Olympus camedia says format or power off

I have about 140 pics on my memory card. When my card got full I took it out and put an new one in. When I went to download pics it wasn't reading the card, so I put the card back in the cam and it gave me the option of Powering off or Format, I tried the format and than it said warning will erase all photos, so I canceled. Anyway to get these pics off of there?? HELP

    My memory card says that it needs to be formated. I want to recover the pictures. I tried to download Photo Rec, but the link (which I got from this site) didn't work. Any other options?

First do not panic! It is possible to recover your pictures if you take care. Take the card from the camera (powered off)and if it has a "write protect" tab then lock it now. Do not try and write anything to the card or you risk causing more problems. If you are comfortable with using a PC then you can download a FREE utility that will recover your photos from the following link: http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/PhotoRec If you need something a little more "user friendly" then you will need to buy the software. If you search the web for photo recovery software you will find many. One I have used successfully is RescuePro that used to be bundled with some Sandisk products. Now you can get it from the link below: http://www.lc-tech.com/software/rescuepr... You can try the demo to see what you can recover before buying. Remember - Do NOT try & write anything back to the card until you can recovered your pictures to your PC safely! If you are unable to read the card in the camera use an external card reader with these programs. Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!

I HAVE A NEW SAMSUNG NX CAMERA IT SAYS MEMORY FULL I ONY TOOK ONE PIC


Did you buy and insert a memory card?
Is the memory card unlocked?
The internal memory is very small and not fit to shoot your pictures.
If you did put in a new memory card, please goto the setup menu and format the card.

Mom took pictures today but forgot that there wasn't a memory card in it. The pictures that she took really meant something to her and she wants to get them off the internal memory...help


you have to plug the power charger as well as the usb into the camera , also if you have the image saver software installed the camera comes up as canon F and you click on it for video (card) or internal memory , this should get mom's pic's downloaded.

The card may have become corrupted. Use a separate card reader and download any pictures from the card. Then, insert it into the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions.

Camera still reads full and will not work when new memery card installed


I had the same problem. Your memory card likely has too much memory. I put in a 4G card and it would not take a photo. Every time the camera went off it said "Error - Card Full".
You have 2 options.
1.) You can remove the memory card and use the internal memory to take photos (it will only hold 20 pics) and transfer them onto the memory card by shutting the camera off, inserting the card, turning the camera on, wait for the menu to clear and then shutting the camera off again and removing the card. This does work, but you are limited in the number and quality of photos that you will get.
2.) Get a smaller capacity memory card. I went out and bought a 2G card. Funny thing is that the camera wouldn't even recognize it at first. When I turned the camera on a message saying "Please wait" kept flashing on the screen. I waited 10 minutes and just shut it off and pulled the card again. I took the card home and formatted it on my PC. When I put it in the camera the next time it worked fine. So to save you some trouble, buy a smaller card and FORMAT it on your computer before trying it in the camera. It will save you a headache. After all of that BS I finally got the stupid thing to work. It takes beautiful pics but I will not be buying another Cuddeback. My next trail cam will be a different brand for sure. Not worth the hassle IMO.

get a memory card reader and try to download pics from card to comp-then open and click any folders you see related to memory card-card will show up as a new drive letter in my computer-pics may be in different folder and still be there-if you can't find pics at all go to sandisk.com and get recovery software to see if you can still retrive them

Ativa memory card


The card is probably formatted with a FAT16 filesystem. Try reformatting the card with a FAT32 filesystem.
