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.

I have the Pentax Optio E30, is there a way that i can copy the pics from the internal memory card to a removable disc?


The instructions are in the "Copying images and Sound Files" section of the manual (page 109 in my copy). If you need a manual, you can download one at

I hope you didn't format the card because that erases the pics forever. You could get a separate card reader and try to download them that way. You could take the card to a store like Walmart and plug the card into one of their picture making machines. When your pics show up, you can print them or even make a cd of them.

If all you need is a way to download the pics that you take, just get a card reader. If you need some specific software that came with the camera, just go to the support section of the Pentax website and you can download it to your computer.

SD memory prohibits functioning of Pentax E30


I know that usually, you should format the card for the camera that your going to use. Try formating it in the camera and see if that works. Let me know if I can do anything else for you,
