Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A530 Digital Camera ?

I can only take like 2 to 5 pictures on my Canon PowerShot A530 then the memory card says it's full.


Answers :

Actually, your camera is probably telling you the internal memory is full. To get the camera to write to the card, you need to get rid of everything on the internal memory. Here's how...with no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Then, your card should work properly.
