Memory full indication but no files in camera

Reformat the card by going to menu-set-up-format. Make sure your memory card is in the camera.

Possible deleted pictures on my casio ex-p505. Recharged battery and when I went to view my pics my camera reads no files.


Please download Disc Digger HERE. This is a free tool you can use that works very well and there is no installation required, just run the program once you downloaded it.

Once you have connected the memory card to the computer via either the camera or preferably with a usb card reader , run the program.

On the program , select the dig deep option for accidentaly deleted files or dig deeper for a formatted card. Then select the card you want to do the recovery on and run the program.

The data will be displayed and you can recover it from there. This will only work if the card has not been used since the pictures were lost. Save the files to a location on the computer hard drive and not back to the memory card as this will overwrite the other pictures that still needs to be recovered.

Some of the properties of the files may become lost in the recovery but the pictures should be fine.

Feel free to ask if you need more assistance.

Kind Regards

Hi i have a casio exilim and i am using a 2gb memory card in it, i went out last night and took lots of pictures after each pic was taken i viewed it to make sure it was ok or if i needed to take another...

You problem set your camera to use internal memory only. Set the memory function to memory card only and all pictures will go to the memory card until it is full. You can probably still transfer your pic files from internal memory to your card.

SD memory cards

Remove the card, slide the lock switch back and forth
several times to clear any dust off the contacts. Unlock
the card, then try it again.
Can the camera read the card? Is there anything on it?
Can the camera re-format/erase it?

Can you plug the memory card into a laptop, either directly,
or by using an adapter for the PCMCIA slot, and test it?

On my laptop, the card mounts as if it were a hard-drive,
with a drive letter. I can then browse through it, using
Windows explorer.

Once (if) the card is detected by the PC, open up MyComputer,
and click on:


This should show you additional columns with hard-drive

1) Check to see how big the memory card is (or detects)

How much room is left ?!

2) How is it formatted: FAT-16, FAT-32, NTFS

3) If the card is NTFS (not likely) make sure you
set the root security settings:

Righ click on the SD memory drive letter:

---> Properties ----> Security ----> Add ---> Everyone

Then set the EVERYONE's access level to FULL CONTROL

If you get an error message, stating that you are not
authorized to view or change the security settings for
this device, go into advanced security settings, and
take ownership of the device. Then exit and try again.

(You need to have an administrator priv's account to do this)

4) Try to browse the memory card, do you see any files ?

5) Try to copy them to your computer ?

6) Was the memory card full ? --> clear it, delete files

7) Can you reformat the memory card ?

Right click ---> format ---> accept any default settings

8) On you icon tray bar, look for a green arrow icon:

Click safely remove drive....

Wait for Windows to properly finalize and the drive
(memory module) and then remove it from the PC

9) If you do not own a laptop, take the card back to the store,
where you bought it, and ask them to try to recover any
pictures or files that may be on it, and then clear and
reformat it.

10) At this point, if the card will not function, it is time to
purchase another one.

11) Flash memory cards will fail after a limited number of
read/write cycles, due to internal degradation
with use. Unlike most other electronics, these chips have
a finite life (erase/write) cycles.

12) Don't overlook an "lock" or protection settings implemented
by the camera, to protect you from you :)

The camera could be simply telling you that there are
forgotten pictures on this stick and you cannot
over-write them unless you unlock the card first.

Good luck.

Are you using a memory card with this camera? I suggest that you take out this card and try viewing its contents using an inexpensive card reader connected to your PC. The camera stores the pictures in JPEG format so you should be able to find files with a .JPG extension on your memory card. HTH.

Memory card problem

On SD cards, there is a tiny sliding switch on the card itself, which "locks" the card, preventing files from being added or removed. Try removing the card, and checking this little slide switch. In this photo... ...the lock is the yellow bit on the left-hand side.

Casio ex-S500 memory full

Check the card to make sure it isn't "locked". SD cards have a tiny switch on their side which write protects them. If the card is "locked", then the camera can't write to it. See for a picture of the locking mechanism. If this is not the problem, you can try reformatting the card. Although you can format it in your computer, it is much better to format it in the camera itself, since they are often finicky about the formatting details.
