    It is all good now, I think the solution was in downloading the camera software, even though iphoto was doing its job . however the movies didnt transfer over. I dont know what the solution to that is.

Try sending the picture as a single file dont drag the whole folder on it since the camera doesnt have option to open folder

try selecting all photos at one time by selecting or highlighting it all and drag it on the memory cards window.

Do not use the camera to put files back from mac, use a card reader

    Buy an usb card reader for your card, and connect to MAC, it is much safer than moving a big amount of files using camera. Usually you need to drag the files into a specific folder into card. Take a picture with camera and check in which folder it is when you connect to Mac with card reader.

    Download movies separately, or explore other folders if you cannot find movie files, movies are bigger than pictures and can give you some problem.

Memory Card is saying no image file when i put it into camera


Copy all the photos from the card onto your computer if you haven't already done so. Put the card into the camera and format it. From now on, format the card each time you finish downloading pictures to the computer instead of simply erasing the pictures you don't want.
Repeated shooting and erasing will inevitably lead to this problem. Formatting prevents it.

My memory card won't capture images. It worked initially, but when I erased all the pictures, it stopped capturing images. I get file error messages.


You may have deleted a system file. Easiest way to fix it if this is the problem is to reformat the card in the camera. Insert the card and look for the utilities section and then reformat card or format card. I don;t have the manual in front of me to give you the exact page but all digital cameras can do this. This will setup the card and put any missing files back where they belong again and you should be up and running. Will take longer to read this than it takes to do it too ;-]

You used the computer's operating system to delete the pictures. Now, your camera doesn't recognize what happened since it uses a completely different operating system. To get the card working again, you must format it in the camera. This will erase it so download any pics you want to save first.

I cannot play back images in my Sony cyber shot camera.


Please provide more information.

1. Does it have that error all the time and is unable to play back ANY images? Or does it say that for only some images?

It sounds like a corrupt memory card affecting one or more images that are not in the correct format for the camera to read it.

2. Did something lead up to this condition?
For example did anything happen to the camera? Was it dropped, got wet? or someone was messing with the memory card taking it in/out/in/out while the left sitting around?

Here are some potential solutions.
Sorry it's not a really short solution but there are several things that can cause this.

1. Re-seat the memory stick. So remove it and put it back in.
It should go in smoothly and all the way. See if it works then.

2. Try a different memory stick, take a photo or two and see if it plays back.

3. Erase the offending file.
A File Error can be caused by taking a photo with really low batteries and the camera shuts off halfway through saving the photo generating a corrupt file.

It often won't get over that on it's own so you have to use a computer to erase the offending file.

3. Fix corrupt card by reformatting it.
You could use a USB flash card reader (or connect the camera via USB) and retrieve your photo's to the computer so you have them. Then reformat the card and it's often OK again at that point.
If the problem comes back it's probably a faulty card.

Other causes:
A File Error can also be caused by loaning out the memory card and someone put it in a different camera for a while. Then when you get it back it can't read the new files on it. In that case use a computer to remove the extra files or backup your files and reformat the card.

Use the camera to format the card because Sony likes to do things their own way and they don't play well with others (with regard to compatability of batteries, memory cards, cables,,,etc) Their products don't fit or work with other company's products.

One Last check you could do is use a memory card reader (or the camera via USB if it mounts the card as a drive letter) and run a full Windows CheckDIsk on the card, to test it for errors.

Says memory card is full, when it is not. I just moved a bunch of pictures to my mac, but it says it is still full.


THe card must now be put back into the camera and reformatted. Just find format in the menu of the camera and it will ask you if you want to erase the contents of the memory card. Answer yes and your card will be erased and reformatted and ready to go.

Initializing card on fujifilm e500


You need to reformat the card. Find the menu item, probably under 'System', or something like that, and reformat it. You should reformat your card every time you download you photos anyway, else the card can fail. If it won't reformat dump it and get another one.

I have just cleared all my pics off scim card by mistake. i was resetting camera


did you reformat the card or just erase them? If you just erased them they can be recovered. If you reformatted the card you will not be able to recover them.
To recover 'accidently' erased images go to http://lexar.com/software/image_rescue2.html to download Image Rescue. It works!!
There are lots of others that do the same thing from other companies, but they will usually charge you. I trust Lexar and I believe it was free! Fortunately only had to use this once - but it worked! Good luck!

My camera erased my pictures


These cameras have an internal store and also can use a card. So, when you add a card, it is writing to that store and only shows you the pictures stored there unless you change the device settings or remove the card.
If so, the images you have on the EasyShare One internal store may be originals
Another possibility is that you did a BragBook synch to EasyShare and you might be able to see these images in your 'Favorites' view. The 'Camera Favorites' or BragBook pictures are a smaller version of original images, to allow you to carry more pictures with you to share, but these pictures may be a lower resolution version of the images you took. They would be sufficient for printing 4x6 pictures, but not enlargements.
Change to Favorites mode to see if they show up that way.
Good luck!

aconnect camera with usb cable to computer.
your computer should see the new hardware and recognize it, install a driver on its own. this assumes you are running a later model os, like windows xp, xphome or pro. a pop up window may open and ask you if you want to download the images. you can follow this through and have them downloaded, or you can close the box, right click on the start icon, select 'explore' and scroll down the list of items until you get to the camera. click on it, and follow through clicking until you have a file folder with jpegs in it. then click on 'select all' under edit at the explorer tool bar. then click copy. then select the drive you wish to copy the files to, and create a new folder and name it as you like. then right click on the folder and select 'paste'. your images will start to download to the new folder.
they will also be on the camera until you remove them.
once you are certain you have downloaded all the images or at least the ones you want, you can go to the menu of the camera and reformat the memory card. it will quickly erase (many times faster than you can erase the images) the stored data and ready the card for reuse.
alternately you can get a card reader for usb2 if you have a usb 2 slot on your computer. remove your compact flash card from the camera and put it into the usb card reader. the computer will once again go through the process of finding the hardware, asking you if you want to download the images. you can again elect to either download all from there, or go to explore and do the same thing, but this time looking for the card reader. it might appear as a multiple of new drive letters. one of them will have canon eos as a label and a file named dcim most likely. copy your images off, and when you are certain they all came off, either delete the images from the card, or do a reformat in the camera.
good luck
