Question about Cameras

1 Answer

After I take 20 pictures, the camera tell me I have used up my internal memory, but why can I not use my memory 256 card. I just bought a new card because I thought the other one was worn out, but it will not work with this new card. Every time I take my 20 pictures, I have to download on my computer and delete so I can take more pictures. It has not always been this way. I have had my camera for about three years. The number on the back of my camera is: KCXJB8-1900324. It is a 120/5x Z00M

Hi.

Most cameras have a setting to select between internal memory and memory card. Detais on how to access the menu depend on camera make and model.
The camera may go automatically into internal memory save mode if no card or an invalid card is in the slot.

You should try purchasing a new card that is compatible with the camera. Most caeras that were sold with 256MB cards do not accept cards bigger than 2GB (even 1GB in some case).

The best thing to do is going to a camera shop and purchasing a card that is compatible with your camera. If you take the camera along with you they will also be able to test the card and set the camera for the card. This is usually done free of charge.

Regarding the model, info provided were serial number and zoom size, that is not enough for me to find out the model. I need manufacturer, and model name or number.

Regards.

Ginko.

    Hi.

    The biggest card supported by this camera is 2GB. The camera does not support cards bigger than 2GB.


  • elsalightsey Jun 07, 2010

    I will try a 2GB, but tell me, why did my camera accept 256 for a least two years?

    Hi.

    I forgot to mention that you also have to check card and memory settings.

    Go to setup menu and check settings for Image storage. see page 31 (37 in pdf) in the manual available clicking here.



    256MB is surely compatible with the camera. If the card is not accepted, there may be a problem with the card or camera settings.

Depends on the size of the images - if you are using best quality and large size, the number of images will decrease accordingly. Look in the manual for the correlation. BTW, the internal memory and the SD card are not the same thing.

It keeps saying memory card is full. Bought a new memory card and put in and it still says the card is full.


Are you sure that isn't "internal" memory card is full message?

Sometimes, when "internal memory card is full" there is no more space in the camera's internal memory. Your camera has 16 MB of internal memory. The number of pictures you can store depends on the picture size setting you have selected on your camera. Keep in mind that the camera always uses internal memory, even if a card is installed (auto default).

If really, the problem is in the "SD memory card", I suggest make some backup all files and reformat the SD. Try formatting it in the camera, there should be a process in your owners manual for doing this; donw formatted SD in your computer, isn't good.

Hope helps.

Just bought praktica dpix 810z I do not understand 32mb memory internal also sdcard compatable these items are written on the box are they in the camera if so how do I tell ?


It means the camera has a 32mb capacity internal memory. This allows you to take pictures with no card in the camera. You won't be able to take very many pictures and most people have trouble with the internal memory once they start to use it. I recommend you don't. Instead, buy an SD memory card. The owner's manual should tell you the maximum size your camera will allow.

Recently purchased Sony Cybershot DSCW180. Took 3


Yes, you need to have memory stick because camera has limited internal memory that can store few pictures only.
Put new memory card, format it through camera Menu and copy internal memory pictures to memory stick, take our memory card from camera and delete internal memory pictures either one by one or format internal memory through camera Menu.
Thanks.

New memory card.


See if there is a copy feature in menus where you can internally copy from internal memory to card-kodaks and some other manufs offer this feature-i would offload internal pics w/usb to computer and then just start using new card-get a memory card reader also and you can put from comp back to memory card w/reader-no need normally to format new memory card-just don't format internal or you will lose pics

Memory card


If the card has not been formatted to remove data, it may have info that is not compatible between your old and new cameras.

If you have a USB card reader, place the card in it and re-format it.

If that doesn't work, then the card may be faulty.

Cannot access pics


Once you took pictures without a memory card, all pictures taken will automatically be saved on the INTERNAL MEMORY of the camera.
When taking pictures with a memory card, all pictures are just saved on the memory card itself.
If you are seeing 100-757 on the LCD screen. It means that there are already 757 pictures taken from the first time you've used the camera.
It is possible that some of the pictures are in the internal memory and some are in the memory card.

STEPS to DOUBLE CHECK:
1) Remove memory card out of the camera
- Turn on camera
- View pictures on the internal memory
by just pressing on the PLAY mode button
(lowest of the 3 little buttons)
- Pictures seen are just the ones saved on the internal memory

2) Return memory card back in the camera
- Turn on camera
- View pictures on the internal memory
by just pressing on the PLAY mode button (
lowest of the 3 little buttons)
- Pictures seen are just the ones saved on the memory card itself

*** If you want to transfer pictures on the internal memory of the camera to your MEMORY CARD, you just have to follow the steps below:
- Make sure there is a memory card inside the camera
- Turn on camera
- Press on PLAY mode button to view pictures
- Press MENU/OK button
- Keep scrolling to the right until you see COPY TO CARD
- Select YES using the arrow keys
- Press MENU/OK to confirm
* When you've done these steps, all pictures from the INTERNAL MEMORY of the camera will be copied to your MEMORY CARD but it depends on the space left on your memory card

** If still, you could not view the pictures, it's possible that the pictures are really gone when you have transferred the previous pictures to your computer.

** Once you have transferred pictures to your PC, and you have deleted those on your camera, the FILE NAME of the pictures will not start from 100-001 again unless you have reset the file name on the settings of your camera.

In example, i already have 256 pictures on my camera so the filename reads 100-256 for the last picture taken. And then i decided to transfer those 256 pictures to my PC and i deleted those immediately after being transferred. So, as i took another picture, FILENAME will start with 100-257 if i have not reset
the FILE NAME settings to 100-001.

Hope i've helped you enough.
