    This may be because a file is corrupted and unreadable...this happens for several reasons...trying to remove card whilst the camera is reading to it...opening card door during read write...failing battery whilst read write...if you have a corrupted card..try the HPUSB card utility which you can google and is free..this will correct the file system in a Ryder to format it...but you MUST find out what the correct file system is...usually Fat32 with cluster size of 1024 but in most cases ..once you have formatted with the hpusb you can then reformat on the should always format any card via camera before use as the cluster sizes can be confusing if formatted via pc.

Which kind of wrong formats your SD memory card has been detected as inside your digital camera? Is it in RAW format? How does it show on your PC? Is it still displayed as RAW file system there? If so, also do not panic! The wrong SD memory card file system format often can be fixed by simple formatting process. However, before you do any formatting process there, you are supposed to back up your card data well in case of losing important photos or other stuffs.
What you need now to recover data from this not formatted SD card is RAW file system SD memory card data recovery software.
Merely download and run a related data recovery tool to scan your card and take all possible photos and files back.
Best Wishes!

When i turn my camera on it says i need to format the SD card so i hit okay then it deletes all my pictures and says unable to format

The contacts on the card are dirty. Insert and remove the card several times and try it again. You can recover pictures off an erased card. Google SD card file recovery software.

Will not recognise sd card

Is the SD slide protection switch unlocked? You will also need to format the memory card before it will work in your digital camara. Make sure the memory is compatible with your camara (too much memory and it won't work)

Make sure the SD card is unlocked. There's a tiny switch on the side. Put it into the camera. Under storage, when you select the card, also select format.

SD card keeps popping up when inserted in cama. SD card will not stay down in camara Says it needs to be formatted. It will not format. Never has this problem before How can I fix this

The SD slot of the camera got damage somehow. The SD slot contains thin copper prongs that locks the card in place and comes in contact with the surface of the card. If these prongs are damaged, then it cause a read failure of the camera.
