I recently shot with my A70 until the camera said that the memory card was full, which was 79 of the highest res pics on my 256MB card. but when I view the card on my computer through the flash reader, the 79 pics only equal 91MB...what is going on? is the camera not able to utilize the whole card?

Hmmm, that is strange. I've shot around 135 pics on my 256mb card and still had room. You might want to try and reformat the card and see what happens. According to specs, you should be able to get around 154 pics.

I agree with reformatting the card. I've learned to 'format' rather than 'erase' my images once downloaded to my pc. I learned my lesson the hard way.

Make sure that you reformat the card in the camera, not on your computer!!!

thanks, I'll try that, but it might take me a little while to fill it up again.

Why wait until the card is full? Why not download what you have now to your computer and then, reformat it?
