I continue to get a message saying the internal memory is full. I have a memory card in the camera. Do I have the mode or something set wrong. It will not add pictures to memeory card.

First, format the internal memory with your memory card out of the camera. Then, go into the setup menu and scroll to "reset" and follow the on-screen instructions. Put your memory card back in the camera. It should work after that.

My digital camara will not save pictures. Messages appear.

If you are using SD memory card, it can be locked. Take out your memory card, on the left side there's a switch. Turn switch up and try again. Hope this will work.

Memeory card error

many users have the same doubt. as per canons manual:
if any error is displayed when using your memory card do a low level formating of memory card.
but what to do for pictures in it? get a memory card reader from market. its very cheap. its also advisable to use memory card reader to transfer your photos rather than using direct connectiin to computer. bcz any lekage current from computer may damage the camera in some way.
after doing a low level formating then transfer photos inside memory card from system, put it in ur camera, then enjoy.
hope you are clear with your problem. please give a feedback.
