Camera reads card as full when not

I have moved all images off disk onto my desktop and sandisk reads as empty. It is a 4GB disk and showing only 1.7GB available. When inserted into Lumix screen says [memory card full]. When opened on desktop there are no images only DCIM and MISC folders. How do I clear the disk so that I can use it in camera?

After inserting in your computer, you should get an option to reformat. Do that. Of course, you will lose anything on it. Also, camera should have that option somewhere in the menu. Hope this helps you some.

I cannot transfer the pictures from the phone disk to the computer. It shows that the camera folder is empty. Do I need to install a SanDisk driver first? How?


No the phone has saved the images in a format that is not known to your computer. You need to look up your phone information and find out what image format your phone saves in, and then download a program to read those image files on your pc.

Connect the camera with the card in it to the PC and then allow Windows to detect the camera and pop up a menu. This menu will have the option of copying files to the PC.

you should format your sd-card in your camera. the exact steps you should find in the manual. if this doesn't work your flash-card is probably defective. you need to know, that the number of read and write access to those flash cards is limited (a few thousand times). so it's normal that those cards die after some time.

Sandisk 4GB card reads full when it's empty.


I would suggest reformatting your disk to your camera. We have had those issues and it has cleared it up. Be sure any pics on your camera have been backed-up as you will loose all pics while reformatting. The key is to reformat your disk to your camera (use the camera's menu to located the reformat disk section)...do not use the computer. Hope it works!
