The memory card may be full. Transfer the pictures from the camera as normal (or directed), and once sure they are on your computer or printed out, delete all the pictures (erase) from the memory card.

Try to take pictures again - if the error is still present (or you are unable to transfer the pictures to the computer) , there may be an issue with the card. You may not be able to use the card anymore - but before discarding, see if it works in another device or "stand alone memory card reader". If it works in either of those devices, there may be a problem with your camera. Try using another memory card to see if you get the same message when trying to take pictures with the new card installed. if you do, it looks more like a camera problem than a memory card problem. Hopefully, it's the memory - and not the camera.

Please rate this reply if helpful - good luck!

My Sony DSC-S930 camera says file error?


Get a card reader and use it to download to a folder you create on your desktop. If that doesn't get you all of your pics, take the card to a Walmart store and use their picture kiosk machines to print the pics or even make a CD of them. Once the pics are safe, you can format the card in the camera to get it erased and back to original condition.

I have a Kodak M893-IS digital camera. Suddenly


You can try getting an SD card reader with a USB connection. The computer will treat this as another input. You should see a file folder with JPG files in it. This will be your pictures. Just do a "copy" to another file on your computer. Several companys make these card readers. 2 are Vargus and Lexar. I purchased one for my wife's camera the other day at Walmart. It was a "Targus High Speed SD/SDHC Card Reader/Writer". It was around $8.

Camera has auto-deleted pics twice


I've had similar problems with other cameras. The problem is not the camera, however, it is the sim card. If you remove the sim card and place it in the card reader on the computer, the contacts on the card eventually wear out. What it sounds like is that your new pics were not saved to the card due to poor contact. If this is the case, unfortunately, nothing is recoverable as nothing was saved. A possible short term fix is to remove the sim card and scrub the contacts with a pencil eraser. A long term solution is to get a new sim card and leave it in the camera and transfer pics using a USB connection from the camera to your computer. I hope this helps.

While attempting to load pics directly from camera to computer pushed MTP option. Now cannot find pics anywhere


Take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. Here's some freeware photo recovery software that should be what you're looking for:
http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/recovering-those-accidentally-lost.html

You will need to use a flash card reader with this software. If you don't have one, please see the following blog article, as it describes the use of a card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos. In fact there are several important reasons discussed in the article for using a card reader vice downloading from the camera. USB Card readers are also very inexpensive these day, with cost virtually not an issue:

Cant review pics on camera or computer, but camera says card is full


This occassionally happens with memory cards formatted using FAT. The simplest way for you to get the pics of the card when such a thing happens is to get a card reader. Pop the card in to the card reader, connect it to your PC and transfer the pics. Then format it using FAT32. I have noticed that my card was a lot more reliable in saving pics compared to FAT.

Card Error


firstly don't use the card, don't try and take any further pictures.

If you don't have a card reader, buy one, there under $20 and make the job of downloading so much quicker.

If you get an error with the memory card on your computer there are many programs that can help you recover faulty formatted or corrupt memory cards. Do a search on google and try a few as some are better than others and some work better in certain situations than others.

searches to try
memory card recovery
memory card repair
Corrupted Memory Card

I wish you the very best of luck..
If I can be of further help drop me a line

Pics appear on camera screen but not on card


If you can review the photos on the card while it is still in the camera (and by review, I mean go back and forth between multiple photos on the card), then there are two possibilities: 1. The photos really are on the card, and your computer can't read the card. 2. The photos really AREN'T on the card, and are perhaps in internal memory on the camera instead. Some thoughts for things to try: 1. Put the card in the camera, take a few photos, make sure you can review them all on the camera. Take the card out. NOW try reviewing photos on the camera with NO card in. What happens? 2. Try putting the card in your card reader in your computer. Copy a file (any file, a word document, anything) from your hard drive onto the card. Is it there? Can you copy the file back off the card to somewhere else? It sounds like the camera is fine, and the problem is with the card or the media reader.
