The memory card needs to be formatted by the camera. The card can be formatted in section 1 of the playback menu. Formatting will erase all data from the card. You can download the manual on the following link: http://ca.konicaminolta.com/support/manuals/digital_cameras/dimage-z/dimage_z1/D_Z1_E.pdf

    Posibly the card is not compatible with the camera or is write protected? SD /MMC cards can have a small slider on the side which makes them read only. See page 111 in the manual. Perhaps try a smaller capacity card?

My camara keep displaying the message; "INTERNAL MEMORY IS FULL INSERT A NEW" I cannot take any pictures with this message showing up ...how can this be fixed?..please help

Hi, That can be fixed by putting a memory card into the camera. It can take a SD card or a XD card. SD's are easier to find and tend to cost less. Once you buy one you put it in the bottom of the camera in the same compartment of the battery and then you'll be able to take more photos. If you need more help let me know =)

I clear photos off the card, put it back in camera (same as before) but this time it says unable to use card. so i put another one in and it still says the same thing. What is the problem and why can't...

I would suggest trying to format the memory card from the camera menu, not from your computer. If you are unable to do this, and other cards are not working the camera memory card slot may be damaged and unable to make good contact with the cards.

What do i do when I turn on my sony alpha 100 and it tells me unable to use but I formatted it and it still says unable to use???

It's most likely a problem with the memory card. This message comes up when the card sustains damage to any degree. Did you lend your camera or card to anyone or put the card into the wrong reading drive by accident? It may be time for a new memory card/stick. Exchange it if it's still under warranty.

A95 LCD screen black and unable to take photos

Its common problem in canon cameras and I have solution. please let me know if you didn't find in chat.

Setting to store images on memory card

There shouldn't be a setting for this. Cameras have an automatic switch that when a memory card is detected it automatical puts it there and once it's full it uses the onboard memory.

If it is going straight to memory when you put the card in then your camera is not recognizing the card when you insert it. This is caused by the camera's inability to handle a high capacity card. Meaning if you put like a 2 to 4 gb card it has to much memory for the camera to use.

Try using a smaller memory and if this fails then your internal card reader is bad and needs to be fixed.


The best way around this problem is to have a card reader installed on your PC.
Using the card reader you can format, delete, copy or whatever just like it was a hard drive attached to the computer.
You can even get a usb card reader so there is no need to install anything into your PC. Check yourlocal PC for either version.

There is however a possibility that the card has been put into write protect mode. Pull the card out and there will normally be a tiny switch. One way is writeable, the other is write protected.

Let me know how you go =)

Internal memory is full message

please to format the internal

turn on> menu> setup menu> format> internal memory> ok

if it's still doing the same thing.. this needs a repair
CX7000 series repair cost is $75-95, depending on the camera model (what's after CX7?)

Memory card locked

I noticed that this camera does not work well with cheaper memory cards. The only brand that works without fail is the SanDisk brand.

Unable to format memory card

You mentioned in your post "the above camera", but I can't find the make/model of your camera? Check on the manufacturer's website to see what the largest capacity card can be used in your camera. Knowing the make/model and searching for the message on the internet can yield better answers to your question.
