Yes, it does and should be done in the camera and each time you download the images just to keep it in best operating condition. Switch to VCR/Playback mode and reformat the card from the menu option (see your manual). Also note that if you're having issues with the camera reading a card be sure it is one that can be used and does not exceed the GL2's maximum card size (though I don't recall what that is).

The GL2 uses SD cards, which max out at 2GB. It will not use higher-capacity SDHC cards.

Okay!!! So I put in this SD 16gh something card & it shows on the screen of the camera "tv screen" and it has a blue background with green arrows that seem to be uploading something but really it


The GL2 works with SD cards. Your 16GB card is an SDHC card. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work in devices not designed for them. You need to use an SD card, 2GB or smaller.

Formatting SD card


I had this problem too. Some SD cards won't properly format. My trick was I formatted the card in a different device first (canon Powershot A-630) then put the card in the R-09 and formatted it again. it took about 8 seconds for a 2 gig SD card to format.

Card Error


From what I know, and card over 2gb needs a different reader. in this case, I am guessing that the card is an SD card. If you look carefully, you will see HC right below the SD logo. these are High Capacity SD cards, totally, different from traditional SD cards. so what you need to do, is find a 4gb regular SD card (highly doubt one exists) or get a smaller regular SD card (2gb Max I think)

SD Card Recognition


Perform the following procedures when your digital camera does not detect the SD card. 1. Restart the camera Turn the main power OFF, or open the battery cover or SD card/battery cover to remove the battery. Make sure the SD card is fully installed. Then, turn the main power ON, or insert a battery again and close the battery cover or SD card/battery cover until it latches. 2. Initialize the SD card Format the SD card with your camera. Formatting procedures varies depending on the camera model. See the Camera User Guide supplied with your camera for the instruction to format the SD card. When formatting the SD card, slide its tab upward to cancel write protection. It is impossible to format the SD card while it is write protected. 3. Check if your camera detects other SD cards (If you own multiple SD cards.) If your camera does not detect the SD card after performing the procedures 1 and 2, check if the camera detects other SD cards. If it does detect other SD cards, the SD card that wasn't detected may contain some problem.
