I was making some nice pictures just a minute ago and all of a sudden the camera starting acting strange. First, I got a Memory Card Error. The camera didn't respond well to the on and off button until I took the card out. Also, the top display went berserk with the memory card in: With the camera off part of the display was still on, and the main display wouldn't go on all time times with the memory card in.It currently does seem to work with another card in there, but it feels pretty awkward. Do you know what might be the cause, and what might solve it?

Grounds of the issue

The card contains different data structures for managing the data, easy accessing of data, and fast processing. When these data structures gets damaged, stored files can not be located and thus they become inaccessible.

So that when you have another card, then try and change the card over to check if this can correct the big mistake. Step 2: Formatting the CardOnce the digital camera are unable to write to the memory card successfully, it might be the wrong correct format. You’d better put the cardboard back inside the camera and format it in the option. This process will make sure that the credit card would be compatible.Step 3: Checking the ContactsThe contacts for the back of the charge card can become dirty or degrade completely. If the contacts are simply just dirty, then the small eraser enable you to clean them. Also, try using compressed air to blow inside the memory compartment to reduce any dust for the contacts.Fix it?
