If you have the pictures on the camera(memory card)
try to transfer pictures first using a cardreader. after you transfer all pictures to your computer you can now try to format the memorycard and try it again.

note: it will not work if the memorycard you're using was formatted on a computer before with a fat system and you are now trying to have it read on a computer on an ntfs system.

Card not initializing then wont format


Hi
It sounds like the card is faulty (it does happen). I had one that acted similarly. You could try using the card in another camera to check - I have a card that works OK in Olympus camera but not at all in Fuji!
Best of luck

I turn on my camera and it states "memory card error", and I don't want to lose my pictures I have stored on it. Is there a way to recover the pics without reformatting and deleting the pics?


Have you tried connecting the SD card to the PC?
Make sure you can do that, Also, After you transfer them off, Make sure the slot the SD card fits into isn't dusty, and, If it still doesn't function, Re-Format the card after you've taken the images off.

I have a Panasonic DMC-F27 digital camera using a SanDisk. I keep getting "disc error format yes or no". I don't want to lose my pictures, so should I select yes or no? Thank you


For sure if you select yes, you will lose your pictures. Formatting erases everything from your card and you cannot get them back.

Memory card problem


The only solution left is to get a card reader and insert the card in the card reader.

when the card is detected it will show a removeable drive in My Computer. Right click on the removeable drive and click on properties....now click on the the tab which says Tools......now under error checking click on Check Now......now click both the option that is Automatically fix the system errors and Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors.

After the scan is complete the card will work fine.

Memory card problem


Assuming your camera acts like a removable drive when connected to the PC try the following.

  1. Right click the removable drive(your camera) in my computer and go properties>tools>error checking>tick both boxes>ok
  2. Wait till it finishes and check if you can now view the contents of the card. And copy to safe place straight away.
  3. Try http://www.officerecovery.com/freeundelete/ to recover any deleted files or fragments of damaged files.
  4. Let me know if any of this works.

Format Error


First option would be to attempt to read the disk in another DVD player, for example on a PC. If that succeeds then transferring the data can be done via the PC. Another thing to try is to reset your Camcorder - refer to the manual to locate the switch and then try again. If neither works then re-formatting is probably the only answer. Always format the disks in the camcorder - not elsewhere.Good luck.
