You may have never formatted your memory card. This can eventually lead to errors like you're experiencing. First download all available pictures from the card. Next turn on the camera in preview mode. Press the menu button, then select the "tools" menu (second one from left). Go down the menu to the menu item stating your memory card's capacity and select it. Next select "Yes" to format. Note that this will also totally erase your card, so again make sure to FIRST download your pictures.

You can run a check on that memory with Active File recovery to see if the pictures are there or not. If they are there you can get them back.

The free demo o this software allows only file smaller than 64kb to be recovered or you can use the online version which might not have the limitation but it might not see he memory stick not even if the camera is connected to the computer. There's possibility thought that it might see it if you connect it before starting the online version, the demo should see the card if it's connected.

You will need to use a flash card reader with this software. If you don't have one, get one, they're cheap:

File error


I have seen this problem with generic SD memory cards so it could be a faulty memory stick.  Try to get a replacement.  If you want to try to recover the pictures you have taken, I suggest Zero Assumption Recovery (Google for it). Check to see if it is compatible with your camera before downloading.

Viewing photos on camera after downloading


your memory card has a virus! try formatting using camera. make it a habit that whenever you reinsert the memory card in your camera format it first before taking shots, this will erase everything including virus!
