Digi camera problem

  Myrddyn 14:40 24 Jun 2006

I bought a used camera from ebay which I'm very pleased with. All is fine until a try to use the memory card that came with it. Only one light comes on and I'm unable to use the camera and have to remove the batteries to switch it off. My laptop won-t read the card either. The card came with pictures on which I deleted.

Can you borrow another card to try?

Not sure if it applies to all memory cards but I understood you should only format them in the camera and never in XP as it can ruin the card.

How do I reformat, the camera won't turn on with the card in.
I deleted the pictures with the card in the camera - I think. Hasn't worked since.

Looks like you need a new card, Some will format in a Computer but you are going to have to use a Card reader to do it. Also if it will not turn on with card in, you can hardly make the card worse by formatting in Comp
