  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 memory full error comes not because of memory card. It comes because the internal memory is full. There was no need to format memory card. you have to format the internal memory.
Here is the procedure: 1. Take backup of your contacts and messages because they will be DELETED after formatting 2. Dial *#7370# from your phone. It will ask to format. Press yes 3. It will also ask the pin or password. The default password is 12345. The phone will restart and the memory full message will disappear.

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

This error message means that the card is corrupted or formatted for another digital camera. Turn off the camera. Insert a new card or format the card.

I have Nokia N-72 cell phone. Now i m facing problem of memory full while i m trying to open any message. also i cant see any missed call, received calls and dialed call also. i have deleted some data...


Hi,
There are several reasons related to this problem, like virus, message memory storage, phone memory full, etc..
First remove your memory card and check whether the error is still there or not. If so, try to delete files from your phone memory, like sms, songs, bluetooth received files, photos etc..
If there's not error, after the memory card is removed, then check your memory card, if possible scan it and try again. I would suggest you to format it after backing up the files, contacts, etc...
Set the message storage to your memory card directory not your phone memory. If you have problem doing this, please let me know so that I can assist you.
Good luck..
Thanks for using FixYa.

My nokia 6233 phone memory was lost.it have no files but showing full.plzzz help me


This problem is mostly caused by memory corruption or insufficient memory. Check your call logs, sms, bluetooth receive sms or files, outbox, sent items, received files and delete or move if there are some which you suspect the cause of the occupied memory. Reset you phone to full factory (Reset Factory). Then restart and see the problem whether it is gone or not. If not Try backing up your files (contacts, messages) using PC suite to your PC. Remove your memory card, scan the memory card with updated antivirus, or format if necessary. Still you are getting the same error message? Remove your sim card, memory card and reset you phone using the code*#7370#. Sometimes, even updating firmware is effective. To do this, you need to go to the repairing shop. Good luck..
