Hello,
Sounds like the photos are locked. First make sure all the photos on the card are saved to your computer because this solution will delete all of the images and give you a fresh memory card.
Once the images are saved put the card back in the camera. Go to the playback menu and scroll down to 'Format' select format and confirm your selection. That will overwrite the card and remove any locked files. The other option is to go to the image that is locked then pull up that menu again and then click the 'Protect' option to remove the lock from the image. I personally format my card but again, make sure you save your images to your computer first because you cannot retrieve them once you format.
Thanks, Matt

Make sure the picture you can't remove isn't locked. When you're in review press menu and make sure that photo isn't set to locked (if so unlock and you should be able to delete it).
If that doesn't help, make sure you copy off all the images on the card you want, as the following instructions are intended to clear the entire card.
After you transfer all the images you want, you'll want to format the memory card. This can be done one of two ways. If you have the appropriate card reader on your PC, you can insert the card, find it in my computer. Then right click it and select format.
The easier way is to use your camera's format feature. I don't have that specific model, but it can usually either be found in menu, or by pressing the picture review button and then menu. Formatting the card should erase all the data on it and clear off the picture you don't want.
Please leave feedback if this was helpful. Thanks.

Deleting pictures from memory card


The camera lacks internal RAM or space on the card to do enough caching to delete the pictures. If you were to not exceed about 60% capacity of the card the camera may be able to delete as much as you want on the card. You have to try this. If the camera has a format option for its memory card you can try it out to see if this will clean up the card. The other solution is to have a PC computer. Most of these devices are designed only for PC interface. Jerry G.

Disk says not enough space on disk to finilize?


Each time you execute finalization, the disc remaining space will decrease by approximately 13 MB. If you don’t have enough room, it won’t allow you to finalize the disc.
To finalize this disc, you have to delete some pictures to make enough space. But don’t worry, before you delete those pictures, you can save them to your computer.
Find out the CDs came with your camera, refer your manual page 51 - 61 to install ‘PIXELA PTP Manager’ , connect your camera and computer with USB cable, and copy some pictures to your computer, then delete the pictures on camera side. If still not enough room, copy more and delete more. make it enough to do the finalization.

Deleting pics


Hi. I don't know if you accidentally changed something, but I would take all the pictures off. Download them to a pc then format the card. Then, reset the camera back to manufacturer specs. That would fix it.

Many people clear photos and videos. However, they fail to clear audio recordings. Look for a long accidental recording of an audio. A long audio file also can take up all your disk space. So one day it has capacity to take 200 photos. The next day "no disk space". Hope it helps.

You need to delete files from your memory. Pictures take up a lot of space, to be able to take additional pictures you should probably delete some of the ones you have saved in the gallery currently. Delete files to make more space and you can take more pictures.
