Formatting card of Lumix DMC FZ72

The first thing I would try is ejecting the memery card and reinserting it hoping he will prompt for a reformat
If your computer has a slot to accommodate the memery card you can also use your computer to reformat
Memory card readers are quite cheap and plugged directly into your computer

Try reformatting the SD Card. If you have a computer with an SD card slot, insert it in there, right click on the card, and click "Format..." If you use a Mac, use Disk Utility to format the card.

Im getting a Err 002 which means something is wrong with my CF. I have had it for 5 years and no problems until now. I tried to reformat but my camera will not let me into the menu option with the CF in...

I agree the problem is the CF card. I'd like to add that it must have several back to back corrupt files to be refusing formatting. As much as I teach/lecture not to do this I also agree that to save that card place it in a memory card reader and format the card in the computer. Check before hand to see if there are usable pictures and load them to a new file folder before formatting. Once formatting has been completed in the computer check that all pins are in correct and serviceable condition in the card reader slot in the camera before install it back into the camera. Then reformat the CF card in the camera. Each time pictures are downloaded to the computer a CF card should be formatted.
Deleting pictures just causes a huge amount of problems if done repeatedly in favor of formatting.
I'm including some diagrams to show where the formatting mode is located on your camera.
Best of luck
Hope this helps Happy New Year

Need to know what memory card can i purchase and where for kodak easy share c530 my camera is old haven't used much I have a 1.0gb sandisk can i use a 2gb sandisk.

I had a look and it seems 1GB is about the Maximum? yes Sandisk is a good brand. Frankly anything that works well is OK.
Buy a good brand of card ... SanDisk is my favorite.
Kodak would certainly be a good choice too.
Don't buy it on eBay, as there are too many counterfeit cards available on eBay.

A Tip:
If you use a card reader, you will need a SDHC card reader if you use a SDHC card.
Most older card readers can not read a SDHC card.

Tip number 2:
Always format a new card with the Camera before taking any pictures.
You will find how to format with the camera in the camera User Manual.

pny does not supply card readers w/memory cards-sandisk on certain cards includes reader because file format is different on sdhc cards -try downloading direct from camera w/usb or get a card reader that absolutley supports sdhc type cards-not all readers do!

Sd memory card not read by computer

Reformat the card from the camera. You didn't specify camera model but every digital camera has a menu to format media.

If you don't succeed try to connect your camera to the computer and read the photos.

If that doesn't succeed either take your camera to service.

Reformatting an SD memory cardf

You can format the card in your camera while not connected to your computer. In fact it's recommended to do so. Read your instruction book to find out how. It should be a selection available from your "menu" button when in image review mode. Select "low-level" or "full" format, not "quick" format (quick format is only good for erasing pictures).

XD card error

What happens, is the file is corrupted when the camera shuts down while saving the picture. If you have a card reader try saving the pictures on the computer using the reader. You may have to reformat the card (in the camera).
