Memory card sending wrong message

My Lumix DMC-TZ10 will not let me take photographs, it keeps saying MEMORY CARD FULL. This is rubbish as there are only about 20 pictures on the card. How can I get rid of this message? I need to be able to use the camera by Saturday.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

But the memory card could actually be full! Try transferring the files to a computer. See if that helps. And if you dont have access to one, then use another memory card.

This is why I will only use : since 1998'

Never once an issue.


This camera also has built in memory

for a few images, when SD is removed.

When images are fully transferred

off to host computer,

then using camera's Format Feature

removes remaining data,

creating a fresh card.

But there's nothing wrong keeping images

on SD even though some were transferred.

I do this as well, using camera's function

to delete any just taking up space.

Using computer- you can easily see volume

size remaining.

While using computer- give cards code name.

This is a great little camera,

and I gave them as gifts as well.

  • Always have fully charged back up

battery with at all times.

This is also my default camera to use for electronic

Image details when set to macro,

It's truly amazing close up clarity.

Even to read the micro details on back of iPad.

I am aware that this is an old thread.

I have just been having this problem too, for the first time, and it took me ages how to figure out how to format the card in camera. I formatted the card on the computer, but this did not work when the card was inserted back into the camera.

So, this is what I did and, at this stage, it seems to work:

1) Insert the 'offending' card.

2) Set camera to 'Cust' on the top dial. This will bring up the 'Custom' menu. (No idea whether the camera has to be set to 'Cust', I just did because the needed menu came up).

3) Hit the left cursor on the menu dial on the back of the camera and then scroll down to the wrench.

4) Hit the cursor on the right

5) Use the down scroll button to go through all the numbers at the top until you get to '5'.

6) 'Format' will be highlighted.

7) Hit the right cursor and the menu 'Format' menu will come up asking whether you want to erase all data from the memory card.

Hitting 'Yes' will clear ALL data. So, before you hit 'yes', make sure you have all your pictures transferred to your computer. If you couldn't transfer the pictures, may be then you just have to forget about them. If you can't transfer the files, maybe it would work if you copy and paste them to your computer and format the card after.
