Having problems with your Samsung Digital Cameras ?

Sorry, but do not have my manual close to hand and I am really stuck and need to use the camera now. My Samsung ES17 has allowed me to take approx 6 photos and now says the memory is full. I have a very small memory card in 32 mbytes. How can I tell if I am using the internal memory or the memory card and how can I switch between the two when I get in a jam?


Answers :

Take the card out and review the pictures. Put the card back in and review again. Are the pictures different? Most cameras continue to use the internal memory until the pictures on it are erased by formatting in the camera with no memory card inserted. Then, when the card is inserted, the camera writes to the card.

I have a Kodak easyshare m320 which I recieved today. I bought an SD card to go with it because the internal memory is really small. Near the card port, it says it accepts SD cards, and it also says this on the manual, but the card I bought for it is not being read by the camera. I can put the card in my computer and it works fine, though, so I don't know what the problem is. Do I need to do something to my camera in order to make it use the card rather than internal memory?

I wanted a new memory card for my camera - this model- and was sold a Sandisk SDHC flash memory card. Before opening the package I'd like reassurance that this is appropriate for my camera as the assistant did not ask me the make and model of camera and I see that the small print says :"not all devices support SHDC cards". If it isn't I shall return it unopened for a refund and would you tell me what would be appropriate.
