Hi
Try formatting the SD card before using it.Also,check the storage destination of the pictures,could be they're storing on your camera and not in the memory card.Make the SD card the default storage device.

Hope it helps.

SOURCE: SD Card Wont Work

From the NV3 Manual: (specifications)

External memory(Optional) : MMC/SD card (Up to 1GB Guaranteed)

So the camera may not support a 4GB card.

Try 1GB cards (or smaller).

you may have a bad memory card as well. I had to return one a few months ago it was doing a similar thing. Try formatting it first, you may save yourself a trip.

You need to eliminate the pics from the internal memory. With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Then, insert your card and do the "format" thing again for the card. Everything should be normal now.

SOURCE: sdhc card used in samsung nv3 it says memory full

I don't think that camera (the Samsung NV3) takes SDHC cards. The same is true of many (perhaps most) cameras that were released more than a year or two ago.

You need to use a regular SD card, which -- as you probably know -- isn't any bigger than 2G.

According to the specs for your camera, it can use an SD card up to 2GB but not an SDHC card.

My camera is saying memory full with a new sd card in. why?


The Samsung NV3 can only use standard SD memory cards up to 2GB. I'm guessing that your new card is a 4GB SDHC card, which the camera is not capable of recognizing. Fortunately, 2GB SD cards are relatively inexpensive these days, and are widely available on Amazon (see this link) if your local store no longer carries them.

New 4GB SDHC mamory card will not work in my Samsung NV3 camera - I get a memory full message. I have formatted the card and erased internal memory with the card out of the camera and still no joy - any...


Sorry, but your older camera can only use 2GB or less standard SD cards. Fortunately, these are relatively inexpensive these days, and may be found on Amazon, if your local store no longer carries them.

Nv3 it says memory full even if the sd card is empty. it wont take photos


try using the camera to reformat the SD card.
Or maybe if that camera has internal memory, it is set to use the internal memory. Go to the options and set the camera to use the SD card

Hi, I have a Samsung NV3 camera, I have installed a new 4 GB memory card but it is showing memory full. Is there and internal memory on the camera that is full that requires deleting? many thanks


I've tried to download a manual for this camera to give you the most accurate answer possible, however after a few minutes of frustration I'm going to answer this sort of "off the top of my head so to speak" My first impression is that the 4GB memory card my be beyond your cameras capabilities but first try this. Have you checked the memory card to make sure it's not locked I'll include a diagram check the small circle for the correct orientation the arrow shows the lock position.

Once you have made sure the card is unlocked install the memory card and then format the card. Formatting "programs and new card to work with the camera it has been installed into. Also Formatting should be done after each download of pictures to the computer hard drive. In this case formatting cleanse the old pictures off and programs the card once again to give optimum performance between the camera and memory card. If this still doesn't work then I suspect the 4GB card is to large for the camera "firmware and you will need to update your camera on the Samsung web site to a newer version of firmware. Sounds complicated but heck i did it so it's not all that technical. Also the memory card you are replacing may only need to be formatted to begin to work properly again (that's if you were having problems)

2 gb memory card displays "full" with only 8 pictures


Samsung only guarantees that a 1GB external memory card will work. If you look at the user manual on page 77. I just used a 1GB memory card instead and it worked fine.
I am not saying that no memory cards greater than 1GB will work, but if it doesn't work or stops working then it is because the software for the phone is not set up to handle it. I had the same issue and had to switch to a 1GB card.

SD cards


Do the 4GB Cards say SDHC on them? They should. SDHC is simply "Secure Digital High Capacity". They're high capacity SD cards that hold more than regular cards. In this case, 4GB. The problem with these is that they need to be supported by the device. I've never put an SDHC card into a device that doesn't support them, but it looks like that's what your situation is. The highest memory capacity a non-SDHC compliant device is capable of 2GB. I recommend that you return the 4GB cards and buy 2GB cards instead.

SD Card Wont Work


Check if the SD card is iserted properly into the camera, eventually pull it out and push it back inside the camera. Also remove camera batteries , repeat the operation, and put back batteries.
If the card still does not work test the card into a different device, it is not unfrequent that an SD card comes defective from factory. In this case take the card back to the retailer and a have it changed.
If the card works on a different device, then it may be that the NV3 does not support 4 GB , there is no mention about max SD format supported in camera specs, or in the manual. In this case I suggest testing a 1 or 2 Gb card at the shop, and then buying right one.
