    My Nikon D80 is saying full after seven pictures. I have a 2 GB memory card and usually take between 500 and 600 shots before it is full. I have done everything I know how. Any thoughts?

    go to your camera's menu and reformat the card and see if that works.

    Second that. Make sure the card isn't locked either.

    If all else fails, pull the battery with the card out.

    And just to emphasise, format the card in the camera, not with your computer.

    I always format the card after every download is completed and backed up. Don't "delete" the pictures, actually format the card.

    If you deleted the photos on the card on your computer, make sure you empty the trash. It won't actually release the space as free until you do.

    This is a rare possibility, but there could also be a separate folder, from say another camera, and that would explain it..Most likely scenario is that you didn't empty the trash.

    I also second this one... Very possible you used this card in another camera, which would have created a separate folder for you pictures. Your new camera doesn't "see" this folder, but instead just thinks the card is full.
