Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ18 Digital Camera ?

Pictures won't truly erase from my camera.

\015 I download the pictures from my Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ18 and have them automatically erase from the camera once they're downloaded. When I check to see if the images are gone it seems fine. It says there are no images to view. But when I take new photos and download them, all the old ones download again, even though they don't show up on the camera.\015

Glad the format solved your problem.
Are you using the computer to erase them? If so, your camera doesn't recognize any operations you do with your computer. The next time you finish the download, format the card in the camera to completely erase it.
