Solution overview: You need to "clean" the SD card by using the clean command in Diskpart and then format the card in Disk Management. This solution will show you how to accomplish this.

1. Plug the SD Card into the computer.

2. Press Win+R to open the Run command.
3. Type "cmd" into the dialog box and press enter to open a command prompt.

4. Type "Diskpart" into the command line of the command prompt to start Diskpart. Wait for Diskpart to load.
5. Type "List Disk" and press enter.
6. Take note of the number of the disk that's associated with your SD card.
7. Type "Select Disk X" where X = the number of the disk that's associated with your SD card and press enter. Make sure the command prompt reports that Disk X is selected.
8. Type "Clean" or "Clean all" and press enter. Clean will be faster but might not solve your problem. If using the clean command doesn't solve your problem, then repeat steps 1-8 and type "Clean all".
9. Wait for Diskpart to complete the cleaning operation - this may take some time so wait until it's completed!
10. Close command prompt.

11. Press Win+R to open the Run command.
12. Type "DISKMGMT.MSC" into the dialog box and press enter. Wait for Disk Manager to load.

13. In Disk Manager, scroll down and select the SD Card.
14. Right click and select "New Simple Volume".
15. Select Next, Assign Drive Letter, and select "Next" again.
16. Select "FAT32" for File System and "Default" for Allocation Unit Size. Fill in whatever you want for the Volume Label. Make sure "Perform quick format" is checked and click OK.
17. Wait for formatting to complete and remove SD card from computer.

18. Plug SD card into camera to see if the problem is solved.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa. Post back if you have any questions or problems.

Can erase all pic at one time


The best way to erase all your pics at one time is to format the memory card. In fact, the memory card should be formatted each time you finish downloading the pics to your computer. Formatting not only erases the pics but also cleans up the directory structure and file information. FixYa is full of people asking how to retrieve pics from memory cards that haven't been formatted recently.

Memory card is full and when I plug in the USB cord and turn on the camera I get a message that my device is not connected or is busy, or that it contains no pictures!!


Causes of memory card corruption
  • Turning off a camera before an image is completely written to the memory card.
  • Removing the memory card from a camera while an image is being written to the card.
  • Removing the card from a memory card reader while files are still being transferred to a computer.
  • Batteries conking out as files are being transfered directly from the camera to a computer. Note: always make sure you have fully charged batteries before transferring images.
  • Removing the card from a card reader while folders and files from the card are open on a computer.
  • Opening, deleting, renaming or moving files on the card while its contents are open on a computer.
  • Using a memory card which has not been formatted in the camera. Use the delete/erase function when needed, however a card should be regularly formatted.
  • Formatting a card in a computer instead of the camera.
  • Inserting a second memory card into a card reader before closing and removing the first when viewing images on the card from a computer.
  • Taking photos when camera batteries are nearly empty.
  • Taking photos too rapidly so the camera can not complete writing one image before starting the next.
  • Continually shooting and deleting, shooting and deleting images when the card is full.
  • Letting a memory card get too full before downloading the images to a computer or storage device. Cards that are too full may overwrite the card headers.
  • Using a memory card from one camera in a different camera without formatting it in the new camera first.

My flip camera says its empty but when I try to record it says its full??


Your memory card may think it's full if you've been deleting pics from it when it's in your PC and not in the camera.

If you've offloaded all the pics you want to from your memory card, put it back in your camera and "reformat" the card - there should be instructions how to do this in your camera manual. (If you've misplaced your manual you can likely find an online version on the website of your camera manufacturer). Hopefully this will fix your problem.

From now on, (even if you have to buy a new memory card), don't do any editing or deleting of pics directly on the memory media while it is in your PC (or Mac). Offload your pics to a file of their own on the PC (you can edit pics from that file). Then put the memory card back into the camera, verify that you did indeed successfully offload the pics to the PC (with the media card out of the PC), then delete the pics from the card while it's in the camera.

Reformat the memory card periodically (in the camera) after you've offloaded your pics (reformatting will erase all pics so you've gotta be sure you captured them elsewhere) to maintain the 'health' & full functionality of your memory card.


thanks.

I put my Scandisk SDHC 4 GB memory card in my Dell computer and put all my photos in folders straight in the card (I did not import them to computer first ) just after I put photos in folders I put them...


It is likely that the camera reads the FAT (File Allocation Table) of the card in a different way than the computer. Try re-formatting the card in the camera.

I have taken 8 pictures with my camera and we had put in an 8gb memory card, but my camera says internal memory is full. this is a brand new camera, and I am learning about it, but why is the memory...


Apparently, you used the internal memory before putting in the memory card. Now the camera only wants to use the internal memory. Here's the fix...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 the memory card. If this is a new card, you will need to format it in the camera, too. If there are any pics on it, download them first using a card reader if necessary, because the card will be completely erased.

I put a new memory card in the camera and it says


You need to eliminate the pics from the internal memory. 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 do the "format" thing again for the card. Everything should be normal now.
