Take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. Here's some freeware photo recovery software that should be what you're looking for:

http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/recovering-those-accidentally-lost.html

You will need to use a flash card reader with this software. If you don't have one, get one, they're cheap:

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=sr_st?keywords=card+reader&rs=172282&page=1&rh=n%3A172282%2Ck%3Acard+reader&sort=price

The reason this occurred is that you likely never formatted the card. The card will work fine in the beginning but eventually will corrupt. AFTER you've recovered the photos, format the card IN YOUR CAMERA to prevent this from happening again (dig out that instruction manual to figure out how). Keep in mind formatting will also totally erase your card, so again only do this after you've recovered the photos.

    If you tried PC Inspector Smart Recovery AND used its "Intensive" mode (it's under File/Settings), then that's about all that you can do. Note Intensive mode might take all night to run.

I inserted memory card with pictures on it, cant take but 2 pictures and it says its full.


You need to clear your memory card by either transferring the photos to your computer or by formatting the memory card. If you've already downloaded the photos but failed to erase them from the card, formatting will take care of that.

7D wont work. It switches on but wont take a picture and the menu screen wont come on


Try formatting a memory card and trying it again. If the buffer is full and the card is full or corrupt the camera cannot take another image because it has nowhere to put it. Corrupt cards can cause a lot of problems Formatting cards regularly will made a big difference is camera performance. JUST BEWARE, FORMATTING PERMANENTLY ERASES ALL MEMORY CARD DATA., So copy the card info over to a HHD, or flash drive before you format.

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.

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.

I just bought a sanyo camera vpc-t1495 and took 2 pictures and now its saying memory is ful. what do i do to correct this.


Good day,

The camera has a small internal memory that you can use to store photos on. The internal memory is normally not enough to take a lot of photos. You are able to delete the current photos by erasing the memory or deleting the photos one by one.

The solution is to purchase a memory card. I would recommend a 4 Gb SD Card.

With the extra space the memory card provides it will take a while before you run out of memory. When the card is starting to get full download all the images to your computer and erase the SD Card.

Hope this answers your question!

Regards

Erasing the pictures using the computer is the problem. Your camera does not recognize the card anymore. If your pics are safely on your computer, format the card in the camera to get it working again.

My camera won't take pics


Did you erase the card using the computer instead of the camera? If so, that's your problem. The camera still sees all the pictures and thinks the card is full. You should format the card in the camera to completely erase it.

Internal memory is full,I have erased all


Take out memory card from camera, format internal memory to delete all pictures at once or delete them one by one.
Once memory card is inserted in camera, internal memory is no longer available to store/ delete pictures so remove memory card from camera to get access to internal memory.
