Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 Digital Camera

1 Answer

I have a 1gb memory card with this camera but for some reason it only lets me take 9 - 13 photos before saying the memory is full - whereas my old camera, with the same memory card, would let me take 300+! Any idea why?

I don't believe your camera is writing to the card...it's probably just using the internal memory which is very small. Here's what you need to do. With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Then, insert your card and do the "format " thing again. This will erase the card so if you have any pics on it, download them first using a card reader if necessary.

My memory card is not being read in my samsung nv20 camera.. after taking 6 pictures the camera tells me that memory is full, i have tried taking the card out and back in again, but no luck, the card is a...


The NV20 is a 12MP camera, and can fill up a 1GB card fast, especially if you accidentally take a video (thinking it was a photo). Have you checked to make sure that all your photos are actually "photos" (i.e. not videos)? Other troubleshooting steps for memory card problems may be found here.

What setting should i have the camera on for normal photos, I have a 32 memory card, however after 10 photo's the camera tells me that the memory card is full.


A 32mb card is very small. If you are shooting at the full 8 megapixels, that's why your card is getting full. You should have at least a 1gb card.

The 1GB disk, only takesabout 22 pictures beforeit says the memory is full


Check the setting where the pictures are being stored. It may be still storing to the internal memory.

Also check what resolution you are capturing your snaps. Although 22 pictures should not fill your memory but high resolution photos can take 5-6 MB /photo, so you can accomodate about 180-200 photos in 1GB. Try reducing the photo resolution, if you are not planning to print them.

Also, have you downloaded all the previous snaps from the card and deleted it from the 1GB card?

Keep saying memory full and I have not used it yet


all cameras have a small internal memory, in your case three pictures, you need a memry card, your manual should tell you which type you need (although for polaroid, i think [but am not sure] thit it will be an SD card) you should probably get a 1-4 gb card, as this will let you take a few hundred photos, before you have to download them onto your computer

Camera saying memory full to a brand new memory card.


You may have a defective memory card. Have you tried it in a different device? Do you have a card reader on your printer or computer? If so, try inserting the card and see if your computer can read the card, and write files to the card.

Olympus SP-320 memory full when 1GB xD picure card in camara


If you download the photos that are on the internal memory to your computer, the next time you take photos it should go to the memory card that is loaded. It worked for me, so I hope that helps
