The Polaroid PDC 700 digital camera accommodates an optional, Type 1 ATA compatible CompactFlash memory card up to 48MB. When an unformatted memory card is installed in the camera, it is automatically formatted when the camera is powered on. WARNING: Once you format the flash memory or format a memory card, all images are erased and cannot be retrieved - they are gone forever! Before you format (erase) the flash memory or format a memory card, transfer the images to your computer.

The camera beeps when we put the card in.

The images you take with your PDC 640 camera are stored on a removable 3.3V SSFDC or SmartMedia 2 MB memory card (also available in 4 MB and 8 MB). Note: You must insert the memory card before you can turn on the camera.

If camera beeps is enabled, the camera beeps if the card is not installed and displays the [ ] message on the Status panel.

To insert the memory card:
1. Make sure the lens cover is closed (the power is off).
2. Open the memory compartment on the side of the camera.
3. Insert the memory card into the slot (gold side of the card facing the front of the camera).
Make sure the card is pushed firmly into the slot. Note: The camera prompts you to format the memory card if it is not formatted. The camera displays the format menu on the LCD viewfinder. Press the button next to Format.
4. Close the memory compartment cover.

If you can, try using a different memory card. Else, your memory card contact terminals inside the camera may have become worn, causing the camera to not recognize the card once it is inserted.

Okay the card is not locked I'm adding a diagram anyway. The next thing is did your format the memory card in the camera in which it is to be used? If you have just installed a new memory card it needs to be formatted. Or have you downloaded pictures from the memory card to the computer? Did you format the memory card in the computer? Did you unplug the camera or card reader without doing a safe disconnect? These are all reasons why you need to format the memory card.

Diagram just cause I have it on speed dial

I have a PDC 3070 - how do I erase images from the memory card? I cannot see an erase button/function.

Is there a button with a garbage can icon? That's the delete button. Bring up a picture you want to delete and press that button...follow the on-screen instructions. If you want to erase the entire card, go into the menu and find "format" ...follow the on-screen instructions.

Camera say memory is full but wont let me format.

Sounds like the internal memory has failed.

I would check with Polaroid about repairing it. An alternative would be to try installing a memory card. If it works with a memory card, then the internal chip is definitely the problem.

See if a friend has a camera that uses a similar memory card and just borrow it for a few minutes to test.

Cannot erase memory card

Try another memory card and see if you still have the problem. In case it will solve your problem - the existing memory card is defective and should be replaced. Let us know with your results and we will do our best to support you. Good luck !!

Memory card?

The PDC 700 digital camera has 4 MB of internal flash memory on which to store images. An optional ATA-compatible Type 1 CompactFlash memory card gives your camera substantially more memory, allowing you to store more images or images of higher quality. images captured on the CompactFlash card can be downloaded using the same method as you use to download photos from the internal memory.

Can I use the PDC 700 with Windows Me?

The PDC 700 camera TWAIN driver is not 100% compatible with Windows Me because it does not support USB downloads. No new driver software is available from Polaroid -- however, a compatible TWAIN driver is available from a third-party source. The Pretec DC-800 is the functional equivalent of Polaroid's PDC 700. Pretec's DC-800 Setup Disk for Windows 95/98/ME/2000 is available for download at its online Driver Download Center. Testing done by Polaroid has shown that this driver works with the PDC 700 using the listed operating systems, including Windows Me. When accessing the camera with image editing software compatible with the computer's operating system, the camera driver appears as Digital Camera 1024X768 Driver.
