Having problems with your Sony Digital Cameras ?

Card Full but showing none

\015 My Olympus Camedia Stylus 300 is suddenly showing 'card full' message but nothing when plugged into the computer, either directly or through card reader. I have been using it for more than 6 years and I always transfer the pics though the camera's USB port and format the card using camera menu. I have my son's birthday pics and many precious pics ther. Can I have my pictures back? Please HELP! Nadia\015

Why is my camera says "the card is full" when I turn it on? I know the card is empty, there is only one or none picture on it.
