    also have samsung es30, try resetting your cam and see if it works. If not, format your memory card but be sure to transfer your files first. Hope it helps.

Digital camera full,dcf.so if you,ve taking alot of photos or videos included it might be full,you should transfer them to the computer via usb or your memory card,and see if that works.also make sure you put it in the correct way.and try not to leave it in very hot areas and away from damp or wet places,because that can corrupt the memory cards and cause it to read dcf error,also use energizer lithium batteries only,for the best performance ever.good luck hope i helped.

I am unable to take photo because of DCF full Erros come often ES30


This is what the manual says:
File names do not match the DCF standard.
Transfer the files on the memory card to your
computer, and then format the card. (p. 76)
Format in the camera, not in a cardslot of your computer.
Lots of errors, can be solved by removing and reinserting the battery(ies)

Thanks for using fixya!

The problem is from your SD card. First make sure you have copied all the pictures to your computer.

Then, FORMAT your SD card using your samsung camera. (Don't format it on your computer)

When I turn on my camera, in the middle of the screen in a black box it says " DCF full error" what does this mean and how do I get it to go away? I have tried resetting my camera and formatting...


Hello

Thank you for using FIXYA!!!

OK, firstly let me state what exactly the error message you are receiving concludes to:
"The "DCF full error" occurs when you use memory card in your camera which is formatted in another camera. The error is the result of improper formatting of the memory card which leads to incompatibility of the card with the Samsung camera."

Now, i the resolution for this specific problem is to format the memory card in the Samsung camera.

I know you stated that you have already formatted the card, but you did not state if you formatted the card in your camera, or on your computer.

Try the above solution and let me know if the problem still persists.

Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any further questions.

Kind regards

When l take my SD card, it still says " DCF Full Error"


Hello and Welcome

The DCF error message with your Samsung camera nearly always occurs when you're using a memory card that was formatted with a different camera, and the file format structure is not compatible with your Samsung camera. You will have to format the card with the Samsung camera.However, make sure you download any photos to your computer first

Anymore help, I am here to help
Best of Luck

DCF Full Error


DCF = Digital Camera Full

Usually, that just means you have taken a lot of pictures/videos and your memory card is full.
You should transfer them to a computer via USB or by taking the memory card out and putting it directly into a computer.
If you continue to have problems after emptying the memory card, you may have a faulty memory card.
If you suspect you have a faulty memory card, you might try a different one.
Always try to use a trusted memory card brand (I prefer Sandisk).

Good luck, I hope I was able to help
