I took a lot of photos and videos on my HTC Android. The SD card said it was full so I deleted all the photos and videos by removing them from the DCIM folder. It still says the card is full and I cannot take any photos or videos. I can't work out how to fix this or where it thinks its full. Are the photos and videos stored anywhere else?

The files are probably cached in hidden files. Removing everything from the sd card and backup to a PC if you have anything important. You can then format the sd card from the phone or while plugged into the computer to completely erase all data. Move whatever information you want back onto your phone and you'll be good to go.
