    Sorry, I assumed you assumed I had a reader. That's not my problem. When I insert it into the USB, it says the card is not formatted. When I tell it to format, Windows comes back and says it was unable to format it.

You could either buy a reader and format it that way, or format it within a device. Those are pretty much your only options. If you bring it to a best buy or some sort of electronics store they might be able to do it for you. Possibly for free too. Good Luck.

    I see.

    I don't know if I can help you then, I would say you still might want to go over to a electronics store and ask them, but I had a problem like this and it was because I had previously formatted it for something else, but somehow it locked the card up so I couldn't use it on anything except a single device.

My Scandisk Ultra 2GB shows pictures on laptop, yet not on camera...the pictures are on the card. I did download them on my computer, removed them from the card, zoomed, cropped etc on Windows, then...


It is possible that when you edited the pictures on your computer, that you might have changed the file format when you resaved them.

Check the names of your picture files on the computer and compares the endings (.JPG or .BMP or whatever) between new pictures that come directly from your camera and pictures that you have edited and resaved.

If the formats are different at all, then your camera will probably not be able to read them. Cameras usually save pictures in one specific format and can only read them if they are in exactly that format. A computer on the other hand is much more flexible and can usually read or save pictures in many different formats.

Your computer should give you the option of saving a picture file in a different format if you want. When you edit and save the pictures on your computer next time, use the SAVE AS feature, this should give you the option of changing the name of the file as well as the file extension from a drop down list. Then just try saving the picture files in different formats until you find the one that your camera can read. Or just look in your cameras Owner's Manual and find out exactly what format the pictures need to be in for the camera to recognize and display them from a memory card.

Good luck.

I have Sandisk Extreme III 4GB memory card why after i shooting photo the file is cannot read?


Make sure your camera is compatible with a 4GB flash card. Some only take 1 or 2 GB cards. If that isn't the issue, format your card inside the camera with the camera's format utility.

Camera reads, computer doesn't


That is odd. Try the recovery software that comes with the sandisk cards and see if you are able to get them after that.
Do you format your cards each time in the camera before shooting?

I defraged my card and now it does not work in my camera


An older mac could have rearrange the byte order and thus render the card unusable. Have you tried to format the card in the camera? If this doesn't work contact sandisk for a replacement.

SanDisk Ultra 11 CompactFlash Card 4Gb says "Card not Initalized"


You may need to format the card. There should be a Format command in the Setup menu. To be more specific, one would need to know which model of Finepix camera you refer to.
