Hello,

What is happening is the camera internal memory is full, so it uses the SD CARD for space, thus you cannot simply take a photo or video until that is all cleaned out or a SD card with space is introduced into the camera.

1.Delete photos from the internal memory then try again.
2. or place a sd card into the camera with space.


Thanks for using Fixya.com I hope you found this helpful.

Hello and Welcome

The DCF error message with your Samsung camera nearly always occurs when you're using a memory card that was formatted with a different camera, and the file format structure is not compatible with your Samsung camera. You will have to format the card with the Samsung camera.However, make sure you download any photos to your computer first

Anymore help, I am here to help
Best of Luck

My Samsung ES30 camera gives me the DCF Full error message.I tried other solutions ,such as formatting the memory cardd,I even tried a new memory card.Still the message comeup.Who know what to do?I am in...


The manual says: the files names does not match the DCF format. Transfer the files on the card to your computer and format the card.
You tried to format and it did not work. Sure the card is not locked? The lock switch should be up, so the card is unlocked an you must be able to format te card and you should be able to write files to the memory card.
Although the camera is compatible with SCHC I wonder if you did not put in a very big card. Perhaps your camera cant work with 8 or 16 GB. Is surely can't work with SDXC cards.
Did you try a normal SD card, and could you format that one?

When I turn on my camera, in the middle of the screen in a black box it says " DCF full error" what does this mean and how do I get it to go away? I have tried resetting my camera and formatting...


Hello

Thank you for using FIXYA!!!

OK, firstly let me state what exactly the error message you are receiving concludes to:
"The "DCF full error" occurs when you use memory card in your camera which is formatted in another camera. The error is the result of improper formatting of the memory card which leads to incompatibility of the card with the Samsung camera."

Now, i the resolution for this specific problem is to format the memory card in the Samsung camera.

I know you stated that you have already formatted the card, but you did not state if you formatted the card in your camera, or on your computer.

Try the above solution and let me know if the problem still persists.

Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any further questions.

Kind regards

DCF Full Error


DCF = Digital Camera Full

Usually, that just means you have taken a lot of pictures/videos and your memory card is full.
You should transfer them to a computer via USB or by taking the memory card out and putting it directly into a computer.
If you continue to have problems after emptying the memory card, you may have a faulty memory card.
If you suspect you have a faulty memory card, you might try a different one.
Always try to use a trusted memory card brand (I prefer Sandisk).

Good luck, I hope I was able to help

New 4G memory card states full have re-formatted but still shows full. Have tried a 2G card but that is ok to use any ideas please


Your new 4GB card is an SDHC card. The S700 works with MMC and SD cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to go with cards 2GB and smaller.
