Camera/computer say memory card "needs to be formatted".....

I have a 1 GB memory card for my camera. Last night i was taking pictures with it, and it was working perfectly fine. Then all of a sudden a message popped up saying "memory card requires formatting" with 2 options; CONTINUE or CANCEL. If I press continue it says "formatting will delete everything on memory card" I do not want to lose the pictures that are already on it.... They are very important to me. Please help!!

I would save your pictures on to a disc, then re-format the card.

Hi,
Some cameras can not handle 2 GB and larger memory cards..I believe this could be the case for you..I am afraid if it does not FORMAT it ,you can not use it to take a picture either..
Just for testing purposes,if you cant FORMAT in the camera, take the card out and try to format it on your computer (you may need Memory Card Reader " THAT COMPATIBLE WITH YOUR MEMORY CARD.THIS ..As an example of this unit pls visit the URL below....you can buy it any electronic Market too...

What size memory card does the kodak easyshare cx6200 take?


The internal memory for this camera is 8 MB.

The manual indicates using memory cards of size 8 to 128 MB, so this is an early SD memory camera, following the original SD standard. Do not try SDHC or SDXC cards. The camera will support a 1 GB card. It *might* support a 2 or 4 GB card, but since this is a 2 Mpixel camera, a 512 MB or 1 GB card will allow you to save thousands of jpeg format pictures.

I hope you didn't format the card because that erases the pics forever. You could get a separate card reader and try to download them that way. You could take the card to a store like Walmart and plug the card into one of their picture making machines. When your pics show up, you can print them or even make a cd of them.

We insert a memory chip into our Kodak EasyShare C190 camera. The read-out informs us that the memory card requires formatting. We click on "OK." The camera goes into a "formatting" mode, then informs us...


Your camera is only supporting SD/MMC Cards (up to 2 GB) and KODAK SDHC Cards (up to 8 GB).
The card that you currently have might be faulty. Please try another card.
You might also need to switch the camera over to saving pictures directly onto the SD card.1: Menu, Cam settings, Chose AUTO or SD card option Press OK
Note: If the SD card isn't in the camera or is unreadable the camera will automatically go back to saving you taken pictures on the internal memory.

Memory card formatting


Unfortunately, there is no way to format your card without losing any saved pictures. Sometimes, if you insert your card into other cameras or printing kiosks at walgreens or target, it will work. it's a long shot though. Chances are, you may have to lose your saved pictures :(

Fuji Finepix XD card was being used last night


When you recieve a "Card Error" or "Card Not Initialized" message, this indicates that your memory may be temporarily corrupted. This can be due to not formatting your memory card on a consistent basis. Most consumers will use the "delete all" feature and continue to take pictures. By doing this, the file format of the card may become unstable.

We recommend formatting your memory card in your camera after saving the images from your previous shooting session. Once a memory card is formatted, the images will not be recoverable.

Memory card problem


Assuming your camera acts like a removable drive when connected to the PC try the following.

  1. Right click the removable drive(your camera) in my computer and go properties>tools>error checking>tick both boxes>ok
  2. Wait till it finishes and check if you can now view the contents of the card. And copy to safe place straight away.
  3. Try http://www.officerecovery.com/freeundelete/ to recover any deleted files or fragments of damaged files.
  4. Let me know if any of this works.
