LEXAR 4GB SD MEMORY CARD FORMAT??

I bought a new SD card for more memory. The problem is
the card will not format. It keeps giving the message that the
memory card requires formatting and I hit continue. Then it's
shows the time capsule & says it's formatting for a few seconds.
Finally it goes back to Memory Card requires formatting. ?????

    I have the same issue with three of my SD chips. I expect that it's a microsoft issue. If anyone has solved - please share.

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.

Loaded new memory card, and screen reads memory card error-memory card locked. Removed new card from camera, nnlocked card, inserted card again, but received same message. Please advise.


I'm guessing you bought a new 4GB SDHC card. Although it looks exactly the same as a standard SD card, the format the card uses is very different. If your camera is more than a few couple years old, it's likely it was designed before the SDHC format came out. Sorry, but a SDHC card will not work with older cameras.
For older cameras, you'll need to use standard SD cards (usually those 2GB or less). But if you really want to use a 4GB card, do a Google search for 4GB SD "non HC", with the non HC in quotes. Believe Transcend makes one.

I have a NV10, it will not format the lexar 4GB SDHC memory card I bought, all it says is format error


The NV10 will not accept SDHC type memory cards. The largest card you will find it takes is a 2GB card of the SD type (not SDHC). The camera is not SDHC compliant, unfortunately. If you can return the 4GB Lexar, swap it for a 2GB of the non-SDHC variety. If this answers your question fully, please rate the solution accordingly. Thanks

Tried to unlock Lexar SD 2GB and Lexar SDHC 4 GB - No luck


First of all, the 4GB card will never be able to work in your camera. Check on its face. It likely says SDHC, and SDHC cards as this format came out after your camera was designed (I know it looks exactly like a normal SD card, but it's not).

Now the 2GB card should work with your camera as it is a standard SD card. Remove the card from your camera. Look on the side of the card for the tiny slide switch, and slide it to the other "unlocked" position. Reinsert it in the camera, and see if that corrects the problem.
