Red face Freeing up memory on memory card

Please Login to Remove!

I'm looking for a way to free up some space on my memory card. I deleted pictures and videos, but am still taking up 948 MB of 968 MB.

Anyone know of anything else that goes on Memory cards other than media and messages??

Thanks!

Messages don't go on the memory card. Pictures, videos, music, ringtones, documents and voice notes can go on the memory card. Also content like eBooks and Slacker radio cached stations. The only way to free up space is to delete some of those things.

Welcome to the forum, also.

And you will never get the full 1GB of storage space the card advertises.

Quick question, are you sure you aren't mis-reading the numbers?
To delete pics and videos off the card and still be using 948MB seems strange.

Do you mean you have 948 out of 968 FREE?
