Re: Card cannot be accessed

Try reading it with a card reader. If the computer can't see the pictures, it's likely the card is corrupted.


If the computer can see the pictures, then try another card. If the camera can't see that one either, then the most likely explanation is that the card door or the battery door didn't close securely. Each door has a micro switch that tells the camera that it's closed, and the camera won't take pictures if it thinks either door is open.
