SOURCE: Memory card

If the card has not been formatted to remove data, it may have info that is not compatible between your old and new cameras.

If you have a USB card reader, place the card in it and re-format it.

If that doesn't work, then the card may be faulty.

It can solve your formatting problem.

- Download the file.

- Run the "exe" file that you downloaded.
- On the program menu select your device (memory card).

- You may give a valid volume label.
- Uncheck the "Quick Format" option.
- Then start formatting your memory card clicking the start button.

This formatting will delete all the files in your memory card.

Format a new sd memory card ?


Memory cards need to be formatted before use. Please refer to your camera manual for instructions.

Your camera may not work with 8GB SDHC cards, only with SD cards 2GB or smaller. Such cameras will report a card error and/or request formatting if you try to use an SDHC card.

If you require further assistance, please add a comment to this question and specify the model of your Kodak EasyShare camera.

Just installed a new memory card in my powershot A430 and the camera says memory card error, card is locked. how do I unlock?


What type and size memory card? The A430 works with SD cards. It won't work with SDHC cards.

SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

My c703 won't format a new memory card. The old memory card is full (2GB), but I've tried two NEW Lexar 4GB cards and neither will format. Help!


Hi, The reason neither 4GB card will format is because that camera is only able to support, at most, a 2GB card. I'd suggest returning the 4GB card and getting another 2GB one.

When i take a picture it tells me that the memory is full and i have installed a new memory card. The camera is new


I will assume that this camera is using a SD card as there is no make or model shown. All new memory cards need to be formatted to the camera so the camera can read the card. Also SD cards have a lock on the side it's a little sliding switch that can be very easily pushed to the lock side while installing the memory card here is a diagram of the lock and unlock position of this card.

Just purchased and installed SD memory card and the camera says memory card is unusable (Insert new memory card)


A bunch of stuff could be happening. First did you format the new card if not see if it can be formatted to the camera. if not then you will need to download the newest updates for that camera from the Kodak web site. For example the camera is set )internally) to accept a 1gig card and you installed a 2gig card it won't recognize the card until the camera firmware is updated. The easiest way is to format the card first.

When I turn on my Jazz DV 152/ T20 it displays "Read card..." and then nothing happens...I have a 4GB SDHC card by SanDisk...both camera and card are new....is this a faulty camera or am I doing something...


Usually the first thing you need to do with any SD card and Camera is to go into the settings of the your camera and Format the SD card. This has to be done for each memory card you use with that camera. i.e. a SD card formatted on a Panasonic HD camcorder won't work in your Jazz Camcorder. The formatting is different between the two camcorders. New SD cards don't come formatted.
SO try inserting the SD card into your Jazz Cam and rummage through the setting until you find your memory settings. From there find the Format Memory Card function, format the SD Card and you should be good to go.
