The used capacity of my 1GB SD Card shows 139 MB used, with 832 MB Free when properties are displayed on my P.C. However I am unable to add any more photos to the SD Card via the P.C. unless I remove some of the photos already on the card. Can anyone suggest why with 832 MB free why more photos cannot be added to the SD Card. Is there any difference in formatting a SD Card in a PC and allowing a camera format a SD Card?
Are the files being stored in the root directory of the SD card or into a folder off the root directory? If it is the former it might be that you have reached the limit on the NUMBER of files that can be stored in the root directory.
Thanks guys, I put the SD Card into my Canon camera and used the format command in the camera. All the photos I had transferred from my PC to the SD Card were removed, and SD card showed in Properties the full 971 MB and no files when in the PC. I took 2 photos with the camera and the were stored in a folder called Canon_ DC. I then started transferring photos from my PC to the SD Card via an USB adaptor as before, and I now have more files on the SD Card than before. The transferrd file were stored individually and outside the Canon_DC Folder. So it looks as if allowing the Canon Camera format the SD Card has solved the problem, I will close this query when I have transferred a reasonable number of photos and hopefully still have free space on the SD Card. Thanks again.

Mr Mistoffelees Re email address. It was a mistake that I failed to correct. When I was putting 'williamj' in the title my email address came up automatically, as both started with a 'w' and I failed to correct the miatake. Thanks for the advice.
