    I have the same issue. I've plugged in a 1GB SD card to the appropriate slot, and I already have the USB connection in place and working with a 2GB USB flash drive and an external USB hard drive. The SD card worked on my PC at home but it's not working with my monitor. Any suggestions?

After formatting a memory card (any memory card) the camera works fine. I can take the SD card out and via an USB reader d/l the photos to either Windows or Linux. After use the card is no longer...


Sounds like you're yanking the card or card reader out without using the "safely remove hardware" function on your computer. This habit can corrupt the card (as you've found out).

Hi, I have had my camera for two years however for some reason it is not uploading to my computer.


Hi, I've found the L18 was always finicky with transferring photos, your best bet would be to get a usb card reader and put the SD card into that to transfer the photos.

Can I retrieve deleted pictures from my Canon PowerShot A3100IS


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:

My canon A480 powershot has hundreds of pics on it. I went to look at them this morning and now only 14 remain .. how can i get them back .. ??


Jessica, this occurred because you didn't intitially format the card in the camera when you first got it. It will work fine at first, but eventually what you experienced will happen. But you don't want to format your card just yet as it will erase it.
Instead, to recover your photos, you'll need to use a card reader with your computer to see if the files can be copied directly and saved to your computer. If you don't already have a reader, don't fret as they are very inexpensive. For example, here's one that I use that is very good. You may also purchase card readers at your local store, such as W or K mart, but they may be a bit more expensive at brick and mortar stores. With the card reader, you insert the card into the reader, then insert the reader into your USB port. The card then shows up as a hard drive, that you can copy and paste the missing photos from onto your computer. Also recommend using the reader in the future to download your photos from your camera, as it is very fast and relatively error free.
Now if by chance your photos still don't show up with the reader, don't fret as they're still there on the card. You'll just need to use recovery software with your reader to get them. It's very easy, here's a listing of very good freeware for that purpose.
Finally AFTER you've recovered your photos, format the card IN YOUR CAMERA using the camera's format feature. This will rejuvenate the card so it will be good as new, but it will also erase it. So again, only do this AFTER you've recovered the photos.
Good Luck!

Is there any way to retrieve pictures from memory card that says card error in camera


You can try another camera which uses the same card type.

Does yours or a friends pc/laptop have a card reader built in ?

You could try a photo processing shop, see if their card reader can see your pictures.

You can buy multi-card readers which connect to a pc via a usb port.


If you've tried 2 or more of the above, and they all say the same. Your card has had it and you've probably lost the pictures.

Uploading problem


There are a few different ways to upload them. I have found that when I connect the camera to the computer, sometimes I get scrambled photos. When I use a card reader, connected directly into the USB port, I get all good pictures. If I connect the camera OR the card reader to a USB hub, at least half of my pictures get scrambled. I take 3-4 thousand photos in a years time. I was happy to end the problem.
