Camera says Memory CARD FULL--but it's empty

This is most frustrating.  I downloaded all photos to leave a clean card, then went to use the camera again and got the CARD FULL message, which is totally untrue.  I put in another empty memory card and got the same message. 
HELP!
Thanks, Sam

    I've formatted the memory card (using the camera) and yet when I try to take a picture it says the card is full. Any solutions?

Olympus cameras are a bit picky! If you have not already tried then format the card on the camera. This is more reliable than formatting the card on a PC.

Downloading the pictures from your camera does not erase them from the card. It only copies them to your PC

Hope this helps

Memory card is full and when I plug in the USB cord and turn on the camera I get a message that my device is not connected or is busy, or that it contains no pictures!!


Causes of memory card corruption
  • Turning off a camera before an image is completely written to the memory card.
  • Removing the memory card from a camera while an image is being written to the card.
  • Removing the card from a memory card reader while files are still being transferred to a computer.
  • Batteries conking out as files are being transfered directly from the camera to a computer. Note: always make sure you have fully charged batteries before transferring images.
  • Removing the card from a card reader while folders and files from the card are open on a computer.
  • Opening, deleting, renaming or moving files on the card while its contents are open on a computer.
  • Using a memory card which has not been formatted in the camera. Use the delete/erase function when needed, however a card should be regularly formatted.
  • Formatting a card in a computer instead of the camera.
  • Inserting a second memory card into a card reader before closing and removing the first when viewing images on the card from a computer.
  • Taking photos when camera batteries are nearly empty.
  • Taking photos too rapidly so the camera can not complete writing one image before starting the next.
  • Continually shooting and deleting, shooting and deleting images when the card is full.
  • Letting a memory card get too full before downloading the images to a computer or storage device. Cards that are too full may overwrite the card headers.
  • Using a memory card from one camera in a different camera without formatting it in the new camera first.

CAMERA SAYS INTERNAL MEMORY FULL. I PUT NEW CARD IN. STILL SAYS INTERNAL MEMORY FULL


The internal memory is the memory built into the camera, not the memory you put in with a memory card. This internal memory is rather small. If it is completely full, it will stop your camera working even with an empty memory card.

Take the card out of the camera, and delete some of the photos on the internal memory before you put it back in.

The memory card is full, it says, and I want to know if it can be removed to insert another, empty one, and how to do it. My computer is not running the XP system so I cannot download them. thank you


Just turn off the camera, remove the full card, and insert the empty card. For best results, format each card before use.

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. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

Screen says internal memory is full. how do you clear the internal memory


Hi there internal memory means inbuilt memory. When you click the snap all photos are save in your camera internal memory. I hope you use external memory card. Go in settings and select the memory card( external) for further snaps. Then the message did not come again until full the memory card. And if you want to clear the internal memory card then connect your camera with your PC then copy the all photos from the camera & paste in computer. After that go inside the internal memory of camera via computer & delete them. Then your camera in build memory card will empty. I hope you understand . If you have any question then ask me. Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

Internal Memory full; No memory card in; Will not take pictures;


You need to get a memory card and promise to never use the internal memory again....it only causes problems as you have found out. When you get the new card follow this procedure: 1. With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" and follow the on-screen instructions to format the internal memory. 2. Insert the new card and do the format thing again to prepare the new card. Happy photography!

Camera not responding


Downloading the pictures is not the same as emptying the memory card. After download you will usually get a prompt to clear memory card click yes or format the card while in the camera.
