Go through your camera ownnes manual to the cameras 'Menu'. Locate & run 'Format' This should get your camera working again.

Then buy yourself an extra 512m memory card, and reduce the size of your images. You will be able to store a lot more pictures.

Download images to your PC then Delet/Reformat the Memory again.

You need to get a mem stick, you are using the internal memory on the camera which is more than likely very small.

My SD600 states memory card full when I use the original SD 16M card. There are 6 pictures on it and will not take more. What settings should I use to correct that issue?


The original card that came with your camera was very low capacity. As you've discovered, it can only hold a few pictures, and was only included with the camera to show that the camera works. You really should purchase a new SD memory card. These are very inexpensive (here's some from Amazon) and will literally hold hundreds of pictures. BUT make sure that you purchase a 2GB or small SD card, and NOT a 4GB or larger SDHC card. Newer SDHC cards were designed after your camera, and although they look exactly the same, they will not work with your camera.

4 GB memory card = 6 pictures


See the camera specifications, whether it supports memory cards above 2gb, if it supports it must have the "sdhc logo", most of the old camera's dos'nt have support for memory cards of capacity 4gb and above.

Internal Memory full; No memory card in; Will not take pictures;


You need to get a memory card and promise to never use the internal memory again....it only causes problems as you have found out. When you get the new card follow this procedure: 1. With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" and follow the on-screen instructions to format the internal memory. 2. Insert the new card and do the format thing again to prepare the new card. Happy photography!

I have formatted and have bought a new memory card but it will only take 6 pictures and says that the memory is full


Make sure you are saving your pictures to the card, not the internal memory Next, make sure you have alarge enough card to hold a good amount of pictures. Next, set your picture size to something lower. Pictures can take as much as 6MB eack or as little as 1/4 MB each.

I have a Kodak Easy Share C310. It keeps saying that the internal memory card is full. The card is the camera is 200 photos yet it is only showing the original 16! Thanks, Kathy D


"internal memory card is full" There is no more space in the camera's internal memory. Your camera has 16 MB of internal memory. The number of pictures you can store depends on the Picture Size setting you have selected on your camera.The following are approximate number of pictures you can take at each setting: 4.0 MP: 16 pictures 3.1 MP: 18 pictures 2.8 MP: 20 pictures 2.1 MP: 29 pictures 1.1 MP: 48 pictures Internal Memory?the camera always uses internal memory, even if a card is installed. Auto (default)?the camera uses the card if one is in the camera. If not, the camera uses internal memory Image Storage Choose a storage location for pictures and videos. To correct the issue your getting follow this steps: 1.Press the Menu button. 2.Press to highlight the setting you wish to change, then press the OK button. - The settings you need to look for is Image Storage 3.Choose an option, then press the OK button. - The option you need to choose is Auto the camera uses the card if one is in the camera. 4.Press the Menu button to exit.

Olympus 790SW 7.1 MP reads full 1GB memory card is full after 2 pictures


Suggestion is to format the memory card and permanently delete all of the images from it. The card should then be able to be reused and you can start taking images again. To format the card go to Menu - setup and press ok - go to format and press ok - go to yes and press Ok. This will clear the card and you are back in business.
