My memory card can not be formatted

It is more likely a card error. SD cards for all except the newest cameras must be formatted FAT16. Windows version 9x through XP format FAT32 by default. Some cameras cannot reformat FAT32 to FAT16, so when using a reader, do not format the card on the reader unless FAT or FAT16 is specifically selected. Cards can become "corrupted" if a file is opened for editing directly from the card, i.e, the file was not copied to the computer before editing. Temp or working files can be left on the card if the card is dismounted from the reader before the edited file or the program itself is closed and the working files deleted. Some cameras cannot format in the presence of temp files. Always copy all files to the computer before doing any editing.
A "corrupted" card that cannot be formatted in camera might be resurrected by formatting FAT16 in a reader.
To format using Windows XP, Vista and 7
1. Open 'My Computer' 2. Right click the Drive assigned to the CF Reader 3. Select Format 4. Select the appropriate File System from the drop down list (Either FAT or FAT32; FAT is FAT16, the default for most cards of 2GB or less) 5. Select Default Allocation Size from the Allocation Unit Size drop box 6. Ensure that Quick format and Compression are Disabled 7. Click Start
Good Luck, Hope this helps If so do rate the solution

When I turn it on I get an error message: Error: Reformat internal media as FAT16. If I let the screen go blank then turn it on again holding the button for about 10 seconds it does finally come on. What...

you may need to reformat it according to the computer you are using. If you, just select the drive in my computer(where your hard drive/cdrom/all that **** is) hit format, at the top there will be a drop down menu, click fat16 from there, then select quick format...should fix everything

MP3 Player reads reformat error Fat16. How do I reformat it?

Plug the mp3 player into the computer
Double-click My Computer
Right-click icon of the mp3 player
Select Format
It will give you a choice usually between FAT and FAT32 - FAT is the same as FAT16 in Windows-speak, so select "FAT"

If you have plugged your mp3 player into a Mac, you are out-of-luck.

Error! Reformat Internal Media as FAT16

Wow! FAT16! I wonder why it would want you to do that?

Here's how you do it on a Windows-based OS:
Connect mp3 player to computer
Double-click My Computer
Right-click the icon of the mp3 player
Select Format
When it gives you a choice between FAT and FAT32, choose FAT

Error! reformat internal media as FAT16

There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
