Samsung PL211 digital camera - memory card needs reformatting

Camera was working fine but now says memory card needs formatting, cannot find any instructions on how to do this via camera straight through laptop and as is a microcard and my adapter has gone missing, cannot take it out of camera to do it. Samsungs own support is useless. Do you know if it possible to do it via camera to laptop please?

SOURCE: Samsung S630 Digital Camera, Card Error and Format Error

you have several options:

1. see in the specification details of your camera what memory card is compatible for camera. for S630 it is SDHC/MMC/SD card (Up to 4GB Guaranteed). see if you're using memory card within this capacity and type. If you're using a different memory card type and capacity, try to use memorycard that is compatible with your camera.

2. try to use memory card to other devcie like cameras, cellphones and other devices and if it still has error problem, your card may be the one defective. use other cards.

3. try to take pictures without using memory card. use only the internal memory of camera. if camera still display this error meassage, camera needs service.

hope these options solve one of your problems. c",)

SOURCE: I bought a 4GB Memory Card for my Samsung Digimax

Your problem is that your camera only takes standard SD cards up to a maximum of 2GB. The card you have bought is likely to be a 4GB SDHC model. SDHC is a later development of SD; SDHC compliant devices can still use older SD cards, but SD-only devices cannot use SDHC. This is a hardware limitation so there is no way at all to use an SDHC card in your camera.

Note that if your 4GB card is definitely an SD and not an SDHC then it's still incompatible with your camera: very few standard SD devices were ever made with the firmware and hardware to handle the different memory addressing architecture used by the larger capacity card. Some cameras did have firmware updates to allow the larger SD card to be used, but yours is not one of them.

Your only fix is to sell your card (or keep it for another device) and to buy a regular SD card no larger than 2GB maximum capacity.

I trust that my reply has answered your question fully, please take a moment to rate my answer.

Need to download driver for my samsung Pl211 camera


You don't need a driver.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

I've had the Samsung L200 with the same Panasonic 1GB memory card for the last 3 years and it's been great, but all of a sudden today it started saying 'memory full' after only taking a few...


The camera is telling you that the internal memory is full. To get your card to work, you must clear it. With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" and follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Then, your card should work unless you formatted it in the computer, in which case you'll have to format (completely erases it) it in the camera.

With a blank memory card in my Samsung BL103, it still says "memory full"


It is either unreadable or had hidden files on it, both will be resolved when you format the card. You need to reformat the memory card in a format the camera can read.

FAT16 probably best or format it on the camera itself.

Says memory card is full but it is empty. Internal memory is working fine.


Hi there,

Please try to format your memory using you camera. If problem is still there, then reformat your memory card at PC.

I hope either will work.

Pushed the Format button on my L100 Samsung Digital camera and my memory card was erased??? Please explain this?


formatting the memory card automatically erases all the files in the memory card.
it's like restoring the memory card to factory settings to be compatible with your camera.

when you format the memory card using the camera the camera erases everything then creates folders that the camera needs to store pictures in your memory card.

you can try to look for software that can TRY to retrieve the images but i cannot assure you that this will work
