    Your solution was already one that I was aware of, but just to make sure I attempted to put the card in both ways and neither way would allow it to click and stay held down. There is only one way to put the card in that will allow it to go all the way in and down. I still need your help!

I believe you are trying to insert the memory card in wrong way. make sure you follow the manual to insert the memory card with the right side

    thanks for the reply!!!. there is a small plastic hook which holds the memory card, when its inserted. if thats broken or stuck in the middle, you will be getting this problem. try to use a needle and just make sure that the plastic is working properly. please be a bit careful that you do not damage the camera's internal parts. if you still have problems, please reply to this post!!!!

Why is my camera going round and round in circle when trying to format my memory card?

I'm suspecting that you are trying to use a new 4GB or larger SDHC card with your older model camera. Please note that your model camera can only use 2GB or less standard SD cards (and NOT SDHC). 2GB SD cards are inexpensive, and still available on if your local store no longer carries them.

They're still there, except the card has become corrupted, and is not readable by your camera. See if you can insert the card back in your laptop and save the pictures onto your computer. If your laptop doesn't recognize the card either, then you may need to use recovery software. In that case, see the corrupted card procedures in this link. Once you successfully recover your photos onto your computer, you'll need to format your card IN YOUR CAMERA to make it usable again. Finally, sorry but if you were intending to use the card to long term store your photos and display them using your camera, you will no longer be able to do that with the previously taken photos.

To do that, you need a card reader. Insert your memory card into a card reader, then:

Insert the card reader into your computer's empty USB slot.

Go to "computer" or "my computer".

Right click on the drive of your card reader and choose properties.

Click the "Tools" tab then click "Check now"

Check "Automatically fix errors" and "Scan for and attempt to recover bad sectors"

Click "start" and wait for it to finish.

That should fix the errors. If it doesn't, format your memory card.

Thanks for using Fixya!

"card protected " appears whenever i attempt a

Take the memory card out of your camera. 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. Then put the card back into the camera.

If that doesn't work, try another card.

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 or FireWire). 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 cataloging program.

Insert the memory card in a computer that accepts that type of card (card slot) and see if this other computer can recognize the format. If so, download those files to that computer.

Putting back pictures to memory card

hi this should be pretty easy,all you do is go to my pictures,highlight one picture,then hold down the right shift key,while scrolling down to the end of your pictures,click on the last picture,then release the shift key,you might not want all of the highlighted picture or thet might not all fit depending on how muck space you have on the card.if you have enough thats fine if not you can take the ones you want to stay on the computer,by simply holding the ctrl(control) button down and clicking on the ones you want to stay on your computer,continue clicking the ones you want to stay while holding the ctrl, button after you,ve highlighted all the pictures you want back on your card,look to your left and you should see something stating move these on that,a window should pop up,and ask you where do you want to move them if you dont see a removable media icon in that window,double click my computer and it should appear highlight your media card and click move.thats it you should see your files being transfered.i hope i helped.good luck
