Memory card problem

My camera came with a 512MB SD IMPACT memory card.  That card continues to work fine in my camera.

However, I have been using a 1 GB SD IMPACT memory card, which has worked fine until recently.  I have taken many pictures on it and put them from the camera onto the computer without problems and have deleted many pictures from the camera.  My 1GB card said on the camera that it would hold 900 and some pictures, but the day that it said it had over 200 pictures left on it, it quit working.  I went to review my pictures for that day and found that the last 10 or 12 pictures I had taken were not on the card.  Worse yet, my screen was red and said that the card has the wrong format and press okay to format the card.  I did not press okay for fear I would lose my vacation pictures, right?  I have taken it out and put it back in, but that didn't help.

How do I get the pictures off the memory card now that it says it has the wrong format without losing them?  And why, after all this time, does it say it has the wrong format?  If I just hook up the camera to the computer, will it let me print them off?  I haven't tried that, because I really don't want to take the chance of losing the vacation pictures.

Thank you for your help.

my memory card keeps saying it need to be formatted but if i do that i am gon loose my vacation pictutres

Sometimes flash memory can be exhausted, so to speak, and will stop functioning. This is all you can do to get your pictures back. After that try running a format and then the error check tools under the tools tab in the right click properties window.

Download a program called FreeUndelete from here and install it but before you open it, connect your MP3 player or insert your SD card. After you start the program up, select the drive letter that represents the memory you want to scan for deleted files.Click the scan button above the list and wait. If there's too many results, then look near the bottom of the window. There should be a"Filter found files" line where you can enter in the file type of the photos you lost. It probably should be this: "*.jpg" Once you have found the files you want to recover, create a folder you want to save them to in your My Documents folder and copy the path to that folder by right clicking on it then clicking properties. The path you need to copy is the line called Location (don't actually copy "Location: ".Just what's after it :p ) Now paste it in the line called "Undelete selected file(s) To" under the "Filter found files" line. Make sure you paste over the existing text. Finally, click the Undelete button to the right and Viola! check the files out in the folder you created in your My Documents folder.

Nikkon coolpix L1 After downloading memory card .. then putting back into camera. Reading says "cannot read memory card." Checked card out at store verified that it is good. Why does it not work in my...


A couple things you might try.. remove the card carefully and check the position of the "lock" tab. Make sure it is fully in the unlocked position - not locked or a point between the two positions. Reinsert and try again.

It sounds lie you're using a card reader to download the pictures - try formatting the card while in the card reader via computer. The card should be completely empty when the format is complete. You can even try copying files to and from the card to make sure its ok and format again. When complete, try again in camera.

If the problem persists, check to make sure the card is on Nikon approved memory card list for use with the Coolpix L1 (provided below):

The following is a list of approved memory cards for the Coolpix L1 digital still camera. These cards have been tested and approved for use with the Coolpix L1.
The L1 uses SD (Secure Digital) memory. Sandisk:
  • 64MB, 128 MB, 256MB, 512MB, 1 GB, 256MB*, 512MB*, 1GB*
Toshiba:
  • 64MB, 128MB, 256MB, 512MB, 1 GB, 128 MB*, 256MB*, 512MB
Panasonic:
  • 64MB, 128MB, 256MB, 1 GB, 256MB*, 512MB*, 1GB*
* - Cards rated for 10MB/s (high speed) Other cards have not been tested. For more details on the memory cards listed above, please contact the manufacturer.

The list came direct from Nikon Support. Other cards may work, but only those on the list are approved. Successful use of other cards can not be guaranteed.


I hope this helps!

Using a disk with more memory


Yes you can use any same type. However if your using a older digicam, they might not recognize some of the newer cards. ig. You have a 512MB card (SD) and you want to upgrade for more storage on a 2GB, it should work. The catch is make surere its just a SD card and not a SHCH (only the newer/newest models can use this type). Other than that, if I'm right, your canon should work fine.

Z3 will not accept a 2g card


The Dimage Z3 accept SD cards up to 1GB (Minolta says 512 Mb, and sold it with 16Mb). This camera is 4MP , and uses less memory on card, therefore a 512MB card will be enough for it.

Memory card problem


Assuming your camera acts like a removable drive when connected to the PC try the following.

  1. Right click the removable drive(your camera) in my computer and go properties>tools>error checking>tick both boxes>ok
  2. Wait till it finishes and check if you can now view the contents of the card. And copy to safe place straight away.
  3. Try http://www.officerecovery.com/freeundelete/ to recover any deleted files or fragments of damaged files.
  4. Let me know if any of this works.

"This card can not be used"


I experienced the same problem with a 1Gb card. The Vivicam 4000 only supports SD cards no larger than 512Mb. My solution to the problem was to simply repartition the SD card into two equal 512Mb partitions using Cute Partition Manager...http://www.cutepm.com. You should be able to do much the same thing except you will have to create 4-partitions, each no larger than 512Mb. When doing so, use the FAT 16 format option. As a word of caution, after repartitioning, do not use the fomat option on your camera, or it will restore it to a single partition 2Gb format. Also, when using whichever partitioning software you choose, be sure that you have selected your SD card, and not your C-Drive. Hope this is as successful for you as it was for me.

Optio 30 SD Card Max Size


You can now get up to 2.0 Gigs (that's 2048MB) of storage on a MiniSD card and all you would need is a SD Adaptor. The following site has MiniSD cards that are 1.0Gig (1024MB) or 2.0Gig (2048MB) and they come with FREE adaptors! http://www.flash-memory-store.com/mini-secure-digital.html As technology increases so will the story size. They are talking about making MiniSD cards that are up in the 5.0gig (5120MB) area. Enjoy!
