Camera card not holding pics

I have a sandisk 1.0gb memory card and it was working great and then one day i was taking a pic and the red battery light came on in the middle of taking the pic and all of a sudden it went from being able to take over a thousand pics to a little over 100 then to 20 and now im down to just 3 i try to format it with my computer put it just sits thinking i have to take out the batteries in my camera to get it to stop

    Can you connect your sandisk card direct to your PC without the camera?

    Try connecting up your camera and if another drive appears in "My Computer" right click and see what the capacity is.

Van D UK is right. It seems suspiciously like a memory card corruption problem - maybe caused by the combination of the red battery light coming on and the act of taking the picture.
If you remove the scandisk card (camera off) and use a card reader to view the contents on a computer, you maybe can see if the file structure on the scandisk makes sense.
Presumably you have the camera user manual. This might help.
There might be some info about how to set up a new scandisk card. You might be able to rescue all the photos you have already on the existing scandisk card. I suggest you rescue them as a priority if you can. I suggest too that, in future, you download as a matter of habit all your photos (regardless) onto a computer. Having rescued as much as you can you can either re-format the existing scandisk card using the camera (if you can) or buy yourself another scandisk card.
I have had similar problems with my Sony camera and card. Try and get the correct card for your camera. I got some cards simlar to a Sony card but in the end I could only use one of them in the camera. The other had to do duty as file storers/transferers.

Just to let you I had Moultire m-80 when I used a pny sd card it ruined my camera. They were kind enough to replace it for me. I just use what they recommended do not have any more problems. I only delete pic on my computer and not digital camera. Try doing a hard reset take everything out turn to the on position for about 2-3 minutes after 3 min put brand new battery's in it while on the on position should say no card at this time. If doesn't turn camera off put sandisk sdhc card in it. Test camera again if still not working Moultire will help you I have talked them great customer service.

My son got a vivitar 8025 and it wont take pictures it keeps telling us the card is protected. What does this mean and how do we fix it?


did you put an sd memory card into it? this camera will not take pics without an sd memory card (it did not come with any memory to hold pics on the camera itself). the memory card needs to be inserted into the slot right next to the battery:)

How do I clear the memory so I can take more pictures I can only take about 22 pictures and I have a 1GB sandisk card, then it says my memory is full


You can connect your camera to your PC or laptop. then transfer all your pics to anyone of it. After that you can delete all the pics from the camera memory card. hence providing you with a full 1GB free space to click as many pics you want to.

Please respond back if this does not resolve your problem.

Have a great day.

Take the memory card to a camera store and ask for a data recovery. As long as you do not take any pictures on that card until after the data is recovered you may get most or all you pictures back. If you take pictures over the ones on the card they are lost forever.

Take without a memory card


No, the A420 does not have internal memory. The card that came with the camera is only intended to allow you to try the camera to make sure it works. You should really purchase a new SD card. New ones these days are literally capable of holding hundreds if not thousands of pictures, and cost less than $7. Here's an example:

A red image pops up when I take a pic


I chose the DMC-TZ3A since I didn't know what the letter was at the end of the model number for your particular camera. If this is the camera

Here is a link to the manual

If not

Here is link to the Lumix series cameras

Pg 25 indicates that flashing red in the upper right corner is the battery needing to be recharged. If the battery was recently recharge and its turning red on the screen, it could be that the battery isn't holding a charge and may need to be replaced.

I didn't see any other error messages on the screen indicating that icon unless b,c, or d models have a different error message in that area of the screen.

Camera memory card errors/computer doesn't recognize


Can you get a memory card reader that works for a Mac? If so then loading pic's to the 'puter through that route Flashing red and green lights have a meaning- what does the manual say?[Check the more comprehensive manual on the Software disk] You could buy[or borrow] another card- nothing wrong with having more that one. Also try the card in another camera and a fresh card in yours[Take it a photo shop to try this]
