No, the A420 does not have internal memory. The card that came with the camera is only intended to allow you to try the camera to make sure it works. You should really purchase a new SD card. New ones these days are literally capable of holding hundreds if not thousands of pictures, and cost less than $7. Here's an example:

How to insert memory card in sanyo lcd digital camera vpc x350


The camera, being almost 15 years old, only can hold Smart media memory cards. They are large but very thin.
Your camera should be opened on the bottom and the card slot is like 1 by 40 mm.
I hope I manage to post some pics from the cam and from a memory card.
I only can show a picture from a service manual, so don't do anything with the screws. It only shows where the memory card slit sits. It is the long black line. Should be like 40 mm wide.

Select "Backup" from the Setup menu to copy pictures from the internal memory to a memory card. Then you can transfer them from the memory card to your computer as usual.

My camera and memory card aren't holding very many pics


need more info but usually ir means the memory is full . or the memory card is corrupt. i suggest saving all the pics to your computer then try reformatting the memory card. you can usually do this from the camera itself. you will have to go thru the cameras menu and pick delete all pics and format card.
also check what pixel setting you are using. the higer the pixel setting the lass pics the memory will hold.
however lowering the pixel rating also reduce the quality of the pictures. hope this helps .

My son got a vivitar 8025 and it wont take pictures it keeps telling us the card is protected. What does this mean and how do we fix it?


did you put an sd memory card into it? this camera will not take pics without an sd memory card (it did not come with any memory to hold pics on the camera itself). the memory card needs to be inserted into the slot right next to the battery:)

I have a coolpix s230, using the memory card to hold pics


Try another memory card, memory card can go bad. If this does not solve the problem your camera has a fault in the SD memory card or the memory card board.

Camera says no memory after taking only 4 pics.


Camera has built-in memory but its small in capacity. Buy new memory card and install it in camera slot and memory card will hold more picture data. Regarding pictures quantity, it depends what size of memory card like...1GB, 2GB etc. greater size, more storage.
