Since I am not sure of the Camera Model, I will go with usual method:
Go into playback mode, button or dial with a [>] button on it.
Select the picture you want to delete and either directly the delete button with trash can icon or click menu and then select Delete.
Easier way is, load the SD card into laptop, either directly if port is available, else you can get a SD card reader from most of the stores, which connects to the USB port.
If in Windows System, once connected, let it install needed drivers and softwares.
After its done, Navigate to the newly created Drive in My Computer (Computer)
Go into DCIM folder or any other folder with most recent date/time associated with it.
Once inside, select the photos you want to delete and click delete. Confirm deletion.
If you haven't done anything to the memory card since you deleted the pictures then you have a good chance to recover at least some of your pictures. Do a Google search for "data recovery software" and select a program for your computer and operating system. Put the card into a card reader attached to your computer and run the program.
First, connect the Camera to the computer and locate the Picture folder on the camera. Next, open the picture folder on the Camera and then press the ctrl and A keys on the Keyboard together to select all the images. Next, press shift and delete keys together to delete all the images at once. Then, click OK to confirm deletion.
SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.
I had the same problem with my digital cam/corder! An alternative solution to deleting pictures off the camera is, trickily enough, through your computer! This may be a bit of a hassle as you have preloaded your pics. What you will need to do is redownload your pics. You should be asked the option of deleting your pictures after download, and you click on the box.
I have two suggestions.
First, you can tag a bunch of your photos on the camera, and then delete them in one operation. You can also delete all the photos on the camera in one operation. This is explained in the owner's manual on page 45 (can be downloaded from www.samsungcamera.com):
1. Select a desired sub menu by pressing the
UP/ DOWN button and press the OK button.
[Select] : Selection window for an image to delete
- Up/ Down/ Left/ Right : Select an image
- Zoom T Button : Select the image for deletion.
- OK Button : Press the OK Button to display the
confirmation message. Select the
[Yes] menu and press the OK button
to delete marked images.
[All Pics] : Displays confirmation window. Select
the [Yes] menu and press the OK
button to delete all unprotected images.
If there aren?t protected images, all the
images are deleted and a [No Image!]
message will display.
2. After deletion, the screen will be changed to the
play mode screen.
My alternative suggestion is to use a better program on your PC for downloading and organizing photos. You can get a really nice (and free!) one at www.preclick.com. When you download photos using this, it gives you the option of deleting the downloaded photos from the camera at the same time.
