Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Camera insist on memory full, but card is empty


Answers :

Press "Menu" Press button to the right (towards a little flower on my camera) which takes you to the "setting" menu. scroll down to "format" right click again and it reads "All data deleted" and then gives you the option to "Format" or "Cancel". Select "Format" and then "ok" and pronto....your memory card is ready to go.
After trying to format the SD card as advised above and talking to customer service but not fixing the same problem on a Vivitar X029, my husband worked with the camera for a few minutes and here is how he fixed it. He removed the battery, this gave him more finger space to push the memory card into a deeper position until it clicked. (Maybe using a popsicle stick to push the card down further would allow you to do this without taking out the battery???)Then he reinstalled the battery and he moved the lever over the battery. Originally, the SD card was "floating" (battery door pushed the SD card down further when I closed the door) in the slot but he got the SD card to "seat" properly. We could take pictures after that with no problem and no annoying "memory card full" message with a brand new camera and SD card. Hope it works for you.

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 know the data is there because the camera will only let me take 12 frames before it tells me that its memory is full. How can I recover t

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?
