Reading imposible and unable to read the card SD D was (bleep) compromise


If you think there should be important pictures on the card, please don't do a thing till you recovered them.
For that use an external card reader on your computer. If there are no pictures on the card, please try to format it in the camera.
Also, if it won't work in the camera, first try to format it (FAT32) on your computer and then again format it in the camera. Also check you did not switch the card to the lock position.

Hi there, I purchased an SDC02G Kingston Taiwan 2GB micro SD card to take holiday photographs which are very important to me. When i returned home from my holiday i was veiwing my pictures when i dropped...


First of all, do not save any new file to camera's memory card.

Take out memory card, and connect it to computer using a card reader. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in Windows Explorer.
Download asoftech photo recovery software

Install and open the photo recovery software, select the memory card, and click 'Start' button.

Is there a maximum SD memory card that I can use on my Panasonic Lumix DMCZ7. I have tried to use a 16 & 24Mb SD card but the camera will not read it and displays a ' card error reading message'


I think you mean 16 and 24 GB (Gigabyte), not MB, but those would not be SD cards. A card that size is actually an SDHC card. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but they are slightly different. Many cameras won't work with the SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

If you really mean 16MB, then that would be rather small, not too big. 16MB is definitely compatible with the camera and is mentioned in the manual.

The maximum memory card size mentioned in the manual is 1GB, and that is quite big enough. If you really need more space, then just carry a spare, like people used to take extra film with them on holiday.

My camera wont let me use an sd card


There have been two other posts in this camera's forum about this problem, you could've saved yourself a lot of trouble by reading through the other posts.
This camera only supports an SD card of 1GB maximum. The specifications on page 25 of the User's Manual state that only SD cards between 8MB and 1GB in size can be used in this camera. When I tried a larger-capacity 2GB SD card in this camera it reported that the card needed to be formatted even though the SD card worked fine in my desktop PC's SD card slot. Verify that the capacity of the SD card you're trying to use is 1GB or less.

Samsung SL310w Camera last day of holiday and Card error came up, can I retrieve my pics anyway. I had taken about 100 pictures. The card is and Optima SD 2GB which came with the camera. HELP PLEASE - PICS...


Take the card to a store that has a Kodak picture maker kiosk (like Walmart). Your pictures should show up and you can print them or even make a cd. After you do that, format the card in the camera before using it again.

I have a Kodak M1033 camera that I bought just over 6 months ago. I took it on holiday it worked fine and then suddenly it switched off. Since then it only powers up for about 5 seconds, shows a unfoc


I'm not sure why this works for me, but I think it's worth a try:

1) First, take your SD card out of the camera.

2) Then turn on your camera and let it turn itself off.

3) Read the next step first and be ready to press the shutter release button (take a picture) right after the LCD screen turns on

4) With the camera lens pointed down towards the floor (aim down), turn on the camera. At this point the LCD screen should not be blurry anymore. Immediately press the shutter release after confirming that the LCD is not blurry. If the camera stays on and you can review the picture (most likely of your feet), then you are almost done.

5) Turn off the camera and re-insert your SD card.

5) This may not be a permanent fix, but point the camera lens downward whenever you turn on the camera. It should work normally if you do this. Mine worked normally (meaning I don't have to point it downward when I turn it on) after doing this several times. Your results may vary.

Unable to download pictures from a Vivicam 6200w


I have he same problem with the vivicam 6200W as well. The only solution is to remove the card from the camera and use a SD card reader to read it to the computer. The included driver in the CD ROM will not allow direct access to an installed SD card. Removing the SD memory card will allow you to access the camera memory itself.

The better solution is to cluck the camera away and never ever buy a vivitar again. Get a FUJI or cannon with an underwater water casing.

Communication error


If your SD memory card contains more than 1,000 images, the camera will display "Communication Error". Use a card reader (if available) to import your images into the computer, or see about having some CD's made at a photofinishing business.
