    I have the same problem but I am scared of reformatting my card for fear that I will lose the pictures. How do I know if I reformat the card that the pictures will not get lost (they are wedding pictures). Please HELP!

    Same problem. Camera is 2.5 yrs old. the problem started 4 months ago. spent $130 to get it repaired. The repair lasted about 2 months. I now have photos on the card that I can't access, so reformatting is not a viable solution. Plus, I am now fairly sure that this problem will recur in the future.

    It looks to me like this camera, like just about every other consumer product, is basically an invitation to throw your money away.

It was a pain in the ***, but I was able to open and salvage my photos using the easy print option. Time for a new camera...

I repeatedly removed, ref-formatted and replaced the card.  I did this 3-4 times and, while the battery did run down rather quickly, the card error problem seemed to be resolved.

I took some sample pics, download to comptuter, replaced card in camera and was delighted to find them still visible, and no card error message came up.

I hope this is a permanent solution.... and will have to check again when I have a chance to download again.

Camera cards are never to be formatted on the computer....only in the camera. "card error" usually always means you need to format the card in the camera. This will erase it so download any pics you want to save first.

File error


Hi,
It is picture file that stops file transfer function, delete that picture and continue or go to memory card through my computer > mass storage drive and delete that file or copy rest of files and past in computer some where like my documents etc.
That particular picture file DSC03270.jpg is incomplete/ corrupted and causing problem in files transfer operation. Either delete it or bypass it and transfer rest of files from camera.
After transferring files to computer, format memory card to avoid any problem in next time as option would be in camera menu.
Let me know if you have additional question.
Thanks.

Message "unrecognized file format"


Is the error message appearing on the caemra or the computer?

I will in both cases recommend to format the SD card and to update your firmware.

Format your SD card. NOTE this will delete all existing data on your SD card.
Do the following:
  1. Insert the memory card into the camera. Make sure the card is firmly seated (push in the card until it clicks into place).
  2. Turn on the camera.
  3. Press the Menu button, then go to the Setup Menu.
Scroll up or down to the Format option, then press the OK button

Instructions to uploading new firmware:
Connect the camera with the computer.
Turn the camera on.
Click onto the link and follow the instructions.

Get message that memory card needs to be formatted (I have 2 cards - 16MB and 2GB).After I press OK, I get the message "Card Error" Same message on both cards.


Hello Dear

  • Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from Amazon.com or Buy.com
  • 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
  • 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  • 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  • 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
  • 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

    What does PICTURE ERROR mean? not in manual nor on line


    Sounds like you will need to format the memory card as the card has become corrupted. This will permanently erase all the data from the card and then you will be able to use it again. To format the card: Press the Ok button - right arrow to Mode Menu - down arrow to Card tab - right arrow to card setup - right arrow to format option. You will see format yes or no. Choose Yes and press ok. This will clear the picture error message and the card can be used again.

    Card will not format


    memory card? and SD card? whatever the card hook your camera to a usb to computer and find it under "my computer"

    look at all your drives you should have like c, d , e, f, g, h, select the last drive and see if it finds your card if so try formatting it through the computer, whatever you do dont select c or d to format. if problem persists buy a new SD. I find good deals on ebay or Walmart.
