Dear Adriana,

Try downloading your pictures through a USB2 card reader. I have found that some cards are not 100% compatible - a bit like computer memory: Unless the brand is tested and recommended by the manufacturer, you are never really sure until you try it out both in the camera and through computer interfaces. I strongly recommend Kingston Ram. A 2GB SD card is around $18 AUS and has a lifetime warrantee. If it is not compatible, you will get your money back.

I shot 200 pics w/Canon EOS rebel XT 8mp camera on a new San Disk Ultra 4GB card. All pics look like flash did not work. It was working and I've shot hundreds of pics in same place, same lighting, using...


The CF card has nothing to do with the information that is sent to it. It is just a recordable medium that stores what the camera sends to it. There is some other problem with the settings of the camera that caused the photos to be underexposed. Do you use RAW mode for capture of the images? If you do then the Canon RAW conversion software can batch process the photos to correct the exposure.

I have Sandisk Extreme III 4GB memory card why after i shooting photo the file is cannot read?


Make sure your camera is compatible with a 4GB flash card. Some only take 1 or 2 GB cards. If that isn't the issue, format your card inside the camera with the camera's format utility.

San Disk 2GB is saying it's full when it still has plenty of room


I didn't understand you weren't using it for photography. Here some more suggestions:

* Double check the SD card's Write Protection Switch to make sure it is unlocked.
* If your card reader is old it may need to be replaced. See if the card works properly in your camera. If you hook your camera to your MAC with its USB cable you should be able to upload and download files.

SanDisk Ultra 11 CompactFlash Card 4Gb says "Card not Initalized"


You may need to format the card. There should be a Format command in the Setup menu. To be more specific, one would need to know which model of Finepix camera you refer to.

Sandisk ultra 2 1.0gb will not download onto my computer?


Inspect the camera itself under good light with a keen eye. You may find a pin is bent, broken or missing in the flash card compartment. This would require the aid of a camera technician to fix. If this is not the case though, then perhaps the card has become corrupt or faulty. I would suggest purchasing a leading brand card reader(eg lexar or sandisk) as they often come with image recovery software to help in these situations. Good Luck!

Cannot retrieve photos from SanDisk Ultra 11 4GB


Card probably became corrupted. Try running a Memory Card Recovery Program. If that doesn't work take it to a place that'll do that type of thing professionally, a lot of electronics and computer stores do this for a small charge.

Did you go to "Start">>>"My Computer">>>"Flash Drive" ?
Also, some cameras create more than one folder and the names of the folders don't give you much indication of which one(folder) your pictures are in,so you have to search them all.

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.

Help...it want my pictures!!


I have a SanDisk 8G SD card that worked in my camera, but my card reader would not read, so I could not put the on my computer. I put the SD card back in the camera and could still view all of my photos, so I ran a cable from my camera to the computer (one end of the cable was USB and the other end was something smaller that would fit into the port on my camera, I don't know what it is called). The computer was able to read all of my photos through my camera, so I downloaded everything through the camera to the computer.
