Memory Card full?
So i updated to the newest OS a couple weeks ago and I went to open my camera a few days ago and got a message that said my memory card was full and to try deleting some pictures. so i deleted about 50-60 pictures and opened the camera and it told me i had "40 pictures remaining." After a battery pull, I opened the camera and it came up with the same error message of the card being full. So now if i want to take a picture i have to delete a few pictures each time in order to free up space. Is there something wrong with the new OS? Obviously this is really annoying because most times when I want to take a picture I don't have time to sit there and figure out which pics I want to delete in order to free up space. My phone has also been white-screening and crashing a lot lately. What can i do??

I would copy all your media card files to your computer (always nice to have a backup of those files anyway) and then 'format' the media card in your phone with the new OS. The new OS may require a different file structure on the media card and the 'format' will build that structure.
Then you can copy your pictures, music, etc back onto the media card into the proper file directories.
Good luck.Motorola Razr Maxx HD

We all know life ain't fair, why not admit it? Don't just sit around, go out and GET IT.

I'm sorry I don't mean to chime in here...but I'm having the exact same issue...I did check the settings and they are all set for everything to go to memory card...I have a 2gb scan disk card in...is that big or not? The ones it asks me to delete are not on the card and there may be like maybe 20 of them...How do I know what os I have...I can't remember if I upgraded or not...~DoeZ~

A 2 GB Media Card is pretty small. I would recommend 8GB minimum.
You should move ALL the pictures from the device memory to the media card.
You should always know what device OS you currently have. Go to Options > About to check. Read the third line.

Quick fix for this, mount the phone to a laptop and browse the memory card, you're going to see these large temp files that are 100+mb in size that are taking up ALL your space, delete those.
Apparently whenever your phone crashes it stores all the data into these temp files but never removes them.
I've had this happen every 6 months or so, delete them and eject your phone and you're good as new.
