Yes, reconnect it to your PC and run an antivirus scan.

I've seen this before on Olympus camera's and the little XD card. Once you given it a scan, make sure the contacts on the card are clean, use a soft dry cloth. And give the card connectors in the camera a blow, clear out any dust which may have creapt in.

Scan virus


What problem are you having? I can't imagine a camera getting a virus. You can try plugging your memory card into your computer then running a scan on it if you think it may be infected.

I think my sigma sd14 has a virus. I just got it, it's new. Then I connected it via usb to my pc WHICH i forgot is extremely infected by virus. Now everytime i access my dslr it wont ON if my memory card...


Cameras do not get viruses. The effect of the virus may only be on the memory card of your camera. Try to format the card using your camera's built in feature. BEWARE though that you will lose all files in the card when you format it.

To resolve your virus problem in your computer, carefully follow these steps :

1. Download, update, and scan your computer using Malwarebytes from this link.
2. Delete all infections found by Malwarebytes then restart your computer.

My casio ex-s10 is not turning on. I remember it having been infected by an unknown virus then one day the memory card just got full then it wont turn on again. its not even responding when being connected...


Hi, Please remove your connection with PC. Then check your batteries for malfunction, replace with new ones if necessary. Turn on your camera, if fail , remove your infected memory card and turn On again your camera. Is it solve the problem?. Normally the virus will just make your device 'hang' or ' data corrupt ( no access to data)'.

My pc keeps restarting over and over but I don't have restore disc


Hello!

There are a lot of factors why your PC is acting that way, it could be a virus infection, hardware or software problems.

Virus Infection
- if your computer is infected or the virus behavior or capability is to keep restarting your system or PC. This could be the solution, you can install a decent virus scanner and update it always to be able to detect viruses.

Software Problem
- If your Operating System is behaving badly or some system files is missing, this can cause your PC to always restarts. To fix this is to reformat your hard drive and install OS again.

Hardware Problem
- If your RAM or one of the memory installed in your PC is defective it can cause restarting also, try cleaning your RAM's or swap other RAM to be able to determine the problem.

Hope I was able to help.

The memory card i used gotinfected by a virus...


Most likely not.
There IS a risk of the camera taking damage but if it's a "standard" computer virus the risk of the camera being "infected" should be very very slim.
