Welcome to FixYa.

First, I suggest that you have to clean you memory card using soft and dry cloth after that try to format it again and save it.

After you formatted your memory card, now try to upload it to your computer. Sometimes memory card wont work because is not formatted for the camera used you said that you already formatted it before, possible that you forgot to save all the settings and formatting that you've done before.

I hope this information can help you to resolve your issues.

Thank you for using Fixya.

Took pictures with m dane-elec 8gb then it told e i need to format.will i lose all my pictures


Yes, formatting removes all the data. However, the photos might be on the camera's internal memory and not the SD card.

If possible, connect the camera to a computer and copy the photos onto the computer, then you can safely format the SD card.

If you cannot connect the camera to a computer, you will need to take out the SD, and verify that the pictures are still on the camera. If the photos are still on the camera, the photos are on the internal memory, in which case you can format the SD card as fat32 on your computer, and reinsert the card into the camera. If the photos are not on your camera after removing the SD card, then the pictures are on the SD card and you will need to have someone assist you further in extracting the photos.

Take no more pics until you've recovered your photos, take the card out of the camera. This is to reduce the chance of you overwriting some of your "lost" photos. There are many good freeware photo recovery software options that may help you recover your photos. This article reviews and outlines several of the better ones. Now after you've recovered your photos, consider formatting the card in the camera to prevent this from happening again.

Card Error


Take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. Here's some freeware photo recovery software that should be what you're looking for.

You will need to use a flash card reader with this software. If you don't have one, get one, they're very inexpensive.

The reason this occurred is that you likely never formatted the card. The card will work fine in the beginning but eventually will corrupt. AFTER you've recovered the photos, format the card in your camera to prevent this from happening again (dig out that instruction manual to figure out how). Keep in mind formatting will also totally erase your card, so again only do this after you've recovered the photos.

Sounds like you're switching the same card between cameras. Rule #1...one card per camera. Format the card in the camera it is to be used in. There is no Rule #2.

Sounds as if the card is corrupted - you will have to use data recovery software.

Pictures gone!


Take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. Here's some freeware photo recovery software that should be what you're looking for. Recommend the last program listed on this page:

You will need to use a flash card reader with this software. If you don't have one, get one, they're cheap:

After you've recovered the photos and backed them up on your computer, recommend formatting the card in your camera (note that this will erase all photos on your card). Look for the "Low Level" format option in your camera's menus. A low level format should help prevent this from happening again.

Sd memory card not read by computer


Reformat the card from the camera. You didn't specify camera model but every digital camera has a menu to format media.

If you don't succeed try to connect your camera to the computer and read the photos.

If that doesn't succeed either take your camera to service.
