There should not be anything to install when inserting an SD card, all you do is put the card in the card slot. If you tell it to format you have to go into the menu first and tell the camera which you are referring to the card or the harddrive. If you didnt change the setting to SD card when you did give it the format command than that is why your data was lost. If you are having an SD card error make sure that the little slide switch on the card is set as not to protect the card that will give the error sometimes. I hope this helps

Error on formating new memory card in camera error says memory card is full brand new card i tried 2 in faact same error kodak c310


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.

You need to switch the camera over to saving pictures directly onto the SD card.
  • Menu
  • Cam settings
  • Chose AUTO or SD card option
  • Press OK to SD card
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.

If you experience problems:

Please turn the lever and try again.

    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.

    6c99e31.jpg

    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

    Low battery maybe? Try holding camera firmly in one hand, with camera on and in record mode, and strike in on its edge firmly on the heal of your other hand. This technique is often sucessful with temporary camer 'quirks' like freezing, lens not fully retracting, etc.

    "Write Protect"?!


    It's the memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.
