Question about Lexar 4GB Professional Series 80x CompactFlash Card

1 Answer

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

I tried inserting my 4GB CompactFlash Premium Series 80x into a card reader to download my pictures. After that I cannot use it back in my camera.How do I get my pictures? Can I fix the CompactFlash card without losing 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.

I need help my laptop is not letting me download my pictures from my pny premium 4gb memory card .. it does work on my camera


How did u try to download pics? What i know is that there are two ways to save something from a memory card to a PC. One way is via USB cable and other way is directly from mem card.
If you're trying to save your pics from CAM to PC using an USB cable and not working at all then try opening up the memory card from your CAM and insert the card directly into your laptop in the laptop's memory card slot but if there isnt any slot, try to get it into a card reader and then attach the card reader with your PC. Hope it will work for you, best of luck.... x

Is there some sort of adapter for a sandisk Ultra CompactFlash 4gb, that i can use to put picutres on my computer?


The device:
Belkiin Universal Media Card Reader
Can be connected to your computers USB port and will then allow you to move pictures from the compact flash card to your computer.
After you connect the device and insert the card you will see a short delay and near the bottom right corner of the screen a message will appear letting you know that windows is setting up the new device. Moments after this completes you will see a new window popup asking what you would like to do with the media card. From the list select move pictures to my computer with the Scanner And Camera Wizard. During the move it will remove the pictures from the card and give you more free space for pictures if you click the checkbox labeled Delete Original Pictures.

I have inserted the lexar card reader into the USB drive (wuth memory card) but cannot figure out how to download or even find the pictures.


Go into "My Computer" and locate the card reader drive icon. If it's not there then you need to load its' driver. If it is there, merely double click on it to open the files contained in the card.

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'.

If you are using a card reader of some sort (other than using the camera to download the images), it may not be SDHC compliant. Have you tried using the camera to download the images via the supplied cable? If you've taken the images in RAW format, that could also be the problem. Try using a 2gb or smaller card in the camera to take some images and then download them using your usual method. If it works with the 2gb card but not with the 4gb, it's likely your reader isn't SDHC compliant.

Same problem but with a different camera. Turns out, these cameras are very... may I emphasize very... picky as to which cards to use. Try other off-brands and you'll be surprised as to what it takes.

Error E11 with DC4800 camera


This error "may" be associated with a battery problem. Is it possible that the battery is not charging properly.

Other things to try are as follows

1. Connect the camera to the AC adapter or insert onto the Camera Dock and press the Power button on the camera

2.
  • Remove all sources of power (batteries and AC Adapter) from the camera.
  • Remove the Kodak Picture Card or Compactflash Card.
  • Wait a few seconds.
  • Press the Power button twice.
  • Connect the appropriate Kodak AC Adapter to the camera.
NOTE: If you don't have the correct AC adapter, insert a set of fresh or fully charged batteries, according to the User's Guide.

3. The COMPACTFLASH Card could be corrupt. Reformat the card using a card reader or a PCMCIA card adapter in a notebook computer. ***Remember, reformatting erases all information from the card***

4. Try a different CF card as I have seen them fail causling errors.

Using the serial cable to download images


When you do a "save as" and save them back to the CompactFlash card the JPEG header is changed. So when you insert the card back into the camera, the camera doesn't recognize or see the file.
