I have some pictures on my Kodak DX7630 that I just cannot delete. I have tried everything that I can by reading the literature that comes with the camera but somehow these pictures are stuck on there. The problem is that whenever I download pictures taken I have to make sure I delete these pictures from the album every time. Does anyone know how to get rid of these pictures that have some how entrenched themselves in my camera?

While not familiar with your model, I may be able to give you some things to try. Most cameras have a way to lock pictures so they won't be deleted. It is likely that this is what occurred. If you are unable to uncheck the flag, you may be able to delete them by formatting the card. This is usually one of the first items in the menu when you are in the review pictures mode.

I have already tried that and it didn't work, I have also tried accessing the camera through the software on the PC. But still no luck, thanks for your suggestion though, Cheers.

Are the images on the camera's internal memory or on the SD card?? If they are on the SD card, try putting the card in a card reader and performing a format. If not on the card, they are on your camera's internal memory. There should be some menu that allows you to access the camera's memory. Can you view the files on the lcd?? If so, I would think the camera has a delete button, so you could try manually deleting them. Then set the camera to auto for storage selection, and the cam will write to the card before using internal memory. If none of that works, the camera's internal memory could be corrupted, in which case, if you use a card reader you'll be able to download the images from the card without worrying about those images in the internal memory.

I'd format *both* the internal memory and your memory card and that should get rid of them. Scroll down to the Format section on this page of your camera's user guide and you'll see the available options that let you Format your Internal Memory and your Memory Card from the Setup menu).

Just a thought- have you checked the write protect tab on your SD card? This didn't occur to me at first, because I only use CF.
