I had various "funny" problems with my a510 and I tried formating my memory chip in the camera and the problems went away!!

I never connect the camera to the computer but use a memory chip reader to load pixs to the hard drive, then return the chip to the camera and delete and re-format the chip.

Possibly. How much is free? Id delete any files that are already copied.

Also, did it find any problems and did you check "automatically fix file system errors"?


By The Way/ It is possible that it's corrupted beyond help...

My Kodak Easyshare V1253 says memory full for media card when using with flash

Hi hanif304,

Please check if you have the default memory selected as your memory card memory and not your phone memory.

So if your phone memory is selected as default for storage and it's full then you won't be able to store more images before you have free space.

If you have your memory card full and then selected as default memory then the same thing would happen.

A good idea would be to copy the contents of the memory card and/or the phone memory and then format them, this should solve your problem all together.

Hope this helps ...:)

Try doing the following:

  1. Insert the memory on the computer using a memory card reader.
  2. Check the free space of the memory: Right Click on the drive (D: / F: /E)
  3. If it says zero (0) space available but you can't see any file on this try downloading and installing USBshow

I hope this information will be helpful. Thank you for using FixYa!

Can i use samsung s630 for webcam???

Not all camcorders can be used as webcams. Since this is a still camera, I would not expect it to be able to be a web cam either...

Your camera is not a camcorder. It is a still camera that happens to take highly compressed video clips. These files are stored on your camera's memory card and can be transfered using the USB cable. You already know this.

There is nothing in the manual that even hints that it can be a webcam. So I will say it is not possible.

Since you can replace the memory card, with a bigger one, it is difficult to say how long you can record... If you need more video recording time, then just get more video cards. It says that on page 83 of the manual, "recording time : memory capacity dependent"... It will also depend on the quality of the video you select - higher quality uses more of the memory card space and looks OK. Lower quality uses less space, but does not look as good.

I have an olympus sp-350 and while trying to download pictures I accidently deleted them from my camera? Can I recover them?

you can recover pictures from camera with camera recovery software like asoftech photo recovery, download from

you'd better remove the memory card from camera and then connect the memory card to computer with a card reader before you use asoftech photo recovery to scan camera and recover lost pictures.

I do not have a cable for my camera and my m1033 says "internal memory is full". I have a memory card with nothing on it in the camera.

The internal memory is separate from the memory card. This camera has a small amount of memory in the camera itself, that will let you take a few pictures, then the camera stops working because it needs some free space in this memory to work at all. It won't use the memory in the memory card until you delete some of the pics in the internal memory to give it elbow room.

When i view the images, it hangs and displays "FILE ERROR". the images are still there and there is no other problem aside from viewing the still images. really dont know what happenned. when i tried to...

dear sir,

the first solution is to keep some of your phone memory clear,atleast 2 mb.........also keep some 100 mb free space in memory card also...if the card and mobile is fully loaded then the cam is almost dead..........
the next suspect must be your memory card,which has been affected from viruses,while you ve transfered files or received files from untrusted devices,which eventually destroys ur camera also.......
even ater changing memory card,you still face the same problem with a new or formatted memory card,then the problem is caused by virus and sometimes it might be software failure also, which causes some of the menu not tofunction,the only solution is to flash ur camera software from the nearest sevice centre.

thank you.....take care

You may need to reformat the card, somoetimes the free space information becomes corrupted and camera assumes there is no more space.

Nikon memory card all of the sudden downgraded from 1G to hardly anything at all!?!

There are a couple of different things that could help this situation.

First, try deleting photos and videos and other files that might be occupying space on the card.

Secondly, look at the quality (in Movie mode, hit menu and select the quality button). Change it up and down, see what happens.

Thirdly, if you still have the problem, go back to your computer, right click on the card, and see how much space total, and how much free space it shows. If it shows most of the card is free, try taking the movie again. If that doesn't work, try a different card or use the same card in a different camera.

Good luck!
