Camera says "Memory Card Full" but the card is empty...
I got my camera today and charged the battery all the way and put everything in the camera. I did a test movie just to experiment with it and took a 15 second video, and then deleted it, and now it says the memory card is full. but it's not! I don't understand.

Re: Camera says "Memory Card Full" but the card is...
First, lets try formatting the card. But be aware that it will erase everything on the card.
1 Turn on the camera
2 Press the Menu button
3 Toggle once to the left to get the Setup menu (the one with the hammer/wrench icon)
4 Toggle down to Format
5 Select OK and press the Set button.
To perform a low-level format, press the up arrow and then the right arrow to add the check mark.
After you do this, exit the menu by pressing the Menu button. Take some still photos first. Download them to the computer but don't delete them from the card yet. Disconnect the camera from the computer (or if you are using a card reader remove the card). Delete the images from the card by using the menu in the playback/review mode.
Let me know if this solves anything.

Not sure if it will be this, but has the SD card got locked by accident? There is a little sliding button on the side of the card, which can be locked to protect the content. My camera shows the card as full if I accidentally lock the card. You can just slide it back again to unlock it. I never noticed the button was there until I accidentally knocked it while loading the card in and out of my PC to transfer the photos.
The internal memory is the memory built into the camera, not the memory you put in with a memory card. This internal memory is rather small. If it is completely full, it will stop your camera working even with an empty memory card.
Take the card out of the camera, and delete some of the photos on the internal memory before you put it back in.
lol, ok...The memory card will only go in one way. But check the little white switch on the side of the memory card and make sure it is NOT in the locked position. Once this is taken care of reinstall the memory card. Now in you options/menu screen you can select on there where you want your pictures to be stored...Device / Memory / Auto. You can either put it on Memory or Auto (if you have this). In addition, you may need to format your new memory card. This is also in your menu screen to Format Memory Card. Go ahead and do this. But be forwarned...if you do this when you have pictures on your card, it will erase all of your pictures completely. If you do those things, everything should work fine. You don't need a full charge for your camera to work, but if you have rechargable batteries, it is recommended to fully charge your camera before use. If you are using standard AA batteries this isn't necessary. Oh, and when your memory card is in the camera you should see a little icon on your LCD screen that looks like a mini memory card. This is an indicator that the camera recognizes you have the memory card in the camera and along with that will be a counter...ie 4/1200. The first number is the amount of pictures taken on the card currently and the second number is the total possible pictures you can take on the card before it is full.
First you check ur battery power still constant if not check ur memory card .Empty. ur memmory card through another card reader then on ur camera without putting MC.
in this way ur probleum will solved.
Dont worry lady, i think your problem is related to memory card.
i suppose that you did not format memory card regularly, so format your memory card specific in your camera. and then try.
i hope you deffinnately succeed.
