Question about Nikon Coolpix 3200 Digital Camera

1 Answer

No images but no memory left

As of a few days ago, my camera had around 100 or 150 images (I forget) - about 600 K each. I uploaded them and deleted them from the camera. Today, I took 20 images (also around 600K each) and it ran out of memory. I uploaded them and deleted them from the camera. Now, it tells me there are no images on the card, but it is out of memory anyway. Can anyone help?? Please?? Thank you!

Re: no images but no memory left

Do you have a mac? when you delete anything off a flash disk from a mac, it puts them in a hidden folder (the mac recycle bin) either connect your camera to a mac and empty the pictures from the recycle bin or use the view option to view hidden files and folders. you should see everything there. if this camera has never been connected to a mac, i don't know. try formatting the card. there are many guides on the net, much better than i could type. let me know if it works! b.dale.flat "at" good luck!

It was deleted long time ago

If what you are trying to say is that you deleted your pictures from your camera's memory and you now wish to recover them, you are out of luck. Once you erase the memory, it is gone forever.

What does out of memory message mean on my nikon coolpix camera?

You have two questions here. Out of memory could mean that your memory card is full and you cannot take any additional pictures until you either replace the card with a new one, or delete or reformat the card you have in it. It could also mean that your card is "locked". Check for the little toggle switch on the side of the card to be sure it is in the "unlocked" position. Or it could mean that you do NOT have a memory card in the camera at all and you're using the very small internal memory your camera comes with (it usually will only hold about 4-5 images. If this is the case, put an external memory card in the camera.

The second part of the question deals with uploading to your computer. There are a whole host of reasons that can cause this. Here are a few.
1. Your software is configured incorrectly. It might be set for only a certain type of image (jpg, RAW, TIFF). It might be set to accept duplicate images and your images are already uploaded (somewhere on the machine).
2. It might be that your cord or connection is defective.
3. It might be that the computer is trying to find the external memory card and you don't have one.
4. You software might be looking for videos instead of images. Check your software configuration to be sure its set for image upload.
5. Be sure your battery is fresh. Some cameras will not upload with a weak battery.
6. The camera or software could be defective.

First of all, do not save any new file to camera's memory card.

Take out memory card, and connect it to computer using a card reader. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in Windows Explorer.
Download this photo recovery software
Install and open the photo recovery software, select the memory card, and click 'Start' button.

Olympus 790SW 7.1 MP reads full 1GB memory card is full after 2 pictures

Suggestion is to format the memory card and permanently delete all of the images from it. The card should then be able to be reused and you can start taking images again. To format the card go to Menu - setup and press ok - go to format and press ok - go to yes and press Ok. This will clear the card and you are back in business.

Communication error when uploading pictures on computer

I had the same problem. My problem was that there were more than 1,000 images stored on the memory card. Once I deleted some of the images from the camera memory card, I was able to download pictures again.

You need to format the simm memory card. Your camera can format the memory card. If you have the user manual it should tell you how to do this.
