    SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

    Does that help?

Check thath the pictures are not 'protected' and the card is not in 'lock'-position. If you're not able to delete the pictures in the camera, use a card reader and delete them in the computer. You can also 'move' the pictures during download instead of just 'copy' them. This will clear the card. Also formatting the card will erase any files on the card.

Canon g12 is deleting my pics


If it's not deleting all your photos you may have a setting in your menu features that allow you to overwrite earlier photos if your card gets full.

Memoyfull how do i empty it


You should have a pic review when the canera is powered on. Some cameras have a review only power switch that allows the screen to view pic s but not turn on the camera. there should be a delete button that once you are reviewing your photos you can delet one at a time or it will say "delete all" click delete all and enter to delete all. if you can find no review or delete buttons they will be in the main menu. Good luck!!

Memory full


Is this on the card, or internal memory?
If it is the card, then reformat it. That should solve the problem.

Can't download pics from sd to camera


Goto any radio shack and get a external memory card reader this will allow you to get your pictures if the camera or cable is defective.

Delete All?


There are three buttons on the top of your camera. When viewing pics, however, you can press the O.K. button and this will access the menu automatically. There you will see delete this pic, delete all or save/move, ect. Thanks for using Fixya and I hope you'll let us know if this helps. Any added comments would be appreciated to allow us to continue serving your needs.

Unable to view pics


Copy the existing photos on to your PC, switch off the camera. Remove the SD card and format the SD-card using a SD-card reader, this will clear all the card contents. Now try using it in your Camera again. Ideally, you should be able to save photos on this SD card. Other way would be to insert another SD card into your camera and click photos and check whether those photos are being saved into the SD card(this can be done using display option in your digicam.)

Not able to 'delete' a picture from my Lumix TZ3


Sounds like a MobileMate quirk Tanya. Use your USB cable connection to your PC/Camera interface and delete pics that way too see if this funny goes away.

If it does, and I believe it will, then it is a SanDisk issue not revising the File Allocation Table(FAT) after deleting the Pic File on the mem card.

You could also find out if this is just an SDHC SD card reader issue by using an older less dense standard 1 or 2Meg non-SDHC mem card in the reader and see if issue goes away.

The fallback of course to view and delete the pics on the camera before download, or download pics then note which pic file numbers you want deleted after viewing on PC, then put SD card back in camera and delete them there.

Another option for trial, is to cut and paste the whole DCIM folder, or sub pic folder to your PC from off the SD card using the card reader. The camera automatically generates subfolders under the DCIM folder if you completely remove(deleting by a cut or move), when you take your first picture on a camera with a DCIM but not sub pic folder. Try this first and I think you will find all pics will be deleted from camera that are in a subfolder under DCIM. If not, then cut or move the whole DCIM folder and create a new DCIM(empty) folder on the SD card using the PC and card reader. Of course using this method you cannot selective delete individual pics from the mem card. You would be deleting them all after the Folder cut or move from the SD card.

Memeory card full wont allow to take photos


You will have to transfer the pics on the card to some other storage device (maybe PC) and delete them on the card to free up space.
