Deleting one picture

How do I delete just one image from the memory card while it is in the camera? All I find is "erase all" in the menu.
Thanks for any help.

Put the camera in picture review mode. press right and/or left to find the picture that you wish to erase. Press down (see the little trashcan just below the down button?). It will ask you if wish to erase, select yes.

How cani unlock my camera? i cant delete my pictures?


Erasing a memory card: when erasing a memory card, individual photos are deleted from their directories on the card. You can erase one or more user selected images at a time, or erase all images at one time. However, any images that you've selected to be "protected" through another menu option will not be removed during the erasure process.

Formatting a memory card: format a memory card sample menuFormatting, on the other hand, deletes all images from a memory card, even the ones that may have been protected. It recreates the file system including new directories and folders where images are saved on the card.

Unlike erasing, formatting improves the overall performance of a card.

Low level formatting: some digital cameras offer a low level format in addition to the standard format option. With a low level format, all data on the card is deleted. New directories and folders are also recreated during this process.

A low-level format of a high speed memory card helps ensure smooth continuous shooting at a constant interval. For optimal video performance, it's also recommended that a low level format be done sometime prior to recording.

In camera, not computer: though opinions vary, many recommend formatting a memory card in a digital camera, not via a computer. If you plan to use a memory card that was previously used in another camera, format the card in the new camera before taking any shots.

Hope this helps and just keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

How do i clear the internal memory from my camera. on the scean it says internal memory full


The M530 has 32 MB of internal memory, 20 MB of which can be used to store images. You delete images the same way you would if they were stored on an SD/SDHC card. Take out the SD/SDHC card if one is present (so you don't delete images on the card) and turn on the camera in Review mode (press the right-facing arrow button). Use the arrows to move forward and backward in the image list. Press the Delete button to delete them and free up the internal memory.

Hope this helps!

What if I erased the...DMCI folder in my memory card? I can no limport my pictures in my desktop because there is nothing in my memory card..


Hi,

It is not recommended to erase the DCIM Folder in the Camera as this is the root directory in the Digital Camera which contains DCIM (Digital Camera images). This DCIM Folder contains the sub directory where the images are getting saved. if the folder is deleted manually from the Computer, then the Camera will not recognize the Memory Stick inserted and the Computer also. if the folder is deleted or edited, then I suggest you to Format the Memory Stick again in the Camera using the Format option in the Menu of the Camera.

Thanks for using Fixya.

I downloaded some pictures to my school computer and now my camera won't take any pictures. Message is Memory card write protected.


SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

If that doesn't work, try another card.

How do I delete pictures from my memory card.. the camera says card is full?


Hi,

A quick way to multi delete the pictures (providing you have backed them up first), is to use the camera's menu to format the card.

Formatting the card will completely delete all the images and get the card ready for use again.

I want to erase a video, but not "erase all images"


Careful, the way you're doing it would actually erase everything. Use that way only after you've downloaded all your pictures and videos to your computer.

The way to erase a single image or video is to go into picture/video review mode. Advance so that you can see the video you want to delete on your LCD screen. Then press the "trashcan" button on the back of your camera once. It may ask you "delete this video?". Select "yes".
