    I just started having the same problem. I read the manual and the card that I was using wasn't on the list of cards that has been tested to work with my Nikon. The card I had first was from Kodak. I am now trying Sandisk. It is working now. I'm still a little leary that it will start acting up like the Kodak card.

Hi,
I've seen quite a few problems regarding memory cards recently.

Most of the time it is the card at fault as it just does not store data anymore. I haven't yet determined if it's time/ use/ temperature or handling which is causing the faults.

Can you describe what happened prior to the card not working as it may help solve future problems?

Some older cameras cannot use the newer - larger cards (even though they fit), and some cards won't record panoramic data.

Try resetting the camera first. - Remove batteries and card for 10 minutes, then reload them.
If you normally use a PC to download the pictures, see if you can access the pictures from there.

If half have gone, or are corrupted, it's time for a new memory card. Films were 1 shot, now cards only last a few years, but still saves you £ / $ in the long term.

If the new card doesn't work either, you will need to re-install the camera software (or Driver). This should be on a CD or you can go to their website to download it free.

Thanks for using Fixya! If this solves the problem, please rate as such. Thanks.

I have this problem with my minolta Z3. When I use a Scandisk +-258MB, he's doing fine, when I use a newer card (other than scandisk) from 2 or 4GB, I get the message.

A friend told me older pieces have difficulties using bigger cards, she can max use 512MB on here older piece... ?

Have downloaded cd file but unable to download pictures via usb to pc


What make and model camera? If it uses a memory card of some type, consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

Try another card, and look for scratches or damage on the gold strips on the card. Check the manual to see which way it goes in the camera.

Receiving "card locked" message and unable to take


Take the memory card out of your camera and look at it. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

If that doesn't work, try another card.

Picture error message on olympus 1200


Sounds like you will need to format the memory card. This will permanently erase all the data from the card and then you will be able to use it again. To format the card: Press the Menu button - right arrow to setup - right arrow to format option. You will see format yes or no. Choose Yes and press ok. This will clear the Picture error message and the card can be used again. The picture error message indicates that this image is now corrupted and unable to be viewed through the camera.
