Answers :

Does your camera have internal memory? That could be the reason why it is saying full. If not it could be the reader that reads the card is bad, and that is not good sign. How long have you had the camera? It has been known that when you slide those stick in and out the contacts in the camera and on the stick goes bad. I had that happen to me with the stick.
