Re: Memory Card Full
1.make sure your memory card is not damaged and also formatted by camera ,this is because if card is damaged or not recognized the camera stores image in internal memory which may be full by this time.
2.backup all your data and delete all from internal memory also format the card and try using it.
All the best my friend

You can copy pictures from the internal memory to the memory card by using the Copy command in the Playback menu. Press the MENU button in playback mode. Use cursor-up/down to select "Copy image/sound" and press cursor-right. Select the camera-icon-right-arrow-"SD" and press the OK button.
Full details are in the "Copying Files" section of the manual (page 105 in my copy). If you need a manual, you can download one from the manufacturer's web site at http://www.pentaximaging.com/files/manual/OptioS40%20Web.pdf
Certainly. If you're sure you've copied all the pictures you want to your computer, simply format the card to wipe it clean. Rotate the mode dial to the screwdriver-and-wrench position and turn the camera on. Use cursor-down to select "Format" and press the OK button. The instructions are in the "Formatting an SD Memory Card or Internal Memory" section of the manual (page 22 in my copy).
Memory cards should be formatted each time you finish transferring your pictures to your computer. FixYa is full of people asking how to retrieve pictures from cards that haven't been formatted regularly.
You usually have to take out the SD card, close the door and then delete images in camera in the normal way (press delete button in play mode, when confirmation dialogue appears, press delete button again, select >delete all< and press OK). Most cameras default to the memory card when one is inserted, that's why you have to take it out to delete data from the internal memory. Hope that helps
Hi,The solution is to format the memory card or initialize the memory card.Note formatting the memory card will delete all the pictures or data stored.
Formatting memory card 1. Press the MENU button in any mode. 2. Move the 5-way scroll button to the right and press the confirm button to enter the SETUP menu. 3. Move the 5-way scroll button down and enter the FORMAT menu. Press the confirm button and the "Format?" dialog box appears. Select "Yes" to start formatting. Select "No" to cancel.
Connect your camera to a computer and offload all the pictures. Then, format the camera's internal memory. If you have a memory card, it's best to use that and only use the internal memory when the card fills up.
Ok, first you mak have a fake card. The capacity of the card is coded into the card and fake cards often lie about their capacity.
If you know the card is not fake, then reformatting the card should clear it. You can do this in the camera. (Check the manual for instructions.) Or if you have an SD card reader that plugs into the USB port of your PC, you can download a SD card formatter for free. (The official SD card standard site has these.)
