Camera won't recognize internal memory

My camera works fine with the memory card inserted, but without it, I get an internal memory error. It won't let me reformat either.

Pictures show up on memory card in camera, but computer won't recognize the card - either inserted directly or by USB


ALTERNATE WAY TO TRANSFER PHOTOS TO COMPUTER
If your photos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.

Camera says out of memory won't let me take pictures. i cleared all the pictures out and still cant take pictures. What do you think the problem is?


I'm assuming you are trying to use an SD card in your camera and not the internal memory. I suggest you format the memory card if you are sure there is nothing on the card. Formatting the memory card deletes everything on the card and sets it up with a file system that your camera recognizes. Follow these steps to format your memory card using your camera. 1. Turn camera off 2. Insert memory card 3. Turn camera on 4. When the memory card is inserted in the camera, the [Format card] option appears in the setup menu 5. Choose Format to format the entire card. Don't choose Quick Format 6. Wait until your card is formatted
After formatting your memory card, try turning your camera off and on and you should now be able to take pictures to your memory card.
P.S. If you remove your memory card you can choose Format Memory from the setup menu to format the camera's built-in internal memory

When memory card is inserted camera remains in the internal memory mode and will not recognize card.


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 it should work properly.

I purchased a Sony cybershot DSC- S930 and inserted the Lexar memory stick (supposedly compatible with a sony camera) and upon turning the camera on there is an error message stating there is not internal...


Hello,
The camera does not recognize the card because

1. Card not compatible
2. Camera cannot handle such a large capacity.
3.Card not inserted correctly.
Maybe a recent firmware update can address the 2nd limitation.

Hope it helps.

Internal memory to memory card


Generally, it's not possible to move images from internal memory to a memory card, which poses a problem because you can't connect that camera to your computer.

Most digital cameras keep the internal memory separate from the memory card. Not sure why, but they do.

It's unlikely that you'll be able to get those photos off, if the camera isn't recognized by the computer.

Memory card is in camera(kodak c613) Camera


Make sure the card is fully pushed in; otherwise it could be the reader.
You could try to insert the card into an external card reader connected to a PC.
If it is recognized by windows, click "format".
If that works put the card back into the camera.
If it is now recognized, go to "menu" and format again with the camera.
If the card is not recognized, your internal card reader seems to be faulty.

Screen displaying "out of memory"


OK, FIRST OFF THE CARD YOU BOUGHT, IS IT COMPATIBLE WITH YOUR CAMERA? IT'S NOT AN SDHC, IS IT? ALSO, DID YOU FORMAT THE CARD? THESE ARE POSSIBLE REASONS YOUR CAMERA IS NOT RECOGNIZING THE 8GB MEMORY. IF YOU FORMATTED IT ON YOUR COMPUTER IT PROBABLY WON'T WORK IN YOUR CAMERA. YOU NEED TO FORMAT IT IN YOUR CAMERA TO HAVE IT BE RECOGNIZED. DOES YOUR CAMERA WORK WITH THE OLD CARD AND NOT SHOW THE ERROR? ARE YOU SURE YOU HAVE YOUR CAMERA SET TO USE THE SD CARD AND NOT INTERNAL MEMORY? CHECK THROUGH YOUR MENU ITEMS FOR CHOICES. TRY THESE FIRST AND IF YOU STILL NEED HELP, REPLY TO: ARCLIGHT1217. IF THIS IS HELPFUL, PLEASE RATE, THANKS!
