Having problems with your Sony Cybershot DSC-S950 Digital Camera ?

The camera keeps saying there's no memory left-- but there are only 17 photos on the card and it's 2G.

Answers :

It may be possible you have other data on the card or the card is defective. Reformat the card (after safely moving the 17 photo's you do have to a computer!)this may do the trick.\015\012
\015\012I'm not making assumptions but, Always buy memory from reputable suppliers as their is a surprisingly large market for counterfeit inferior memory cards at too good to be true prices; especially on that famous auction site! I fallen for it before, and had the same problem you describe. This is by no means the definite cause of your situation; Genuine cards can of course sometimes go wrong too.
