You can use the camera to do this, but it's slightly different on every camera. You'll need to put the camera into the picture review mode, and the most have some sort of delete or trash can button on them. If you post your model I can be more specific about it.

Another way you can do it, is if your printer or PC accepts the memory card you can remove the card from the camera and plug it into the computer / printer (make sure the printer is turned on if you are using it!). The open up "My Computer" and you will see the card under removable storage. Double click on the drive letter and then highlight everything and hit delete.

All done!

I accidently deleted my wedding pictures from my pny memory card/Nikon 5100 camera, can I restore them


I've used Recuva (free download). Do a thorough deep scan and save to another drive. Very simple to use as long as you have not reused same physical space on card.

Will pictures remain sharp when a smart card is reused several times?


No. images are stored digitally, so a one bit remains a one, while a zero remains a zero. The card will wear out eventually, after hundreds of thousands of write cycles, but that's after decades of normal use.
More importantly, you want to format the card regularly, like after each time you download pictures to a computer. If you simply delete the pictures each time, you're all but guaranteed to have a file system error eventually. Formatting avoids this.

My 7 year old daughter has used her camera, and some photos and viseos have a green key on the screen. Is it possible to remove the "lock" so the photos and videos can be deleted? I have loaded...


What make and model camera? On most cameras you unprotect a picture the same way you protected it, possibly by pushing a "protect" button. No matter what, you can clear everything off the card by formatting it. Cards should be formatted each time after you download pictures to a computer instead of deleting individual pictures. FixYa is full of people asking how to salvage pictures from cards they didn't format.

Does "memory card full" mean you have to purchase another for canon powershot sd750 or can you erase?


You can either erase the pictures or transfer them to a computer using the supplied USB cable or remove the flash memory and insert directly into the computer's sd card port.

Memory card in camera


The memory card on your camera will fill up. At that point you either copy the photos from your camera to your computer using the cable provided with the camera and then delete the photos from your memory card OR you can buy a new memory card and save the old one as a back up. Memory cards are not like film and can be reused many many times.

How do I delete all the photos on my Olympus 710 camera at the same time


You can do a permanent deletion of the memory card by going to the menu and choosing the Setup option and choosing the format option. Once you format the memory card all images are permanently deleted and the card can be reused to start taking and storing images again.

Olympus 790SW 7.1 MP reads full 1GB memory card is full after 2 pictures


Suggestion is to format the memory card and permanently delete all of the images from it. The card should then be able to be reused and you can start taking images again. To format the card go to Menu - setup and press ok - go to format and press ok - go to yes and press Ok. This will clear the card and you are back in business.
