    Yes! But, I still had to go and reread the manual to find out what buttons did what. Simplier
    instructions would be nice.

    I have an Olympus Camedia Digital Camera # 860L, and after reading and rereading the manual I can't
    remove the pictures already on the card. How do I erase the previous pictures from the card so I can
    take more pictures.

Says FuLL won't take pictures


FULL indicates that your SD card is full and either must be cleared by formatting the card which will rase all the pictures or the pictures need to be downloaded to your computer and then erased from the card. You can also install a new card if you want to continue shooting and still save the pictures on the full card.

MY CAMERA IS A Z650 KODAK EASYSHARE, MY DAUGHTER LOST MY OLD MEMORY CARD SO I WENT OUT AND BOUGHT A NEW MEMORY CARD BUT MY CAMERA SAYS IT NEEDS FORMATTING AND IT WONT LET ME ALSO IT SAYS INTERNAL MEMORY IS...


Just as I suggested. The Z650 works with SD cards, not SDHC cards. Most likely your old card was 2GB or smaller and your new card is 4GB or larger. Try using a 2GB SD card.
You can clear internal memory by deleting the pictures it contains. Download them to your computer first if you want to preserve them. You can get rid of all of them in one shot by using the "Format" command in the Setup menu.

Memory card filled and I took more pictures. Seemed to put those on the internal memory. What happened too or how can I recover the memory card pictures?


Probably one of two solutions.
First, the memory card should have all the pictures intact. If you are using the camera to review, you may need to just keep going back until the memory card photos show.
Another possibility is that the internal memory supersedes viewing the card memories. You may have to run a USB cable to your computer, download the internal memory photos, and then you can possibly see (on the camera) the memory card photos. It might be a good idea to download those photos to your computer too, if the computer has a memory card slot. Otherwise you will have to go through them and download via the USB again. Once you know the photos are saved, you can either change cards with a new one , or clear the old card and start again.
Good Luck

Why does my fujifilm finepix z2 say card error. it was perfect half an hour ago.


All memory cards need to be formatted before use to provide optimum performance. Formatting provides the camera a clean medium to put the picture files on. After each download the memory card should be re-formatted to clear the old pictures off and provide space for the new pictures

When I acquire pictures from SD card, it acquires


You shouldn't be leaving the old pictures on the card. That's a guaranteed way to get into trouble. After downloading your pictures, format the card in the camera.

If you want to transfer just the new pictures, you'll have to select those pictures for transfer. Since you declined to specify what software you're using, I can't tell you precisely how to do that.

New 2 GB Memory cards say cards full when installed


The SD card may have to be reformated. You should do this in the camera you want to use the SD card with. Do not format the card with your computer.

In you manual or on the menu of your camera there is a "Format" procedure. follow that and your camera will work again (REMEMBER) if you have images on the SD card down load them before you format the card.

Once you down load the images from your camera you should reformat the card to clear it in order to shoot more images.

Memory card


If the card has not been formatted to remove data, it may have info that is not compatible between your old and new cameras.

If you have a USB card reader, place the card in it and re-format it.

If that doesn't work, then the card may be faulty.
