Re: CompactFlash storage card

Make sure you're using an ATA-compatible CompactFlash memory card. Other cards may not work with PhotoPC 650.

I have the same camera with the same problem. You can try formatting the card using the camera. With the camera set as if you are going to look at what's on the card, press the Menu/OK button. Move up to the word Format, press Menu/OK button, FORMAT OK? should display. Press Menu/OK button. This will format your card. Unfortunately, I think there is something wrong with my camera. Still getting 'card not initialized'.

Formattting again and again my SanDisk Extreme III 4.0 Gb CompactFlash Card


Hi, It may be possible that your CompactFlash Card is nearing its end. You can try formatting it after you have downloaded into your PC all the pictures. Try to use the camera's built-in formatting function. Thereafter plug it back to your PC and use a disk checking utility such as scandisk or Norton Disk Doctor. Do an intensive check including the free space. If the disk check shows any errors, then the CompactFlash Card is no longer a reliable storage media and you are better off purchasing a replacement rather than gamble that it will still work. If for some reason, even your PC can not access the card, you have to use a file recovery program to recover/download/copy the picture files and then try the disk check utility. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

Storage capacity limit


Only the Camera Manual will tell you the max capacity. They do have their limits and you could a be wasting your money or even find the camera does not accept it. Check the manual thoroughly and if still in doubt put the question to the Nikon Technical Support Team.

ERROR MESSAGE: Corrupted CompactFlash card.


Storing digital picture information to a CompactFlash card (as when a digital image is taken) is similar to storing data on the hard drive of a computer -- if the process is stopped or interrupted, the information stored is not complete and, therefore, "corrupts" the storage media. A computer will display a warning message indicating that the hard drive has errors, while a camera will display a message indicating the memory card is corrupted. The CompactFlash card corruption can be caused by: * Turning off the camera power before the photo information is completely stored on the card. * Removing the card before the photo information is completely stored on it. * Taking a second picture before the camera has finished storing the previous picture. * Camera batteries that are near the end of their life and need to be replaced. Once a CompactFlash card is corrupted, it can be used again only by performing a Format procedure. IMPORTANT! When a CompactFlash card is re-formatted, any pictures stored on it will be lost forever and cannot be recovered.

Formatting a CompactFlash card.


A digital camera's Format command is used to prepare a removeable CompactFlash memory card to accept digital image information from the camera. A card should be formatted when: * the card is new and has never been used before. * the card was used in a different camera or other device that accepts CompactFlash cards. * the card has become "corrupted" and will not store additional images.

Make sure you're using an ATA-compatible Type-I CompactFlash memory card. Make sure you've installed the card correctly. The card's label should be facing the front of the camera, and the arrow(s) on the label should point in.

I just bought an Epson 650 digital camera. I know, it's not new and fancy, but it's all I could afford right now. I bought this one (from ebay) mainly because my daughter has the same one- she bought several years ago, for around$350. I've noticed what big, clear, detailed pictures it takes (she sends to me). She resizes the pictures smaller, but the resolution on hers is 144. she uses one of the "better" settings, not the standard and not the BEST. What I've noticed with mine is, the resolution is 75 and the pictures don' tseem as clear and detailed. This might be partially because the scenery ones I've taken are of SNOW. I've tried using all the settings, even the very best, which only takes 3 pictures. The resolution is still 75. The picture size is big, 15"X 11". They are JPEG. I tried using he HotShots software that came with it, and now use Paint Shop Pro 7, with AQUIRE (Twain). I tried using the memory card in the USB cable that came with it, but it seemed to be clashing with my CD burner, which is in the other USB port. It's just as easy to use the camera and serial port and PSP. My daughter doesn't know much about it, she just takes the pictures and then takes them off. Hers have always been 144 resolution. I'm not saying the pictures on mine aren't good, and they're better than the Kodak DC 3200 I've had for over a year. Just that they don't seem as good as my daughter's, and it's the exact same camera. Could it be the memory (flashcard) that sets the resolution of the pictures? I have the original 8 MB one that came with the camera and my daughter once bought a bigger one. I know I can change the resolution in PSP to something higher if I want. I've been trying to find out what decides what the resolution of the pictures (when taken off the camera) might be? I can't find anything in the directions book about the settings for this. Just the "standard, better, best and extra fine". But, they all take pictures with 75 resolution.
