Try formatting them in a computer. There is a possibility that the cards are not compatible with your camera. Especially if they are SDHC cards with a capacity of 4GB or more. You may need to format them and partition it as 2GB for your camera to recognize them.

Hi,
You need to format the card.
Insert the memory card into the system and this will be displayed as the mass storage device in my computer. Right click over the removable disk and then click format. It will format the memory card.
Then insert the memory card into the camera. Now the camera will not show the error message.

Hope this helps.

Try these: 1. Go into the camera menu and find "reset" and follow the on-screen instructions. 2. With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" and follow the on-screen instructions. 3. Insert your new, blank memory card and do the "format" thing again.

Choose YES for the Format option. Allow it to finish. Should work fine then.
Possible defective card if does not work after full format. Do not use any "quick format" option.
First time must be FULL format.

Keeps saying card not initialized why ?


It just means that you need to format a new card in the camera before it will work properly. Go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions.

Hi I just purchased a new memory card for my Kodak C160 CAMERA AND when I took pic's for E-Bay and it says that the card has to be formated. What does that mean and how do I make it work? Thanks in...


Formatting erases the card and optimizes it for a particular camera system. If you already have pics on the card, you need to download them using a card reader first. Then, insert the card into the camera, go into the menu and find "format" and follow the on-screen instructions.

I can't access current photos from memory card, only old photos show up stored in built in memory. Also can not access "copy" from the menu, and nothing will download to my computer. All this worked fine...


"copy" is accessed from the playback menu. If that isn't available, decide if the pics stored in the internal memory are important. If not, format the camera with no memory card inserted to erase the internal memory. If you need those pics, then download them to your computer first...then format. Next, go into the menu and find "reset"..follow the on-screen instructions. Then, purchase an inexpensive card reader and download the pics from your memory card to your computer.(and promise yourself to use the card reader from now on...and remember that after downloading, use the "safely remove hardware" icon in the bottom right of your computer screen...don't just yank out the reader!). Finally, format the card in your camera and promise yourself never to use the internal memory again.
