yesterday I noticed that the 4GB card in my E600 said 85 "pictures" left on card..............and I had only used about 20. I checked another 4GB card and it read around 600 which is what I thought, checked all the setting and they are the same as my E620. So is the card that has given up the ghost. My darling hubby downloads sometimes and he empties the card via the pc, while I do it via the camera, after I check everything has gone accross.
Any ideas..

Have you tried formatting the card in the camera?

No I have not, now go and find out how to do it. I was just wondering why.

Well I misread the above I had reformatted on the camera, well bougt a new 4GB card a sandisk ultra 200X read/write. When I formatted that in the camera I get over a 1000 shots and all my settings are the same......................duhthe old card was a lexar proffessional 4GB 133X speed.
Had a look the reset on the E600 is in the cogs under H. I think my 620 is doing the same thing as the 8GB card is showing about 1200.
