Question about Kodak EasyShare C875 Digital Camera

1 Answer

I have a brand new PNY Optima SD card I wish to use with my easy share camera. When I insert the card into the camera it says the memory card requires formatting, then continues to say formatting will delete everything on the memory card. It repeats and WILL NOT FORMAT. I cannot even get to the MENU to format the card. I am not concerned about getting pictures OFF the card - the issue is that I cannot format the card to use in the camera. Yet my Kodak manual says I can. Why won't the camera format my blank memory card so I can store pictures on it?

Hi Mr

  • 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.

    PNY optima sdhchd 8gb won't read in my Kodak easy


    What model Kodak EasyShare camera? Some of them only work with SD cards, not with SDHC cards. The same applies to kiosks. Make sure the slot is marked "SDHC' and not simply "SD".

    SD and SDHC 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.

    This error message means that the card is corrupted or formatted for another digital camera. Turn off the camera. Insert a new card or format the card.
    Try to format the memmory card using a card reader and the PC this should solve your problem if not you have to replace the memmory card.

    I have inserted a new PNY optima SC HC memory card and window in camera says "memory card error". Does the canon not take this card?


    Correct. The A510 uses SD cards, not SDHC cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work.

    Have brand new PNY OPTIMA SD HC 8gb Have a HP camera Photosmart R927 Camera reads card is locked. How do I unlock the card?


    Hello

    OK, if the memory card itself is locked, you might sometimes get this error code. All you need to do is to take out the memory card and switch the lever on the left side to the unlock.

    If the error is still displayed after you did the above, you might want to try the card in another camera.

    If the card works in another camera . the problem is with your card reader in your camera.

    If you open you sd slot and look inside with a sharp light , you should be able to see on the left side of the slot there is a little copper or spring steel lever switch. This switch work as follows:

    1. When no card is inserted / no write protection , the switch is open and thus the protection is off.
    2. When locked card is inserted , the tab is depressed and tells the camera that the card is lock.

    Contrary to popular belief ,the little tab on the sd card is not an electronic switch and does not physically influence the card operation itself. If you put a locked card into a camera without a sd lock switch , you would still be able to use the card normally.

    It is incredible difficult to fix this switch because of space limitations in the sd card. Look into the sd slot and if you can see the switch , use a needle to pull the little tab down toward the base of the camera by about 2mm or until it works being careful not to bend it.

    If this does not resolve your problem , there might be a short in the switch circuit and the camera will need to be disassembled to resolve this error. This should cost no more than $50.

    Please feel free to contact me if you need further information

    Kind regards

    Memory card compatibility. camera won't read or format PNY Optima SDHC 4GB.


    Hi,

    I am sorry to say that the C875 is not compatible with SDHC cards. Only SD or MMC cards.
    You can get SD cards up to 2GB.

    This is not unusual in cameras of a few years old.

    Hope this helps.
