I have a Fuji FinePix A 205 camera and replaced the 16mb card that came with the camera with a 256mb card. I can take lots more photos and SHOULD be able to record a longer movie but can unfortunately only...

I don't know what manual you're reading but the camera will only record 80 seconds at the lowest resolution. This is a very old camera that still uses the now extinct XD card. If movies really interest you, consider getting a new camera. The new models have literally hundreds of new features that I'm sure you will really like.

My canera is saying insert the memory stick

Do you have a memory stick storage device? These cameras have a small internal memory built in. But to take more photos once its full this memory storage device is needed. There a several models with different sizes. Also, look into the owners manual and learn how to adjust the size of the photo. The larger the size, or input, the less total number of photos you can store. Large size photos are intended to print at a higher quality or larger size which you many not need. Search the Internet for Sony Memory Sticks or go to a local photo store (call first and ask if they carry Sony products). Good luck.

Photo storage?

It depends on the picture resolution and the size of the memory card.
Normal JPEG 2048 x 1472 : 11.0 - With 16MB built-in memory , Fine JPEG 2496 x 2016 : 19.0 - With 16MB built-in memory , Normal JPEG 2048 x 1376 : 19.0 - With 16MB built-in memory , Fine JPEG 2496 x 2016 : 9.0 - With 16MB built-in memory , Normal JPEG 2048 x 1472 : 9.0 - With 16MB built-in memory , Normal JPEG 2048 x 1376 : 35.0 - With 16MB built-in memory , Fine JPEG 1024 x 736 , Fine JPEG 1024 x 736

The capacity of various memory cards will be similar to the above ratios.

I hope this helps.

Only lets me take 26 photos with a 16mb memory stick

the 16 mb card is pretty small -you can buy a 250 mb card which may fix your problem. Also, some digital camera have a built in memory which permits you to take pictures with no memory stick in the camera, but these are always small capaciity. Maybe you need to switch from internal memory to memory stick in your camera settings.

Deleted photo recovery from cameras internal memory


Please try this, turn on your camera, insert a blank memory stick, slide the side switch down to the lowest point, should say “No file in this folder” click on menu, click on Setup, use the arrows and go to Memory Stick, choose “Copy” choose “Album” the “OK” this will copy all you pictures from the Album in your camera to your memory stick.

Hope this helps

From memory to stick

The only way I know how to to do this is to remove the memory stick and download the photos to your computer. Then replace the memory stick and move the photos from your computer to the memory stick.

Can't take photo's

There should be 2 settings, 1 for internal memory, 1 for external (card) memory. Internal memory is always low, especially if camera is set to high quality photos so only a few can be taken. check your settings on picture quality.

Memory cards

You may be able to store up to 110 images if you use the camera in its lowest resolution mode. In high resolution, you may get only 24 shots. We wish we could tell you precisely, but it depends on the exact size of the file created by a given camera, as well as the resolution that you select. Keep in mind that Secure Digital, CompactFlash, and SmartMedia memory cards are competing products and are not interchangeable. You'll find a few cameras that are compatible with more than one brand, but generally when you buy a digital camera today, you'll be making a commitment to work with one type of memory card. Use the attached chart to determine the average number of photos that Secure Digital memory cards can store (compatible with most HP digital cameras)
