Trying the tap method: Tap the padded USB cover part on a hard surface while it is power-off.

My sony cyber shot camera suddenly is saying that my Lexar 4GB CompactFlash Premium Series 80x needs to be formatted. What about my pictures?

You might have locked memory card. If not first try to connect memory card to PC with memory card reader and try to copy your stuff... then after you take all stuff try to format it.

Memory card capacity for my older canon digital camera

Does you camera use CF cards?
If so the may work but some of the newer high tech CF cards are made for newer cameras.

It may be worth a shot to try the 2GB card and if it does not work, sell to someone who uses those.

When I turn on my PowerShot A70, it comes on and immediately shuts itself off and the Error E18 appears on the screen.

Canon Powershot's error E18 has to do with the lens:
If it appears on a black LCD with E18 written on the corner, it is mostly due to the lens getting stuck while trying to extend. The camera will beep a few times and the LCD will display a little E18 in the lower-left corner. The lens gets stuck in the extended position, and refuses to move either to focus the lens or to retract when powered off.
I am giving below a link which will help you with E18 problem.

Hope this helps, let me know if you have a proble.
Please do rate and thanks for using FixYa and Best fo luck to get you camera out of E18!

Cannon A70 lens stuck in middle causing it to keep powering off

The E18 error is fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension.

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for about 50% of lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty they're worth a try:

Digital Camera Malfunction

mine just started doing the same thing a few weeks ago. I had downloaded pixes to the computer, went outside to take picture and it started acting up. strange lines appear on the screen, but the codes are all there, and you can view the pictures that are on the card. no, the card is not full, the batteries are fine. I think it has a virus built in to start trouble so we will go buy a new one!

Memory cards

You may be able to store up to 110 images if you use the camera in its lowest resolution mode. In high resolution, you may get only 24 shots. We wish we could tell you precisely, but it depends on the exact size of the file created by a given camera, as well as the resolution that you select. Keep in mind that Secure Digital, CompactFlash, and SmartMedia memory cards are competing products and are not interchangeable. You'll find a few cameras that are compatible with more than one brand, but generally when you buy a digital camera today, you'll be making a commitment to work with one type of memory card. Use the attached chart to determine the average number of photos that Secure Digital memory cards can store (compatible with most HP digital cameras)
