An information processing apparatus, which can expand a part of a function by the addition of software, enables the development of additional software that does not depend on the firmware version. The information processing apparatus manages a memory using, for example, a Next Fit method and may reduce memory fragmentation. A reduction in memory fragmentation may be performed before and after a photograph is taken in a camera using a flash memory, or before or after recording or erasing is performed. Also described are a program loader, binding of common data, startup routines, copying and erasing of files, an abstract input/output port, hook management software, counting programs for power consumption control, a three-layer shutdown process, and detection and display of errors.
