Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?
The message "Memory is full"
First have you tried formatting the card in your camera? If that doesn't help, how old is your camera? If more than a few years old, it may not be able to recognize the newer SDHC (4GB or higher) format (i.e. you'd need to use 2GB or less standard SD cards). Check on the support page of the maker of your camera to see if it's capable of using SDHC.

I appear to have lost all my holiday photos due to a crash within the camera when the memory was reading full. Although the camera is not recognising any images on the card It still has a message saying memory full. I have tried to copy the images within the camera memory onto the apparently empty memory card but again the message comes up no images to copy.

I have an Olympus FE-340 digital camera. About a week ago I got a message that my memory card was full after I had deleted all of the photos in the memory. As soon as the camera was turned on it said, "Memory full." I thought it was a problem with the card so I planned to replace it, meanwhile I was using internal memory. It now says "Memory full" and there is nothing stored on the camera. Is there any way to fix this?

Olympus D-435 Our camera has been working fine until last week when we started getting this error message - memory full on a blue screen when we had taken only one photo (and deleted all previous photos). Thinking there was a problem with the memory card, we removed it and used only the camera's internal memory which worked for a short while - allowing us to take 12 shots - but now it will only let us take 1 shot before giving us the error message. Is there anything I can do? Many thanks

I know I used up all the memory and I get a message on activating the camera telling me something like 'star two the internal memory".
