My digital camera is acting weird. When I turn it on, it says: card Full. When I change the camera mode to view the ''full'' card it says: No Image. I attached the camera to my computer and it showed the card was empty.

I've taken out the card and battery and put them back in, no luck. I've reset the camera, also no luck.

This is very annoying.

Does anybody have an idea how to get this problem fixed?

You may have to format the card.

If you just delete pictures they will leave behind some residue on the card, try reformatting the card.

Thanks for your very fast reply.

I'm on vacation at my grandparents right now. My grandma has an iMac. Any idea how to reformat the card from a mac? I've looked in every option in Finder but couldn't find a ''reformat'' option.


Thanks again.

Generally, you should use whatever the card is being used in to format it

I've looked for a reformat option on the camera but didn't find it. Reset camera looked like it might do something but didn't help.

Thanks anyway.

Good luck
