Memory card is full and when I plug in the USB cord and turn on the camera I get a message that my device is not connected or is busy, or that it contains no pictures!!


Causes of memory card corruption
  • Turning off a camera before an image is completely written to the memory card.
  • Removing the memory card from a camera while an image is being written to the card.
  • Removing the card from a memory card reader while files are still being transferred to a computer.
  • Batteries conking out as files are being transfered directly from the camera to a computer. Note: always make sure you have fully charged batteries before transferring images.
  • Removing the card from a card reader while folders and files from the card are open on a computer.
  • Opening, deleting, renaming or moving files on the card while its contents are open on a computer.
  • Using a memory card which has not been formatted in the camera. Use the delete/erase function when needed, however a card should be regularly formatted.
  • Formatting a card in a computer instead of the camera.
  • Inserting a second memory card into a card reader before closing and removing the first when viewing images on the card from a computer.
  • Taking photos when camera batteries are nearly empty.
  • Taking photos too rapidly so the camera can not complete writing one image before starting the next.
  • Continually shooting and deleting, shooting and deleting images when the card is full.
  • Letting a memory card get too full before downloading the images to a computer or storage device. Cards that are too full may overwrite the card headers.
  • Using a memory card from one camera in a different camera without formatting it in the new camera first.

What can I do to rescue wanted data from formatted memory card?


Hi Christina
This is why we make a backup file!
There is a possibility that only the file allocation directory has been erased. Leaving the data intact. (computers erase the index & leave the book) Depends on the Phone manufacturers type of erase.
You will have to have an adapter that allows the memory card to plug in to the USB port on a computer. Then there are utility programs available to copy or backup or recover the files.
You would probably be better off dropping into a computer shop with good technicians that have these recovery utilities.
You won't forget to do a backup every month from now on Eh!

Good Luck
Cheers
Trevor

Deleting photos of my camera


Your camera creates folders on the SD card to hold the images. It puts about 100 images in each folder. (See page 111 in the User Guide.) When you erase images, it may only be erasing the images in one folder. But your computer still sees the images in the other folder(s). To completely erase all images, use the "Format" function (see pages 25 - 26 in the User Guide). To completely clear it, use the Low Level Format option. You can download the User Guide here.

I want to erase a video, but not "erase all images"


Careful, the way you're doing it would actually erase everything. Use that way only after you've downloaded all your pictures and videos to your computer.

The way to erase a single image or video is to go into picture/video review mode. Advance so that you can see the video you want to delete on your LCD screen. Then press the "trashcan" button on the back of your camera once. It may ask you "delete this video?". Select "yes".

Downloading the photographs


To download without the software, you will need either the usb cord that came with the camera, or a memory card reader for your computer. For the first step, plug the camera into the computer and camera via the usb cable provided. put the camera in playback mode and turn it on. If you use a memory card reader, remove the card from the camera and insert it into the proper slot on the reader.
Now for PC users - go to 'my computer' (vista its just 'computer') and under 'media with removable devices' you should see the camera come up (or memory card folder). double click, and then you should see a folder that says DCIM. Click and drag that folder onto your desktop. Congrats, you just transfered your photos. Now the folder DCIM on your desktop should be opened and the folders within DCIM contain your images. Sort the photos in whatever way makes sense to you (most likely to be in my pictures (under my documents)). Be sure to delete the DCIM folder off the desktop AFTER you moved all of the images into their proper folders...otherwise next time you try to do this, there will be a conflict with folders named DCIM. This method keeps the images on your memory card. If you would like to remove them, after you re-insert the card into your camera, turn on the camera, press menu, go to the set-up screen (yellow) and go to format - this will erase every picture on your card and make a new slate for when you take new pics.
