It's not that it is erased, the memory is too much. I have the new samsung, and you need less memory, and when you get that, you then need to format it. Just try it and i can bet you it will work. Hoped i helped.

Brenda, Although I only have a little to go on, I'll give it a try.

Olympus camera's do have an internal memory, but just for a limited amount of pictures. When your camera says Memory full, this internal memory is full. You can place a memory card, or free memory, by deleting pictures. But don't delete a picture before you are sure you saved the picture on the computer or some other media.
If you want a memory card, check what type of card goes into your camera. When you place a memory card in the camera it has to be formatted (check the manual) but NEVER format a memory card, when you have any pictures in the internal memory, because you could loose all the pictures in the internal memory too.
With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" (called "initialize" on some cameras) and follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Then insert your card and enjoy.
Took a bit to find this this bad news in the manual but what happens now is to get the pictures from the internal memory to the computer as a down load you need to first insert a memory card format the memory card and load each picture from the internal memory onto the memory card one at a time once that is down then you can download the memory card to the computer then you will need to reformat the memory card and then go back into the internal memory erase each one of those images and format the internal memory. Now the GOOD news, you only have 10 pictures. Don't forget to do the formatting.
It is probably telling you the internal memory is full. To erase it, with no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" and follow the on-screen instructions. Then, promise never to use the internal memory again. Get a memory card, do the format thing in your camera with the card inserted and enjoy the camera.
What makes you think you need to use the computer to format the camera? Why do you need to format the camera at all? We format memory cards and we format internal memories of cameras but these functions are done in the camera, not the computer.
Well, I had same issue and call the crapus support and they told me to format it. That is solution they recommend. it happen to me three times already had a camera less than 2 month. Well time to sell crapus and get me a real camera, I had Nikon and Canon almost 8 years and never had issue with memory card. I was stupid to take chance on crapus, by the way if you are not using none olympus brand memory card you are out of luck, they do not support.
