    same exact problem. I even put card in my laptop and formatted it with no problems but when I returned it to my camera, it indicated that formatting was required and "memory card unusable".

    I also purchased a new memory card and cannot get it to format. I cannot find any information about how to format it either. This is with the Kodak EasyShare C875.

Hi there

  • 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 or
  • 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.

    I have brought a new 8gb memory card for it when i insert it it says it needs to format it i click yes then it trys to format but then says the card is unusable

    The C533 works with MMC and SD cards. Your new 8GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to use MMC or SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

    Try turning the camera off and then back on.Ensure that the memory card is the proper type for the camera. If the memory card is the proper type, try re- formatting the card using the Format option in the Delete sub-menu of the Playback Menu. If it will not format, it is probably corrupted. Replace the memory card

    My kodak easysharecamera keeps saying the memory card needs to be

    I'm having the exact same problem! I have formatted 2 SD cards on the computer and it still didn't work. Every time I've tried formatting on the camera, it says it is and then says again that it needs to be formatted. I even went out and bought a whole new Kodak SD card, thinking I just needed a Kodak one, but no luck.
    I can't help, but I was just wondering if you ever got the problem solved because I really would like to know.

    I have a Kodak easyshare LS443 and when I put in a new picture memory card (bought two of them already), after it says 'format memory card' and I do, it just keeps saying 'reading memory card' and nothing...


    Make sure that the memory card you used is compatible w/ your camera. If same issue persists after using the compatible card, camera is unable to detect the memory card. Card compartment is defective. call 1.800.235.6325 for repair.
