Memory card saying "full" when its not

I bought a toshiba 4gb sd hc memory card for my samsung digimax d73 camera and when i turn the camera on it says "memory full". However, if I take out the memory card and take some pictures then put the memory card back in, I can successfully copy those photos over to the memory card. Why cant I just take pictures with the card in? Thanks

Your problem is that you are using an incompatible type of memory card.

Your camera was designed to use SD cards with a maximum capacity of 2GB. It cannot use larger capacity models, and is also incompatible with the later SDHC cards.

SDHC cards are the same shape and will fit your camera, but have differences beneath the skin and so won't work properly in your camera. Without any memory card in place your camera uses internal memory; it's then only by lucky chance that your camera has sufficient SDHC compatibility to allow you to transfer the internal memory image to the SDHC card when you subsequently insert it into your camera.

Your only solutions are to either use an SD card with a maximum capacity of 2GB or to replace the camera with a later model which is fully SDHC compliant.

Camera saying memory full but card brand new


Not only the size is important, the manual says SD max 2 GB.
But even a 1GB SDHC card won't work, because the camera is not compatible with SDHC and SDXC.
They used to make SD cards up to 4 GB, but most new cards from 1 GB and up are SDHC and above 32 GB the cards are SDXC. Older camera's can't handle these cards, although they look the same.
To read more and to understand compatibility from device versus Memory card, read this:

The A402 works with MMC and SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible. You need to use cards 2GB and smaller.

I just bought a brand new scandisk 4gb card and it says that the memory is full even though i didn't take any pictures... what do i do?


The S700 uses SD cards. Your new 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it will fit into the slot, it will not work in the S700 (as you've discovered). You'll have to limit yourself to SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Unfortunately, you can't. The D53 works with MMC and SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work. Since this is a hardware issue, it is not something that can be changed with a firmware update. You need to use cards 2GB and smaller.

Hello my camera is a samsung digimax d73 and when i turn it on it says its locked and would like to know how to corrected thanks ernie


SD and SDHC 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.

Hi,just bought a 4gb sd card for my digimax s600 but it won,t work.when i switch on camera, screen says..format..yes.confirm ok.when i do this i get check sd card . i put in old card it works fine??..


Does your camera support SD HC? Anything above a 2gb SD card is concider a HC; so if your camera can't support HC format then you can not use that card.
