Deleting memory card photos on computer; picture estimate doesn't change?
Jun 23, 2012

I have 800 photos on my memory card, my NEX-5N estimates I can take 1200 more. I want to delete a bunch. I put the memory card into my SD card reader in my computer and delete 200 photos. I now have 600 photos on my memory card, but my camera still says I can only take 1200 more (rather than 1400).

I know this can be solved by formatting the memory card, but doing it every time becomes a pain. It seems like deleting photos isn't freeing up space for whatever reason. Is there any possible solution?

I am running Snow Leopard.

Sony Alpha NEX-5N
