Can't format 2Gb Extreme III SD card in Canon G9 camera

Because the camera simply reports "Memory card error".
Other identical cards work ok in camera.
This card has been used for Vista ReadyBoost but is otherwise new and unused in the camera.
Tried formatting in Vista but no change.
Sandisk RescuePro software does not seem to have a format option - odd.

Did you try formating with the Camera? Before that, Try formating with Windows Disk manager, then format with the camera, It will solve the problem.

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.

I have a canon powershot a520 camera it it says memory card error only when I use the 8 gb memory card?


The A520 works with SD cards. Your 8GB card is actually an SDHC card. While SDHC cards fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work in devices not specifically designed to use them. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Can a 16 mb sd card of a canon zr600 be upgraded to 2gb?


Sure. Simply use a larger card. The ZR600 will work with any SD card. Be careful to get an SD card and not an SDHC card. SD cards go up to 2GB (2000MB) in size. SDHC cards look identical but start at 4GB but will not work with this camera.

Your older camera can only work with 2GB or smaller standard SD cards. It is not capable of recognizing the newer format 4GB or higher SDHC cards. Fortunately, old format 2GB SD cards are relatively inexpensive these days, and may be purchased on Amazon if your local store no longer carries them.

Asking what to do?


8 GB is more than your A540 can handle. You can check with Canon, but I'm pretty sure that the max that your camera will understand is 2GB. Additionally, your 8GB card is most assuredly an SDHC card and not a standard SD card. Your A540 also does not understand SDHC format. The max card that you should buy for that model camera would be a 2GB standard SD card. These are very inexpensive these days and run about $6, shipping included:

Sorry for the extreme delay in answering your question: I've been trawling for old unanswered questions today and yours came up. The following answer will undoubtedly be way too late to be of use to you, but may assist others searching FixYa for an answer to the same problem.

You have been mistaking SD cards for SDHC cards. They look the same but are different, and your camera cannot use SDHC cards as it was designed before they existed. The limitation is due to the hardware in your camera so it cannot be updated to SDHC standards.

Your 2GB card was definitely an SD card as SDHC cards have a minimum capacity of 4GB, and 2GB SD cards are the maximum capacity which your camera can handle. Your only fix is to either stick to 2GB maximum capacity SD cards or to replace the camera with one which is SDHC compatible.

It says the memory card needs formatting but when i go to format it this error occurs, FILESYS ERROR e00100


The Kodak Z612 only accepts standard SD cards up to 2GB. As you rightly point ot the physical charactreristics are identical, its the internal format of the card that defines SDHC.

Standard SD cards use FAT - which has a 2GB limit.
SDHC cards use FAT32 - which has a limit of 32GB.

Stick with 2GB or smaller standard SD cards.

Error message on san disk sd card


You may have answered your own question. There is a good chance that your memory card has reached the end of its life. You might try reformatting the card with the computer and then do the format in the camera. This has worked for me before.
