Re: memory card says it's full

This can happen if there is a hidden recycle folder on the card. I had a similar problem that was solved by reformating the card.

What to do when it says internal memory full

Delete some pictures off you camera. It means that there is no more room on your memory.

Make sure to transfer them to a computer, before you delete them, as you wouldn't want to lose precious memories.

After taking only two -three photo , camera is displaying memory full, please help me with this

Hello - You're camera has a little less than 10 MB of memory with sounds exactly right (2-3 photos) with a 12 megapixel camera. Such images are large.
You need to purchase a memory card to insert into your camera to store pictures. Your camera takes several kinds of memory cards but I suggest your purchase a SD memory card of two GB in size. You can get them almost anywhere, Super Markets, Chain Drug Stores, Places like Walmart, Kmart, etc. It'll cost about $15 or so.
Happy Photo Snapping, Mikeywaf

I just bought a sanyo camera vpc-t1495 and took 2 pictures and now its saying memory is ful. what do i do to correct this.

Good day,

The camera has a small internal memory that you can use to store photos on. The internal memory is normally not enough to take a lot of photos. You are able to delete the current photos by erasing the memory or deleting the photos one by one.

The solution is to purchase a memory card. I would recommend a 4 Gb SD Card.

With the extra space the memory card provides it will take a while before you run out of memory. When the card is starting to get full download all the images to your computer and erase the SD Card.

Hope this answers your question!

The 1GB disk, only takesabout 22 pictures beforeit says the memory is full

Check the setting where the pictures are being stored. It may be still storing to the internal memory.

Also check what resolution you are capturing your snaps. Although 22 pictures should not fill your memory but high resolution photos can take 5-6 MB /photo, so you can accomodate about 180-200 photos in 1GB. Try reducing the photo resolution, if you are not planning to print them.

Also, have you downloaded all the previous snaps from the card and deleted it from the 1GB card?

Keep saying memory full and I have not used it yet

all cameras have a small internal memory, in your case three pictures, you need a memry card, your manual should tell you which type you need (although for polaroid, i think [but am not sure] thit it will be an SD card) you should probably get a 1-4 gb card, as this will let you take a few hundred photos, before you have to download them onto your computer

Internal memory only permits 5 photos

Reformat the card, preferably on your computer.

Almost always works. If not, the card could be too large, as they will not work with over 2 Gb.

If under 2 Gb, and refortmatting doesn't work, test the card in another camera; test another care in this camera.

Just erased all my pictures from my SD 1 Gb memory card but when I put it back in my Canon SD1000 it says 'Memory Card full' - as though it still thinks it's full but it says 'No image' when I try to...

If it says card full then it still is. Sometimes this happens when you pull the card out before it is done ereasing. A camera shop has listings of places that can get your pictures back. You can try opening the card on your computer using a card reader, 5 bucks on up, I personally don't like using a cable from the camera to the computer- to many things can hose up that way, and it can be darn frustrating doing it that way. Get a cheap usb card reader, and it works much better.

I had the same problem today with a 2 GB card. I think it may be the size of the card. When I put in an old 32 MB card it worked fine.

Faulty Memory Stick

See if you can download the photos through the USB cable. Then try reformatting it in the camera. Otherwise, I probably would get rid of it. Memory is cheap enough, and it's not worth the risk to keep around an unreliable memory card.
