Press "Menu" Press button to the right (towards a little flower on my camera) which takes you to the "setting" menu. scroll down to "format" right click again and it reads "All data deleted" and then gives you the option to "Format" or "Cancel". Select "Format" and then "ok" and pronto....your memory card is ready to go.

After trying to format the SD card as advised above and talking to customer service but not fixing the same problem on a Vivitar X029, my husband worked with the camera for a few minutes and here is how he fixed it. He removed the battery, this gave him more finger space to push the memory card into a deeper position until it clicked. (Maybe using a popsicle stick to push the card down further would allow you to do this without taking out the battery???)Then he reinstalled the battery and he moved the lever over the battery. Originally, the SD card was "floating" (battery door pushed the SD card down further when I closed the door) in the slot but he got the SD card to "seat" properly. We could take pictures after that with no problem and no annoying "memory card full" message with a brand new camera and SD card. Hope it works for you.

Memory cards can have many folders. Camera can only look inside one folder. Format your memory card.

SOURCE: Memory card flashes full when it's not

There should be a "format card" option in the camera's system menu. do this and it may help the unfortunate equipment realize the situation:) (be sure there are no pics you want to keep as they will be permenantly removed)

SOURCE: Camera says Memory CARD FULL--but it's empty

Olympus cameras are a bit picky! If you have not already tried then format the card on the camera. This is more reliable than formatting the card on a PC.

Downloading the pictures from your camera does not erase them from the card. It only copies them to your PC

Hope this helps

SOURCE: say's the memory card is full. It is a new empty (kodak cw330)

You may need to go into the Menu Selection of the camera & locate the "Format" option. Choose Format & see if it will then read the card.

SOURCE: I HAVE A MEMORY CARD IN CAMERA AND ITS EMPTY BUT

Same problem with a VIvitar X029. Try taking out the battery, then "seating" the memory card further into its slot. Replace the battery and close the door. The card should not be able to move when closing the door. If it does, it is not puhed in far enough.

Says memory full put a new sd card in says thats full too cant move anything to sd card


If you look carefully, what usually occurs is that it is the internal memory that is getting full. It is very hard to fill an SD card unless you have a LOT of pictures and videos saved. Some apps are written to allow them to be moved to and run from the SD card, others allow their data to be stored there, but unfortunately, most still seem to insist that they run exclusively on internal memory. This prohibits the ability to free up internal memory and eventually results in your having to decide which apps are more important than others. Cleaning up the memory by deleting data caches helps, but until the phone manufacturers either increase internal memory or insist that apps writers take advantage of SD cards when available, this problem will continue to haunt us all.

"memory full" but SD cards are empty


Not sure if it will be this, but has the SD card got locked by accident? There is a little sliding button on the side of the card, which can be locked to protect the content. My camera shows the card as full if I accidentally lock the card. You can just slide it back again to unlock it. I never noticed the button was there until I accidentally knocked it while loading the card in and out of my PC to transfer the photos.

CAMERA SAYS INTERNAL MEMORY FULL. I PUT NEW CARD IN. STILL SAYS INTERNAL MEMORY FULL


The internal memory is the memory built into the camera, not the memory you put in with a memory card. This internal memory is rather small. If it is completely full, it will stop your camera working even with an empty memory card.

Take the card out of the camera, and delete some of the photos on the internal memory before you put it back in.

What does "Memory Full" mean? The card was empty when inserted and only 1 picture taken.


Memory full means the internal memory is full and the camera won't let you use your memory card until you format the internal memory with no card in the camera.

Empty memory claims to be filled


I wish camera makers would stop including internal memory on their cameras. It causes nothing but headaches. Go into your menu and find "format" and follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Then, go into the menu and find "reset'...follow the on-screen instructions. Then, insert the card and do the format thing again to erase the card and optimize it. You should be ok now.
