Try removing the card, and replacing it back in. Attempt to see if the images are on the card that you deleted. If they are gone, format the card again, and repeat removing the card and replacing it. It should work after that. If it doesn't, it is a faulty generic card.

Memory card error


With the Memory card error the camera is telling you it encountered a serious problem. you could try saving all pictures on the card to the computer. If you saved all pictures, and only after you saved all pictures, you can format the memory card, and hope the problem is solved.
Do backup you pictures ad many times as possible. After you saved the pictures on the computer, make some extra backups. Now and then don't use the delete picture in the camera, but do a full format on the card.

Image database error


The manual on page 126 says:
Image Database File error Cannot recover Import all of the images to the computer with "PMB", and format the memory card or the internal memory (page 97). To view the images again with the camera, export the imported images to the camera with "PMB".

If you used the card before in the same camera, it should be compatible. If you can't save the pictures normally, us an external card reader, to save or recover and save the pictures first. Then do a format in the card reader (FAT or FAT32) and when you reinsert the card in the camera, again format the card, this time in the camera. (You always should format in the camera, the first time you use a memory card in a camera, or after you had a failure tithe the memory card.

When i turn on my camera it says the memory card needs formatting i follow the instructions but it doesnt work and keeps saying to format the memory card. this happens over and over and i cannot take...


To understand the photo loss situation, consider a scenario: You format a memory card in Digital Camera, and start to capture some pictures. However, while capturing pictures, your camera shuts down due to low battery. Now, after recharging battery, when you try to access those photograph on the card, you receive the following error message on camera screen:

The Card requires formatting: Additionally, the camera is unable to capture any new photographs.

The main cause for the above error message is corruption of memory card due to conking of battery while a read/write operation was running.

These memory card needs to be formatted before you save any new pictures. It is always a good practice to take backup of card and format it before use. This enables you to fight with any damage done to the memory card and to erase the old data saved on the card. However, the probability of card getting corrupted again (after you have saved new data) still exists.

First try formating with an external SD Card reader connected at PC and test it.

When I go to download the photos to the computer it says the card need to be formatted but it was before i took pictures. How do I get the pictures from the card to the computer


Welcome to FixYa.

First, I suggest that you have to clean you memory card using soft and dry cloth after that try to format it again and save it.

After you formatted your memory card, now try to upload it to your computer. Sometimes memory card wont work because is not formatted for the camera used you said that you already formatted it before, possible that you forgot to save all the settings and formatting that you've done before.

I hope this information can help you to resolve your issues.

Thank you for using Fixya.

When I install a memory sd disk, the camera says it needs to format. I format it and it then says it has to format. It just keeps saying that it has to format and wont alow me to take any pictures at all,...


Hello,

Try to format the memory card on your computer first. After that, test the camera and see if it can detect the memory card.

To format the memory card on your computer, you need to have a card reader or a memory card slot on your PC. Once your mmc gets detected, go to My Computer and then right click on the Memory card and then click Reformat. Choose default settings and then check Quick Format.

Let me know how it goes.

When i take a picture it wont save on the memory card? and the pictures saved on the camera wont copy to memory card either. everytime i try and copy the pictures it says no file to copy.


THe memory card is either to large for the camera, or needs to be formatted. Put the memory card in a laptop or other card reader and inspect what is on it; save the contents and then reformat the card for the camera by running format.

Accidental delete of pictures, how to recover


First of all, do not save any new file to camera's memory card.

Take out memory card, and connect it to computer using a card reader. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in Windows Explorer.
Download this photo recovery software

Install and open the photo recovery software, select the memory card, and click 'Start' button.

Check memory card from computer with card reader.
If that doesn`t help.
Try formatting memory card from camera or from computer (it will destroy data on card).
Most likely your pictures are alredy lost.
