Is it an SDHC card of 4gb or more? If so, check to see if your camera can handle cards that large.

Memory Error Message


There is a white switch on the side of those sticks, and make sure it is not in write protected mode. If that doesn't work, I am sorry to say that stick might of went bad. Before giving up I would take to a professional film place and have them take a look to see if they can get them off w/o formatting.

The camera may display a FORMAT ERROR if the inserted media is not formatted or if the media was formatted ona Computer. This error may also display if the inserted media is notsupported by the camera.

Cant read the xd card


Try http://www.spartanphotocenter.com/digital-camera-sensor-cleaning.html the card needs a data recovery (using special recovery software) and then a reformat. That may get most of your pictures back, but there will most likely be some (can't say how many or why) that will be corrupt and not usable. If the corrution is really bad no pictures will be available. No way to know except by attemoting a data recovery.

I turn on my camera and the screen comes up


Formating is preparing your card for use in your camera. Because different makes of camera have their own software to operate it the card needs to be "Formatted" so that it will work with your camera.
If you have already used the card in your camera then it is possible that one of the connecting pins is either not touching the corresponding pin on your card or it has some dirt or dust preventing it from making a connection so first of all remove your card and try again and if that does not work then before you format the card plug it in to the card reader in your pc or purchase a card reader to plug in to your pc and up load your pics to your pc to save them then plug your card back in to your camera and proceed with formating.
If you do not save your pics before formating then you will lose them because formating will wipe your card clean.

Conditional formating to highlight problems.


in Excel 2007 and if you have a cell (say C2) with the value of elapsed time (for example set = A2 which contains start time plus B2 which contains end time - or current time) - click in the cell (C2) then on the Home tab click on Styles >> Conditional formatting choose Highlight Cells Rules>>Greater Than... set your value in the dialog to your respective value and choose your highlight. This is a start - you can then add new rules.

to then apply this same conditional formatting to every cell in that column Ctrl-C to copy the cell you just formatted - then click on the column header to highlght the entire column - Right-click and choose Paste Special - then choose Formatting for what to paste.

It's slightly different in Excel 2003 so let us know what version you are using.

Cheers.

System formating


If I understand correctly ... you need to format a hard disc partition.
to do that, yo open My Computer, right-click on the partition and select Format. you'll get a small window. You can chose Quick Format, though I don't really recomend it. to start, click the button begin/start/format ... something like that.
Formating erases all data on the partition! be sure to copy everything you want to keep on another partition or CD.
Furthermore, you can not format the partition with the currently runnign operating system on it. for that, you need to do things a bit differently. Post if you'd like that info, too.

My camera is just deleting all my pictures by its self.


I don't think you can get them back when you format a memory card it erases all the pictures as part of formating

Just bought the camera. I bought 2.0 GB of memory (San Disk)


I'm sorry but it is hard to understand your problem. Did you try to remove the card and see if there is any dirt or something blocking the contacts? Also if the camera will not format the card try pluging the camera into your PC and right click on the icon labled "Removable Disk (E:)" (the "E" may be a different letter) and the click on the Format... option that appears (about halfway down the list that pops up) and click start and click "OK" on the warning that pops up.
