Formating I just got back from vacation and took tons of pictures, when i got back home I clicked on format thinking it was something different, now all the pictures are gone and the only pics left are those already on my camera, not on the memory card. Is there a way to retrieve those lost pictures? Thanks

I purchased a new memory card for vacation. When


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

Card not initialized


This usually means the card needs to be formatted in the camera but, this will erase all your vacation pictures. First, try downloading your pictures to your computer using a separate card reader. If that doesn't work, take the card to a store like Walmart that has a Kodak picture maker machine. You can print your pictures or make a cd from them. Then you can safely format the card in the camera.

I took about 200 pictures before my sony cyber shot indicated I had a format error. I took memory stick to a photo store and they tried using two different programs and couldnt recover any of my pictures....


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.

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.

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.

Does "formating memory card" means it deletes everything???....


Yes, when you format a memory card, it erases all its data. Nowadays many companies/manuals don't bother mentioning that, unfortunately :(

Photos wont open


There seems to be a corruption of file type between camera and computer The fact that the computer wont play mov. but the camera will if back loaded seems odd. JPEG files can and do go wonky if back loaded to camera after editing because essential info for the camera has been deleted. A JPEG file as produced by a camera is properly called an EXIF file because has has EXtendedINformation. Lose it and the camera wont know it. Like wise older PC's such Win 98 and older software don't know about EXIF so they chop it off So something like that is happening here. Check out Tech Support at Kodak see what they can tell you.
