I have a 1GB XD Picture Card but when i try to format it i can only set the capacity to 999mb.

I didn't notice that until it had completed formatting but by then it is too late.

I now have a 999mb XD Picture Card.

Does anyone know how i can get back my 25mb?


A:Solved: Format 1GB XD Picture Card

The card size is likely expressed in "Decimal" GB, Windows reports in "Binary" GB.

Same applies to hard drives, I assume all flash drives and camera cards will be similar, based on a card I have just tried now, the difference is a factor of about 1.024 between reported and labelled.

A megabyte is 1,000 bytes in Decimal, but 1,024 Bytes in Binary.

You have not "lost" anything in reality?

i am trying to do something but it does not seem to be working. could some one please help me.

i have some photos on my computer which i want to put on to my fujifilm xd picture card so that i can take them to a shop to get the printed out. i have made sure that the file is a jpeg and the filename has no spaces. i then copied the pictures and attached my camera to my computer.
i went into My Computer to access the folder where the pictures are stored on the camera, i knew it was the right place as the photos that where already on my camera where showing. i then pasted the photos and they were then shown as on my camera's picture card.

i then disconnected the camera and checked that the photos had been stored on the picture card, but it just said "read-error" where the photos i had just copied should have been.

i have a finepix a204 digital camera.

are the pictures on the memory card so that i can print them out at the shop? or am i doing something wrong?
could someone please help me and tell me what i should be doing.

Ive recently bought a 2gb picture card it was working fine but all of a sudden has come up xd write protect and will not let me save photographd on it. What do i do?

A:XD Picture Card. Help?

Check the card to see if there is a little mechanical slide on it.
If so,it's in the write protect position.
Also check your cameras menu to see if there is a write protect option.
Any camera software on your computer might also have this option.

Hi all, it's been a while.
Anyway I attended my twin grandchildrens 1st B-Day Party in Saskatchewan, Canada and when I tried to download pictures from my camera onto my daughters computer, it would not download them and now when I put the XD Picture card back into my camera, it will not read the card it states "Card Error". I took the camera and card to a photo shop and they tried to download them as well, using another camera and it still did not work.
I don't care about the picture card BUTTTTT I really want the pictures that are on the card.
Also, all the pictures my daughter took, she accidentally deleted them all, whats the chance of that happening!! So we have NO pictures of the Twins 1st birthday, Is there anything I can do to get the pictures from the card (if there still there) that states "Card Error???

Hi all, need a little advice. Wondering if anyone has experienced this before... I keep seeing the issue in other blogs, but can't seem to find a fix yet.

Im installing a new PCI Video card in my desktop at work. This is my old desktop that previously had a video card for dual monitors, IT took out the card and used the pc for something else. Now i have it back and Im trying to set it up for dual monitors again. Im not a pro (yet ), so please bear with me.

OS: Windows XP
New Card: GeForce 6200 512MB DDR2 (NVIDIA) -its brand new by the way.

Here's the issue:

When I first installed the new card, I had blank screens regardless of which port the monitor(s) were plugged into (original video port or new vid card). -Remove the card, all is fine. Install in a different PCI slot.. same problem. Went into BIOS and changed the settings for video from "Auto" to "Onboard/PEG" so that it will acknowledge a new card only if installed. -No dice, still have the same problem.

I know the IT guy had this exact problem the last time he installed the vid card on this pc and he managed to fix it. However, he is gone now and Im at a loss.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

A:New Video Card - No Picture

First, clarification. Are you actually using a PCI card? I don't think the 6200 ships in PCI form. It is likely PCI-E or possibly AGP. Second, if it is PCI-E or AGP, there is likely only one slot. And with a 6200 you may need a more powerful power supply.

Hello everyone, new member.
I have tried doing a search on this already, but it seems like my problem is different from other already similar threads, or I couldn't find it.

Anyways I'm having problems with my GE company SmartMedia xD-Picture Card.
I plug it into the USB and it doesn't do anything, nothing at all. Usually a message at the lower right corner will pop up telling me that there is a new device plugged in and I can click on that and open up to see my new pictures. Or it will automatically open up my new pictures in a "photo program" of some kind.

I have tried plugging it into USB's I know are working, but I get nothing. I do not see any error messages of any kind, and the green light comes on when I plug it in.
I have tried doing troubleshooting procedures but the listed problems are not same as mine.
When I plug it in I have double clicked on the "safely remove hardware" icon and it shows my wireless internet connection and also shows a "USB mass storage device". When I unplug it, the USB mass storage device disappears, so I'm assuming this is the device? I have tried clicking into properties and going through the troubleshooting procedures, but it doesn't work.
When I plug it in or take it off it makes that "windows sound" over the speakers, so it must be recognizing something?

