512Mb SD Card is telling me it needs reformatting

I have a Kodak brand 512Mb SD Card that I was using in a Kodak V603 digital camera. One day it told me that the disk needed reformatting. I've tried it in other cameras, on a PC, cleaned the contacts. Nothing. I can't read anything on the disk - which is a problem because all my daughters graduation pictures are there. Help!

Re: 512Mb SD Card is telling me it needs reformatting

I had a different camera that this happened with, luckily I didn't have alot of pictures of any importance on the card., I took the card to a photo store and they could not even tell me what was wrong with it. Maybe you could try that, just bring it to a camera store, I hope they can help you.

If you just purchased this camera, you can try phoning place of purchase or make a trip there. It sounds as if the software in camera may be messed up.

I am using a sd card ,which I used with my Samsung digital camera , and the kodak is telling me to format the card. When I try to reformat the card nothing happen it keep going to screen to reformat card....

If the card is more than 1GB it is probably an SDHC card. 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.

I don't think anybody makes SD cards that small anymore. I haven't seen one smaller than 512MB in at least a year. However, the C330 will use any SD card, so you should be able to find1GB or 2GB SD cards at just about any department, electronics, or office-supply store. Many drugstores and supermarkets also carry them. Just be sure you get an SD card, not an SDHC card, as SDHC cards will not work in the C330.

Z612 will not format an SD card... 1GB??? Also battery life is very short... have used Kodak battery and a LENMAR DLK8000. And more... lens does not extend when camera turned on! Best Buy has had the...

Your camera has been designed to work with SD cards up to 1GB but in my experience there are often compatibility issues with different brands of SD cards especially when they're right on the limit of what the camera can handle.

You've said what batteries you've tried, but they will not affect how your camera behaves when trying to format an SD card.

I'd recommend first trying to reformat the card in an external reader (you may have to try reformatting in FAT 16 and then in FAT32 to see if it makes a difference: alternatively contact Kodak to ask which one to use as they don't say which in the published technical specs for your model). If this doesn't work then my next suggestion is to try a previously unused (i.e new) example of another brand of SD card; as they're so cheap you may want to do that anyway. You're safest to assume that a Kodak branded card will work, and SanDisk are also very widely compatible on "problem" devices. If either of these cards do not work then you'll find that the manufacturers are both very supportive in trying to resolve your issue, although ultimately you may discover that you actually have a faulty camera.

Faulty SD card

First try formatting the memory card in your PC and then try again. If that fails, purchase a new memory card of a different brand / manufacturer.
