How you get deleted photos


free software to recover your files on a memory card:
http://www.memorycard.freedatarecoverysoftware.org
www.cardrecovery.com www.wondershare.net with free trail
www.cardrescue.com with free evaluation version
Perhaps the free software shows you the files are still there, but to save them, you have to pay. Just try another link.
Never save to recovered files on the memory card itself, till all the pictures are recovered.
Keep the memory card locked till you have everything back.

I cant tranfer my photos from a memory card to my computer


Most of the Still cameras do not require driver or software to transfer images now a days.


Once you connect the Camera to the computer, you will get the Camera as a removable drive under My Computer. You can open the removable drive to see the pictures stored in the Camera/Memory Card.


If the Operating System installed in your Computer still needs a driver, you may use the Memory Card slot on the Computer to transfer the pictures. Please follow the steps to transfer pictures using Memory Card Reader in the Computer:


- Remove the Memory Card from the Camera.

- Insert it in the Memory Card slot in the Computer.

- Open the pop up window or find out the removable drive under My Computer.

- Copy the required files to a folder in the Computer.


Note : Most of the Notebooks comes with its own Memory Card Slot. If it does not, you may get one from the market without much spending.


Thanks for understanding.


Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Hi i have a fujifilm finepix S1 pro, was working yesterday, today came to putting memory card in and it wouldnt work 'card not initialised', tried formatting the card on the pc a few times didnt...


1. You should always format memorycards for cameras IN the camera itself.

2. Try another memorycard and check if all is working fine.

3. If you get the same problem, check if the memorycard is well seated into your
camera. If so, your camera may need service.

How do i unlock my memory card its not allowing me to take photos.


I am assuming that your camera uses and SD card to store the pictures.
If you remove the memory card from the camera, you should see a little slider on the side of the card that says "lock," it is easy to accidentally lock SD cards.
I have attached a picture to show you what a locked SD card looks like.\:codyrt.jpg
Here is another image showing the card in the unlocked position: codyrt_0.jpg

Olympus SP800UZ Digital Camera Media card will not lock into card slot, it comes right back out!


Put in another SD or SDHC memorycard to test if it is the camera or the memorycard which is faulty. Are you sure you put in the correct type of card? Only SD / SDHC will fit correctly in the camera.

Taking pictures


Yes you sure can. That is the best way. The internal Memory only holds 7-15 pictures. You must use the memory card. Normally the slot for it is under you Batteries.

Samsung digimax4010 memorycard locked cant take pictures


To fix this, remove the SD card from your camera. Look on the side and you will find a little switch. One end of the switch says locked the other end says unlocked. Move the switch from locked to unlocked. Replace it in your camera and turn it back on.

Hello

If the card works in another camera or another card doesn't work in your 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
