Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX8 Digital Camera
Help! I took some precious pics and I cannot retrieve them because of this error.
I tried to use my card reader but it was not compatible with the SDHC card.
Do you think my pics were deleted somehow? What do you suggest I do?
You may fix the memory card error and recover your files by follow this memory card recovery guide which helped me last time:

I know this is an old post, but for others that read this, it's no problem at all to get deleted photos and videos back. Please see this post for several free software options that you can download:

The reader is probably not capable of reading the high density memory cards. Has it ever worked with this card in the past? If it has then something is likely wrong with the card, if this reader hasn't worked with this card in the past then try a friends card reader and see if that works. Otherwise if the card is corrupted then you may try some restoration utilities, although these typically only work if the pictures have been accidentally deleted, not when the memory has been corrupted or damaged. You can try this utility, I've had very good luck with accidentally deleted pictures with it:

I recently bought a DMC-TZ3 and have been researching memory cards. Several sites sell cards with the camera and list the card type. I would suggest buying one of these cards. Any cards larger than 2gb must be SDHC type SD cards. There appear to different types of SDHC cards, 1.0, 1.1 and 2.0. Check out Wikipedia.org for a description. 2.0 cards are not compatable for devices developed prior to 2.0 so that may be the reason for the camera problem. So far I haven't seen anything that states what type SDHC card the camera requires. I found a computer memory site that that sells memory that they say will work. There may be others.

Hi - You will need to get an SDHC reader and then try the following procedure.
You can either plug in you camera to the PC as it should appear as a “Removable Drive” or put the card in a card reader attached to your PC.
Next, if you are comfortable with using a PC then you can download a FREE utility that will recover your photos from the following link:
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:
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 recover your pictures to your PC safely!
Please take a moment to rate this solution & let us know if the information given was useful to you – Good Luck!
