  1. 1 Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from Amazon.com or Buy.com
  2. 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
  3. 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  4. 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  5. 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
  6. 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

The manual says: the files names does not match the DCF format. Transfer the files on the card to your computer and format the card.
You tried to format and it did not work. Sure the card is not locked? The lock switch should be up, so the card is unlocked an you must be able to format te card and you should be able to write files to the memory card.
Although the camera is compatible with SCHC I wonder if you did not put in a very big card. Perhaps your camera cant work with 8 or 16 GB. Is surely can't work with SDXC cards.
Did you try a normal SD card, and could you format that one?

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

I just bought a new memory card but I keep getting "Internal Memory Full" message. How can I fix this problem.


Your camera is supported by: Memory card support : SD/MMC up to 2 Gigabyte. If you are using any other card your camera might give you an error message such as this one.

Try to format the memory card in my camera? NOTE this will delete all existing data on your card.
Do the following:
  1. Insert the memory card into the camera. Make sure the card is firmly seated (push in the card until it clicks into place).
  2. Turn on the camera.
  3. Press the Menu button, then go to the Setup Menu.
  4. Scroll up or down to the Format option, then press the OK button
