Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from Amazon.com or Buy.com
2
Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
#3
Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
4
In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
5
Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
6
Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

Kodak camera won't format sd card


Your older camera can only use 2GB or less standard SD card. It can not be used with the new 4GB or higher SDHC cards. Fortunately, 2GB cards are relatively inexpensive these days, and may be found on Amazon if your local store no longer carries them.

If you've tried to format the cards in the camera and it failed, it's probably because the cards are SDHC cards instead of SD. With a camera as old as yours, SDHC cards hadn't come out yet.

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.

How do I format a 4MB SDHC card for this camera


"SD and MMC flash memory cards marketed by Kodak, Kingston, Sandisk, PNY and other flash-memory card manufacturers will work with the EasyShare C643. The digital camera supports standard MMC cards and SD (secure digital) cards, but not SD High-Capacity (SDHC) or SD Extended Capacity (SDXC) cards."

It will not format a 4gb SanDisk SD card


Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. The DX6490 works with SD cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to go with SD cards 2GB and smaller.

What is the sd card compacity limit for the DX6490. I have a 8 gigbite sd card and it just keeps asking me to format it. After formating it i put it in a card reader and it still has the pictures i put on...


The DX6490 accepts SD cards, which top out at 2GB. Cards bigger than that are technically SDHC cards. While SDHC cards will fit into SD slots, they will not work. SD cards will work in SDHC devices, though. So, you're limited to 2GB.

It's a hardware thing, which no amount of firmware updating can change.
