Not much memory

I took 3 pictures on my new camera that i got for christmas, and after the third picture, it said that the memory was full.
i know thats not natural. but i do know that you can add extra memory. my uncle who works with cameras thought that the place where memory goes was for the extra memory.
but there wasnt anything that would be the memory in my box that the camera was in. please help me!

Re: not much memory

You need to buy a memory card. Most cameras can take only about 7 pictures with the memory on it. Memory cards are sold separately

To get the card to work, you must erase the internal memory. With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" and follow the on-screen instructions. After that, the card should work properly.

I just bought a new camera (a GE C1033) and I took 1 picture and it now says the memory is full. I do not have in a memory card, so how can I use the internal memory and make it so that my memory won't be...

Well, the internal memory isn't all that big but, you can reduce the image size and possible get four pictures out of the camera before the memory is full again. Best bet is to go get the memory card for that camera.

I just purchased a GE E1486TW. It has 18MB of memory. I took 3 pictures and It said that the memory was full. Is this normal? This is my first digital camera. Thanks

You will need an additional memory device; such as an SD card; to store more pictures.
What you are currently using is only the internal memory, which is basically emergency backup for if your card is full or if theres no card inserted.
SD cards range in sizes and prices, but are relatively inexpensive to buy; any supplementary memory will give you more than 3 pictures, though.

Hello. You need to buy a SD card to store your pictures on.This card slides into a slot on the side of the camera.You may have a 2GB limit check with Kodak or your manual before you buy anything larger.The 2GB card will store several hundred pics at 7 megapixil size.

Internal Memory is full??

If you dont put a memory card in your camera it is forced to record on and read from the internal memory (which is pretty small). If you do insert a memory card (is it a memory stick?) you can read the card but not the internal memory. Try it both with and without the memory stick.

I can't get to my pictures!

did you buy a memory card along with your camera? I got the camera and they threw in a memory card with it for free. I now know why. My pictures will not always save onto this memory card. i took the memory card out of my old camera and put it in this one, and, the pictures saved. strangely, when i put my new card back in my new camera and took a picture; it saved to it again!
so i believe this could work for you. it sucks. you lose the pictures. but atleast the camera does not have to just be thrown away.

New camera won't work!

That message is probably because you have not saved any images in the camera's internal memory. Whatever pictures you took are on the SD card. Try taking a couple of pics using the SD card and try the review. If you are able to review, then all is well. If you cannot review, then one of 2 things:
1. Faulty SD card..Replace or format it.
2. Remove the SD card and take a pic. The pic will be saved in the camera's internal memory. If you still cant preview, probably a fault with the camera, and you'll need to service it.
