I have a SanDisk Pixtor 32GB SDHC card that I'm using in my Sony A6000. Both are new as of May. Over the last month or so, I have had increasing issues with what I am assuming is the memory card. I've been talking a lot of pictures and my card filled up which I think is when the issue started. I've deleted pictures off of it but still have recurring problems. The red "reading memory card" light comes on when I am scrolling through pictures or trying to delete them. This causes the camera to essentially freeze and slow down to unusable speeds. It also seems to occassionally corrupt pictures during this process. I also am starting to have problems moving the pictures over from my camera to my mac computer. Again, it seems to freeze and then after a period of time where nothing transfers, it says the process as failed. I am doing extended traveling and so can't get help from a store back home. Is there anything I can do about this? I need to at least be able to retrieve existing pictures. Does the memory card just need to be replaced? Thanks for any advice.

Regardless of whether you see an error message on the Sony camera's LCD screen, you can use the tips listed here to troubleshoot your Sony DSLR camera.
Battery issues. Because the Sony DSLR camera makes use of a larger battery pack than you’d find with a point and shoot camera, it can be a tighter fit to insert the battery pack. If you’re having problems inserting the battery pack, use the edge of the pack to move the lock lever mechanism out of the way, allowing the battery pack to slide more easily into the compartment.
