Try cleaning the contacts on the memory card(usually sraping them lightly with a knife helps with contact) and if that doesn't work try formatting the card in your computer.

This error message means that the card is corrupted or formatted for another digital camera. Turn off the camera. Insert a new card or format the card.
Try to format the memmory card using a card reader and the PC this should solve your problem if not you have to replace the memmory card.

The card may have become corrupted. Use a separate card reader and download any pictures from the card. Then, insert it into the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions.

I just bought a new memory card but I keep getting "Internal Memory Full" message. How can I fix this problem.


Your camera is supported by: Memory card support : SD/MMC up to 2 Gigabyte. If you are using any other card your camera might give you an error message such as this one.

Try to format the memory card in my camera? NOTE this will delete all existing data on your card.
Do the following:
  1. Insert the memory card into the camera. Make sure the card is firmly seated (push in the card until it clicks into place).
  2. Turn on the camera.
  3. Press the Menu button, then go to the Setup Menu.
  4. Scroll up or down to the Format option, then press the OK button

Hello,

Make sure that the memory card you used is compatible w/ your camera. If same issue persists after using the compatible card, camera is unable to detect the memory card. Card compartment is defective. call 1.800.235.6325 for repair.


Thanks.

Hi there
Check to make sure the cards write protect is off, take the card out of the camera, face the card towards you, look for a small white tab on the left hand side of the card, to unlock it push the tab down, it will be at the side of the card like this 59a6de4.jpg . Put it back in the camera and use the menu to format the card.
If the format fails then its a possibility that you will need a new card.


Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

Largest Compact Flash card a Kodac DC290 will acomodate?


To the best of my knowledge, the largest Flash Memory card a DC290 can utilize, is 256 MB. The 290 is an upgrade to the 260 and the largest that could use is 256 MB. I've not tried anything larger so I don't know if it could only "see" 256 MB of something larger or if it would not recognize it at all.

Kodak memory card error


Hey hardygurl198,
What is most likely going on is you need to format the card so it will work in your camera. Every time you get a new memory card for a digital camera or if you put a memory card formatted to a different camera in a new digital camera you will need to format the memory card before you can use it. Directions on how to format your memory card are on page 27 of your camera manual, and I have provided a link to a PDF download of your manual in case you need it. I hope this helps!
