Your camera has no support for SDHC, only SD - this in essence means you can put a maximum of 2gb card.

Good luck.

Your camera will accept a maximum SD card capacity of 2GB. It simply isn't capable of handling anything of a larger capacity and in particular is incompatible with the more technically advanced SDHC cards.

Your fix is to either replace your camera with a later model or to stick to using SD cards with a maximum 2GB capacity.

Have Kodak EasyShare Z730, how do i format for SDHC Card 4GB?


You don't. The Z730 works with MMC and SD cards, not with SDHC cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible. You need to use cards 2GB and smaller.

Purchased new memory card. camera screen said to format card, camera will not format card please isnsert another. new card is kodak 8gb sdhc. it works in a different kodak camera


The DX6490 works with MMC and SD cards. While an SDHC card will fit into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work. Some Kodak cameras can use SDHC cards, but the DX6490 is not one of them. You need to go with SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

CX7525. Inserted new 4gb sd card. Camera says it needs to be formatted. When I click on the "OK" button to format, it says "card needs to be formatted" again and again. Will not format...


There are no 4GB SD cards. "SD" cards larger than about 2GB are actually SDHC cards. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but they are slightly different electrically. Many cameras won't work with SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

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 just put in a new SD card in Kodak Z760, but it needs to be formatted. How do you format the card?


There is a function to format memory cards somewhere in the camera's setup menus, but this might not be the problem. Most cards come pre-formatted. If this card is more than 1GB it will be SDHC instead of SD. 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.

There is no reason not to try formatting the card, but if it won't format or isn't usable after formatting, then it may be incompatible.

Format sdhc card for Kodak EasyShare CX7430


According to the specs on the Kodak web site, the CX7430 uses SD cards, not SDHC cards. While SDHC cards will fit into SD devices, there are hardware differences that keep them from working. You need to use SD cards 2GB and smaller.

I have a Kodak Easyshare Z740 & we just purchased an 8gb sdhc SanDisk & it keeps saying it needs to be formatted it says everything will be deleted and then goes back to disk needs to be formatted...


You need to buy an SD card. the Z740 works with SD and MMC cards, not SDHC cards. While SDHC cards will fit into an SD slot, there are hardware differences which keep them from working. SD cards will work in SDHC devices but not the other way around.

Again, you need to use SD cards, which max out at 2GB. Anything larger is an SDHC card, which does not work in your camera.

The recommended card for your camera are those SDHC type or 2GB-16 GB SDHC card, try to use at least 2 SDHC card if this failed it means the memory card reader of your camera is already defective. Just in case this will happen try to contact Kodak at 1 800 235 6325 ext 12.

My Kodak P850 do not accept SD cards 4 or 8GB, error message state that memory must be replaced. No way to format the SD in camera. How can I do that camera accept the SD card


Technically speaking, SD cards only go up to 2GB. (Actually, some very rare 4GB SD cards exist, but I doubt you have one of those.) Cards 4GB and up are SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) cards. Your camera was designed before the SDHC specs, and thus is not compatible with SDHC cards. This is not something that can be changed in firmware, since there is a hardware compatibility issue.

SDHC devices will accept SD cards, but the opposite does not hold true. SD devices will not accept SDHC cards.
