Went to a concert, took pics, erased some and kept others, came home to transfer...no memory card! Is that possible??? Extremely confused. Go to transfer images anyway...now blue error screen says it's not closed. It so is! Jiggled, shook, pressed...nothing works after 1 hour of trying everything! I just want my precious concert pics off this camera! Can someone help me or do I just get the gun?
Hmmm, I'm thinkin' if there's no memory card in camera, there are NO memories, aka formerly known as photos.
Unless there is some sort of an internal memory, but me thinks not.
As for error message, might be because....card fell out while an image was being captured.

Get a card reader and use it to download to a folder you create on your desktop. If that doesn't get you all of your pics, take the card to a Walmart store and use their picture kiosk machines to print the pics or even make a CD of them. Once the pics are safe, you can format the card in the camera to get it erased and back to original condition.
I had the same problem. Your memory card likely has too much memory. I put in a 4G card and it would not take a photo. Every time the camera went off it said "Error - Card Full".
You have 2 options.
1.) You can remove the memory card and use the internal memory to take photos (it will only hold 20 pics) and transfer them onto the memory card by shutting the camera off, inserting the card, turning the camera on, wait for the menu to clear and then shutting the camera off again and removing the card. This does work, but you are limited in the number and quality of photos that you will get.
2.) Get a smaller capacity memory card. I went out and bought a 2G card. Funny thing is that the camera wouldn't even recognize it at first. When I turned the camera on a message saying "Please wait" kept flashing on the screen. I waited 10 minutes and just shut it off and pulled the card again. I took the card home and formatted it on my PC. When I put it in the camera the next time it worked fine. So to save you some trouble, buy a smaller card and FORMAT it on your computer before trying it in the camera. It will save you a headache. After all of that BS I finally got the stupid thing to work. It takes beautiful pics but I will not be buying another Cuddeback. My next trail cam will be a different brand for sure. Not worth the hassle IMO.
The memory card may be full. Transfer the pictures from the camera as normal (or directed), and once sure they are on your computer or printed out, delete all the pictures (erase) from the memory card.
Try to take pictures again - if the error is still present (or you are unable to transfer the pictures to the computer) , there may be an issue with the card. You may not be able to use the card anymore - but before discarding, see if it works in another device or "stand alone memory card reader". If it works in either of those devices, there may be a problem with your camera. Try using another memory card to see if you get the same message when trying to take pictures with the new card installed. if you do, it looks more like a camera problem than a memory card problem. Hopefully, it's the memory - and not the camera.
Did you format the card before using it on your camera? Try using a memory card reader instead of the printer's SD card slot to transfer the video. Also check if the memory card is locked (check the position of the yellow slider at the right side of the card). If this does not work, then you will have to format the card. Unfortunately this will erase all the data in your card.
Your card may have become corrupted, there are good free utilities out there to save such files from corrupted memory cards, try DIR (Digital Image Recovery) that you can use with a computer card reader if the computer does not recognize your connected camera as an external hard drive.
If you were able to recover your files, format the card in the camera, that should solve your problem using the card.
If the card cannot be recognized by the computer or formatting the card doesn't help, you may have a defective memory card, try another one.
If the card works otherwise but is still not recognized by the camera you may have a defective memory card connector or other camera motherboard problem, sorry.
A card access error may indicate that an xD-Picture Card memory card is in a write-protected condition. xD-Picture Card memory cards have a special protection feature to ensure that your pictures are kept safe.
During this condition, you can still use the printer for printing and saving photos from the xD-Picture Card to a secure location, such as the computer hard drive.
To resolve this error, try the following:
Reinsert the xD-Picture Card memory card into your camera and turn on the camera. In most cases, the camera automatically makes the necessary changes.
Reformat the xD-Picture Card memory card. See the documentation that came with your camera for instructions on reformatting the memory card. Note that this process erases the pictures currently saved to your memory card. To save these pictures, transfer them to the computer before reformatting the memory card. Once you reformat the memory card, transfer those photos back to the memory card using the computer.
