Customer: Have pictures on card on can not open to take more.


I'm sorry about the issue. Can you please turn off your camera, then take out the memory card from the camera. Then make sure the switch on the memory card is not in the Locked position. Then re-insert the memory card to the camera, then turn on the camera. Now, it should let you take more pictures.
