Question about Kodak EasyShare C743 Digital Camera

Won't format new memory card

Hello. I have a Kodak EasyShare C743 camera. I purchased a SanDisk 4GB SDHC memory card. When I insert the card, the camera tells me it needs formatting. When I tell it to go ahead and do it, it gives me a message saying that it is formatting, but then goes back to the first screen and tells me the card needs formatting again. Any help will be appreciated. Do I have an incompatible card?

Your camera is not SDHC compatible. It will only support standard SD cards. Sorry.

I hope this helps.

Your camera was designed before the SDHC format came out. Sorry, your camera can only use standard SD cards, those usually 2GB or less. An SDHC card will not be recognized properly by your camera. If you really want to use a 4GB card, do a Google search for SD and "non hc", with the non hc in quotes. Believe that Transcend makes one.

The P880 works with MMC and SD cards. Your new 4GB card is an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work. The camera is limited to working with cards 2GB and smaller.

My Kodak EasyShare V530, won't accept a memory card, you insert a memory card, and it doesn't even acknowledge that there is a memory card inserted.


I bet the memory card that you're inserting is a brand new 4GB SDHC card (your camera can only use 2GB or less standard SD cards). There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". The most common is trying to use a 4GB or higher SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Other causes include problems with the tiny slide switch on the side of the card, or the electrical contact switch internal to the camera. The problem may also arise from simple formatting problems if the card has never been formatted in the camera (note that this will also erase the card). Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link.

I purchased a new memory card (sandisk sdhc ) it will not format?


Get a new camera :-)

Seriously, the Z740 is designed to work with SD cards, not SDHC cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the camera, they will not work. You need to buy SD cards 2GB and smaller.

The C743 works with MMC and SD cards, not with SDHC card. Your 4GB card will not work in it. You can return it or, if you have another device which can use SDHC cards, keep it.

4gb sandisk sdhc card


I think the C330 is not compatible with the SDHC cards.
The spec for the SD card format is going to 2GB but the Kodak C330 not compatible with 2 GB SD memory cards.

Click

But try an firmware upgrade.
Why download firmware version 1.07?
This firmware version improves memory card compatibility and provides general performance updates.

Memory Card required formatting


Hello

  • Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from Amazon.com or Buy.com
  • 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
  • 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  • 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  • 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
  • 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.
