Serious problems due to memory card

After being exposed to heat conditions, my A95 acts crazily when I try to use its Lexar memory card...I can see my pics are still inside it, but what´s the best softwre to recover all them? What should I do after that...to format it or send it to a trash box immediately?

    Dear Valeria:



    I would need a bit more specific information on what you mean by "acting crazy" to offer suggestions on your camera, however, if you need to recover images from a memory card, I can suggest a free program that I use from Zero Assumption Software that has worked pretty well for me and is very easy to use.



    Just download the program at www.z-a-recovery.com, attach your card reader to you computer with your memory card installed, and run the program. It will simply ask you to chose the drive you're restoring data from (point it to your reader), and where you want to restore the images to (point it where you want). Then click next and it begins analyzing and restoring your photos.



    As far as the card is concerned I would recommend formatting it in your camera and holding on to it to see if there is a camera problem or a card probem first.



    If you can comment more specifically on what the camera is doing I might be able to help you there as well.



    Hope this helps.



    Sincerely,

    HeavyDLB

It's no problem at all to get them back. Please see this post for several free software that you can download. You'll need to use a card reader with these programs though:

And yes, format the card in your camera after you've recovered the pics.

I just inserted a new 8GB memory card but it tells me ''OUT OF MEMORY'' I tried to format it but still gives me the same message. Why is that and what can I do about it please?


The memory card you are trying to use in the camera is not supported. This camera is an older technology that can not recognize the large 8 GB memory capacity of the card. In fact, the largest approved card your camera will recognize is 1 GB.

The list of approved memory cards was obtained from the Nikon Site directly, and pasted below for your convenience.

Nikon has tested the following cards and approved their use in the Coolpix 5700:

CompactFlash memory cards:
SanDisk SDCFB series 16 MB, 32 MB, 48 MB, 64 MB, 96 MB, and 128 MB
Lexar Media 4× USB series 8 MB, 16 MB, 32 MB, 48 MB, 64 MB, and 80 MB
Lexar Media 8× USB series 8 MB, 16 MB, 32 MB, 48 MB, 64 MB, and 80 MB
Lexar Media 10× USB series 128 MB and 160 MB
Lexar Media 40x USB WA series 256 MB*
Microtech International Digital Flash Film 1GB*
Delkin eFilm 650MB Pro*
Ritz Big Print 8x 256MB* (Edge Code 0E1B)

Microdrive cards:
DSCM-10512 512 MB
DSCM-11000 1 GB

Please rate this reply if it helped you out. Good luck!

I purchased a 4GB memory card for use in my A95. I occasionally get a 'corrupted file' error message. Is it possible the card is too big for this model? The card was formatted.


Yes, 4GB card is too big for Canon A95 camera as its hardware does not support such big memory.
Put max 2GB or less memory card in this camera.
Thanks.

I am using a LEXAR memory card. I formatted it on


Are you using the camera connected to the computer via usb cord? Try using a separate card reader instead.

Tried to unlock Lexar SD 2GB and Lexar SDHC 4 GB - No luck


First of all, the 4GB card will never be able to work in your camera. Check on its face. It likely says SDHC, and SDHC cards as this format came out after your camera was designed (I know it looks exactly like a normal SD card, but it's not).

Now the 2GB card should work with your camera as it is a standard SD card. Remove the card from your camera. Look on the side of the card for the tiny slide switch, and slide it to the other "unlocked" position. Reinsert it in the camera, and see if that corrects the problem.

A95 LCD screen black and unable to take photos


There are quite a few of us with symilar problem, but the screen is not completely black: it has some purple or pinkish color when facing light. Old pics and menu can still be viewed. I noticed 4 symilar threads on Canon A95 within the last 5 mins without any search, just looking at the top questions.

Memory Card Error


Try checking the card slot in the camera. If it is dusty, then it might need cleaning.

Also, the problem could the the memory cards. If you are using a cheap brand, then they might not properly.

I recommend Lexar, Panasonic or SanDisk SD cards.
