The problem may be that you have "locked" your memory, there is a little switch on the memory card you pull it up or down, up for lock, down for unlocking..  or the problem might be with your card reader..

What do you do when camera says internal memory filled.


Digital cameras store pictures on their internal memory. Often users transfer their photographs to memory cards, because memory cards store more data and are accessible in computers, other digital cameras and other devices. When you want to move pictures stored on the internal memory card, do so through the camera's menu
1 Place the memory card into the digital camera.
2 Turn on the digital camera.
3 Access the digital camera's menu. Digital cameras have a button labeled "Menu" near the LCD screen. Push this button to open the menu.
4 Select the Pictures option. Select the photos on your internal memory using the "Select" or "OK" button on the arrow pad on the back of the camera. Click "Copy" and choose "Memory Card" to copy the files to the memory card. If there is more than one picture that needs copying to the memory card, perform this step for each picture.

Have a good day! Smile : )

Not able to download disk on to comp


Do you mean you have connected your camera to the computer with the USB cable, but the photographs can't be transferred to the computer?
Then try one of the following solutions:

1) Go to My Computer > Select the photo camera device > Right click > Explore > Copy all files (photographs) as from any normal folder.
2) Take out your SD memory card, put it the USB card reader: http://www.amazon.com/b?ie=UTF8&node=516872 If you have a modern laptop - it will have a special card reader slot. Go to My Computer > Select the SD card > Right click > Explore > Copy all files (photographs) as from any normal folder.
3) Try Picasa (picasa.google.com), install, run and go to File > Import to get pictures with this program.

HOW DO I WORK A DIGITAL CAMERA?


STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS FOR OPERATING YOUR FIRST DIGITAL CAMERA
1. READ YOUR CAMERA MANUAL before taking any photographs.
2. Check your batteries. Make sure to either recharge or replace them if you haven't used your camera as yet or for an extended period.
3. Insert your storage media card in the appropriate slot. If you forget to insert your media card, you'll get a "No Card" message.
4. Remove the lens cap.
5. Turn the camera on by either an on-off switch or a sliding lens cover.
6. Turn off the LCD. (See your camera manual for instructions)
7. Make sure your camera is set for automatic mode. Set the image quality to the size image desired-HQ (high quality) or less (to take more pictures on the same card).
8. Bring the camera up to your eye and look through the viewfinder. Positioning the target mark in the center of the viewfinder on your subject will assure that it will be in focus.
9. Push the zoom lever toward W (wide angle) to shoot wide-angle shots or push it toward the T (telephoto) to zoom in.
10. Press the shutter button half way down gently and confirm that the green light next to the viewfinder is illuminated.
11. Press the shutter button all the way down. You'll hear a beep when you take a picture. Wait until the green light stops flashing before taking another one. Remember, digital cameras have a slight delay that traditional cameras don't since it takes a second to save the image to your camera's storage media card.
12. Turn off the camera. Your new photograph should appear on your camera's LCD screen.
TIPS:
1. Use the viewfinder to compose your photograph, not the LCD screen, which will severely drain your battery power. Use your LCD screen only when shooting close-up photographs.
2. Hold your camera steady. Sometimes, the least amount of movement will cause your photo to be slightly blurred. Purchase a very small tripod so that you can provide extra stability for your camera. Also, if there isn't enough light (indoors or outdoors), make sure to use your camera's flash.
3. Experiment with your camera's features and take notes so that you can learn what works for you. Do this before you plan to use it for an important family event or trip.

My camera gets horizontal coloured lines on the lcd screen sometimes and at the same time it appears on the photograph as well.what to do?


Two things can cause this problem.

1. shooting into sunlight
2. dirty connector at the memory card (memory stick pro duo or equivalent).- remove memory card and blow out with compressed air and inspect metallic connections on the card.

Camera not properly reading memory card


The problem stems from deleting some of the images from the PC. You need to copy all the files onto the PC, and delete all of them from the card on the camera. Then reformat the card on the camera. Then take 1 picture on the camera.

After you have just 1 new photo on the card, try copying the older files back onto the card in the same directory as the 1 new photo. This may work.

If it doesn't work, the problem may be with missing hidden thumbnail files. In that case you may not be able to get the photos to display on the camera again.

D80 ERR & CHR message


Hello Michaela1,

There are a few things I can recommend:

1. Please check your card on some other camera to make sure the media is alright.

2. I am not sure if you take the SD card out of the camera and put it into a card reader (stand alone, in your laptop/PC) to read the images. As I understand, you first took out the card and then put it back into the camera to read from the camera once it did not work in the card reader. However, there are issues with doing both. I will outline them below.
  • Card Reader: At times, reading a card in a card reader will mess it up and it will remain unusable in the camera even if it displays photographs on camera LCD. Please note, this will happen even if you have only viewed the photographs on your computer and not saved them to your hard drive/media. The card will most definitely not work in camera if you delete photographs from the card or edit them on the card. The only solution to this is to format that card IN the Camera. The manual has instructions for the same.
  • In Camera: Other times, you may have connected the camera through the USB cable to a computer with the card in the camera. This problem may crop up IF you used your computer to delete images from the card whilst it was IN the camera. Again, the solution is to format the card. IN the camera, not from the PC.
3. Whether you use the USB cable or take out the card and put it into a card reader to save your photographs, always repeat ALWAYS format your card in the camera after transferring your photographs. This ensures card will not malfunction unless the media is corrupt. This also has the added benefit of not having the same photographs a few times over.

4. Try not to leave your images in the card after taking photographs. Try to save them to your PC at the earliest opportunity. Format after-wards (I can not repeat this point enough).

5. Use multiple cards of smaller capacity. They are cheaper to buy. Even if you lose one card to a mal-function, you still have photographs on others.

I hope this helps.
