Memory card is not working

While trying to turn on the camera to download pictures into my computer, the camera doesn't turn on. So I took out the battery and tried to turn it on again, and still it doesn't work. Then i discovered, when I took out the memory card, the camera instantly works and once the memory card is inserted back in, it doesn't work. I then tried inserting the memory card in other places like the computer and a card reader and yet the computer can't pick up any trace of the memory card. Is there something wrong with the memory card? Is it corrupted? What happens to all of the data in there?

ALTERNATE WAY TO TRANSFER PHOTOS AND VIDEOS TO A COMPUTER
If your photos and videos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos and to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.

I took 850 pictures but T I can see in the camera only 180. Do you know what is happening?


I think you will have to reformat your memory card.
To do this:
  1. Copy all the pictures from the camera onto your computer.
  2. With the camera on, and the memory card inserted, press the menu button.
  3. Highlight "Setup"
  4. Go to "Format"
  5. Select "Yes"
After this is complete, if it still doesn't work, your memory card is defective and you must buy a new one.

On my DMC-TZ8 the screen says "this memory card is write -protected " how do I solve this problem , only had camera two months I have took memory card out all seems alright THANKYOU


Your memory card is either write protected or corrupted.
  • If it's write protected, it can be very easily fixed.
  1. Turn off cam.
  2. Take out the mem. card. (it's probably located near the battery. press down on it and release it. Then it will pop out.)
  3. Slide the small switch on the side of the card to the position marked with an unlocked padlock.
  4. Put card back in and turn on cam.
  • If that doesn't seem to be the problem, then it's likely that the memory card is corrupted. This is common with Flash memory that has been used extensively for a long time and this problem is likely not caused by any fault in the camera. You might not be able to access any pictures that were stored on your cam, but you can try using a data recovery software like Recuva if you want to recover pictures ( click name to download ). If you want to use the card again, You can try formatting it (differs from cam to cam, check instructions manual for specific instructions) If this doesn't work, You will have to buy a new card. Make sure you buy a good brand like Lexar or SanDisk.

That's it. hope that helped.

My Fujifilm s5000 camera turns on but when I go to take a picture it turns off. I can view my pictures but can't take any.


Your memory card or internal memory may be full. I've run into situations where the card full doesn't flash on the monitor or LCD screen because there is lets say 3 gigs of memory left but the picture you are taking is 3.5gig's it won't take the picture because there isn't enough memory to put the image anywhere. Download your pictures to your computer, format your memory card and all should be good again. If you are using the internal memory you will need to obtain (buy) a memory card for your camera and download from the internal memory each picture from the memory card one by one until all the internal pictures are on the removable memory card then download these to the computer. After you have them on the computer go back into the internal memory and delete each of thse pictures and you are ready to start taking pictures once again. it took me longer to type this then the process will take to do.

Not able to view pictures!


Your camera card may becoming corrupted. You could try using a separate card reader to try to download your pics or take them to Walmart and use the Kodak Picture Maker to print them or make a CD of them. Once they're downloaded, format the card in the camera for a fresh start.

I have a sony dsc-f717 took several pictures and now i get format error 13:01 and can't retrieve the photos I've took and veiwed. Help retrieving


1st, try and download the pictures via your computer and a memory card adapter. If you're computer doesn't recognize the card through an adapter,

2) go to www.ita.sel.sony.com
Search by the model number of the Memory Stick. There is Memory Stick recovery software. follow the steps for the download and recovery.

3) On new/blank memory cards, I sometimes have to format the MS in the camera first, then everything works fine.
