The card has corrupted. You'll likely need to use recovery software (see this article). After recovery, youmay need to format the card in your camera to correct the corruption.

Why does it keep saying memory full after I have only taken 6 pictures

You need to go to the store and buy Samsung S730 A-DATA 4GB SDHC Memory Card (Class 4)
It is worth about 8-20$. The memory card is used to save pictures. Here is an example:

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.

Unreconized file format and also says interal memory full

Internal memory is full as you have been saving pictures there rather than your card. Have you checked those are not your missing photos?
Get a new sd card for your camera-I keep 3 cards for mine so that I don't need to delete anything for ages. I back up all photos to pc. The photos on your internal memory can be copied onto your new sd card when you insert it. When you are certain they are on the card AND backed up on the pc then you can delete them from the internal memory.Try mrnu>image storage. On your internal memory there will be an option to copy the photos to a card when you have one in your camera. Do check the internal memory-it is full of pictures-they may be the ones you want!

I lost user manual of my Sony Cybershot DSC-W150

I think you have set the "image storage" to internal. If you take a picture the memory reading should go down one shot-if it doesnt it is because your photos are on the internal memory instead of on auto or memory card. If you take out the card then try to view the pictures hopefully you will now see them. Eventually if this is the problem you will get a notice telling you that "internal memory is now full£.

Internal memory card full

You are using built in internal memory (11Mb).

One of these must help:
*Check memory card.
*Check picture saving settings.
*Reset to factory defaults.

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.

Screen shows full memory card

It's quite possible that it's actually taking photos and storing them to the camera's onboard memory and not the memory card, explaining why it gets full so quickly with two pictures and why you can only delete two pictures. Look for a setting to change the storage to the memory card.
