    I am unable to reformat a sdhc 16gb with windows does anyone know of a program that I can use to reformat to fat32

  • MikoLone Feb 26, 2009

    I can read from the disk. I can't delete from the disk. it is a 16GB SDHC card. The camera I use it cannot format it. Windows can't format it. Seems to still work because I can read the photos off of it.

    It seems to me that windows has somehow locked the files for writing or deleting. Is there a way to release them?

I know the pain, the card works, it could be formatted in the device you use it in (e.g. digital cam, PDA), yet it could not be formatted using SDFormatter.

The best fix is to not use a multi card reader. Use a pure SD card reader/writer.

Maybe to set the lock tab in between the locked and unlocked position might work too.

Hello is the card write protected? Have you locked it? Normally your operating system will tell you this.
Hope this helps,

Hey, I had the same problem. The card was unreadable, and couldn't format it.
Then I found out that Canon Ixus 75 has a "low format" function, and then I was able to get it to work again.

Sdhc unable to format write protected


SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.


Also, make sure the device in which you're trying to format the card is SDHC-compatible.

Pv-gs35 sdhc formatting win7


SD cards go up to 2GB in size. SDHC cards go from 4GB to 32GB.

The PV-GS35 works with SD cards, not with SDHC cards. Your 1GB and 2GB cards are SD cards. Your new 16GB card is an SDHC card. While SDHC cards fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work in devices not designed for them.

How to format SDHC card on Canon PowerShot


The PowerShot S1 doesn't take SDHC cards, only CF cards. If you're asking about some other camera, not all of the cameras deigned for SD cards take the higher-capacity SDHC cards.

SDHC card not working


Go tinto the camera's menu and format the SDHC memory card.
If this does not work then insert the SDHC memory card into an USB card reader and plug it into the USB port on your computer and it the computer detects it as an external storage device then format the SDHC memory card.
If the computer cannot detect this SDHC memory card then this memory card is faulty.

I've tried formatting a new san disk 4gb card and still reads "unable to use card" what do i do?


You haven't told us what kind of camera it is, but I can guess at the problem. There are two possibilities.

1. Your camera will only read SD cards, not SDHC cards. You've just bought a new memory card, not noticing that it was SDHC. The new cards don't work in your camera, not because they or the camera are broken, but because they're not compatible.

Cards up to 2Gb are generally SD. Cards over 8Gb have to be SDHC. 4Gb cards can be either SD or SDHC, but are almost always SDHC because they're cheaper. (I would avoid the rare, expensive, and problematic 4Gb SD cards.)

Your solution is to go find a 2Gb card, and be extra sure that it doesn't say "SDHC" on it. (If it does, it probably means that they made a 4Gb card, but there were some error locations and so they disabled half of it and packaged it as a cheap-brand 2Gb.)

2. You formatted the card NTFS, whereas the camera needs FAT32. You can format the card using Windows, but there is a complication: Windows defaults to "NTFS" when formatting, but memory cards normally use FAT32. Before you attempted this, you should have connect the card, and checked the 'properties' on the drive that appears. It probably said "FAT32". In this case, you could have gone ahead and formatted the card, but be sure that you chose "FAT32" from the drop-down list. If you format it NTFS, your camera won't be able to read it!

In this case your solution would be to format the card again, but using the FAT32 format.

You might find it useful to check your camera on dpreview (dot) com, and see if the memory card type is shown as just SD or SD/SDHC.

CX7525. Inserted new 4gb sd card. Camera says it needs to be formatted. When I click on the "OK" button to format, it says "card needs to be formatted" again and again. Will not format...


There are no 4GB SD cards. "SD" cards larger than about 2GB are actually SDHC cards. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but they are slightly different electrically. Many cameras won't work with SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

How do I format my SDHC card


First, you need to state the specific camera model, and also try to read the user's manual regarding on how to format your SDHC card properly. But most of the time it is simply done by inserting your SDHC card into your digital camera, switch it on. Go to the main menu then go to settings, and browse/scroll it until you find the option 'FORMAT MEMORY CARD'. Press okay and it will automatically format your SDHC memory card.

I just put in a new SD card in Kodak Z760, but it needs to be formatted. How do you format the card?


There is a function to format memory cards somewhere in the camera's setup menus, but this might not be the problem. Most cards come pre-formatted. If this card is more than 1GB it will be SDHC instead of SD. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but many cameras won't work with the SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

There is no reason not to try formatting the card, but if it won't format or isn't usable after formatting, then it may be incompatible.

The camera says I need to format my memory card and when I do so the screen reads Filesys errore00100, how can I fix this?


The card may be incompatible.

Memory cards have grown enormously in capacity in the last couple of years, and even relatively new cameras may not be able to cope with the memory size of the newest cards.

SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but many cameras won't work with the SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.
