Hi,

An alternative to formatting in the camera is to format the memory card with the use of a memory card reader attached to a PC. Some computers have built-in memory card slots while others would need an external device that plugs into the USB port such as this. Either way, the PC would read it as an external storage device. Doing a right click would allow you choices including format. Pls remember to format it using FAT32.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Remove the memory card then try to format the camera ,if this fails then try this

  1. Open the Battery/Memory card door on the camera.
  2. Remove the batteries and optional memory card from the camera.
  3. Wait 15 seconds.
  4. Re-insert the batteries into the camera, but not the memory card.
  5. Try turning the camera on ..and then try to format..
Please let know the results :

Good luck...

Check first that the memory car does not have the write protection lock on.

That is probably the reason why the camera is not formatting.

You remove the write protection by sliding a tab at the side of a memory card, try also an alternative memory card, the card may be defective.

Card format problems


The first thing you will have to check the card. There is slot on the card that contains a switch. This will lock the card so that it is write-protected. This will cause the unsupported card error.

If the card looks fine, try a card reader just to confirm that the card has not been corrupted.

If the card is functional and you can read its contents from the PC or another SD-slot device, then the issue is your camera. The slot contains thin copper prongs that comes in contact the copper surface on the back of the SD card. If the prongs are bent or damage, then the camera cannot read your card.
