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!

what format is the sd card in ? most common is the sd card its self I have had loads that have just packed in and just keep asking for it to be re formatted. also some cameras will take the card and load pic's onto it but its in the wrong format as the cad is in exfat file and not in fat32. some laptops don't read exfat and you need to update so it can read it.
Your memory card may think it's full if you've been deleting pics from it when it's in your PC and not in the camera.
If you've offloaded all the pics you want to from your memory card, put
it back in your camera and "reformat" the card - there should be
instructions how to do this in your camera manual. (If you've misplaced
your manual you can likely find an online version on the website of your
camera manufacturer). Hopefully this will fix your problem.
From now on, (even if you have to buy a new memory card), don't do any
editing or deleting of pics directly on the memory media while it is in
your PC (or Mac). Offload your pics to a file of their own on the PC
(you can edit pics from that file). Then put the memory card back into
the camera, verify that you did indeed successfully offload the pics to
the PC (with the media card out of the PC), then delete the pics from
the card while it's in the camera.
Reformat the memory card periodically (in the camera) after you've
offloaded your pics (reformatting will erase all pics so you've gotta be
sure you captured them elsewhere) to maintain the 'health' & full
functionality of your memory card.
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
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.
