Question about SanDisk 2GB microSD Memory Card

1 Answer

I have a 2GB Sandisk memory card. It has about 400 pictures on it. It and my camera were working fine last night and now I can not view any of the pictures on the card. My camera will not even allow me to take pictures with this card in it, but works fine with other cards. My wii card reader says the card is unusable? Please help me, My pictures are very important.

    I have tried putting the 2GB card in three other readers and nothing. Can you give me an idea of how this happens. I have not used the camera since last night and nothing has happened to it. In fact it works fine if I put a different card in it. BTW, the link to Card Recovery, says cannot connect. Do you have any other info on this program or information on any others that I can try? Are these programs as good as paying someone to recover the info? Thanks

Welcome to Fixya!

Try using other usb card reader, see if it will give you the same error. If you get the same error, I am sorry to say but the card is already dead. Good news is, there are data recovery programs or software than you can use to recover lost, corrupted or damaged memory card.

One program that I have used before it Card Recovery. They offer a trial version which lets you see a preview of the photos before saving. You can purchase the full version for only $39.99. I believe this amount is nothing compared to the photos you have saved in your memory card.

Hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please feel free to come back.

Thank you for using Fixya!

    Multiple reasons why this happen. Here are some:

    • Card was pulled out while the camera is reading/writing on the card

    • Formatting the card via the computer instead of the camera.

    • Opening, deleting, renaming or moving files on the card while its contents are open on a computer.

    • Continually shooting and deleting, shooting and deleting photos.

    • Using a memory card from a different camera to another camera without formatting the card in the new camera.
    Try this link again.
    Paying someone to for file recovery is expensive. These type of programs are easy to use. Click on this link to give you more information about data recovery programs.

Some cameras cannot handle over 2GB memory cards. If it works fine with 2GB card - stick to that. If some other A620 you know operates with 4GB card, take yours to repairs.

Pictures stored on card, and unable to retreive them on camera

Have you tried accessing the pictures via a card reader connected to your PC. It is possible the card is damaged and you will not be able to recover your pics. But it is worth a try. If you do not have a card reader take the card to a camera shop and see if they can see and manipulate the pics to another card, then reformat the card and reinsert it to see if it then reads anmd writes.

My card won't work on my computer, what is wrong?

When you format the card, be sure to do it in the camera, as the camera firmware writes hidden files to the card.
When you insert the card into the card reader, be sure to set write-protect, so the contents cannot be corrupted.
I suspect what may have happened is that at some point there has been a conflict between files written to the card by the camera and the computer.

Computer won't read memory stick

SCMG - You won't be inserting it into your modem. But if the card fits snuggly and it seems to fit right, then you're probably where you need to be.

For all of you - it may be easier to connect the camera directly to the computer to download the pictures. All cameras come with the appropriate cable to connect the camera to a USB port. All you need to do is make the connection and then put the camera into "review" mode to view the pictures and Windows should automatically see the camera and ask if you want to download the pictures off of it.

You problem set your camera to use internal memory only. Set the memory function to memory card only and all pictures will go to the memory card until it is full. You can probably still transfer your pic files from internal memory to your card.

Locked Memory Card

I use a Nikon D300 and have Sandisk Compact Flash memory cards. i ahve not come across this problem but would suggest that you insert the memory card into your camera and reformat the memory card. This should clear any errors in the system BUT IT WILL ALSO WIPE ANY PHOTOGRAPHS YOU AHVE TAKEN when formating the memory card.
