If you have the samples in .WAV then you will have to IMPORT them, because SPD-S can only play .SPD files (import will convert from WAV to SPD).If you have produced your samples with your SPD-S (via mic or line-in or PhraseMaker) then they are already in .SPD-format and can be assigned without importing.
In this case you just have to assign a sample to a pad, by pressing CARD ("card"=lit) you can assign samples from your CF-card to a pad.

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.

Retrieval of pictures taken without a memory card

When you take pictures on anyy digital camera, the picture is stored onto the memory card. In your case, since the memory card was full, the picture was deleted the second you stopped looking at it. (from when you took it) I would try uplinking the camera to a computer to see it the pictures somehow made it to the camera, but other than that im sorry.

How to save a picture to a memory stick,,


Even if the Memory Stick Duo is inserted in the Camera, the images will not be saved in the Memory Stick Duo until the capacity of the Internal Memory is full. To save the images in the Internal Memory to the Memory Stick Duo, select the EXPORT option from the Viewing Menu of the Camera. Touch the MENU icon when viewing images to select the IMPORT option.
There are two option in the Viewing Menu of the Camera (Export and Import). Export option is to save from Internal Memory to Memory Stick and Import is for saving from Memory Stick to the Internal Memory.
This Camera is having 4GB of Internal Memory, hence the images captured will get saved in the Internal Memory first and then to Memory Stick once the Internal Memory is full.

My camera is reading memory full. I took my card and got pictures that show on my memory card i bougth but can't take any more picyure because it is saying memory full and showing the pictures I thought...

Your camera is referring to its internal memory. It is very small and fills up can also prevent the camera from writing to the memory card. If these pics are important to you, go into the menu of the camera and find an entry for "copy" which will give you the option to copy the internal memory to a memory card. Once this is accomplished, remove the card and go back into the camera menu and find "format"....follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Then, promise yourself you will never use it again! Now, your memory card should work properly in your camera.

Built -in memory full

First, determine if any of the pics on the internal memory are important...if so, download them first. Then, with no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" and follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Then, if the memory card contains any important pics, download them using a card reader if necessary. Then, insert the card into the camera and do the "format" thing again. Now, you should be ok.

Internal Memory is full

Your camera should automatically recognise when a memory card is inserted and store pictures on to that rather than use the internal memory. The internal memory is only used when no card is inserted so possibly there is a fault with the card connections if it does not recognise when it is inserted.
To clear the internal memory have a look at my post on my tips page on my profile dealing with this.

The Internal memory and SD card are different beasts. There is a certain value that alows pics to be taken without a memory card in situe. It is this part that is saying the memory is full Use settings to clear internal meory of photos or files being held. If this oersists even after yoiu have emptied the memory you will need to take it to a Kodak outlet

Internal memory to memory card

Generally, it's not possible to move images from internal memory to a memory card, which poses a problem because you can't connect that camera to your computer.

Most digital cameras keep the internal memory separate from the memory card. Not sure why, but they do.

It's unlikely that you'll be able to get those photos off, if the camera isn't recognized by the computer.

Compact Flash adapters


try the following program:

gogle for: GParted Live Disk

With this tool, you should be able to make TWO PARTITIONS on your 1GB CF-card (cheaper then 512MB) and create a partition with 510Mb (caution! NOT 512Mb!!).

Now you should be able to use the CF-card in your SPD-S.

Further advantage, you can store backups on the second partition, by copying them (on your PC) to the second partition.
