Hi,

Check to see if the lock tab has been put in the lock position. If yes then slide to the unlock position.

Why am I getting a "memory full" error when my memory card is not full?


Try formatting the card with the camera menu. This is always safer when you buy a new card. If that doesn't work take the card back

Take the memory card out of your camera and look at it. 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.

Just put a new memory card in the camera but the screen keeps showing internal memory is full


How to switch the camera over to saving pictures directly onto the SD card.
    1. Menu
    2. Cam settings
    3. Chose AUTO or SD card option and Press OK
Note: If the SD card isn't in the camera or is unreadable the camera will automatically go back to saving you taken pictures on the internal memory.

If you still experience problems:
The lever on your SD card might be turned the wrong way so the SD card is reading protective.
Please turn the lever and try again.

The SD card might not be supported by the model: Your camera Memory card support is SD/MMC up to 1 Gigabyte

The SD card might not be faulty, try another card, since the camera could give you a message like the one you're experiencing.
Try with a different SD card that is supported by the camera.
    After you having successfully switched over to saving onto the SD card. I would guess that you would like to transferre the pictures from your internal memory over to the SD card.:

    Some how when then memorie card is in it it wont allow me to take pictures or anything it like i accidentally pressed a button wrong or a combination of buttons my son may have done it PLEASE HELP!!


    Please remove the memory card and try to take a picture...
    If the camera works then the memory card "Write Protect" slider switch is set to "Lock" or the memory card is bad.
    Please let us know what you find...

    Screen is saying Memory card is protected (reset switch on memory card) and it won't take pictures.


    if you have tried to set the switch to unlocke on your SD card, and still have this problem, you may need to open your camera to check the SD card slot.
    this tips might help:

    Xd memory card


    A card access error may indicate that an xD-Picture Card memory card is in a write-protected condition. xD-Picture Card memory cards have a special protection feature to ensure that your pictures are kept safe. NOTE: During this condition, you can still use the printer for printing and saving photos from the xD-Picture Card to a secure location, such as the computer hard drive. To resolve this error, try the following:
    • Reinsert the xD-Picture Card memory card into your camera and turn on the camera. In most cases, the camera automatically makes the necessary changes.
    • Reformat the xD-Picture Card memory card. See the documentation that came with your camera for instructions on reformatting the memory card. Note that this process erases the pictures currently saved to your memory card. To save these pictures, transfer them to the computer before reformatting the memory card. Once you reformat the memory card, transfer those photos back to the memory card using the computer.
