Re: memory card

You must "format" the memory with your camera, not with computers, select "format" on the menu ,while your trying to see the pictures, good luck

Well my camera is a Casio Exilim Anti-shake DSP. When i put all my photos onto my laptop i tried to put them back on the card. But after i tried i turned on the camera and it says "MEMORY FULL"...

Okay, you put your pictures on the computer hard drive but, the pictures will still be on the card until you format the memory card in the camera. So then you loaded the pictures back on the card so in fact you have two sets of the same pictures on the memory card maxing out the cared capacity. I doubt they will show on the camera because there will be different file formats one from the camera and another from the computer. So to clean things up first make sure you have your pictures on the computer hard drive then safely remove hardware or eject the camera memory card and unplug the cable. then go into your camera settings looking for "Format" might also say initialize but format is pretty well universal anyway find format and follow the screen. Formatting cleans off the memory card and reformat the card back to new to receive more pictures.

Internal Memory full; No memory card in; Will not take pictures;

You need to get a memory card and promise to never use the internal memory only causes problems as you have found out. When you get the new card follow this procedure: 1. With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" and follow the on-screen instructions to format the internal memory. 2. Insert the new card and do the format thing again to prepare the new card. Happy photography!

Kodak Easyshare V803 "unrecognized file format."

Sounds like there is a fault in the SD card.

Try an alt. card reader and computer.

Hopefully you will have the chance to retrieve the pics. If not ;(

Once pics are transferred. The SD card needs to be formatted. Remember this will delete all data on the card.

I uploaded my pictures from my memory card onto the computer. When I put the card back into my camera, the camera won't read the memory card and it says the internal memory is full (12 pictures). How do...

If you indeed have the pictures on your computer (and are safely stored)... you might try selecting the format memory card function in the camera, to reformat the card, in case it was somehow corrupted while connected to the computer.

I just got back from my first cruise and took so many pictures. I don't have a USB so I went to go place the memory card into my computer but it won't read the card. So when I put the memory card back into...

i know its not ideal but why dont you borrow a friends camera and usb lead, put your card into their camera and upload them onto your computer via their camera, at least then you can save your special pictures and rectify the problem later

Screen reading memory card not initialized

It sounds like your XD card is corrupted. How and why i couldn't tell you. You will need to get the pictures recovered from the card using a special software (image recovery software, can down load for free from some web sites, or some companies can try and do it for you) and then try and format the card in the camera. DO NOT FORMAT THE CARD BEFORE YOU RETRIVE YOUR IMAGES. If you do all traces of the images may be lost.

All the best and happy snapping.

Screen reading memory card not initialized


  • Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from or
  • 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
  • 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  • 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  • 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
  • 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

    Initializing of xD-Picture card

    The S3000 has a 512MB limit according to Fuji. Ther is also no firmware upgrade to address this issue. However I loaded a 1GB Olympus M type card into th S3000, which was pre-fornatted and worked straight away. After putting the card into the reader in my laptop, and then returning to the camera, the camera identified the card as not initialized. I tried to format the card in the camera but this didn't work.

    To fix this I connected the camera to the computer using the USB cable located the camera card via My Computer, left clicked on and did a quick format in FAT (FAT16). After this the camera read the card and indicated 1305 frames available at 3M.

    What type of memory card are you using?  Is this a new problem since you've started using a new memory card?
    The A330 can't use some of the newer types of xD cards.  These have letters before the file size like "H512mb" or "M1gb".
    You can only use plain xD cards with no letter in front, like the small 8mb or 16mb card that came with the camera. Or, you can download a firmware upgrade to us type "M" xD cards. Read about that here:

    Or, if a new memory card is likely not the problem, you could try re-initializing the card.  Make sure to copy any pictures from the card onto your computer first.  Re-initializing will erase all data from the card.
    In the Menu, use the right button to go over to "Set".  Arrow up to choose "Set-up".  Then arrow down on the "1" screen to "Format".  It will step you through reformatting the card.
    Hope this helps, -Kelly.
