Power shot 400 Naming error

Naming error when inserting a freshly emptied 1 gig card. Also deleated two "unnamed photos" which now I fear were files necessary for operation. Tried the camera with a 256 card and it works fine, How can breathe life back into the 1 gig card?

Going to Belize in the morning!

Format the card in the camera if you cant do it from a computer and make sure it has a name for the card in the format process. I just tried this on a card and it works great.

Why is the camera saying out of memory?


Usually it means that there is no memory card. Try to insert a fresh memory card then turn the camera back on. Most cameras only have enough memory for a couple of shots without a memory card being present. If you put in a fresh (empty) card and it says something about a card error, then use the menu to format the card, which may take a minute. If this does not work, please provide us with model of camera.

How do I recover pictures back to my power shot sd card


If your computer has a built in card reader you can put any photo back on the card from your computer by dragging and dropping the file to the drive letter that is your SD card. If you're trying to recover lost photos from a SD card Google "card recovery pro". It's a free program that will read your SD card and restore as many photo's as it can.

MY DIGITAL CAMERE MEMORY IS FULL, WHEN I TURN ON MY CAMER IT SAID MEMORY IS FULL. I DON'T HAVE A CARD INSERTED IN BECAUSE WHEN I PUT THE CARD IN IT WON'T COME ON AT ALL. IT ONLY COMES ON WHEN I TAKE OUT OF...


camera's onboard memory is only 8MB, maybe 1 or 2 high resolution photo. delete the photo on the camera to clear error message and use only no more than 2 gig of sd card. It does not work with higher than 2 gig which is SDHC type sd card.

Format and Check SD card


Purchase an inexpensive card reader such as the Ativa, available at Staples and Office Depot for $9.95. Put your memory card with the photos on it into the reader and plug it into a USB port on your computer. Windows will recognize it as another drive and assign it a drive letter. Using any graphics program, or Windows Explorer, navigate to that drive, open the file containing the pics, click select all, and copy the pics to a file on your computer. Make sure that all the pics have transferred or copied to the new file. Replace the card back into your camera and format the card so it is empty and ready to receive new pics. FYI: Less than 1 gig memory cards are available on ebay for dirt prices. Also, go to the camera manufacturers website and see if they have a firmware update for your camera that allows larger than 1 gig cards to be used. I had to do that for my Fuji S700 so I could use 4 gig cards. It used to max out at 2 gigs. If this has solved your problem please rate it accordingly. Good luck.

Displays file error message when trying to playback still images and video footage


Did you take the card and insert into computer/device to view photos?

Viewing photos can alter the format of the photos thereby preventing your camera from reading them.

I viewed some photos and rotated a few photos and my camera no longer recognizes the format.

good luck

Are you using a TRUE Sony Memory Stick? Or another Brand, some non-standard flash memory doesn't "erase" files correctly when told to do so, it may simply just remove the files name, or it's suffix, meaning that the stick essentially still holds all the old data, its not a faulty memory stick, it is just down to an incompatibility issue. Try using sticks made by either sony or sandisk

I just fixed mine. Put your memory card into your computer. Right click on it. Choose format. Reformat the memory card. You WILL lose all pictures stored on it.

Before putting the memory card into your camera, do the following.

Go to MENU and choose RESET ALL.

Choose reset to original settings.

When camera is done doing so, turn camera off.

Reinsert memory card after it is done being formated in your pc.
Then your camera and memory card should work great again. I just did it on my Canon Powershot A620.
