Tip & How-To about Cameras

If your camera will not read or transfer internal images on to memory card

When your camera will not transfer images onto memory card this is often because the image storage has been set to 'Auto'. You need to set it back to internal memory temporarily to allow you to copy the images over to the card. Once you have done this you can set the camera back to 'Auto' and this will reset the system and you will now have access to all of the images on the card.

This particular procedure works with all cameras but the steps outlined here are for Kodak in particular.

Please follow these steps;
1) Insert the card

2) Turn the camera to Auto

3) Press review - "reading memory card"

4) Press menu and scroll down to image storage and press ok

5) Select Internal Memory and press OK

6) Scroll down to Copy - Copy Pictures to memory card

7) Scroll down to ALL and press OK - you should see "Copying" displayed

8) When the screen goes back to the main menu - Scroll to Image storage again and select Auto - OK - "Reading memory card"

You should now be able to see the pictures from your internal memory saved onto your memory card and your camera is once again ready to use.

how can i transfer built in memory card to memory card if built in already full


Hi bacayemilita,

I think you meant that you need to transfer your images from your camera's built in storage to your external memory card.

Please follow the below steps :-

  1. Connect you camera to your computer via the USB cable and then switch your camera on.
  2. Once you switch the camera on you will find an option for mass storage mode , please select that option.
  3. Remember to remove the memory card from your camera while you do the above step.
  4. Once you select the mass storage mode , you will find a removable drive being displayed in my computer , in this drive you will find all your images, so all you need to do is copy them all to your hard disk drive.
  5. Now if you want to copy these images to your memory card , you can either do it via connecting your memory card to a card reader and copy the images from your hard disk onto it Or you can connect the camera while keeping the memory card in , and you will find another removable drive for memory card , when you select mass storage mode.
  6. When you find the drive , just simply copy the contents from your hard disk to your memory card's removable drive.

Hope this helps ..:) Your feed back would be greatly appreciated.

kodak easyshare m360 says memory full after 3 photos i just bought the camera, what i shell do < shell i buy memory card or usb for it ?


You need to switch the camera over to saving pictures directly onto the SD card.
  • Menu
  • Cam settings
  • Chose AUTO or SD card option
  • Press OK to SD card
Note: If the SD card isn't in the camera or is unreadable the camera will automatically go back to saving you taken pictures on the internal memory.

If you experience problems:
The lever on your SD card might be turned the wrong way so the SD card is reading protective.
Please turn the lever and try again.

The SD card might not be supported by the model: Your camera Memory card support is SD/MMC up to 2 Gigabyte and SDHC up to 8 Gigabyte

The SD card might not be faulty, try another card, since the camera could give you a message like the one you're experiencing.
Try with a different SD card that is supported by the camera.

Once you have set the settings to save onto the SD card directly you might like to transferre your existing pictures from the internal memory onto the SD card:
