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.

Says memory card full when card is empty on a Canon G10

Check the memory card to see if you have accidentally protected it. There should be a little physical switch that you can slide to protect and unprotect your card. It is very similar to the write-protect switch for old 3.5" floppy disks, if you remember what those are.
Check also to see if you can write files to your card through your computer. The card could be defective, which may also give you that error through the camera.
Good luck,

Camera reads card as full when not

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.

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) not use the computer. Hope it works!

Canon S5 died.

If it was less than a year old, I hope you sent it to Canon for repair.

If not, then you have to have your camera professional serviced to repair it.

It may be an internal switch, the DC/DC converter board, or a defect in the main board.

Best regards,

Camera says batteries are dead.

Either these batteries are dying of old age, or it sounds to me that these are either not official Nikon EN-EL9 batteries, either that or that they have been charged on a third-party charger.  Using cheap alternative batteries can be extremely dangerous as they often do not have the safety circuits that genuine batteries do.

Compact flash disk

Yes they can and do go bad on occasion. But before throwing it out, attempt to format it in your camera. Find the menu selection that allows you to do a "full" or "low level" format, NOT a "quick" format. If the card still misbehaves, then it's time to retire that card.

Memory card appears full but its empty?!

Although formatting the card should take care of that, I have used cards to transfer data from one computer to another, then the folder on the card is invisible to the camera, but still taking up space. Empty the card via the card reader by dragging files to the trash, then emptying the trash.
