Possible you have a bad card. Try getting a new card and formatting it. The cards that come with the cameras are cheaply made and usually don't last very long anyways.

When i turn on my camera it says the memory card needs formatting i follow the instructions but it doesnt work and keeps saying to format the memory card. this happens over and over and i cannot take...


To understand the photo loss situation, consider a scenario: You format a memory card in Digital Camera, and start to capture some pictures. However, while capturing pictures, your camera shuts down due to low battery. Now, after recharging battery, when you try to access those photograph on the card, you receive the following error message on camera screen:

The Card requires formatting: Additionally, the camera is unable to capture any new photographs.

The main cause for the above error message is corruption of memory card due to conking of battery while a read/write operation was running.

These memory card needs to be formatted before you save any new pictures. It is always a good practice to take backup of card and format it before use. This enables you to fight with any damage done to the memory card and to erase the old data saved on the card. However, the probability of card getting corrupted again (after you have saved new data) still exists.

First try formating with an external SD Card reader connected at PC and test it.

I have bought new camera, just tried it today and keeps saying error code 99? turn it off and back on and remove battery and reinstall, tried all of this and it keeps saying the same?


Error 99 is a catch basin for a number of problems I'm going to assume that because this is a new camera that you didn't format the memory card. Formatting a memory card makes it function perfectly with the camera it's being used in. Also after pictures have been downloaded to the computer you need to format the memory card, cleaning all the old pictures off the card and giving you a fresh clean medium to use to put new pictures on. You will see also that there is this little handy garbage can icon and this is or should be used only when you find you need more space on the card when you are shooting and not the way to clear the card. The memory card should always be formatted in the camera.

Memory card error?


Hi, Check if other memory card is working on your camera. This is one way of checking if your memory card if still working or there is an issue wither the camera. Formatting Memory card **you should always format a new memory card or one from which you wish to erase all images and other data. ** Please note that formatting a memory card erases all data, including protected images and other file types. 1. (Set up) Menu [Format]
2. Select [OK] and press FUNC SET button.
Low Level format, recommended by cannon
Select the [Low Level Format] when you think that the recording/reading speed of a memory card has dropped. A low level format may require 2 to 3 minutes with some memory cards.

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...


Hello,

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.


Thanks.

Panasonic Lumix will not read memory card.


Hi,

try formatting your cd card in your Fz. If it keeps telling you memory error, try using it in windows, put data on it, to see wether it can hold them and read them too.
Happeded to me once too, format did the job. Just format it in the camera, not your pc.

you may try some card recovery software, recommended asoftech photo recovery that helped me before.

If needed, you may do a quick format of the card, and then use asoftech photo recovery to recover files.

Problem with new memory card


Hi,

I read an article about the same problem.....
Ill tell you the information about it.....

There are few situations when you find that your memory card is not functioning as expected and instead of data, you are getting few error messages:

· “CARD ERROR”
· “ Memory Card Error”
· “Card Not Initialized”
· “Read Error”

Display of either error message forces the user to think of solution as the affected memory card may be the house of the relevant digital data including photos, videos and audios.

Most of such error messages are curable through formatting the card.
As you said you have tried this already but no success......

So your card is suffering from the problem that the card is corrupt harshly.

This is the worst defect in the memory cards......So better get it changed..

The memory card corruption reveals that the data will remain inaccessible as formatting has failed to cure the issue. So the best deal would be to have photo recovery software. Photo recovery is also required in case of formatting success.
Picture recovery is quite practical through photo recovery software which benefits the users through their scanning ability and power to address each specific case of photo loss.........



Hope my info helps you.........
Thanx
