My laptop has a built in memory card reader. My camera uses a sony memory stick and to transfer pics to my laptop I have to use an memory stick adaptor. I have done this many times before with no problems but now when I put the card into the computer the computer sees the card but says it is not formatted. If I put the card back into the camera it works fine. I have also tried putting a SD card from another camera into the reader and it works normally, no problems. I have tried restarting with no luck. any help would be appreciated.
This happens due to some restirction on the memory card i faced the same problem all you have to do is just copy the pic on to the laptop or on any other laptop and then you can format this card however before u format copy the pic as it will delete the data from the card .
i did the same as did not work on my hp laptop and worked on lenovo laptop for my phone memory it is also called as registry problem of the memory card .
thanks try it out and please let me know

you'll need a card reader for this. Check in your closest computer store for SD Card Readers. They usually come as 5 in 1 or 7 in 1, so with that single device you can use practically all memory cards. This should be about $10-$20, there's no installation needed, you just plug it into the USB port and that's it. When you insert the card in the card reader your PC will recognize it as a new drive and then it's a simple matter of copying them off the card like you'd copy stuff off a USB key.
If you cannot connect your camera with a USB cable to the laptop, then there is another method.
Purchase a USB memory card reader, remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into the memory card reader and connect it to the USB port on the laptop. The laptop will see this as an external memory device, open this memory device and copy the picture files to the laptop. You can now transfer these picture to your picture book.
Some software programs monitor for removable drives which are not used. When you plug in your camera or memory card or memory stick, It comes up as a removable drive. My wife's laptop with Vista Home Basic had a problem between her secure memory stick and InCD. BSOD would cause restart the computer when stick was plugged in. I temporarily disabled InCD and memory stick works. Funny, though, her machine had no trouble with her camera. Go figure. Dave
Connect a card reader and insert the memory card to this card reader and you can transfer the pictures to your computer. Now most of the card readers have slots to insert all types of memory cards, you can have any card reader from a local electronic shop.
1. use a (usualy supplied) data cable... normaly a USB cable... it connects to your computer/laptop , Use a Photo utility program to "find" the camera. You should be able to view the pics stored in the camera.
2. If the camera pics are stored on a sim card then simply put that card in a multi card reader... (very inexpensive to purchase and standard on some late model PC's) and in most cases you can pull the pics directly from the card.
3. Take the camera directly to walmart or walgreen's photo station and they usualy can pull the pics directly from it.

mod# of camera and what model/make of your PC.
