Question about SanDisk Memory Media

1 Answer

1Gb SD Card

Hi, I've downsized a bunch of photos totaling about 423 Mb to put on my card, and the card will only load between 16-27 Mb before it says that it's full. The dialog box shows that there is over 900Mb empty space. I've tried this with two different cards with the same result. Both cards work fine in my camera, so it must be something I'm doing wrong, but I haven't a clue what it may be. I'm running OS X 10.4.10 on a Intel iMac Help! Thanks, Greg

Re: 1Gb SD Card

You have a hidden trash file on the card, emptying the system trash with the card mounted will also empty the hidden trash file on the card. To prevent this kind of issue and issues of your hidden system files showing up in windows, you can use a clean eject tool such as FinderCleaner to clean off all the hidden system files before ejecting the card, this is not strictly necessary and nor does it cause any harm it just prevents issues associated with these files.

I have 4gb micro sd card whin i format it show me 3.69 gb

1 GB = 1024 MB (mega bytes)
1 MB =1024 KB (kilobytes)
1 KB = 1024 bytes
1 GB = 1024*1024*1024 bytes
1 GB = 1073741824 bytes

But manufacturers count 1GB as 1000000000 bytes, so it's normal that a sd card which advertise being 4GB is in reality 3.7GB (4000000000 / 1024 / 1024 / 1024 = 3.72 GB).

My memory stick of 1gb has full memory filled and now i m unable to see the photos loaded in it through the camera or the card reader

That means the memory card was corrupted. You need a memory card recovery to recover photos before seeing it. I recommend you use Card Data Recovery, i can recover data from corrupted or damaged memory card.