I have also tried looking through my picture files to see if it automatically put them into any of them, b... Read more

I've had this problem for awhile with my graphics card. I currently run a GeForce 8400GS and it works fine; I've never had any problems with it. I now want to change to my newer card, a 9800GT, which I've had for awhile now, but haven't been able to get working.

I've uninstalled any drivers currently on the computer, placed the card into the correct slot and booted up the computer. I get all of the sounds, the little beeps and what not; but no picture on the screen.

I was just wondering what might be wrong and how I can solve the problem; whether it's human error, a card error or something to do with my computer?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I took my olympus xd picture and place into my laptop and all of a sudden all of pictures were gone. I read another thread that there is a way to recover the pictures. My laptop tells me the card needs to be reformatted.

Thanks for your help

A:olympus xd picture card

you maybe out of luck. It sounds as if either your laptop or camera isn't working properly. More then likely the card reader on your laptop either needs to have it's driver reinstalled or needs to be replaced. Your camera may still have manuctioned and may be formating cards improperly. In this case it would be able to read them but other devices won't. As for recovering any of the hundreds of free file recovery programs would work as long a you put the card ina card reader.

I've got an older Olympus Camedia D-395 camera with a 128 MB Olympus xD-picture card. When I attach the camera using the USB cable to my desktop (WinXP) it doesn't recognize the camera but I can open the card manually and copy the pictures to a folder. I went ahead and copied my pictures, erased the card, and used it this weekend.

Today I tried to attach the camera using the USB cable to the same computer, still wouldn't recognize it, but now I can't access the pictures at all and my camera says "Card Error".

I've read around online and I've tried sticking into my desktop's card reader and I have a similar problem, it displays the pictures as there but it can't show what they are.

Any ideas on what I should try next?

A:XD picture card no longer works

Welcome to TSG. Your card may have given up the ghost. Never keep important pics or files on flash cards. If you are unable to transfer/read the pics through the camera, you can try a card reader, but may get the same results. If another card works, then the problem is definitely with the current card. If the only option you are given is to format the card, then you might have to do that. Immediately afterwards, pull the card out, and don’t use it for anything until you can download a program like Recuva to try and recover the pictures.

could it have something to do with the monitor/refresh rate?

Windows cannot verify the digital signature for the drivers required for this device. A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that might be malicious software from an unknown source. (Code 52)

If anyone can help I sure would appreciate it! And if someone could tell me maybe what happened?

A:32mg xD-Picture Card Problems

If you use the panorama feature of the camera you have to buy an Olympus card for the panorama to work. Otherwise any brand xD card works fine.

There are a lot of ways to mess up the card. Switching off or disconnecting the camera in the middle of a download can affect the card. Removing the card with the camera turned on can cause problems. Formatting the card from the computer has been known to cause problems. Regularly removing the card to use in a card reader can damage pins if you donít put it in right. And sometimes they just quit.

I have a Fujifilm 3800 digital camera. I'm using a 512 MB xD Picture Card. I originally took about 900 pictures with that camera on that 512 MB Picture Card. I downloaded the pictures to My Computer into a folder in My Pictures. Now I want to transfer some of the pictures back to the 512 MB Picture Card through my FinePix Fujifilm xD Card Reader which appears as Drive G on my computer. I want to show the pictures on my TV by putting the xD card into a SanDisk. When I originally had the pictures on the card (when I first took the pictures) I put the card in the SanDisk and it showed the pictures just fine. However, after I put the pictures in my computer, I used my camera to completely clear the pictures from the xD card. I successfully loaded about 400 pictures back onto the card. I couldn't view them through the camera, but I could view them on the TV using the SanDisk and when I put the card in the card reader they do come up on my computer screen so I know they're on the card. Now, I'm trying to add more pictures to the card and I'm getting an error in my computer that says, "Cannot copy (picture number) 0419: the directory or file cannot be created." Why do you think I'm getting this message? I thought I should be able to load many more pictures back onto the card - possibly up to 900 like I originally had on the card.

You must use the same folder structure and names on the XD card that the camera created in the first place.
The simplest way to recreate the folder structure is to format the card in the camera (obviously you should have kept copies of the pictures on it)

Heya guys,
