Hello

OK, if the memory card itself is locked, you might sometimes get this error code. All you need to do is to take out the memory card and switch the lever on the left side to the unlock.

how do I format the card when it says card error - 6c99e31.jpg

If the error is still displayed after you did the above, you might want to try the card in another camera.

If the card works in another camera . the problem is with your card reader in your camera.

If you open you sd slot and look inside with a sharp light , you should be able to see on the left side of the slot there is a little copper or spring steel lever switch. This switch work as follows:

1. When no card is inserted / no write protection , the switch is open and thus the protection is off.
2. When locked card is inserted , the tab is depressed and tells the camera that the card is lock.

Contrary to popular belief ,the little tab on the sd card is not an electronic switch and does not physically influence the card operation itself. If you put a locked card into a camera without a sd lock switch , you would still be able to use the card normally.

It is incredible difficult to fix this switch because of space limitations in the sd card. Look into the sd slot and if you can see the switch , use a needle to pull the little tab down toward the base of the camera by about 2mm or until it works being careful not to bend it.

If this does not resolve your problem , there might be a short in the switch circuit and the camera will need to be disassembled to resolve this error. This should cost no more than $50.

Please feel free to contact me if you need further information

Kind regards
Andrea

When I turn the camera on I get the message "memory card error". The only button on the camera which then works is the menu button but it just brings up the screen and then the same error message. Yes, I...


You need to format the card in the camera. Go into the menu and scroll to "format" and follow the on-screen instructions. This will erase and initialize the card . To download pictures, the most trouble-free way is to use a card reader and download to a folder you create on your desktop.

Card Error


Are you getting this error with the card?

If so, insert the card into the computer. Make sure you get all the files off before you continue. Then go to my computer, right click on the drive, click properties, click the tools tab and click check now. Just do Automatically fix file system errors and click start. This should successfully find errors if present on the card and fix it. You may lose a picture or two if you don't transfer all of them first. Or you could format the card by right clicking on the card drive and clicking format.

If you get the error on the camera without the card in it, turn it on and click mode button twice to get to the picture display (it should be a black screen with "memory error" on top). Then press menu and use the 4-way button to go to the right for Setup. Then use the 4-way button to go down to format to format the camera.

This should fix it.

CARD ERROR--XD-picture card


I had the same problem; formatted it on the computer; still the same. I the got this info (below) from tomshardware site and it worked for me:
1. Turn the camera on (to Photography Mode, not Playback Mode).

2. Press the Menu/OK button.

3. Move left or right until you reach the Option Menu.

4. Move up to SET-UP and press the Menu/OK button.

5. There are 4 option screens. The Format option is in screen
number 1, so you should see it immediately.

6. Move down to Format and then either move right or press Menu/OK.

What does PICTURE ERROR mean? not in manual nor on line


Sounds like you will need to format the memory card as the card has become corrupted. This will permanently erase all the data from the card and then you will be able to use it again. To format the card: Press the Ok button - right arrow to Mode Menu - down arrow to Card tab - right arrow to card setup - right arrow to format option. You will see format yes or no. Choose Yes and press ok. This will clear the picture error message and the card can be used again.
