Hi Sir

  • Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from Amazon.com or Buy.com
  • 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
  • 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  • 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  • 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
  • 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

    My Kodak DX 6490 will not read my 2 Gb or less SD Cards. It keeps recording to the camera memory. I will not play videos onto my digital TV. What should I do?


    Hello, Have you tried formatting the memory card with the camera?
    If a card is formatted with another camera or if it is new you should format it with the DX6490.Hope this helps.

    I HAVE PICS ON MY INTERNAL MEMORY AND NEED TO PRINT. I PLACED A MEMORY CARD IN TO TRY TO COPY TO THE MEMORY CARD. iT KEEPS TELLING ME THERE IS NO MEMORY CARD. tHE MEMORY CARD HAS OTHER PICS ON IT AND IS...


    If the "other" pictures have been taken with a differed camera your camera will not read the memory card until it is formatted to your camera. Formatting will erase all pictures on the card. You need to download the pictures to the computer. Format the memory card and then you will be able to transfer pictures from the internal memory to the memory card then to print or to the computer. You should format the memory card after each time you download the pictures to the computer.

    When I insert the memory card into my kodak m1093is camera it takes a long to time for the screen to come on and will not let me take pictures for a long time. When the memory card is not inserted there...


    Do you have pics on the internal memory? If so, download them and format the internal memory. Is your memory card almost full of pics? If so, download them and then format the card in the camera.

    Wont take a pic says memory card full when viewing memory card it says no images


    The camera can only see images if they are in the folder, the camera placed them in when they were taken. Try formatting the card in the camera.
    Menu/OK, Setup, Format, OK.
    All files will be deleted in the process, so make sure you have saved all images first.

    My camera says that the card is full, so i cant take pictures, yet i just deleted all the pictures that was stored on the memory card, what am I supposed to do?


    If you used your computer to delete the pics, your camera doesn't recognize this action and sees the card as full. Format the card in the camera to get back to square one.

    I have a coolpix s230, using the memory card to hold pics


    Try another memory card, memory card can go bad. If this does not solve the problem your camera has a fault in the SD memory card or the memory card board.

    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.

    Digital camara and memory card


    Basically picture files in memory card have corrupt data that's why computer doesn't recognize it.
    HP recommends following action...
    Close the HP Image Zone or HP Photosmart Software, disconnect the camera from the computer, and reset the camera. (can see this at HP Support)
    2nd option is to find some memory card data recovery software on internet and use it to correct data files in memory card.
    Thank you.

    Memory card formatting


    Unfortunately, there is no way to format your card without losing any saved pictures. Sometimes, if you insert your card into other cameras or printing kiosks at walgreens or target, it will work. it's a long shot though. Chances are, you may have to lose your saved pictures :(
