Chances are its the size of the pictures the camera is set to take,you will have to make them smaller, and lower quality to raise the amount of pictures you can take.The instructions on how to do that should be in the manual, or you can try the 1 i found on their site.


Changing the Resolution and Compression
1. With the camera power on, press the <FUNC./SET> button.

Memory Card - 070.gif 2. In the Function menu select L* or 295.gifusing the 021.gifor 026.gif button.
a550rescomp.gif * The current setting is displayed.
3. Select the resolution or compression you wish to seMemory Card - 028.gif the 0Memory Card - 023.gif class=or 023.gif button.
You can shoot the image right after selecting settings by pressing the shutter button. This screen will appear again, once the image is shot.
6. Press the <FUNC./SET> button.
7. Shoot the image.


i hope that helps,later you might want to invest in a bigger memory card, 16mb is very small.Id go for a 512mb or a 1gb SD memory card ,then you'll be able to take more larger quality pictures.

As soon as i take 1 pic my memory is full i have no memory card in is that y and shouldnt camera hold more then 1 picture


No the internal memory is tiny and if you have a high quality picture setting it will easily fill it up. Buy a 16GB SDHC memory card on eBay, they are ridiculously cheap.

I have a Casio Exilim. I take only 4 pictures and it says memory is full. It has no memory card in it. Is it possible that it only holds 4 pictures and I need a memory card?


Depending on the image resolution and quality the camera may hold anywhere from 2 to 69 pictures. Obviously smaller pictures take less space and thus you can fit more of them in. However, why buy a 6megapixel camera only to take pictures 2megapixels or smaller? The table on page 249 of the manual gives estimates for the various resolution and quality settings.

You're MUCH better off using a memory card. Even a 2GB memory card should let you take about 500 pictures, and the card can be reused after you download the pictures to your computer.

My SD600 states memory card full when I use the original SD 16M card. There are 6 pictures on it and will not take more. What settings should I use to correct that issue?


The original card that came with your camera was very low capacity. As you've discovered, it can only hold a few pictures, and was only included with the camera to show that the camera works. You really should purchase a new SD memory card. These are very inexpensive (here's some from Amazon) and will literally hold hundreds of pictures. BUT make sure that you purchase a 2GB or small SD card, and NOT a 4GB or larger SDHC card. Newer SDHC cards were designed after your camera, and although they look exactly the same, they will not work with your camera.

I have a PowerShot A590 IS. I did try to format the memory card. I can take 7 pictures, then it says the memory card is full. How do I change the setting so I can take lots of pictures?


Are you sure it's saying the memory card is full? It may be telling you the internal memory of the camera is full. It's very small and only holds about 7 pictures.

My Fujifilm FinePix F20 camera keeps giving the Memory Full warning with less than 50 pictures on it. This is with the XD card. It used to hold nearly 300 pictures. The card and camera memory have been...


My guess is that you used to take pictures at a lower resolution than you are now doing. High resolution pictures take more storage space than lower resolution ones.

How do i empty my memory coming up memory full even though only 6 pictures on


the camera is meant to be used with a SD memory card - the internal memory is very small and probably will only hold 5-10 pictures. empty it just by deleting the pictures. memory cards are cheap and available everywhere. good luck!

My camera and memory card aren't holding very many pics


need more info but usually ir means the memory is full . or the memory card is corrupt. i suggest saving all the pics to your computer then try reformatting the memory card. you can usually do this from the camera itself. you will have to go thru the cameras menu and pick delete all pics and format card.
also check what pixel setting you are using. the higer the pixel setting the lass pics the memory will hold.
however lowering the pixel rating also reduce the quality of the pictures. hope this helps .

I have formatted and have bought a new memory card but it will only take 6 pictures and says that the memory is full


Make sure you are saving your pictures to the card, not the internal memory Next, make sure you have alarge enough card to hold a good amount of pictures. Next, set your picture size to something lower. Pictures can take as much as 6MB eack or as little as 1/4 MB each.

My hp photosmart M547 will not give me the 2000 pictures it can hold. It says that the memory is full after 10 pictures.


hi there
if it only holds 10 pics it is probably working off the 16meg internal memory and not your card which if it is a 6 gig will hold about 2000 medium res pics

hope this helps

Internal memory card full


You are using built in internal memory (11Mb).

One of these must help:
*Check memory card.
*Check picture saving settings.
*Reset to factory defaults.
