Question about Pentax *ist DS Digital Camera
I have run into my first memory card problem with the *ist DS and am hoping someone can help me.
When use 2G SD card and there is less 1G left on the card(may be 900 mb). After that I cann't shoot any more. It just show "The image is not stored".
I am pretty sure that there are 1G(memory space) on this card. So anyone can tall me what go wrong.
Probably card problem. My ist ds2 works fine with a 2g card. Had to update to firmware version 1.02, in order to use sdhc cards with higher-than-2g capacity.

You need to upgrade the firmware on the camera. The latest versions will support cards bigger than 1GB; as delivered 1GB was the max.

Ok lets simplify the answers above, they are correct,
1. Check the formatting of the card, do a FAT32 format, not a simple format - full
2. Check the firmware of the camera and make sure it's up to date
3. If this doesn't work check the camera with a new card

If you have an adabtor to use the memory card directly on a computer you will be able to see if there are actualy files on it that are taking space. There is also the possiblity that there are some corrupt files, or there is an error in how the card's FAT is being reported.
A quick fix may be to tell the camera to re-format the card. This should clean it up.
If re-formating does not work, try another card in case the one you have is defective. If a new card does not fix the fault, then there may be a problem with how the uPC in the camera is working with the memory card. In this case the camera will have to go back to the manufacture's service rep to fix the problem.
