Question about Digital Cameras

1 Answer

A-data MMC 1GB

Hi!
I got a problem with my memory card from my camera. When I put it in my camera and trying to access photos it says 'No image' but when trying to take a photo it says 'Memory card full'. When trying to put it in card reader, PC recognizes the removable drive but when trying to explore it, it says ' insert disk into removable disk...'. Also seeing properties for removable disk I see Free space: 0 GB, Used space: 0GB.
Anyone thinks there's hope for my suddenly disappeared photos?

How to get images off the memory card


Yes it is possible (although some memory cards are easier than others). You need a memory card reader with the correct slot for SD or SD/MMC cards, depending on your card. (There are lots of memory card types but most will include an SD slot.) You can get USB or internal card readers (which fit a 3 1/2 drive bay desktops) at most computer parts stores (Cyberguys.com, TigerDirect.com, etc). They range in price from ~$10-$60 dollars depending on the number of slots and other features.

Once you have the reader installed, place your card in the appropriate slot and look for it to come up as a new disc on your Computer. Open your Photo program and access the images from the disc. If it doesn't show up, there is a problem with the card or the reader.

In some cases, reinserting the card in the camera and using the camera to computer USB cable works better. I'm not sure why - it might be a formatting issue. (The card reader might look for the data in a different pattern than the one that the camera formatted the card with.)

I hope this helps.

Some Macintosh computer systems support using a digital camera using SD/MMC card in two modes: 'Digital Camera' mode and 'Disk Drive' mode. At times, when try to use the camera using SD/MMC card in 'Digital Camera', it is not recognized by iPhoto or Image Capture. To solve such behavior, you might need to reformat the digital SD/MMC card and use backup to restore the lost files. But sometimes, you observe certain issues while restoring from backup or the backup is not available. To cope up with such situations, you should use Photo Recovery application to recover the lost files efficiently.
For an instance, consider that you perform following sequence of steps:
  • You connect your digital camera that uses SD/MMC card to a Macintosh computer in 'Disk Drive' mode
  • You switch to 'Digital Camera' mode and observe that the camera is no longer recognized by iPhoto or Image Capture
Similar behavior is also observed if you use FireWire or USB card reader to connect the SD/MMC card to your Macintosh computer and try to switch to 'Digital Camera' mode.
Solution
To prevent such errors from occurring, you should continue using the camera in 'Disk Drive' mode. You can then successfully access it through iPhoto or Image Capture. However, to solve the existing problem of the SD/MMC card, follow these steps:
  • Connect the camera in 'Disk Drive' mode or use FireWaire or USB card reader to access the card.
  • Backup all the files to your system
  • Use your digital camera to reformat the card.
Note: A digital camera using SD/MMC card uses different protocols in different modes so that to communicate with the Macintosh system. But it can only be accessed through Desktop, when connected in 'Disk Drive' mode.
After reformatting the SD/MMC card, sometimes you observe that backup is not valid and couldn't provide the required results. In such situations, you are suggested to use Digital Photo Recovery products to recover them. Photo Recovery utilities are competent tools to scan a logically crashed media using powerful scanning algorithms. Also, they provide interactive user interface that allows easy implementation

I have a brand new Canon PowerShot SD750 camera, I have a sundisk imback 1gb memory card in the camera. I took a bunch of VERY IMPORTANT photos over the past two weeks and suddenly the camera says...


Hi ,
You could try this Card recovery software - free to download CLICK HERE

If the card is new and still under a manufacturers guarantee - I would try for a full refund on it. They do fail with increasing regularity, so in future I would opt for smaller capacity cards.

I have not found out yet if the failures are due to mechanical faults, handling damage, electrostatic discharges or simply instability of the chip. In theory they should last as long as other slid state chips - but problems are reported here daily. If you can give any details of possible reasons please do.Due to the unprotected contacts, I would opt for electrostatic discharge - from acrylic clothing.

You should be able to recover at least half of the recorded data, but I make no promises if any can actually be recovered.

Take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. Here's some freeware photo recovery software that should be what you're looking for:
