Hi,

The MSDC error is to do with the memory card having bad sectors or has become corrupt.

Basically you have to reformat the card to get it working or take the card out of the camera and put it in a card reader and see if you can get the computer to recognize the card that way.


Regards.

Camera says MSDC when i plug it in to charge


That's completely normal. The camera is simply acknowledging that it's connected to a computer. The MSDC will go away when you disconnect.

My battery and memory card are in correctly, and it has been "charging for two days, but everytime I turn it on a blue screen that reads MSDC comes on and no matter what buttons I press nothing...


The MSDC simply tells you that the camera is connected to the computer. In order to use the camera to take pictures, you have to disconnect it from the camera.

I just bought the camera and am trying to charge it. I am not getting an LED light but instead a blue screen that says "MSDC" in white letters. I have checked the battery and storage disk...


Are you charging it by plugging it into a computer? The "MSDC" you see usually means "Mass Storage Device Class", which basically means the computer is using the storage on the camera as a removable drive. This would usually happen when plugging a camera into the computer via USB. There is usually an AC adapter that comes with a camera, or a separate charger for just the battery. If there was no charger that came with it, the camera is probably still charging. If the camera is on, try turning it off and plugging it in. Remember, even if it shows "MSDC", it is probably still charging. Hope this helps!

I just plugged my new one in and this appears on the screen: MSDC What does this mean?


This means that the camera recognizes it has been connected to a computer. You can now download pictures from the camera. Just do it from the computer, not the camera.

Msdc


i have the same camera and the same problem but i have found out msdc means mass storage device, for the camera to work you have to have a memory card inside it. im getting one tomorrow for mine, so hopefully that should solve the problem :)
