Question about SanDisk Memory Media
Because the camera simply reports "Memory card error".
Other identical cards work ok in camera.
This card has been used for Vista ReadyBoost but is otherwise new and unused in the camera.
Tried formatting in Vista but no change.
Sandisk RescuePro software does not seem to have a format option - odd.
My camera is Canon Power Shot SD750. I bought a new 2GB card. I believe that I formatted it on the camera - I chose "format" and followed instructions from the camera itself. Then, I try to upload onto HP Image software, but it tells me that the "status from E:\" is "No media" even though I have taken pictures without problems. When I try to look in E:\ - the computer tells me it's not formatted and to chose to format it in FAT or FAT32, but I'll loose all images if I do that. I don't understand the problem.
Hi LeslieWilson ,
If I may add to IB4G2008 and Jaime867.....
I think you are torn between a rock and a hard place and that is your concern, either way you loose.
What I would suggest:
1. Run a file recovery program and hopefully recover what ever image files could still be recovered from the memory card. This should be done using a memory card reader and the memory in question. I have had good results using Get Data Back for FAT expect other comparable software to be as effective. The demo/freeware version would only allow few file retrieval at a time.
2. Successful on # 1 or not, the next step would be to format the memory card. I would suggest using first HP Drive Key Boot Utility as I have had several issues with Windows built-in format command for external storage (including memory cards). Thereafter the built-in format feature of the camera may be used if ever required.
3. Run Flobo HDDBadSectorRepair or something similar if there are any bad sectors.
4. If any of the above or the suggestions of the others will not work, you may want to consider simply replacing it as it is then suspect and you of course wouldn't want to entrust saving any images thereafter.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Try to assign a different letter to the new device by right click on my computer > left click on manage > double click on disk management > right click on the "E" left click on change drive letters and paths. At this point assign letter "Z" for example, that should work.

Did you try formating with the Camera? Before that, Try formating with Windows Disk manager, then format with the camera, It will solve the problem.
