The card is most likely done for but there are a few tricks you can try. If the card is still wet then no device will be able to read it and while it might appear dry there could be residual water inside the unit. The most effective way to get water out is to put it inside a container of white rice (not that you will eat after using it this way) so that the card is completely immersed and leave it in for at least a week. The rice will act like the little packs you see in boxes of electronics and **** the water out of the air and nearby items. You could also use those gel packs if you happen to have any lying around.
If this doesn't work, take the card to a local geek repair center (most electronics stores have their own versions now) and they might be able to do emergency recovery for a fee.

My computer quit reading the card or the camera, so I can't get pictures from the camera onto my computer


Try removing theSD memory card from your camera and inserting the SD memory card into an USBmemory card reader then connect the USB card reader into the USB port of aworking computer. The computer will see this USB card reader and SD memory cardas an external storage device. You can open the camera photo folder and copythe photos to your computer.

It means that the transfer is in process. It's letting you know that you shouldn't turn off your camera - it is busy!

I took 10 pictures without the memory card so the pictures are on the cameras memory i suppose. I'm now wanting to load them onto my computer but my picture program as well as computer can't see the...


Took a bit to find this this bad news in the manual but what happens now is to get the pictures from the internal memory to the computer as a down load you need to first insert a memory card format the memory card and load each picture from the internal memory onto the memory card one at a time once that is down then you can download the memory card to the computer then you will need to reformat the memory card and then go back into the internal memory erase each one of those images and format the internal memory. Now the GOOD news, you only have 10 pictures. Don't forget to do the formatting.

My mobiles memory card goes on saying checking memory card or memory card not inserted i gave for service some six times and every time they reinstalled my software thats it. what should i do now?


You didn't mention the make or model of your digital camera; but I don't think any digital camera requires any type of software installed on the memory card.

With that being said, and if I am correct, then you should be able to take the SD card (or what ever type of memory card your camera uses), and plug it into your computer; providing your computer has a card reader.

See if your computer can read your memory card; if so try and cut and paste a simple file onto the card and see if you can save a file onto your memory card. If your computer can read and write files onto your memory card, then a good chance your memory card is good, and there might be something wrong with the camera.

If you can not read the memory card with your computer, then try formating the card (make sure you format it with FAT32). Now try and read and write to your memory card with your computer, if this still fails; then there is a good chance your memory card is no good.

If after formating your card, and the card passes the read and write test, try putting the card back into your camera and see if it works; There might be a chance that the person that serviced your camera "6 times" formated your card incorrectly.

Good luck

Sandisk micro SD "card error"


The five pics are being stored on the camera's internal memory. The card you used was formatted and used in your phone. It's a miracle it worked at all. You need to get a new card, format it in your new camera have fun.

After reformatting my fujitsu lifebook n5010 it doesnt read it.


Is the card reader built into the computer?
I know there are a few card readers out there having trouble reading 2 gig memory cards if the computer or card reader was built over 5 years ago.
If you have a data cable for your phone and software for the phone, your computer should be able to read it that way.

Screen reading memory card not initialized


Hello


  • Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from Amazon.com or Buy.com
  • 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
  • 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  • 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  • 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
  • 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

    Downloading pictures


    Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


    The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


    Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.
