I have had success with this... Download this camera photo recovery program called asoftech photo recovery
http://www.asoftech.com/apr/index.html

You have to use a card reader either on your computer or an external USB card reader. Put the card in the card reader, open the recovery program, then select the drive where files are deleted, then press "Start" and wait for it to do it's magic.

Do not worry. You have chances to get them back. No matter you accidentally deleted files or formatted the digital device and lost data, Do not panic as you definitely have chance to get them back as long as you take the right option.

First things first - Stop using the device immediately! Then connect the device where your lost media files located to a PC which has installed Photo Recovery, a program which is able to recover pictures, videos and music files. Get the program here,


If you are running Windows, then try Photo Recovery.
For Macintosh users, try Photo Recovery Mac.

But you should remember - the more you use your device before data recovery, the less likely you may be able to recover the media files back! So STOP using the device ASAP.

Getting message on screen of Read Error while trying to solve the "Memory full" message, any ideas?


Memory full, if it is true, you should backup some pictures and delete them from the card.
Read error, can indicate a corrupted file, dirty contacts on the memory card or a camera malfunction.
for 1 backup all photos and format the card. 2. Clean the contacts on the card and in the camera.
3. Contact a FUJI dealer.
Everything is in the manual (still online) on page 112

Save away all photos you can and erase/format the memory card.
If the error still continues, try replace the card with another and test again.
Clean the card connector and the one in the camera with a cotton bud and some alcohol.
Memory cards are rarely make problems, but sometimes happen.

I am getting a "Memory


Its a very common problem with S400,S410 and some others.

As a case study, see the following error message on the Canon IXUS 130 when trying to view some photos previously stored in the memory card SDHC

"Memory Card Error"

Every single photo stored on the memory card becomes inaccessible after the above error message. In addition, no more photos can be stored on the memory card. In short, the card can not be read or written.

Cause:
The above error message that makes all the pictures inaccessible is mainly caused due to corruption of the memory card. Reasons why you are responsible for the above error message is virus infection, interrupted read / write operation, and human error.

Resolution:
The resolution for the above error message is the format of memory card into the camera. The process erases all data previously stored and allows you to save the new data. While the format is a good resolution for users who do not require the old data, it is fatal to users such as photographers, detective agencies, etc, to save critical data on your memory card. However, the formatted data recovery day is now an easy process. It is therefore necessary to use an advanced part of third parties. A tool for image recovery is readily available on the Internet by one click.

Data Recovery is an application of high-end recovery that recovers data from almost all formats SDHC Card, XD and MMC. The read-only photo recovery tool also allows you to restore data in the defined location. The software runs on Mac OS X and Windows.

Hope helps.

Camera wont read memory card error message say: memory card error, please check the card. I dont think its the card becaouse other devices can read it


There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". Some include trying to use of a 4GB SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Others include problems with the tiny slide switch on the side of the card, or the electrical contact switch internal to the camera. The problem may also arise from simple formatting problems if the card has never been formatted in the camera (note that this will also erase the card). Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link.

Memory card locked, already tried little switch on the side


It may have to be unlocked in the camera settings. My phone has a lock feature for photos, to prevent accidenta erasing.

Memory card is locked, how do I unlock this?


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.
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.

All my pictures erased from the card without using the erase function . When I tried to look at my pictures, the message no images appeared.


You may have erased the photos by mistake. Try reading the memory card with your pc using a usb card reader to see if the images are possibly still there. Or you can go to this link (below) and use the free trial software to recover your photos.

Canon A560 will not erase pictures


Two possible solutions.

1. Apple users have reported that the switch on the memory cards performs the file lock function in either extreme positions Lock/Unlock. In some cases they have achieved success in centering the Lock/Unlock switch allowing access to the read/write operation of the memory card

2. Connect to PC
Access drive via windows explorer
Right click on drive (MEMORY CARD)
Select properties
Confirm that RO (Read Only) is not selected.
Selected RO
Try reading card
Repeat properties un-select RO
Try deleting files

If not successful card is likely defective

Hope this helps?

Problem with new memory card


Hi,

I read an article about the same problem.....
Ill tell you the information about it.....

There are few situations when you find that your memory card is not functioning as expected and instead of data, you are getting few error messages:

· “CARD ERROR”
· “ Memory Card Error”
· “Card Not Initialized”
· “Read Error”

Display of either error message forces the user to think of solution as the affected memory card may be the house of the relevant digital data including photos, videos and audios.

Most of such error messages are curable through formatting the card.
As you said you have tried this already but no success......

So your card is suffering from the problem that the card is corrupt harshly.

This is the worst defect in the memory cards......So better get it changed..

The memory card corruption reveals that the data will remain inaccessible as formatting has failed to cure the issue. So the best deal would be to have photo recovery software. Photo recovery is also required in case of formatting success.
Picture recovery is quite practical through photo recovery software which benefits the users through their scanning ability and power to address each specific case of photo loss.........



Hope my info helps you.........
Thanx
