Hi,

Try to reformat the card. This should free up all the space.

Deleted a picture, now it says unrecognized file format. How do I remove this?


You can recover pictures from your camera using advanced Remo data recovery tool. With the help of this tool I was able to perform picture recovery from memory card. So you can try it.

How do I transfer pics from my pc back on to my fuji S5700 camera


You'll need to use a card reader. Once the memory card is in a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB), the card will appear to the computer as another external hard drive, and you can copy files to it the same way you usually copy files.
Be aware that if you've done any editing of the pics (opening a pic in a photo editor and then saving it without doing anything counts as editing), the camera most likely won't display it.

Once the pictures have gone from the camera to the computer a different code or tag is used so the computer programing can read it it's a one way ticket from the camera to the computer hard drive but not back. Once the file is opened altered (by deleting images) the camera firmware can not read the file.

First of all, why on earth would you keep 1000 pics on the memory card? They are not meant for storage....they can be easily corrupted and you could lose your pics. You need to get a card reader and use it to download your pics. Then, format the card in the camera for a fresh start and download and format on a regular basis from now on. 5981c0d.jpg

Format and Check SD card


Purchase an inexpensive card reader such as the Ativa, available at Staples and Office Depot for $9.95. Put your memory card with the photos on it into the reader and plug it into a USB port on your computer. Windows will recognize it as another drive and assign it a drive letter. Using any graphics program, or Windows Explorer, navigate to that drive, open the file containing the pics, click select all, and copy the pics to a file on your computer. Make sure that all the pics have transferred or copied to the new file. Replace the card back into your camera and format the card so it is empty and ready to receive new pics. FYI: Less than 1 gig memory cards are available on ebay for dirt prices. Also, go to the camera manufacturers website and see if they have a firmware update for your camera that allows larger than 1 gig cards to be used. I had to do that for my Fuji S700 so I could use 4 gig cards. It used to max out at 2 gigs. If this has solved your problem please rate it accordingly. Good luck.

Lost pics


Hello

Looks like you have managed to corrupt your memory card, this is normally caused by the card being taken out of a camera/computer while data is still being written to the card.

You may be able to recover the images using a file recovery program.

You could try some of the free ones they seem to work ok from my experince.

Trying to upload pics on my camera


It has changed the format of the picture some how.When you open the pictures on your computer you had to have deleted the memory card.Before you put them back on the memory card pay attention to the name of the file.Copy the name your camera has called the file.The last three letters of the file is the key .

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.
