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.)

Memory card symbol has a small red bit on the screen and the camera wont take pictures


It is likely FULL. Try copying everything from the card to your computer. Verify the pictures are on your computer (so they you can delete them from the memory card) and then REFORMAT the memory card while in your camera. You do not want to delete them since it will wear out the memory card prematurely. Memory cards are pretty inexpensive. Buy a second, label them 1 & 2 and alternate. You'll always have plenty of room when a card fills up and you haven't copied them off yet.

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.

It depens what typ of memory do you use, Sd or MMC card. SD is the most common card and almost every multiple card reader can read it.
Check what type of memory card do you use in your camera and according to that by/borrow memory card reader.

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

All the best my friend regards sreejith
