Ever encountered an error message while trying to view the pictures saved in the memory card? If the answer is ‘No’, then you always a possibility of getting one. However, if the answer is ‘Yes’, then you are probably facing one of the depressed times of your life. The error message while viewing pictures in a card primarily occurs when it gets corrupted or damaged. However, the problem is nullified if you have maintained an updated backup of all multimedia files saved in your memory card (which in most cases, is a rare situation). In such situations, an ideal way to recover your lost data is by using an advanced Picture recovery software.

Below mentioned are some error messages that appear on your camera’s LCD screen, when your card (of any type and size) gets corrupted:

  • “Card Error”
  • “Card could not be recognized”
  • “Card is not formatted”
  • “Card could not be used”
  • “A Media Card has been inserted that contains errors”

The above error messages become a reason for inaccessibility of all the data (audios, videos, images, etc.) stored in your memory card.


Memory card corruption can occur due to numerous reasons, such as, virus infection, improper formatting, file system damage, and interrupted read/write operation.


To resolve the all error messages caused due to card corruption, an ideal way is to format it. The solution allows you to save new data in your memory card. However, a common myth is that the data saved on your card becomes permanently deleted once the card is formatted. The truth is that the data still remains recoverable by using a third-party Digital picture recovery software.

Such Picture recovery tools employ effective recovery procedures, which comprehensively scan the formatted card and display the recovered data. These tools are readily available on the Internet. To select the best recovery tool, an easy way is to test the demo version of all the applications. It not only recovers data from all kinds of corrupted/formatted memory cards (SD, SDHC, XD, and MMC), but also restores data on your preferred location. Designed for both Mac OS X and Windows OS, the software is completely non-destructive.
