I have a Lumix cameera, Model # DMC-FZ8. I recently installed a new memory card because the one that came with the camera began to malfunction. The new memory card is now having the same problem. The camera tells me "memory card is full" when there are no photos in the camera. I have checked the camera by hooking it up to my computer and it shows no photos in the camera.

Put it in play mode and see if there are pictures on the card (if the card wasnt brand new, of course) If not the card more than likely needs to be formated. In play mode push menu set button go to format when it says delete all data in memory card s ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ8 Digital Camera

I recently bought a Canon A590. I've taken perhaps 20 photos on half a dozen occasions and I'm having trouble getting the photos onto my computer (only 2 years old, up to date). I can usually only retrieve about 30% of the photos completely, another 50% "half" the photo with the other portions white, gray or black, then 30% I can't access at all. I'm not sure where to start to fix this problem; at this point I'm ready to return the camera and be done withit!

I have a new (3 weeks) D700 and while taking photos yesterday with camera and a 16-35mm lens, the exposure meter went ape. Pictures taken ok but ERR started to flash where shutter speed reading should be displayed in viewfinder. Tried everything, including resetting to factory settings, detaching and reattaching lens, checking switches, and then went home in despair. At home I switched to a 50mm lens and the problem disappeared. I put the 16-35mm lens back and problem seemed to have disappeared.
