SOURCE: Memory Card Error

I am assuming that the camera continues to work fine with other cards, so the problem is only with the card, not with the camera.

To try to retrieve pictures, get yourself a USB SD card reader&writer (under $10 on eBay), plug it into your PC, and see if the files are readable that way.

If the files are readable, find the folder with JPG files, and simply move them to computer.

If the computer starts freezing every few seconds while you are accessing the card, or the move process is dealing with one file for a very long time (over 10 minutes), the card has physical problems, and there is a chance that things may not be recovered. Try moving each file separately. I did a quick search for you: "recover sd card files" - I found a few shareware utilities that would try to recover corrupted files, starting with "Card Recovery 3.50".

Once you are done with the recovery, determine if the card is usable in the future. Format the card using the camera (look for the option in Menu), take it out and use USB card reader to fill up the card with any junk from you computer, and then try to copy it from the card again onto your computer (create and use a junk folder). If this fails, look for a way for way to exchange the card under warranty, if you have any. Otherwise, the card may not be compatible with the camera (although unlikely). Test it by taking lots of test video and test pictures just to fill up the card, and try to read it. If everything is fine, and you want to take the risk, the problem may be a one time issue and will never happen again. Otherwise, use the card for something else.

Good luck!

Use USB card reader&writer to retrieve the pictures directly from the card.

Reformat the card from the camera. You didn't specify camera model but every digital camera has a menu to format media.

If you don't succeed try to connect your camera to the computer and read the photos.

If that doesn't succeed either take your camera to service.

Sounds like the camera does not support SDHC. Check manual to see if this camera supports high capacity SD cards.

I have had a similar error which turned out to be a corrupted memory card. It was replaced under warranty with no questions asked. Causes may be static electricity discharge or a high humidity/temperature combination. Either way get a new card.

Took pictures with m dane-elec 8gb then it told e i need to format.will i lose all my pictures


Yes, formatting removes all the data. However, the photos might be on the camera's internal memory and not the SD card.

If possible, connect the camera to a computer and copy the photos onto the computer, then you can safely format the SD card.

If you cannot connect the camera to a computer, you will need to take out the SD, and verify that the pictures are still on the camera. If the photos are still on the camera, the photos are on the internal memory, in which case you can format the SD card as fat32 on your computer, and reinsert the card into the camera. If the photos are not on your camera after removing the SD card, then the pictures are on the SD card and you will need to have someone assist you further in extracting the photos.

Memory Card


SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

It's not unusual for Windows updates to mess up the registry and cause problems with the card reader slot. The easiest solution is to get an inexpensive card reader that plugs into a USB port on your computer. They always work. typrice_125.jpg

Memory card error


The memory card could be too big. Some camera's can only use a certain size memory card. You will have to check your manual to see what the specifications for your memory cards. Hope this helps.

The spec for the SD card format is going to 2GB but the Kodak C330 not compatible with 2 GB SD memory cards.

But try an firmware upgrade. Maybe the supporting now the 2 GB memory cards.
Why download firmware version 1.07?
This firmware version improves memory card compatibility and provides general performance updates.

Write protected memory card..sd card


There should be a little switch on your memory card reader, if it is facing down, your card is locked. Push it up and then you should be ready to go. :)
