You don't need to format, just look for an option in your camera to switch between PTP mode and mass storage mode. Try either mode to see which one let you download the pics

My camera doesn't see SD 16GB anymore. Worked fine until a few days ago. SD works fine on PC


Try inspecting the memory card slot, eventually with a magnifying glass. Sometimes just a little bit of dust, a small paper or other debris, can block data transfer. Be sure al contacts on the card, but also in the camera are clean and shining. Never use sharp tools in or around a camera. Don't scratch the contact points.
And to make sure you can put pictures on a memory card, there must be space. If possible try to format the card in the camera. Just to make sure the camera sees the correct file system on the memory card.

MEMORY FULL


The internal memory or the memory card of your camera is full. At least there is not enough memory free to save anything.
If you can't do anything, remove the battery, then remove the memory card and try to rescue the pictures on that card. There are recovery programs online, if you do have important pictures on the card. If you are ready saving, or you don't need anything from that card, try to format it on your PC. Just FAT will do. Then put the memory card back in and give it a format in the camera. Just to make sure the format is known bin your computer.
It could be there is no memory card in your camera at all, Because you forgot you did put it in another camera. Then just place a new one. BUT TAKE CARE. You only can use SD cards, because your camera is from before the SDHC period.
Or is a SDHC card in the camera already? that is the culprit.

I couldn't re format my card and it seems like it stop working as well. How could I fix this problem?


Check your SD card on the PC and if this is not detected then it is possible that the card is damaged. Unless the internal memory of the card is accessable by the PC , it cannot be formatted. If there is warranty claim for a replacement.

How can I load photos back into the camera? I see that they are on my memory card, but for some reason it says No images when I put it back into my camera.


What happened while the card was out of the camera? Was it in your computer and you forgot to use "safely remove hardware" when you removed it? Was it used in another camera? You need to download the pics to your computer for safety and then format the card in the camera to get it working again.

Have a SDHC 8gb Kodak card that won't format in Z1285


It's suggested that you use any SD Memory Card formatting Software to format the SD memory card. You can download any such Software from the address given below:
https://eww.pavc.panasonic.co.jp/support/jp/sd/sdfv2003.exe

Download the software from the above link and install in your computer and then format the memory card using it. After formatting the memory card, insert it in your Camera and use it normally.

Downloaded some pixs and put sd card back in camera and end up with card error on it solution?


Make sure the pics are truly on the computer, then format the card in the camera. In general, you should format the card each time you download pics.

Unrecongnized file format


Hi there
Connect the camera to the PC, transfer the good pics to a folder on the PC, then use the camera's menu to format the card for use again, if you format the card before transferring the pics, you will loose them all.


Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!

Unable to view pics


Copy the existing photos on to your PC, switch off the camera. Remove the SD card and format the SD-card using a SD-card reader, this will clear all the card contents. Now try using it in your Camera again. Ideally, you should be able to save photos on this SD card. Other way would be to insert another SD card into your camera and click photos and check whether those photos are being saved into the SD card(this can be done using display option in your digicam.)

Not able to 'delete' a picture from my Lumix TZ3


Sounds like a MobileMate quirk Tanya. Use your USB cable connection to your PC/Camera interface and delete pics that way too see if this funny goes away.

If it does, and I believe it will, then it is a SanDisk issue not revising the File Allocation Table(FAT) after deleting the Pic File on the mem card.

You could also find out if this is just an SDHC SD card reader issue by using an older less dense standard 1 or 2Meg non-SDHC mem card in the reader and see if issue goes away.

The fallback of course to view and delete the pics on the camera before download, or download pics then note which pic file numbers you want deleted after viewing on PC, then put SD card back in camera and delete them there.

Another option for trial, is to cut and paste the whole DCIM folder, or sub pic folder to your PC from off the SD card using the card reader. The camera automatically generates subfolders under the DCIM folder if you completely remove(deleting by a cut or move), when you take your first picture on a camera with a DCIM but not sub pic folder. Try this first and I think you will find all pics will be deleted from camera that are in a subfolder under DCIM. If not, then cut or move the whole DCIM folder and create a new DCIM(empty) folder on the SD card using the PC and card reader. Of course using this method you cannot selective delete individual pics from the mem card. You would be deleting them all after the Folder cut or move from the SD card.
