1 gig memory card reads "full" after just 21 pics?!!!?
Hi- i don't know what's happened- but this camera is my livelihood- and this morning it's totally gone to pieces...
So basically, I have it set to 'norm' quality, 'large' image size, nothing weird about the setting at all... Anyhow, this morning, I stick a 1gig card in it, and after 20 shots, it tells me the card is full... So, thinking it was the card, i stuck another in- and i end up with the same problem!!!!
PLEASE help!! Has anyone ever had this problem before?!!? I could really use some advice!

buy an sd micro memory card and use the external memory instead .. camera internal mems are only made to hold around ten pictures were as an 2 gig mem card will hold around 2000 pics and there very cheap about $ 25
When you removed the card from the computer, did you remember to use the "safely remove hardware" procedure? Also, you should never wait until your card is full before downloading...you run the risk of the card becoming corrupted. Your options now...1. Get a separate card reader and see if you can download your pics with it.2. If not, take the card to a store like Walmart that has a Kodak Picture kiosk machine. Insert your card and you should be able to see all your pics. From there, you can make a cd of them. Then, format your card in your camera to return it to factory specs.
it can except up to a 16GB SDHC high speed card. I have an 8 GIG in my camera and I have yet to fill it with hundreds of pics at 10.3 megapixel's and 37min of full 720 HD video I hope this helps good luck
Purchase an inexpensive card reader such as the Ativa, available at Staples and Office Depot for $9.95. Put your memory card with the photos on it into the reader and plug it into a USB port on your computer. Windows will recognize it as another drive and assign it a drive letter. Using any graphics program, or Windows Explorer, navigate to that drive, open the file containing the pics, click select all, and copy the pics to a file on your computer. Make sure that all the pics have transferred or copied to the new file. Replace the card back into your camera and format the card so it is empty and ready to receive new pics. FYI: Less than 1 gig memory cards are available on ebay for dirt prices. Also, go to the camera manufacturers website and see if they have a firmware update for your camera that allows larger than 1 gig cards to be used. I had to do that for my Fuji S700 so I could use 4 gig cards. It used to max out at 2 gigs. If this has solved your problem please rate it accordingly. Good luck.
This occassionally happens with memory cards formatted using FAT. The simplest way for you to get the pics of the card when such a thing happens is to get a card reader. Pop the card in to the card reader, connect it to your PC and transfer the pics. Then format it using FAT32. I have noticed that my card was a lot more reliable in saving pics compared to FAT.
take the batteries out of the camera and the memory card..verify that the memory cards are good by trying them in a printer or another cam.. other thing is you might not be in picture taking mode..you might be in the settings mode..check the user manual if you don't know if you are.
Did you just buy this card or have you had it working for a while and now this is happening?
From everything i have read about your camera, they won't take a 2 Gig card. A 1 GIG card is the biggest that is compatible with this camera. If the card is new i would take it back to the store and see if they will let you exchange it for a 1 GIG card.
If this just started happening after using it for a while -- it could be a problem with the card or the camera. Try putting in a different card and see if it will let you format that one. If it does you know for sure the problem is with the card. If you keep getting the same message no matter what card you use, i would phone Kodak. But, according to Kodaks own site, 1 GIG is the biggest card that is compatible. Sorry I couldn't be more help.
