My camera is not reading the memory card. I cannot take pictures, nor can I preview the ones that I took. However it will read the other memory card just fine...
Can I retrieve the photos taken and if so how?

Re: MEMORY CARD ERROR READ
The memory card that has failed- do you have access to a card reader for the computer?
If not we will try to use the camera.
Download from www.konvar .com - PC Inspector.
This is a recovery program install it and follow the prompts to locate the card in reader or camera will show on the computer a new drive.
Then allow the camera to scan the card and you to select where any recovered images to go.

Most probably a faulty memory card. Take it out and take a test photo without it, then see if you can see the preview of what photo you took that is now stored in the built-in internal memory of your camera. If that works, then you need to replace your memory card. If even that doesn't work then your camera needs servicing.
Yes, you need to have memory stick because camera has limited internal memory that can store few pictures only. Put new memory card, format it through camera Menu and copy internal memory pictures to memory stick, take our memory card from camera and delete internal memory pictures either one by one or format internal memory through camera Menu. Thanks.
If you dont put a memory card in your camera it is forced to record on and read from the internal memory (which is pretty small). If you do insert a memory card (is it a memory stick?) you can read the card but not the internal memory. Try it both with and without the memory stick.
Hey flowernthe, The error message “card cannot be read" means there was and error when the camera tried to access the memory card. To fix this you should make sure you are using the right kind of memory card, which for this kind of camera is a SD card, and it does not support SDHc cards. Since this camera uses SD cards I would make sure the slider on the side of the card is not set to the locked position. If this doesn't help I would make sure the memory card connecters are clean, and if they're not you can use a rubber eraser to clean them up. I hope this helps! Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead. Use Us.
