The camera won't be affected, but if you think that the memory card has problem then what you should do, before connecting it to your computer, is turn off "auto play/run" on your computer. You don't want the card to run before you do anything with it. Then you can scan the memory card. The safest way would be to have the camera format the card. You'll lose the photos but it's better than dealing with a virus on your computer. It's not a guarantee that AVG will stop a virus before it infects your computer.
All of this is predicated on whether or not there is an actual virus on the memory card.
Here?s what happened
Sister in law gets a virus on dell laptop, Needs me to look at it. Has AVG.
Connects her Sony cybershot digital camera using Sony type 2 USB wire with a 1GB memory stick pro duo to my similar dell laptop and I immediately get an AVG pop up saying I have a virus.
Is it possible she got a virus on her computer, transferred it to her memory stick, not affect her camera in any way, then transfer from the camera to my computer?
And if so, can I connect the camera to my computer and use AVG to scan the camera and remove the virus?
BTW- Think I AVG?D, spybot?d and ccleaner?d the virus off my computer but still have to check hers.
PS - I also posted in the virus forum but no replies.
