    plug your memory card into your computer
    go to my computer right click on the memory card then click format.
    Maybe one of your cameras have a format function on them, go to
    settings and it might be in advanced or memory then click format.

Says not formatted. I know it is formatted and has information on it.


Try using other card reader. There might be a problem on the card reader you first insert your memory card. If you are using these on your camera or mobile phone, try connecting the camera or mobile phone directly to the computer with the memory card inserted.

When I insert my sd card into my camera it says memory card inserted please change to internal ram.. What will I do?


I think you may mean it says 'no memory card inserted...'etc. but most cameras don't need to say this when there really is no card in place - if there is any internal memory they just switch to it automatically. Perhaps the garbled message is because the card is recognised but unreadable so you might like to try formatting it, either by using the (camera's) menus, or by right clicking the card's icon in the My Computer page (on PC), to bring up the format option

My mobiles memory card goes on saying checking memory card or memory card not inserted i gave for service some six times and every time they reinstalled my software thats it. what should i do now?


You didn't mention the make or model of your digital camera; but I don't think any digital camera requires any type of software installed on the memory card.

With that being said, and if I am correct, then you should be able to take the SD card (or what ever type of memory card your camera uses), and plug it into your computer; providing your computer has a card reader.

See if your computer can read your memory card; if so try and cut and paste a simple file onto the card and see if you can save a file onto your memory card. If your computer can read and write files onto your memory card, then a good chance your memory card is good, and there might be something wrong with the camera.

If you can not read the memory card with your computer, then try formating the card (make sure you format it with FAT32). Now try and read and write to your memory card with your computer, if this still fails; then there is a good chance your memory card is no good.

If after formating your card, and the card passes the read and write test, try putting the card back into your camera and see if it works; There might be a chance that the person that serviced your camera "6 times" formated your card incorrectly.

Good luck

When I turn on my Jazz DV 152/ T20 it displays "Read card..." and then nothing happens...I have a 4GB SDHC card by SanDisk...both camera and card are new....is this a faulty camera or am I doing something...


Usually the first thing you need to do with any SD card and Camera is to go into the settings of the your camera and Format the SD card. This has to be done for each memory card you use with that camera. i.e. a SD card formatted on a Panasonic HD camcorder won't work in your Jazz Camcorder. The formatting is different between the two camcorders. New SD cards don't come formatted.
SO try inserting the SD card into your Jazz Cam and rummage through the setting until you find your memory settings. From there find the Format Memory Card function, format the SD Card and you should be good to go.

We insert a memory chip into our Kodak EasyShare C190 camera. The read-out informs us that the memory card requires formatting. We click on "OK." The camera goes into a "formatting" mode, then informs us...


Your camera is only supporting SD/MMC Cards (up to 2 GB) and KODAK SDHC Cards (up to 8 GB).
The card that you currently have might be faulty. Please try another card.
You might also need to switch the camera over to saving pictures directly onto the SD card.1: Menu, Cam settings, Chose AUTO or SD card option Press OK
Note: If the SD card isn't in the camera or is unreadable the camera will automatically go back to saving you taken pictures on the internal memory.

Memory card unreadable, card has wrong format, card is locked


  • 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.

    "Memory card cannot be read"


    My camera used to do the same thing--once I got the pictures off my card, I left it in the card reader, right clicked on removable media (my computer + removable storage) chose to "format" and formatted it on my computer. It seems to have fixed the problem, and my camera now reads it fine. I tried to format it on the camera before, but it didnt work.
