The best way to erase all your pics at one time is to format the memory card. In fact, the memory card should be formatted each time you finish downloading the pics to your computer. Formatting not only erases the pics but also cleans up the directory structure and file information. FixYa is full of people asking how to retrieve pics from memory cards that haven't been formatted recently.
Look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.
The likely reason this keeps happening is that these cards weren't formatted in the camera when you first got them. However, don't do so just yet as formatting also erases the card. If you are using a memory card, take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. This is to reduce the chance of you overwriting some of your "lost" photos. There are many good freeware photo recovery software options that are available to help you recover your photos. This blog article reviews and outlines several of the better ones. Now AFTER you've recovered the photos, format the cards IN THE CAMERA USING THE CAMERAS FORMAT FEATURE. Look for it, it's located under the "tools" menu (look for the item stating the card's memory capacity). This should rejuvenate both cards, and prevent reoccurrence.
You need to get that one pic out of the internal memory. Here's how...remove your memory card. Go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Then, insert your memory card and do the "format" thing again to erase and initialize the card. Everything should work properly now.
This camera has been discontinued, and is no longer sold as new. There are still vendors that sell accessories for this camera including batteries and SD memory cards. A google search of "dimage g400 memory" reveals a number of retailers that sell SD cards of varying sizes up to 2 GB specifically for this camera.
Going beyond 2 GB however, will probably give mixed results, as most cards 4 GB (the next size up from 2 GB) are SDHC type cards. An SDHC card looks identical to the SD counterpart, but is manufactured to a different specification. The SDHC specification was developed after you camera was made, so use of cards bearing the SDHC mark is not supported.
The reason this occurred is that you likely never formatted the card. The card will work fine in the beginning but eventually will corrupt. AFTER you've recovered the photos, format the card in your camera to prevent this from happening again (dig out that instruction manual to figure out how). Keep in mind formatting will also totally erase your card, so again only do this after you've recovered the photos.
Hi, If you choose the format option in the camera's menu it will basically format your memory card or the internal memory if you don't have a card. Formatting will erase all your pictures, try not to choose this option until you have backed up all your pictures to a computer.

Put the card in your PC Card-reader for SD-cards (everybody has it nowadays - they're pretty cheap, get it if you ain't got it yet) and use any of the recovery programs available (lots of freeware on the web) for recovering your files.
