    When I put the memory card in my camera it says needs formatting.
    well when i plug in the card it doesn't show that it is plugged in.
    there is nothing in my computer.
    and when i try to format it on my camera it says that everything on the card will be deleted.
    but i did it anyway, then it says "formating.." but it went right back to the same screen that the card needs to be formatted.
    it doesn't let you preess anything else well it gives me this message so i don't know how i would format it on the card.
    thanks,
    jackie

Well, all I can tell you is FORMAT IT! There should be something in your camera's settings that says format card. If there isn't something in the settings you need to format it by computer. To format it by computer, plug the card in, find it in My Computer and right-click on it. click Format... When the window opens, make sure it will format the card in the needed for the camera. If you don't know, try Fat32. UNCHECK THE QUICK FORMAT BOX! Formatting is formatting, no matter what. Why rush through it and possibly have errors in the future? Now, click format and just wait, this my take a few minutes. When it's done, safely remove the card and put it in your camera. if it didn't work, your gonna have to plug it into your computer and do it all over but instead of Fat32, try NTFS or if your computer has it, fat. I HIGHLY reccommend that you do not do it by computer though. only through your camera. I am 99.999% sure your camera has something in the settings for it. Why yell at you to format it if it won't even give you the appropriate means of doing it?

Hope this helps,
Dan

Memory card says full photos format


Put the memory card in your camera and format the memory card using the options in the camera menu. Do not format the card on your computer. Check the camera's manual how to format your memory card.

Memory card folder changed from EOS to EKS


Have you tried formatting the card in camera? Always format cards in camera, don't just delete all photos.
If that doesn't work, format the card on the computer in FAT32 and then format in the camera.

When putting the memory card into my canon powershot sx20 is i am getting a memory card error


These questions are old, I hope you have found a solution to your problem if not try this. The memory card needs to be formatted. You have been deleting pictures and not formatting, in this case format the memory card. Always format and never format in the computer the programing between the camera and computer are not compatible.

I wud like 2 format another memory card in my qv-r61 but wen i put the card in i can get nothing onscreen to set it up any ideas? it is a Fuji memory card and when put in the camera all i have got onscreen...


Hi, have you tried using your computer to format the memory card, what you need to do is put your memory card into a memory card reader then wait a minute then open up my computer then locate the memory card then right click on it with the right button on the mouse then choose format and format it to fat32 then try it in your camera and it should then be working.

if you have been using a memory card in the camera and still have it then put this in the memory card reader and go to my computer and then right click on the memory card and select properties and have a look at what format that memory card is, and if its anything other than fat32 write down what it is.
Then put the new memory card into your card reader and goto my computer then right click with the mouse then choose format and then choose to format it to the same type as the other memory card thay you know works in the camera, once you have done this the memory card should work in the camera with no problems.

until you have formatted the memory card to the correct type it wont be recognised by your camera so give it a try what i said and you should find you will have no more problems ok.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

My sony dsc-w100 digital camera says format error and hangs on. what shall i do??


Take out memory card from camera, turn it On and check does it show format error?
If yes, press Home, Memory option and format internal memory.
If camera does not show format error then put back memory card in and press Home, Memory card option and format it.
This will delete all files/ data and will refresh memory card, take some pictures and check.
If after formatting, still format error exist, put new memory card.

If this memory card will be connected to a camera you can simply put the memory card to the camera and there you can format it using the camera's menu, you can also format this memory card using a card reader that will be connected to your computer, just put the memory to a card reader then connect it to the computer that way you can also format the memory card....
