Question about Canon Cameras

When I insert a memory card, all of a sudden I get "999" as the number of pictures available in stead of the accurate number. I have a G& and have never had problems before.

Frame no. full

In the English Manual on page 150 it says Frame no. full:
The frame number has reached 999-9999. Remedy:
1 insert a formatted Memory Card into the camera. 2 Set RENEW as the FRAME NO. setting in the (SET) SET-UP menu (> p.117).
3 Start taking pictures (The frame number starts from "100-0001").

4 Set CONTINUOUS as the FRAME NO. setting in the (SET) SET-UP menu. Good luck

Nikon D90 and memory card counter

There doesn't seem to be a problem. The 3.7k means 3700, the k meaning thousand. If you were to take about 2700 pictures, you'll then see 999, then 998, and so on.

The remaining picture counter stays at 999

The maximum number of remaining shots that the display can show is 999.
If the memory card has space for more than 999 pictures, the number will stay at 999 till less than 999 remain and it will start counting down from there.

Chip says full after few pics

The chip may not be inserted correctly. You can tell by seeing or not seeing SD symbol in the view screen. Try removing the SD card. Go through the memory and see if the pictures were saved to the camera or to the card. If the pictures were saved to the camera, turn off the camera and re-insert the card. See if the cards responds by showing more pictures available for taking and move the pictures to the card. If the pictures were saved to the card, then the card may need to replaced.

Count down on memory card

The K100D's lcd read-out is limited to displaying 999 as its maximum. This means that the card is capable of storing 999+ pictures. Once it gets to a point that the card can only store 999 pictures or less, then it will begin to count down.
Hope this helps!

Reset Folder No.

Finally, I have contacted the Panasonic Repair Centre. The answer is the only way to reset the folder no is to bring it back to the repair centre and have it rested there. Moreover, say there is a file 1000001 in the memory card now. After you use the "No. Reset" function and if you do not format the memory card (in other words, the 1000001 file is still in the card), the new file no will become 1010001 when you take a new picture with this memory card. Therefore, I will format the memory card before I use the "No. Reset" fuction in order to make the new picture started from 1000001.

Internal memory or to the optional xD-Picture Card?

The internal memory and xD-Picture Card cannot be used at the same time. When the card is inserted the internal memory is disabled. When you want to use the internal memory you must remove the xD-Picture card. The LCD display indicates the images are being saved to the internal memory by displaying [IN] in the lower right corner of the screen. When using the xD-Picture Card the LCD will display [xD] in the lower right corner. These indicators are displayed just above the number of available frames.
