When you download does it delete the pictures automatically or are all your pictures still on it. It sounds as though the internal memory or memory card is full and you will need to delete some pictures or format the memory after you have downloaded them to your PC.
Assuming your iMac is plugged into a properly grounded outlet ...
Large, soft towel or such.
a Phillips screwdriver (size 1 or 2).
Compressed/canned air (optional)
Shut down the iMac completely.
Unplug all the accessories connected to the iMac, except power cord, and set them aside and out the way.
Place a soft towel or such on a large (based on the size of your iMac) flat surface capable of supporting the weight of your iMac and preferably close to you iMac.
Carefully place your iMac, screen side down, onto the soft towel.
Touch the outside METAL chassis of the iMac to discharge any of your body's static electricity.
UNPLUG the power cord from your iMac and set it away from the computer.
Move the stand upwards so you can see the panel with the three phillips head screws.
Carefully loosen each one, NOTE: they do not come out, they will stay in-place.
Gently remove the panel, IF it does not come off easily DO NOT force it, try loosening the screws even more until the panel is easily removed.
Spray the compressed air in to the exposed RAM area to blow away any built up dust.
There should be two plastic "pull tabs" that are tucked in behind the RAM - NOTE how they are placed s you will need to put them back the way you found them - pull out the tabs so that you can easily grab them.
This model iMac has 4 memory slots. You likely have two memory slots filled and two that are empty. So this describes how to add two more memory modules to the two that you already have.
Note that there is a notch in the edge of the memory module that needs to match up with the 'bump' of the available memory slot inside the computer.
Gently, but firmly slide the memory into the slot, making sure that the notch/bump line up.
When the memory stops sliding easily, use one hand to hold the iMac steady and use the other hand to firmly push the memory securely into the slot.
The memory should 'click' into place and be even with the other memory, if already installed.
If it won't go in any further, DO NOT FORCE IT! (Don't used ANYTHING to 'pound' them into the slots!)
Slide it back out and make sure the notch in the memory lines up with the bump inside the computer and try again.
Repeat this with the second memory module.
Slide the plastic tabs back in place the way that you found them.
Replace the panel and gently tighten the screws, do not over tighten the screws, they just hold the panel in place.
Carefully return your iMac to it's full and upright position.
Connect the mouse & keyboard if they are not wireless.
Plug the power cord bak into the iMac.
Turn on your iMac.
It should make it's normal startup "chime".
IF it beeps three times, then there is something wrong ... UNPLUG the power cord!
Either the memory isn't installed all the way, which you would have noticed as the panel would not fit correctly.
The wrong type (speed) of memory was installed. Confirm with the place of purchase that the memory is at least (1333 MHz PC3-10600 DDR3 SDRAM).
Yes my friend you will be able to store only 650 - 700 MB in it since its 1 GB memory card,And dont try to add additional file Because you may find these issues 1)Accessing speed will be less 2)Frequently hangs itself 3)Some applications wont open...Hope this is help ful for you
