Card full, but it is not!

I can no longer take any pictures because my card says it is full, when i always delete all my pics after i download them to my computer.    When it says it is full, i go back into it and it says "no pictures" but when i try to take another picture it says, "card full."  What is going on? How do i get my camera to take pictures besides just throwing this thing away and getting another brand? Thank you kindly, Christine

Put the card back into the camera and format it.

In the future, always format the camera after you finish download your pictures, instead of deleting them.

Want to delete memory


The best way to delete all your pictures and videos from your memory card is to format the card in the camera. This should be done each time you finish download your pictures and videos to your computer. FixYa is full of people asking how to recover pics from cards that haven't been formatted recently.The format command is in the setup section of the menul

After deleting the pictures from the memory card and putting it back into the camera, the pictures are loaded back on the card, what could be the problem? When I put a new card it acts like it is froze up.


Sounds like you failed to delete internal memory from setup menu before inserting card, and ALWAYS use camera to delete pics...from internal memory and from card...do not delete pics using a PC, or format card on PC.

How do i get the pictures from my camera to the memory card


the question I ask is why would you want to do this?

The camera has XX Mb of memory in case the card becomes full. Generally one downloads the pics on to a PC and deletes the Camera files to start again

If you want to keep the pic files in memory and save them tpo your pc. remove the card for safety.. Interrogate your camera via the connection cord and the software it came with. Download the folder with the pics in memory to your PC. Then delete the files on the camera. Insert the SD card and In menu, set up to save files to SD card rather than memory while there is space.

Please rate my help++++Thanks fore using FIXYA

Internal memory is full,I have erased all


Take out memory card from camera, format internal memory to delete all pictures at once or delete them one by one.
Once memory card is inserted in camera, internal memory is no longer available to store/ delete pictures so remove memory card from camera to get access to internal memory.

Not able to 'delete' a picture from my Lumix TZ3


Sounds like a MobileMate quirk Tanya. Use your USB cable connection to your PC/Camera interface and delete pics that way too see if this funny goes away.

If it does, and I believe it will, then it is a SanDisk issue not revising the File Allocation Table(FAT) after deleting the Pic File on the mem card.

You could also find out if this is just an SDHC SD card reader issue by using an older less dense standard 1 or 2Meg non-SDHC mem card in the reader and see if issue goes away.

The fallback of course to view and delete the pics on the camera before download, or download pics then note which pic file numbers you want deleted after viewing on PC, then put SD card back in camera and delete them there.

Another option for trial, is to cut and paste the whole DCIM folder, or sub pic folder to your PC from off the SD card using the card reader. The camera automatically generates subfolders under the DCIM folder if you completely remove(deleting by a cut or move), when you take your first picture on a camera with a DCIM but not sub pic folder. Try this first and I think you will find all pics will be deleted from camera that are in a subfolder under DCIM. If not, then cut or move the whole DCIM folder and create a new DCIM(empty) folder on the SD card using the PC and card reader. Of course using this method you cannot selective delete individual pics from the mem card. You would be deleting them all after the Folder cut or move from the SD card.

I took about 200 pictures and they were suddenly deleted off my camera. i thought they were accidentally deleted. i took about 40 more pics and it said my memory card was full so i know they're still there...


get a memory card reader and try to download pics from card to comp-then open and click any folders you see related to memory card-card will show up as a new drive letter in my computer-pics may be in different folder and still be there-if you can't find pics at all go to sandisk.com and get recovery software to see if you can still retrive them

Memory Card Deleting Photos After A Certain Amount Of Time??


I've have xD cards that I thought I deleted the photos, but they showed up on the Xd card when i put it in the card reader to download another set of pics. I think it happened because I used the card in 2 different cameras (thus, the cam each saved pics in their own different formats).

Hi I have a Finepix A920 digital camera which despite downloading the pictures from the camera keeps saying internal memory card full. Any Ideas ?


Downloading pix does not remove pix from card, YOu must manually delete pics on card or use Picasa to download and choose "delete card contents after download" option or similiar option of your software.
