Try the sd card in a reader to see if it is not a fluke. If it is still asking for the format then you will have to breakdown! The card is like a drive with no moving parts, It loses the format by static electricity there is no returning the info

My camera doesn't format sd card, cannot use camera

What make and model camera? Are you sure you have an SD card and not an SDHC card?

When trying to playback photos from SD Card, the message "cannot playback image" is displayed. Happens when using more than one SD card, which rules out that it is the SC card that isn't working.

which rules out that it is the SC card that isn\'t working Not necessarily, switching SD memory card from one camera to another without formatting isn't going to happen. If the SD card was new and not formatted in the camera that it's going to be used in then there could be a lot of different errors occurring. Also if pictures were downloaded from the memory card to the computer and the card not formatted this will cause a problem as well. If you have been deleting the pictures files then again this could be a problem the card needs to be formatted. Another IF is if you downloaded pictures from the computer to the SD card and then put it back in the camera without formatting then it's not going to acknowledge the card. If you formatted the SD card in the computer then it's not going to work or work properly in the camera. Picture files can go from the camera to the computer but not back again because the computer operating system and software is not compatible with the camera firmware. It all comes back to format the memory card in the camera you are using it in before taking pictures.

I just got the Kodak Easyshare c142 for Christmas, I have tried 3 new sd memory cards and the camera says they are all unreadable.

Your camera can support SD or SDHC memory cards to 32GB beyond that the camera Firmware can not read it. If you are under the 32GB which by the way is a huge massive unnecessary size for this camera the I'd expect two things are holding you up first is the protection switch on the side of the SD/SDHC card I'll include a diagram. This annoying little switch must be i the forward position to read and write to the card.

Also you need to format the memory card to the camera Formatting cleans the surface and prepare the card to work compatibly with the camera. Deleting pictures one by one does remove the picture but it also leaves a bit of information behind and Formatting removes all this unnecessary information. This also means that the memory card should be formatted each time you download pictures to the computer hard Drive

First diagram is the lock switch.
This is a screen shot of the formatting sequence found on page 33 of your manual

Unable to download pictures into computer, asking for an"A disk


1. Last question first :No, there is no need to format all SD cards every time.

2. Sometimes this happens. I mean sometimes there is a need to format the SD card. Because , may be you use it for other purpose with other electronic items. But if you use it for only taking pictures with your camera then there is no need to format it. When you use it with other instruments then it is better to format the card.

3. You should use one recovery programs to save your pictures. After that you format your card, use it normally as you do before.

Unrecognized format

It sounds like your SD card might be faulty.
It is very unfortunate since the only thing that can help this is to format the card, which will delete the information on the card.

Before formatting I would try to transfer the pictures using a card-reader or go to a shop to see if they are able to retrieve the pictures for you.

Instructions to format the SD card:
Press OK

How do you delete pictures from a sd card used in a bushnell trail camera

The Bushenell Trail Sentry camera does not allow you to delete pictures from the camera itself. To delete those pictures, you need to take out the SD card from the camera and insert it to an SD card reader. Plug it into your computer's usb port and delete using Windows Explorer or any picture management application.

Should you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
