Some Memory Cards have like a little slide button on the side.If you have been taking the Memory Card out the little button might have been pushed.

Or if you have been taking the card out and sometimes forgeting it was out the pictures will not show up like it is supposed to .THhe unknow pictures without the memory card will sometimes say FORMAT ERROR.

You have several options:

1. see in the specification details of your camera what memory card is compatible for camera. for S630 it is SDHC/MMC/SD card (Up to 4GB Guaranteed). see if you're using memory card within this capacity and type. If you're using a different memory card type and capacity, try to use memorycard that is compatible with your camera.

2. try to use memory card to other devcie like cameras, cellphones and other devices and if it still has error problem, your card may be the one defective. use other cards.

3. try to take pictures without using memory card. use only the internal memory of camera. if camera still display this error meassage, camera needs service.

hope these options solve one of your problems. c",)

    in option number 2, if that camera still has the error message, the camera maybe the one defective not the card. if so, try to contact service centers.

I just had this problem with a brand new memory card. My camera is SDHC compatible and the memory card is SDHC, so there shouldn't have been a problem. But there was because I couldn't do anything!

So, I plugged the memory card into a reader and into my laptop. When it showed up in the Removable drive on my computer, I right clicked on it and did a FORMAT. Since my camera is SDHC compatible, I used FAT32 to reformat the card. If my camera was not compatible with SDHC, I would have used FAT16. It worked like a charm!

Have a DMC-FZ50 camera have used the same 2GB sandisk card and has worked with no problems..I recently turned my camera on and got the MEMORY CARD error please check card..If I'm to format the card how...


Please insert the card into the card reader in your computer/laptop. If it works, then copy all the pics to the computer and then from My Computer, format this card. If it does not work, then you must try a different computer.
After you have saved your pics, you can even format it with your camera. All cameras have an option to format in the settings.

Hi there lens error means lens guide pin damaged. Solution only replacing the lens But you can try these for luck.Please follow the steps and let me know the result.

4. Try removing batteries and memory card, wait 5 minutes and refit the battery only.
5. Now turn on camera( with out card ) and see ,if working then fix the memory card & again turn on the camera. If working then fine . Otherwise format the memory card and fix back in camera again & try. Make sure before format the memory card take a back up all photos in your computer then format. If no luck then reset or restore the camera setting by pressing Menu key for 2 sec .. in not done the press both Menu & self time key for 2 - 4 sec.

Card error


Try turning off the camera. While it's off remove and reinsert the memory card. If the same message appears, you should re-format the memory card. CAUTION: Formatting the memory card will delete anything on it. Copy the files off of it before formatting.

Formatting error on my olympus fe-340


never format the card from the computer... format using the camera.. use data recovery software to retrieve pictures if you have not formatted it... also make sure to "safely remove hardware" before actually unplugging the camera from the computer

Format error


The reason why is because that particular camera does not support memory cards that big.  Samsung only guarantees compatability up to 512MB, but the max I have ever heard working is 1GB.  If you do buy one, make sure it is a sandisk card as these have been tested and guaranteed to work in that camera.  Lexar may also work, but for sure 4GB is to big and is unsupported.  Hope it helps.  Please dont forget to rate!

Format error and flashing C:13:01


Format error is a problem with the memory card.

Try using a card reader and a computer to recover the files inside the card, saving them on the computer.
When you have finished try formatting the memory stick or replace it with a new one.
If you still get the error with a newly formatted memory stick, then that is a faulty mainboard inside the camera, but this is not common.
Usually you fix C:13:01 just formatting or replacing the memory card.

Formatting Memory Card


did you format your card? try going into the set-up menu on your camera and you should find a format option - THIS WILL ERASE ANYTHING YOU MAY HAVE HAD ON THE CARD...so if you have anything on there use a memory card reader and transfer it to your computer before formatting. If the formatting doesn't fix the card error message you could try formatting it on your computer (if you have a pc, go to 'my computer' and under 'removable devices' you should see the memory card, right click and choose format - i don't know the process for macs, but i would guess do a ctrl+click on the memory card when it appears on the desktop). If that still doesn't work the card is probably corrupt and you may need a new one.

Memory Card Error


Do not ever format a card.,any card via a computer That does it in. For camera use it will not be recognised. Put the card in the card reader and if there is anything at all on it delete it. Try to reformat in the camera again- failing that -new card.
