Question about Olympus Camedia C-150 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera problem Hi, I see you did follow my advice , saved what you could, and the result was a corrupted memory card as I suggested. Normally on Fixya this is given a fixya mark, as it was a correct diagnosis - leading to a solution. By giving this mark, it shows a positive course of action for other to follow who have similar problems. I wish you to consider rating this as a fixya instead of a thanks for trying, as this mark is for comments that were tried but do not lead to a solution. Thank you.

Caannon ti1 error 30


Error 30 appears if the memory card is inaccessible. The cause is often a corrupted memory card resulting from an interrupted read/write operation often caused by a camera shutdown from a dead battery or removing the memory card while camera is on. Try a different card to see if it works.

Also, you can use a photo recovery program on the memory card or just reformat the card in your computer if there are no images you need to save on the card. Even after formatting, you can still use a recovery program to access photos on the card but be sure you don't use it again before you recover.

PICTURES


The problem is simple in nature but may turn out to be more complex than we like to think of it. Normally the pictures should have been saved to the memory card and furthermore they should still be there. However, in this case, if the camera asks you to format the card, it means that the files or the card itself becomed corrupted and the camera can't recognise any of it's files. In this situation, the camera assumes the card is brand new and unformatted (or corrupted/unreadable) and asks for a format. Most cameras use a file system called FAT16 or FAT32. This is a way to manage the space on a memory device (card in this case) and it's standardized with the computer world meaning if you for example take a picture save it on the card and put the card on your computer via a card-reader, the computer will read it normally. If viceversa you place a picture on the card, the camera will read it fine also. However in your case, if the camera says the card is corrupted or it asks you to format the card, there is a great chance the pictures were corrupted and are now unreadable. You should try to place the card on a computer with a card reader. If the computer says the disk is empty, then a data transmission problem between the camera and the card may have resulted in the corruption of those pictures. Format the card on your computer then place it into your camera and make some pictures to see if this was an isolated incident or still the camera takes pictures but doesn't store them correctly.

For those pictures at least, I think there is a veeery slim chance they are still there somewhere. Practically they are corrupted beyound repair, or even worse, they are simply gone. I'm sorry for telling you the bad news, the only thing i can help with now is to try to diagnosticate if this was an isolated incident or there are chances it ca happen again. Like i've told before, first format the card in your computer, then put it in the camera, then make some test pictures and try to see if you can copy them from the card to the pc. Let me know if something happens or if you need more help.

How to Recover Pictures From Fujifilm FinePix S700 Storage Media


With 7 mega pixel camera, 10x optical zoom, 2.5 LCD, picture stabilization mode, and i-Flash intelligent Flash, the Fujifilm FinePix S700 fulfills all the requirements of any photographer. The storage media (SD and xD memory cards) used in this camera allows the photographer to save audios, videos, and photos of different sizes. Damage in storage media can occur any time, resulting in fatal consequences, like inaccessibility of data saved in the memory card. In most cases, the photographer encounters an error message stating that the card is corrupted. To overcome such corruption scenarios, the photographer needs to restore the data from an updated backup. But all photographers do not create a backup on regular basis. For them, a third-party Camera recovery software acts as a boon and helps them recover the data.
As a real-world instance, you encounter the below error message while trying to view the pictures saved in your SD card (inserted in Fujifilm FinePix S700):
"CARD ERROR"
After the above error message pops up, the data saved in the SD card becomes inaccessible.
Cause:
Few main causes for the above error message are:
1.Incorrect SD card format.
2.Incompatible SD card.
3.Memory card corruption due to unexpected camera shutdown, virus infection, and interrupted read or write operation.
Resolution:
To resolve the above error message and to access the data saved in SD card, you will need to:
1.Use a compatible SD card.
2.In case of memory card corruption, format the card in Fujifilm FinePix S700 camera. Though formatting brings the card in reusable state, all the audio, video, and picture files get deleted. To recover the deleted data, you will need to choose a powerful Camera recovery software.
Such recovery tools use effective scanning methods to ensure complete Camera data recovery. These tools can be downloaded from the Internet and used by anybody. Such applications are safe as they harm the original data saved in the memory card.
Digital camera recovery software is a world-renowned Photo Recovery utility used for recovering data from almost every type of memory card. This software ensures complete recovery of digital files, irrespective of their size or type. Compatible with Windows and Mac OS X, the read only software also recovers data from other storage media, like Zip drives, hard drives, etc.

When i turn on my camera it says the memory card needs formatting i follow the instructions but it doesnt work and keeps saying to format the memory card. this happens over and over and i cannot take...


To understand the photo loss situation, consider a scenario: You format a memory card in Digital Camera, and start to capture some pictures. However, while capturing pictures, your camera shuts down due to low battery. Now, after recharging battery, when you try to access those photograph on the card, you receive the following error message on camera screen:

The Card requires formatting: Additionally, the camera is unable to capture any new photographs.

The main cause for the above error message is corruption of memory card due to conking of battery while a read/write operation was running.

These memory card needs to be formatted before you save any new pictures. It is always a good practice to take backup of card and format it before use. This enables you to fight with any damage done to the memory card and to erase the old data saved on the card. However, the probability of card getting corrupted again (after you have saved new data) still exists.

First try formating with an external SD Card reader connected at PC and test it.

When trying to review pictures taken the message unable to recognise files comes up and doesnt save the last picture taken.We have a x5 GE digital camera.This problem happens most of the time.


Hi

Sorry to hear of the problem with your GE X5 camera.

I would suggest you start by removing the memory card, placing it in a memory card reader attached to a computer. Download the SD Card Association formating program (http://www.sdcard.org/consumers/formatter/) then format the card.

This should solve any corruption issues the card could be suffering from which in turn could cause the problems you have.

Hope this helps

Regards

Lumix DMC-LC33 shows memory card error -format this card? Yes or NO..no matter the Sd card , if select yes- no results, if select no - no results.


This normally happens when the memory card gets corrupt. Hope you have pressed OK after selecting YES. Check whether the card is locked. SD card has a small Lock button on the top left. If this fails, buy a new SD card and format it in the camera before taking any image.
