Question about Kodak EasyShare One Digital Camera
When my son goes to try and take a picture, it says memory card needs to be formatted, do you want to format? He presses continue (meaning yes) and then it says can't read memory card?! he got the camera for Xmas and has taken pics and/or movies before this occassion?? Please advise. Thanks
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!

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 .
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!!
