I have followed the instructions inclufing the formatting of the internal memory and the removeable memory, however every time I remove the photos the camera starts over at IMAG0001. I have used the setting in Set-Up3 Reset Number to No. My version is 1.0011.0V. All other stuff works, but to me this extremely anoying.
Re: Cannot use the continious numbering of photos.
As annoying as that certainly is, the camera is actually functioning as designed. The reset number applies when there are still photos on the camera. If you have 10 pics on the camera, then activate the reset feature, then picture #11 will be called IMAG0001, even though it's the 11th picture being taken. With a clean slate and no pictures to start with, the camera only knows to start at 0001, simply by default. Hope this helps.

Go into the menu and find "copy" and copy the internal memory to a memory card. Then, with no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"....follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory.
I wish manufacturers would eliminate the internal memory....it causes nothing but problems for us. Try this...with no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Then, download any pics from your memory card using a separate card reader if necessary. Then, format the card in the camera. After this, your card should work.
It might be telling you the internal memory is full. With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions to format (erase) the internal memory. Then insert your card and see if things improve.
The internal memory is small. Your camera will continue to write to it until you erase the pics from it. Here's how...Remove the memory card. Download any pics you want to save from the internal memory. Go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Insert your card. It should work properly now. Promise yourself to never use the internal memory again.
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.
Wow! You have 400 pics on the internal memory. That must be some huge internal memory. Anyway, to delete them, remove the card from the camera...go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions.
"copy" is accessed from the playback menu. If that isn't available, decide if the pics stored in the internal memory are important. If not, format the camera with no memory card inserted to erase the internal memory. If you need those pics, then download them to your computer first...then format. Next, go into the menu and find "reset"..follow the on-screen instructions. Then, purchase an inexpensive card reader and download the pics from your memory card to your computer.(and promise yourself to use the card reader from now on...and remember that after downloading, use the "safely remove hardware" icon in the bottom right of your computer screen...don't just yank out the reader!). Finally, format the card in your camera and promise yourself never to use the internal memory again.
These instructions are from the Instruction Manual of the Coolpix S 210 and need to be carried out within the Set-Up Menu.
Refer Page 19:
Removing Memory Cards Before removing memory cards, turn the camera off and confirm that the power-on lamp is off. Open the battery-chamber/memory card slot cover and press the card in 1 to partially eject the card 2. The card can then be removed by hand. B Formatting Memory Cards If the message at right is displayed, the memory card must be formatted before use (A110). Note that formatting permanently deletes all pictures and other data on the memory card. Be sure to make copies of any pictures you wish to keep before formatting the memory card. Use the multi selector to choose Yes and press k. The confirmation dialog will be displayed. To start formatting, choose Format and press k. • Do not turn the camera off or open the battery-chamber/memory card slot cover until formatting is complete. • The first time you insert the memory cards used in other devices into the COOLPIX S210, be sure to format them using this camera (A110).
