The card may be locked, go into the settings of the camera and "format" the card, this should resolve your problem

Tip

Copy Pictures From INTERNAL MEMORY to Memory Card (solution for those who have...


Required:
Samsung D53 Camera
Memory Card (Clean with no pictures on it!)
Fresh batteries

Optional:
Computer
Memory card reader on your computer

Problem:
You have several (or more) photos that were taken with no memory card inserted into the camera, and they have been stored on the camera's internal memory. You have no USB cord to get the pictures off your camera.

Solution:
I don't know if this is in the manual (as this is a used camera I purchased with no manual or USB cord). In my frustration, I accidentally found out how to get my photos off the internal memory and onto my computer's hard drive.

Here are the steps I followed:

1. Ensure fresh batteries are inserted into your camera. You might lose data or get corrupted pictures if the camera dies while you're transferring pictures. Fresh batteries are important.

2. Insert memory card into the camera (where the batteries go) and close the lid.

3. Power camera on.

4. Press the Print/Review button (bottom button to the right of the LCD) once.

5. When you see the words "No Image!" appear, press the Menu/OK button.

6. A new menu will pop up, asking you COPY TO CARD -- use your buttons to highlight "Yes".

7. You will see your camera "Processing!" It will finish on its own, so do not interrupt the task.

(Optional)
8. Once it has finished "Processing!", remove memory card and insert into your computer's memory card reader to see and SAVE your pictures to your computer. Ensure all photos transferred properly before proceeding to Step 9.

9. With the memory card removed from the camera, power the camera back on and delete individual pictures, if you want to reserve internal memory for future emergency picture-taking situations (especially now that you know you can actually get the photos off of the camera's internal memory now!)

My camera has a new memory card in it, but my camera has pictures in it from my daug. taking pic. with it, but did not realize there was no memory card in it, now my camera only takes about 20 pic. and the...


You didn't tell me what camera make or model but as a rule you can not download pictures from the internal memory. What needs to be done is check make sure the memory card I'm going to assume is an SD card is in the unlock position. I'll give you a generic diagram so you can see what it is I'm talking about. Then the memory card needs to be formatted not delete, it needs to be formatted to the camera so the camera and the card can communicate between each other. Once that is down then you should be able to go into the set up menu and transfer the internal memory pictures to the memory card. Some cameras this has to be done one at a time others will have an "all" feature make sure your camera has sufficient battery because this could take a few minutes (2 or 3) depending on how large the internal memory is and how many pictures. If the process is interrupted because of battery failure then well, that's not good because you could loose all the pictures and the camera programing may become corrupt. Just make sure the batteries are full charge and you are good to go. Some cameras have an optional AC adapter to plug into wall power Okay back to the download once the pictures are on the memory card they can be downloaded to the computer in your usual manner. Okay once that is done reformat the memory card and you are good to go with a fresh memory card. The camera will automatically use the memory card when installed and formatted to the camera.

I have deleted all the pictures off of the memory card but still getting the message "out of memory". What do I need to do?


plug your camera into your computer like you were going to transfer pictures. After it runs through its normal process Quit that program.

Now go into my computer and find you "device" probably E: right click it on and you will be opening up the camera card. There are a few folders on this card. Find the one that is holding a lot of dates. delete all of the dates and or folders. (every session of downloading is held as a date on this card) It can fill up its memory quickly. Now your card is cleaned.

Camera says error formatting memory stick


Preformat : By Fix-shad0w

#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
Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
#3
Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
#4
In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
#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
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.

Make sure the camera is on and pc is selected on the camera screen when connected to the computer. You will need to have PC highlighted and select ok on the camera as this starts the camera and computer to communicate. Once communication established the LCD screen of the camera goes dark and the computer should generate a removable disk drive. This is normal processing. The camera screen should shut off as the computer is now taking over to transfer the data from the memory card to the computer.

When i try to ytyake a picture an error message appears memory card error


Is that exact what it says? I need more information. What kind of camera is it? I'll try to help with the little information I have:

I think your memory card is full and needs to be formatted. Select 'Menu' and look for the 'Format' option and select it. Before you select 'Yes' make sure you save any pictures that you might want to keep onto your computer. Because once the memory card is formatted you won't be able retrieve the pictures. It should ask you before formatting your memory card. While it's formatting make sure to keep the camera steady (if it's an older camera the slightest bump could disrupt the formatting process). This should take no more that a minute or two. When it's complete your memory card will be completely wiped clean. You'll now be able to take pictures. If the message appears again repeat the same process.

Note: When you 'Delete' a picture it doesn't completely leave your memory card. It will continue to take up space until you format your card.

I suggest formatting your memory card often (or you might miss out on a perfect photo opportunity and have to delete pictures you haven't put on your computer yet).

I hope this helped,

Owen

CAMERA PROBLEM


I have never heard of transfering like you want. Normally the internal memory wouldn't have room enough to hold those from the card, I think you will have to transfer to a computer, or go to one of the many photo processers and have them download all your pictures to cd or what ever. Once on a cd on in the computer, you can then delete pictures from internal memory and card and start all over again.
