If your memory stick is formatted into a specific (I think fat32 but don't quote me on that) format, usually it will reserve half as a mirror copy in case of failure you can retrieve your data. To format it, go into my computer, right click on your memory card and hit format, uncheck Quick format and select the file format of your choice.

Try to format the drive from your computer, instead of just erasing it. Also, memory cards do go bad too.....some times quite easily.

The good news is they are VERY inexpensive now of days if you do need to replace it.

I'm using a Sandisk 1gig Memory Stick, but suddenly it has far less than 1gig to give. I mainly use this stick for my Sony Playstation Portable (PSP) for save files or such. Right now it has one 341.6mb...


because it requires that much space to write files to boot the games

if i were you, i'd save the games on your hard disk and format the 1G memory stock -- buy a larger capacity , such as 4G or 8G

please leave me positive feedback

Can't get game to save


have you tried formatting the memory stick. go to settings>system settings>format memory stick this helps about 7/10 saving file problems. my experience has been that you get a better format if you have your psp connected to your pc and format it that way. this could have been a problem with your existing memory stick but i don't know why it did it to the new one... hmmm

Nothing on memory 2GB memory stick but only 333+MB available, why?


there could be corrupted file inside your memory stick. it would be best to reformat the memory and check once again if you will get a 2GB free space.

No memory space, in an empty memory stick..


Go into settings and find the option to "Format" your memory card. If you cannot find it by scrolling through, look in the table of contents in the users manual - look for "format..." if nothing under format, look under "memory stick" and if it doesn't list a sub-topic of format with page # there, just go to the page it lists for memory stick, and go page by page until you find instructions on how to format.
I did a quick search of Kodak's web site and it looks like they don't have a manual posted for your model, or I'd have just copied and pasted instruction specific to your model.

This sometimes happens if you delete the folders on the memory stick or card, other times they can be corrupted temporarily or permanently by inserting/removing the memory while the camera is on. Sometimes you can do that w/o any probs 999 times, and it's only that 1000th time that messes it up. Safest to always power down camera before inserting/removing memory.
If this doesn't work, post again.
There are other things to try if that doesn't fix it, but 99% chance it will.

Pc beeps five times when swtched on


PC beeps are usually memory-related problems. make sure you are using the right memory for your computer. the specs should be a DDR2 DIMM 240 pin PC2-3200. what specs do you have?
also do you have two 1G memory sticks or just one 2G memory stick? it may be that your computer doesn't accept a 2G memory stick but rather 1G memory sticks. good luck.
