Camera doesn't recognize empty card

\015 After downloading card camera says memory card full\015

Answers :

Have you ever formatted your card? Recommend that you do this IN YOUR CAMERA. But keep in mind that this will erase your card, so make sure that you have downloaded all your photos to your computer first. Go to the tools menu, then scroll down to the selection stating your memory card's capacity and select it. Then follow the prompts to format it (select "low-level" format for the first time you do this, then uncheck it for any other times you do this). Again, THIS WILL ERASE YOUR CARD, but it will also rejuvenate your card and setup proper file structure to lessen the chance for file corruption.
