Plug your media card into a card reader on your computer and delete the photos there, or you can format the card from your camera and that will delete everything.

I am unable to take photo because of DCF full Erros come often ES30


This is what the manual says:
File names do not match the DCF standard.
Transfer the files on the memory card to your
computer, and then format the card. (p. 76)
Format in the camera, not in a cardslot of your computer.
Lots of errors, can be solved by removing and reinserting the battery(ies)

Could you please tell me, what does DCIM in my sony ipod mean? how can i use that or when do i use that? please


Yes, that is the access to you picture files.

From WIKI:



Design rule for Camera File system (DCF) is a JEITA specification (number CP-3461) which defines a file format and file system for digital cameras, including the directory structure, file naming method, character set, file format, and metadata format. It is currently the de facto industry standard for digital still cameras. The file format of DCF is based on the Exif 2.2 specification.
The latest version of the standard is v 2.3.
The filesystem in a digital camera contains a DCIM (Digital Camera images) directory which contains possibly multiple subdirectories with names such as "123ABCDE", which consist of a unique directory number (in the range 100...999) and five alphanumeric characters, which may be freely chosen and often refer to a camera maker. These directories contain files with names such as "ABCD1234.JPG", which consist of four alphanumeric characters (often "DSC_" or "IMG_"), followed by a number. The file extension is "JPG" for Exif files and "THM" for Exif files that represent thumbnails. Other file formats use different extensions. Multiple files sharing a number (even if the file extension or the four alphanumeric characters are different) are considered related and form a DCF object.
For example, the files on a Nikon D40 are arranged according to the above specification. Thus, a card formatted by the camera will have a partition named "NIKOND40", with a subdirectory named "DCIM". This directory contains a subdirectory named by default "100NCD40", in which images are stored. images are named "DSC_xxxx", where xxxx represents the file's sequential number.
As this is an industry standard, similar directory structures and naming procedures can be found in most digital cameras.
[edit] AccessCamera file systems can usually be accessed by directly mounting them via the USB mass storage device class protocol, which exposes the file layout, whether DCF compliant or otherwise. Alternatively, and independent of DCF, files may be accessed via the Picture Transfer Protocol, which provides an object-oriented view and need not expose the file layout.
The file system layout is often opaque to users, as images are copied onto a computer or printer and the application deals with layout

When l take my SD card, it still says " DCF Full Error"


Hello and Welcome

The DCF error message with your Samsung camera nearly always occurs when you're using a memory card that was formatted with a different camera, and the file format structure is not compatible with your Samsung camera. You will have to format the card with the Samsung camera.However, make sure you download any photos to your computer first

Anymore help, I am here to help
Best of Luck

Missing Pictures


You may have chosen the delete from camera option. When you transfered the photos.

Have a closer look at the options when you download the next lot of photos, some times there is a tick box for delete while transfering.

Can images recorded by another digital camera be played on this camera?


It is possible if they support the Exif data (image data) based on DCF. However, they may not be played back, or played back as thumbnails depending on the file format, image size or data configuration in a file. Also, the audio files attached with images cannot be played on this camera. DCF = abbreviated expressions of a standard for aim at the compatibility in files between the related devices such as digital cameras. Please refer to the instruction manual of your camera (main specification - image file format) to confirm if the camera is compliant to DCF or not.
