    I have tried both of these recommendations and the camera still states when switched on that images are being recorded to the internal memory. Do you have any other suggestions for me?

  • Helen Mole Apr 29, 2010

    Thanks for your continued assistance. The brand is Fujifilm A610 finepix and is 6.3 megapixels.

  • Helen Mole Apr 29, 2010

    The brand of the memory card is an Olympus xd picture card 2 GB.

  • Helen Mole Apr 29, 2010

    All I get is a message when switched on that "images are being recorded to internal memory". I have tried 2 different memory cards and they both don't work. The first is the one that came with the camera and the second is one I have recently purchased because I thought the error was with the memory card.

  • Helen Mole Apr 29, 2010

    I'm sorry I don't know what I have done. I did format the camera and erase all data (by mistake), the screen displays an image of a camera with "in" written on it and Format ok? Then underneath it has ERASE ALL DATA with ok & cancel after that. I apologise for my ignorance I am not very tech minded.

  • Helen Mole Apr 29, 2010

    Thank you soooooooooo much, am I an idiot or what???? I turned the memory card around & hey presto it works.

Hello and Welcome to Fixya.

Often a card is not recognized due to, wrong format, or the size of the card is too big for the camera to understand or the type of the card is not supported by the camera.

Lets begin with the format, with your camera, most likely in the set up menu, or similar, you will have a Format or erase option to erase the card and format it to the right format for the card to work.

If this doesn't solve the problem, then either the card is too big for the camera or its the wrong type.

Another issue could be that the contacts of the card reader are not touching the card --- before trying this please try another card with the camera only do this if all cards have this issue ---, you would extremely carefully pull those down.

Not Down as in out from the card reader, but down, as in to press down, so that when the card is inserted those contacts would touch the card properly.

    Okay, then you may need to change the storage option from internal to external or memory card. Send me the brand and model and I'll look into it.

  • Ekse Apr 29, 2010

    Thanks, I'll get back to you in a moment.

  • Ekse Apr 29, 2010

    do you get any warnings on the display of the camera ? No card? Card not initialized? card error? have you tried other cards?

  • Ekse Apr 29, 2010

    So you have done the Format - erase all data for the memory card in the menu? what did that tell you or did you format the internal memory instead?

  • Ekse Apr 29, 2010

    I've been going over the user manual for a while. Possible problem would be if the memory card is upside down, make sure the gold contacts of the card are facing away from the batteries when inserting the card.

  • Ekse Apr 29, 2010

    With the memory card installed the right way, if it still is not showing up or the IN is displayed, go to the SET up menu and do a reset.

    I owned a camera in the past where you had to select yourself which storage device to use, internal or memory card. but I can't find anything about that in this camera.

    So if the card is still not showing up after you have checked over all my suggestions, there might be a fault with the camera. I would be much more helpful If I could hold the camera in my own hands and take a look around, I'd suggest that you visit a camera shop or similar where a camera sales man or a camera repairer can take a look at it and find out the problem.

    The card and its size is supported by the camera, so it should work.

  • Ekse Apr 29, 2010

    Been there and done that, the XD card is the only card that fits in both ways, I've done it myself!

Getting an internal memory full message on my kodak easyshare c143 camera but it only has 9 pictures on it?

The internal memory is very small. You need to be saving the pictures to a memory card instead. However, Kodak cameras have this nasty habit....once you save a picture to its internal memory, it won't save to a memory card. To make your card work, remove it from the camera...go into the camera menu and find "format"....follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory....insert your card and it should work properly.

Copy Pictures From INTERNAL MEMORY to Memory Card (solution for those who have...

Samsung D53 Camera
Memory Card (Clean with no pictures on it!)
Fresh batteries

Memory card reader on your computer

You have several (or more) photos that were taken with no memory card inserted into the camera, and they have been stored on the camera's internal memory. You have no USB cord to get the pictures off your camera.

I don't know if this is in the manual (as this is a used camera I purchased with no manual or USB cord). In my frustration, I accidentally found out how to get my photos off the internal memory and onto my computer's hard drive.

Here are the steps I followed:

1. Ensure fresh batteries are inserted into your camera. You might lose data or get corrupted pictures if the camera dies while you're transferring pictures. Fresh batteries are important.

2. Insert memory card into the camera (where the batteries go) and close the lid.

3. Power camera on.

4. Press the Print/Review button (bottom button to the right of the LCD) once.

5. When you see the words "No Image!" appear, press the Menu/OK button.

6. A new menu will pop up, asking you COPY TO CARD -- use your buttons to highlight "Yes".

7. You will see your camera "Processing!" It will finish on its own, so do not interrupt the task.

8. Once it has finished "Processing!", remove memory card and insert into your computer's memory card reader to see and SAVE your pictures to your computer. Ensure all photos transferred properly before proceeding to Step 9.

9. With the memory card removed from the camera, power the camera back on and delete individual pictures, if you want to reserve internal memory for future emergency picture-taking situations (especially now that you know you can actually get the photos off of the camera's internal memory now!)

My camera will only take 6 pictures and then it comes up memory full

Seems like the camera used its limited internal memory so it only can save 6 pics. Insert a memory card with proper capacity into your camera so you'll get more space to save your picture.

Hope this help and RATE please !

My dsc-w80 keeps saving all of my pics to the internal memory

Set camera on playback mode, you will see any saved picture in internal memory. Insert memory card and lcd screen will show you either blue screen if memory card has no picture files or will show you picture in memory card. That means memory card is intact with camera and ready to store fresh picture.
Set camera to camera mode and take few fresh pictures and check them in playback mode.
Let me know if you have additional question.

Why does my kodak easyshare sayng internal memory full when I have A 1GB memory card in the camera & know that I have pictures still left on the memory card.

It sounds like it is not recognising the card is inserted - there is an icon on the LCD, if it is going to internal it is a picture of a camera, if it is internal memory, it is a box with an arrow.

Try taking the card out and in a few times - this can clean the contacts. Also try another card ( borrow one ? )

Also there is a setting on the camera SETUP to tell it where to save - make sure it is set to AUTO, best of luck.

Internal Memory is full

Your camera should automatically recognise when a memory card is inserted and store pictures on to that rather than use the internal memory. The internal memory is only used when no card is inserted so possibly there is a fault with the card connections if it does not recognise when it is inserted.
To clear the internal memory have a look at my post on my tips page on my profile dealing with this.

Pictures will not goto memory card. They only store to camera, therefore i can only take about 5-6 pictures?

Are the pictures stored in the memory important? Then go into the menu , scroll to "copy" and follow the instructions for copying from internal memory to card. Then, remove your card, bring up a picture from the internal memory and push the delete button...choose to delete all. Then, download any pics on your memory card to your computer using a card reader. Then, insert your card back into the camera, go into the menu, scroll to "format" and follow the on-screen instructions. After all this, you should be ok.

Saved images to the internal memory or to the optional xD-Picture Card

The internal memory and the xD-Picture Card cannot be used at the same time. When the card is inserted the internal memory is disabled. When you want to use the internal memory, remove the xD Picture Card. The LCD display will indicate that images are saved to internal memory by displaying [IN] in the lower right corner of the screen. When using the xD-Picture Card the camera’s LCD will display [xD] in the lower right corner of the screen. These indicators are displayed just above the number of available frames.
