Try another card. They can go bad. Check the contacts on the card for dirt or oils. If they are dirty, the camera's contacts will be dirty too.

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

Downloaded photos onto computer but memory card still shows memory card full.


Downloading pictures copies them to the computer but does not delete them from the memory card. This allows you to download them to another computer, or redo the download if some error occurs.

The best way to erase the pictures from the card is to format it. Since you didn't specify the make and model of your camera, I can't tell you exactly how to do that: it's probably in the Setup menu.

After slideshow memory stick is missing photos (not on computer)


If you put the memory stick back into the camera can you see them thru the camera menu? If so your computer's SD card port may be having issues. try using the card in another computer or use the cameras USB cable to transfer the pictures from the camera to the computer if it has one. Do other memory sticks work in the computer ok? If you cannot see them in the camera either then the pictures will be corrupted and probably cannot be recovered. Then the card will need to be formatted to erase any errors on the card. Always use the camera to format a card whenever possible...Hope that helps.

Xd memory card


A card access error may indicate that an xD-Picture Card memory card is in a write-protected condition. xD-Picture Card memory cards have a special protection feature to ensure that your pictures are kept safe. NOTE: During this condition, you can still use the printer for printing and saving photos from the xD-Picture Card to a secure location, such as the computer hard drive. To resolve this error, try the following:
  • Reinsert the xD-Picture Card memory card into your camera and turn on the camera. In most cases, the camera automatically makes the necessary changes.
  • Reformat the xD-Picture Card memory card. See the documentation that came with your camera for instructions on reformatting the memory card. Note that this process erases the pictures currently saved to your memory card. To save these pictures, transfer them to the computer before reformatting the memory card. Once you reformat the memory card, transfer those photos back to the memory card using the computer.

Check memory card from computer with card reader.
If that doesn`t help.
Try formatting memory card from camera or from computer (it will destroy data on card).
Most likely your pictures are alredy lost.

Screen shows full memory card


It's quite possible that it's actually taking photos and storing them to the camera's onboard memory and not the memory card, explaining why it gets full so quickly with two pictures and why you can only delete two pictures. Look for a setting to change the storage to the memory card.
