Question about SanDisk Memory Media
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
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.
