Ok, first you mak have a fake card. The capacity of the card is coded into the card and fake cards often lie about their capacity.

If you know the card is not fake, then reformatting the card should clear it. You can do this in the camera. (Check the manual for instructions.) Or if you have an SD card reader that plugs into the USB port of your PC, you can download a SD card formatter for free. (The official SD card standard site has these.)

Pentax Optio M30- How do I transfer pictures from the internal memory onto an SD card??


this model not support it, To do that, you need to connect to pc and transfer it. As long you inserted the SD card, IT will use memory from SD card and not display image, video from built in memory.
if you want to delete file in built in memory, you need to remove memory card.

Internal Memory on Camera wont allow format


You usually have to take out the SD card, close the door and then delete images in camera in the normal way (press delete button in play mode, when confirmation dialogue appears, press delete button again, select >delete all< and press OK). Most cameras default to the memory card when one is inserted, that's why you have to take it out to delete data from the internal memory.
Hope that helps

Aiptek IS-DV Memory Full message when memory card is empty


Exactly the same thing happend to me with my brand-new Aiptek. Turns out it was the no-name brand SD card that I got from China which destroyed it. Aiptek was kind enough to replace it for free since it was under warranty. Aiptek's caution: Stick to brands like SanDisk, Dane-Elec, Kingston, Transcend or PNY. Purchase from resellers like Target, Best Buy, Newegg.com or Amazon.com. Avoid MINI & MACRO style cards. NO Sandisk Ultra II or Extreme III, class 6. AVOID Hi-SPEED!

Memory Card Full


Hi, 1.make sure your memory card is not damaged and also formatted by camera ,this is because if card is damaged or not recognized the camera stores image in internal memory which may be full by this time. 2.backup all your data and delete all from internal memory also format the card and try using it. All the best my friend regards sreejith
