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 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 Error Message


There is a white switch on the side of those sticks, and make sure it is not in write protected mode. If that doesn't work, I am sorry to say that stick might of went bad. Before giving up I would take to a professional film place and have them take a look to see if they can get them off w/o formatting.

Memory card error


Take the card out of the camera, and re-insert it. See if you get the same error. If so, it has likely been corrupted. Reformatting it may correct the error, but you will lose whatever was on it, unfortunately.

(Also, if you have another reader, like what most PC's have on the front of them, give it a shot - there's a chance it's the camera, and not the card.

Cheers

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

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.

My e310 cannot format my sd card


I had the same "error 31" problem when trying to format a 2 GB SD card. I then tried a 1 GB SD card and it worked fine. I wonder if the device only supports up to 1 GB cards?? I checked the user guide and it does not say one way or the other.
