I'm assuming you are NOT on macro settings, right? and, is it possible that those are movie clips, instead?

    if you have a laptop, insert the card into that reader, if you have one, and see how much is on card..that will answer this nicely

Have you tryed eraseing / formating it in the 740?

Make sure the camara uses the card instead of internal memory
it might be that its saveing the images into the cameras internal memory witch is probably just about 3-4 shots.

I've had the Samsung L200 with the same Panasonic 1GB memory card for the last 3 years and it's been great, but all of a sudden today it started saying 'memory full' after only taking a few...


The camera is telling you that the internal memory is full. To get your card to work, you must clear it. With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" and follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Then, your card should work unless you formatted it in the computer, in which case you'll have to format (completely erases it) it in the camera.

Says memory is full when its not...


1. Use a card reader and download the 8 pictures to your computer. 2.With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" or "initialize" and follow the on-screen instructions. 3. Go into the menu and see if your camera has an entry for "reset". If it does, reset the camera. 4. Insert the memory stick and do the "format"/"initialize" thing again. Everything should work properly now.

I have a Nikon D70 and i am a photographer I shot a customers photos today. I shot the first half of the photos on this compact flash card and downloaded to my computer and then put it back in the camera...


shoot,
Is this a small capacity SD card? Like a 512mb or 1GB card?, you have to be careful not to shoot til the card is full, there's a risk of loosing data or corrupting what's on it. There are recovery utilities that can be loaded on your PC or Mac and run with a card reader to get the images back that are on the card. you didn't say what type of software you are using with the camera, is it Picture Project or Nikon's Preview software? Not just the Windows generic camera download. Also are you shooting in RAW? Let me know if I can help, I'll get you a name of a disk recovery site.

2 gb memory card displays "full" with only 8 pictures


Samsung only guarantees that a 1GB external memory card will work. If you look at the user manual on page 77. I just used a 1GB memory card instead and it worked fine.
I am not saying that no memory cards greater than 1GB will work, but if it doesn't work or stops working then it is because the software for the phone is not set up to handle it. I had the same issue and had to switch to a 1GB card.

MEMORY CARD


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.

Memory card


Hi - no, the DSC-P7 isn't compatible with Memory Stick Pro, only original Memory Stick, meaning you're limited to 128MB/stick. Having said that, the P7 is only a 3.2MPixel camera, 128MB will hold quite a few pictures, even at full resolution.
