I had various "funny" problems with my a510 and I tried formating my memory chip in the camera and the problems went away!!

I never connect the camera to the computer but use a memory chip reader to load pixs to the hard drive, then return the chip to the camera and delete and re-format the chip.

Possibly. How much is free? Id delete any files that are already copied.

Also, did it find any problems and did you check "automatically fix file system errors"?

I have an 8GB SD card with nothing on the card, completely empty and my T2i is saying ''card full'' when i turn it on. it is happening with both of my SD cards when both are completely...

Try doing the following:

  1. Insert the memory on the computer using a memory card reader.
  2. Check the free space of the memory: Right Click on the drive (D: / F: /E)
  3. If it says zero (0) space available but you can't see any file on this try downloading and installing USBshow

I hope this information will be helpful. Thank you for using FixYa!

I have a blackberry curve with a 2gb memory card but now when I want to access the memory card it shows there is nothing on but I have music and pictures on the memory card


Firstly check whether u have inserted memory card correctly . If that is correct then check whether the phone is detecting the card. I think blackberry has an option to check it .

If the phone is detecting the card then check for the free space it is showing on the card . If it is showing the correct space and not showing the contents then switch off and switch on the phone after removing the card .

If the phone is not detecting the card then check the card using a card reader there also if it not getting detected then you need to check the card whether it has some physical problems. If the card is getting detected on the card reader check your phone with some other card and even after that if the same situation exists then you can take your phone to a service center

Cant put anymore songs on msd card but still has memory free

in cases like this, there is space that is allotted for it's own operation. This also happens with every single flash memory device that you can purchase. It's annoying, but there's nothing you can do about it. Hope this was helpful.

How do you fix my memory card?????/

Sounds like you might have knocked the card by accident and caused it to loose the data. The most common issue with the memory card is that the chip board inside comes loose and it moves so open the card up put the chip back in position and tighten it back up or if thats not the case get some rubbing alcohol and clean the gold strips.

Memory card says i need more space

something similar happened to me before, its probably something wrong with your memory card.  take it out, blow into it, etc.  if that doesnt work then try and switch memory card disc slots. if THAT doesnt work... i dont know. when somehting like this happened to my flashdrive it was because it was it had hidden data or soemthing. anyway, is it a playstation 1 mmory card? those have like no space.
