Hope this helps :)

Memory stick error, what does this mean, What can


Two things to try: 1. Get a separate card reader and use it to download the pics to your computer. 2. Take the card to Walmart and plug the card into a Kodak Picture Kiosk machine. You can print the pics or even make a cd of them. Once you safely have your pics. put the card back into the camera, go into the menu and find "format"..follow the on-screen instructions to erase and initialize the card. Everything should be back to normal.

Last time i used it wasworking fine next day got a 'card error'


Did you try formating the memort stick.
This will clean up any error in the stick.
Don't let the battery in the camera run to low, messes with the flash memory.

We insert a memory chip into our Kodak EasyShare C190 camera. The read-out informs us that the memory card requires formatting. We click on "OK." The camera goes into a "formatting" mode, then informs us...


Your camera is only supporting SD/MMC Cards (up to 2 GB) and KODAK SDHC Cards (up to 8 GB).
The card that you currently have might be faulty. Please try another card.
You might also need to switch the camera over to saving pictures directly onto the SD card.1: Menu, Cam settings, Chose AUTO or SD card option Press OK
Note: If the SD card isn't in the camera or is unreadable the camera will automatically go back to saving you taken pictures on the internal memory.

Polaroid Memory Chip problem


Hey ashley131,
One thing that might be happening is your SD card is set to the locked position on the side of your card. If this is not the case you could try opening the card by going to My Computer and right clicking on the memory card icon, then left click on open, and if it opens copy all the files shown and paste them into a folder of your choice, and then try opening the files using windows picture manager. If this doesn't work there are memory card recovery programs you should be able to use to recover your images just do an internet search for memory card recovery software. Once you have saved your images to your computer I would format your memory card in your camera, and the card should be able to be used again. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Memory card problem


Assuming your camera acts like a removable drive when connected to the PC try the following.

  1. Right click the removable drive(your camera) in my computer and go properties>tools>error checking>tick both boxes>ok
  2. Wait till it finishes and check if you can now view the contents of the card. And copy to safe place straight away.
  3. Try http://www.officerecovery.com/freeundelete/ to recover any deleted files or fragments of damaged files.
  4. Let me know if any of this works.

File error


I have seen this problem with generic SD memory cards so it could be a faulty memory stick.  Try to get a replacement.  If you want to try to recover the pictures you have taken, I suggest Zero Assumption Recovery (Google for it). Check to see if it is compatible with your camera before downloading.
