Question about Canon PowerShot A520 Digital Camera

1 Answer

I went to check how much space I had left on my memory card and when I went to exit the screen I did not realize that I pressed ok to "Format Memory Card" and all my pictures were instantly cleared! I cant see them and I think I might have deleted them. I heard since I didn't actually press "delete" they might still be stored somewhere on my memory card. Please help me! These are all my pictures of my first ever trip to Italy!

My memory card is not opening


Your card may not be formatted -or- it is and it;s a proprietary format. If you want to format it, here is the instructions (for Windows):
Put your card into your computer (some have a slot or else use a card reader). Right click on that drive after it appears in My Computer and select Format; set the File System drop-down to NTFS (better file storage space) or FAT32 (more compatibility in older operating systems) and click Start.

I have nokia n73. there is a problem in its use. whenever i use it , it gives the message of memory full and asks me to delete some data. please tell me some solution.


The phone's internal memory and memory card may be running out of space. Try to delete unnecessary files and free some memory space. Go to Menu>Tools>File Manager. Select the folder or file you want to delete and scroll left or right to switch from the phone's internal memory to the memory card.

Format the memory card and the phone's internal memory if the problem is not resolved above. But it will erase all saved data on both memory.

Memory Card Formatting Procedure
  1. Go to MENU > TOOLS > MEMORY.
  2. On the memory card menu press OPTIONS.
  3. Scroll to Format memory card.
  4. Press Select.
  5. Select Yes
  6. Once the formatting is complete, remove the memory card.
Phone Memory Formatting Procedure
  1. On your phone dial *#7370#.
  2. Press Yes then enter your phone lock code. Default code is 12345.
  3. Formatting is complete when the phone restarts. Insert the memory card and format it again.

Cards not working with camera


If you used the SD/MMC memory card in another brand of camera or device, you may need to format the card in your new EasyShare digital camera. (You may have noticed a "Memory Card Needs Formatting" message when you inserted the card.) CAUTION: Formatting deletes all pictures and videos, including those that are protected. Removing a card during formatting may damage the card. To format the SD/MMC memory card or the internal memory of the camera: Transfer images to the computer before formatting the memory card. Press the camera Menu button. Highlight SETUP MENU, and then press the OK button. Highlight FORMAT, and then press the OK button. Highlight an option - MEMORY CARD (deletes everything on the card), CANCEL (exits without formatting), or INTERNAL MEMORY (deletes everything in internal memory). Press the OK button. Highlight Continue, and then press the OK button. Wait until formatting is finished before removing the card. When formatting is complete, the SETUP MENU is displayed. Press the Menu button to exit the menu.
