Hi and welcome to FixYa.

I'm not sure about your particular instance, but this can happen if you change up cameras or use a card reader.

As for being unable read the memory card, sometimes the card can be switched off by accident. Turn off the camera and remove the card. Look at the side of the card and there will be a little switch. One end says locked (or shows a little picture of a locked lock) and the other end says unlocked (or, shows a little picture of an unlocked lock). Just move the switch to unlocked.
Try that, and let me know with a comment if that doesn't work, othewise, thanks for coming to FixYa!

Hi there
The card may still be in write protect mode, take the card out and unlock it, it will be at the side of the card like this memory card problem - 59a6de4.jpg .
Put it back into the camera and try to format it again, if it still does the same thing the card itself maybe damaged.


Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

Hope you have this figure out if not here goes. Sounds as if the camera is caught in a feed back loop. As long as you have down loaded and saved your images on the computer go ahead and format the card. When it says delete everything on the card select OK and click the start button everyone is happy again. By the way all new card and card after doenloading to the computer should be formatted in the camera. Never format in the computer and deleting images one by one is just a great way to totally mess up a memory card's mind. Format, Format

Memory card needs formatted is displayed on the screen. Deleted the pictures and it still comes up. Tried to take more pictures and the memory card would not hold. Is there something wrong with the camera...


I assume you have an SD card. If it's bigger than 2GB then it's actually an SDHC card and will not work in the ZD710.

No, there doesn't seem to be anything wrong. The card just needs to be formatted. In any mode press the Menu button. Press right-arrow to select the Setup tab (camera and wrench) then press OK. Press up/down-arrow to select "Format" then press OK.

Make sure you format the memory card. It's okay to format the internal memory, of course, but your current problem appears to be that the card needs to be formatted.

Hello my friend.

Try this tool which you can download clicking here.

It can solve your formatting problem.

- Download the file.
- Plug your memory card into your PC.
- Run the "exe" file that you downloaded.
- On the program menu select your device (memory card).
- Select FAT32 as file system.
- You may give a valid volume label.
- Uncheck the "Quick Format" option.
- Then start formatting your memory card clicking the start button.

This formatting will delete all the files in your memory card.

Hope this helps.

How did my pictures get deleted by formatting the card?


when you format something it deletes everything leaving it how it came from the factory, it's possible that you had corrupted files and the camera advised to format, next time cancel

Sorry, but a SDHC card will not work with your camera. Although it looks exactly the same as a standard SD card, the format the card uses is very differnet. Unfortunately your camera was designed before the SDHC format came out.

You'll need to instead purchase a standard SD card (those that are 2GB or less). Forunately these are very inexpensive these days, with 2GB cards going for around $6 with shipping:

When i turn the camera on....it saids memory card requires formatting. then continues to say formatting will delete everything on memory card. i press continue and nothing happens. goes back to say memory...


Use a computer with memory card reader, and read the card using a computer.

If the computer says the same and does not read the card, then the pictures inside the card are usually lost.

If computer instead does read the card, then transfer all picture on computer using the memory card reader, and format the card using complete formatting.

If you need to use the camera tonight, then buy a spare memory card.
If the camera returns same error on different card, then you may have a faulty memory card slot, but that is quite uncommon.

Cards not working with camera


If you used the SD/MMC memory card in another brand of camera or device, you may need to format the card in your new EasyShare digital camera. (You may have noticed a "Memory Card Needs Formatting" message when you inserted the card.) CAUTION: Formatting deletes all pictures and videos, including those that are protected. Removing a card during formatting may damage the card. To format the SD/MMC memory card or the internal memory of the camera: Transfer images to the computer before formatting the memory card. Press the camera Menu button. Highlight SETUP MENU, and then press the OK button. Highlight FORMAT, and then press the OK button. Highlight an option - MEMORY CARD (deletes everything on the card), CANCEL (exits without formatting), or INTERNAL MEMORY (deletes everything in internal memory). Press the OK button. Highlight Continue, and then press the OK button. Wait until formatting is finished before removing the card. When formatting is complete, the SETUP MENU is displayed. Press the Menu button to exit the menu.
