    Small amount of internal memory. Just nine 5mpix photos could be stored there.

    I cant restart default settings because camera screen is broken. That is why I want to delete these photos before bring it to replace

    Connect it to the pc, select the pictures to be imported, make sure you select the "delete files after copy" option.
