Yes, there's something you can do. Stop using the card and replace it. Even reputable, high-quality cards have failures. And every such device has a limited lifespan. Don't risk it. You may do something which will cover up the problem, only for it to reoccur and cause you to lose images. SanDisk offers a long warranty in most countries — depending on the ...

Why not save all the confusion and just format it in the camera? Both Mac and Windows can read, write and format exFAT, but you need to make sure you are using MBR rather than GUID and the correct sector size that the camera prefers. Rather than have to work all this out, especially if you're not even sure what they mean… just let the camera do it instead. ...

Is there something I can do to solve this situation ? Get another card.

Good (not super) quality 64GB cards are around 10 to 14 "generic bucks" (US Dollars, Euros, UKP). "Good quality" defined as "built as designed by a reputable brand, no reason to expect b grade product or counterfeits". This actually puts the usefulness of reusing them at all in question - instead of using them once, periodically downloading and until they ...

Thanks to everyone who responded. I hired a scuba diver and he found the camera (almost one week to the day in 20' of water). He rinsed the SD card for me before I picked it up. Put SD card I my laptop and it's like it never happened. My photos have been rescued. EDIT: I was asked to post a photo of the submerged/rescued card...

but I'd rather import them properly, rather than copy them, to retain the quality. I don't know the answer to the Windows part of this question, but there's a fundamental worry you have here that I want to assure you over. That "import" dialog box you were seeing before doesn't really do any magic. It just launches a program like Lightroom or some other ...

Backup your data now. What capacity out of the 64GB has already been written? Maybe you bought a fake one and the real capacity has been reached, so you get sudden failure. These fakes often appear larger, (e.g. 32GB instead of 64GB, or even 8GB instead of 64GB), then once the small capacity is filled, they lie to the user and overwrite the EXISTING DATA to ...

It depends. As the sentence above was a quote from me, let me elaborate: While cameras are really good at writing images to an SD card, most of them are only so-so when it come to reading a modified SD card. This includes a card that was formatted in computer as well as making sense of temporary or meta files that were written by a computer. Some cameras ...

I can only strongly recommend not to format the SD card for use in the camera on a Mac or PC. A lot of write failures that I hear from in the Fuji and Sony context (including freezing of the camera itself) have been traced back to SD cards that were not formatted in camera. Telling us, that you ran into a full SD card and are only now creating a backup of ...

My solution to this problem was to format the 64gb card in the camera which produced a non-working card giving the Full error. I then put the card in my laptop and using Aomei partition manger reduced the partition size to below 32gb. The card then worked perfectly in the camera. Though obviously half capacity. If you reformat the card in the camera it will ...

Beyond the particulars of each specific camera and how they may handle cards formatted on other devices, there are also benefits to regularly formatting flash type memory. Bad sectors are mapped out by the card's controller. Most memory cards have a bit more memory than their listed capacity. When a bad sector is identified, the memory controller will ...

The Brother P-Touch label makers have a thin label. I have the PT-1290, which is many years old and still going. It has multiple font sizes, but it depends on how much text you want to put on it. I've used it to number my SD and Compact Flash memory cards. I've had no problems with the labels in multiple cameras and card readers. I'll reiterate what many ...

This is normal and expected. It's basically queuing theory. Here's an analogy that might help in visualizing this: If you walk into an empty store (sensor/camera), grab an item (light/data), and get in line (buffer) for the cash register, they'll ring you up right away (write to SD card), and you're on your way. If you walk into a packed supermarket and ...

I know a trick First of all you cut up a piece of paper and after writing on it with pencil you put a layer of transparent adhesive tape which goes around the SD card wrapping the paper to the SD card This is how the final result looks like. What makes this method better is the fact that you can use any kind of pen or pencil that works on paper. I have ...

According to the answers.microsoft.com support question, How to import photos from SD card to Windows 10, Open Control Panel > Autoplay, where you can choose what happens when you insert a card with image files on it. From the screenshot, it appears you want to select the option, "Import photos and videos (Photos)".
