Lost all memory on a 64gb sd micro card after formatting


No, you didn't loose memory. You just have to reformat it. When you do, check if you can change the total capacity with drop down menu, also try settings it to FAT32.

If not, you could use another computer or even a portable device like cellphone or camera to try and format it.

Don't worry, you cannot 'loose' the 64gb.

- Error message asking to re-format the flash card.

Issue: Memory card Error
Solution: Try a different memory card and/or Reformat memory card PowerShot A70


Formatting a CF Card You should always format a new CF card or one from which you wish to erase all images and other data.
caution_a70.gifPlease note that formatting a CF card erases all data, including protected images and other file types. Please check the contents of the CF card before formatting it.
  1. Turn the power on.

  2. Press the <MENU> button and select [ tools_icon.gif(Set up)] using direction_arrow_lt.gifor direction_arrow_rt.gif.

    format_menu_1.gif

  3. Select format_icon_a70.gif(Format) using direction_arrow_up.gifor direction_arrow_down.gifand press the <SET> button.

    format_menu_2.gif

  4. Select [OK] using direction_arrow_lt.gifor direction_arrow_rt.gifand press the <SET> button.

    format_menu_3.gif

    • To cancel formatting instead, select [Cancel] and press the <SET> button.
    • The capacity of the CF card displayed after formatting will be less than the rated capacity of the CF card. This is not a malfunction of the CF card or camera.


  5. Press the <MENU> button.
note_icon_a70.gif
  • If the camera does not work properly, the inserted CF card may be malfunctioning. Reformatting the CF card may solve the problem.
  • When a non-Canon brand CF card is malfunctioning, reformatting it may solve the problem.
  • CF cards formatted in another camera, computer or peripheral device may not operate correctly. When that happens, reformat the CF card with this camera.

Sony memory stick PRO duo 4gb card says memory full when empty


I would suggest formating the memory card through the options on your camera. If you reformat the memory card and you still get the same error then you have a bad card. Just like anything else the cards will break down internally over time.

Memerory card error


the memory card may need to be reformatted. if you have an external card reader, plug it in, right click (in windows) and select format.

you might be able to format it through the camera if you don't have a memory card. connect the camera to the computer, and treat it like an external card reader.

if reformatting doesn't work, sounds like the card went bad.

Can only take about 5 photos at a time and then only after reformatting the memory card.  After about 5, I get one of two error messages "camera cannot display image" when I try to playback or "memory card...


The card may be done. Thay have a limited lifetime, and if it was a cheap card in the first place.......

Reformatting does not fix this, the formatting software will scan for bad sections of the card and exclude them form the format.

It could be that there is a problem with formatting from the camera. But a card reader to fit to the PC and download the card formatting program from the official SD standards website. If your card can be properly formatted then this will do it.

How do i reformat a sandisk 2GB microSD card. keeps saying failed


Are you formatting it in a cell phone, a digital camera, or on your computer?

If you're formatting on a computer, be sure you have the microcard inserted into the adapter correctly. I would suggest you format the card in the device that you're using it in most.

Memory card error


The problem seems to be that the card has been formatted incorrectly (probably by your computer, if you used it in a card reader?). Unfortunately the camera can't reformat it itself, and default computer formatting is incompatible. You'll want to download the program Lowlevelformat.exe from this website--http://olypan.quotaless.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=8, install it, reformat your memory card with it, and the camera will be happy with it again.
