Instruction Manual The previous manager has taken the instruction manual. I have a new memory card which needs to be initialized and no matter what I do I can't initialize it! Can you advise, please?

    I tried that solution, but my camera doesn't seem to have a "wrench" option in the setup menu. I bought the camera in Seoul in 2002 so my software may be different. Under set (last option on the right) I have set-up/file size/manual/auto. I select set-up and the only options are: 'image display' 'auto power off' 'date/time' 'frame no.' 'beep' 'language' and 'reset all' - and the latter doesn't initialize the card. When the camera is in the cradle, I can pull down all of my pictures, so the card seems somewhat functional. And I pulled the card out and reseated it (just in case) but that didn't help either.

    thanks in advance!

Doh! Never mind - I was looking in the wrong setup menu, when I switched to the playback menu, format was under the erase sub-menu.

Use the menu button to go into the "set-up" menu. Jump over to the "wrench (spanner?) page #2, and go down to "format". Arrow right, then left to "OK", the press menu/OK.

I get a memory card error when I put a new scan disk in my camera, what do I do?

It sounds like you have not formatted your SD flash memory card. Since you have not indicated the brand and model camera you have, I would suggest that you look in your camera's instruction manual. Somewhere, usually in the front part of the book, there will be instructions for formatting your memory. If you do not have your camera's manual, let me know the brand and model of your camera and I will be able to give you specific instructions.

Do i need a memory card for a polaroid is426

At some stage all digital cameras need a memory card as the internal memory will not be sufficient. Refer the instruction manual for how to select and install a memory card in the camera. You also will need instructions to make sure the camera can always save images and videos onto the memory card. Polaroid cameras use the SD card.

I have just bought a EOS 500D camera and I must mention am completely new to digital cameras. Why does the instruction manual advise me to 'format' the memory card? Thanks for your help

Reading the manual is the greatest way to learn about your new camera however sometimes the terminology (new language) can be more of a challenge. Okay to address your question the "new" SD (secure digital) memory card has a little switch on the side I'll include a diagram so you can see what position this switch needs to be in. Being new the camera or your instructions are asking you to format the memory card to clean the surface and make it ready to properly communicate with your cameras "firmware" (that's software for a camera) Formatting a memory card should be done after each download of pictures to a computer, if the memory card is new or if the memory card was used in another camera. Hope this was a help

How do u fix the camera that keeps saying locked card and its not the memory card

Not sure why you are saying it's not the memory card or is it because you are working on the camera internal memory? If so the camera internal memory still needs to be formatted or initialized to properly work with the camera. I'm going to include two diagrams on a memory card that your camera will use first is the Card Lock. This is an actual lock on the side of the memory card and if in the incorrect orientation will prevent formatting all new card must be formatted to the camera they are being used in. You can't format the card in the computer and expect it to work in the camera it won't happen. You can't format the card in one camera and place it in another even the same make and model and expect to work.
Here is the first picture/diagram of the card lock

The second diagram is right out of your owners manual showing how to format/initialize your memory card
Format card was taken from page 89 of your manual Have fun with your camera

Please describe your how do i delete write protected file in my sony digital camera problem, bcoz i am able to delete some photos from my camera

You should be formatting the camera memory card not deleting. When you first get a memory card or upgrading to a new memory card it needs to be initialized meaning formatted. To clean the memory card of pictures you need to format the memory card. Your owners manual will instruct you on how to do this. Sony makes a lot of different models you didn't state which model camera but they all have a format mode. Happy Holidays from Canada

Change the primary storage to save the pictures to memory card and not the camera's internal memory. If you can't find the place to change the settings, let me know the brand and model of your camera and I will see if I can give you detailed instruction how to change storage location. You can also refer to the user manual. Good luck.

Memory card problem

Use the Picture Motion Browser to export the pictures from internal memory to the memory card. From page 43 of the manual:

1. Connect the camera to the computer. If the AutoPlay Wizard appears, close it.

2. Start up the PMB program.

3. Click the button with the two arrows and follow the instructions.

For more details refer to your PMB manual. If you've lost your manuals, you can downloat them from
