Only have 16mb memory stick that came with camera. On lowest photo quality settings I could take over 20 photos. Suddenly it can now only take 4. I have reset the camera and checked all settings but I cant work out what has gone wrong. Any suggestions?

Re: Not using all memory
Check the memory stick properties at the computer using card reader or format it after you save the picture taken to make sure the memory has been clean totally....if nothing happen to your memory stick it have a bad sector....buy a new one..

I don't know what manual you're reading but the camera will only record 80 seconds at the lowest resolution. This is a very old camera that still uses the now extinct XD card. If movies really interest you, consider getting a new camera. The new models have literally hundreds of new features that I'm sure you will really like.
It depends on the picture resolution and the size of the memory card. Normal JPEG 2048 x 1472 : 11.0 - With 16MB
built-in memory , Fine JPEG 2496 x 2016 : 19.0 - With 16MB built-in
memory , Normal JPEG 2048 x 1376 : 19.0 - With 16MB built-in memory ,
Fine JPEG 2496 x 2016 : 9.0 - With 16MB built-in memory , Normal JPEG
2048 x 1472 : 9.0 - With 16MB built-in memory , Normal JPEG 2048 x 1376 :
35.0 - With 16MB built-in memory , Fine JPEG 1024 x 736 , Fine JPEG
1024 x 736
The capacity of various memory cards will be similar to the above ratios.
the 16 mb card is pretty small -you can buy a 250 mb card which may fix your problem. Also, some digital camera have a built in memory which permits you to take pictures with no memory stick in the camera, but these are always small capaciity. Maybe you need to switch from internal memory to memory stick in your camera settings.
Hi, Please try this, turn on your camera, insert a blank memory stick, slide the side switch down to the lowest point, should say “No file in this folder” click on menu, click on Setup, use the arrows and go to Memory Stick, choose “Copy” choose “Album” the “OK” this will copy all you pictures from the Album in your camera to your memory stick.
There should be 2 settings, 1 for internal memory, 1 for external (card) memory. Internal memory is always low, especially if camera is set to high quality photos so only a few can be taken. check your settings on picture quality.
just change the resolution set the camera on photo mode then press trash button, it should display the resolutions i recomend 1.3 megapixels for normal pictures, when you need the high resolution change it to better also if you use the options of the photo mode you can change from fine to normal picture quality
You may be able to store up to 110 images if you use the camera in its lowest resolution mode. In high resolution, you may get only 24 shots. We wish we could tell you precisely, but it depends on the exact size of the file created by a given camera, as well as the resolution that you select.
Keep in mind that Secure Digital, CompactFlash, and SmartMedia memory cards are competing products and are not interchangeable. You'll find a few cameras that are compatible with more than one brand, but generally when you buy a digital camera today, you'll be making a commitment to work with one type of memory card.
Use the attached chart to determine the average number of photos that Secure Digital memory cards can store (compatible with most HP digital cameras)
1. Set the mode switch to MEMORY STICK.
2. Set the power switch to CAMERA.
3. Press the PHOTO button and hold it.
**If you do not wish to keep the still photo, wait 2 seconds until the picture releases.
4. To keep the image, pess the PHOTO button once again within 2 seconds after releasing the button.
The still image is recorded to the Memory Stick.
**Audio cannot be recorded onto the Memory Stick.
