Memory Card Error

If you get a "memory card error" message on your camera and there are no photos that you want on the card, the first step is to format the card through the camera menu.

Read your camera manual to see how to format your memory card. If this does not help, try another memory card (eg the small 16/32mb card that came in the box with the camera). If this card does not display a "memory card error", then the other card is at fault.

If you do have valuable photos on the card, then DO NOT format the card and DO NOT take any more photos. You need to undertake a photo recovery. For options on Photo Recovery, click here. Once you have recovered your photos and archived them, then reformat the memory card through the camera as outlined above.
