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.
Digital cameras that come with internal memory usually have a very small amount of storage capacity (usually 32 or 64MB). I'm not sure why the manufacturers even bother with internal storage when you can get memory cards that have much more capacity. You need to either download the photos you've taken to your PC and then delete the photos so you can take more shots, or you need to insert a memory card. Depending on your model of camera you need a microSD or SD card. Let me know the model number of the camera and I will tell you what you need to get.
Your memory card may think it's full if you've been deleting pics from it when it's in your PC and not in the camera.
If you've offloaded all the pics you want to from your memory card, put
it back in your camera and "reformat" the card - there should be
instructions how to do this in your camera manual. (If you've misplaced
your manual you can likely find an online version on the website of your
camera manufacturer). Hopefully this will fix your problem.
From now on, (even if you have to buy a new memory card), don't do any
editing or deleting of pics directly on the memory media while it is in
your PC (or Mac). Offload your pics to a file of their own on the PC
(you can edit pics from that file). Then put the memory card back into
the camera, verify that you did indeed successfully offload the pics to
the PC (with the media card out of the PC), then delete the pics from
the card while it's in the camera.
Reformat the memory card periodically (in the camera) after you've
offloaded your pics (reformatting will erase all pics so you've gotta be
sure you captured them elsewhere) to maintain the 'health' & full
functionality of your memory card.
Apparently, you used the internal memory before putting in the memory card. Now the camera only wants to use the internal memory. Here's the fix...with no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Then, insert the memory card. If this is a new card, you will need to format it in the camera, too. If there are any pics on it, download them first using a card reader if necessary, because the card will be completely erased.
You may have your photo gallery set to erase after downloads. You need to change that. Pics erased on your computer will still register as files on your camera even though you can't see them. You need to format the card in the camera. If you can't change the settings in your photo gallery, you could use a card reader and download to a folder you create on your desktop. From there, you can transfer them to photo gallery and your originals are still on the memory card.
You need to get that one pic out of the internal memory. Here's how...remove your memory card. Go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Then, insert your memory card and do the "format" thing again to erase and initialize the card. Everything should work properly now.
If you erase them off your memory card they shouldn't be transfering back onto your computer. I would say that maybe they are saved on your internal memory of the camera also. Take your memory card out and see if when you turn the camera on you have pics in the camera stored. If you do delete them then. :)
