Question about Samsung Digital Cameras

1 Answer

I recently bought the camera and was able to take 45 pictures without a memory card. I then put a memory card in from my phone and it allowed me to take pictures. However, once I took the card out and put it back into the camera, it now comes up card locked and can only take 3 pictures without it, even though I've deleted everything off it!

Be sure that the Lock switch on the memory card in your camera is set to unlock. If it is unlocked then try and see if you can reformat the card with the camera.

Card error or camra on or of problem


If the camera was working properly while taking the pictures on this card then the problem lies with the card. Format the memory card, formatting the memory card cleans previously taken pictures and allows for new pictures to be made. Even if you are using a "new" card it needs to be formatted to the camera it's being used in. Your camera dates back to 2004 so a problem I recently ran into with my own camera was I needed to update the "firmware" when I tried to use a memory card larger then 2gig. If you have just purchase a new card and it is larger then what you have been using this might be the case as well. The card error message may also be caused by removing the memory card from the computer without "ejecting" or "safely remove" which shuts off the connection to the card then disconnect. Another reason is if the user constantly deletes pictures and doesn't format.
Hope this was helpful not not confusing.

Memory card saying "full" when its not


Your problem is that you are using an incompatible type of memory card.

Your camera was designed to use SD cards with a maximum capacity of 2GB. It cannot use larger capacity models, and is also incompatible with the later SDHC cards.

SDHC cards are the same shape and will fit your camera, but have differences beneath the skin and so won't work properly in your camera. Without any memory card in place your camera uses internal memory; it's then only by lucky chance that your camera has sufficient SDHC compatibility to allow you to transfer the internal memory image to the SDHC card when you subsequently insert it into your camera.

Your only solutions are to either use an SD card with a maximum capacity of 2GB or to replace the camera with a later model which is fully SDHC compliant.

Just bought it from Argos. Not installed a memory card but the Internal memory shows "Memory Full" sign after taking 1 picture. Additionally, the Available number of shots left is just 1 instead of at...


Almost all modern digital cameras have little if any internal memory. That which they do have is usually only their to be able to demonstrate the camera's features to customers trying them out in shops, etc. It is standard practice to use removable memory cards as this allows easy transfer to computers, printers and digital picture-frames. Also if you were going away on holiday and fill the memory it is simple to replace the memory card with a fresh blank one and carry on taking snaps.
I recommend you get a 2GB 'SD' memory card to start you off. They are very cheap these days compared to recent years.

Memory card fault or camera fault?


When the camera writes the image files to the memory card, it also creates index/information files. Without those files the camera will not display the images.

Check the software you used to upload the images with. There's probably a checkbox or option that tells it to delete the images from the card after uploading them.
