Is their still a DCIM folder? If there is then the photos are in the ###_pana folder inside the DCIM folder. If there's nothing then try opening the card then click "folder options" in the "Tools" menu, navigate to the tools tab at the top, then click the "check now" button, finally select both check boxes and click start. When it's finished, Format the card using windows and then again in the playback menu on the camera once it's disconnected. If all of this doesn't help it then the card is toast. Flash memory, unfortunately, can only withstand so many read and writes before it kicks the bucket. they've gotten better but the Panasonic memory card is a cheapy. Best bet with anything is to backup your photos and backup often.

You might be looking in a different (empty) folder on your memory card. Put the card into your computer media reader and see what's on it. Otherwise just format the card from your camera and that will erase the entire card no matter what's on it.

Hi Danielle,

You should copy ALL pictures from your memory card to your computer and then format the memory card USING YOUR CAMERA (don't format it using your computer) That should empty your memory card and can be used again as if it is new.

If you are still experiencing the problem/issue reply here and and give some more informations regarding your problem (such as the capacity of your memory card and the settings of your digital camera)

You can rate my answer if you appreciate it.
Thanks!

You need to format the card in your camera using the camera's format feature (look for it in the menus). Note that this will also erase the card, so only do such after saving any pictures that you wish to keep onto your computer's hard drive.

It says that my "Memory Card is full" even though


1. Make sure you are saving all your images to what is called the "external" memory, not the tiny internal memory.
2. Format your memory card using the format feature on your camera.

What does "Memory Full" mean? The card was empty when inserted and only 1 picture taken.


Memory full means the internal memory is full and the camera won't let you use your memory card until you format the internal memory with no card in the camera.

Cannot download all of pictures onto pc.


First of all, you should forget about using the internal memory...it just causes problems (as you can readily see). Always use a memory card. If any of the pics on your camera are important, you should download them to your computer before continuing. Then, go into the menu and find "reset"...follow the on-screen instructions. Then, with the card out of the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions. Then insert a blank memory card and go into the menu and find "format" again...follow the on-screen instructions. From this point on, your life will be wonderful.

How do I switch between internal memory and memory card?


When you remove the card, can you review the pictures that are on the internal memory? If you can and you want to save them, download them to your computer. Then, with the memory card still out of the camera, format the internal memory.
