I have 5 of those cameras and I've never been able to use a memory card bigger than 2 GB. The 4 GB gave me the same message so I don't even try anymore.

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.

Your camera won't write to the memory card until you get rid of the pics in the internal memory. Download any you want to save. Then, with no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. You should be ok after that. Promise yourself you will never use the internal memory again.

Internal Memory full; No memory card in; Will not take pictures;


You need to get a memory card and promise to never use the internal memory again....it only causes problems as you have found out. When you get the new card follow this procedure: 1. With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" and follow the on-screen instructions to format the internal memory. 2. Insert the new card and do the format thing again to prepare the new card. Happy photography!

After downloading any pictures from the card, insert it into the camera and do the "format" thing again. everything should work now.

Hmm....
Seems like your Memory Card already damaged and corrupted.If you still want to use it, try formatting it using your Computer, again and again.
If the problem still persist, there's no other way, you have to buy the new ones.

Hi,
I do not know whether your camera has an internal memory or not. A model would have helped and i could have given detail instructions. In its absence kindly do the following:
Power on the camera and go into settings. Ususally the method is to go through Menu > Settings. Then explore the settings until you come to date, time, memory area. This is where you can set whether the memory card/stick needs to be formatted. If there is an internal memory then you will see copy and format options. this means that you can copy files from the internal onto your card and also format it if you wish.
Another thing you need to know is that you can tell your camera which memory area to use for storing files. Usually if internal memory is selected, then it needs to be manually switched to external/alternate memory area for storing files.
Go through the manual for detail steps and the manufacturer's website. Otherwise, post your camera model no. here so i can be of more help.

What does unidentified image mean?


The card has become corrupted. First make sure that you have downloaded and backed up all the pictures that you wish to keep from the card. If your computer does not recognize them from the card, you may need to use recovery software. Here's some freeware that's very good:

http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/recovering-those-accidentally-lost.html

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

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=sr_st?keywords=card+reader&rs=172282&page=1&rh=n%3A172282%2Ck%3Acard+reader&sort=price

The reason this occurred is that you likely never formatted the card. The card will work fine in the beginning but eventually will corrupt. AFTER you've recovered and backed up your photos, format the card in your camera to prevent this from happening again (dig out that instruction manual to figure out how). Keep in mind formatting will also totally erase your card, so again only do this after you've recovered the photos.
