Fully delete memory

I have had my camera for nearly 4 years.  I have never used a memory card to store my pictures or recordings. All functions have almost always been formatted at normal setting over these past years so I have experience in knowing the capacitance of the camera as to how many minutes of recording or number of pictures it can hold before the camera lets me know that "memory is full." Lately, the recording capability has been minuscule. I am only able to record less than 3 minutes of sound before it is full and less than a minute of video.  Any ideas as to how to completely empty out the memory or increase the capacity of the camera?  I truly love how this camera has performed over the years and the loads of memories it has helped me to capture.

Can't play back videos on my experna; memory card Sandisk class 4 8Gb. Have a canon Vixia HFR10 camcorder

Okay, ours is a different brand (JVC) but they may have some basic similarities in function. To playback video clips stored on the memory card, put the memory card in the card reader slot of the computer and put the files onto the computer. Playback the clips from your computer video or photo file. (Ours won't playback video stored on the memory card through the camera.)

To playback video clips stored on the camera hard drive through the camera, we open the viewer screen, look at the function keys on the camera body, select the "Play" button. On the screen it displays thumbnails of the various video clips. We use the toggle/function key to select from the menu containing options for playback, edit, delete, protect, etc.

You can take the memory card out from Sony Camera, and then connect the memory card to computer with a card reader, you can then download a data recovery software to scan the memory card and recover lost photo and video files

Seems like its time to flush the contents of the memory card of camcorder to a computer.
There's a limited amount of memory in every memory card. After constant recording, the memory  gets full and the recorded stuff needs to be either deleted or flushed (uploaded to a computer) to make room for newly recorded stuff.

Unless you have a blank memory card, your problem should be solved by the above mentioned idea.

Set the mode switch to MEMORY CARD. 2. Set the power switch to PLAYER. 3. Using the (FWD) and (REV) buttons, search for the still image that you want to delete. 4. Press the MENU button. 5. Turn the MENU DIAL to highlight MEMORY and press the ENTER button. The MEMORY SET submenu will appear. 6. Turn the MENU DIAL to highlight DELETE and press the ENTER button. Using the MENU DIAL, select either THIS FILE or ALL FILES and press the ENTER button. *THIS FILE : deletes only the file currently selected. *ALL FILES : deletes all files stored in the Memory Card. 7. A box will appear to verify whether you wish to delete the image(s).
