    same this is wrong with mine. I have the 2 gig sd card and it worked well. but now that I bought the 4 gig, it doesn't work at all.

    I have this problem too! Its awful! I've tried to buy as many non-HC cards as I can but they are pretty scarce. I just bought this camera not too long ago and it would be a total waste to buy a new one just because I can't get memory cards to work in it!

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.

    Just bought a Kodak 4gb memory card, and camera says it needs to be formated, and I stick the card in and it says it can't be formatted


    The Z612 uses MMC and SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible. You need to use cards 2GB and smaller.

    When i install team micro sdhc 4gb memory card in kodak easyshare z612 it says format .i select format but it keeps asking to format or cancell


    First check make sure the SDHC card is unlocked I'll provide a diagram for that also I just checked your camera's memory capacity and it's only good for a 1 gig SD card which if using an SDHC memory card might go to 1.5 stretch to 2gig maybe but not a 4gig. My first impression is you got to much memory card for the camera. You might be able to go to the Kodak site and download updated firmware to allow the camera to function with the larger card but that's a maybe as well.
    Here are the diagrams

    I purchased a PNY 4GB SDHC memory card to use with my Kodak EasyShare Z612. The camera indicates formatting required. How do I format or are they compatible?


    You simply insert the memory into the camera, switch it on, go to the menu and then scroll through to Format and then accept. This will then take a few minutes and format the memory for use in the camera. Make sure that the batteries are fully charged before doing this.

    Cant get my camera to format a memory card


    agreeing with fixer1950. This model is in fact just designed for up to 2GB SD or MMC card.

    When Easyshare one was released, 4gb SDHC was not yet created. You will always get the "memory card requires formatting" (looping until you get a file sys error msg) if you will keep on trying to use the 4gb.

    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.
