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! Thanks loads.

    Thanks loads for your help!  After reading more about it yesterday online, i tried re-formatting my cards- and the problem is gone!  Must have been that I'm using a new card-reader, and it's not really deleting the pics  So- while the old ones were gone- they weren't gone... anyhow- problem solved!  And thank goodness!!!

    I have different folders on my sd card. I originally had a Kodak so I have a couple of folders for the Kodak. Now I own a Canon and I have another couple of folders for the Canon. Took some pictures and now my "Memory is Full". Should I delete the Kodal Folders?



    Thank you,

    Jaye

Are you positive you're not shooting Raw+Jpeg? Or in Tiff mode? That's just... odd. Usually, the camera would stop exposing with any error that would effect image size.

I have a Toshiba 8 GIG memory card. I used it


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.

Format and Check SD card


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.

Cant review pics on camera or computer, but camera says card is full


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.

My Nikon D40X won't take pictures, only makes squishy sound


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.

Memory full


depends on the cam
and it is the size of the pic and the good the pic is
eg ;
2x4 - 2 gig = 150 pics
2x2 -2 gig = 500 pics

My hp photosmart M547 will not give me the 2000 pictures it can hold. It says that the memory is full after 10 pictures.


hi there
if it only holds 10 pics it is probably working off the 16meg internal memory and not your card which if it is a 6 gig will hold about 2000 medium res pics

hope this helps

Memory card


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.
Good Luck.
