Insert sd card again

At this time we recommend you use a different SD card and format it. SD cards can become corrupted and the camera may not recognize your card any longer.

My memory card for my d3100 won't format, I've

Dear Madeline Birch,

I suggest, you use the laptop to format your card. The process is as follows.

- Insert the SD card in the SD Card slot available on your laptop. Enter My Computer, and right click on the icon which represents your card. Format it from there as you would do for any other USB data storage.

If you don't have a laptop, or your laptop doesn't have the SD Card slot. Then, you should purchase an SD Card reader. The process mentioned above would be similar.

If all fails. I recommend you to get another card, as the card may have been corrupted.

Hope I was able to sovle your problem.

Hi sir

  • 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 or
  • 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.

    How do i format my sandisk in my panasonic lumix FX40

    Hello :

    1: Insert the SD card into the multi-card reader on your computer. Most newer personal computers and laptops come with a multi-card reader. If you don't have one , then you should get one ! Just make certain that you insert the SD card into the appropriate slot. A multi-card reader picture is shown : There another types of multi-card reader , so you can choose the best one for you .b74156b.jpg
    2: Right click once on the Windows "Start" button.

    3: Click once on the "Explore" option.

    4: Find the SD card in the "Folders" section of the window.

    5: Right-click once on the SD card icon.

    6: Click once on the "Format" option.

    7: Make any desired changes using the options on the "Format" window. Default options are recommended, but it is possible to change the file system and allocation unit size. If you change any of these settings and want to change back, click once on "restore device defaults." To perform a quick format, click once in the "Quick Format" box. A quick format means only that all files will be removed from the SD card, but it will not be checked for bad sectors. A quick format is considerably faster than a full format, but neither takes too long.

    Click once on the "Start" button on the "Format" window to begin the formatting process. A warning window will pop up to make certain you want to proceed with the formatting of the SD card. Click one on the "Yes" button to move on.

    Click once on the "OK" button on the "Formatting" window that pops up when the formatting is complete.

    Click once on the "Close" button on the "Format" window to exit the formatting process.

    good luck .

    It could be caused by your SD card needing to be formatted.

    Format your SD card. NOTE this will delete all existing data on your SD card.
    Do the following:
    1. Insert the memory card into the camera. Make sure the card is firmly seated (push in the card until it clicks into place).
    2. Turn on the camera.
    3. Press the Menu button, then go to the Setup Menu.
    Scroll up or down to the Format option, then press the OK button

    It is not formatting the memory card? says conitue and then back to it after trying to format, no other message.

    Here are some possible solutions to your error mgs.

    The lever on your SD card might be turned the wrong way so the SD card is reading protective.
    Please turn the lever and try again.
    The SD card might not be supported by the model: Your camera Memory card support is SD/MMC up to 2 Gigabyte and SDHC up to 8 Gigabyte

    The SD card might not be faulty, try another card, since the camera could give you a message like the one you're experiencing.
    Try with a different SD card that is supported by the camera.
