Says memory card error and internal memory full. sometimes will recognize sd card but when picture is taken it either freezes camera or says no image/sound


It sounds like the camera is set to always save to the internal memory. With the SD card in place, adjust the settings to save to the SD card. (Sorry, I don't know the exact menu paths for your camera).
(If you have also copied your pictures off your camera, you can erase the internal memory and use that to take more pictures - however it will fill up again).

Make sure the camara uses the card instead of internal memory
it might be that its saveing the images into the cameras internal memory witch is probably just about 3-4 shots.

Memory card is full and when I plug in the USB cord and turn on the camera I get a message that my device is not connected or is busy, or that it contains no pictures!!


Causes of memory card corruption
  • Turning off a camera before an image is completely written to the memory card.
  • Removing the memory card from a camera while an image is being written to the card.
  • Removing the card from a memory card reader while files are still being transferred to a computer.
  • Batteries conking out as files are being transfered directly from the camera to a computer. Note: always make sure you have fully charged batteries before transferring images.
  • Removing the card from a card reader while folders and files from the card are open on a computer.
  • Opening, deleting, renaming or moving files on the card while its contents are open on a computer.
  • Using a memory card which has not been formatted in the camera. Use the delete/erase function when needed, however a card should be regularly formatted.
  • Formatting a card in a computer instead of the camera.
  • Inserting a second memory card into a card reader before closing and removing the first when viewing images on the card from a computer.
  • Taking photos when camera batteries are nearly empty.
  • Taking photos too rapidly so the camera can not complete writing one image before starting the next.
  • Continually shooting and deleting, shooting and deleting images when the card is full.
  • Letting a memory card get too full before downloading the images to a computer or storage device. Cards that are too full may overwrite the card headers.
  • Using a memory card from one camera in a different camera without formatting it in the new camera first.

I have a SanDisk 1.0 GB memory card in the camera, which has been working just fine. I just deleted all the photos off of it, and the camera indicates "No Image", BUT when I try to take pictures it says...


Try formatting (not erasing) the card in your camera to rejuvenate it. Press "menu" button, then select the tools menu. Then scroll down to the selection stating your card's capacity and select it. Select "Low Level" format if offered. This will also totally erase your card, so do this after saving any important images to your computer.

Internal memory full - how do I find it? Ann


If you do not have a memory card inserted, the camera defaults to the internal memory, both in shooting and playback modes. You can transfer from internal to a card using the "copy" function from the playback menu. The internal memory can be erased from the playback menu using the format function in the "setup" menu. Don't erase (format) until you are sure the images are stored safely elsewhere.

Not sure what it means w/the memory card is full. What shoild I do to use camera now?


Hey mrstena,
What this message means if the memory card you are using has no more space on it to record new images to it. To fix this you need to upload the images on the memory card to a computer either using a USB cord that connects the camera to the computer, or getting a card reader that supports your type of memory card and connect the memory card directly to the computer with the card reader. After you have uploaded your images you should format the memory card in the camera, which will erase all the images on the memory card and you should then be able to take more images. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

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 !!

Bug in the Optio S40?


Somewhere I read to be careful using cardreaders, using your memory card in different camera's and managing your card via the computer. Appearantly all of these can corrupt your card. The advice is to hook your camera directly up to your computer to transfer images and perhaps it is wise to erase images through the camera's menu instead of via the transfer program of the computer. Try formatting the card using the camera's menu and see if the problem persists.
