Yes the card is at 100% of available memory, when I tried to delete some photos nothing happened, just a repeat of the error message.
And on the computer also nothing happened when we tried to view the contents.
Yes, we have Windows 7.
Hello Richard, It is in , but where do I find the drive letter?
I am not sure I am in the correct information place, I am at the listing of the hard disk drives of which I have two, the first reads OS(C:), the other is backup, V
The V is still in my reply to you, and still there where you respond about the V disappearing, V
It is me who is not understanding .....where is the V you are referring to?
The card is back in the computer!!!
My route was: Start...All programs...Computer...Hard disk drives= OS(C:)
this memory card holds all our photos of our adventure in Egypt, including views of the razor wired pirate protected ship in the Red Sea.
No.. that was just me signing off to you instead of using my full name....
After Start in the All programs list there is one reading Canon Utilities, in there I find quite a list ...the top one reads Camera Window DC8 Readme next is Camera Window Uninstall then other listings, the last reads CANON iMAGE GATEWAY Task.
Am I in the right place now?
I have looked very carefully, the Memory Card is not listed at all.
No, but the photos on the other two cards we have just tried are in our photo gallery as we down loaded them last week , they are there safe and sound, would down loading them remove the need for the computer to list them when the cards are re-inserted in the slots. That makes me wonder how can we download further photos from these two cards we have tried just now?
No cards were being detected and listed by the computer.
But I have to go to a meeting this afternoon to some-one who has a computer, would it be safe to take the problem card, and the two current cards that we downloaded last week and ask if I could investigate on hers, or perhaps I might be spreading a corruption???
Thankyou for your help, I will do as you advise, not at the moment as I have to go now. Hey ho...these things are sent to try us.
I am printing off your efforts so that I can get back to you some-time, either sorted or not we shall see.......
Thanks again Vanessa
Dear *****, Thankyou for your help the other day.
By doing double and even triple checks with other cameras and mine we were able to prove to ourselves that the problem was 'other'. We discovered that the card in question is a Samsung adaptor for a micro SD card. And that the micro SD card is missing from it. We are now searching all nooks and crannies in the house for the tiny card, it must be lurking somewhere, nothing odd or questionable is ever discarded in this establishment!
Sorry to have raised a red herring for you.
At Christmas I ran through the contents of the Samsung adaptor on my camera, so the micro SD card must have been in the adaptor then, I removed the card, stored it in the original plastic bag it arrived in, and put it safely away.
I was not aware that Amazon had supplied on purchase of the camera and parts a Samsung adaptor and micro SD, there was no note of explanation that the card was not whole bodied.
One lives and learns, at least we know when we find it that three years of photos will still be there. Thankyou again Vanessa
