I was looking through my photos and all of a sudden the camera screen says card error. I tried looking at the photos in the camera again, using an adapter, and also using a few recovery programs but, nothing seems to work.
I have an Olympus XD-picture card type M...
My baby's first birthday pics are there. Are my pictures lost?

Re: fujifilm finepix s700 card error
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.
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:

Take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. This is to reduce the chance of you overwriting some of your "lost" photos. There are many good freeware photo recovery software options that are available to help you recover your photos. This blog article reviews and outlines several of the better ones. Now AFTER you've recovered your photos, you'll need to format your card IN YOUR CAMERA using your camera's built-in format feature. This will rejuvenate the card, and will prevent this from happening again (bet you never formatted the card when you first got it?). Formatting the card when first used is necessary to preserve the card's file structure. It may work fine at first if not formatted, but in nearly all cases it will corrupt with time if it wasn't formatted. Note that formatting will also erase the card, so again format only after you've recovered and saved your photos onto your computer.
Most likely ur card is corrupt. take the card out and there should be tiny slider on the side of the card with arrow showing in one direction. ur card , slide it from where it is to the other side and see if u can retrieve ur photos or make it to work again. even if it works again , take ur photos out and format the card before u use it again.
Problems typically are pretty rare with Panasonic Lumix digital cameras. On those occasions where you do have an issue, though, look for an error message on the Panasonic camera for some clues as to how to fix the problem.
he seven tips listed here should help you troubleshoot your Panasonic camera error messages.
Built-in Memory Error error message. If you see this error message with your Panasonic camera, the internal memory area of the camera is either full or corrupted. Try downloading photos from the internal memory. If the error message continues to appear, you may need to format the internal memory area.
Memory Card Locked / Memory Card error message. Both of these error messages are related to the memory card, rather than the Panasonic camera. If you have an SD memory card, check the write protect switch on the side of the card. Slide the switch up to unlock the card. If the error message persists, it's possible the memory card is corrupted and needs to be formatted. It's also possible the memory card was formatted using another device that is not compatible with Panasonic's file structure system. Format the card with your Panasonic camera to fix the problem ... but keep in mind that formatting the card will erase any photos stored on it.
No Additional Selections Can Be Made error message. If your Panasonic camera allows you to "save" photos as your "favorites," you may find this error message because the camera has a limited number of photos that can be labeled as favorites, usually 999 photos. You cannot mark another photo as a favorite until you remove the favorite label from one or more photos. This error message also may occur if you're trying to delete more than 999 photos at one time.
No Valid Picture error message. This error message typically refers to a problem with the memory card. Most of the time, you'll find this error message when you try to play back images from the memory card and the memory card is corrupted, empty, broken, or has been formatted with another camera. To fix the memory card, you must format it, but formatting a memory card causes all photos stored on it to be lost. Try inserting the memory card in another device or in your computer and try downloading any photos stored on it before formatting it with your Panasonic camera.
Please Turn Camera Off And Then On Again error message. At least this error message says "please." This error message most likely occurs when one of the parts of the camera's hardware is malfunctioning, usually a jammed lens housing. To try to fix this problem, start by turning the camera off for a few seconds before turning it back on. If this doesn't fix the problem, try resetting the camera by removing the battery and memory card from the camera for at least 10 minutes. Replace both items and then try turning the camera on again. If the lens housing is jamming as the lens moves through its zoom range, try gently cleaning the housing, removing any debris or grime. If all of these steps don't fix the problem, you'll probably need a repair center for the camera.
This Battery Cannot Be Used error message. With this error message, you've either inserted a battery that's incompatible with your Panasonic camera or you've inserted a battery that has dirty contacts. Gently clean the metal contacts with a dry cloth. In addition, make sure the battery housing is free of debris. You sometimes may see this error message if you're using a battery that's not manufactured by Panasonic. If the third-party battery is working OK to power the camera, you probably can ignore this error message.
This Picture Is Protected error message. You'll see this Panasonic camera error message when the photo you've selected has been protected from deletion. Try working through the camera's menus to figure out how to remove any protection labels for the photo files.
Keep in mind that different models of Lumix cameras may provide a different set of error messages than is shown here. If you are seeing Panasonic camera error messages that aren't listed here, check with the user guide for your model of Panasonic Lumix camera for a list of other error messages, or visit the Support area of the Panasonic Web site.
You should try some photo recovery software to rescue the files on your camera memory card, here are some you may rely on. Both programs can also recover videos and music. Photo Recovery Software (for Windows) Mac Photo Recovery Software (for Mac OS X)
Be careful: Before your pictures are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the memory card in case the original files(your pictures) are overwritten.
If no error code on the LCD screen, then you have either very weak batteries or a bad CCD problem/malfunction. One way to test the batteries is plug in your AC/DC source and try to turn on your camera again and try taking some pictures. Also make sure you have a memory card present in the camera. If it works, then it was the batteries. If it still doesn't work, then its the CCD. Time for repair.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.
As all your photos are stored in your Canon digital camera's memory stick you could tryCard Data Recoverywhich will help you recover pics without casusing any damage to your photos. My bff recommended this extremely easy-to-usel software to me and he had used it successfully to recovered photos, music, etc. from his Sony memory card. Best wishes!
When this happened to me, I accidentally bought a "type M" card and was told my camera was not compatible with it. I simply went to Fuji's website at www.fujifilmusa.com and upgraded my camera to be able to use this card (of course this would only work if you have a Fuji camera as well as the card)Go to "support & contact center-Digital Camera software & support" at the top of the screen. Select your camera and it will walk you thru the rest.
I'd love to hear if it worked out for you.
